Coping, repressing, OR BOTH? The Life Story
How OK do you feel with your outfit being complimented in public? I get the impulse to do this now and again and I always stifle it because I worry I am going to make someone feel anxious or even scared. I think I would be OK with it myself if it were not some random guy in a place that made me feel vulnerable — I generally enjoy it when someone is like, “Hey, I like your ___!” — but obviously there is a line one can cross.
The last time I really wanted to be like WOW! That is an EXCELLENT outfit!! was when I was on my way home after work and this dude in the crosswalk had on a pair of boots and jeans so good I wanted to pull him aside and ask him where he got them. But then I realized that guy was Michael Pitt and I just kept walking O___O
Distract myself until it doesn’t bother me anymore. Usually this means reading, listening to music, or talking with family about something unrelated.

Look what is coming along nicely in preparation for Fall! I stabbed myself under the nail with a safety pin and I can’t sew to save my life, but I am happy nonetheless. Still a work in progress.
Assuming infinite money? Rick Owens, Ann D, Rad Hourani. But at my current income level I couldn’t answer that question. I haven’t seen anything consistent enough to earn my loyalty.

Yes, and they’re at a 0.
I plucked off half my eyebrows for last week’s photoshoot so I may as well have fun with them while I can.
I’d shave my head and buy a wig. I’m pretty attached to my hair but it didn’t cost me money to grow.
God no, I would never. My hair is everything to me.
No, I figure it’s from my various vitamin deficiencies since my GI tract has spent many months infected and inflamed and thus rendered very bad at doing its job.
Man, if I don’t bother to blow dry and style my hair you can really tell how much of it has just fallen out.
