    And I'm Not, Really...

    Yeah, there are things about my appearance I would probably change if I could, who doesn't? But overall, I'm content with my body, at least appearance wise. I'm pretty thin, but I'm also not a stick, and it requires very little on my part to keep that in check. Like I said, there...
