J.Cole once said, “History repeats itself, and that’s just how it goes.” Well, as an aspiring fashionista, I’ve always liked to change it to “Fashion repeats itself, and that’s just how it goes.” Feature styles repeating themselves have been inevitable since forever and the same goes for the summer of 2015.

lace

For the summer of 2015, the texture, the look and the love of lace is definitely one of my favorites. In fact, there was lace on my prom dress. In my opinion, there are so many things you can do with lace as a cloth, and its versatility is what makes me love it so much.

Kyle

Throughout the night, the energy of the room kept increasing. Kyle pounded his bars through the mic, creating a constant hyper tangle of limbs, hair, and feet down in the sand. Kyle became a conductor on stage, throwing up his hands on a chorus and the crowd increased in volume, filling in the words.

After giving himself the title “best player in the world,” he could not lead his team to victory alone. In the post-game press conference, James noted, “There’s no real success if you go out losing.”

High School Musical

As an observant rising senior at KIPP Atlanta Collegiate, there are definitely some things I have learned about high school in general. Through three years without guidance from an older student, I navigated my way through the idea and reality of high school itself.

Creationism or Satanism? Why You Should Listen to Tyler, The Creator

Tyler The Creator

Although his music and productions offend people constantly, I admire the fact that he raps what he wants to rap about, and he produces what he wants to produce with no label director to answer to or a restrictive censoring agent. He is honest with himself and with his fans and I admire that, with everything he produces, he produces it only because he likes it and he thinks it’s good.

I’m very comfortable with driving because I’ve had tons of practice with my parents on and off the highway.

But you know how parents are.
