    Is There Anyone Who Actually Likes It?

    Just sayin'... Ok yeah, knowing EP there probably is. And it took me until now to look at the pic for this experience, stare at it in horror, sit up in my chair and squint at it, before realising it was indeed NOT a guy peeling a layer of skin off the girl and both of them...

    Of Course!

    It was a cold day so I didn't think I needed sunblock and it was too cold to be in the shade so what'd I do? Sit in the sun. Big mistake. I didn't even notice it until some time late. It hurt like hell! And sleeping was the worse! I love sleeping on my back but had to sleep on...

    The summer I was 17, I went with a mob of other teenagers to a water park.  Being the bubble-head that I was, I managed to forget to bring sunscreen.  Being seventeen and immortal, I decided to do without.Have I mentioned that I have extremely fair skin?Eight hours in the water...

    Grrrr. I Hate Them Sooo Much

    Yeah sunburns really are annoying but those that blister so you can peel are fun.   Kinda gives you something in those boring times.

    Too Painful

    I'd been to three beaches last month. The first time put me into a severe flood of excitement which made me care less to the scorching heat of the sun while I played with the waves. I bathe in the sun from 10am- 1pm while wallowing with the water. The pain won't subside for...

    Hate It

    Ever since I was little, I've always burned really easily ....I can just never seem to put enough sunscreen on. I remember this one time... I went to an all day out doors concert and it was ridiculously hot. Well stupid me... only put on one thin layer of sunscreen that whole day...

    Painful

    People often tell me, - you're so white, - you are as white as a ghost, - don't you think you need to take some sun?  Yes, I do think these comments are annoying and I am a white and not that white.  I never liked taking the sun but I won't lie as I tried a few times...

    I also hate it when people don't know how to spell words like 'grammar'. Of course, the title of this experience might have been intentionally ironic but I doubt it.
