What is "Beauty"?

I guess it's not too weird for the concept of beauty to be on anyone's mind but it's been on mine a lot over the past couple of days. Is beauty a character trait? Is it a way that you look? Is it something you can become? Is it just innate?
Is it something we should focus on?
Correct me if I'm wrong but being beautiful is something that a lot of people (at least a lot of American girls) strive for. And, as much as I want to be seen as beautiful, I want to be able to stop focusing so hard on it. I want it to not really be a factor in my day to day ongoings.
But it is. And I don't know how to fix it.

Hey Again

It's been a while, wow.
Sorry about that, I had to send my computer away for repairs and I finally have it back :)

I have finished my freshman year of college, which is crazy but true. What else, what else? My boyfriend came to visit and it was really fun to show him around the Northwest. This will be my first year celebrating my birthday and the fourth of July in the states in a long while. Then, after that, I get to go spend the summer with my parents in Germany :) I'm excited to get out of the country again, I've missed Europe a lot while I've been at college.
I'm hoping this will be an adventurous summer, a summer of growing up and learning. Let's see how that goes :)
