Dear Dish-It,

I don’t know how I should decorate my locker; it’s long and skinny.

Dear MCG,

Good question! Next to decorating your bedroom, decorating your school locker is a great way to express your individuality and personality. Choosing colours, themes and patterns for your locker shows the world what you like and how you express your creativity.

Girls seem to decorate their lockers more than boys. They put up pictures of celebrities, pets, friends and boyfriends. Boys tend to see a more functional and practical use for their locker: what better place to keep stinky gym socks and old cheese sandwiches?

In the same way that each of us is different, every locker is a unique expression and celebration of that difference. Here are some tips on how to go about decorating your locker this year.

1. Before you go nuts with the decoration, does your school have a locker decorating policy? Some schools are more open to your personal expression than others, so check to see what the rules at your school allow.

2. Inside your locker, though, things are different; the world is yours. Choose a favorite theme, such as: music, movies, sports, beach, party, pink, space, super heroes, hockey, skating, boarding, humour, 4-H, mice and motorcycles.

3. Pick the colors or materials that you want use for the background, like: wallpaper, painted canvas, fabrics, acrylic paint, wrapping paper, aluminum paper, mirror faux fur and neon.

4. You'll need accessories: magnets, stickies, tape, ribbons, dried leaves, pieces of fabric, glue, scissors, and 3-D postcards.

5. Items to hang on your locker walls: wooden frames, mirrors, day planner, calendar, clock, pictures, photo collages, cell phone holder.

6. Clean the locker inside. First take all your stuff out and do some cleaning before you start to apply your chosen decoration. Anything that's mouldy or leaves a bad smell has to go.

7. Above all, have fun!

I think unfiroms will be best because If you wear dresses then ..there comes a time when your out of them...you always brag your parents for new clothes....and you don't really wanna wear old ones...If you had unifroms you wouldn't have to face this problem!

   Personally I prefer free-dress. It gives students the ability to express them selves in their own unique way. Though i do understand why some schools have uniforms. To wear uniforms it shows the equality between the different people, but it as well has its negative points. It doesn't matter if you wear a uniform at school or not, there will still be people there to judge you. If they cant judge you on you're clothing choices than they'll just judge you on other stuff.  To be honest i think that uniforms shouldn't be forced, they shouldn't be dress code, both ways you'll end up with some bad outcome but only one will have some good outcomes. can you guess which? I'll give you hint, its the one with diversity.

a) People who are rude to waiters/cashiers/store employees. b) People who don't use headphones in public. Totally unforgivable.
