    I'm Vain But It Doesn't Mean I'm Also Shallow.

    I was a very unattractive child. My own mother often told me how ugly I was. As I grew older, very thin with buck teeth and way too much body hair for a kid, I was teased at school and made to feel less than human because of my looks. Times changed, I developed, I learned about...

    I Can Be At Times

    It's not just about liking to see myself or listen to myself talk or enjoying the compliments I'm given (oh, do go on). There are many times when the things that I do are completely useless or even detrimental, but I do them anyway just because, especially because, someone tells...

    Is It Me?

    Is it because of something that I did or said -- or who I am -- that made my friend not talk to me any more? Or does it have nothing to do with me, and she is just busy. I can't help but feel it must have something to do with me. That is vanity, though, isn't it?

    I'm totally vain but not to the point

    where I'm arrogant about it. I just enjoy taking pride in myself and the way I look. Why do people shun it so much?

    IM So Mean
