Dear Dish-It: How Should I Decorate My Locker This Year? :: Discuss It!

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 guess it depends on where you live. If there is a state / country that doesn't allow you to have a phone until you're 13, that's utterly ridiculous and I'd imagine they're in the minority with that law.

No idea if someone's already written a reply similar to mine, I didn't read much of them because this isn't really a debate, it's more of a straight up question with the answer being because quite a lot of people under the age of 18 are incapable of making responsible votes. I mean, let's take a step back. Everyone knows Trump would be a ridiculous candidate to vote for, his views are borderline (if not full on) fascist. He wants to keep a database of who is Muslim. If you don't find that ridiculous and outright bigotry and discrimination, don't even bother me with your response. (Long story short, vote for Bernie Sanders, I live in the UK and even I know that) Anyway, I'm going off topic. The reason I detailed why Trump would be a terrible person to vote for is because everyone with common sense knows it, meaning people under 18 too. And what happens when you give voting privileges to a 14 year old basement dweller who spends all his time on # ###? He thinks it's funny to cast a vote for Trump. In fact, it's not only your average pre-######### teenager who will find this funny, there's probably quite a lot of people who would vote for Trump "for the lols". Yes, there are people like that. And what happens when enough of these idiots think it's funny to vote for Trump? He racks up a decent amount of votes, not to mention all the ignorant racists who will be voting for him, and let's face it, there's lots of them. Maybe you, as a person under 18 would not vote stupidly, I know I wouldn't, but sadly, people who are under 18 and mature don't make up the majority, meaning you're going to get a lot of people who don't know what they're doing voting for dumb reasons whether it be "for the lols" or because they're voting for who their parents support.
