On Tuesday I'm More Popular, I'm Sexier, and I Even Became An Expert

Updated on January 13, 2009

In Junior high school, I was a loser on Monday, a dork on Tuesday, a freak on Wednesday, and mega loser on Thursday, and invisible on Friday.

I was never popular. In fact, I managed to acquire a few random nasty nicknames during my junior high school lifespan.

Popularity though was always something I admired, and it always amazed me that popularity honesty, truly has absolutely nothing to do with how pretty your face is, how juicy your butt was, or how pouty your lips were (although it helped). Popularity for many in my junior high at least came from personality.

I mean I know I have a personality. Everyone does. Mine however stood in hibernation mode ever since grade school, and being the quite kid instantly qualifies you as the loser. The quite kid is the freak, the quite kid is the dork, the quite kid rarely has friends.

The quite kid eventually begins to wear dark clothing, band tee shirts, and smells like a somewhat addicting mix of gasoline and bubble gum.

That was me in junior high. I thought pink was ugly, I hated preppy girls, and jocks made me sick.

In reality though, I was simply jealous that they had friends. Jealous that they could let loose, laugh at themselves, and jealous of the fact that no matter how annoying I tried convincing myself they were... they were popular.

Over the years I worked on bringing out my personality more, and even managed to scoop up a few friends along my new journey to finding friends. I wasn't even looking to be popular, but a 'friend' would of been nice. Soon pink became pretty, and preps were fun, Jock's still annoying- but likable in their own quirky annoying way.

.The moment I step into the wonderful world wide web, I became quickly slammed back into junior high years; the days when I was the class loser. The class dork, the days I traveled in large groups of none.

There is one difference though here online, than there is in real life. On Tuesday, my online popularity soars. For some unknown reason (likely my erotic addicting electronic Internet pheromones?) I am popular.

On Wednesday I become the unknown again, yet for some reason, every Tuesday everybody online knows my name. It's quite an interesting phenomenon, does anyone else seem to have a particular day when everyone wants to know you, and the very next day no one cares about you?

I figure maybe everyone here on Hubpages has a day that is a popular day? According to my clicks, Tuesday is my day.

I imagine though more people are home and on the PC though than any other day, and are busy with families on weekends?

At any rate, I've enjoyed my Tuesday, the big fellas over at Hubpages decided to no longer rank me as a Novice. Tuesday is my lucky day, because today Hubpages dubbed me an expert! In what I'm not sure, but I imagine it has something to do with being popular on Tuesday. Hehe.

      You don't write like a nerd (Ok, but an insightful one.) You must have been very quiet, otherwise people would have known about the wit and wisdom, right?

      I don't know if I have a day like you describe or not. I never thought about it specifically, but there are days like that, it's just not always the same day. I think it's true too about more people being online on tues. evenings, so that might be part of it.

      I can remember being puzzled when i suddenly became an 'expert'. Expert in, on, in or of what-- I wondered. But I have come to accept it. You will, too. We are experts.

      Nice hub.

      Great hub, the scoring is kind of funny here, and it can make or break your day sometimes. I have not recieved one of those medals yet, and I'm kind of sad about it, but life will go on. You will love it here on HP, it's like a big family, so welcome to the family. I look forward to reading more from you.

      If you don't want to delete the one in the other site, make sure to indicate a disclaimer of some sort on the one you're publishing here. Something like "this appears blah blah" oh you know the drill :D

      I recently pubblished a fart guide and it is mine. I have it on other sites, but it is not owned by anyone. I own the rights... at any rate I posted it here and it came up as duplicate? Can anyone clarify this. I saw in forums things regarding duplicate, but I wanted to make sure it was okay for me to publish my work even though I have it on other sites?

      lol. Yes, my feelings were hurt. I felt like they gave me a grade, and then swooped it away. Like in school... with the whole D- grading crap. Couldn't just give me a D. Nope, D- for me.

      the scores go down and down, like Monica Lewinsky, its slightly depressing and makes me feel like drinking. But for some reason, they occasionally decide to go back up. They gave me the title of expert last week, but I still consider that a mistake on their part, but they didn't and won't take it away. As far as this hub goes, all I can say it looks like Wednesday, will be sweeter than Tuesday.

      They don't take titles away, but they toy with your heart when it comes to the scores! LOL btw, i've answered your query about a pic in my hub. Don't want to post the answer here as this is a fun hub (wink)

      thanks. I like it here. On other sites Ive been on, it took ages to even get my first comment. I tried out blogger, and turns out Im a nerd, so I never get a comment... I just assume Im a nerd though, its my own speculation. lol. But yes, today I was shocked to see that I'm an 'expert'.... do they take titles away I noticed myscore goes up and down everyday, and it hurts my feelings. haha!

      The first part of this hub seemed like the beginning of a hub on the origin of the goth! LOL Yes Hubpages does offer unexpected sources of simple joys, the scores, the fans, and the newly minted medals! Glad you have settled in alright :D
