pick me in collaboration with Frank Wright 2 I've never been the popular kid, in fact, I was bullied a lot. I always had a small group of friends (I really don't like big crowds) and I was happy about that, until it was time to do team projects and stuff like that. I always volunteered to be team leader because I hated the feeling of not being picked by the cool kids (I also think I'm a pretty good leader, haha), that made me quite self-conscious. 

When I got older, I remember always wanting to be part of the cool crowd, you know, the popular kids. I was never able to do it; although I was friends with some of them, haha. In a way, I started to get recognised by lots of people, they knew who I was (even when I didn't know who they were) and, even when I wasn't really part of the popular kids, it felt nice; it was nice to feel like you were chosen to be a part of something. 

Nowadays, with school behind me (temporarily), some of those feelings are back. Even without cliques, I still feel like it would be cool to be picked for something big, something that can make me stand out from the crowd, in life, in my job; sometimes I feel like I'm still that kid from school who's afraid no one's going to pick him at gym class, haha. Do you ever feel like that sometimes? So, it's time to do something about it, just like I did back then: if I'm afraid no one will pick me, then I'll do the selection. I'll create the path for me and lead, lead, lead; that's one thing I know I'm good at.

// Nunca he sido el niño popular, de hecho, era de los que sufrían por bullying. Siempre tuve un grupo pequeño de amigos (realmente no me gustan las multitudes) y eso me hacía feliz, hasta que era momento de proyectos en equipo y esas cosas. Siempre era voluntario para ser líder de equipos porque odiaba ese sentimiento de no ser elegido por los niños buena onda (ademas, pienso que soy buen líder, jaja), eso me hizo un poco inseguro.

Cuando crecí, me acuerdo de siempre querer ser parte del grupo cool, ya saben, de los niños populares. Nunca lo logré, aunque sí era amigo de varios de ellos, jaja. En una forma, empecé a ser reconocido por mucha gente, sabían quién era yo (aunque yo no supiera quiénes eran ellos) y, aún cuando no era realmente parte de los niños populares, se sentía bien; era lindo sentir que eras elegido para formar parte de algo.

Actualmente, con la escuela en el pasado (temporalmente), algunos de esos sentimientos han regresado. Aún cuando ya no hay grupitos, aún siento que sería grandioso ser elegido para algo grande, algo que me haga destacar de la multitud, en mi vida, en mi trabajo; a veces siento que aún soy ese niño de escuela con miedo a que nadie lo elija para su equipo en clase de deportes, jaja. ¿Alguna vez se han sentido así? Creo que es momento de hacer algo al respecto, justo como lo hice allá en el día: si me da miedo que nadie me elija, entonces yo haré la selección. Crearé la ruta para mí y a liderar, liderar, liderar; eso es algo en lo que sé que soy bueno.
