    Burning, No Fun.

    I can't tan either. Well, I burn so easily, and then it forms this really weird tan line afterwards.

    I Tried

    I Always Burn

    i never seem to tan atall, i just always burn and its sooooo annoying at times, cos i'll burn and then go completely pale again, and it just looks like i've never seen the sun, or when i am burnt, that i've seen far too much of it.....its so annoying!

    I Can't Tan But I Don't Mind

    I'll burn and tan by accident but you'll never see me in a tanning booth. Skin cancer at 21? Biatch, please.
