Basically a venting thing. :) Please review and tell me what you think! Oh, but before u review, read first! :D
Disclaimer: I do not own the song "Miss Independent" by Kelly Clarkson. I do own this girl's thoughts though! :)
Miss keep your distance
Miss out of my way
Miss don't let a man interfere
I wish dramatic music played in real life. The movie trailer with words popping on the screen, a narrator depicting my every move. Words of hate and passion and letters of suspense. Sadly, life wasn't a sold-out movie. I longed to be one of those actresses—a single tear from actresses like Meryl Streep could make the whole world cry with her, resulting in the globe drowning in tears. I wanted to be that character whose smile you loved to see and whose enemies you deeply despised.
All those thick-headed people at school would love me and hate me for being so perfect. Those boys would worship the ground I walked on and not Adrianna Garcia's. Not that I had a problem with Adrianna. It's not one of those situations where she's a mean Alpha-girl and I'm a lowly geek or anything. We're actually best friends.
Adrianna is what every guy wants. Gorgeous, smart, nice, and athletic. She also doesn't really have much of an opinion—I'm the sassy outspoken one. The gruff, political-guru, feminist, one-of-the-boys type of thing. I have a sarcastic and goofy sense of humor. Its not that I don't have any boy charming skills—I just choose not to use them.
I'm not even that ugly either. I guess I'm just… intimidating, and don't exactly fit the template of "dating material". And I'm only 13, so who cares right? Yeah, that's what I thought.
One thing I do outshine Adrianna in is music. And a sense of humor. But I guess guys find it annoying if you break out singing every second.
But enough about me. Let's talk about you. Are you second-best? Join the club, sister. If you're an attention-hogging, Megan Fox's sister, or even a pretty, nice girl who gets all the guys… could you stop it already? Stop plucking your eyebrows, stop using acne-medicine, and start beating up some stupid boys already!
People could say I'm jealous. I'm not jealous… I'm opinionated. Yes. That's what I am. I'm an independent, intelligent, beautiful woman who doesn't need some stupid Neanderthal telling her to lose weight. Yup, I'm perfectly fine alone… Alone, such a lonely word.
So, by keeping her heart protected
She'll never, ever feel rejected
Little miss apprehensive
Said ooh, she fell in love
Please review and tell me what you think! :D
