thinkin about high school days

i notice on here most people had a really hard time at school because of acne. it makes me really appreciate how easy i had it in year 12 now when my skin was really bad. people on here say that they got teased for acne and what not. i never once had a comment about my skin. the only comment i ever got was when mates asked me why im always using lip balm and i told em how im on a drug for acne and it makes your lips dry they actually teased me for caring about my acne. all they said was why the fuck would you bother with thats shit who cares about acne. i was more worried about people knowing that i cared about acne than i was about them caring about my acne.

i guess acne really doesnt bother some people that much for example. one of my good mates has prety bad acne these days (alot worse than some of the people on here) and his dad is a doctor. his dad wanted to give him some medication for his acne(he didnt say what it was probably accutane because it is prety bad) he said no way hes goin on medication because he knows that he wouldnt be able to drink if he took it)

he basically would rather have bad acne and still be able to go out and socialise and get shitfaced every weekend.

sorry for the long post im just bored and was thinkin

Pretty good post man. It goes to show that people really don't care about other people's acne. I know a kid that has it pretty bad, but he's really cool, and I could really care less. I barely notice it anyways.

Two important notes!

1: People barely notice our acne

2: Personaly it about 800x more important

I love Linkin Park and that song. It sounds fairly emo sometimes.

As for your first point, that's not the truth all the time, some people might notice but not say anything about it. For example, my English teacher last year noticed a lot of things but she never said anything about it. I mean, teachers haven't exactly said anything about my acne and she treated me just like the other kids as if I didn't have it.

However, it might make job applications harder or internship harder. It's one thing if you're smart, but it's another thing if your smart and pretty. For example, Dr. Cameron on HOUSE was picked cuz House liked a smart and pretty girl. Now, you could argue that's TV and not real, but really, some people just don't give up smarts and a nice look.

On another note, none of my friends have said anything about it or made fun of me but they do once or twice tell me to try to get a treatment or try to do something about it. I mean, it's not a diss, but more of an encouragement.

I never got commented on my acne even when it was really bad. The only ppl that comment on acne are asshole shallow ppl. Or ppl that just dont think. Like oooooh you should try proactive.... Ya thanks asshole Ill get right on that.

yea of course good lookin people are gonna have it easier innitially but looks are only gonna take you so far, they migt get you the job but if its an important job that requires some actual skill that they wont last if thats all tehy have is looks. as for the smart people with the looks also well theyre lucky sons of bitches than arent they. side note

out of all my freinds the ones that i think are the smartest are definately not the best lookin, the ones i likehangin around more or the funny/witty ones or what not are definately not the better lookin ones. in my group of reinds the guys that are the best lookin are the dumbest and the most boring to be around (like if the other guys werent there i prob would never hang around em) and out of my mates the best lookin ones do pull the most and hottest chics however they are only casual chics not serious relationships. and when these guys do have serious girlfreinds no offense to em but when i meet thier girlfreinds yea there hot but fuck no way would i date these chics. my mates who arent that good lookin with girlfreinds i envy much more because while there girlfreinds arent that hot ther so cool to be around.

another side note:

in my vast life experiances (all of 19 years)

i have found the stereotypes to be mostly true

really hot chics/guys-either prety dumb academically speaking or dumb in a real world sense of thngs. these are the people most boring or annoying to hang around. and yep most times up themsleves and only care about looks when lookin for a gf/bf

average lookin people-most times smarter/funnier/beter to be around

i say mostly because obvioulsy some people are the whole package right smart funny good lookin blah blah blah

I agree with you. I'd rather have a girl (who's a friend) who's not smoking hot but pretty or even a few pimples (the such, etc.) and have a great time, then this dead gorgeous girl who I just can't resist but to stare and to keep on thinking about banging her all the time. Even if I didn't have acne, I'd think that same way.

yeah, I share your views on looks and how much personality a person has. i tend to believe less attractive people have to develope better personalities and i don't think many people would argue with that. however, i wonder how much of my belief in this is sour grapes for being unattractive. perhaps i'm overly malicious and just looking for a way to get back at all those beautiful people i envy so much. well, i hope that's not true. i do know some pretty awesome people who have the full package, so i wouldn't say that prettier people are almost always more dull. but, i could be wrong....there's no real way to decide the matter objectively.

i think its more of where you sit on the social hierachy(sp?) than weer or not people notice your acne.

for example, if youre on the football team ad have bad acne, you're cool who cares about acne.

if you're a nerd with bad acne, youll hear about how bad your face is.

either way, people notice. i think anyway.

i dunno at my school no one really took any notice of anyones acne. i remember there was a chic that had really bad acne but she was still considered really hot. (well she was still really hot) i think at school people just knew that your a teenager and thats wat happens to some people. out in the real world i thnk it effects you more

Yeah, I totally agree with that. They will notice it but they may not talk about it. That's the key part. The talking about it because i'm sure everyone notices it.

No one ever mentioned my acne...it was mild, but no one other than my MOM did...lol.

I was always hit on and stuff like that.

And you're right, WHO CARES about acne, it doesn't define a person.
