    Cool Your high school class

    You are an English teacher at a high school in a suburb in the Sun Belt. Your name is:

    The teens in your class:


    1. A girl of English descent with a blonde ponytail and blue eyes, wearing a tank top, blue jeans, flip-flops and a bracelet. She is a trendy who enjoys ordering clothes from Delia*s, visiting the mall and making smoothies. She has her future all planned out: she's going to be a waitress. She has broken up with a long line of ex-boyfriends, but says that with her current boyfriend, she's feeling something she never felt before. She plans every date, all the time with friends, out a week in advance. She likes Gwen Stefani and No Doubt. She cuts herself out of existential despair, reads Sylvia Plath, and keeps the secret from everyone but her boyfriend. Another, more badly kept, secret of hers is that she is a virgin. This girl believes in living a balanced life.

    2. A girl of Italian descent with brown hair and brown eyes. She wears a black top, black pants, beige jacket, boots and ammonite necklace. She is taking junior English even though she is a senior. She is the classic "smart kid who doesn't like school". She does not really apply herself in school, but often she voices an insight that really impresses a teacher. She is lesbian, and is bitter about her inability to find a girlfriend. She claims the students at her high school don't like lesbians. Cynical and world-weary, she is a barista at a coffeeshop. Even though she is generally unweatherable, she becomes deeply distraught when people lie. Her vocabulary and diction are more formal than those of the other students in her class.

    3. A Chinese-American girl in preppy clothes and braces. She has a conventional set of life goals, often stating that she needs to get good grades to she can go to a good college (she has her sights set on Harvard) so she can get a "good" job in a suit that will allow her to make lots of money to raise her family. Except for her math class, all her academic courses are AP. She is honest and can be counted on to keep a secret. This girl is dating a boy her parents don't approve of, and feels repressed by her Asian parents, to please whom she is overachieving so much. Her relaxation consists of putting hair gel, shampoo, body shampoo, etc. on to take a break from her life as a straight-A grind.

    4. A blonde-haired, blue-eyed freckled girl of German descent who is a friend of #1. She is a follower, and will often defer to her friends. She wears sunglasses eighties clothes, such as jellies, and has braces. A bubbly trendy.

Although he is rebellious, leaving home to go to his job at Grove Market after his father grounds him for making out with another boy, he is very sensitive to and hurt by value judgments -- confrontational people telling him his behavior is unacceptable; inside he is as soft as a burnt marshmallow.

Although he got a 780 on his math SAT, he can't stand his career counselor's suggestion that he become an accountant, because he doesn't want to wear a suit.

He is not very bright. Although his fellow jocks praise his skill on the football field, he is disliked by most of the school -- disliked by the "cool kids" because of his macho, extreme-right-wing views, and disliked by the preppies due to his propensity for beer-guzzling, weed-smoking, premarital sex and general partying.
