I'd want to be decently popular in da and life.I want to be happy when i go to school because ik i have atleast 1 or 2 friends that are looking forward to me too you know?

and on da it just plain makes me feel good to see people say "thats awesome!" heheh :laughing:

A little bit, yes. Relative popularity on DA helps me to get through school and make some money. I can do work that I enjoy and I can do it at home. Without DA and my "popularity" I'd have to get some other job that I wouldn't enjoy very much...
What about you? :)

In both, I value being myself more than being popular, but any recognition for things you do in both is very appreciated :)

My friends and I got into a conversation about this today. One of my friends has been sitting with the 'popular' kids during lunch lately and then starting sitting with my friends and I again today.
He said that they didn't want to hang out with him because he hung out with MY friends and I. I told him that popularity doesn't really matter. He replied that being 'popular' means everything to him and he'll do anything to BE popular. I then asked him what makes a person popular.
He just said that it's the way people act. I replied to him that what makes their actions more special than anyone else's?
In my personal opinion, popularity doesn't really matter in most cases. All in all, we all like to be acknowledged by the people who care about us the most. But getting some attention outside of your circle is good too :)

Huh. I think maybe a little. Maybe not if you're popular for frivolous things like stupid memes, but if you're genuinely good at drawing and you can show your prospective employers that you get a lot of commissions. Ah I don't know. I'm just rambling >_>
