I Never Did the Cool Things

    I never did anything "cool" when I was younger.  And guess what?  I don't give a crap.  I might have wanted to be "cool" in high school.  But now that I look back, I think I was WAY cooler than all the "popular"...

    Outsider Me

    At public school, I always kept to myself. I was the 'good' student. I got good grades and proved I was smart. And I would be the one to tell if somebody did something wrong. I was always the one who got made fun of, because I'd never had sex before or because I was scared of...

    Nope

    I definitely did not do the 'Cool Things' (whatever that may mean) but I never got any flak for it either. Whether it was because I am just that cool or because I moved so much is highly debatable. ;D

    I Never Cared...

    I wasn’t a cool kid because I never cared what the “cool kids” thought. I felt that all the “cool kids” we’re obnoxiously self-righteous and rude.They all thought I wasn’t as good as them, but truth is...I was better than them and I knew it.Unlike them and their...

    I Don't Live In the Cool World.

    Ever since I was about 8 years old, back in primary school, I had no friends. I have had no friends until my second year in high school. I was too smart, too shy, too much into reading books, too absent because of my overactive fantasy world. Too much of a tomboy. When others...

    No, I Didn't

    I was the one that the so called cool kids picked on.  They made elementary and high school both bad experiences for me, for the most part.   Back then I was shy and quiet - even up to now, to an extent I still am - but back during those years, it was terrible...

    My Tiny Autobiography

    Middle and high school were BY FAR the worst years of my life.  I was painfully shy (thanks to a lifetime of emotional abuse) and though I wasn't anything close to the biggest loser I'd ever met, I suppose I was something of a dork.   I wasn't into team...

    Not Till Later?

    I was never cool, growing up. So, I never did the "cool" things, that I knew many teens did and bragged about in the school halls. I never stole beer, shoplifted, drove my parents car (without permission), smoked pot, or had sex. I was never invited to parties (until I...

    I was a cool free zone in high school... unless you think being a nerd and staying home watching Bufffy is cool lol. On camp two of my friends climbed out a window to get stoned on the beach... they climbed over me, I slept through it all lol. In college, yeah, I did some cool...

    Always An Outcast

    I was never one to follow trends. I was always wearing thrift store clothing and reading obscure literature/listening to obscure bands. Pretty quiet and introverted. Kind of a loner. Needless to say, I wasn't one of the "cool kids".

    all the generic 'cool' things that all the other girls did (out of my own choice, not to impress them) when they smoked, drank, had sex, curled their hair, went horse riding, became captain of the netball team, got full marks, won a horse show, it was cool. it was uber cool...

    So Uncool Im Cool

    It doesnt bother me anymore as to if I am cool or not - I dont really think about it to be honest.  I dont feel a need to be cool - Im not really sure what that even means.  It used to really upset me when I was young though - like about 8-12yrs old.  It seemed to...

    I Did the Dorky Things

    I was in all the musical things like band, chorus, and drama.  I made good grades.  But cool things?  Definitely not.  We didn't have a prom, so that was completely off limits.  I sucked at sports.  I was never once invited to a party.  I never...

    I Don't Care

    I never did the cool things in high school. I didn't play sports. I wasn't on the debate team. I just didn't care. The whole idea of organized activities made me sick. I'm not a team player I didn't care when that kid died from putting his corvette into a tree. Actually, it made...
