Let’s start off with defining what ‘popular’ is:
liked or admired by many people or by a particular person or group.
“she was one of the most popular girls in the school”
synonyms: well liked, liked, favoured, in favour, well received, approved, admired, accepted, welcome, sought-after, in demand, desired, wanted;
I was going to paste the definition that the Urban Dictionary provides, but it was so long, longer than my entire blog post.
So the other day, my friend Elle and I were on our way to Art when these ‘popular’ girls from the year above us started walking straight at us. Not on purpose, they needed to go the way we were coming from. But either way: they did not move. They came at us in the same direction and walked at us as if we were going to be the ones to move.
I was like NO. I charged right back at them, subtley. And they moved eventually.
The moral of this story: don’t be indirectly bossed around by people, kids.
I just find it really annoying when these ‘popular’ peeps are all pretty and some how better than you and your like, I could pick out at least 20 flaws in you.
But a lot of my friends are ‘popular’ and are really nice, so really you have to decide whether you are going to budge for someone who wants to walk all over you, or not.
I for one, do not budge for the wrong people. I think it’s about time they learned that.
