Overall, it makes me sad that I did this for so many years. And the consequences are something that I’ll have to live with. At the time I thought it made me look thinner (especially after gaining the dreaded freshman 15) and it hid my acne scars a bit better. I was too busy looking at the present me in the mirror to worry about what the future me would see.
So this Summer at the beach, you’ll find me in a one-piece (remember this post?), covered in SPF 70, wearing a big floppy hat and sitting under the umbrella.
Join me, why dontcha?
