the whole system's a joke
(he's a pilot now, fyi)
who'd spend all his lunch breaks in the computer room, drawing pictures of guns.
I probably fought above my level because of being good enough for the A team in football gaining me a bit of respect that I wouldn't otherwise have had. Shall we say a 6?
i had a lot going against me: i was gangly, the class swot (got the best results in the year), rubbish at sports and even worse with girls. On paper, a 2 at best.
BUT i got on okay as a result of (a) not being a dick about being clever, (b) being generally "nice" to people in a school where people were generally horrible to each other and (c) having a reasonable supply of football magazines. Looking back, yeah I think I was about bang in the middle. so yeah, 5
10 is obviously most popular
Is 0 the smelly kid in handmedowns who never actually spoke to anyone and is 10 the first girl to get breasts?
10 is the most popular; 0 is the least popular.
It depends. Most of my year were literally utter wankers. Happy hardcore, r'n'b listening, twats. Snobs, skanks or both. When Kurt Cobain died I went into scholl saying "oh shit, Kurt Cobain died, this is fucking awful" and literally everyone I told said "who's Kurt Cobain". Apart from a handful of friends I was on a completely different page mentally to everyone else. And I was pretty skinny and not that tall so I got no respect. BUT I WANTED NONE. FUCK YOU ALL.
and then laugh at c_c_b
I'll just say that I was made Class Captain at age 12 and leave it at that
A strong bridging of the gap between the 'quiet intelligent lot' and the 'rowdy cool lot'. Had good ties to both camps with likeable persona and ability to make popular kids laugh. Still most definitely, however, a mediocre presence in the schoolyard with neither the 'cool kids' or the 'losers' feeling that I was "one of them".
Extra marks lobbed off for being absolutely no use around girls.
After I won that I was drowning in female hand to hold, like a Disney G-rated Nikki Sixx
I can just imagine a 12-year-old Lucien strutting round the schoolyard with a Captain's hat, a bit of jailbate on his arm, and hoards of children in hot pursuit of his "Crispy Golden Crumb".
"It's alright kids... I'm the Captain"
I can't remember exactly how I saw in my election but suspect I went for a celebratory touch-up of my undercut
They didn't have anything like at at my school. All I wore on my lapels were the proud scars of the comprehensive school system.
*draws B====D on Royter's back*
It tapers at the end
because I'll say "8" and then some cool kids from school who I thought liked me will see it and come and post on here about how they were only pretending to like me and how everyone laughed at me and called me a 'bender' behind my back.
I guess you don't remember...
I realised after it was only in the long version of the single.
^bullied at school.
This would have been better as a non-^this thread, I think.
I wasn't one of the coolest kids, but I was pretty well-liked by every group in the year.
I was popular amongst my friends (I used to be really funny and silly and a "grunger") but pretty much everyone else disliked me.
If I understand childhood psychology as well as I think I do, this means the other kids NEVER took the piss ever again, right?
and then attempting a coup de grace with a bit of gymnastics.
For a brief moment, i was upper 7s, maybe even flirting with an 8. Halcyon days.
They were definitely the indie Nikes – not as mainstream as the top end 180s or Jordans, but not yer standard Airs either – I was the only person in the year that had them, bought when I went to Florida on holiday.
I was home-schooled as well.
That's good stuff.
Did your parents bully you?!
There will be no encore
I nodded here but you probably didn't see that
such a miserable bunch, eh ccb?
Everyone always wanted to sit next to me in junior school because I had a Sony Walkman and made the best tapes. That's all I've got.
They were my bestest friends at school.
And sometimes skipped lessons to do the same. I basically lived in the library towards the end. But that was my choice, I had plenty of friends. I'd probably say 6.
Actually I went to school with Kevin Perry so maybe you should ask him...
Owing to a very good girls:boys ratio at sixth form, I was cool as fuck. I wouldn't have been said talking to any of you.
I really hope that happened. Can't believe I never did that. I would have RULED.
Or got the shit kicked out of me.
I've also seen plenty of people wearing this kind of thing 'ironically' at gigs by most of the bands we danced to the other week in that pub in Camden.
i wasn't popular, i chose not to be friends with them when i moved schools.
i wasn't unpopular either, just good friends with people i was friends with. i got more popular when i stopped being fat though, i would say i was a 7 after that.
I was a bit meh really. Started off nerdy but got slightly cooler over time and blended in. Didn't really get on with the popular kids but I got invited to all the big nights out. I had 2 girlfriends during my time at school and was a bit shit at sports, didn't get picked last though.
I was that kid that, if you were told you had to do something in groups, I would be praying for the teacher to tell us what groups we were in. Because otherwise I would have to spend all lesson walking around asking to be in people's groups, and them turning me down, until eventually the teacher had to intervene and force someone to have me in their group reluctantly.
Secondary school - 6.5
College - 5
Uni - Hard to say i reckon about a 7 as i have some friends
I wasn't popular at all in primary school, because I was much younger than everyone else in my year group by 1-2 years, and also because I was an Odd Child.
In secondary school I was probably a 3/10- popular amongst the nerdy kids in my music class or debating club, and popular amongst my fellow hockey girls, but otherwise totaly unpopoular and picked upon. Suddenly became massvely popular on a TEN scale round about year 4, suspiciously also around the time I grew breasts. Teenagers are so fickle.
as I did enjoy school, and I had lots of friends, and I didn't seem to get bullied like all you indie mifflers. I give myself an 8.
I've 'this-ed' it now.
i meant that this thread was suitable for popular kids like you, hopeless cases like lion king shucks, and the rest of us in between!
Primary/Junior - 10
Secondary - 7
College - 4
Uni - 5
I was fucking cool when I was younger. it was easier back then when social standing hinged on one's knowledge of pokemon.
i guess. i was a swot and a bit uncool, but the fact that:
- i had a girlfriend continuously from 3rd year helped
- i was "funny"
- i knew music
- i play football a lot better than some in my year did, and more often
- i was friendly with the teachers but not brown nosingly so
- i had a few nedish friends that kept the cool factor how
anyone give a shit?
Primary school two - 0. i literally had no friends. i spent every break and lunchtime for 2 terms hiding in the toilets.
Primary school three - 5. The teachers really didn't like me there, as a result people wanted to be my friend, but they were mostly mongs
Middle School- 2. Teachers daughter, bit of a nerd, friends with absolute mongs (some of whom i'm still really good friends with now and love to pieces)
High school one- 6. I liked indie music and often went to gigs on the mainland (the height of cool when at 14/15). Most of the popular boys were in my french set, sometimes they'd take the time to talk to me out of lessons.
High School two- 1 everyone thought i was a fucking weirdo and the only people who would talk to me were fellow smokers.
High School three- 6. no-one disliked me, i had a good group of friends.
Year 11 = 8
Years 12 & 13 = 9.5
Put that in your pipe and smoke it
get out while you can.
But yes, DiS can be fairly vicious when it comes to friendly people.
the worst that girls get on here are dodgy pm's.
weird enough to attract the arty/photography crowd, but not weird enough to get the shit beaten out of me. plus, my group of friends had a name. a bit like a biker gang that mostly dealt with super smash bros and wham bars.
people seemed to want to friends didnt have to make any effort, I think this had a bad effect as it meant by the time I started secondary school with its more structured social hierachy I had no idea how to actually make friends so i'd say about a 5, kinda got ok by year 10. 6th form onwards a steady decline, lost more friends than I made, i'd say a 3. University, terrible literally didn't speak to anyone for three years, 0.
I didn't have cool clothes like an eclipse jacket or spliffy jeans, and had rubbish hair.
On the other hand, that was balanced out a bit by being able to make people laugh, and being good at basketball.
