Fake People at Byrnes Freshman Academy
May 1, 2014James F Byrnes Freshman Academy
People in high school are still fairly immature. They are trying to figure out who they are, and where they fit in. As they do this, they may try different personalities.
People at this age are also largely influenced by the actions and comments of others and feel the need to fit in with the crowd. Teens do whatever they can to please the other. Of course, there are a few people who truly are fake, stupid, materialistic, and shallow.
Alex, a blogger on Yahoo, said, “It's when you do things you know you wouldn't or shouldn't do, and when you are someone different than whom you know you are. It's when you don't act or look the way you and only you want yourself to act or look.
“It's when you say the things you don't sincerely feel. And do you know who the best teller of someone’s fakeness is?
“That individual him/herself.”
Mr. Tucker, ISS instructor at Byrnes Freshman Academy, said, “My definition of fake is when your close friends or family member talks about you behind your back and don’t say it to your face. But I don’t think I have any fake family members or friends who would do that to me.”
Jayda Kelly, student at Byrnes Freshman Academy, said, “I don’t hang around fake people because I know who my real friends are. I came in this world by myself, so therefore I’m not going to worry about anybody but myself, and family. I stick to myself. If I talk about someone I’m gonna keep it real and tell them to their face what I said about them.”
Jonas Jones, student at Byrnes Freshman, said “I don’t hang with fake people nor do I like them.”
