Last night I interviewed someone I thought I knew almost everything about. That is, until we started talking about the relationships she has with other people her age. I talked to my only sister Lilly about life, love and middle school drama. She's 13 years old, so while times have changed, middle school seems to have remained the same!
What's the deal with middle school girls?
I just wish they weren't so annoying. Like, when they think they're good singers in the locker room and they actually suck. I guess some girls just think they're something they're not.
I also think some girls just get jealous of each other. Like, "she's going out with him and I like him so I hate her."
Also, a lot of girls are always saying things like "I'm ugly" or "I look horrible today." I think they have self-esteen issues and probably do it for the attention.
So is it hard to make friends?
No, it's not really. But sometimes it is hard to keep them. There are girls you don't like that try to take your friends away. Also, there's this weird 'stereotype' that guys and girls can't be friends. I don't get that. How can they not be friends?
What's the best part of middle school?
Seeing my friends. If my friends weren't at school I wouldn't go.
What's the worst part of middle school?
Sometimes it feels like there's too much to do at once. Also, girls that are mean for no reason at all; they talk about people behind their backs. They just aren't nice people.
You're going to start eighth grade in the fall. What's the "dating" scene like right now? Do people have boyfriends and girlfriends?
Yes, but they aren't serious. They just 'date' and then break up a day later.
A day later?
Okay, maybe like a week later.
Is it cool to have a boyfriend or girlfriend?
I don't think it's cool, but other people my age might think so.
Describe what you would consider to be the perfect boyfriend.
Funny, good-looking *laughs*, and nice. Like, he does nice, cute little things for you.
Do you believe that there is true love? Like in the movies?
Yes I do. I don't know why, but I do.
What's a good couple, movies, tv, anywhere, that you consider to be a good role model?
The two people in the movie Leap Year. They didn't even know each other but they were so comfortable with each other.
I have to ask. What is the DEAL with Justin Bieber?
I don't know why people love him, but he needs to hit puberty. *Laughs* No seriously. He does.
You listen to him!
I think people like him cause he sings love songs. Even though he doesn't know about it cause he's like 12.
So how old do you have to be before you know?
Maybe when he's much older.
Taylor Swift sings about love. She's not extremely older than he is.
I think she's old enough. Plus, she actually writes her own songs. I'm not sure, but I don't think Justin Bieber does.
I think you should have a blog called The Random Thoughts of Lilly Haish. Doooooo it.
