Hmm, my first blog, aye. Quite honestly, I'm not sure what to say. Maybe it's the uncertainty of who's going to be reading, or maybe there's so much I have to say I don't know where to begin... My money's on a combination of the two.
My jacket stinks of cigarette smoke from school today, not that I smoke at all (I honestly don't see the appeal in sucking up chemicals for whatever reason, I don't hold it against anyone, though), but alot of my friends, or, aquaintances do. My school is very lenient on smoking, seeing as it's only one floor on an office building and the majority of the 50 or so students that go there DO smoke, rules wouldn't really work anyway. There does seem to be this kind of trend that anyone sucked up into the "cool" crowd seems to start the habit, take for example this new girl at my school, who only came in as soon as last Thursday, exclaiming how weird she thought the school was and seemingly outraged most people smoked, lo and behold, she started that day. This has happened to a few people this year, mostly girls. Peer pressure is a sad, sad thing. Somehow, I've managed to resist it's lure, as have my friends, but I just feel sorry for those that are that weak they feel they have to change their lifestyle to feel like they fit in...
this kind of makes me glad I don't fit in, and I never have. Hey, I have my problems with it at times, like most human beings on this planet, but in the long run I'm glad to be who I am. To fit in with some teenage crowd these days, you seem to have to be either a "gangsta" kid or an "emo" type of some description, the "cool" genres of music seem to be either rap, techno, pop or heavy metal, with not all that much in-between. I personally am happy with my old Beatles tunes, my preference of RuneScape over W.o.W and casual clothing style of no real label. Most of the others may not be, but I am. :-)
Don't get me wrong, I'm not a total misfit, I do have my own little group of friends who support me and admire me for who I am, which I am so grateful for. We're all totally different people, but that doesn't matter because we all connect in one way - we don't fit in with the "cool" crowd.
Re-reading what I've written so far, I've realised how cliche the message in this blog is, but I guess if someone like me, a hater of cliches, ends up writing all this, it must hold some strong elements of truth.
Well, I guess I did end up finding something worthwhile to write about - without even planning it! ^_^
