So today I was throwing at my school in between periods. I wasn’t doing anything super difficult or cool looking, just some stuff I enjoy doing. I don’t normally like to throw in public because the reactions i get fall into an unfortunate ratio of more negative attention than positive attention. One of my fellow classmates was watching me, and came over. While in the middle of a trick, He said “You know, that really doesn’t impress me that much”. I wasn’t exactly sure how to react. I suppose I said " I guess so" or mumbled something as I couldn’t think of what to say. I was so annoyed. His reaction just painted a picture of most people in my school. He couldn’t think that maybe I really enjoyed throwing. Maybe I don’t care what he thinks, it doesn’t matter to me, all that matters is I enjoy it. What made him think all the work I do was just to impress him? High school’s not always about how you look to others, it’s about enjoying yourself. This jerk could only see one side, the side of wearing what’s in, even if you don’t like it, Doing what’s considered “cool” just to fit in. This is why I don’t throw in public anymore. People these days are so judgmental that they can’t see anything from any other side than their own.
Sorry for ranting, I just felt incredibly annoyed and wondered if anyone else had experience something like this.

Edit: Sorry about that, wasn’t sure if it was okay or not. Thanks for clearing that up.
