first group project of the year and half the group doesn’t show up to the first meeting
great start to the semester
there are some things about peoples appearances that you just don’t comment on - like acne/pimples, body hair, scars, ect.
something that really bugs me is when people point out when my face goes red
i’m just the kind of person that gets embarrassed super easily and because im really pale it shows a lot (and i go red when i’m warm, which is like all the time)
and by acknowledging my redness you are actually making it worse because then im embarrassed because of the fact that i’m embarrassed
long story short: just don’t comment on peoples appearance unless it’s positive because sometimes it just really sucks!
All of it matters.
