I've had my ears pierced since August or September, and I frequently switch my ear studs to keep the holes clean. I was pretty sure they'd healed up properly enough, since I've gone a few 12 hour stints within the past four months without wearing any earrings at all (partially due to a cooking competition, another couple times was because I was at my gran's and I forgot to bring my ear studs so I had to go without for a night).
Somehow, my right earlobe got infected. But, it's mostly better. Yay for rubbing alcohol and Neosporin (the antibacterial gel stuff?), if it hadn't been for that I never would've been able to get my ear stud back in. It hurt like hell, it was bleeding and I think it was, like, REALLY infected or something because, well, it was oozing. x.x
But, like I said, it's mostly healed now. Still a little tender, but I can touch my earlobe without it hurting now.
I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!
You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
