At 25, I am still getting zits. As a teenager, I didn’t have bad skin, but I wasn’t little-miss-porcelain, either. I had had some of what I would call “normal” acne, but nothing that made me want to stay home for fear of putting out eyes. Now, as an adult, I still get breakouts every once in a while, and it Bugs. The. Hell. Out. Of. Me. This is ridiculous; zits aren’t a big deal, but I hate having them on my face – even little bitty ones. Does one ever stop getting zits?

Ms. Lazy-Pants:
Instead of loading pictures onto my computer from Oz, trimming them down to comfortable sizes, and posting them here, I played Sims 2 all weekend. The pics will be up soon, just when, I cannot say.

At the bar on Saturday night, Amychan was talking crap about crap. From what I recall, it was all rather funny. I wish I could remember what she said. Gee, that makes me sound like a drunk. I’m not, really. The music was loud, and there was lots of stuff going on. Shaddup.

Though I just got back from a holiday abroad, I am feeling rather jealous of my friends Sara, Corey, and Zach, as they are all in the UK right now, just on a little romp before starting their respective jobs in France. Am I wrong to be jealous?

Today is Monday, which means that work will go quickly, so I can get back home to play Sims 2 more. Erm, and go to the gym.


zits - it is actually quite common for women to have zits until their twenties. some women have them into their thirties.

i think the only real remedy is time - waiting for the hormones to settle down a bit...if you really want to know why you have zits, it is quite easy to see a doctor to check that your hormone levels are normal (or at least getting there).

i was the classic nerdy pimply teenager in my youth...but nowadays i know why have breakouts - usually it is a combination of stress, hormones and bad nutrition.

*I* was talking crap about crap? At the bar? Friday night? Since I was in fact quite drunk, I hope I wasn't making too big an ass of myself. If you should happen to remember and want to clue me in, that'd be RAD.

I'm older than you, and I've recently begun to get bad breakouts as well. And when I was a teenager, I WAS the girl with the perfect skin. I guess it's revenge!

lol. Zits are never a thing of the past with ladies. At 19, I'm still getting them! :)
