Hand Creams and Such.

December 12, 2009

Yeah, I know. I waited more than a week and the one time I post something, it’s about this. But, in fact, it’s a more pressing matter than it seems.

Every winter over the past couple years or so, my hands get REALLY dry, and usually shea butter works. One year even longer before that I tried aloe vera (and so now I have this massive thing of unscented, colourless aloe vera that refuses to run out. Sometimes I put it on my zits because it said on the back of the bottle that some people do that but it doesn’t always help them) but this year I don’t know what I’m going to do. I tried shea butter. I haven’t tried aloe but I don’t feel like it this year. And usually my skin changes its tolerance to certain stuff; either I’ll be allergic to something one day or I won’t. Either a hand cream will work or it won’t. Either it stings on my hands or it doesn’t.
I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one with this problem, either.
Just saying.

17 days until my birthday. (December 29)

13 days until Christmas. (December 25 but I don’t think I had to mention that)

20 days left of the decade.
20 days and I will have lived in three different decades!! (the last 6 years of the 90s, all 10 years of the 00s, [awkward typing 00s, am I the only one who wonders if we’re going to keep calling them the two-thousands until the rest of time? Not like the decade after next could be refered to as the twenties?] and then I’ll have the 10s ahead of me! And many more decades, but these three make me feel old before I am.
And now I have to be thinking about resolutions, not just for the year, but for the decade!!!
What am I going to do to make this beautiful world a better place? How will I make people happy?
I just realized that I will be 25 by the end of the 10s. Where the heck will I be? Will I be happy? Will I be making people happy? Will I be in people’s history textbooks? Man, I sort of hope textbooks aren’t used in the future so much. My guess is that it’ll all be online. And that the world will be run on fiber-optic light energy and that cellular telephones might be banned due to the amount of cell-related lawsuits. (Or maybe it will be for instant-messaging or something else along the lines) And maybe I will have a book published and my blog will have more than one subscriber.
[Hint, hint. You know you want to 😉 :P]

Merry Holidays,
Alex Violet
