Have you ever wondered about what makes kids popular / geeks? Over the last 8 years of my school life I've basically "Studied" peoples' emotions for my senior project. I've basically learned the ends and outs and think I should publish my finding on newgrounds. Please don't be to much a critic I'm just sharing with you my own thoughts and opinions... no critizing needed.
Have you ever heard the saying "Like father, like son."? Well this saying is almost exact in this world. Let's say your dad was popular in school, he had all the girls he wanted, got terrible grades, and yet still managed to get by and go to college. You're probably going to end up being the same.
What brought me to myself saying that is because I have this friend named Joel. Joel has a brother that's about 2 grades above him. There was this girl in my class that he like named Jessica. This was back in about 6th grade when GF and BF was still new to everyone. Well Jessica had and older brother too. I found out about in a week that their brothers were in the same grade. Neither Jessica nor Joel were too popular so I figured in my own brain these exact thoughts:
"I bet you since neither of them are popular... that you would probably mean that their older brothers aren't popular either. Therefore if they weren't popular they run a risk of being friends."
Turns out... they were friends. Ever since I learned that... I've been studying how popularity works. To test out my theory of how to be "popular" I enrolled in an Early College to see if I could become popular by wearing the right clothes and acting like an ass but being nice at times. Guess what, it worked. I became popular with a sh** load of friends but, I wasn't happy and I missed my old friends back at the other school. I guess being popular has its ups and downs. In the meantime though, it's fun being popular :)
In another instance one of the parents could've been popular in school and the other one might not have been as popular. To determine whether the child is popular pertains to who they hang out the most with.
Now above me in that paragraph was about popularity... not "clicks". Clicks is a whole different story that I'll prob type up some paragraphs next week about.
