    Oh my god, I remember relentlessly begging for braces a few years ago. Now I have them, and some days I seriously consider ripping them off with pliers. XD

    I really liked this comic! I think this is so true for so many of us.

    This is honestly so highly relate-able. ;___; For the past years of my life, I’ve been through so many forms of imitation and one of them is through clothing. I’ve followed trends, imitated peers or celebrities, tv show characters… heck, even some of the eye candy and styles I see on RookieMag. But all because I’ve always wanted to have style, to find the personal style. I wanted to see where I fit in and where I feel the most comfortable in and whether or not people will accept me for where I fall to.

    In the end, it’s always about ones self. It’s okay to imitate because imitation is simply one step to being closer to finding yourself and who you are. :)

    My first reaction to this was to go search and see if I could find myself a Zenon shirt of my own. They exist! Totally Lunar!

    I’ve been following Taylor’s comics on Tumblr for a while, and this one is awesome as usual. The last slide is my favorite; I find that so damn relatable. :)

    I totally had a Joan Jett phase, spray painted t-shirts and wanted to dye my hair black

    I have been dealing with that stuff in the last picture for some time now, and it’s so confusing and weird.
    This is my favorite piece on Rookie, it’s perfect and I can relate to it so much.

  • Britney July 29th, 2013 10:25 PM

    This is was so amazing, Taylor Ruth! (I love the “Heathers” one sooooo much)

  • KatGirl July 30th, 2013 12:12 PM

  • KatGirl July 30th, 2013 12:14 PM

  • Marijose July 30th, 2013 3:11 PM

    i’m laughing so hard because i also have green tip-dyed hair and refuse to wear bras now and then, sadly i don’t own a bikini kill t-shirt! :-(

  • Laura Muller August 7th, 2013 6:58 AM

    I wish my mother was so opposed to braces…
