Aug 11th 2008 10:52PM stupid. as if we don't see enough ads everywhere else. it's creative, but unnecessary.
Oct 31st 2007 9:06PM well, since it seems like most people here are supporting uniforms, I shall have to represent the opposition. 1- cost probably isn't much lower, seeing as kids still need clothes for outside of school. obviously they won't just wear a uniform 24-7. 2- no, clothes aren't the only way to show individuality, but they sure are a big part of it if you want it to be! I can just imagine that: "Hey, look how unique I am! My pants are slightly flared, and I'm wearing *gasp* striped socks instead of plain!" wow. no matter how much authority tries to flatten it out of us, kids will want to be unique. 3- sure, there is some hazing that occurs because of clothes. however, this is normal. kids get teased for everything, not just clothes. as they grow up and start to develop their own style, this isn't really an issue. we can't be protected and sheltered against everything, it's just not realistic.
As for these students' form of protest; why not? if they owned the jackets, it's not like they were destroying something that wasn't theirs. I personally find it impressive that they would organize and follow through with something like this. authority just doesn't want any rebellion; it'd be too troublesome.
I probably could continue, but I have a paper to write, and a crazy fun outfit to plan to wear to school tomorrow. I hope no one makes fun of me.
Oct 22nd 2007 9:03PM wowww... there are some harsh comments going on! i guess facial hair is fine- if and only if it suits the guy. typically, cavemen beards are gross no matter what. however, there is no reason guys can't sport a goatee or trimmed beard. sometimes it can add a classy touch~ (ps. im 17. not that that should have anything to do with it, i'm just trying to add a different perspective on things)
Oct 1st 2007 7:08PM HAHHAHhah ... "juking"? ummm... yeah, it's called grinding now. I find it fairly unattractive and usually a bit degrading. therefore, i do not partake in it. (I'm a high school senior by the way)
and it's not just high school... i definitely remember people doing it when i was in like, 6th grade. i guess it's at least better than them actually having sex on the dancefloor. (though that's probably happened too...)
Aug 5th 2007 7:30PM well, i'll prove the writer wrong and say i am in the middle on this one... although it's kinda futurishly cool-looking, it's also kinda like the kind of bags all the really girly girls in my grade would carry around and try to tell everyone how unique they are for buying it.
anyway, i'll also be in the middle on the spending money issue. i think it's absolutely ridiculous to spend this amount of money on a bag. ridiculous. (i have about 10 bags and have only bought one. it's much more fun knitting or sewing your own; at least then it is actually unique and fun.) i'm not saying all your spare money should go to charity. i have a chronic illness. it costs a lot of money to stay healthy. but i still like getting something nice once in a while. on the other hand, a bunch of people who will say it's okay to splurge if you earn the money are the kind of people who won't just splurge on this one purse- they'll buy expensive high-heels the next day, an insanely expensive sportscar after that, they'll shop at the stores in the mall that charge nearly $100 for a shirt that isn't even all that special.
that's all i'm trying to say. keep in mind that there are other people who could benefit greatly from some help, and try to find a balance between indulging yourself and going way overboard for something you really don't need. like this bag.
Jun 8th 2007 11:34AM nessie is definitely real.
last week, Japanese scientist explaced... placed explosives at the bottom of Lake Loch Ness, to blow Nessie out of the water.
sorry, hadta say that. anyway, the reason they haven't embarked on a definitive quest to prove its nonexistence is because what would they do if they actually found a huge monster dinosaur thing in the lake? really? they wouldn't just say, 'ohh, let's leave it here to live peacefully!' : P
May 1st 2007 5:12PM SICK. these jeans are gross. i'm a teen, and the low-cut jeans i wear already bulge enough as it is when i sit... i can't imagine these... we'd all look like men... *cough* anyway, if you wanna look slim, find a nice fitted tee that looks slender. don't wear jeans that come up to your neck. it's just plain ridiculous.
