Skateboarding, listening to punk, ska, hardcore, and folk music and causing shenanigans. Nothing has changed.

kinda weird how the earth continues to spin on its axis and everything eventually dies even when you don't want it to dang

\ I started hanging out with the "popular" kids

you were one of THEM? you had to be a fake one, like a regular kid but more like an undercover agent doing an operative mission to see what those self obsessed little assholes did all day when they weren't dictating what was "cool" amongst barely pubscent micropeople.


Yeah, I wasn't really. They just like...let me sit at their table for the last 2/3 of 8th grade, like I said, I think because they felt bad about my dad. The next year when I started hanging out with the weird kids, I stopped being friends with most of them. Though there was a weird thing at band camp before senior year where all the seniors had a bonfire and were supposed to go around the circle and say things to each other and they all pretty much told me they respected me for being a badass and being who i wanted to be. And now I'm in touch with a few of them through Facebook and stuff. I dunno...popular in rural WV is a little different than popular elsewhere, I think. The kids who called my new friends and I names I distanced myself from and the people who didn't, I don't think are/were that bad.

When I was 13 I got really into AFI, which would later launch my exploration into other punk music and then somehow that would evolve into listening to a lot of post rock. I played percussion in the school band, but not of the other percussionists could read music so I always played the bells or marimba, which I was cool with. I also played piano a lot outside of school. My mom wouldn't let me go hang out with friends without adult supervision, so I missed out on a lot of hangouts outside of school. My mom finally let me go to my first dance and it was pretty mediocre so I didn't go to any more.

I was in Girl Scouts.

Oh! My friend, Justin, had a crush on me and wanted me to be his girlfriend, but I didn't really care for that. But our other friend kept bothering me to say yes to him while I was reading a book I was really into, so I finally gave in so she would let me keep reading my book. A year later Justin came out, and looking back on it I think our "relationship" happened because people were teasing him since they thought he was gay (he was, but he wasn't ready to come out yet. 13-year-olds can be assholes). We held hands in art class so this jerk at our table would stop giving him shit.

Man being 13 sucked so much.   I guess I still played baseball, that was cool.

Having said that, I'd rather listen to Papa Roach than GG Allin

i played ragnarok online for 4+ hours a day (iRO, private servers, then i started gming on a friend's server), and i talked to a lot of people online. i spent a lot of time in chat rooms, and i was on a few forums. i used to be able to have conversations with multiple people every day. besides those things i played a lot of other video games and other shit, i started getting into mogwai and the pillows a lot.

as far as physical stuff i was just going to school and stuff. i wore sweatpants every day and i had like some kind of aversion to pooping? i tried not to poop for like 10 months, so i always had to poop / smelled like poop. i also had acne and braces and bad breath, i was going through a shitty puberty i didn't want. i spent a lot of time online

completely forgot until i read this, but i was also playing soccer at school and i was the only not-super-preppy girl on the team. it was kinda rough for me socially, because (this is going to sound like bullshit but it isnt) all the preppy girls really hated me because i didn't give a shit about being popular and i was the only 7th (and then 8th) grader on the varsity team that started every single game of the season. also i was fat so they were extra pissed that i was basically a star player. they were dicks to me and all my actual friends were on the softball team. they tried to get me to play softball with them but soccer was just too important to me. womp womp

Hatmoose your experience is probably the closest to mine, and then you posted that photo, and you looked just like my best friend growing up did when he was 13.

momitnowme your experience is the most foreign and therefore most fascinating to me.


I really wanted to play basketball when I was in 8th grade but I'm very short and team sports scared me because I was so nervous to let everyone down. So it never happened. I have very small regrets about this.

if it makes you feel better, a year later i started hanging out with the punk kids, stopped showering as often (and eventually had a mohawk), got a guitar and skateboard (but never learned to skate, haha) and got called a dyke on a regular basis, haha.
