In all the time that I was in high school the only degrading comment about my appearance was about my eyebrows. This one ugly girl (not exaggerating, she got hit with the ugly stick HARD and probably multiple times) who had NO eyebrows except a thin line of single hairs, with the others growing in, told me that I had ugly eyebrows.

They were unruly. Unkempt. Ugly. Not at all attractive.

Firstly, it bothered me that these older guys were laughing after she had said that. And this was when I was much shyer than I am now. I thought those boys were laughing because I was ugly. But truth be told, I was hot.

5ft5, curvy, long blonde hair, big blue eyes, sweet smile, shy. Tan.

So it wasnt me they were laughing at.

In fact, most of highschool I was good looking. I had quite a few admirers (who never stepped up and said anything, only found out after I was older, fatter, and dating Hubby. Thanks for the useless information.)

But for some reason, that comment really bothers me. I obsess over eyebrows now. I am drawn to people who have great eyebrows (Jillian Michaels, Kirstie Allie) and repulsed by anyone who has dead caterpillars for eyebrows.

I miss you high school body. It was less than 5 years ago I had you. I will get you back though. And I can't wait. Come back to meeeee


  1. You are gorgeous.


    I don't think that girl is the cultural eyebrow icon. (he he)

  2. I too have major hangups on my brows!

    I pluck them excessively. Like everyday... twice. Boy do I feel exposed. I never received a comment but I too have the hangups.

    Your HS body will return. don't worry :)

    I still can't figure out how to make your blog updates appear... (Grrr @ my update thing)


COMMENT. You know you have an opinion, air it!
