I should have gone to school with you then. Mine was HELL.
Oh yeah it was hell to start with. You think you got prejudice over there? Ha, try being a French kid in a British private school... every day is another Agincourt... our people have loooooong memories!!
But that's why I liked it. Gave me something to rise to!

so my friend goes to school in nashville and she told me how she bought Uggs I laughed in her face. first those things are ugly and over priced and it's Nashville, TN it's not cold enough to own uggs. The boots I wear one pair is from payless for $25 and the other is from target for the same price. ok I know I shouldn't laugh, but I can't help it anyone stupid enough to spend on arm and leg on clothes made for a nickle in some third world sweatshop just because of some lame-ass label :rolli:
We've been wearing ugg-style boots in Australia for at least 30 years now. Far longer, probably. All the guys in my boarding school had a pair - not because they were cool but because they are warm and easy to wear. Plus, it supports the wool industry. We've even been calling them "ugg-boots" for as long as I can remember - back into the early 80s. So if we can wear them here then I don't think Kentucky would be too hot for them. Over here, ugg-boots are extremely casual winter footwear in the same way that flip-flops are extremely casual summer footwear. There's nothing even slightly posh about them.
I must have been lucky. I went to a Catholic private school, but it seems to me that highschool was a breeze in terms of socialising. When I started, we were two black-clad and a handful of alternative dressers - upon graduation, at least half the freshman year looked freaky. Coolness wasn't established in terms of brandnames, but rather in terms of personas. There just weren't enough jocks to make an impact on the social hierarchy; when the stereo was on in the common room, R'n'B was substituted for Nine Inch Nails almost every day.
I was one of 'the cool kids' in school. Tried to be civil, didn't bully anyone...In retrospect I think I could have put more effort into that.
Boots: I got a pair of Doc Martens evil-looking huge black boots a few years ago. Before that, I had combat boots with holes in the soles, so getting a pair of boots that ensured dry socks has made me love my boots and I wouldn't trade them for anything (except maybe smaller, warmer, comfier and more feminine huge, evil boots). The Ugg-boots are hideous. I keep seeing size zero sixteen-year olds with way too little clothes on and those boots. They look like 'Bratz-dolls go to Aspen' or something like that. I guess they get up at 5 am in the weekends to work in a bakery or something to afford those boots. I just don't get it.
I was definitely not a jock in high school. It was not the best of times, but not because of that. I just wasn't able to connect to anyone very well in that environment at that point in my life. Although I learned a lot about myself that way. It's all good in the end.

I didn't have to deal with much social crap in high school, I think because it was so small that there wasn't enough room to really form the usual hierarchy of cliques, or perhaps people didn't really care enough to make them, or got mixed a lot so there was less room for that stuff to form.
