1.) I am 35 years old will be 36 on September 26- take note. I am 5'4". I do not, however, weigh 100 lbs like my drivers license suggests. Sue me- I was 8- 9 months preggers the last 2 times I had it renewed and I SURE AS HELL wasn't going to put that weight on it! So I just kept it the way it was from when I was 16.
2.) I have an unusually large forehead- one that resembles that of a receding hairline, but it's been this way since I've had a hairline. I've never thought much of it until recently. Tyra Banks was defending her big forehead and how she had been made fun of for it, then I realized some people are probably a little freaked out by it- I guess it does kind of look Star Trekish. Then a few months ago, I was getting a haircut and (I HATE BANGS because I have a horrible cowlicks that cause bangs to look like a have the letter 'M' sitting on top of my head) the stylist says, "I'm gonna cut you some bangs because it will hide your really big forehead- you know you really have a big forehead!"- HONEST TO GOD! She said that to me! I have since been trying to grow out the bangs- thanks, you untactful bitch- in some cultures, a big forehead is considered a sign of beauty and intelligence- I don't know... but it could be!
