I'm gonna need more hangers.
category: Uncategorized

My outfit today was so boring, I felt a piece of my once 16 year old soul die. It wasn’t because I didn’t have time; I woke up right at 8 am and had a good 40 minutes to prepare. To my frustration, I failed to come up with anything not safe, which is the opposite of what I would have done in HS. The combinations I chose back then were daring and at times not that flattering, but they were fun and inspired by my curiosity with clothing composition.

Everyday is a battle to maintain the creative impulses lost to my academic life, however today was yet another sound defeat. Perhaps others would argue that it is just clothing and it’s no big deal, but not me. To me, it is my sanity and my controlled constant; it is my way of living a worthwhile existence that is in jeopardy of succumbing to the pressures of my university’s general style malaise. I am becoming less of a person than I once was; I am becoming the books I pour over, mechanized by the schedule that controls me. If I can not escape from the actions, I will do so wearing myself on my sleeves. I have to fight for my right to self expression everyday. And everyday counts.
