    They're kinda noisy... Probably due to the high ISO. Use a tripod and a longer shutter speed so you can lower the ISO.

    On the ones taken in the mirror, I would flip them 180 degrees so all the writing isn't backwards.

    Whatever software you have should be able to flip them. It's usually right by the rotate button. This is how you do it in GIMP (which is free, if you don't have it download it here.)

    The tripod will let you use a lower ISO, which will lower the noise.
    Your shutter speed will be longer with the lower ISO, but as long as you can stay still for a half second or so, that won't be a problem.
    Use the remote or the timer.

    Adjust your white balance, and don't do "myspace" style.

    LOL


    Try setting the camera up on a tripod with either a remote shutter release or a timer, at least that way you can try more poses than 'the camera at arm's length' standard myspace self portrait.

    +1 on setting to the correct white balance. Thye look so orange because that's really the color of incandescent lights, our brains automatically make an adjustment for that but the camera doesn't.

    The second and third shots are oof. Even better would be to have someone else make the images rather than self held shots.

    In the first one, you needed to get some light in under the ball cap. Something white in your lap or propped up on a table would work. The focus isn't to bad on that one. It's just very obvious you're holding the camera out there at arms length.

    What's the catch light low right in your eyes there? The TV?

    I'd help out with some editing to give you an idea, but you don't allow that.
