Popular Girls--Writing prompt
From my vantage to be popular , you had to be on dance team, or hang out with certain people. Which I did neither. See geeky girl who had to ask the guys to go on dates for the important dances like junior prom, Homecoming, and Winter Ball. Yes if I wanted to go to the dance I had to ask them for dates. Ugh --didn't like High school. I didn't do the Senior Ball because then I had ask someone to go out with me. I did do a date night but very cheap ..like the dollar movies and dinner.
I think that there is always a part of us that wants to be in the crowd and have friends.
Fast forward to present day: Finding friends on face book from High School..I was able to find and be friends with those same people who were popular on Facebook. I even got invited to hang with the popular kids , which to me was surpring for the invite, but I wasn't going to drive 3 hours away to hang with them. Thanks so much for the invite.
I do have wonderful friends now online and real life..and there comes a point when you have to be happy with your choices and realize that maybe you weren't meant to be popular. I like to think that with the friends I have online like Angie, Rachel, Laura, Christine or Heather--that I'm hanging with the popular kids. I didn't realize that with being online that there are popular people too. But as with life..I'm enjoying the friends I do have and not worrying whether I'm popular or not. I'm going with the flow.
Makes me think of the song Popular for Wicked :
