It’s absurd that people choose not to talk to or befriend other people outside their clique just because of the so-called “status quo”. Actually it’s not just absurd, it’s stupid. You may be thinking, “does this actually happen in real life?” and the answer to that is: YES THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENS IN REAL LIFE AND I HAVE SEEN IT RIGHT BEFORE MY VERY EYES. I know, it’s hard to believe that these kinds of people exist, but that’s reality. Some people are just too afraid to defy the laws of high school cliques.
So why am I ranting about this? Because it’s high time to throw this bullshit status quo out the window and let yourself be with the people you want to be with. Make new friends. Take the time to get to know some of the people you haven’t really talked to in school and maybe you’ll end up being really good friends with them. It’s all about stepping out of your comfort zone and not letting others tell you what to do or who you should hang out with.
Fuck labels. Just because you're seen as one thing doesn't mean can't be another. In the end, all these bullshit names and cliques won't matter after you graduate high school. It won't matter how popular or unpopular you were. So make the most out of your four years and be nice to people!
