You're scared of your generation? Let me tell you, I'm scared of mine and I am the tail end of the Baby Boom. I don't think you'll a more jaded bunch of old codgers-to-be than my cohort. There is a severe leather shortage in this nation. As my father says, they need to bring a little tallow to the hide. You go on being a nerd. Enjoy what interests you and don't worry about what the others think. In a few short years, you'll be gone from them and they won't matter. You're only in high school for 4 years and after that, who cares about them? Your happiness should not contingent on someone else's approval.
