I am a tiny, shy, good looking blonde. I’m not trying to sound conceited, I’m just explaining. I’m in my first year of college and now more than ever I’ve noticed how people perceive me. As an idiot.
All the people I meet in my classes, I can tell that they think I’m just a stupid partier. Reality is I don’t party ever, and I’ve been on the honor roll since kindergarten. Even my first semester of college I was on the honor roll. I’m not stupid.
In my culinary class, we split up in groups of 3. The two girls in my group watch me like a hawk. They bark out orders at me like I’m a three year old, and are constantly asking me questions to make sure I’m doing things that are just common sense. Funny part is, I’m the only one in the group who HASN’T messed anything up.
For my job, I nanny my neighbors 3 kids. Anywhere I take them people treat me like I’m just a kid too. Obviously if I’m being trusted with 3 kids 5 days a week, I’ve got some brains in my head.
And when I’m driving with some of my “friends”, they try to make fun of me for ‘making mistakes’ when really I’m just being a safe driver. I’m sorry I refuse to drive 10 over the speed limit and ride people’s asses. I like to follow the rules of the road and stay safe.
I’m just so incredibly sick of it! Don’t judge a book by its cover. I’m gonna just explode soon and it’s not gonna be good. If all this has taught me anything though, it’s for me myself to not judge other people. And I haven’t, I guess that’s good.
