In life people create groups. These groups might be at school, in sports, in extracurricular activities, and through religious organizations. Explain what needs groups fill for people. Explain both the positive and negative aspects of being part of a group. You may relate this to our novel, or you may make it a person reflection of your own experience.
I'm going to get very personal here. A group im familiar with is the little "clicks" in school. Im in the "popular" group surprisingly. There's about equal negative and positive. I want to end this on a good term so I'll start with negatives. First off, girls turn fake and will stab you in the back over lip gloss. Literally. If you tell the wrong person the worst information about you, you can kiss your entire reputation adios. If you make that wrong person mad, there is NO TELLING what she'll do with it. Another thing is you get judged, for anything and everything. The way you walk, talk, laugh, dress, smile, sneeze, fart, you name it they judge it. I personally feel like i have to empress the people i hang out with. I used to be the biggest loner, everybody knew my name but nobody cared who i was (at Erwin) but now (at Apple Valley) everybody knows my name and who i am and they make assumptions about me and call me so many things i cant even keep track of, which gets a little over-bearing sometimes but im hanging in there. Sometimes that is the price you pay. The people you hang out with reflects on you more than you think. Now the positive side! Yay. First of all, you always have someone to talk to, always. Second, you always have backup. When I say "backup" I mean if another girl saying stuff, at least one person in the group that got your back. Last but not least, it creates a good feeling just to know you can go to lunch and sit down and be welcomed. I swear its the best feeling having your own little people to hang out with. It makes the complications of school so much easier, especially when theres like 1 or 2 people done with the math and you can just copy :) Your little group describes you what type of person you are.
