It's interesting to catch a glimpse into the mind of somebody who is totally opposite me. I think I'm just generally a very private person, but I've never done the whole expressing who I am on the inside in a physical way thing. I like controlling what people see of me, not in a deceptive way or out of shame but I like choosing when to share myself with others. I'm sure that's not 100% healthy but what really is.

EH. I think it's a perfectly reasonable way to want to live your life. There's so little that we're able to control that I think it's perfectly reasonable to want to be deliberate about yourself/your image.
