Earlobes and Eyebrows

I consider myself to be one of the luckiest females alive for many reasons, one of them being my wonderful, wonderful eyebrows.

I am unlike most girls, to begin with. Like I've said before, I just can't wear makeup and I have my own style. I know I am definitely not the prettiest girl on the planet, but I'm not fussed. Sure, my nose does not do me any favors, but other than that I could really care less about my facial appearance. But I have great eyebrows. I have never had to get them waxed or plucked, because they are just the closest thing to perfect. People say I have really good eyebrows for never having them done, but they always ask me why don't I just get them done anyways so I could get them just pefect. They're good enough. Why would I want to put myself through needless pain? I mean, if my eyebrows were to resemble a hairy worm, then yeah, I might want to consider getting some help with that, but I can assure you that's not my case. =)

I see a whole bunch of people who, like me, don't need to get their eyebrows waxed, and they do it anyways so they can have them perfect too. My question is: why? It makes no sense to me. My friends are always trying to convince me to get them done even though I don't need to. What's so great about the sensation of having something ripped off you skin? I guess I can understand if girls do it to help their self-image, but I feel no desire to get my eyebrows done unless I needed it. I guess I missed that crucial step required to becoming a woman.

And here's another thing: my friends are shocked when they notice that I don't have my ears pierced. Earrings are fun, I bet. It's part of that customizing thing and I can see why it's cool. But I never really cared much about it. The way I see it, people who stare at your earlobes first and foremost should get their heads checked. I mean this as a serious question: do people REALLY notice things like that? Do earlobes have ability to make heads turn? That's always been my perspective on earrings.

I guess here's the heart of the matter. Considering things from today's standards, not your own, be honest in answering this question: Am I weird? Am I not girlish enough? I'm being serious. Would the typical fifteen-year-old girl think I was from another planet just because I feel no desire to get my eyebrows done or my ears pierced, or to wear pounds of makeup on my face or wear the latest styles in Seventeen Magazine? Is it bad that I've read one issue of Seventeen Magazine only because my friend had it out and I was curious about what they had to say, later thinking it was completely out of my tastes?

Bear in mind, I am NOT trying to make a statement. I'm genuinely curious. Like I said before in my "Makeup" Blog, people have their own reasons for choosing how they like to present themselves. But it's such a trend now. I only know one girl who is like me, we might as well be twins because we are so alike in this regard and many others. And I am comfortable with who I am. But I've always wondered if this makes me less of a girl. And I know the obvious response to this would be, "Of course not!" But see things from the general perspective. I'm afraid to ask my friends, because I worked really hard this year to make new friends after middle school, and I don't want them to think less of me. Pathetic, I know, but you could really only understand that if... Hmm, I'm making a Blog about teasing. There's your answer.

Enough with dragging the matter out. I'm curious to see what everyone thinks. Guys are allowed too xD. If they haven't already ran away...
