My 30 Day Experiment
So, up there is my face...
These pictures were taken about 10 minutes ago. I have no makeup on, it is completely clean. And....there's obviously a problem here.
I get these ginormous zits, that HURT, and are not very pretty! They don't go away for like...a month. No exaggeration. So I was reading online and it looks like a TON of people swear by honey masks. They simply coat their face in honey for 30 minutes to an hour. Well, then a TON of people also swear by Aspirin Masks. Where you dissolve aspirin in warm water, to make a mask. They suggest that people with sensitive skin (me) only do this 1-2 times a week. So I decided for 30 days, I'm going to do a honey mask 6 days of the week, and 1 day of the week I will do an Aspirin Mask. And maybe, just MAYBE, my face wont look and feel so darn bad. I know that some people have worse acne, and I feel so bad for those people. So, if you're one of them- maybe try it with me! Anyway...I really hope this helps. I read that it doesn't prevent acne, but it manages it quite well...as in- it will bring a white head to the surface quicker, it will make the zits not so ginormous, decrease inflammation, etc. So those things could greatly help.
I am currently sitting with honey slathered all over my face and part of my neck! It actually feels pretty stingy...which I wasn't expecting. So hopefully that's good. I surely don't want to go to work tomorrow with a irritated face.
So I took my test a week ago. I don't find out my score until the end of September (LAME!). I felt...okay. I mean, I didn't feel like "Oh no! I don't know anything!" but I also didn't feel like, "YES! I know EVERYTHING!". So...who knows. I felt about the same as the other tests...so hopefully that means I passed!
I painted my piano....and boy is that a story. So I spent ALL day Friday, half the day Saturday...and the piano looked LOVELY. I loved it. So to finish it up, I decided to spray on clear gloss paint to help protect it. The can said, "Fast drying, non-yellowing" and I'm pretty sure it should've said, "Don't use it if you don't want yellow splotches!" Cause guess what?!?! I sprayed it all over and what do I see after I look back at it? YELLOW SPLOTCHES ALL OVER MY BEAUTIFUL WHITE PIANO I JUST SPENT TWO DAYS ON. Oh my heck. I was pretty depressed for a minute. But then I just decided, well...I guess I'll just get another can of white spray paint and spray over it...then re-glaze it. GEEZ. But I'm happy to report that finally, TODAY- it is all done and put together just waiting to be brought inside again! Yipee! I will post a pic after it's inside.
I haven't been studying for my next section yet cause it's scheduled for October 19th...so I figured I could use a tiny break. It's been so nice! But probably next week I'll need to start it back up again.
What else what else. I'm just so happy because Clay and I both are feeling lots better lately. I finally feel like it's all working and we are going to get better. Such a comfort!
Well...I suppose that's all. OH- Bachelorette...I was so pleased with the outcome. I hope they make it. The odds are definitely not in their favor...but you never know! Till next time.
