I hated my style. I smudged the graphite figures into oblivion, trying to learn how to create European swooshy lines. "SWOOSH" I said aloud. "SCRUNCH" my pencil would go, sometimes tearing actual holes through the page. "Where'd you learn how to hold a pencil?" a classmate once asked me, genuinely curious. My hand makes an almost perfect fist around all writing utensils, clutching them as though they might save my life.
I think my life is a constant effort to fight my style, seeing things I could be, perhaps, if only. Effortlessly cool girls. They make it looks so easy.
Every once in a while, though, I succumb to what comes naturally. That's when you get an outfit like this, sloppy and a bit bohemian perhaps, oddball and messy.
