current mood: bored
current song: change - the other side

so i went to dantes last night, had a blast. :o) i'm gonna try and go next monday wOOt!

hm, but while i was there i some how managed to ash on my hand and burn myself. the funny thing is i didn't notice the HUGE blister until about 2pm today. the blister is right inbetween my middle and ring finger on my right hand, and i always wear a ring on that ring finger, well i was wondering all day why my ring kept on hurting my finger, and finally when i was leaving campus i noticed the blister.

damn i can be oblivious.

question is, should i pop it? or just let it be?

leigh thanks for that song!

People have different ideas about how to treat a blister. That liquid in there is helping to heal your skin...so it's kind of good shit to have. If you pop it, not only will you lose that, you'll also open yourself up to the possibility of infection. People say not to pop your blisters, and then when they do pop peel away the dead skin and clean out the wound. I agree with that except for when the full unpopped blister is creating more pain. If you're constantly pressing on the blister and forcing the liquid to seperate a layer of skin...then pop it. The damage you're doing is greater than the damage you'll do by opening yourself up for infection. Probably not a big deal if the thing's on your hand.....if it's on your feet though and you're walking on it all day long.....it's a different story.

Whatever you do, be sure to show as many people your nasty hand as possible :-)
