So last night, H, Little J and I talked about how in high school, people are put into social categories. For example, The Breakfast Club illustrated those stereotypes eloquently by personifying The Brain, The Athlete, The Basketcase, The Princess and The Criminal.
We discussed how years later, some people hold on to those stereotypes, trying to break out and prove that they're not the dork they were in high school. Or they might dispel The Princess mojo by rockin' independence as an adult.
In high school, I tightroped a lot of those lines and blurred out somewhere between a Basketcase and a Princess. Sometimes I can still relate to the Basketcase in me, but that princess is looong gone.
How about you? Did you fit into a certain category as a kid? And how does that or doesn't that relate to your adult life?
