The Life and Times of a 500 Pound Woman.
When I hear about the popular kids it always makes me think of this song called "Show Biz Kids" Something about while the poor people sleeping with a shade on the light while the poor people sleeping all the stars come out at night. That killer slide is "Rick Derringer" (if you know who he is)It goes on about the Show business kids making movies of themselves you know they don't give a f*** about any body else
It says it all, while the poor people sleeping, coming out at night to show off, though we live in a show biz society with facebook. It occurred to me the other day people are scripting and showing off lives in the best light maybe doing stuff to show off the life on Facebook.
I don't think I put the link in that comment.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COJXQatf9c0
Most of them had little or no personality...especially the popular jock type guys!
I agree. I remember being bored to tears. They were all the same. It was a warm day today and I went downtown to our small resort town and everyone was dresses the same. It freaked me out. All the women had tight jeans on from 70-20 and these just below the knee boots on. I didn't know leather boots had become such a thing...[no snow on ground today] The rich ones show off their high pedigree dogs and they had the boots and jeans on [No I don't fit well into this area] The deadness of personality I saw in high school among the jocks and preps continued.
Yeah there is a FB site that is for the people from my hometown. Nothing has changed.
Nothing has changed either. The ones who had money then and showed off still do. Its hard for me to see what a "success" so many made of themselves. Everyone seems to have become a rich lawyer or accountant from two neighborhoods I grew up in on the east coast. I think I would have ended up a happier person if I grew up among people of my same social class or lets just say the social class planned for me.
if you are lumped in with everyone else's rejects in high school, that will NOT change in the "real" world. everyone lied to me; now they can spout lies and put on a ritualised act around my grave.
I agree, I got lumped in with the "rejects" too. It occured to me how much different many of my classmates lives really were when I befriended a few "nice" ones on Facebook. Many were married by their early 20s in stable working class middle class homes not starving out of milk crates. Most married far younger, they had so many opportunities. My family was "well off" too but it didn't matter. I was mostly getting a very few "project" kids to befriend me while the country club set in my neighborhood ignored me for what I wore and what I lacked. Some told me later, the ones with consciences, they could tell something was wrong, I was so quiet and withdrawn in high school. I didn't break out in any "rebellion" until college. Yes I was lied too as well. If I ever had a kid I may have arranged it so they could avoid the high school pecking order and false socialization. It did a lot of damage to Aspie me. It was another place besides my family where my self esteem as assaulted on a daily basis.
Dear Peeps and Friends, two such popular kids went on from school and married quite "successfully." Thing is, it appears there was some moving in on someone else's relationship to make this happen, in both cases. Oh and they're both still married and living quite large. Used to be envious. Until i learned that living large might be Esau's (temporal) blessing. Ugh! If that be the case...oh NO! don't want that. By the way, i am not saying they are reprobate - that's not my call. Frankly, i'd be thrilled if i heard they both came to Christ, for real. Doesn't mean we'd be buddies. Too much difference between us.
I notice a few from my high school are on their second and third marriages. There are only a few poor people from my high school, it was an upper middle class place. Many are extremely wealthy and successful. I am sure I would come out as the poorest. Most have grandchildren now already too. I know I struggle with envy at times but its true, the bible has many verses about how living large is a temporal blessing. Some Christians when choosing for God will "lose out" in this world too. Yes it is God's call as to who is reprobate or not. Much of bible warns about how those with money feel they don't need God. I don't think I'd ever relate to people who had such different lives either.
Dear Peep,I've been doing research on my skin biopsy results, and found something that made me think of you, especially the hearing loss in conjunction with the lipodema/skin issues. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muckle%E2%80%93Wells_syndromeMuckle-Wells Syndrome.
Interesting....I do get chills a lot but always blame them on the body attempting cellulitis infections. My hearing loss is definitely diagnosed as sensorineural. My skin issues are awful.
