This specific pet peeve is going to have multiple parts because I plan on (eventually) covering
ALL the annoying, cliché, totally unrealistic aspects of high school portrayed in these damn books.

I could actually write an entire novel about this shit, but I'm going to break it up into sections.

First Topic: New Kids

For this one I'm going to go ahead and write an example and then discuss the stupidity behind it.

******EXAMPLE OF THE FUCKERY******

You ever watch the sky as you make your way to school? Whether you're on the bus, in the car, or even walking, you can tell the sky leaves a distinct pattern as it approaches the building. It's because the clouds get darker and darker until there's a big ass abyss swirling over that bitch we call school.

High school is definitely the transitional marker between juvenile hall and prison. That's why when I drug my feet up the steps this morning, I knew I felt my soul die a little more inside. On my way to my locker, I spotted my long time friend, Monica.

"Heeeeeey."

"Hey girlie, what's up?"

"Nothing much, I heard we're getting a new student today. Supposedly 'she' is moving here from Ohio and got kicked out of her other school."

******HOLD IT TF UP******

What the fuck type of spy shit is Monica on? What administrator did she fuck to get this information? Bitch HUH??

First off, I'm so sick of this "I heard we're getting a new student" shit. There are (I think) at least a thousand kids at the average high school, how the fuck does every person get alerted that ONE new person is coming. Because it's always the same set up: main character is told there's going to be a new student, new student suddenly walks through door, everyone starts whispering and starring.

Wtf? How does everyone even know they're new? No one knows every single kid that goes to their high school, so how is it that everyone always finds out that THAT particular person is new? There's been people who have started high school with me, same year and everything, and I STILL don't know who the hell they are because classes (meaning freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior) are too big to recognize everyone in them. So that shit is just unrealistic. And why is everyone always whispering and starring? Everyone doesn't give a fuck that a new kid showed up. Unless yo tittie is hanging out, no one cares.

But back to Monica's ass, how do these students find out this information? Before the new kid even starts, someone already knows details about them. How dat work? Who is telling them this? Are wattpad teenagers THAT nosy and have so much free time that they stalk new people?

Now, it makes sense when people in INDIVIDUAL classes (as in classrooms) find out about new kids because they're specifically coming within those kids vicinity and their teacher probably told them, but it makes zero sense how people find out that new kids are moving to their school in general. Multiple kids move to new schools all year long, so how the fuck did Monica scope out this single new chick?

I'm just over it, y'all gotta do better.


That's it for this one! Many, many, many, MANY more parts to come for this topic because 'logical high school experiences' and 'wattpad' don't mix apparently.

QOC:

What movies are you guys excited to see this year?

I'm ready for Aquaman, The New Mutants, Wreck it Ralph 2, Venom, and Bohemian Rhapsody. (And moreeeee)

Bye my lovelies 💕
