    I'm too chubby to be a skinny chick,

    but I'm too skinny to be a chubby chick! Lol really? Does it matter? I love myself and everyone as they are, this flesh puppet is not who we really are. It's whats inside that counts. I have an amazing spirit, as do we all. Love and appreciate this life (:
