Dear Journal,

The thought came across my mind today…Why are students SO innovative? I think it’s because we have the least amount of resources to work with! We acquire things in pieces and fragments, rarely in bulk (unless you’re talking about Ramen noodles). Our favorite game….MIX N’ MATCH!! Old with new, somebody else’s with our own, Goodwill with Name Brand Store bought….whatever it takes to create that fresh look. Every student has MADE something work…that was either broken, too long, too short, too big, too small, faded, or even just plain beat up. In fact, I feel like alot of the major trends ARE STARTED BY STUDENTS! (i.e. slim ties, ties as belts, vintage clothes, slogan/novelty t-shirts, flats/keds/chinese shoes, huge belts, gloves with the fingers cut off, skinny jeans….need i say more?). There’s something about being a student that says….I KNOW I’M BROKE, BUT I’M INDEPENDENT — Let ME decide what style is.

-UTO
