I find that blogging is most fulfilling when I share personal stories or experiences. Stuff that people can relate to. I don't know if this is really relatable, but everyone has scars right?
People always have asked me: what happened to your ear? Well, here's the 411.
While we're looking at this picture, may I just mention how freaking tan I am?! Ugh...MN winters need to end...
Meet my right earlobe.
In 5th grade, I got my ears pierced for the first time. I was obsessed. And it didn't even hurt!
I don't know how much time passed, maybe a year or two. Anyway, one night, I was sleeping with my blanket. It got stuck on my earring without me knowing and pulled. It ripped the piercing down so there was only a teeny bit of space left until the bottom of my earlobe.
I then decided I wanted a second piercing in each ear. Loved it! So cute!
I finally decided to let my original piercing close so I could get it repierced further away from the bottom of my earlobe.
Well, in the process of my piercing closing. A little bit of scar tissue formed.
Not a problem, the next ear-piercing lady told me. They just moved my right piercing up a little higher.
Probably 3 or so years later, my piercing got caught again and ripped a teeny bit. I stopped putting earrings in at night. (Learn my lesson, much?) But then I would forget to put them in the next morning. When I tried to get an earring in my bottom hole, it was so hard to get in. I finally let my bottom piercings just close again.
More scar tissue formed. So now I have a big ball of scar tissue on my right earlobe. Also called a keloid.
I could technically get plastic surgery and have it removed, but whose to say it wouldn't form again during the healing from surgery? And become even worse.
I still can wear earrings because I have that second piercing in my ear. It's a little higher on my ear, but who cares. The only thing I miss is wearing hoops and drop earrings. Only studs for this girl.
And I always take my earrings out at night.
Have any cool scar stories?
