Final Japan Photo Post

Tuesday December 30, 2008 comments   

The new year is fast approaching and I vowed to finish posting my photos of Japan in 2008 :good::exclaimit: I’m looking forward to 2009. What will it hold? I’m just happy to be spending the New Year with my family!

I’ll see them for the first time in over a year :supercry: I’m feeling a little blue today though because I’m mad I’ll be seeing them with a face full of acne!! I had been acne free (thank you Clinique’s 3-step Acne Kit) until I used Murad’s evil-ass Optimal Skin Health Treatment. The next morning I woke up with acne ALL OVER MY FACE. And not just little pimples, huge, deep, painful cysts! UUUUGH! SO PISSED OFF! It hurts so much too :facepalmcry::F Throbbing and inflammed. I know it sounds gross but that’s what it did to my beautiful skin! I have 9, yes 9, swollen large nodules on my face now. The biggest on my chin which makes eating and talking painful :kanjicry: My acne kit is doing a good job at keeping the outer inflammation at a minimum, but I can still feel how inflamed it is under the skin. I hope it goes away ASAP because I’d hate to have to go to my doctor just to clear this shit up.

Anyway~ that’s gross to talk about but I just want to say fuck Murad, I’m never trying their shit EVER AGAIN. I took some aspirin so maybe it’ll help with the pain & swelling~~ :dizzy:



There are 35 photos (sorry to kill your bandwidth.) Mostly random things~ but i tried to post them in sort of batch order~ :sketchheart:

Jesus Diamante
This was on the last day so I was TOO BROKE to even buy a $100.00 hair accessory :down:

Angelic Pretty
