Just be yourself.. you dont have to be popular to be cool.. just be social and not one of those kids that wont talk to anybody. try making friends with different kind of kids or people you wouldnt normally talk to! that way you'll be liked a little bit by everybody.
k make a checklist.... and dont tell people u made a check list :P okay first. 1. be as confident as u can even if its an act.. head held hight 2. dont show people ur scared people admire that 3. apprence wise. t shirt skinny jeans and vanz/ conferse. means ur sports wich is hot in most peoples choises. 4. have a flirty side when talking to the opposite sex. but kind be a tease and leave them wanting for. 5 last but no least dont be fake. but just basically take pride in everything you do.
Don't, not only will you regret it but you'll also make a fool out of yourselff. Back when I was in middle school I was like whatevers and this one girl, who was considered "popular" ended up goin to HS but hasn't graduated yet, and she had a baby in her freshmen year.
do what you want when you want..... be the smartest and the coolest at the same time.... stand up for kids who get picked on and make fun of the people who do the picking.... sit where you want at lunch and if anyone has a problem . knock em out... no hesitation... you just gotta run things your way, its your world everyone else just lives in it...
I realized if you're confident but not conceded, nice but not polite, and yourself but not too bold, you'll do good. Don't let people tease you, and if they do, laugh with them. But personally I wouldn't want to be popular because rumors start and some people can't handle that!
