When I was in high school, I was sooooo fat, clumsy, wearing eye glasses, awkward, wearing pony tails all the time and unfashionable and that reached until college. It was so sad because the clothes I was wearing then was just old clothes from my cousins and aunts. I was so fat because I want to eat a lot and my glasses? good thing we used to have the same eye grade as my mother's and she always lend it to me. We were so poor in other words and most of them did not understand my situation. I was even being the subject of betting games and bullies. When I got my first income from my first job, my mom said, you need to enjoy your blessings first so that is why, I asked my friend to scout for clothes, make-ups and parlors. Grooming myself is one of my habits and I don't regret what I did, but still my family's needs is always my priority. My former classmates saw me anywhere and they did not believe that I was once a geek...
