I was once one of the most popular girls in class. Every birthday party held, I was invited and usually was there. I wore quite stylish clothes, and hung out with the Pops. It was quite fun, but I didn't regret doing this thing that turned me from 'chic' to 'geek'.
It was on Tuesday, last lesson of the day, Malay. Our teacher, Mrs. Ashok, had almost forgotten to give back our BM books. I was putting back my dictionary, and said to Mrs. Ashok, "Should I give out the books?". She smiled gratefully and nodded. The WHOLE CLASS, even my so-called friends, stared at me in shock. All except these two girls, Stephanie and Jasmine. They looked quite pleased.
After school, almost everyone was giving me evil looks and sneers. Even my so-called friends said 'You had a prob or something? Geek!!" they chanted over and over and over again.
At first, I thought this was quite bad. I even told my personal tutor about it, and she just said to ignore it. That's when I began hanging out with Stephanie and Jasmine. They were girls with senses of humour, and yet, could be awfully serious, just like me.
That started off my unique friendship with my friends. And right now? We're having an absolutely marvellous time together, joking, studying, doing everything best friends do!
Now who says you can't be a geek and have fun at the same time?
