So today I went down the street on a lonely adventure, and booked an appointment on thursday afternoon to get my lip pierced. I figured i'd be in the mood, after finishing drama HSC, for something wild.
Then I strolled up to a hairdressers and said "Im looking at doing something radical colour-wise."
So yeah, we thought perhaps many chunks of black and Ice Blonde, as well as natural colour and possibly a purple chunk?
But it got me thinking... Now I'll probably get classed "Emo" or "Scary"
and I'm scared work wont like it.
Thats what frustrates me. Thats who I am.
Why should I have to respect people's opinions on what is "appropriate".
I am who I am.
Can't wait for the day when piercings and tattoos etc are accepted.
Or maybe... that's why we like them, because they aren't socially accepted entirely.
I think that plays a small role.
I should just say its part of my culture or religion :D
I'm almost positive my mum thought i was joking about the piercing,
she's gonna be pleasantly surprised come thursday night.
