Day 139 - Bad Habits

    Newer Older

    I don't bite my nails and I never have. But when I get stressed out (like now!) I do start chewing on my lips and the inside of my mouth without even realizing that I'm doing it... pretty awful. Sometimes I'm kind of oblivious to how much it's actually affecting me until I realize that they're completely ragged.

    Moving right along with this slump :)

      yeah, same here alice... that and some impending college applications.

      but overall, I've just been really burned out lately and I haven't been keeping up with things like I should've been. I have a really big research paper to write, a big literary essay (plus a 500 page book to read), another book, a bunch of makeup work for a science class, some makeup work for my cinema class, and other stuff to do all in the next two weeks. And then finals. And then I'm leaving the country for nine weeks. ACK.

      *dies*

      sorry 'bout the life story!

      About 30 or 40 years ago I told my little sister that I would never date a girl who bit her nails . . . ever since she has had beautiful nails, and reminds me why every once in a while. I should have told her I would never date a girl who chews tobacco.

      OMG so soon!!! please let me know when you're going!!! We will actually be on the same time zone!!!

      we gotta arrange something... anything...

      and as for biting stuff... I bite everything... nails, lips... skin around nails... which is why for a while I had really ugly thumbs... it's all too tempting to bite or pick at the skin until it bleeds.. disgusting I know... I solved it momentarily by having acrylics... since my nails can never be sharp enough to peel the skin.. but now since I'm growing my nails out and giving them a rest... the problem seems to have come back...

      jcrowley - thanks for the anecdote :) haha, hindsight is 20/20

      amelia - the people I know who are serial nailbiters have a really hard time quitting, too.

      zacko - why thank you!

      chelly - hehe, aw, thank you :)

      amalia - I brushed 'em right before I took it! And several other times. Excessive toothbrushing heroes unite!

      steph - I never noticed :D but yay, sisters!

      alan - LIES!

      stef - omg! ahaha, best club ever. And thanks! I wish that it were real instead of painted-on.

      voicesbybrian - haha, yeah... not so pretty without the red layer over top :/

      sarah - EITHER WAY IS GOOD TO ME :D

      nikolina - thank you!

      jack - me too, I thought about that afterwards :)
