At this school, known for it's "trackies and thongs" trend, and generally trackies wear all year round, I think there are two kinds of casual clothes categories (and associated attitudes); casual (I couldn't care less) and fashionable (I'm making an effort). Casual is the girl wearing trackies tucked into her flats. Fashionable is the girl who was wearing navy skinny jeans, a cute, black 3/4 length sleeve jacket cape and white shirt this morning, and the same jeans, electric blue sweater and bright red patent shoes (with a tiny heel) this afternoon. She could pull it off (and look like she wasn't really trying.) And then there's the boys, a category unto themselves. Skinny leg jeans on girls generally look great (especially with a loose sweater or hoody) - but on most guys, they just make me laugh. They just seem so...flamboyant? pretentious? wannabe? posing? I mean, skinny leg jeans weren't designed for guys! (I totally agree with this guy's t-shirt!) I mean, what self-respecting guy wears skinny jeans, for goodness sake? They're just not masculine! (OK, so it's probably not the jeans I have a problem with so much as they guys wearing them; but in general, guys should avoid them.)

And in other school related affairs, I have finished and handed in my TOK Essay! Thank goodness - it's such a huge relief. I'm not stressing over it like I was the EE. But like the EE, it's this huge anti-climax; we've done a year and a half of classes to write a 1200-1600 word essay and a 10 minute oral, and when they're finished, it's over (hello,
