Everyone else was hanging out with their friends from eighth grade. I don't know anyone. And it's not as simple as "make new friends." I only want real friends. I've had six of those in my lifetime. Two who've moved away, one who quit taekwondo, and the other three currently work at TKD with me (who are the best friends I could ask for). So I was alone and friendless today. It might be that way for the entire school year. :/
Believe me, I looked for friends. But I didn't find any. All the other girls look and act and dress EXACTLY THE SAME, and they're always on their phones and freak out over little things that don't matter. And did I mention they're extremely SENSITIVE? To EVERYTHING? "Ow, I fell, that hurt! -cry cry cry-" AND IT'S ONLY A LITTLE BRUISE??? Girl, don't even get me started on how much pain I put up with on a regular basis! Bruises heal, blood clots, there's no need to cry about it! Certainly not a tiny little bruise!
They're ALL popular girls now, and I'm just the awkward, clumsy taekwondo girl with a short ponytail who wears athletic clothes instead of the "trendy" clothes everyone else spends hundreds of dollars on. I work for a martial arts franchise and I do taekwondo training instead of sitting around texting people or whatever. I buy my own stuff with my own money that I earn from working - my parents don't buy me the newest iPhone or expensive makeup or whatever. So I don't fit in. I'm nothing like everyone else.
There were a few girls with boyfriends too - and trust me, I'll never be that lucky. I have yet to find a taekwondo boy. :/
So I have a lot of confidence for the new school year. I get to be the outcast again. Yay. :/
