I agree with auralee. Popularity is not important. You will have lots of friends if you are an honest and caring friend smile
At least, that's what my counselor told me.

Popularity is a state of mind. You don't have to be the most popular girl in the entire school, be popular in your group of friends if it's THAT important. But popularity isn't as wonderful as it seems. You feel as-if you always have to impress people. In my school, there isn't really a "queen bee" we all just go around in our group of friends and have FUN. But if you want to be the queen bee, get a nice wardrobe, get confident, and approach people and talk. they'll HAVE to talk back.:P

i would hate being popular. I have my friends and I'm good with that. Being popular, you have to sit at their table and cuss all the time. I would hate it

I am the most popular kid in school. Everyone think its just a breeze being popular but sometimes it gets annoying like everytime I make up like a unique style the girls copy it. You have to worry about how you look becasue there are haters that try to find just one little thing wrong about you and everyone thinks you should always be perfect Being popular isn't so easy after all TBH

Who would you even want to be popular? I mean most of the friends that you think are your friends are really just people who only stand by your side so they seem popular. Hang out with the "Not So Popular Crowed" they may seem like losers but really the are the best friends you can have.

Think of it this way.....everyone is popular. Just in their own way. I didn't think I was popular, but I am. Just in my own way.

I don't think she's jealous -if so it's not to a point where she's angry with you. She's probably just sad because she's been trying so hard -for what seems like a fairly decent time now- to be a good singer. Having a best friend who is a good singer and is acknowledged for it might just be hard for her right now. *Try talking to her -don't ask her if she's jealous, ask her if she's okay. *Point out things she's good at -not randomly  though... if it comes up in the moment.  Ex: She's creative and good at making crafts. Compliment her. "Oh, that's really cute. Seriously!? How do you make these things?" *Do something fun with her -let her know that's she amazing just the way she is. I really hope this helps! ^-^

Well I don't think I can ask her because I can't really say "Hey are you jealous because I can sing better than you?" That would just make her plain mad at me, she does seem disappointed, if I don't walk up to her and start talking to her she would probably act like I'm not even there!
