interesting, is that where the trend of using make up to round their eyes more comes from?

The story of Norton, Emperor of the United States and protector of Mexico. A good read.

It is a bit of a shame this, how so much of the world's standards of beauty have been impacted and altered by this, leading to people trying to look like something they aren't. Don't get me wrong I'm all for people having the freedom to do what they want with themselves...but I kind of feel like accepting your natural beauty is important. Pale skin was obviously valued in Japan long before any kind of western influence, but it's quite the opposite with the eyes, very small eyes used to be valued as the most beautiful (which makes sense since they naturally do have small eyes). But when something unnatural or rare to a population becomes the new standard, we see all these eye surgeries and other such nasty things which are usually only ever done for shallow reasons.

The problem is we've created a business of trying to make people feel inadequate enough that they have to spend money on a variety of products and take measures to change their appearance to be more in line with what the media bombards us with as the target look constantly. Yet, the girls you see on magazine covers don't even really exist themselves. They're all the products of photoshop and editing software. Living up to these false idols is an impossible carrot on the stick climb to buy and kill yourself into making yourself into something you're not.

Can I be happy for no real reason. Because I'm fanfuckingtastic. Ok so there is a reason. I have done almost everything I set out to do that I knew I could do. Things I wanted and things I wanted and should have done. From doing what makes me happy to fixing every bridge burned by my dad to fixing a few bridges of my own I burned. While I am awaiting the sythe I enjoy every moment I can open my eyes. Borrowed time means every day is a gift. Too long it was wasted on being emotionally attached to forums which I broke out of. (stupidest shit ever..god damn forum lol). I now live a quiet relaxing life. At this stage all the "excitement" I seen. Boring is how I like it. I love it and so much just makes me wake up and grin like a dumb bastard every morning...then you realize shit I gotta piss bad. \:D/
