elitist: an individual that is considered elite amongst peers (Webster's New World Dictionary)
: someone who thinks and acts like they are better than everyone else, and only hangs out with people that they deem worthy. (Louisiana School definition)
Okay now that we got that out of the way, I have a question. In a previous post by "Mark the spot", the "elitists" were mentioned. Prior to that, the only other time that I heard anything else about it was from John Shore calling everybody on 1A elitist. (ha) B/C this topic went basically unspoken throughout the year (or so I thought), I wasn't aware that there were people who were being placed into that category. Mark mentioned it and Michael basically asked who. The answer was not as clear as I needed it to be so I'll ask again simply b/c I'm curious. If anyone felt like there were elitist this past year, please post a comment. If you don't feel comfortable mentioning names then that's fine. However, I should point out that if the person in question was a senior, then you probably won't see them again anyway so why not mention their name. (not to instigate or anything) Any comments made will be for the sole purpose of feeding my appetite for a good piece of "gossip". (In other words I'm nosy and I want to know)
I thought that elitists no longer existed at LSMSA. However, towards the end of the year, I heard the term brought up again a few times, usually against me. I had several people call me an elitist to my face and really don't see how anyone could think that I was one. I talked to SOO many people. Anyone who was nice to me, I was nice back. Christina Sweeney even said to my face that Me and ALL of my friends were elitists. I just find that crazy. Do people honestly think we were? Also, if they did, WHY!!! I think we were just like everyone else and as far as saying we only hung out with each other...that goes for EVERYONE! Everyone hangs out with their friends because they are you're friends...OK all of this only made sense in my head. Someone else with clearer thoughts should try to comment on this. I'm really interested too.
I heard it an awful lot, especially when I moved to the first floor. I dunno, I talked to everybody and I can't really say that too many people rubbed me the wrong way. But by "elitist" I don't think it's necessarily something people would say are people who think they're better than anyone else, but a lot of people [I'm saying 1st East, the "elitist" hall] felt like some people were completely exclusive to certain people and didn't make the effort to talk to other people. I felt that way about a lot of people, but I wouldn't put them in the "elitist" category because it went for so-called "clavers" too.
Some people just click with certain people, and some people click with everybody. I don't think high school labels are really important, especially once you graduate and whatnot. I wouldn't even care, but then again, I don't think I was put into any real category.
And, yeah, I heard your name thrown into the "elitist" category...guilty by association I guess because I don't agree.
Thanks, that means a lot and sorry if you ever felt like noone liked you on 1st East. I thought you were chill.
Nah, I ain't felt that way from anybody on that hall but like one person and that was after all the stuff with prom happened. So I mean, maybe I brought that upon myself but whatever. What's done is done right?
But no, I just heard the word thrown around a lot when I did move, because hey, I was moving from the claver hall to a totally different genre of people.
So it's all gravy ;)
That was more of an inside joke than anything else.
Kayla? Not an elitist.
Kellen? Not an elitist.
Just to clear it all up.
