10 Things I 'Learned' From My Dress Code

A sarcastic list of the do's and don'ts of high school dress codes.

10 Things I 'Learned' From My Dress Code

Going to a private school for most of my whole life taught me so much about how to dress appropriately. I learned so many lessons from my frequent trips to the office for my dress code violations on how to dress so the young men around me don't "stumble."

I thought I'd share with you the 10 things I've learned from my high school dress code.

1. Shoulders are the most sexual part of a women's body.

So cover them up so those boys don't stumble.

2. Showing your bra straps suggests that you are ACTUALLY wearing a bra...who knew?

So cover up those vile sexual pieces of fabric, ladies!

3. The fingertip shorts rule is always correct and never objective.

4. We don't need to teach boys self-control.

We just need to teach girls how to dress and not distract the boys. It's socially acceptable to let guys judge women and what they wear.

5. Yoga pants and leggings are unacceptable.

They are not to be classified as pants because they cause boys to "stumble."

6. Teachers are exempt from the dress code.

They are TOTALLY allowed to wear a short skirt and call you out on yours. The rules do not apply.

7. Tattoos and piercings are tacky and you will never get a job if you have them.

Ignore the fact that your graphic design teacher has a sleeve.

8. My dress code taught me great creativity.

I can proudly say that I am an expert on finding loopholes.

9. Making girls change into distinct "scarlet letter" clothing who violate the dress code is perfectly acceptable.

It is not at all demeaning or embarrassing to a young girl's self-esteem.

10. Forcing dress code violators to miss class to go to the office and/or go home is completely acceptable.

They are a distraction and are in no way themselves trying to get an education.

In all, to avoid any dress code violations, you might as well just wear a paper bag to school next time you have the chance...like us in the picture below. In the end, you're going to school to learn not to distract.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
