Poo Poo on Connotations

   I am extremely thankful to be born who I am when I am. This is a very very special part of history that we are all LIVING. And I am so thankful to be living it with a loving family that has kept me in a christian home in a beautiful state of a free country. We truly are blessed.
   That said – why don’t us Americans embrace other cultures and time periods a little more? There are so many amazing things we could learn from our neighbors and ancestors. For example… how to dress:

    There is something so feminine and elegant about head scarfs. Not only do they drape in all the most flattering of ways, they keep your hears and head warm. With all the exposure, globalization, and emphasis on vintage fashion in recent years, why in the world are we still knotting wimpy pieces of fabric around our necks and calling it winter fashion? Americans just haven’t gotten it, and I’m waiting waiting for them to come around.
   While I try not be obnoxious in my clothing choices, while I am not gleaning for attention: I must say I’m just going to have to embrace it. I can’t wait for these silly American fashion trendsetters any longer. I can’t wait for the rest of the country to have their Epiphany.These head scarfs are too practical and too beautiful to be neglected. Its enough to make me want to ignore the stares and misconceptions and start dressing like a Muslim girl or a fifties movie star.

Join me. Guess who else is in the club?

I'm Susanna, a 20-year-old Christian girl incorrigibly addicted spontaneous adventures. My first dream was to become a pioneer. Unfortunately, I was born a couple centuries late, so I've decided to read, cook, run, and travel the world until my time machine is finished. You'll mostly likely find me getting into trouble and/or eating licorice. I am currently blogging the misadventures of a middle-school teacher in training. Come join me on my quest to become the next Ms. Frizzle!
