This is a topic designed to talk about your school popularity. I'm unpopular, very smart, and no girls like me except one.... and everyone hates her even more than me. AND THAT'S ALOT! :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :x
Popularity, though a somewhat popular (ha ha) way of classifying people, is an awful system to use. Popularity is mainly based on a person's appearance, as well as who they are friends with (and their appearance, and so on and so forth), which truly isn't what matters. Though it is used as a worldwide ranking system for students, whether in elementary school or university or anything in between, it is a horrid, I repeat: horrid, way of grouping-off people into ranks. It forces people to exclude others they may (or may not) like (or dislike) and who could become a good friend; it makes fights and ruins peoples' lives, as well as makes others a heaven-hell (or love-hate) life.
I personally believe that popularity shouldn't be discussed, nor used, and do not use it myself. I am who I am, you are who you are, and we are friends with who we want to be. We shouldn't be judged at all, and definitely not by the way we look, or who we talk to. You truly don't know someone's "popularity" until you sit down and talk with them -- find out who they really are -- and then popularity seems like a mere poorly advertised ranking system, which it is.
Nerds, jocks, the "popular kids' group", they all don't matter. It's what's on the inside, and not the outside that truly matters.
So, I urge you not to rank others, whether they're already classified as "better" or "worse" then yourself, based on what others say. That's simply you falling into the never-changing crowd of those who have nothing better to do then to pick on others who are different. I urge you to not judge, but base your opinions of someone one who they truly are, not their popularity status.
