Alright, this is just weird. Saying hello to a journal? Wow, Kailey...just wow. It's not like anyone is going to read this...but still. I think I should introduce myself.

My name is Kailey. I'm 16-years-old, and I attend Sunningbrook High. My looks are pretty average, there's nothing special about me. I have plain, long brown hair and brown eyes. Yup. That's it. I do like to sing and be in the spotlight, unlike my 18-year-old sister, Emily. Now, she's beautiful. She has beautiful, luscious, blonde hair that goes just a bit past her shoulders, and bright blue eyes. We're not only different in looks, but personality-wise too. I love to sing - she dances. I like to read - she's amazing at sports. I love to be in the spotlight - she prefers to stay in the shadows and not be noticed. I'm not that interested in boys - Emily basically adores them. She absolutely hates school - I'm alright with it. She likes to be fashionable - I honestly couldn't care less. Sometimes I wonder if we're actually related.

Anyways...tomorrow is the first day of school. Oh joy. I know I said school's okay for me, but it's not the school I like - it's seeing all my best friends, learning important  stuff (IMPORTANT, not useless things like algebra. I mean, seriously, when am I going to use that in life?), making new friends and seeing Marius. You don't know who Marius is? Well, he's my boyfriend. You're probably thinking: Woah, Kailey has a boyfriend? But I thought you weren't interested in boys!  Listen up, people. Just because I don't fawn over every cute guy I see doesn't mean that I hate the other gender. It just means I'm not an idiot.

Wonder what he looks like? Well, wonder no more. Marius has brown hair, brown eyes and an athletic build. I'm not an athlete, but that doesn't mean I can't like athletes! He's popular, and so am I. Don't get me wrong, we're not those mean popular kids. I didn't even try to be popular in the first place, but now that I am, I'm not complaining. I'm kind of disgusted about those stereotypes how all popular girls love makeup, boys, shopping and being mean. What am I, chopped liver? Whenever I do see someone well-known bullying someone just because they have a higher "status", I always try to stop it. It's just cruel. Those types of people are why we have stereotypes about popular people in the first place.

I've talked about my sister, my it's time for my best friends: Alexa, Beatrice, Bryony, Frankie, Harper, Jade, Maddie, Opal and Xandra. Alexa is flirty, mischievous and a lot of fun to be around. Beatrice is preppy and pretty. She can seem a bit stuck up, but she's lots of fun when you get to know her better. Bryony is quiet and studious. She has absolutely no idea how beautiful she is. Frankie is always the life and soul of the party. That's literally all I need to say about her. Harper is cheeky. Very cheeky. She is almost always playing pranks on people. Jade shines just a bit brighter than everyone around her. She just has that aura, you know? Maddie is usually sensible, but easily lead astray by a hot boy. I'm sorry, but it's true! Opal is never boring and admired by all. Lastly, there's Xandra. She's cute, funny and always messing around.

Well, there you have it. It's getting quite late, so I think I'll head to bed now. Goodnight!
