Today was hardcore – as in I actually got to talk about metal music with a couple of my kids while they worked on missing assignments for physics. I have a special spot in my heart for hardcore, screamo and all around metal music. I was obsessed with bands like Marylin Manson and Ministry in the late 90’s, then moved on to stuff like Deftones and Will Haven in the early 2000’s. That kind of music, while not for everyone, really spoke to me as an angsty 20 year old. I love every chance I get to talk about this stuff and will wax on for days about various hardcore bands and my favorite songs. I have a few boys in my physics class who share my love for all things metal-ish in music. Needless to say, they are a few of my favorite peoples now a days. Not only that, these boys will actually check in after school with me to ask how my day is going when they know I’ve had a rough one. These are the silver linings we teachers will always remember.
My outfit today wasn’t too hardcore – the J.Crew shirt lends a lot of sweetness, as does the unicorn necklace. But I feel hardcore all the same. Black jeans and red lipstick will do that for any outfit.
