OK so highschool lasts maybe 4 years give or take a few years (depending on what country you're from and how well you can do in school.) In highschool there are two types of people. Those who stay true and those who don't (as you so kindly stated).
The first go on to enjoy the rest of their lives without too much difficulty (because university is much bigger and cool is individualism) making many friends and well just all around awesome. The others lose them selves in the constantly changing mold of society
Its a dumd thing if a persons cool they should be liked not ass kissed but it wasnt like that at my school i was Popular because i was funny i think if you call some one Popular today it just means you have alot of friends today really.
Wow. This is really hard to say but, I am not popular in my old school when I was in the Philippines. :/ The whole students in my school knows who I am. But they talk and gossip about me and say that I am ugly and dumb. :/ But, I don't really care. My classmate judges my looks. :/
While in my new school in CA. They don't judge of my apperance but they judge the persons personality. I am happy that I got out of that school when I was in the Philippines.
Remember: Popularity isn't important doesn't make you powerful and cool at school. Everyone are popular in their own style and their own cool way.
this also goes to catergorzing people asians, jocs, preps, emo,goths, skaters, nerds, plain wierdos, the only reason people want to be popular is because it makes school life easier..... and i was an asian track star skater, part joc and part guitarist so i was multi so i chose to be multi to observe people of different lives and i concluded that some didnt chose they had no choice either by friends or personal life........ so ignore popularity and face foward make friends be smart and enjoy life in school as it is
nya, I'm in high school now and there are a bunch of people who think that they're popular but no one ever cares about them In my school, we're just determined who we'll hang out with the rest of the school year at the beggining of it. After that, people don't except you into there group...but, popularity isn't important. You shouldn't waste 3 or 4 years of your life trying to get people to notice you. You should just be yourself, and people will be your friends. As for me, all people put me into the "preppy" and "goth" groups, so I hang out with a number of people. Just, don't try and be something you aren't. Just be yourself!
Guys I asked this question because I was going to a new school and knew no one there first of all Alesithir or whatever the hell your name is don't try to act hard becuase you're one of those strong enough to make it being original. I was original at my old school but the thing is I was miserable so for people to call me fake is a mistake. It was a thought that I wrote down and posted as a thread so I could get your opinions. Not to be insulted I mean it isn't a crime at times to question your beliefs.
I was going to boarding school so I just wanted to be safe and by the way Alesithir I stayed original so go f**k yourself b*tch.
