    It's Human Nature

    There is nothing to be ashamed about. We are all built differently, it's how one chooses to convey those feelings that has more of an impact on the masses.

    Honestly, I Do!

    I am the first to admit, that a good looking guy can almost always get my attention! I do notice beauty on the outside and how! =p But, my shallowness is very small scale (or I like to believe so!) because being pretty isn't enough to KEEP my attention. If it were true, I...

    Of Course They Do!

    I am not wholly shallow and do value a great personality just as much as looks but i truely believe we all have some shallowness in us. For instance i like to keep fit and healthy and i value my own body because you only get one. Medication and surgery will only get you so far...

    March 22, 2011  While I'm far from beautiful, I don't spend a lot of time ranting over how little attention my plain-ness affords me. How can I complain, when I know that the same shallowness which no doubt contributes to others ignoring me lurks within my own mind as well...

    Shallowness Is Sanity.

    Religion, romance, philosophy, art... None of those things do much more than scratch the surface of the human mind, because under that surface there is nothing but an animal. A creature that is not evil nor good, but merely selfish. None of us are as deep as we think we are...

    There isn't a person on this planet who doesn't have something beautiful about them. Only problem is it takes someone else to see it in you.
