So my driving instructor texted me, and I was walking so I just typed ‘Ok’ and hit send and then I looked at it and was like WHAT
But as it turns out, my friends are entirely responsible for turning ‘Ok’ into a shortcut.
but what did your driving instructor say
WHAT DID HE SAY
THIS IS NOT A FUN CLIFFHANGER
|Me to boy:||Wow, we got lucky! The last two, just for us!|
|Little Boy:||I know! *Then he starts staring in awe at the Avengers*|
|Boy's Mom:||Are you buying those for your little brother?"|
|Me:||No, it's for me, for college.|
|Mom *looking at me weird*:||But these bedsheets are for little boys. It's really not appropriate for a young woman, especially a college student.|
|Me:||Wait, so it's "appropriate" for little boys to sleep on top of hot grown men in spandex, but it's weird when a college girl does it?|
|Me:||Have a nice day, ma'am. And rock those Avengers bedsheets, little man!|
I took this last year, but in retrospect, I think it’s my strongest piece from high school.
Working on this project really made me examine my own opinions, preconceptions and prejudices about “slutty” women and women who choose to cover all of their skin alike. I used to assume that all women who wore Hijabs were being oppressed, slut-shame, and look down on and judge any woman who didn’t express her sexuality in a way that I found appropriate.
I’d like to think I’m more open now.
