When you're up, successful and life is treating you well, your friends know who you are. When you're down and out, you know who your friends are. I do not know who wrote this but I've used the quotation numerous times. Don't burn your bridges; you may need them to come back from Pleasure Island.
Ooh! I love that saying! I'm stealing it . . .
They all look like cool kids to me lol. Surely with your creative mind you could have done something to that rock to make it not so attractive to the 'cool' ones.
Hmmm . . . dynamite?
I was thinking more a load of stuff from that feed lot.
Hee Hee!! I like how your mind works, Delores!!!
That was a hard lesson. But a good one. Some of the "cool" kids I knew grew up to have the most problems.
There is a lot of pressure to being 'cool'. Looking back, I'm glad I got out when I did!
So very true! My place in society was in high school. I was a "farm kid", while the cool kids were "town kids". Their dads had businesses and money. But, I also had lots of brains, so I hung out with "smart girls", who were good to hang and talk.
Yep. Farm girl here, too. I liked hanging out with the 'smart' girls. They also helped me with my homework.
I used to wish I was one of the cool kids and on a much deeper lever I desperately wanted to be "smart". One of those kids who got A+ grades and understood things like trigonometry. I didn't even understand algebra. Looking back now, I'm glad I stuck with being just me, not at all cool, but I still wish I was smarter.
I agree. I'm glad I stuck with being me. My Mom used to sing a song that always ended with the words, "I would rather be . . . Me. Me. Me!"
