Just purchased Rookie: Year Book Two.
Now I will admit - I was not the biggest fan of Tavi for the longest time. I think most of it came from a place of jealousy or the fact that I didn't understand her whole message right away. But once her and her friends started Rookie I jumped on the band wagon.
I find it to be a fun read and a great research book for young girls. I don't agree with everything they prompt but believe they do more good than bad.
I can't wear just black. I tried. I think I might be the only person in the world who can't pull it off. Or maybe, just maybe, I am not cool enough. Or maybe, which is mostly likely the reason, I can't because I need just a pop of color to make me feel at ease.
Sorry "Street Ninjas*" of the world. I can't.
*Street Ninja - People who are in the fashion scene or game; only wear black. Who only wear black. Who can pull off only wearing black.
(A guttersnipe term I came up with when the trend started showing up in Seattle. Please! Feel free to use it in a sentence or tweet.)
