This may sound silly, but I have a confession to make. I blogged awhile ago about make-up, and the article saying it was an addiction. I totally disagreed with that statement, saying it was impossible to be addicted to something that wasn’t bad for you. I mean, most addictions are bad, right? Since then I’ve had plenty of opportunities to go without make-up. Like today. I wasn’t going to go anywhere, mostly because I don’t have a car. So, I figured today was the perfect day not to wear make-up. After exercising, I took a shower and fixed my hair. I was thinking of all the time I would save by not putting on make-up, and before I knew it, I was putting powder on my nose and mascara on my lashes. It was like…I had no control. I didn’t go all out, I just put on a little, you know, to make my complexion look good. Plus, it has sun-screen in it for going outside. There’s nothing wrong with that, right? So am I addicted to make-up? Maybe it’s just more like a habit. Like reading books. I love to read books. I read everyday. Does that mean I’m addicted to reading? Come to think about it, I guess I’m addicted to a lot of things. Like sleeping, and eating, chocolate milk, diet soda, etc, etc, etc. So maybe I don’t need to confess! Maybe I am addicted to stuff! And maybe…it’s okay!
