This is a collaboration called All Choked Up between four bloggers, including myself, showcasing our take on chokers combined with our divergent styles.
Chokers have been a very popular trend lately, but I’ve only started wearing them recently after I got a coupon for Hot Topic.
Now I have like three.
I can’t remember.
Now there’s something I want to get off my chest, but first, let me set the scene and give you some background information.
There are so many students enrolled at my school that there are four shacks across the street for some of the Government, Economic, and World History classes. Right next to them is a field house for the football teams. The school funded a bridge for students to cross over to the other side for safety precautions.
Last week the air conditioning in my Government AP class, which was already quite shitty, decided to completely stop functioning. As a result, my class was relocated to a room in the field house while the school orders a new one.
Now, you’re probably wondering why this is important.
Let me tell you.
When we entered the field house, we were surrounded by freshly painted lockers in vibrant red. It’s literally the size of three classrooms combined into one. We were then led to a staircase into a conference room. It had two long tables, walls that were in fact white boards, and an interactive whiteboard at the front of the room.
Towards the other end is a folding door that reaches all four corners of the room. When you open it, it’s another huge conference room with a door that leads to another staircase which is an exit.
Now that’s all well and good, but here’s the point I’m trying to make.
The school has money to revamp the field house, but they can’t give me some freakin’ air conditioning in a teeny shack that’s not even a third of the field house?!?!?
Or better yet, have those four shacks be on campus? I mean, there are four other ones at the very back of the school near one of the science wings. And to add insult to injury, they’re right next to the trash and recycle bins.
I don’t mean to be ungrateful but it’s just so odd how one of the four core subjects, Social Studies, has been given small huts that are either across the street or near our trash. Especially since it’s evident that there’s money for an elective like sports.
Okay, in all honesty I don’t care that much about it.
All I want is some aircon.
Especially with Houston’s humid weather. I, and I’m sure my classmates can agree, am not too keen on always showing up sweaty like a wet chihuahua.
Here are everyone else’s All Choked Up looks:
A huge thank you to everyone that was part of this collaboration! All of our looks are absolutely fabulous!
And a huge thanks to those of you who put up with my mini rant.
