I’m having a bit of a personal crisis. As some of you may know, I started a desk job some time this year. This “desk job” is actually teaching.
Here’s the problem: tomorrow is the Black Alice-hosted Alice in Wonderland screening. I’ve been looking forward to this for ages! But I also promised my Civics Tutorial class (also known as homeroom class/form class/etc) that I would go with them to the museum tomorrow. I call up my class rep who tells me that the visit is in the morning. Alright, so it’s a simple matter. I wear normal, teacher-ly stuff to the museum with my students, then run off to the Cathay later and join the lolitas. Right? Wrong!
Turns out that the students are thinking of going to the Cathay and watching a movie as well. Now I’m torn. Do I just wear lolita and risk having my (17-19 year old) students see me in all my frilly glory? Or do I just leave off and watch the movie with the lolitas in everyday wear and feel seriously left out?
Man, I just want to wear lolita, but I need my students to respect me too. Will they still respect me after seeing me in frills? 🙁
