I was friends with everyone. We had what we called “the stage” and everyone from cheerleaders to science club hung out there. there were obvious inner cliques, but we were all easy going on the stage, it was for everyone.
Who I was in high school was part of the creative circle – writing, theater, chorus.
I was a total band nerd. I didn’t really fit in with the cool crowd, but I was okay with that. I enjoyed being able to express myself without fear of being kicked out of my circle of friends… I feel so bad for those who felt awful during those years. At least they are in the past… 🙂
