Hey Mikey- “F**k The Cool Kids!”

Hey Mikey,

I’m lonely. Like really lonely. I moved to Atlanta a year ago and I still really don’t know anyone. I’m outgoing, kind, and I always try to think of others before I act but no one here seems to care. They’re so clique-ish and I’m not use to that at all. A group of popular kids at my school invited me to go bowling with them last week and I was really happy. That’s until I realized they only invited me because I have an Expedition and they needed a ride….

They didn’t even know my name. They decided to cancel on me in then spread rumors that I was thirsty to be their friend. Ultra cliché right? Well everyone believes them, and now I’m being called everything from stalker to obsessed. The icing on the cake is the boy that I was kind of getting to know decided to abruptly stop talking to me because of it. This really hurts me and honestly, I feel like just taking some pills and calling it a night. This is hard and I’ve got two more years of high school with these assholes. What should I do?

-Being Me

***Being Me, FUCK THE COOL KIDS! You are a very smart girl and I commend you for not becoming another one of their minions. Just because that popular does not make them good people, evidenced in how they are now spreading rumors about you. Allow me to inform you that High School is very temporary! Life has a way of turning thingd around and these “popular kids” of today will be the losers of tomorrow. By the way, this is also a form of bullying you need to notify an adult. Darling, you do matter! Your life matters! Whether you’re joking or not, taking pills to fix any situation is NEVER okay. Continue to be yourself. Friends will come.

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, where it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -Michael Jonvier
