Fashion Show or Tuition Class?

Sometimes you just want to relieve your eyes from the superficialities of the world, but I guess the life revolving around people, especially teenagers, is about "shallowness" and "coolness". (~*Intelligent*~ Librainy hates to admit, but) including me too, okay? I still look into the mirror every day, check out my (short & stout) figure before I go out to make sure I look alright. It's normal!


But it's a different case altogether if you live to dress, not dress to live (i mean, you can live even if you go running around naked, but I would seriously die of humiliation.) To all tuition-goers out there (which are basically everyone 13-17 yrs old) don't you think tuition centre is like a fashion battlefield? It’s actually oKAY to dress up, but you’re not supposed to be prepped up as come-to-life anime characters and take it too seriously. Although I’m Form 5 this year (I find it hard to believe too), the Form 3 & 4 students have picked up the trend too and sometimes I, too feel I do not dress up to my age. (Probably that’s why people still ask me what standard am I in now)

Someone told me that being normal is doing what other people normally do and being abnormal is, like, running around naked ( I do NOT know why I like to use this as example.) If everyone starts covering up sensitive parts using leaves like the olden days, then that would be considered normal. Wearing clothes would seem abnormal instead. So just be yourself, wear what you like and be happy with it. Who cares what other people think? Anyway we dress up just to keep ourselves warm… (But I would not suggest taking anything off in public even in this tropical country) This may well be the longest post I’ll write in a century so you’d better drink up every word of it because it may well be the most intelligent writing you’ll ever read in your entire life.

Hehehe… Sorry to say that my ego has inflated a little (thank God, temporarily) so bear with me, ya?

Wat??!! It's abnormal to be naked?? I've been wearing my birthday suit to class since the ice age n yet no one thinks it's abnormal

so the question begs, do you want to enjoy the acceptance that comes with being normal or the potential for more individuality and perhaps integrity that comes with being "abnormal"?

ermm... that's a tough one, anonymous... I would REALLY want to be "abnormal", but my height really forbids me from wearing clothes other than kiddy ones because I can't fit into the adult sizes! Guess I'll have to bid that integrity goodbye...
