This entire project is turning into as much of a confesstional as an artistic endevour. The reason I began the project was that I hoped that through materializing the thoughts about things I really care about (love catagory), things that I just enjoy or that inspire me (like catagory), & things that REALLY bother me (discust catagory) that I would come closer to understanding & finding myself. I figured to do that I have to be completly honest with myself & you all as well. I have TERRIBLE acne. I've suffered through it since I can remember caring about what I looked like. I know it sounds vain, but it isn't just because it looks bad. It seriously hurts. The slightest thing can seriously irritate my skin. Sometimes it aches. I've even been on medication for it. Nothing works. I do everything I can & it never gets any better. Sometimes I wish I could just wear a mask or a hijab, like a muslim. But I can't cover up my face. On really bad days I don't even want to go to school. I know I sound completly vain, but if you've never had horrible skin you just can never know what it feels like to want to hide your face.
Some of you (if anyone actually reads this) might be thinking, "You have self portraits on here... Your skin looks fine..." I promise I'm not blowing this out of porportion. There is a thing god blessed mankind with called photoshop & without it I WOULDN'T have self portraits on here.
