Day 27 of 29 Days
BUTTON EYE motif, resistance

This is a somewhat self portrait, dressed in as a home sewn rag doll, sitting in a public classroom. I had been in a mainstreamed program for the past 11 years from second grade to high school. And this is the worst time I had ever experienced was, to wear a GIANT FM device wrapped around my chest, with a headphone, that bumped against the desk. Students would stare and laugh, and there I was pretending I did not see them. After class, they would tease me and I had wanted to punch them in the face real hard, but I was a too nice girl who rather suffered so much. It was the most unforgettable experience ever.
