    Only In the Summer

    As I have dark hair the hair on my arms is noticable. I'm not ape-like or anything (Or EWOK like) but I just don't like them being there...so every summer I shave all the hair off.. I don't mind so much in the winter as they add a little warmth LOL!

    Did I Just Admit That?

    Why? Not sure... not a hairy person, not a dark haired person. So why do I do it? Guess I just like the smooth look and with arms covered in freckles it's just cute. OMG I'm a freak! LMAO  And I love it!

    It's not exactly true,

    because I wax my arms, so the result is the same: my arms are hair-free. My arms were the last parts of my body I made hair-free. I started to shave them because other body parts of mine were smooth and hairless for years, and it was funny to see me with slightly hairy arms...

    Sometimes

    I shave my arms sometimes even though people tell me you're not supposed to shave them. I don't know why, I just like the way they look and feel when they're shaved.

    Since I Was Twelve

    I've been shaving my arms since I was twelve years old. I have dark hair, and my twelve-year-old mind told me that it (the hair on my arms) made me look ugly. I didn't realize that shaving one's arms wasn't necessary. I do it almost every day now, because it grows so fast due to...
