There's the very active student council president and all around popular kid, @basilesamel 

There are the high achievers and streak-chasers, racking up multi-week streaks and thousands of words a day. 

There are the hustlers, who like to talk about how they're going to make money doing this or that. Mostly they like to talk (write). 

There are the nerds who talk about their multiple hobbies and how they're doing this or that but without the 'get money' mentality. (They're going to be a lot richer than the hustlers some day)

There are the cheerleaders, always commenting and encouraging others - shit, that's me.

There are the quirky kids who just write random posts - that's also me.

There are the socializers who just come to school to hang out with their friends and don't care too much about the writing.

There are the foreign kids who speak their own language all the time. They are kind of ignored.

There's the immigrant kids who speak English but you can tell by their accent they're not from around here. 

There are the rich kids - you can tell who they are because they are totally above all this.

There are average kids who just want to get on with it and eventually graduate. 

There are the kids who show up just because their parents dropped 'em off, but they're not really interested so they complete their texts with lorem ipsum or an entire page of 'sdf sdf sdf sdf'. (you know who you are).

There are the kids who skip school and show up every couple of days.

Finally, there are the kids who drop out (press 'F' to pay your respects)

Do you recognize yourself on this list? Who did I miss?

PS: Wrote this for fun. It's based on some observation but it's mostly exaggeration. Don't think I'm singling anyone out - except for the guy who wrote 'sdf sdf sdf...' for 200 words.

    @gabrielgreco Love the personas. Guess I'm some kinda quirky rich cheerleading nerd depending on the day and which way the wind is blowing. Whaddya think @Lucjah?

    @gabrielgreco - LOL.
    How did I miss this one?
    @lucjah - I am multiple things. Definitely the nerd according to my friends. I hope I am the other nice things too. I think I connect with @gabrielgreco both in style and content so I share in whatever he is.

    Nice hilarious piece.
    Who is here because their parents dropped them off?

      @keni Let's just say getting dropped off is an allegory for some type of external pressure to 'do the writing thing'. Also, who knows, maybe that's nobody?? I had fun imagining that it is somebody though haha

      @gabrielgreco @lucjah ha! funny :)
      What does mean "sdf"? (if it means anything..)
      I'd be the immigrant kid, I suppose. And I also write random posts, I think ☺️

      @gabrielgreco @lucjah Haha, I actually have no idea. Probably the kid at the back of the class eating erasers.

      @gabrielgreco @lucjah - I'm one of the quirky kids who write random bits - also a hustler, who writes ( talks ) more than takes action about how to make money :-)

      @jasonleow Yeah, I was thinking how life is often an extension of high school, you do have all the same types. Sometimes it's really easy to imagine exactly what somebody was like back then.
