Nothing kicks off the weekend like like a bit of resentment, Am I Right?! (j/k)
A few days ago, i was having a discussion with a friend about the the kids from our highschools. We went thru old pics, searched FB and took a look at how everyone was doing now. And a pattern emerged almost immediately.
The theme for that day..."Oh How The Mighty Have Fallen." Back then, people like me ( and probably people like you) were the weirdos;oreos;oddballs;blacksheeps;whitewashed muthaf&^^$. I straddled the fence between geek and acceptable most of my highschool career. Dont get me wrong, i was most definitely a weirdo, but the "cool" guys secretly wanted to f&**% me, so even though i took shit for not giving them the time of day, i never faced real bullying or anything. I'd say i was a solid 7 on the dweeb-o-meter fo sho tho.
But Now... the cools of yesterday seem to be the unoringinals of today. They've peaked early, and all of us ( who had to embrace our individuality as youngsters) seem to get the credit we deserve. When i wore "white clothes".... got my ears gauged...my septum pierced....any time someone stole a peek at my Ipod....I caught flack, but the new Rap meets Rock trend has changed things alot. I think we Afro Punks are "IN" right now....and its uber weird and quite creepy. I wonder if anyone else has experienced this.....
