    Eye Shadow

    I want to make up my mind but I just can't. I simply cannot find the right shade of lipstick to go on my frontal lobe, and I can't seem to decide what color eye shadow works best on my occipital lobe.  My hands tremble, making it really hard to apply mascara to my medulla...

    Indesiciveness Sucks

    I have such a hard time making decisions.  I hate it!  I always second guess myself.  What if things change?  What if I won't be happy?  I'm sure you know the drill.
