Why I haven't been on as much

I haven't been getting on RS or on Sal's as much, as I am trying to focus on college. With me screwing up my first year, I think I really need to focus, and get my GPA back up. I am currently enrolled as a 3rd year, at a 2 year college (though from what I have seen, alot of people have attended this college for more than just 2 years). I can either graduate next year with my 2 year degree, or transfer colleges, and right now, that has been the big question on my mind. The problem is, that the college I would transfer to is almost 3 or 4 times the cost of my current college. But the reason why I wish to transfer, is simply to get away from my home. I feel I would do better in my academics. That being said though, I have been spending my money much too freely, which I am now only spending on gas, drinks (Mainly tea and drinks other than pop), and occassionally food when I need to (I live at home, so food is provided. Sometimes if I go to college early, or stay late, I get food at the college, or intown.)

 

So onto my college life. Like I said, I have been putting more focus in college, currently getting a 99.2% in my Accounting class, and though I did have a rough start with my Art Appreciation class, I got 100's on the last 2 quizes, as well as on a paper. My problem is with my Final Paper, which is a 7 page paper comparing and contrasting 2 paintings from a Museum we went to. I am not finding any resources, so I feel screwed for that paper. Also I am taking a Business Law class, which I'm not doing so great in, since it is literally just lectures and tests over anything in the chapters. We don't have any homework or papers for that class, and no guidelines for the tests, which are 100-150 questions, which I am not good at.

 

And finally, I have been having issues with acne more than ever. I have tried a various range of face soaps, and Clean and Clear, as well as having tried dabbing Lemon Juice, or Apple Cider Vinegar on the areas. But, no luck. The acne is still there, and nothing is getting rid of it.I also have changed my eating habits, taking in less oily foods, not to mention sweets, not just for the acne, but to help me lose fat. Though I don't feel I am too heavy for my age (185 lbs and 21 years old), I recognized that I have been eating unhealthy, and need to start eating healthy. I am beginning to worry that my stress is what is causing the acne, which could be why it isn't going away. If that's the case, I'm going to be stuck with it for a while since right now my life is filled with stress, and likely will be until I graduate with my 4 year degree, and even then, I will be stressing finding a job in my field, and settling in.

 

As for right now I have been stressing out about getting good grades, my job, and family issues, as well as finding out some of my friends aren't actually my friends.

 

I'm sure some of you expected to see something about a girl. Well, there is a girl I have been becoming close friends with, but she is happy with her boyfriend, and I want her to be happy. Though their relationship has been in rough waters lately, I want it to work out for them. Well, sorry to disappoint, but I am actually avoiding that, and just worrying about college right now.

 

Well, that's all. Hope you enjoyed reading (lol) but I am going to bed now, because I stayed up late tonight doing homework, and have to wake up in 4 hours for work :P

acne is caused by an overreaction of the skin pores on testosterone

 

there is jack shizzle you can do about it that makes a serious difference without big time side effects

hence lots of those meds became illegal

 

food etc doesn't have that much of an impact really, it can make it worse yeah but it can't make it go away

 

and also don't believe the fiddlesticks about it going away in a few years, it doesn't

 

so better get used to it and really don't spend too much money on skin products, they don't work that much better than a normal bar of soap

Get salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid) wipes, wipe down your face before bed. Then apply a cream with citric/lactic acid (alpha hydroxy acid) in it. Put a light sunscreen on in the morning. Wash your pillow case weekly.

 

Face care 101.

I had acne so bad I went to a dermatologist and she prescribed these pills I had to take for 3 months. Horrible stuff, makes your skin super dry and you can't have any alcohol while taking them, but it's cleared up entirely. The pills could apparently cause miscarriages so big time side effects is not an understatement. They worked, though, which is nice.

they are however illegal anywhere but Belgium, the Netherlands and a few other countries. Or as my doctor explained it: 'if you take these say bye bye to your balls" so 'can cause miscarriages' is a wee bit wrong, they mess up your sperm bad

I meant miscarriage purely for women taking them, I didn't hear about any negative side effects for men with regards to fertility. And I do hope fervently that there weren't any issues like that because the doctor didn't tell me and I'd like to have the option of getting babies :P

In the states it's called acutane. While it has side effects, I have never heard of it causing infertility or sterility in men.

 

Women that take it are required to be on birth control.

Isotretionine, which Wikipedia says is the same as acutane and reocutane. I'm fairly sure that it doesn't have effect on a man's fertility, like redmonke said.

I know food wouldn't make it go away :P but by avoiding the foods which can make acne worse, which evidently I had been eating a ton of lately, I might be able to prevent future outbreaks. Or so I'm hoping. But the eating healthy thing is also to help lose weight.

 

I'm starting to feel jealous of the many guys my age who don't have acne.. :( Idk why it's bothering me now tbh, it never bothered me before.

I stopped drinking milk or anything dairy except cheese, definitely helped me. I also wash my face daily with benzoyl peroxide 10% (though 8% is what I'd recommend).
