this because those who are too much focused on school usually do not have time for partyingand socializing. Most of the time, they are the ones who are very obedient to their parents, sothey do not have the chance to try out new things and vices like alcohol and cigarette.From my own experience, the nerdy ones in our high school, those who are always busy
studying and are conscious of acing their exams, are often teased by the “cool” people, or those
who are always seen talking with their friends and just hanging out in the corridors. They would
make face and say “eww” to whoever they see studying their readings or practicing math.
It annoys me that these people actually have the guts to degrade the “nerds” when they
are the ones who should be ashamed of theirselves. They fail in exams, have vices, called to theguidance office and being punished my the school for misbehavior and rule violations.Sometimes, I would think that this is just one of their defense mechanisms, a way to lift theirown levels amidst all their failures.I also noticed that the ones who pursue their studies usually are the ones who have lessin life and those who are well-off usually do not care about their studies. In the short scene thatI wrote, I tried to show these observations.
