Cliques are small exclusive friends that share common traits or interests, (i.e. music, dress, and sports.) There are usually a number of different cliques among teens. The popular groups, also known as jocks, preps, and cheerleaders are often viewed as the most attractive group by Hollywood standards, and seen as mainstream airheads by other groups. The jocks tend to be those star athletes that walk around school with their cocky attitudes and thinking that their grades do not matter, because they will be going to college on an athletic scholarship anyway.
People say she is some sort of goddess sent from heaven. Her hair is so perfect and straight, her style is always new and fresh, she wins everything she runs for, like being the student council president three years in a row and she has the perfect figure every female would want, but in the fashion world her beauty and smarts were not enough. Ashley was 5’10” and weighted 145 pounds. She was not
People believe the quarterback is dating the captain of the cheerleading squad and they are rich, stuck up, students and many students’ want to be them because of their looks and social status. Jocks are really just high school students who are trying to earn scholarships and make their way to college. In college the “jock” stereotype isn’t really important or even mentioned at all. Some student’s could care less if Billy Bob was dating Susanna. When becoming a college student, maturity in an individual increases.
I would like to propose a toast to my best friend Joy Kentish. For those of you that don’t know Joy and I have been best friends for about 7 years. We met our 10th grade year in high school at Tampa Bay technical High School. We were in drivers ed together and I was so nervous because it was my first time driving and we were partners. She told me to relax and just have fun but not too much fun.
This is a common thought felt by most female teenagers as celebrities are idolised and praised for the glamorous lifestyle they lead. Who wouldn’t want that? In reality it is not at all glamorous. Ode to live a simple life, how we wish we could relive our youth with the knowledge we have now, the ability to not compare ourselves to others. “Dear Diary” by MikelWJ is a powerful song that so perfectly outlines the tormented life of a teenager.
In the novel 'Before I fall', the protagonist Samantha Kingston portrays the female voice on many different levels, primarily through situations that she experiences. Sam conveys the perfect teen pitch by being one of the most popular girls at school, although that soon changes. Initially, Sam relates to the reader how when she gets out of school her and her friends will look back and know that they 'did everything right'. However, her belief soon changes as she
Being social and popular was extremely important to a young lady during this time. Fitzgerald even stated, “No matter how beautiful or brilliant a girl may be, the reputation of not being frequently cut in on makes her position at a dance unfortunate.” These times were every girl for herself. Bernice is from a wealthy family in Eau Claire and she is going to visit her cousin Marjorie Harvey for the summer. Fitzgerald illustrates Bernice, the main character, as being an attractive young lady; however, not so much as Marjorie. Bernice was described as being pretty and having dark hair but a lame-duck.
Competing in the area all the friends were certainly different but we had more similarities to focus on our love for the sport. The diversity mix was pretty simple growing up until joining the military. My military career started out with a bus ride from the St. Louis airport to Fort Lenard wood MO. I feel asleep leaning on the girl sharing the seat with me to my surprise she was staring at me like I had a disease when I awoke. This
Furthermore, Deborah Tannen’s article about “marked” women sheds more light on the popularity frame because the girls are purposely making decisions about themselves that present them as popular, nerdy, or even “sluttish.” There are three scenes that demonstrate this claim well and the perception of popularity and its traits are explained well in the scholarly journal. The first scene takes place during the annual winter talent show that the high school has. The whole student body is attending and four of the main characters are up on stage performing their talent. The four characters are all female and it is known and obvious that these girls are the most popular in their grade. They are dressed in scantily clad Christmas attire and singing a song.
I never let any of these factors hinder me from becoming an A/B honor roll student or joining an organization I was interested in. Becoming a recipient of this award would make the thought of college much easier for both my mother and I financially. Memorable moments throughout my high school years will always come from being a cheerleader at Orangeburg Wilkinson High for four years. Being a cheerleader always required dedication, sacrifices, hard work and most of all leadership abilities. There was always moments when I had to step up my senior year and live up to my title as being co-captain.
