Tomorrow I’m going to check out some dorms in Antwerp. Wait… where did the time go? It feels like yesterday that started in secondary school, now I already picked what to study in college, which college I’ll attend, I’m visiting dorms, I’m thinking about what to wear to my graduation, etc.
i apologise, but how does having piercings and coloured hair effect someone’s education? no one, to my knowledge, has ever been so distracted in class down to the colour of someone’s hair or metal in someone’s skin. schools tell us to be our own person, but how can we possibly be that if you restrict our own bodily choices. the education system is fucked.
