WELL I know I haven’t posted in AGESSS!!! But I haven’t had much to say… but now I do, and again its about fitting in.
It seems in our culture nowadays we put a lot of emphasis on image. Whether it’s how we appear to the others or our family or how our actions will make us look, there is always some barrier that prevents us from going against the wave. It’s easy to get caught up in how we are perceived, especially at high school but I am not sure any of it really matters. It doesn’t make anyone really that happy.
As a girl I know first hand how important image is. I regularly allow myself to get torn up about such minor things such as how boys perceive me or whether I’m sending out the right signals or not, etc. But seriously trying to be some girl who exposes a lot of flesh and acts a certain way is not what I am on the inside. Forcing myself into a tiny miniskirt is not how I want to spend 20 minutes of my life nor do I want to continually have to keep pulling it down for the rest of the night. I do not see why I should have to try and fit the new modern image of attractive when it is clearly unreachable and in some cases unhealthy- and to be honest, uncomfortable.
And even from a non-gender-specific thing, I have also found that knowing what you want to do in your last year of high school is expected but not really appreciated. I mean, those who strive to meet their goal are frowned upon by their peers and even in some cases their teachers and friends. This seems crazy as all they ever force-feed you in high school I’ve found is getting a job or further education. Yet a lot of my peers seem so focused on having a good time and enjoying themselves rather than trying to better themselves.
It seems many would rather look cool than do well.
Anyways chat to you guys another time :L thanks for reading. (sorry if it sounded like a bit of a rant)
Big eyelashes :) xx
