To be honest I never understood why people only hung around with the same interest as each other. The whole ‘stick to the status quo‘ from High School Musical ALWAYS annoyed me- from a very very young age. Although, I did love the whole idea of High School musical introducing division between ‘theater kids’ and ‘jocks’. But I could never understand why so many american tv shows had ‘cliques’ in every single high school. Like, c’mon, we’re all in this together 😉
But in all honesty I just want to know peoples opinions on this in general.
For example, there are four schools in my town;
1. All girls school
2. All boys school
3. Mixed school
4. Mixed practical school
I attend the all girls school, and know quite a few in the mixed school. When I spoke to people in the mixed school, their school seemed to have a totally different atmosphere to mine.
They have division.
Up until they told me this, I though cliques we’re only Americanized Tales used to spread the message of community to pre-teens.
I understand how one would want a friend who shares their interests, but honestly I’d get bored if it was the same interests with the same group of people every day.
“Hey, did you hear Katy Perry’s new song? It’s amazing.”
“Yes. Did you hear Lady Gaga’s new song? It’s great.”
“Yes. Did you hear Rihannas new song? I love it.”
And the cycle would just continue, where as;
“Hey, did you hear Imagine Dragons new song?”
“I’ve never heard of them.”
“Oh you should look them up, they’re brilliant.”
“Sounds awesome. Have you heard of Boys Like Girls?”
“No, but I’ll look them up.”
And there we go! Sharing interests with open minded people!
(And I only used this for an example, it could obviously be with other activities.)
Anywoo, I would describe my school as “a community of sisters”.
The mixed school students described theirs as “us and them”.
And we’re only a five minute walk from each other.
