  1. I admire people like that so much. They're naturally really cool, accepting people as well. It's not hard to see why they're liked.
  2. Hahaha, yeah I had the joys of night markets. They're very... Interesting. ;-). endersshadow, I know what you mean about being the time to grow up. Perhaps I should clarify, I'll be doing volunteer work for the year I'm in South America. I graduate this year from university and I'll be working in my field so it's a logical career step. I don't think 22 is an age bracket to really stress about careers yet though, provided you're taking the steps. You either travel young or old if you want
  3. ... And it was GREAT! To give a brief background, I'm 22 and I suffered from severe acne from 13 to 20 and moderate acne till 22. Ironically, I've cleared down to a mild condition... Since I've been back. Good timing, huh? I was lucky enough to maintain a very large social network through high school and even a couple of girlfriends despite having severe acne and I put this down to ensuring I always had a positive, welcoming attitude and a love to laugh, whether at myself or by making funnie
  4. Cool song from Jay-Z. Nas always was better though. Illmatic rocked. EDIT: The cynic in me thinks that Jay-Z would have taken quite a large royalty from Proactiv to drop their product name in. What you think? Snoop was taking royalties for dropping 'Big Mac' into his rhymes. Damn mainstream rhymes. He used to be good.
  5. I approve of this post. It extends to people in general. When you have acne and you end up with a lot of friends, you're naturally surrounded by a lot of cool people that aren't judgemental. Nice post, EddieE.
  6. I totally understand people getting down in the dumps over acne, I totally get it. I was there once and still have down times. But at some point you've just got to say, "Fuck it!". I'm 21 and still have very moderate acne, just reduced from severe. However, I'm a positive outgoing person (through choice) and life just isn't that bad. I have hundreds of friends and many girlfriends (...oops) and am travelling as much as I can (Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand in December and then Tanzania, Afr
  7. Fucking.... Wow. I have no idea how you could have handled that, I really admire your patience and calm temperament. Especially from a FRIEND. There was a lad who started hanging out with my crew for a little bit who made a cutting remark about my acne that was much less offensive than that and I punched him in the mouth. It was good, none of my mates stepped in or did anything about it when he was whinging and whining. He just stopped hanging around us... I do regret it now, though. So b
  8. I can see why people believe the 'big-pharmo-asshole' theory. But think about this; Imagine if a company could create a cure for acne and sell it? Imagine the market. In my opinion, if there was a cure there'd be someone selling it for sure. We'd know about it.
  9. I'm a rapper in my spare time. Recording a demo tape at the moment. I spend a lot of my time in a home made studio and writing or reading associated topics to my rhymes (politics, religion, etc). Other than that, aquariums, drugs and parties .
  10. Hey man, I use Nivea's line of tinted moisturisers and they don't break me out. Give me a lot of shine though but good red mark cover.
  11. I completely agree with you. This is what annoys me about the Western world. It only matters when OUR citizens die, right? Not the massive amounts of people our ignorant countries are murdering in cold blood overseas. Millions of families destroyed, a country on the brink of a humanity crisis, .... NO wmd's found. Good move, USA. As if. Don't get me wrong, it's a tragedy that people were killed in 9/11. But where are the tears for all them people dead overseas? Where are the tears for
  12. Yeah, but he won't know if it "isn't his style" unless he tries it. Maybe a whole world of fun will open up to him? It did for me. But I'm known as a bit of a "party guy"... I tend to throw a lot of them. Go to a party! Have some fun!
  13. Nice writing, man. But damn I hate this emo trend. Maybe that's why you're lonely? I know my mates and I would never want to talk to the dude cloaked in black, trying to be hardcore.
  14. I'm going to go against the grain here... High school parties were fucking awesome. I had terrible skin, I just didn't really let it get to me. Can't say the same for now... But, anyway! High school parties were great. A lot of drinking, good times, chatting with random people, discovering what partying was all about. Due to the bad skin, it knocked out the dating and sex element... But, it was fun none the less. Made a heap of good friends. Just start going to parties, man. You'll ha
  15. Good post, Dee. Not cool, Sid. Think about it, mate.
  16. Nothing to do with acne, but one of my mates back when we were at school was called a 'nigger' by his teacher (obviously the lad is black). He just hit the dude in the face and broke his jaw (he was a big lad). You could always do that. Then again, he was expelled and charged with assault.
  17. I'm going to have to disagree with the above poster, sorry, haha. I'm a big fan of protein shakes, I take 3 a day and it doesn't seem to break me out. I also drink a lot of milk though, so I know it's not an acne trigger for myself. I stopped breaking out once I started taking a LIQUID CAPSULE multivitamin (the pressed pills don't get digested properly), a zinc supplement, fish oil supplements and the antibiotic Ethromycin 400mgs (behind the counter in Australia). Take the shakes, man. If y
  18. Yeah, not cool. Very unprofessional. If the kid was writing some song about fat people it would have been erased. On the topic of the white shirt from lost and found... No chance. You shouldn't have worn it. I suppose it's easy to say after leaving school, but you have to stand your ground on those things. In my opinion.
  19. I went into the club strip a couple of nights ago for the first time in a while. I used to be quite a regular there... I don't know what happened, my acne got a little bit better (still bad) but I felt worse about it and didn't have the courage to go. Strange shit. Anyway, I've been working my ass off in the gym for the last 6 months. I used to be a really skinny guy with acne, not that I'm big now... But I'm not as skinny as I used to be. . I ran into a lot of people I used to hang with in
  20. How big are you and how big are they? How many friends do you have and how many of them is there? If violence isn't your thing, understandably, you do need to confront them about it. That kind of behaviour is unacceptable. Hit them back hard and make sure it hurts, even if it's not physical.
  21. Hey man, forget about acne. It doesn't even matter. In high school I was the oily, pimple faced kid with a small frame (under 60kg's). I was still quite popular... Because I didn't let it effect me. Talk to everyone, be cool with everyone. If someone gives you shit just cut them out of the people you talk to. Keep everything positive and positive things will happen. On a sidenote; start lifting weights NOW. Up your meals to 7 or 8 servings a day and lift 4/5 times a week. Heavy weights
  22. Really? How much of a risk is it? It seems to be effective... Why would dermatologists recommend it? What is rosacea? Please excuse my ignorance, I know nothing on this topic.
