I’m not that girl,

The one you see sitting in the back,

Listening intently as the teacher rambles on.


I’m not that girl,

That is already done with homework,

Five minutes after getting the assignment.


I’m not that girl,

That flaunts her 100 on a test,

By letting the teacher compare everyone’s to hers.


I’m not that girl,

That has a perfect life,

And everything is going perfectly for her.


That’s not me.


I’m that girl,

That will smile at you to cheer you up then goes and hides,

In the bathroom so you don’t see my tears.


I’m that girl,

That tries hiding under her desk from embarrassment when her teacher comments,

On her high score she didn't even study for.


I’m that girl,

Finishing her homework while hoping,

The bell doesn’t ring for the class it’s due for to begin.


I’m that girl,

That’s mind is on anything else,

But the lesson on probability.


I’m that girl,

You’ll never get to know,

Cause you judged a book by it’s cover.
People always judge me because I'm quiet in class and usually make pretty good grades. They get mad at me and ignore me a lot because they think I'm too stuck up to talk to them and am 'better' then them because of my high scores. 

In actuality I'm usually either in the middle of a daydream or fidgeting so badly because of my slight ADHD that I can't focus on anything in class so I just shut off. And the grades? I have no idea how I get them. I never study (I hate doing it) so I usually guess. I'm a good guesser it seems. 

Lesson of the day: Don't judge a book by its cover. 

And getting to know that quiet person in the back may be the best decision of your life. 

Edit: Whoa! How'd this get so popular?! Anyway, I think I need to clarify something: I'm not comparing myself to other people! I'm comparing how people see me as I quiet, studious person to the more rash and daydreamer I really am! Apparently people are getting a little confused by that...

Ohmygoshgof I love this. Ha. This is almost like me, but I always sit in the front (because of hearing and visual problems)
