smile. camera's flashing, everybody's watching.

we are expected to be so perfect. we wonder why there is so much pressure or where this mindset even came from. really?? um...look through a magazine. even look at the front cover. walk into abercrombie or hollister, where everything in there is a size xxs. and even the things they have in medium and large are still like 3 inches wide. so either those of us that aren't "xxs material" or that don't wanna wear skin tight clothes have to get like 6 sizes larger, which makes you feel fat or...do you see how this works? i went into the aeropostale outlet this weekend. there was some cute stuff in there, but i didnt buy anything. because everything i held up was either too tiny or else i had to keep grabbing sizes bigger. the second part wasn't actually a huge deal, because i am pretty secure with my body, but it was the principle of the thing, so i put down all the clothes i was looking at and bought a $5 necklace and walked out. :)
but i still have a problem with this. will it ever end? or are we stuck with being brainwashed with unattainable "perfection" for the rest of our lives??
