Bodies... likes, dislikes, and oddities

I thought we needed a discussion like this and couldn't find one Post away about what you like (or love), dislike (or hate) or just find plain interesting about your body!

You need to be a member of NMG Members to add comments!


  • Oddity: I have insanely strong and flexible toes. I can pick things up off the floor with my toes. I can carry dog bowls made of metal with two toes. It's very strange. I also have double-jointed thumbs, so I can jut my knuckles out.
  • Likes: my hair, my eyes, my nose
    Dislikes: my legs, my acne
    Oddities: my freckles (in a good way), my ears
  • Likes: my hair, my face
    dislikes: my calfs, hands, teeth, nose, chin
    oddities: ears, eyes, my feet
  • likes: my lips, my hips (except when i try to cosplay young boys), my eyes
    dislikes: my eyebrows, my chin, and my lordosis
    Oddities: I can't push my fingers back! For someone whos been playing piano over half their life, my hands aren't that cooperative.
  • Likes: Hair (sometimes), lips, most of body, eyes, shoulders
    Dislikes: Nose, oval shaped head, feet (flat and painful), back (long torso, very curved in back so it hurts when I stand up for a while)
    Oddities: freckle on each cheek that are similar shape and size and in a similar loction
  • I absolutely love my hair, even though it feels like an afro at the end of a day (can anyone relate?) I really dislike how my body is overweight, even though I eat healthy and exercise often. I want all of it to disappear, but I can do nothing about it. The odd thing about me is that I have two freckles on my shoulder that look like they are on a line, exept only the endpoints are there, and the line itself is gone.
  • I like my eyes and my hair
    I dislike my eyebrows because they are brown but my hair is blond and therefore they stand out on my face too much and look bigger than they are and I think it makes me look ugly
  • I have really pretty eyes.
    My hair either looks fantastic and kickbutt or completely terrible.
  • Likes: well, I like my ears?
    Dislikes: I think I’m way to thin, and my hair looks like straw.
    Oddities: I can cross my toes.
  • Um, hm...
    Likes: My ears are kind of pointed? And I think that's sorta cute?
    Dislikes: My face I guess is the biggest issue I have.
    Oddities: My left eyebrow sort of goes up, unlike my right one. I like to think it's because I'm part Vulcan haha. (That's why I like the ear thing too lol.)

Staying Friends With Long Time Friends

I have this friend who's not on NMG who would probably like it if I called her Carolyn (that's not her real name). We met in kindergarten and call ourselves best friends, but we don't seem to have as many similar interests nowadays. I don't have many other friends, so she's really important to me. Do you know how we can stay good friends?-Jade     It's great that you have a friendship that's lasted that long. Even if you don't have many shared interests anymore you can still enjoy each other's…

Online Schoolwork Help

When I’m doing online schoolwork, it’s really easy to get off task. How can I keep myself from procrastinating?     —Anonymous  Hi! Procrastination and distraction are both things I’ve struggled with in the past, so speaking as someone who’s been homeschooled my whole life (not just since COVID!), and has *mostly* conquered these issues, I’ll do my best to help! First, prioritizing. There is only so much time in the day, so we need to figure out what are the most important things to do in that…

Staying Committed to a Story

I find it really hard to keep motivated while writing. I often am really excited about a story I start writing, but after a couple paragraphs I lose motivation and never continue the story. Any advice? -Anonymous I completely understand this! I am currently in the process of trying to stick to the longest story I’ve ever attempted. In the past, I’ve stuck to poetry and short stories for this very reason, but I’m trying to push myself with this project during quarantine! Here are a few tips…

Getting Through Quarantine Without Seeing Friends

How do I get through the corona quarantine without seeing my friends? -Sophia   Ah, the question of the season! I’m really glad you asked this, Sophia, because it’s a very important topic that so many of us are struggling with right now.  First, I would like to direct you to a blog post about staying connected in quarantine that one of my awesome fellow S2S mentors, Paige, wrote just a few days ago! She already did a great job on this topic, so this won’t be a super detailed answer, but you…
