Oh and here's an outfit from last week because I know you don't want to hear me be all Canadian weather ranty, but unless your weather changes more than um ______ (insert something clever that changes. I actually thought about this but NOTHING came up.) than HAH. I win. Um, so where were we now? Ah, yes. Outfit from awhile back. It was one of those dress down days at school, so score for no uniform!
Dress down days are funny days. Because even though people don't have to wear a uniform, it appears that there's this underlying high school student uniform of leggings/ skinny jeans/ tees/ scarfs/ uggs/ slouchy boots/ simple flats etc, etc, that's been adopted by everyone. But the funny thing is, I don't mind it that much. It used to drive me insane, but it's kind of fun to look all SHBAM in a sea of conformity.
High school, and I guess life in general, is a funny place. There's so much conformity that it drives me insane. But it's so much easier to follow than to lead, is it not? And by "lead," I mean, go against the grain?
I don't know, I used to be all "blah blah blah I'm up on my high horse, you little high school people, because I know what I want and I have dreams and morals and heart and blah blah" (wow, I was an internally annoying grade niner (because we don't so freshman here (though I think it sounds better in this given sentence))) but I think that if you have time to learn from other people, everyone really IS very different. It's just harder for people to express they're differences. Because sometimes being different = being alone and GOD FORBID IN HIGH SCHOOL.
Anyways, not to imply that I'm a super weirdo or loner or anything, just some high school thoughts I've noticed. And, ultimately, I'm ecstatic to leave in a year or so...

How did you guys like / how are you guys enjoying high school?
(By the way, I realize I sound like some super antsy, drama queen teen but, um, I guess I can use the excuse of "mwaha but I'm onlyyyy in high school" *insert squeaky voice and whine and annoying text message to friend of omggggfml*)
Don't worry, I love my life, I really do. But sometimes it's just frustrating to want to do things, but you feel restrictions because of school, and like, other things, like, you know, yeahhh...
(I needed to add a happy face because MAN I feel like a whiny teenager and that is simply unfortunate. I'm naaawwwwwwwtttt, guyyyyyss.)
