Let's take a little trip down memory lane... When I was in high school I used to think it was really funny to mock people, especially since I was at a really big and diverse public school, plus I was a huge snob. But yeah, I always had something to say about everyone and, quite frankly, I was super funny, haha, although that's beside the point right now...

Luckily, I outgrew that stage and learned to respect people a bit more (with the occasional mocking moment every now and then) and I'm glad I did because that allowed me to learn a bit from every single person I meet... This takes us to the special story from the past: back in high school I remember making fun of this girl who had a huge septum ring, I thought it was atroucious and yet here we are, six years later, with me wearing a fake one.

And, of course, I look much better than she did back in the day and yes, I nicknamed her "bull-girl" but the main lesson here is that those are only things we said; we change, we grow up and evolve and fashion is here to be fun and to help us express ourselves without having to speak a lot; so, as long as you're consistent and true to yourself, it's okay to go ahead and try new things: have a good time with clothes and accessories, I mean, we have to wear something anyways, right?

// Tomemos un momento para abrir el baúl de los recuerdos... Cuando estaba en prepa, solía pensar que era muy divertido burlarse de la gente, especialmente porque estaba en una escuela pública muy grande y diversa, además era un snob gigante. Pero sí, siempre tenía algo que decir de todo el mundo y, siendo honestos, lo hacía de forma muy chistosa, jaja, pero eso está fuera del punto ahora...

Por suerte, salí de esa etapa y aprendí a respetar más a la gente (con la burla ocasional de vez en cuando), y estoy feliz de haberlo hecho porque eso me permitió aprender un poco de cada persona que conozco... Esto nos lleva a una historia especial del pasado: cuando iba en prepa, me acuerdo de burlarme mucho de esta niña que tenía un arete de septum gigantesco, creía que era una cosa horrible y aún así aquí estamos, seis años después, conmigo usando uno falso.

Y, por supuesto, yo me veo mucho mejor que ella allá en el día y sí, la apodé "niña-toro", pero la lección principal aquí es que esas son sólo cosas que dijimos; cambiamos, crecemos y evolucionamos y la moda está aquí para ser divertida y para ayudarnos a expresar quiénes somos sin tener que hablar mucho; así que, siempre y cuando sean constantes y honestos con ustedes mismos, está bien atreverse a nuevas cosas: diviértanse con la ropa y los accesorios, digo, de todas formas nos tenemos que vestir ¿no es así?
