When I was in highschool, I never really fit in with one group.
The fact that I had my own opinions, was not a brainless android, had no problem telling anybody (no matter how important they apparently were) when I didn't like something they were doing, and that I didn't grow up with a rich version of the brady bunch - all led to me not quite fitting in with the brainless gap crew.
Though they rarely ridiculed me directly, as they saw I could come in handy when they needed an extra member for a group project and such - their mere existence and the manner with which they looked down their noses are everybody else was more than enough to make them the bane of my existence.
I had a crush on one of them in grade nine (before I realized that they sucked), and was never able to live this down. Even in grade 11 and 12 I STILL heard comments about how I was the girl that apparently stalked their freind. Because you know, talking to someone outside of "your group" constitutes as stalking now.
Anyhow. I can sit pretty knowing that even if I go home next semester I'm still far more successfuly than 90% of them will ever be - at last check one of them was still living at home working a lame job, and has the clap. Another one (who once said that everyone could go to his party, except me) was kicked out of his program for stealing from other students. Yet another couple have left school and were last heard on their parents couches.
I really should connect with these people again and ask how it feels to be such a winner.
I've always wanted to know
