    Re: Popularity in School

    Popularity can be complicated since it boils down to politics. There are groups and what funds those groups. Commitments must be made especially when a line is drawn on the sand. I'd like to be friends with everyone but sometimes fights break out or a difference of opinion and my loyalty is questioned... so it's like Harry Potter, you have to know who your real friends are and who are prejudiced, bigots, elitist or some skinhead who are politically incorrect. I tend to side with people who believe in manners and religion though open minded to others of another religion as long as it is not a cult. To me the quickest way to popularity is sports. My fave sport is basketball so I like the Laker crowd. It's fun to bond with others for the same reason like the crowd enjoying the olympics and athletes representing. Go USA!

    In school I'd root for the basketball and band people, but never considered popularity as big a deal as standing up for your beliefs, or finding yourself or what to major in at college. Mainly have fun and follow your true interests.

    Re: Popularity in School

    I had an awesome time going through school, I had long hair and towards the end a beard. I loved metal and rock music and wasn't subtle about it. As such I got a lot of attention from the "cool kids", and by attention I mean beatings. Well I say beating, turns out the one thing the guys had respect for was someone willing to fight back and thats what I did. This however was a double-edges sword, while the stronger bullies would have respect for me and see me as an equal, all the lower years saw me as a goal, if they could beat me they would be popular too...

    ..Needless to say they didn't.

    So the cool guys liked me, the girls on the otherhand, at this age are very shallow. Long hair = greasy, smelly horrible person. Luckily, being smarter then average and having a good sense of humour, those who actually bothered to talk to me quickly realised I wasn't so bad.

    So yeah, was I popular? Not really but I had a lot of friends. Funny how the two are different...

    Re: Popularity in School

    To be popular in the high school is a common trouble and anybody escape of that. To be or not to be popular, you don't have another choice. But i can see one simple thing on this topic: when the popular-cheerleader-girl or the super-football-player grow-up forget the feeling of the popularity and live a normal life. And try to protect their childrens of the popular boys on the schools. It's an interesting circle.

    Re: Popularity in School

    hmm i not gonna lie..i did do a couple things in the past just be popular..but honestly though its not really worth it in the future.(heck i barely remember those ppl anymore).i realize getting ppl to like me for just the things i do ,say,wear,,means nothing .yeah i did it in the past..i mean everyone wants to be accpected in life..but if they dont like the O.G. me..they are not friends to me..True the things we did to be accpected where cool and all..but then u say why am i doing this..for me or them...

    Re: Popularity in School

    it depends on what person you are. it is normally stupid to only focus on friends and pointless crap that wont matter years later, or you can focus on being popular, and f up your life. so..
    ive gone from being a beautiful star athelete, popular, etc.etc. to moving and being horibly depressed and cutting my hair short and cutting myself as well. so..its all up to you
