“If you’re good at something the popular crowd deems “uncool”, you are sunk.”
- I think that this quote is saying that if people look down upon you for doing something because they think it isn’t as fun or cool as other people might think. I very much disagree with the quote, because I think that if someone enjoys doing something, they should do it even if they are made fun of. In the book Jodee was almost pressured to do badly in class just so her classmates wouldn’t make fun of her and think she was “uncool” for being smart. Luckily she went with her gut and did really well. But her classmates were cruel and made fun of her still.
- I can relate to this quote because once my friend stopped dressing a certain way and doing her make-up a specific way because everyone made fun of her for it. (especially guys) It used to make me so angry because she would get her feelings hurt every time this one boy said something to her. So she totally changed herself and her physical appearance just so she wouldn’t be made fun of. Everyone always says “be yourself”, but how can kids do that when there is always people judging you and tearing you down?
- Some situations this quote might take place in real life would be if you were really smart, good at sports or physical appearances. There are many others that are talents and not things that should be made fun of.

I agree with everything you said, like how people enjoy things that people think are uncool. I do things every day that people think are dumb but i don't care what they think about it.

I agree with this blog because it is stating that if you are good at something that you just need to follow your gut and go with it. Also the second paragraph I think is something that maybe they should bring up with an adult if it is bothering that person so much and changing her appearance, you need to talk to someone about that the problem. Again in the second paragraph, there will always be someone in life who will do that. They can’t help it they are just trying to make themselves feel good about something that maybe happened to them. They might not mean what they are just saying it, they are just saying it.

I agree with everything you said, like how people enjoy things that people think are uncool. I don't think it should matter. I feel bad for your friend that changed herself. She was probably just fine the way she was.
