uh oh....I notice a lot of people feeling worse recently, let's hope things improve for all of us soon. I found out today that I did not get chosen for a job that would have improved my quality of life (financially, mentally, in so many ways). It was a very competitive and selective job, and they told me I came second...which doesn't make me feel any better because I still didn't get the job.
Acne-wise, my face is reflecting my mood: shitty
I'm sorry about the job. I know how much it sucks to get all hopeful and then lose the opportunity. But I've found that when something like this happens, something even better is usually right around the corner. Like a couple weeks ago when I was working on that incredibly confusing application for a writing job and I eventually gave up. A few days later I got another offer for an easier and more fun writing job related to travel ! (Something I was more interested in than the first thing anyway). The right things will come to you, don't worry.
Update on me: Having a great day. Slept in, completed a few assignments and made some money, washed my hair and did a deep cleansing treatment and took care of my skin. No active breakouts right now and my food-related breakouts are swiftly healing. Just a few pits and red marks left, but they aren't bad at all.
I am a bit depressed about the texture of my skin. A year + of horrible cystic acne will definitely leave it in less-than-idea shape. It's true what they say, you really do begin to notice the scars once you become clear. I feel great about how I look from afar, but up close or in certain lighting it's just like *CRINGE*. The fact that I'm getting older and I've smoked a lot probably doesn't help. I think I'm going to order some vitamin c powder and take a lot every day to try and improve my collagen. Hopefully the AHA will continue to help, too. It definitely fades red marks, but I'm not sure what it's doing to help my deeper scars.
