undefined   Prologue:

"Cool" its a word we use for something that's popular or people who are popular. It can be something really good or something really bad. Its a word that is defined by the way that the people use it. But ill tell you a little back story on why I decided to write this blog.

Main:

I was going through the pmc forums and I came across a post about a kid who was saying that it's so hard to make friends, unless you are the cool kid or you act like the popular kid in school. This hit home for me and it made me ask the question why. Sadly this is a common thing in schools across the world. But this problem goes far beyond this kid posting on pmc. I feel that this problem will ultimately make or break the world. It boils down to peer pressure and the effect it has on young and old people alike. Alot of people have the popular nike shoes so I need to. In the end this can go a lot further than a pair of shoes. To me it looks like this problem is heading in the direction of the right to express opinions. As a quote from a good star trek episode goes "when the indevidual's rights are only valid when they agree with the group is when society will fall. For that is the most dangerous thing to the human race". If only these people could see that the're special. That they were cool in their way. I mean the word cool itself is so relative.

Epilogue:

The direction these types of feelings are going is quite bad and in the end only we can stop them. So if you see a neighbor feeling down or just see a neighbor. Remind them that they are special and that the only thing they have to be is themselves.


Thanks for reading I hope you like my latest blog

"it's so hard to make friends, unless you are the cool kid "

Sadly as you mention it's true. And what makes this even more sad is that there is two ways (most likely more) ways to become the "Cool Kid"


1: Be a jerk to everyone around you. Act like you got all the cool stuff even though your mom paid it all.


2: Be the strongest, or the sexiest. For girls it would be the "Sexy" option and "Strongest" for the boys. Though I don't think people should try to become "Sexy" or "Strong" just to become popular. All girls are "Sexy" in their own way, and maybe you aren't the "Cool kid" in school but when you leave school you'll find someone who loves you (My parents told me that... ... ... ...)

And being the strongest? Well... I know a lot of boys are like: "I want a Six-pack so that I can see what all the girls in ma class got in their panties" or close to that most likely...
But are you serius? That's all you want to train for? For a guy like me who trains Parkour close to everyday it's pointless to me why you want mucle's if you don't want to use them. (Unless your a manly model of course)

In my school all the 'cool kids' are either idiots, assholes (excuse my language) or both, so I wouldn't want to be part of it anyway. :P

Very True, but i afraid it wont change, you can say one thing online, but you will say another in real life.
Yes, I hope you are right with that one.
Well said. All of the "cool" things seem quite boring/really dumb to me. I'd much rather be myself than always trying to get popular.

EDIT: Congrats on the pop reel! :D
thanks i cant beleve it POP REAL

I went through secondary school majoritily by myself becase i refused to conform, it let to teacher blackmailing me into seeing the councellor and being shunned by the rest of my year. Being in an all girls scool never helped as the only social interaction they understood was from magazines. I wasnt different for the sake of being different i just wanted to be me. 
A lot of ppeople in schools are different for the sake of being different.. the most popular example being hipsters and scenes. 
But after leaving and finding my own two feet i felt i had a better chance in life, because i wasnt following others i had given myself life skills in leading and thinking for myself. So in the end i think its good not to be the same... but its also not good to be different for the sake of it.
i agree completely

If I am going to be honest, the rather large wall of text scared me when I came into this blog, and I wasn't sure whether I would make it through - fear not, I did though! 

The topic is a good one, highly original and this is obviously an intelligent response, but I think you could do no wrong with a little more refined presentation, with 'titles', 'subtitles, 'colour', 'pictures' and the like. 

Other than that and a few grammatical (for example: the captilization of words is a little erratic) tweaks, this blog shows a lot of potential.
thanks. ill take your sugestions to hart. Iv always hated grammar and im glad it wasent to bad.

Tip: Run it through Mircosoft word or ask a friend who has it to. Microsoft word will show you the grammar and caps problem and how to fix it.
ok all try that thanks
