There was a time when I used to watch films like Teen Beach Movie or Grease. The cast was dressed in leather from top to bottom, and I couldn't help but think to myself: how cool do they look? I wanted to look at myself the way I looked at them. Later on, I discovered my love for metal music, and then I truly knew that I just had to get a leather jacket. But, whether it was the financial situation, or it just seemed unnecessary to my parents, I didn’t. I never stopped dreaming though. One lovely day my Grandma came to me with a present - it was the moment I'd been waiting for. (Grandparents are amazing, aren’t they?).
The moment I put it on, I knew it was meant to be. I’d never felt more like myself before. Since that day, years have passed. Now there are many different styles of leather jackets. You can make it elegant or edgy, casual or dressed-up. But no matter what I do, whether I’m at a concert (remember those times?), or just wearing another protective layer on an ordinary day, if I have my leather jacket on, I feel like I can take on the world.
