We went to my husband's 20 year class reunion. We hung out all day at a picnic, a concert, went to lunch as a group, all kinds of casual stuff. For dinner, I traded my glasses for contacts, put on some subtle eye makeup, and wore a padded bra under a snug black dress. When I got to the dinner, I had people doing double takes - some didn't even recognize me! I got tons of complements (from both genders) about how well I 'cleaned up', and at one point two guys started getting aggressive about who got to dance with me next. A part of me enjoyed feeling like I was in a John Hughes movie, but I'm also sad for society if the only way we can find someone attractive is with petroleum products and stuffing. And, a small part of me wonders what would have happened if I had gone a step further and really glammed out - like actually washing and styling my hair, and wearing lipstick (instead of lip gloss)!

My dad asked me this weekend if I was going to "that thing where you burn statues in the middle of the dessert". :) Nope, not going to Burning Man this year - but I love that my 75 year old dad is doing his best to keep up with what goes on in my life, no matter if he 'gets it' or not. Go dad!

A relatives mother was saying how her daughter had lost so much weight she was a size 6, which is great IMO. But she said she spends 3 hours a day at the gym to stay at that size. =(

I was bullied in elementary and middle school. Frankly, I'm glad I didn't fit in in that stupid little town. If I had fit in there, I'd still be in a place like it instead of having left and become succesful in a real city.

Someone I hugely dislike recently gained a lot of weight. She hardly looks like herself. Is it messed up if I use that as motivation to lose more weight and make sure I look better than her?

My bullying stopped when I changed my appearance on the outside. I got contacts and stopped wearing glasses. I started wearing makeup and wore cooler clothes. Then the bullying stopped and I started making friends and boys became interested in me. But I was still the same girl on the inside. It still makes me sad that I was bullied to the point of contemplating suicide.

I always like when people post their cooking pics on FB. Way better than the attention whoring crap I see. Or the duck/fish faces women make when they post selfies. I tend to gravitate towards people with calmer FB statuses. Everyone else gets the hide button.

I have a nice small group of close friends. My one friend in particular is a wonderful person inside and out. Though sometimes I find her energy to be a bit draining because she tends to focus on the negative and comes off as a bit needy. Since I'm very sensitive to someone's aura, I feel emotionally drained after I spend the day with her despite the fun that I have. I hate being the negative one because she always says how positive she feels after hanging out with me.

There was an obnoxious boy in high school who I hated. He spit on me once in the lunch room. He died a few years ago after binge drinking and not knowing he was diabetic. A lot of friends on FB were posting condolnnces and I just didn't care. He was so rude, disgusting, and obnoxious. A true bully too. I don't relish in the loss, but I didn't feel anything at all.
