When I think of school spirit my mind immediately goes back to high school. But maybe that's because my post high school education consists of graduating from a trade school that didn't have a mascot and colors.

SchoolSpirit (10) WLcopyI was a T-Bird and as you can see, our school colors were orange, white and blue. According to our fight song the official colors were orange and white, but we got the blue worked in there somehow. Not very original school colors. I'd bed that there's at least one of my fellow twinsies that is sporting the same colors.

SchoolSpirit (14) WLcopyI got brave and tried the explosion again. I think this is the third or fourth time I've attempted it. I used painters tape this time. The lines aren't perfect, but it's by far my best explosion yet.  Of course as soon my top coat started to set, I gouged my ring finger nail with my other hand.  AAARRRGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so mad!!  It was completely lifted and rolled up.  I attempted to unroll it with a toothpick then smooth it out with my wet finger.  It actually looks pretty good compared to what I started with.  I used Jordana Orangsicle and Smooth Blue and Sally Hansen White On.
