I tired my best, but it wasn’t enough. Hard work and dedication didn’t pay off this time. Until next time.
Acting the part is easy, but looking the part is rough. More in the area of my back pocket where my wallet full of cash is suppose to be. When people look at me they probably think I wear over sized clothes and I look like a little kid in his fathers clothes. This past break I spent a good heap of money just to get some clothes that would “fit”. Why am do I convert to societies standard on “what looks good or not”? I was brought up to buy clothes that wouldn’t hurt the family’s income and appreciate what you have. As long as you were clothed you were fine.
Now back to my question on “Why am I converting to societies standards?” Its because
1. I need people to take me more seriously. Sometimes I say things and people think I’m joking with them. I’m sorry, but when I say it in a harsh tone, I mean it.
2. Once I enter the real world I have to look the part. No more over-sized tees, hoodies, jackets. None of that would do within today’s society. Its either you get clothes that fit your body or you stay home and look like a bum.
3. Jobs. Within the school of business everyone is starting to develop the “preppy” look. Everyone has to look good on any given day because any given day you might run into an opportunity that can make or break you. People hiring want to see the first impression. If you look like a child in his fathers clothing you’ll be laughed at and turned around and sent right out the door you walked into.
There is no winning against society standards. If you don’t meet the requirements, you are an outcast.
