Dress codes. Everyone has them, I know I've had one my entire school career. At my school, which I love do not get me wrong, we have a very strict dress code. No short skirts/dresses, no tank tops, no short shorts, ect ect. And that's fine. I'm used to dressing a certain way at school, but it gets hard going back from summer of short dresses to school of jeans (because most dresses just aren't worth trying haha!) And although I stopped fighting the dress code in ninth grade, I'm getting a little tired of it if you want me to be honest.
Tonight I've been thinking a lot about the next step in my life and how I want to go about it. I originally planned to work at Disneyland when I move to the area... but I'm not as sure tonight. I think it'd be a wonderful place to work, however I have had to live under a strict dress code all of my life and am ready to be able to express myself better. I do not expect to be dress code less, however Disneyland is strict... I'm anticipating that my gauges will have to go and I won't be able to get my septum pierced, which is something I've wanted for so long. I just don't know if I want that. College is my time to grow and find who I am... I'm not sure if I want another dress code, one that I will be choosing to be apart of. I'm just unsure at this point. I know I have a lot of time to figure it out, but I want to be really happy next year and I don't know if sacrificing things I've never really been able enjoy is apart of that. (I keep my gauged hidden at school as not to make a fuss of them. I have nude/flesh colored ones on the way)
How do you feel about dress codes? Are they a good idea or do you think they're a complete bummer?
