I’m a little sleep deprived right now. Because of this I have funny stories to tell you. The other night I was studying late at night and needed a snack. I decided to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and went back to studying. I ate the sandwich faster than I should have, licked the peanut butter off my hand because peanut butter should never be wasted, and fell asleep with a book on my head. Cool. Right? So I woke up at 6 am the next day and got dressed. I looked in the mirror as I was putting on my mascara and realized I had a huge, huge, huge red spot on my check. I immediately panicked because I realized at work we were taking photos and I really didn’t like looking like a red crater hit my cheek. I put on zit cream, I stared at it, I put an ice cube on it hoping it would take it away.
I then got to work all dejected and accepted that I was going to have a gigantic spot on my face in all of the photos. I went into the work bathroom and gave myself a pep talk, “You can face life like this Alissa. You really can. It’ll be OK. You graduate in 30 something days and no one will ever remember you as the zit faced girl.” I sighed. I can do this. I mentally put on my big girl pants and walked out the door. I scratched my face and accidentally scratched the massive cheek crater thing I had going on.
I looked at my hand and realized it had something on it from my face. Great. I’m probably bleeding to death through this zit popping. I went back into the bathroom. GUESS WHAT GUYS? TURNS OUT IT WAS REALLY DRIED OUT STRAWBERRY JELLY AND NOT A ZIT CRATER. I washed my face, looked at myself in the mirror and wondered how on earth I am about to graduate from college if I can’t figure out what is a zit and what is dried jelly.
