Wasting 4 Years Of My Life.

For 4 years I had braces. Before my teeth were hideous, afterwards they were BEAUTIFUL. I mean, straight Barbie teeth. I was in 7th grade and was obsessed with them so I refused to cover them with that ugly retainer. I wanted them to shine! So of course my teeth shifted. THANK GOD they didn't shift completely back to what they were but they're definitely not "Barbie" teeth any more. The four years wasn't a complete waste but it unfortunately didn't live up to its full potential. Thanks to stubborn ole me.

I have been wearing glasses ever since I was 15. by the time i arrived at college, I really wanted to lose them, but how do you do that when you really need them to function daily? I had invested in eye contacts for the first time this year and when doing so, I felt prettier. I was so used to people knowing me as the girl with the glasses that i started to purposely put myself out there for people to see the real me and once I did that, I....lured a few creepy men. one had actually kept riding around at least three times and that's when I realized this was not worth it. I have contacts, but I do not wear them. :p
