    Royal Pain In The..../

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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
