I have bitchy resting face for sure, and friends and strangers and teachers, etc. all have felt the need to comment on it. I'm actively trying to change my resting face, but how do you adjust your natural facial expression? No, seriously, how? Now I just look dumb slightly tilting my head my smile just looks like a grimace.
@cosmia Starting my sixth internship in a few days (and it's only the second paid one) sooooo yeah, don't feel bad.
@TheclaAndTheSeals Ugh I knew a guy who said that! And he was all about preserving "natural oils" by not using shampoo and stuff. I was like, then why is your hair greasy and gross??
I dated a guy for a while who did not smell nice, mainly because he rarely washed his shirts or showered. And I have to say that as much as I liked him and overlooked the B.O. issue, it was still An Issue. And I think that's normally considering how important smell is in affecting our brains, emotional connections, memories, blah blah blah
(It didn't help that I was/am someone who is very concerned with personal hygiene when around people I'm into)
@Linette LOVE those books! I have not researched cherries jubilee because I want it to be preserved in my book-memory forever.
@Scary Wollstonecraft That's a really good quote! I definitely agree.
@packedsuitcase That's a really good tip! Especially for someone like me, talkative and sometimes afraid of silences. Thanks!
@rosencrantz I love doing things alone! It took me a while to work up the courage for certain activities but I'm so happy I have: concerts, movies, exhibits, lunch, etc. The first time I went to a concert alone (at the Paradise, what up fellow Bostonian!) I ended up meeting a cute guy then meeting the band! It never would have happened if I'd been with people.
I heartily recommend traveling alone. I did two weeks of traveling in Europe last summer and loved it. So many fantastic experiences I only could have had by myself!
@terrific I don't have any advice, but I feel for you. I'm sorry you're in such a sucky position. You'll find something!
@eleventyone I worked at a summer job at my university, where my boss believed it was her job to mold us all into better people/in her image. It was really fucked up. She would tell me all these things that were wrong with me and that I needed to change that had nothing to do with work and everything to do with her feeling superior by faux-mentoring me and everyone else without our permission.
