People Break Down Which High School Stereotypes They Fit Into

We all spend our formative years trying to figure out who we are. Who we think we are actually determines the subjects we take, the things we become fans of, and the friends we make.

This is especially true in high school. Whether it's because of who we already are, or because of labels others gave us, we all fit into different cliques and groups.

Being studious, I fit in well with the honors crowd. My tendency to start new clubs, as well as become a part of already existing ones, also earned me the unofficial title of "all-around joiner."

Curious about these stereotypes, Redditor MountEverest14 asked:

"What high school stereotype did you fit into?"


Now You See Him, Now You Don't

"The military brat."

"I showed up for a year, sometimes less, and then disappeared again and never spoke to anyone from the school ever again."

– FormalMango

The Quiet One

"I was so quiet I was marked absent from a study hall class for nearly a whole semester. That I actually attended and never missed."

"Got pulled into dean's office for it and it got rectified there."

"I grew up in a household where I basically had to live as a be seen not heard...but got too good at it and basically became never seen or heard Milford school "least seen on campus" winner."

– Tee_hops

Unnotcied

"Background actor #4"

– FanciiFrog

The Typical "Nerd"

"Nerd:

  • Dungeons and Dragons
  • Virgin

"Yeah..."

– AmeripeanBoi

Casper The Invisible Ghost

"Ghost. I was the one who no one knew after going to school together for four years.

I've changed, sometimes I actually participate in life now."

– ofsquire

The Everyman

"The happy go-lucky kid that could hang out with the popular kids, the sporty kids, the stoners and the nerds. Basically a social butterfly."

– thunderfart_99

High School Chameleon

"I was the definition of a floater."

"I was equally loved (and probably hated) across all the stupid cliques. I was an art kid, an ESL misfit, a stoner/skater, I was cool with the jocks, with the nerds... My girlfriend was in the orchestra, my homies were in detention. It was a mess of a journey, but I made it."

– monstersommelier

Non - Spiderman

"the andrew garfield peter parker minus the hot girlfriend and cool super powers"

– ItsDocL

The Tag-Along Nomad

"The new kid. I went to 7 high schools in 3 states. My mum married an old man who didn’t know where he wanted to live"

– 2muchonreddit

Some people discovered who they were in high school. Others discovered who they were not. The good news about high school is, who you are then isn't who you have to be now. Be who you are, and live your best life!

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor spwf asked the online community,

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
