I gave up taking pictures after school because it just didn't work out so I took pictures at eleven pm last night. And this actually did work out. Conclusion: you don't need the sun if you've got a flash. I don't really like modelling, I prefer working behind the scenes and control the shoots over being in the pictures myself. [Control freak]
In the picture I wear my dress I wore last sunday at my 16th birthday. The whole: a white dress, a crown, dark purple lipstick, low socks and party heels.
|I ordered this old polaroid land camera on the internet, it was only €35.|
|Here's a better picture of my heels. I wore the same party heels last christmas when I took this picture.|
School. I start to hate school. It's not that I am psychical lazy- I am, in fact, very studious. School just doesn't give me opportunities to deploy. I'm in our school's student council and I plead for higher education quality but no grownup seems to care. That's what makes our puberty so difficult: adults expect us to act like adults but they treat us like children. I am quite sure there are a lot of teenagers here who are as smart as, or even smarter than, some adults. When I say this in a common area, many people react like: 'adults have more life experience' and I think that is an argument based on nothing because there are many teenagers who have experienced more than some adults. Compare an adult who has never been further than his hometown to a student who has travelled a lot and who has moved to fifteen different cities or something like that: is it fair to say that the adult has more life experience and, because of that, knows more? I don't think so. It's about deploying on many different disciplines. Like Leonardo Da Vinci, who was architect, inventor, philosopher, scientist, chemist, anatomist, sculptor, writer, painter and composer (this is an extreme example because he was seen as the homo universalis and maybe he wasn't that great as they say and is it just an ideal). Imagine there was a Leonardo Da Vinci 12 years old version who has already finished University (and those genius children excist!) and some adult idiot - does that make the adult's opinion more worth than the child's? This is a wildly exaggerated example, but this is my point: age is just a number (and I am not saying this because I am having a 30 years old 'boyfriend' or something which is disgusting in my opinon). I think high school autority should listen more often to their students because their students know exactly what they need and of course there are some of them who are only negative and don't want to go to school, but there are some students who do want to have excellent education.
It is just very hard for adults to understand how we feel and how we think because of the generation gap. And that's why they need us. (and I am afraid I won't be able to understand my kids when I am older.)
If I would have time before I die this would be on my 'before I die' list: starting my own school. A school with small classes so it's more personal, and more disciplines like psychology, why don't they teach psychology in school? I am sick of Dutch regular education, oh my god. I'm sixteen and I'm stuck in school.
So that was my daily philosophize. Fun fact: I didn't chose philosophy in my curriculum because I was afraid I would gone crazy by all those philosophic thoughts. And I didn't think I'd really need it. I mean, my dad has studied philosophy. We've got Plato's works at home and stuff.
