    I May Never Have Been The It Girl...

    I don't need to be the center of attention. I use to admire the people who were, but now I realize how hard it was. Everyone's watching your every move, and your mistakes make a greater impact. I liked the idea of having a lot of friends and always having somewhere to go...But...

    Nope

    I was that weird goth kid in the corner with her nose buried in a book, or sketching madly in a sketchbook. My classmates hated me, my teachers were freaked out by me, and basically I spent my school years alone except for a few fellow outcasts.

    My Desperate Story

    Unfortunately, even by the 5th grade, I was somewhat obsessed with being known... basically, being something other than myself. In the 5th grade, I was a very quiet girl, tagging along with two friends always. We laughed, we joked, it seemed like we could be in one of those 90's...

    I Wanted To Be

            Back in school I was a nerd - a Straight-A student with virtually no friends. I wanted to be popular, not because I wanted more friends, but because I wanted to fit in and be "cool." Well, I never was.       ...

    Life

    At school I wasn't one of the populars who think they are better than everyone else, hell I wasn't even friends with any of them. To be honest I think you could have called me a loner but if you called me that to ma face I would say no I wasn't because I actually had friends...

    "popular" Is Relative.

    To be completely honest, I only joined this group because of the avi. That's ******* hilarious. But anyways, I wasn't popular all through high school. I had a group of about 6-10 friends that I was fairly close with. 3 that I was really close with. After I graduated, this all...

    & Don't Care Either

    All it matters is that I'm a good-natured person. Not all popular people deserve that "honor" anyway. Lots of them are dirty snobs. Society is twisted & backwards, I swear!

    I Don't Have Many Friends Either...

    So... I'm not having a graduation party. Everyone in my family is really shocked, but to be honest, I don't know many people to invite. I don't think I'll go to any either since I gotta save money. Don't have a party, do go to any parties. I'm really nervous about college, too...

    Never Was, Never Will Be

    I've never been popular, mostly because I am just not willing to do what the "popular girls" do in order to become popular. People know OF me, but they don't really know me and sometimes I prefer to keep it that way. I am an oddball, different and unique and never have really fit...
