u need to justify what makes you happy to someone in your life, perhaps you should ask yourself why you even care about their opinion in the first place.

“Judgments”

I took this last year, but in retrospect, I think it’s my strongest piece from high school.

Working on this project really made me examine my own opinions, preconceptions and prejudices about “slutty” women and women who choose to cover all of their skin alike. I used to assume that all women who wore Hijabs were being oppressed, slut-shame, and look down on and judge any woman who didn’t express her sexuality in a way that found appropriate.

I’d like to think I’m more open now.

If I see anyone dressed as a bellydancer or “terrorist” this year, I’ll peg them with disgusting candy corn.

Twelve Steps To Sucking Less

Face it: people suck.
I suck. You suck. We all suck…but not in the way you’re thinking.
The first time you try anything, there’s a high probability that you’re going to suck. If you think that’s a good excuse for quitting, you might as well stop reading, shut your computer down and go home right now. Because it’s not.
Everybody sucks. You will suck. At some point. At some thing. You will suck. That’s non-negotiable. That’s how you start. From there, the goal isn’t to make you not suck at all (that’s almost impossible). The goal is to make you suck less. Luckily, I’ve compiled a simple 12 step guide to help you do just that. Enjoy.
12 Steps To Sucking Less
Try something (most people never even make it this far)
Realize you suck
Decide you want to get better
Try again, realize you still suck
Practice, suck a little less.
Practice some more, suck a little less.
Contemplate quitting. Don’t.
Become tenacious. Try again. Suck a little less.
Practice some more and watch everyone else go home
Keep f***ing practicing. Suck a little less.
Outlast everyone…become mediocre
Repeat as necessary.

The secret to getting good at something isn’t being superhuman. All you have to do is be determined to suck less than most people. Eventually everyone else gives up, and you’ll be mediocre, sucking a little less…every…single…day.
