Surprise! It only hurt for a second. When I was about eight years old, my mom asked if I'd like my ears pierced and I answered her, "No." It wasn't something I ever wanted...until a few weeks ago. I thought, "I'd like to have my ears pierced." Just for me. It's not to impress anyone. It's a way for me to feel pretty or cool or to "express" myself. I will only have to wait eight weeks to change them. All in all, I think it was a good decision. If I ever change my mind, they'll close up. Right?
