  1. So I'm back home after midterm week. Surprisingly I didn't break out from stress, which is what I usually do. The reason why I started accutane was because of a ridiculously cystic breakout after finals week. When I went to see my dermatologist, she was surprised that my skin was doing so well.

  5. I'm currently on my 27th day of Accutane! ~Woooh go me!~ I was planning to start my accutane journal on day one, but didn't think too much about it.
