You can say in high school I made a questionable group of friends, people you would assume I WOULD NEVER hang out with! And to be honest, I wouldn’t if it weren’t for the fact that there is no one else to join!
They weren’t kidding when they said kids who go to my high school are extremely snobby. They really are. They always talk bad about every other school. Ugh, people. These people all need Jesus, and we’re in a catholic school.
Anyways, my “friends” ALWAYS, ALWAYS TALK BEHIND PEOPLE’S BACKS, AND SAY RUDE THINGS. It’s sickening! And they always talk about how hot a boy is. Um, they all look ugly eventually, so why care so much about those looks? Jeez, these two dimensional chicks.
Okay, time to say majority of my social life in high school up to this point.
First week I was basically a loser, I just sat with two other girls that said “hi” to me during the orientation. They’re REALLY quiet, haha.
Second week I met a friend in French class, let’s call her Mary. (Because I’m not revealing full names.) Mary was a really nice girl at first! There’s also this other girl in French class who has THE SAME NAME AS ME, Anna! Except her name is spelled with one n. So I’ll be calling her Ana. Ana’s pretty cool. She’s also in grade ten (she’s from South America and came to Canada halfway through the semester, so she’s taking those grade nine classes she missed.) Because of her, I can hang around with tenth graders, haha!
Anyways, third week in after the student council member was announced in the dance, Mary got a twerking buddy (not even joking) during the dance, and now they’re just BFFs. They bonded…. So quickly. I’m excluded most of the time. So I’m back to being alone majority of the time! Yay!
Thankfully, before the dance Mary introduced me to her group of friends, and there’s this one girl who I have A LOT in common with! Let’s just call her Dawn, because that’s her screen name. Dawn loves to draw, I love to draw, Dawn and I both enjoy classical music, etc! She’s also really nice! Unfortunately, we only have fitness class together, so we only talk in the cafeteria really… I also like how mature she is over the internet! We have added each other in some social media accounts.
So here’s where the story kicks in.
So recently Dawn has been eating lunch with other friends that she has, and this makes Mary pissed off or whatever. So Mary would start always talking behind Dawn’s back! Along with every other person who knows Dawn in elementary school. (Note that we don’t have a middle school here.)
“Dawn only talks about boys now!”
“Dawn isn’t Dawn anymore. She’s so violent!”
“Dawn is so rude!”
Okay, the problem with this is that THEY ALSO TALK ABOUT BOYS ALL OF THE TIME. And I find them more rude than Dawn. Sure I’ve only known Dawn for like two weeks, but she… Hasn’t done that at all. I’ve never seen her talk about guys, she’s only violent to jerks, and she’s pretty nice but blunt. (Like one time, she said that she hates eyeliner on Mary, but I guess she’s honest?)
I feel SO bad because at least what I know, Dawn isn’t just that. Maybe she’s just hiding a mask in front of me, but at least she doesn’t do that to me, haha. I’ve asked Dawn if they’re fighting or whatever (because at one point, Mary said that Dawn is mad at her) and she says that nothing is wrong. I’ve told her the truth that they’ve been talking behind her back, but she doesn’t seem to mind as much.
It’s kinda too soon to judge, but I find it morally wrong to talk bad behind your friend AT ALL! Y’know, friends fight, there will be something that you dislike, but at least talk to them about it! Don’t be spreading rumors that someone is a bad person. If I don’t like this trait, I’ll straight up tell my friend, not tell other people, “HEY THIS PERSON IS BLAH BLAH BLAH.”
If you want someone to be less of a bad person, tell them about it. Don’t gossip, because it just makes you as bad or even worse as a person.
