"It's a lie to think that you're not good enough. It's a lie to think that you're not worth anything. You know, it's scary to know how many girls have eating disorders. It's scary to know how many people actually feel like they're worth nothing. Every single girl right here, right now. I want you to know that YOU. ARE. BEAUTIFUL. And you boys. You da man."

I'm actually surprised that I'm updating right NOW instead of a few days ago considering I'm at the end of my mid semester break. Anyway, I'm off to KL tomorrow and will be in a crap-load of work.
Something occurred to me today. A very close friend of mine asked me a question a few months ago. It was a question that pretty much caught me off guard. We, 2 friends and I, just finished dinner. After sending one of our friends home, we were on our way to send my other friend home. My friend of 12 years asked me a question that I never thought she'd ask.
"Do you think I'm beautiful?"
We were lucky that I didn't swerve off the road. Really caught me off guard. Anyway, I answered......(I'm paraphrasing here)
Beauty is quite a subjective term. Ever heard of "beauty is just skin-deep"? Some people just think beauty as just a pretty face. The physical properties of a person. But what's the point if a person's outer shell is a sight for sore eyes but the inner shell gives an eyesore? Nak senang kata muka lawa tapi perangai macam longkang. Call me old-fashioned and kolot but it's my opinion.
To me, being beautiful is being your true self. Not trying to impress anybody just for the sake of wanting to be accepted.
So anyway, naturally, I told her that of course she's beautiful. It could've been me being biased 'cause we've known each other for a long time but I was telling the truth. People have their own interpretations of beauty, their own way of making themselves the personification of beauty. All I'm saying is stay true to yourself and you know what? To hell with those haters.
Gotta go and get some work done. Final year, baby!
See you guys on the flip side!!
P.S: I'm sort of trying to stay awake by doing this post
