in the cool group at school?
but I was never really in. But I wasn't the hanger-on or anything. They usually invited me around because I was good at taking the piss out of the weaker members. But I was ultimately disposable.
Like going out and shopping and having sex.
As a leisure activity? It serves a purpose, but not as a leisure activity. They'd spend whole weekends doing it.
and comics, does that count?
It has to be for clothes and coffee.
yes, then i fell out with a few people and BAM! see the backlash... kinda like DiS really
although I never got beat up. Score!
But I got kicked out!
briefly. I smoked a joint and thought about flinging myself off a bridge age 15. It wasn't really *that* cool.
GIVE ME YOUR WEED and I can practice more!
only got a sugar cube in the freezer ;)
wouldn't have smoked weed, imo. You're thinking of the cooler section of the outsiders, who were still uncool in the end.
I changed schools when I was 15 and instead of smoking behind the bikesheds in the breaks, there was a gang of about 50 kids all skinning up.
They WERE the cool kids. Their parents usually lived in massive houses too.
than football cool?
Umm, help me out here?
Let's just call this sub-conversation off early.
Well, they weren't like the top footballer / cheerleaders club type cool, if that helps.
If you mean the cool group in retrospect who formed a gang called the MBBYT who worshipped an electrical box and left it offerings of frozen food, bought at the co-op, then YES.
buy painting overalls then run about glasgow city centre BLOWING PEOPLE'S MINDS with our ANTICS. Good times.
that he went round the school with me surveying people about them. They unanimously said Radiohead were crap and that my friend's favourite band, "dead star assembly" were better.
I was a god amongst men.
Your group sounded fun!
Yeah thats right, good ole self-referntial me. The BYT was a proper young team based in "briggy", but we decided that the true heart of briggy was an electricity box about a mile out of briggy, and so we formed the "Misplaced briggy-border young team". We left it offerings of "Pork faggots" (Hilarious aged 14) and prayed to it on our knees.
that was when my descent into irony started. I'm in so deep i'm not even sure if i'm being serious now. god help me.
But I feel I would regret it later.
it was pretty cool.
'cause I'm not in their young team. I'm just an imposter.
You're English, therefore "Poof".
Ask anybody Scottish. All english people are homosexual. This is just a fact.
Every St Andrews' day we send down a couple thousand of our guys to inseminate you all. Ever wondered why so many englishmen are born on september 30th, or thereabouts? NINE MONTHS ON FROM ST ANDREWS DAY
SHOCKING REVELATIONS INSIDE
in our year there were sort of two main factions: the cool people (attractive girls and boys good at sport) and the nerds/ugly people/smelly people/people with no friends. Then there were little sub-groups. I was in the people who do quite well but fanny around, know some hard people and listen to metal sub-group so was fortunately acceptable to both major factions without really being part of either. Kind of like the mutants in Command and Conquer.
except I didn't listen to metal. Sorry.
but with 'plays warhammer 40,000 every Friday night at Brett's house because he has a big table and all the scenery and his mum makes us nice food.'
Though I did see some of them in Guildford a while back and my gf at the time was hotter than theirs so HAHA I WIN
I bumped into one of the cool kid ex-boyfriends about three years after he dumped me, and he looked minging.
Such a satisfying feeling.
More the cool group where we all smoked and had sex and people were scared of us.
And there's been a great deal of sex talk on here recently.
I don't see how this is relevant.
but it's got me excited.
does that make you want me more?
I was in the toilet.
I was probably on the second-bottom rung of the school social ladder - not a complete leper but not really the kind of person anyone with serious status would choose to hang around with. Never really had any problem with the 'in' crowd, mind.
a cool group at school
im not in the weird groups though.
does that make me in the cool group?
It just means the cool group aren't telling you they exist.
i was friends with a lot of the people in the cool group at one point, but usually it was before they were in the cool group. i was pretty unpopular
/in the group of smart kids. Later I gravitated towards arty types.
I knew loads of guys interested in music and stuff, so we'd sit around and talk about Tool and Thursday sometimes. ROFL.
i'm clearly amazing :P
erm, also who the fuck cares?!
pretty solid evidence that you weren't in the cool group and it still hurts?
the fact that i dont give a shit clearly means i was, and therefore don't give one.
some people fucked me off evidently.
does that pay?
beats stripping. x
i'll check with gays mum
I was in what was, I guess, the 'cool group' at school - i.e. the most socially adept (mainly when it comes to the opposite sex)/considered attractive/able to sway others' opinions. However, nothing is cooler than someone who knows their own mind and falls under no one else's influence and that's something that only growing up (and out of the school environment) can make you see.
Erm....that was quite serious, wasn't it?
do you know your own mind and don't get influenced by other people? You're the king of cool :)
Being honest I was like that when younger, not so much now.
I WAS the king or cool (In your mind).
you've lost your mind and you're easily influenced by others?
I'm not saying that when I was younger I was a complete individual and am now a drone.
It's probably that I've never been in a social group as big as mine now. It could be that I'm not more influenced I've just found more people like me.
and was probably one of only a couple a people in my year who could move pretty easily amongst most people from the 'cool' people to the 'social outcasts' and have at least a friend or two in each group.
Certainly I tended to get invited to most of the 'cool group' social events and often went along and was reasonably at ease but I don't think I ever by any means was regarded as cool myself. But I did managed to pull off being regarded as likably eccentric rather than downright weird.
At school I was pretty much the same as well.
I just hung out with a small group of people who no-one really noticed (although people tended to know who I was 'cos I did a lot of drama and stuff) but then when I turned 15 some of the 'cool' kids in my class took an interest in me for whatever reason and started getting me invited to parties after which I started getting more confident and then by the time I finished year 11 I was confident enough to come across as I describe above.
you're just like me.
it wasn't a very adept school
It wasn't til I learnt guitar myself a couple of years later that I realised how piss easy it really was...
Smells Like Teen Spirit
Under The Bridge (just the beginning)
Come As You Are (just the riff)
and as a self-respecting 14-year old axe hero, you NEVER EVER EVER show ANYONE how to play ANY of these things EVER. Keep them in their non-girl-impressing box!
and badminton club. but I also played football with the cool kids, which led to them taking the mick out of me for being uncool, and simultaneously meant a lot of distrust from the geeks.
I also played hockey though. I wasn't that bad either. Our goalie really sucked though. Like sucked hilariously. He was a walking disaster.
But I think everyone was pretty unsure of how to treat me. I possibly came across as a little arrogant...
I miss school.
then everyone got cooler and i didnt :(
my friends from Year 10 onwards were basically the 'smart' kids - not uncool but not in the 'parties and sex' crowd. Most of my friends weren't really geeky or arty though, most of them weren't that into music and the most common group activity was playing football.
Were the real fucking twats, walking around in their reebok classics, gelled hair, having sex with people older than them (the girls, at least) and being "mates" with the hard kids as it validated them.
Our group was sound, just average teenagers finding music/sex/drugs/drink. I doubt anyone thought we were cool, but we were alright
I wish I'd pursued my interests in high school instead of letting myself be distracted/overwhelmed by home stuff--I don't know which way that would have put me. Lots of the people who were in things like drama, art, etc, things that might make them uncool at other schools actually would put them as cool at my school. Like the achievey kids in any area usually would fall under cool. I think only like chess club and AV club and maybe some other things I'm not aware of (I went to a really big school) were uncool activities.
in hindsight, i'm oddly glad about this
Nobody told me until I'd left.
i was a pretty unremarkable, quiet kid who didn't annoy anyone, didn't try at schoolwork or cause any trouble.
