Access denied

Today, in this hot climate, I and my fellow art class peers, followed our teacher to the sex education class. Now, technically this was for the yr 9 students, but we wanted to go and... well basically watch them squirm! (sadistic I know). Anyway whilst I was in there, I began wondering why we hadn't had one of these Sex ed talks. It turns out that because we're in a Catholic school, we were not (until recently) allowed to hear about contraception devises etc. I understand that the Catholic Church is against contraception & sex before marriage... but seriously, I think they would be a bit naive to consider that most teenagers wait until they're married to have sex. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, I just think if teenagers are going to have sex, they need to be equipped mentally. A lot of the time, people get into complicated situations at a really young age. One could almost say, sex at young ages is becoming 'normal' sadly. But not teaching kids how to be responsible and safe in sex, what is that saying? They want girls at 14 to get pregnant? They don't want them to have options? HIV/AIDS, herpes, hepatitis B aren't uncommon. I just think teenagers need to be educated to make the right decisions for them. I don't think religion should blind someone to their options.

Those zebra tights go off tap!

Love the T

The self expression through fashion these days is Epic. If only it was Winter here. I love the layers.

Today I had a day off, from school. It was relaxing, although I felt I was letting someone down. I'm not sick, I'm just having a 'mental health day'. I'm tired. I guess its the end of the year, and I'm starting to get a little frustrated with people and myself. I'm ready for a break. 15 days to go YAY!

I was looking on and I found some beautiful outfits that just scream summer. I'm loving the jackets, very military, very chic. Enjoy.
This outfit reminds me of a cranky grandmother, but in a good way!
Love the floral top & fascinator

The jacket!

The match each other so well

Love the jacket and the shorts

Change of scene...

Hi. I'm Georgie, I'm the blogger responsible for Gentle potter. I decided that I would like to create a new blog. I think because a lot has changed in my life, I would like to slow down, relax into a new pace. I'm in yr 12 at the moment, and on the 19th of December, I would have officially finished my first, hectic (to put it lightly) term of yr 12. Today, I just completed a massive assessment task, where I had to write a feature article and then re-create its 1600 word body in 50 minutes, therefore, I'm feeling quite fatigued. I'm having a 'mental health day' tomorrow as my mother puts it, which I think is an earned day off. At the moment, I'm watching Narnia, Prince Caspian, which is pretty pretty cool. I like the dwarf's and the little digital recreations. In Gentle Potter, I guess I didn't express who I was in particular. I wanted to remain a bit un attached, but I'm like that in real life, so why not express myself in Cyberspace?

- I am quite honest
- I want to be an actor
-I want to train at NIDA in Sydney
-I have my P plates! and just recently, I was honked on a roundabout
-I work in a shoe shop
-I'm quite sensitive
-I love movies
-My favourite subject is Art
-I'm aiming to get 88 in my HSC
-I'm intimidated by boys (I have trouble looking many in the eyes)
-I'm a bit of a feminist
-I love trashy TV (90210) I love Silver!
- I'm a homebody, give me a computer and a dvd on a Saturday night and I'm set, if that makes me a loser, I don't care.

So there you have it, an tiny increment of who I am. I hope to blog some dominant blogs on here. I'm going to use this blog as a venting space and just express who I am on Cyberspace. A place where you can express what you might feel is inexpressible in real life.
