- The Chain
- October 27th, 2011
We are in a chain.
A chain of popularity.
Every school has one.
My school has one. Your school has one. Its all the same.
Mine however, seems odd.
There are three groups. The Popular. The Smart. The Unknown.
Let me just say first that my school is an all girls school. In fact, after our health break, we will meet some boys.
I don't want my school to have this interaction. Mainly because my crush will meet some horrible girl next year. (The batch my school picks is always a year older than us.)
I don't want him to meet some girl. I love him too much. Wait. Digressing.
Going back, The Popular are the people who either play sports or is in a relationship. May it be with a girl or with a guy.They also think they are too cool for school when in fact, they are just too stupid. And, since I am a Filipino, they are the ones who speak Filipino all the time. As in, ALL THE TIME.
The Smart, as said in the title, are smart. I am part of this group. I didn't choose to be here. I just am.
We are the people who actually study. We do assigned tasks. We are responsible. We are always officers of the class. (Every class has a set of officers) We never blur the lines between teacher and student. We are square.
The Unkown are the rest. People who are neither Popular nor Smart. They are NORMAL.
Why am I even writing this you ask? It is because I cannot stand for this any longer. I am sick and tired of all these titles set upon us. So what if you play sports? So what if you can answer some math problems? So what? I want us to all be equal because like I said, we are in a chain. There is a discrimination of sorts in school. Popular hates Smart. Smart hates Popular. Unknown hates both. Both are too busy hating each other to see Unknown. I hate this chain. I hate this way of life. I hate it.
