"Being popular is a weird concept. In high school, popularity is so much about going to the right parties and hanging out with the in crowd and looking a certain way. And probably for the first month of high school, I cared about looking good everyday—but then I just didn’t care anymore because I realized there was no one I needed to impress. I went to a big public school with a lot of people, and I had a small group of friends who I was comfortable with. I wanted to hang out with people who are good and honest. If popular means being one of the girls who are obsessed with looking good all the time and having lots of boys like them, I don’t want to hang out with those people. That’s being immature and stupid. Why would anyone want to isolate themselves from people who you could potentially learn something from and be friends with? I think cliques are ridiculous."
