Back when I was middle school age (13 or 14) I would always go out to movies and whatnot with the 'cool group' but two years of high school has brought to some realizations. Regardless of what people say, I'd rather chill at home by myself or with a couple of good friends and just blaze and watch some tv and mess around. Most people would think my life was shitty now, since people would probably consider me a loser and all, but I am so much happier than when I was considered 'popular'. Its like common sense (with the benefit of intoxicants) kind of arrived for me and I actually did stop caring what people who weren't involved in my life thought about me. When I was in middle school its like other people thought so much of me, but I didn't think anything of myself. I mean I was so depressed, taking anti-depressants, seeing psychiatrists, but then everybody thought i was some really cool kid when really I was all pissed off at myself. So if you are like 13 and happy with who you are but not living up to popular expectations, don't worry, the sooner you learn to do what makes you happy and stop worrying about if other people think you are a loser the better.
