Over the last 3 years,
I've slowly internalized the notion that wearing anything except studs on my ears is uncool.
The sentiment came as a shock.
After waiting until 17 to get my ears pierced, I was kind of like that repressed teenager who goes psycho upon entering college.
Out. of. control.
I suddenly started buying earrings compulsively. And naturally only of the most obnoxious sort.
Dangly, giant hoops, fossilized leaves and painfully heavy white shells - anything .... just so long as it would be guaranteed to immediately identify me as a scraggly hippie.
Then, to my horror -
college, leggings, oversized tees, and the overall idea of "effortless cool" infiltrated my psyche,
and dangling large works of art from my ears suddenly seemed so....
Like I was looking for attention.
So, despite my affinity for earwear (not worms. bleh), I temporarily denied my obsession in the name of "cool"...
a mistake I'll never make again.

And even though I realize that the whole heavy head extremities thing is suddenly back "in" again,
I'm hoping that even when it's not, I'll still stick to my proverbial guns.
Because, though it might seem "desperate",
is there really anything easier than throwing on a pair of earrings (/faux chrome vine) to make an instant wee statement?
