He had rosacea before it was cool.

I had completely forgotten how strange middle school boys are. Were the girls as weird? How did we ever grow up to be the normal, well-adjusted, gorgeous people we are today? Oh, wait...

In any case, as I was observing the courting rituals of one seventh grade boy and one seventh grade girl this morning I was caught off guard by the awkwardness of their encounter. Here is an excerpt of the conversation I caught as I walked by:

Girl: "Jenny and I called your house the other night. Your mom answered, so we hung up."
Boy: "Really? She didn't tell me someone called and hung up."
Girl: "Yeah, we were playing Truth or Dare and I dared Jenny to call and say she had a crush on you to see what you would say."
Boy: "Really?"
Girl: "Yeah."

A few nervous giggles ensued and then the bell rang for homeroom.

But right as the bell rang I had this major flashback to my first middle school "boyfriend". He had the obligatory braces. He was shorter than me. He wore Skidz and listened to Vanilla Ice. And he had rosacea before it was cool.

Wherever he is today, I hope he knows that nerds are in. Geeks are awesome. And I have high hopes for all these middle school boys and girls that are just testing out the waters. Hang in there, it really does get better. Honestly.

Okay I gotta say it. Look I don't know what fairy-tail world this boy lives in where your mom gives so much as a skid mark in your jock-strap to await the moment in which she can divulge this morsel of useless info: "Oh! Guess What?!?! SOMEONE CALLED, AND THEN, HUNG UP!!!!!" Uh ya, I'm thinking that's not gonna happen. But let's give the kid credit for at least coming up with a response, and not just making some kind of man grunt noise.

Many people feel that their title="acne" href="http://www.skinmed.co.uk" >acne< is overly

embarrassing and
unmanageable. I have read story after story of heartache, especially
from teens that endure heartless bullying from schoolmates. There are
so many different remedies and medications. What most people fail to
realise is that each individual has a different biological makeup and
what works for one person may not work for everyone. In some cases
certain acne treatment can adversely affect already irritated skin.
This further causes unnecessary embarrassment and frustration to an
already uncomfortable situation.
Propaganda fuels misconceptions about different so-called remedies and
even causes. The idea that chocolate and oily food causes acne. When in
truth, makeup, unhealthy skin and even perspiration can cause acne.
All of these factors affect the skin. But even your skin makeup can
affect your skin and create back acne, scalp acne, large assesses or
ingrown hair. There is an acne questionnaire done by a company called
Skinmed that will help to diagnose acne problems through a series of
questions, and then it n recommends the best acne treatment for each
individual.
Teen acne is typically the most difficult to diagnose because of
hormonal considerations, but there is a special area meant just for
teen acne that has a completely different set of rules when running the
formula that determines the best medications or treatments. In some
cases simple changes in hygiene and daily washing is all that it takes.
The site also has a title "free acne/rosacea cream" title="acne"

href="http://www.skinmed.co.uk" >free acne treatment/a that is made up
of a three step process. The primary reason most teens, especially boys
tend to have more problems with chronic acne is because of a lack of
simply washing their face regularly. So this treatment is free is a way
to create a healthy daily routine, while gently healing the skin to
prevent acne scarring brought on as a result of squeezing the sores.
Once daily cleaning is practices, and hormonal issues are taken into
consideration, a proper treatment regiment can be highly affective.
At the end of the day most acne, even teen acne , can be eliminated
quickly and permanently with the right motivation. After all, we all
want to be beautiful don’t we?
