Please help a scrub
My entire life I have been a struggling tomboy. Struggling in the fact that although my nature is to be one, I secretly wish I were more of a girly girl while being ironically proud that I am not. Strange, I know.
Anyway, I have been feeling like a total scrub. This is not helped by the fact that I wear scrubs to school almost everyday. They are blue and Abe calls me a smurf. I remember there was one lone girl smurf and although she wore lipstick and high heels, that still doesn't make me feel very good about my appearance. Besides, the odds aren't very good that I even get to be her.
My goal this year was to "take more pride in my appearance." I haven't been very successful. I usually wake up as late as possible, choose which pair of scrubs to wear (cherokee or landau...big choice), and put my hair into a ponytail that never stays how I want it. Sometimes I attempt some eye make-up but usually this seems pointless when I am dressed as described.
Anyway, I am wondering the secrets of the chronically beautiful...you know those girls who always look great. They must put in the time and effort to do it but I just feel clueless. Thus, I put together my first featured poll. If you are on the run, as I often am, what do you do to feel as beautiful as possible considering the circumstances? Or, is hygiene and beauty so important that this is never the case?
Please, share some info to help out a poor scrub. I want to enjoy my beauty (or any potential of it) while I am still young and have any to speak of!
