I'm not saying that it is specific and I can't speak for anyone else but what I have experienced... as a pale white girl in her early 20's that is nicknamed "Home Hermit" by her parents and a "recluse" by her sisters. Anyway, these are a compiled list of 15 thought I had before and after I tried to tan and ended up looking like a burnt chicken nugget!

1.  "Maybe I'll get a tan today!"
