A) Popular, a regular Cordelia-type, tons of friends, not much more than fun on your mind.

B) Loner, unliked and ostracized- with thoughts of blowing the school up.

C) High IQ nerd, Trek or Star Wars obsessed, able to breeze through school without trying.

D) Take-charge type, could defend yourself in a fight, and talk your way into getting your way. Few, but important friends, very independent.

Myself, I started out as a B in Junior High, but switched to a combo of C/D in High School. Could not abide A types.

Any one else? I suspect many C types are here...

Chrisisall, workin on a thesis (uh-huh...)

Um I've always been a nerd. Not a terribly bringht nerd but a nerd none the less. Never could normal out enought to be popular or cool but at least they didn't make fun of me. Basically I was that wierd girl that's always singing and dancing. I did have lots of differnet groups of friends who had nothing in commen.

I was a combination of B and C. I've always liked to learn, so school hasn't been extrodinarily hard for me. What was hard was socializing. Even though I had friends, once I got to high school, I felt as if I couldn't relate to them. I also was diagnosed with clinical depression, which made it hard just to get up in the morning. As I got older (and changed schools), I did become somewhat more comfortable around people. Though truth be told, I still really don't talk that much, and I'm definitely not that outgoing. Oh well, I guess somethings never change.

I would have been a Type Z. None of your profiles fits.

I was out on the school porch smoking with the heads, on the playing field talking with the jocks, hanging out with my VERY high IQ girl friend, playing D&D with the nerds (long before it was cool to do so) and still got pretty good grades.

Basically, I was the bridge between all of the groups you've described above.

I would of been a A,C,D as long as you throw athlete on top of that and not a huge amount of friends but everyone new me, i was the rare athlete that didnt get along with other athletes because i was a starwars/comic book geek but the athletes had respect for me because of my athletic ability, I always had friends in every type of click in high school (clicks included the standard, preps, prep jocks, band geeks, drama geeks, comic book rpg geeks, gang bangers, Metal heads, goths)

deepgirl187 I was a lot like you. Add that I was slightly overweight and had glasses and the high IQ nerd/geek loner picture was complete. Graduated #10 in my class of almost 300 without studying very hard.

I didn't begin to blossom until way after high school. College, 4 years in the military, a child with learning disabilites, a very nasty divorce and finally coming to recoginize my own predispostion to depression has all made me a better person believe it or not.

I still won't go to my high school reunions though.

Closest to B, and I suppose I could entertain ideals of being D, but I doubt anyone else would describe me as such.

I once sawed my arm to the bone in shop class because a girl was talking to me. I did it without flinching, and she didn't even notice until my blood was spilling on the floor. That was my idea of trying to get someone to stop talking to me.

Headbutting lockers was a favorite passtime, as well as throwing myself down flights of stairs.

I couldn't fight with a spit, but no one ever took the time to find that out. People were generally nice to me, but only in a "he's mentally challenged" type of way.

Even though this is very much inviting comments concerning another thread in a different forum, I'll recount this story anyways, just to better fit the image you're forming of me.

I also got arrested from 10th grade English class for assault and posession of a deadly weapon. Handcuffs, county officer, holding cell, the whole shibang. Spent the rest of my high school years at a private school for trouble makers. Not anywhere near as bad as it sounds, though, the other kids there made me look like a golden child and I essentially cruised through respected by staff and student alike.

I was a strange combination of just about all of them.

I was a mostly A student.
Had lots of "friends" but only a very few close confidents.
I was in choir/theatre,played a sport, was a cheerleader and did student counsel.
I was a TOTAL geek and loved D&D and SciFi/Fantasy.
I hung out with jocks, stoners and geeks (not so much the "beautiful" crowd).
But it was the geeks who had my devotion and still do!

i forgot the question... but actually i can trace my humble beginnings as a anarchist back to jr hi or the 3rd grade really (during a heated game of red rover i called for everybody to come over, thereby creating my rebel persona)... by high school i was blacklisted by every teacher on campus and had to work a little harder than most to maintain my C average... maybe due to the fact that i was constantly distributing pro-castro and communist literature whenever possible... my nickname throughout that miserable time in my life was Red Rover....and i wore it with pride...

Me, I was a mix.
-Not good enough grades to be an IQ student, I got B, B+s without ever doing any homework or studying (except english class).
-Not a tech, never liked "computer science" I hated having to write the programs down.
-Not quite a jock but was atheltic, Track and field and swim team, wanted by the football coach for my speed but never had the time (which I will always regret)
-Band member.
-never quite a D&D guy, apparently I didn't take it seriously enough.
-never made any enemies though.
-funny thing. I ran into a bully that picked on me on the school bus. I am a good foot taller than he is now and at least twenty pounds heavier (muscle, not fat) He looked nervous for a change. (I will remember that to the end of my days)
-went through High school as the a typical 90 pound skinny guy. Working out with the University football team changed that in a hurry.
-generally a happy go lucky guy. Still am.
-went to my high school reunion, with a bit a trepidation, and was hit on by the "popular" girl. My wife got a chuckle out of that.

I had an average IQ, and had friends but didn't obsess about them. Obsessed with Star Wars until 2002 when my Star Wars obsession was dwarfed by my Firefly obsession. I suspect I could hold my own in a fight(Edit: Except with the Almighty Chrisisall!), though I never have been in one.

Much like JOSSISAGOD, I too was a SW fanatic. Still am. I have a closeted love of anything sci-fi and even my friends make fun of me for it. High school... fat, funny girl; choir and theatre, newspaper, shy at first, became increasingly more outgoing. Good grades. Golf in ninth grade, but that's it. The usual.

SASSALICIOUS


I'm kind of a combo of C/D, with a splash of something else.

Super smart, graduated 2 in class of 406 without really trying. Got bored applying to college so I ended up at a state school, oddly enough with an essay all about this perfect appearing girl who was actually an alcoholic crackwhore. Liked star wars, but wouldn't say obsessed. X-files was my obsession. I was involved in some clubs and played softball for the city league, but my friends and I mostly sequestered ourselves in the music/theatre department and voluntarily avoided interacting with anyone else. Worked a lot, played a lot of violin in the city youth symphony and at school, developmed my obsession with travel.

Graduated and the next morning I was on a flight to AK to work for the summer. Been back to visit for a total of less than 6 months in the 4 years since I left.

Can't wait for the 10 or 15 year reunion. My friend's mom is a total gossipy bitch (I almost hope I run into her in the next few days so I can have words). I can't wait to prove her wrong and shatter her illusions about the world. And laugh at certain people.

Vindictive? Me? Nah . . .

Prolly D…

Tried to bridge all the cliques… was mostly referred to as weird and funny. Had spurts of popularity. Played football and wrestled… got in a couple of fights but made friends with both later. My obsession was x-men. Was in a club called DECA where I was able to travel to competitions across the country which opned my eyes.

Got mostly A/B+s until senior year where I skipped school a lot cause I thought I was cool.
Wasn’t worth it. I missed some scholarships. And knowing is half the battle.

Yep, right there with you on the locker thing. Also headbutted the wall and desk on occassion. The desk thing was kind of funny because I did it when frustrated and then carried on like nothing happened and everyone else was looking around for the source of the bang.


Definitely started out as:
C) High IQ nerd, Trek or Star Wars obsessed, able to breeze through school without trying.

But then I realised I didn't need to try, got very bored, developed a deep hatred of all type A people (mostly out of fear, I admit... frequently picked on). So, yeah, by age 13...
B) Loner, 'possibly' unliked 'by some' and ostracized- with thoughts of blowing the school up (Not that I let people know about it!).

Quite a variety of types in here. Who knew we weren't all nerds in high school?

Me, I was more of a geek than a nerd. I was a B average student. (Never really got the hang of that whole homework thing, even in college. :) I took orchestra all through Jr. High/ High School, and I was pretty much the wierd artsy guy in school. I found out early on that I could get attention from doodling in class, so I'd draw portraits of people and the like.

I was never all that outgoing back then (still not, come to think of it,) but I knew enough people in the various cliques that I didn't get picked on too much.

Most of what I remember is being absolutely obsessed with a girl in my grade and being too bashful and awkward to ask her out until the last week of my senior year. (And go figure she'd land a boyfriend two days before I poured my heart out to her :)

I was mostly C. But it was pre-Star Wars and pre-PCs and pre-cable, so while I watched Star Trek the first time around, if there were any Trekkies out there they were still in their parents' basements. *shrug*

I was a reader and non-studier who started hanging out with the freaks halfway thru HS. At that time, there were freaks, nerds, and greasers. Geeks wasn't coined until after I left HS.

But as a side note - the HS that Freaks and Geeks was based on? 6 miles and 5 years from mine. And literally nothing had changed.

Interesting thread! I think I was pretty much a D, I had a few friends I was really close with (only guys though, Freud would have loved it). I was obsessed with and pretty good at water polo, but seeing as I played for the district cos there was no school team meant bugger all to most people!!

Another Z-type here, only female this time.

Hung with the druggies in school but not out of school and was too smart to do drugs myself, played first chair violin so hung with the music geeks, was unathletic so did not speak the same language as the jocks. Did not care much about the social scene in high school as I was living for getting out of there and going to college. I'm glad for that; I find it really sad when the high point of someone's life is high school and everything is downhill from there! Oh dear.

mix of b and c.

I never studied....and still usually got the highest score in the class. I didn't even study for my AP bio test and I still got a 5. And because I was so obviously smart, the other kids at school didn't like me (well, that and the fact that I'm socially retarded).

Blowing up the school actually did cross my mind.....but only because it was falling down around us anyway and it would have given them a reason to build a new one.
