You know how it is, with life. A million good things happening around you all the time, and hardly any of them seem to waft their way in your direction. Shall I begin with the fact that people talk about me behind my back? I don't usually care, but recently my friends have been distant and I get the feeling that if I vanished from the face of the earth, nobody would care at all. Maybe they could be sick of it all as well. We're a weird group, and I'm no. 1 social reject out of all of us. Even the others are managing to make some "normal" friends. Then, there's the whole drama about my career dreams, which are NEVER going to come true. In assembly today, the head of senior school said that she bet in three years time one of us was going to call up and say they'd become a [insert job here]. That made me sad, because it could have been any of the other gals except me. I'm also very annoyed right now because people so love to take advantage of me. They suck up to me and say things like "OMG! I love you!" and "OMG! You're so smart and cool!", all these things they don't mean, just so they can try to glean some favour off me. Because I am pretty smart. They all want me to do their work for them. I don't. I learned ages ago that none of them ever uphold their end of the deal e.g. You do this for me, and I'll buy you this. It's just sad that the only people who appreciate me for my company are starting to forget all about me. Next year, both of my best friends at school are doing the SACE, while I'm doing the IB, and we're all going to be in different classes anyway. Just goes to show how freaking WEIRD I am. Most of the gals doing IB with me are either people I've been "friends" with before and who let me down, or the ultra-popular people who say things like "OMG! I love you!" and "OMG! You're so smart and cool!" Sometimes I think people take too much effort. I prefer to do things alone, but sometimes I get lonely. Talking to other people besides my friends makes me tired. I've been tired and sick this past week. Listen to me go.
