(Sometimes I like to dress in this business-style attire,
and pretend I have an important meeting to attend.
I got these kick ass heels on sale at Target,
and the skirt on a 50% off sale online at Forever21.)
...And if you didn't know...
James Dean is just awesome.
As a teenager, I loved watching him in the only 3 movies he ever made:
Rebel Without A Cause, East of Eden and Giant.
There was just something different about "Old Hollywood" back in the day...
As a kid growing up, I was by no means a rebel.
I pretty much followed the rules, but at the same time,
I had a mind of my own.
I wasn't really influenced by other kids to do stupid things.
At a young age, where kids WANT to "fit in" and be like everyone else,
I didn't want to be like everyone else.
I wanted to be "ME".
Even as a kid, I wanted to wear a different style of clothing everyday.
I liked to express myself.
If I thought something was wrong, I would say something.
I fought for my beliefs.
I didn't let anyone mess around with me.
Back in the day, (especially in high school), I was mistaken for being
cold, "tough" and just plain mean, because of my "outspokenness."
I was not popular with the guys, but I think it was because
most of them were intimidated by me.
Looking back now, I just laugh.
High school was such an awkward, confusing time.
I will leave you with a clip from James Dean's "Rebel Without a Cause"
