Whenever i meet people for the 1st time, especially females, They comment on my skin shade.
They say " you are quite dark o"
I find it amusing. Ive never been Light skinned, so i dont understand their shock.
Maybe i seem/ speak/come across like a light person.
The same way people cant believe im tall.
Or cant believe im not a size 16- With the way i go on and on about my weight.
My point is this, Nothing is wrong with being dark.
especially if you have really bad skin like yours truly.
But Whenever i see some dark sinned people bleach themselves
There was this girl in my Uni MRS, in year 1 she was probably as dark as me.
Now she is probably as light as Nadia Buari.
I saw her naked the other day and was disgusted.
Green and red veins criss crossed, back of her knees
Black stretch marks
She looked a mess and a half.
Is bleaching worth it?
Do girls really feel not beautiful because they are dark skinned?
Would i feel more beautiful If i was light skinned?
No. I would feel extremely beautiful if i had clear skin.
So yesterday at the party i Deejay'd for, i was a bit late due to other stuff.

* Because my mother is from warri, we always speak pidgin whenever her siblings are around.
