i try to be. in a way i emulate ian. i try really hard to act cocky about school sometimes and make fun of ppl. only i do it as a joke. lol
from an 813 phone number

This starts out as a really honest, soul-searching text that actually provides some insight into the minds of the "popular" kids... but that "lol" at the end undermines the whole thing. Is 813 lol-ing because she doesn't want her words to be taken as pure honesty because she fears people 'really' knowing her? Or is she lol-ing at the idea of making fun of people because she is callous and heartless? Have modern teens lost the ability to have heart-to-hearts IRL and instead have to communicate their psyches via 160-characters texts?
