A Treatment For Keloids May 26, 2014

When my keloid was small, I would klasfgcover it with makeup. As it grew, I started to cover it with a band-aid, dodging people’s questions by making lame jokes about the rapper Nelly. Eventually I grew tired of the questions and the stares, and I started to wear only high-necked shirts that kept it covered.

Keloids are tricky from a dermatologist’s standpoint. A keloid is essentially a wound that doesn’t know it has healed. It’s a scar, but it continues to grow because the mechanisms that control tissue repair go into overdrive.  Attempts to surgically remove a keloid usually cause it to grow back even larger – again, it doesn’t know when to stop healing.  Keloids are not just a cosmetic annoyance; they itch constantly and send sharp, stinging pains through the skin. They’re more common in people of Asian or Black heritage, usually appearing on the chest, shoulders, or…

(PLEASE) don’t be that guy March 19, 2014

You know what grinds my gears?

That one guy who poses as prince charming all the time. You know.. the one who is TOO charming, it’s annoying. Like, you know he’s just trying super hard, and wants to act like your savior so that then, I guess, you owe him something. Like a date… One that you clearly do not want to go on. You’ve made it crystal clear that you’re not interested in him and yet he STILL does all these annoying things to make you think that you need him. Or that you need saving. Being over-protective, like he’s your boyfriend, but covers it up as “I’m only watching out for you,” AGAIN like you need saving. The one who brown-noses all the older married women in the office (or wherever) to prove that he’s this amazing guy us younger ladies should be dating making them feel sorry for him because us younger gals won’t date him, and then guilt-tripping us for not flocking to him because he’s what we need.

Here’s what I have to say you to you: STOP. Just f*ing stop. I don’t owe you anything, I don’t want to date you, stop doing things for me like you’re my boyfriend and then expecting something back. I can do things for myself. Stop trying to get people’s pitty and making ME like the bad guy. What you’re doing is borderline controlling and very condescending.

and one more thing, I don’t need no damn saving. I am independent and confident that I am not missing out on anything you think you have to offer to me.

 

5 Words Of Advice On Getting Your Heart Broken October 18, 2013

1. You can only mask your feelings for so long.

Drinking, partying and eating or not eating your feelings away gets old really quick. You aren’t going to just be OK instantly, but adding self destructive behavior is just going to make more issues for yourself and your current ones even harder to deal with.

2. Don’t blame your decisions on your current mental state.

Trust me, you just feel worse after. At the time you will give yourself ten reasons why whatever thing you are doing is justified (sleeping with someone you shouldn’t, eating a tub of ice cream in bed, wearing the same pair of yoga pants for four days). These things aren’t helping you and by you just dismissing it as “I’m a mess right now” you are going to let yourself perpetuate that behavior. You are stronger than you think.

3. Stop overanalyzing.

This is one…

10 Simple Ways To Make Yourself Happier October 17, 2013

As a senior in college on the brink of real life (read: paying for college loans, having to find a real job, finding a decent apartment, etc.), feelings of happiness are often pushed aside to make room for stress, anxiety, and worry. Happiness seems like this unattainable state of being that requires a lofty to-do list. But, it doesn’t have to be. Here are ten things you can actually do that will actually improve your level of happiness.

1. Delete your “friends.” There’s no need to have 2,000 friends on Facebook. Keep the people whom you actually communicate with and care about and ditch the girl who triggers body envy, your younger brother’s middle school friends, and that guy you met at that bar that one time.

2. Create things. Whether it’s writing a blog, making amateur watercolor paintings, or just cooking yourself a fancy dinner, there’s no greater satisfaction…

37 Books For Kids You Need To Re-Read As An Adult September 26, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — dsahagun89 @ 6:12 pm

Thought Catalog

1. The Velveteen Rabbit

Because it’s a masterclass in how to write beautiful novels for small people, a heartbreaking tone poem that still resonates.

2. Harry Potter

Because it’s even more magical than you remember.

3. The Phantom Tollbooth

Because it’s like Lewis Carroll without all the jabberwocky and drug references and begs to be adapted into a live action-film. When that happens, you’ll want the book to be fresh in your mind.

4. The Giving Tree

Because you can’t let Ryan Gosling be right about that book.

5. Goosebumps

Because some of them don’t age well (Calling All Creeps is undeniably silly) but others (like Ghost Dog) will still keep you up at night.

6. Charlotte’s Web

Because it’s a heartbreaking lesson about love, loss and moving on that so many of us are still working on learning. Warning: Just don’t read it after a breakup.
