Were you the jock? The band geek? How about one of the popular kids? A nerd? Who were you in high school?
I was one of the "invisibles". Nobody popular, not a jock at all, not a brainiac. I didn't party. I didn't belong to any afterschool clubs of programs. I was just there. My job was to go to school, do my work and go home.
I had my group of friends, don't get me wrong. And we always went to football games and did stuff together outside of school, we just really didn't care TO be popular, or be a jock, or whatever.
Those friends in high school, are for the most part still a part of my life though. That's one of the most important things I got from high school, some of the best friends a person could have.
Funny thing is, when I helped organize our 20th reunion a few years ago, I ended up being one of the popular ones. It was a cool feeling I must admit. Even funnier was that the popular kids in high school, were no longer the popular ones people wanted to hang out with at the reunion. Wacky!
Anyway, who were YOU in high school?
