After school last week I was hanging out with a group of kids from my sixth period chemistry that I hadn’t talk to much over the course of the semester and they were the coolest kids to talk to, they were all really close friends and they just took me in right away. We laughed so much that it made my stomach hurt and I felt happy. After they left, my group of friends came in and they were like “Why were you hanging out with those nerds?” and I immediately made a scenario in my head were I would finally tell them that They’ve turned into complete douchebags and I wanted to switch to a new group, but I didn’t and I just responded by saying ” There was no one else to talk to.” but that was a lie and they were many other people to talk to but everyone else just seemed to care too much about who they hang out with or who they talk to and there was something about that group of “nerds” , maybe I had more in common with them than I do with my actual friends, but I brushed that idea away hoping I was just over thinking things. Maybe I am as selfish as the other kids who would risk being happy in order to fit in into some non existing social hierarchy or maybe I’m too scared to realize the children I grew up with are no longer the kids I swore I would be friends with until the end. I guess forever is not as long as we think.
