I have always been the one on the outside, not bothering to look in. Since I was a small girl, lost in books, I always knew something was different. Not just the outside stuff, like my family is all blond and I have dark hair, but rather my brain seems to work a little differently. A glass half-empty kind of girl, if you catch me. I have scraped by in life on sarcasm and brains: I am not particularly pretty, nor particularly rich. Okay, that is an overstatement. I am going to go with not-at-all rich. You should see the pile of crap car that I own now.
The social graces of Neptune High are something, aside from money, that I do not possess. In fact, they seem to go hand-in-hand in the 09er crowd in this town. Look at all of them: Duncan, Meg, Dick, Logan, Madison. They all have money. I guess that girl Veronica doesn't though. Hm. Maybe you have to "marry” into it.
I don't want this to sound jealous though, because I am certainly not that. Being different, being my own person is so precious and much more important then being the girl who everyone likes. At least that is what my mom tells me. *snark*
Rather than bitching about things that I don’t have, I am trying to instead, set the scene. I am a junior in high school in a place where movie stars and millionaires' children live out their dysfunctional collective, money takes you anywhere and the gap between the have and have nots is only getting bigger.
I prefer to avoid all of this. I just stick to computers and planning world dominance. Life is much easier that way.
