Miserable On Halloween

So this halloween, i figured a costume that involved a mask would be best so that i don't have to wear makeup or feel too self conscious, boy was i wrong. I wore the mask to work because i work with kids so everyone dressed up. I wore the mask most of the day (i took breathing breaks) and i had a fairly good time scaring the kids and taking pictures. At night, we were having a halloween carnival at my job and i was assigned to do the lemonade stand with my crush at work dry.png

WHAT THE FUCK.

it was even more humid at night so i had to keep taking the mask off to breath (revealing my acne prone skin). He kept trying to make conversation but i was acting like a complete freak. I made zero eye contact, acted awkward, and kept trying to sound boring so he'd give up talking to me so that my self-esteem could endure less agony!

Let's just say it was a long night and i went home with my brother (who works with me) very very upset and sad. I felt SO defeated. When my skin is decent i'm so much more tranquil but when my skin is bad, i'm stressed. The embarrassment and self-loathing afterwards truly ruined my halloween.

Now I don't know how to act when i see him at work again...

Don't be too hard on herself. You're not alone. I feel horrible if I wake up with a new pimple. It's like the whole day just goes to shit. On days like that I just put on as much make up on that sucker as I can and keep going on. Primer, foundation, concealer, powder....whatever it takes for it to stay covered up so ppl that talk to me don't notice how bad it really is. That's my advice.

As to your crush, what I would do is apologize and say something like "Oh, i'm sorry I was so rude to you yesterday, I got a bad grade on my Algebra test and I'm usually the best student in the class..." or some other funny excuse that will get the conversation going. He'll forgive u. Hang in there :)
