There is nothing a pretend-cool poser Catholic school student likes to complain about more than wearing a uniform. They canít be individuals; they canít express themselves; additional trite teenage argument. They hate dressing like everyone else. Yet inevitably when a dress down day rolls around the other uniforms come out. The emo uniform: skinny jeans, trendy rock band vintage T, and side sweeping bangs. The skater uniform: baggy jeans, generic skate company logo T-shirt, and DC shoes. The sporty prep uniform: plaid shorts, polo shirt, and unremarkable Vans. Apparently there is a lot of uniformity involved in being an individual.
