Loner: the New Loser
Wed, May 18 § 5 Comments
Me. Sitting here. Now. Alone. Feeling like a Lonely Loser because everyone else is having fun with their friends somewhere while I’m here at home not enjoying the sun and growing old. Sigh.
Students get a day off early today, and I got a nonexistent invitation as Friend #1 basically dumped me to go somewhere with her other friends. I asked Friend #2 if she wanted to hang out but she had an orthodontist appointment. And no, I didn’t have a chance to ask a Friend #3, but I’m sure they’re busy anyway.
So here I am being sappy and mellow about my missed opportunity feeling like a crab.
Though when you think about it, how do people deal with being lonely? (Honestly I think it’s awkward and makes me squirm a little.) How do people get away from doing the “uncool” things? Would being “cool” necessarily help you gain respect? Maybe I just need to be more confident and optimistic. Yes that’s it. See, now I have two extra hours to finish school work, make blog posts, or watch a movie! *Nods in triumph.*
UPDATE: The drawing I made in my two free hours. (A real moment that happened after school ended today.)
