    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...

    I can make up my mind and I don't like people who are not as decisive as I am. It's not that hard; you either know what you want or you don't. If you don't, it is not that difficult to fake it. People who can't make up their minds just show others how weak they really are. A...

    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.

    I'm Never Sure Of Anything!

    But I think that's normal for a lot of people. I don't have any life-altering decisions that this has affected as of yet, but it's usually the little things that are difficult for me to decide. For instance, my hair. I am never sure how I want to get it styled or colored. One day...
