Why I Wear Sunscreen
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Texas has been having some beautiful weather lately. It has been hot, which is about normal for this time of year, but it has been beautiful. I am keeping my eyes and ears open for activities that my husband and I can participate in, both locally and not too far away. Since it is summer, many people, myself included, will be looking for indoor activities. If we are inside, we can stay cool while having fun. If I should happen to hear about some outdoor activities, I will be eager to participate in these, as well. I will want to participate in them because I like the outdoors and because I like to get involved. However, if I participate in outdoor activities, I will have to be sure to pack a bottle of sunscreen lotion in my purse. This time of year, I need sunscreen, because I am light-skinned. I burn easily. I want to avoid skin cancer. I also want to avoid sunburns, which first hurt and then itch and peel as they heal.

If I get a sunburn, I feel some discomfort. The burned area is usually warm and painful if touched. I treat sunburn in one of three ways. I will usually either (A) apply a cold wet washcloth to it, which cools the burned area and feels good; (B) apply baby powder to the burned area, which also feels good, or (C) leave it alone and try my best to go on with my normal activities, despite my discomfort. I can avoid this situation by wearing sunscreen.

Like many people, I love my life. I want to go and do what I love right now, rather than taking a few minutes to put on sunscreen. In most cases, however, the activities that I want to be a part of will still be there after I have applied my sunscreen. I also hate the oily shine that I get from sunscreen. As much as I hate oily shine, however, I would rather have shiny skin than skin cancer. Oily shine can be covered up with powder. I can then feel confident knowing that I am less shiny. By wearing sunscreen, I hope to avoid the wrinkles that can sometimes result from sun exposure. I also hope to live longer. By living longer, I can accomplish my goals.

One goal that I would like to achieve is to publish 1000 articles. 1000 articles would be a very satisfying accomplishment, and it would also help me to reach many more readers. In addition to achieving my publishing goal, I also have another goal: I want to get into public speaking.

I would like to be booked to speak at schools. My husband and I could then tour the country for my speaking gigs. While we toured, we would also have many experiences that we could use in our writing.

I intend to wear sunscreen so that my dreams may perhaps become a reality.

Nicely done, Hollie. If you're going to make it one thousand, I suggest that you start researching on Wiki, Google, whatever--the internet is full of information on anything from marine archaeology to the Hadron Collider in Bern, Switzerland. That way, you'll be informing yourself as well as your readers. I think reaching 1000 articles will disappoint you if it's only about the numbers--but what do I know? I like your writing, whatever the subject.
