Wanna know what what a true rebel/non-conformist is? It isn't someone who rags on other cliques or openly does something stupid or rude to others. It isn't someone who follows some popular choice of style. It isn't someone who does drugs or drink. And it DEFINETELY isn't one of those stereotypes from old fifties movies! It's someone who can hardly stand out at all because they're lost in the sea of cliques. You simply cannot classify a rebel in any clique, because they follow their own dress code putting on and picking out what they think is cool and not wearing something because it seems punk or preppy. A rebel doesn't do something because it's hot for the moment or because it seems hardcore or something a rebel would wear. As a matter of fact, most rebels don't even know they are rebels. They befriend whoever they like, listen to whatever they want to listen to, and behave in the manner they see fit. These people live their lives the way they want to and not the way everyone expects them to. They can be punk one day, preppy the next, and hip hop by the end of the week but they never conform to one thing (unless they just really like it). In short, a rebel/non-conformist lives life the way they see fit without caring how others see them and what others think. Think you're a rebel? Check out your wardrope, your style of music, your friends and ask yourself, " Do I really like this because I think it's cool or because others think it suits me?" "Do I really like this person or do I associate with them because others expect me to?"
Trust, true rebels are far in between and are often the most unlikely people you'll ever think of.
Prep girl: Hey, is that one of those punk girls?
Other prep girl: I thought she was goth...
Prep girl: Oh, then why's she talking to those thugs?
Other prep girl: Like, I dunno... but I heard her listening to some country music in her car the other day.
Prep girl: That's soooo weird! I thought those kinds of people listened to rock.
Other prep girl: That girl is sooo weird!
Prep girl: Totally!

Teacher: She's what you would call a rebel... a non-conformist.
Other prep girl: Nuh uh!
Teacher: Then what would you call her?
Teacher: Thats what makes her a rebel.
(teacher walks away, girls dumbfounded)
