Being /*In' The /*Out'Crowd This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   It's not a very good feeling, sometimes you feel like you have no friends at all, or all the friends you have aren't good enough.

Most kids want to be in the popular group of kids. Or at least, be friends with some kids in it, like me. But everyone judges everyone else by the way they dress, not by how nice they are. None of the popular kids like me because my clothes aren't good enough.

If everyone judged you on your kindness, I'd have a lot of friends. Sometimes I get upset because I'm not in the popular group, but when I come to my senses, I realize that it's usually the popular kids who start taking drugs, drinking, smoking, etc ... just because they want to act Acool'. But anyone who has anything to do with drugs is no friend of mine, but still, sometimes, I can't help wanting to be in their group. They always look like they're having so much fun. I just don't know what to do. n
