Cosmetics

Most little girls play and pretend with make-up as a child, and want to wear it out and about before they should. I wasn't one of those girls. I think of myself as a tomboy growing up. I loved basketball, loved being outdoors, had the highest metabolism EVER. I had moments where I would dress up in my mom's old wedding gown, but they were rare, as much as I can remember, and that's not saying much considering my memory hasn't been so great lately. That sucks because I'm still young.

My point is that I never was so much into make-up and growing up to wear it and attract the boys and everything like I've noticed a lot of my friends and other girls were. I was a late bloomer I guess you'd say. I didn't touch makeup really in high school, and really didn't start investing my time in learning about it until college. I was all natural for the most part. And I didn't care. My high school years were a hard time I remember, and although I had many great moments, I wasn't the happiest. I know that much. I had many emotional rollercoasters throughout those years, and as much as I miss it, I wouldn't go back and relive those. I would go back and change them though if I had the chance. I'm completely diff. from who I was back then, and of course, that has to do with being out on my own, my college experience, and everyone I've come into contact with since then. Not the life I pictured, but it's been a good journey so far.

I just wonder what make-up tips, hints I don't know. I'm still learning since I got a late start. Am I alone in this, late to make-up and such? I feel out of place posting a blog like this but I'm honest on here, more so than maybe in real life sometimes. I don't care because I know a lot of my true feelings come out on here and I like that. I've always felt out of place and trying to figure out how to fit in and I'm surprised I got such a late start, but now I'm putting it out there.

A lot of girls are starting to look older at an even younger age and I can't believe that. The media has been changing girls into women overnight and it's really bothered me. I wouldn't want my child appearing older than she was. Let them enjoy their childhood. I mean, I know I'm only 24, but I miss my childhood and playful carefree days even now.

Now a days, I see very young girls with cell phones and purses and I wonder, "What's the use in them having either of those? What has the world come to?" I know even people must have been shocked with my having a cell phone my senior year of high school, but things have surely come a long way even in the past 6 years since then.

Ok, so maybe not as young as in the picture, but it was a point I was trying to make :)

Anyways, I can't believe how much this world has changed since I got out of high school, even college. Everything appears so different, and I'm not sure whether I like it or not :( Is the world going downhill? Is this just my vision, and it's somehow altered?
