I wasn't really uncool, either, though. I was just kindof on the fringes. Some of my friends were cool, and some of the cool people were my friends. I was an actor, but never funny enough to be on the improv team; on the debate team, but I never won a trophy. I wasn't unhappy in high school, although I wrote my fair share of emo poetry. I was a good student, but never first in my class. I never cared enough about one thing to pour myself into it to the exclusion of everything else, so I ended up being spread moderately thin between several different activities, content to be somewhat involved, while always being jealous of those who knew what they wanted enough to just be a Rugby Player or a Singer.
I just finished reading this article on BlogHer, and it brought back all of those old feelings from high school. I'm really the same person on the internet that I was in high school, aren't I? I like to think about theology, but I don't want to have a religion blog. I dabble in crochet, coffee, reading, writing, cooking, politics, law, etc., but not enough to pour my blog into those topics to the exclusion of all others. And while I have met some great people through my blog, and there are a number of people who read my blog, I'm not exactly a "popular" blogger. And I doubt if I ever will be, because why should the internet judge me any differently than my classmates did? I know I'm not cool. I'm content to be on the fringe of the blogosphere. Or at least I will be as soon as I finish writing this emo poem about it.
