When I was a teenager, I wore a high school uniform pretty much every day of the week. It was nothing fancy, just a blue t-shirt and the high school uniform. It seems so nostalgic now when I think back to this memory. Life at school required very little effort and we had no worries and no responsibilities.
There was no special occasion, other than being allowed into a new school. However, being part of that class was a special opportunity and the friendships I forged in those years will last a lifetime. I was lonesome and confused during those first few days of school, but very soon the others welcomed me with open arms. I became one of them, a special group of souls.
I remember shopping for the uniform with my mum. I was very fussy couldn't choose the right shirt that would make me happy, so we settled for a few different styles. We went to a cheap market at first to get the shirt, but that didn't fly with me as the shirts were of poor quality. In the end we went to a school uniform supply shop and I found a fabric that felt soft and comfortable.
There was no real reaction to my clothes from my fellow classmates as we were all dressed very similar. Although we all looked exactly the same, it gave us all sense of unity and belonging to our school.
