    I am not nor have I ever been.

    But I secretly wish I were sometimes. Just so that it'd feel like it mattered when I say little things. I know I"m supposed to appreciate myself and what I think is what matters....but dang once in a while it'd be nice to just have a little audience applauding. I think...

    Sometimes I want to be,

    though. I'd like the loud whoops, cheers, and applause whenever I go onstage. Feels like I'm wanted, not just tolerated. But then I think of the attention I'd garner from the popularity, and that I'd probably have to be in the spotlight many times, so I think: 'Nah, I'm...

    I've never been popular,

    from day one I've always been the outcast, weirdo or freak. All my elementary and middle school years all I ever wanted was to fit in, and be popular. I went through a living hell. Literally. But now I've kinda just realized I don't wanna be like any of those people, because...

    Popularity is something I'm definitely not

    familiar with. I was never popular in school, even now, I only have a small handful of friends. I'm not popular amongst my coworkers, nor am I popular on social media, I'm not popular on here either. There are times where I wish I was more popular, times where I envy those who...

    I'm the shy, awkward girl whose best friends

    are what popular people call 'rejects'. Popular people are shallow, they don't understand true friendship.

    Now it looks like I just scare people, how noble my intentions always are, some people just rather stay away from me.

    Sometimes I get sad that I don't have dozens of

    friends, but then I just have to remind myself that I don't need a lot of people. I'd much rather have a couple REAL friends than tons of fake ones.

    for all those popular people.... It must be so tiring to be a popular, social butterfly (since on average, most people who become the president of the student council are popular social people, and so they have even more responsibilities to take care of) And the fact that they...

    It's Never Been Something I've Desired

    Now don't get me wrong.  It's not like I'm unpopular.  I've generally always been well liked but I've never been part of the in crowd.  It's never really appealed to me.  In high school, I didn't have a clique.  I didn't really belong to any particular group.  I was just...

    The idea of having some sort of social "rank"

    in school sickens me. What makes a person, a girl, popular? Her "perfect hair", her massive group of "friends", her makeup, her brand named clothes, the way she can manipulate others into thinking she's popular? I don't get it. I don't mean to stereotype. I really don't. I also...

    but I'm okay with that.

    I can't expect everyone to accept people who are different. If I don't like the kids at school, they don't have to like me. Personally, I don't think, it is good to be popular. Because this is the main reason, why I m so unpopular: I used to have a best friend. We saw eachother...

    I think the whole thing is stupid.

    There are so many labels. Why can't we just take the labels off and learn to accept everyone whatever your background may be. I honestly don't mind not being popular. there is so many things wrong with that idea.
