What I’m reading: The troubles of a resting bitch face

Screen Shot 2016-09-02 at 7.37.12 AMThe resting bitch face is a problem many have to suffer through. The countless amount of times others ask you if everything is okay and you have to ask back really puzzled on why they think everything wouldn’t when you remember you suffer from rbf!

It makes everyday things challenging. Photo day at school is never fun! While hanging out with others, you may feel the constant pressure to smile and express you are having a good time, in fear that they will feel you hate their guts!

When it comes to movie times, you can look like an unemotional person. You can pass off as being the only person in the theatre that was not emotionally moved by the movie. Plus side of that is you don’t have to worry about running mascara or embarrassing snorting in a laughing fit!

On the plus side, you can dominate any game night with the perfect poker face! Go all in and scare the opponents without cracking a smile.Screen Shot 2016-09-02 at 7.37.09 AM
