When I was a freshman, everybody tried to tell me the importance of immediately picking my "clique." For the those of you not yet in High School, it's pronounced "click" and it means a group or set of people with a common interest. Our first day of freshman year, Abby and I identified some of most obvious cliques:
The Band Geeks
Once you identify yourself with one of these groups, it's hard to switch. So I decided to steer clear all together and develop friendships with everyone. I have friends in band, friends in football, friends who play chess, friends who dance, friends who wouldn't be caught dead dancing...friends who should rethink a few of their favorite dance moves because of how ridiculous they look doing them (that means you, Abby).
I guess I'm just not interested in taking sides. I like staying neutral.
Someday, that's all gonna pay off.
