I come home and talk to my real friends that I love being around.

I'm the "weird" one, and proud of it. I love horses, I love animals in general, I'm responsible, I don't drink, I'm a good student, I'm artistic, I'm good at music. I just fail at athletics XD (Except Ultimate Frisbee and riding)

Everyone has issues. The "popular" kids in my class seem to have everything, but I know they don't. Most of them are average grade-wise (Meaning Bs and Cs). Their older siblings hate them because of how they act (They drink a lot and stuff, my brother is the soccer star, he's friends with all their siblings, and he tells me that stuff). They never spend time with their families.

For everything that they THINK is wrong with you, you have something they don't have. Middle/High school are just chapters in your life. You can let them bring you down or you can find all those things that make you different and special and use them to your advantage :)

God only knows what would happen to me if I didn't play the "I'll help you on your homework NOW, but you owe me" card all the time. If it wasn't for the fact that I help everyone who asks I'd be so screwed XD I don't live up to expectations because everyone expected an athletic social butterfly just like my brother is, but I'm the opposite of him.
Helping everyone who asks?

THis sound like many people are fake friending and taking advantage of you. NEVER let people use you just so you can keep "friends." It leads to a sad life. Man up and only play nice guy to the ones that really care.

"When life is like hell, keep on goin'! Don't slow down, whip right through it! You might even get out before the evil knows you're there!"

If you think that life isn't working out, look up! Get outside, feel the sun, listen to the birds! Say a prayer! (If you're Christian.)

Oh, I help them. But the deal with them is that they owe me when I want something. It's not a one-way street.

They get help NOW and I get something later :P And I do use it... I don't befriend them, and I usually just give them a nudge in the right direction, like "Try looking here." or "What does ____ mean?" and it lets them solve the rest of it themselves.

The sad thing is that this stuff doesn't just happen in high school. Adults can be just as bad. I live among senior adults who bully, and shun people because they're not like they are.

True enough Drama. My Mom lives in a retirement community down in FL and they have cliques there. Pffft. I have my husband, my Mom, my pets, my house and I'm happy.

Some people never lose that high school mentality. My old friends from high school keep trying to drag me into all night drinking parties. They gossip and start drama. I'm just not that girl anymore and they don't understand it. One of them told me "You're just not the same anymore." Yeah. I'm sober. Have you ever been the only sober person at a party? We went to a party they had (hubby and I) and we left there exhausted and bewildered. Everyone was acting like we'd never left our late teens. They were talking about people who had teased us like it was yesterday. It was kinda weird. We're almost 40. Lol.

Actually Equine Vet is number one on my list :) Well, after being a musician, but that's less likely to come true :)

We have cliques here, too. Status is a big deal around here. What part of town you grew up in is a big deal to these people. I didn't grow up here, I grew up in Colorado. People in our small town there were/are mostly poor but they're always willing to help you in any way they can and they may not have much but they're willing to share what they do have. Not here! Everyone is out for themselves and couldn't care less about anyone else. I want to go back to Colorado! Waaaahh! lol
