Homecoming 2008


"Its not about the amount of punches yoo throw. Or the words yoo can so blindly spit out."

I made homecoming court for Union County High School.
Yes, me. The girl who never expected to win anything and is occasionally looked at with funny glances as I walk down the hall.
I like to do my own thing, your comments have never phased me and all that's ever mattered to me was that I keep my incredibly amazing friends and a good head on my shoulder.
I've succeeded in this.

Maybe it is just the fact that my day has been pretty glum. Or maybe that I have a lot of homework that I am freaking out about on top of all of this.
Whatever the reason may be...today, all your comments you toss my way in hope to bring me down, actually got to me.
I don't know what I was expecting. Maybe that for once, everyone would be happy and excited and pat me on that back saying "good job". Whatever it was, I didn't get.

All day I've heard about how I don't deserve to be on homecoming court.
I don't exactly know how to take that. What was I supposed to do in order to deserve this? Go through some homecoming bootcamp and prove that I wanted this?
I've never seemed excited about it because I'm not one that anyone would ever expect to be chosen to for this.

Despite what you say or how you feel about it, I'm not backing out of this.
For once, the "freaks" get a chance to stand up and be noticed for once. This just proves that you don't have to look or act a certain way to get recognized.
I treat people with respect and I believe that's why I got chosen over some others.

Maybe before you shoot out your purposely hurtful comments, you should think about how it is going to affect others. Not just in this situation, but anytime.
Despite how often I keep my head held high walking past you and I pretend like I can't hear you, I have feelings too.
I'm not immune to your words and it does indeed hurt my feelings.
Please, just think before you spit out your insults.
I have faith that these people aren't bad people, they are just getting caught up in silly high school drama. None of this is going to matter 2 years down the road.
What is going to matter is how you treat others. Work on that and just be happy for what's going on right now.

In conclusion, all I have to say is this will be the most rockin' homecoming ever :D

I'm glad you got it.
Don't listen to the tards.
I don't see why it really matters and they are being dramatic about it anyways... It's not like they don't have 2 years to get it anyways. Besides if they're gunna act this way, they definitely deserve it.

Ah. High school drama never gets old. hah.

Anyhow the point of my post! I'm proud of you for not backing down... and of course they're hurtful comments would get to anyone. But you're standing up to them. That makes me look up to you more. :] So I just want to say Congratulations! And if I was ever around you during the day... I would definitely give you a pat on the back. Maybe even a hug! :P

What? You totally "deserve" to have made it onto homecoming court, whatever that means. I mean, obviously enough people in your grade thought so. Don't listen to the dummies, even though it's hard not to sometimes. The whole time I've known you, you've always made a conscious effort to look nice and the vast majority of the time succeeded. You also have a good heart, unlike a ton of people who didn't, and some who did, make it. You've earned it! So congrats! You have my vote. :)

Oh, and hey, try not to let the drama get you down. The same type stuff happened to me during my sophomore year. Things will get better soon, just keep your head up. And I know that's easier said than done, as everyone lives in the "now." Sorry. I'm not much of any help.

PS -- When's Union County's fall break?
