A day outside

Today, I went outside. I was out for more than five minutes, which is unusual. In fact, I was outside, in the sun, without shade or sunscreen, for over four hours. I usually never do this, because when I do, my pale, pasty skin invariably turns to a bright shade of red. It burns. It burns so bad. No words can explain how bad this will hurt tomorrow. As to why I didn’t put on sunscreen, well, I just absolutely hate the feel of sunscreen on my skin. It’s so slimy and greasy and it just makes me feel very uncomfortable. I had fun, though, which is the good part. I haven’t had as much fun as I did today in a couple months. I really don’t get out too much…
