Well, I went to school today to get my schdule straightened out, the freshman had their first day today. WELL.......I saw some of my upperclassmen friends (they were helping out w/ the freshman, doing some buddy thing) I talked to them for a while and what not, then we went outside where they were serving lunch......WOW!!! Can we say disturbed children????
This one guy had all his hair shaved off, except for these two spikes in the front, this other kid had bleach blond hair w/ blue stripes in it, some others had like 1 foot spikes standing on their heads (ok maybe exadgerating a little) HOLY COW!!! I seriously dred going back!
I mean MAN!! One of those guys could poke my eyes out or something, OUCH!!! HELP!!!! DON'T MAKE ME GO BACK!!! PLEASE!!!
Young lady, I think you are simply using them as a convenient excuse for not getting your butt back to school!!
We're on to you!! You can't play these tricks on mothers, because we have seen it all!!
So, what trick are you going to try next? Heating up a thermometer on the light bulb and telling your mom (or your honey) that you have a fever?
Anyway, in all seriousness, those are just regular folks. They are simply expressing themselves. You will probably find out that they are the talented, sensitive, artistic types.
They are the free thinkers who dress to please THEMSELVES, not to conform to someone ELSE'S idea of how they should dress. I applaud them, maybe because I was one OF them, and I tend to gravitate toward people like them. They are non-judgemental, and free-spirited adventurers.
I absolutely agree with HappyWendee when she says that the "conformists" are often the snobby, catty types, who socialize only in cliques made up of clones of themselves.
Sid Vicious and the Sex Pistols made that particular look popular back in the late '70s. It's just enjoying a brief comeback, and will again and again, as all fads do. Those boys will have to have conservative haircuts soon enough, in the conservative working world. Let them enjoy their youth!!
To quote John Mellencamp:
"Hold on to 16
As long as you can
Changes come around real soon
To make us women and men"
The same can be said about your college years. Have fun, and enjoy them to your fullest!! Especially now that you are a senior, and will have to conform to the hospital employee dress code only too soon...
