    The real thing I hate about coldsore besides

    the fact they are hideous is that I can't smile like I usually do without splitting my lip open. I miss smiling. I can't wait for this little buggar to disappear. =D

    this past weekend was super frustrating

    and no one could bring me out of my bad mood. I went and grabbed a coffee at a local coffee shop and the girl who served me took one glance, ran around the counter to give me a hug and smiled. that's all it took to get me back to smiling.

    Me in reflection: Crap I smile to my device

    screen more than to real people. HALP HALP HALP. Me after 10 seconds: Oh. Okay. Life goes on. No one cares if you smile or not. It won't solve the issues you're having.

    Smiles certainly are impressionable.

    I get and give them almost everyday, typically with Staff members too old for negative impressions and young prejudice. And they even know my name, I have more status with those over the age of 35 than I do my easily amused peers. I almost wouldn't prefer it any other way and I...
