Yeah, but whats the point of trying to imitate popular people if you aren't actually like them? To me, that sounds like being the typical fake teenager. I'm completely honest with my geekiness, I'm actually proud of it. I feel smarter than the rest of the kids, but I also feel like I'm too good for them. >.<My main friends are one grade above me.....this isn't really a problem until I hit my last year of high school....where they will be gone. I'm most of my classes, I have like 1 person I could talk to, but they are usually like the insanely nerdy type.....I am too....but I learned not to show it.
I changed my style because I was very out of touch with the current fashion. I would wear ugly all black clothing every day and I eventually got a reputation.....So before it was too late, I did a complete overhaul of my style and it actually caught the attention of some people.
Don't worry... you did help me...I take everybodies comment to heart and try to use it.
As for you, you said you were very nerdy....now I am like that too...I could honestly have an 8 hour conversation about what type of graphics card is best for a computer....or what is better... Mac or pc.
But what I recently learned was to keep all of that to myself... I recently started to force myself to listen to like the popular kids and kind of immitate their conversation topics.....I didn't make many friends yet, but I know I'm getting peoples attention (in a positive way).....hope I helped
