Most Likely to Maintain Her Poker Face
Find a mask you like and wear it like armor. It's nice because it protects you. At first, it feels strange but after a while it starts to represent you. And then you're committed so you don't take it off, because people have gotten used to it. And now you feel like you can't take it off because how will people recognize you if you do? You found this new face, you wrapped yourself up in someone else's smile. You used it as your own and now it's become your own. I hope you chose wisely. I mean, you probably have a proper public facing assortment now considering your status as a functioning adult. It is the way. But let's hope your capsule of masks suits you well. You can only protect yourself for so long, even with your party face on. Of course, you'll feel most at home in the one you wear before bed, but even that one, albeit oily and asymmetrical, doesn't quite depict the real you. It's only a part of the story.
