Education is important. Some educational systems are better than others, obviously, but I don’t see myself ever sending my kids to some private school that I pay for every year to make them put on tacky uniforms. I think I got a pretty good education, but I probably could have done better and gone farther if someone believed in me and put me in better classes.
This one kind of runs along the same as makeup in some instances. For me, I like to look good & sometimes I feel like I have to look good physically but I know there’s people who will still love any way I look, so sometimes I ‘scrub’ it out or don’t put makeup on for the day. The other forms of appearance, like, how you present yourself is a different story. You should always appear to be your best, in the sense that you are acting right towards others. Appearing to look ugly and de-shelved today because you ran through the city in the rain to make sure your boyfriend got to work on time and you caught a train home is alright in my book. Appearing to be a rude and uncaring person as you rush your way through a train station, running over peoples’ feet with your bag and yelling at the ones who get in your way… yeah, you’ve failed at how you appear.
