tuesday june 9

today i went through my usual morning routine, showering, eating, and eventually brushing my teeth before leaving for school. when i finally brushed my teeth, it was the first time i'd really looked in a mirror all morning. shockingly, my entire face was covered in a peeling sunburn, making me look like some sort of deformed freak. i found some skin lotion and managed to minimize the damage on my forehead and nose, allowing myself to feel comfortable about leaving the house. however, it left me slightly worried about coming that close to taking off for a full day on campus without once looking at the image i would be presenting to the world all day, and made me rededicate my commitment to mirrors in the morning.
