It all started on Sunday… I had the day off, so after sleeping in I spent a few hours just bumming around the house. During that time I decided I was extremely bored and should do something fun…like put on makeup. I rarely ever wear makeup, but I’ve always had fun doing it. So I spent about an hour getting a shower and getting myself “all dolled up.”
After I was done, I decided to send the above picture to my boyfriend along with the caption “sometimes I get bored and cosplay as a girl.” His reaction wasn’t what I expected, it was even better. He ended up telling me that we needed to go out to dinner, so we made plans to meet in Robinson and check out the KMart that’s going out of business and head to Outback.
It was an awesome night. Seto has always called me beautiful/pretty/cute/etc, but the whole night I would catch him staring at me out of the corner of his eye and a few times he just stopped and told me again how nice I looked. I still have quite a few issues with my body and my self-confidence, so him actually stopping and telling me how good I looked basically sent me over the moon. Just one more reminder of why I love him so much and am so happy that he found me.
Unfortunately my awesome story ends there. Apparently while everyone else was thrilled that I wore makeup, my body wasn’t. I woke up the next morning with 8 little pimple-like bumps on my forehead. I’ve never had an acne problem, so I didn’t really think much of it…I do occasionally get pimples here and there, no big deal. I put some of my Philosophy: On a Clear Day on it when I got up and before bed and didn’t think anything of it.
The next morning, those 8 little bumps had turned to more like 20 little bumps. I figured it was just a bad breakout, so I decided to go a little stronger and put some of my Mario Badescu acne treatment on them. And once again, overnight things got much worse to the point where on Wednesday morning my entire forehead was covered in bumps. Over the course of the day they started to get red, my skin started to get splotchy and it began to itch.
By Thursday morning I was desperate. My whole forehead itched and felt like it was on fire and all the bumps were bright red. I ended up going to Ulta and talking to the staff there and they ended up recommending something called Juice Beauty: Organics to Clear Skin. Its a certified organic beauty line and this is their acne system. It’s supposed to be really good for sensitive skin and I could take it back within 60 days if I didn’t like it…so I decided to try it out. I used it Thursday and today, and I can already see an improvement. The bumps aren’t red anymore, they barely itch, and some of them have even gone away. I’m not saying this is my cure, but so far it seems to be working…still gotta give it some time.
But, with my head woes seemingly coming to an end, of course something else has to happen. Today before work I decided to head to the store and grab a soda and something I could snack on over the course of the night. But as I’m crossing the road to the building, I hear the sound of a car to my right, and turn my head just in time to get plowed into by a bright red Kia. An elderly woman had been driving down one of the parking aisles and didn’t even look before she turned out onto the road…running straight into me. THANKFULLY she can’t have been going more than 5-10 miles an hour and did notice me in time to slam on her breaks. Still, she hit the right side of me and knocked me down pretty hard. I’m not sure who was more shaken up in the end, me or her. But aside from a couple bruises and some minor aches, I seem to be okay. Provided my injuries do not worsen by tomorrow, I won’t be pressing charges against her. I just really hope that in the future, should she choose to continue driving, she is more careful and actually pays attention to where she’s going rather than staring off into the distance as she drives.
Isn’t my life eventful guys?
