    Glad To Say I'm Not

    I am glad to say I am not popular and I never have been. I never felt the need to act a certain way or show off, just to get others to notice me or make friends. I will always be myself. Nothing more and nothing less.

    I'm Not Popular

    I don't know why the popular poeple I know, are "popular" I personally think they're losers- once you're popular, you start to showoff and think you're better than everyone and then put everyone down by becoming selfish and self obsorbed.. I think popularity is...

    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...

    I feel popularity is a dying phase

    now days. I never really was popular in high school. Everybody knew me and liked me but that's because I just did my own thing and didn't trice for the attention of others. And I feel most people evolve to doing their own things in life when they start adventuring the world...

    When I was in fifth grade I made a decision

    I don't care. Whatever people are popular these

    days it's just for being jerks. Only few people are popular for making contributions to the public. Either way, I wouldn't like to popular in any way.

    I'm Not Hated Either

    I'm a quiet kind of girl. I don't socialize too much, I rarely put myself out there in the social arena. But I'm likable. Many even call me a plain jane. I don't wear makeup and I dress comfortably. I'm just me. nO glits, no glamour, I don't keep up with the latest trends, I don...

    I wonder what it's like to be popular,

    you know, how it feels to be tall, dark, drop dead gorgeous - in other words, the winner of a genetic lottery. I'd look in envy some times at the cool kids who made heads turn and who were simply amazing. I wonder what it's like to be able to admire yourself in the mirror or...

    The truth is that popularity isn't gonna get u

    anywhere in life,being popular isn't really important;you don't need to be popular to get anywhere in life,who knows maybe when u grow up and become successful some of those "popular" kids will end up working for u.

    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...

    Keeping up with people is a bore, putting on a fake smile and pretending to be nice to everybody is disgusting. I'm too honest to be popular, I don't need people following me around and wanting to say hi even though I don't know who they are. Just leave me alone. I want friends...

    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.

    I am most definitely not by any means popular.

    And after all the years of thinking I want to be. I don't think I would anymore. I'm happy with not having any friends it just leaves me with more time to read or draw or run or think or listen to music or play with beau.
