Be yourself, and just go with the flow to find where you fit in

Cliques are a reality; you can't force people (teenagers especially) to like each other when they don't. So find your clique (or anti-clique, if that's what you'd rather think it is) and have a good time. Seriously; 20 minutes after graduation none of it means a thing.

I guess I feel into the lucky minority...I never fit into a clique so i could freeley drift from one to another and befriend the whole class lol. Cliques in my opinion are pointless but they are there and are a harsh reality.

I just avoided cliques like the plague. I was the type of kid who could get along with anyone in the school social hierarchy (which is where my band got the term 'unlabeled' from :P), and you realize how idiotic most of the people in cliques are once you listen to them long enough. Especially growing up in Shanghai where parent's care even less about what their kids do than in the States.

Seriously people, I don't get why people are soooo offensive, What I did throughout high school was befriend anyone and everyone, I never had one "clique" I was in or hung out with. I made friends from the jocks, the preps, the freaks, the goths, the emos, the cowboys, basically anyone who would talk to me. I had lots of friends, but I was never popular, I was often made fun of, and I know that cliques hurt, but I never got why the goths would never talked to the preps, because they were offended to think about it or that I would ask why, seriously stop being so offended and guess what you'll have alot more friends which make the cliques not matter near as much, and now that I'm out of high school, I still have tons of friends, and no cliques to worry about

Fake it, and rule the school: do what you must to be accepted
