Original piece here: https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/190251/version/384984 Thanks to beth r. for the prompt!

if school subjects were teenagers (response to beth r's prompt)

March 26, 2021


Music: He would always wear a suit and tie, neatly combed back hair and always go for the healthy option in the cafeteria. He'll randomly hum classical music at any given opportunity, and will try to impress people with his musical knowledge. "Did you know there are 7 notes in an octave, but if you count all the sharps and flats, there's 12?"
PE: He wears oversized sweatshirt, baggy gym shorts and sneakers he should have dumped a year ago. He tries to be cool, but no one really likes him. Usually gets straight D's. After all, PE isn't a real subject anyway. "Yes it is!"
Drama: A weird mix between nerdy and cool, Drama wears bright colours that really make her stand out (two high pony tails, tie-dye shirts, and knee-high converse) and she loves nothing more than hanging out with her other "nerdy" drama friends. Usually does pretty well in tests, but does get distracted talking to her friends. "No way! Hamilton is soo much better than HSM!"
Science: Wears predominantly white. A red-head with lots of freckles and glasses. Very smart, but talks through his nose. Usually quiet, but can get quite excited on the properties of the periodic table. "Gold's melting point is 1,064 °C not 1,065°C!"
Art: Comes to school in a different outfit every day. Usually some DIY test that turned out amazing but when anyone else tries it, it looks like a hot mess. Semi-popular, she has long brown hair (that is usually covered in paint) and sparkly green eyes. Vegan and has a crush on Languages. "What do you mean I have something in my hair? I painted it rainbow on purpose!"
Languages: Very colourful, he wears a lot of Hawaiian style tees and ocassionaly rocks a grass skirt. Quite popular with the ladies, bringing out cheesy catchphrases like "Hola señorita" and "Tu es vraiment belle!" All the guys hate him, but he doesn't care. Usually flukes his way through his assignments, and doesn't do his homework, but then awes his teacher by his perfect French/Spanish/Italian which they can't understand but think is hot. "Oh non! Je suis desole, mon brilliant professeur, mais mon chien a mange mon devoir!" (Oh no! I am sorry, my brilliant teacher, but my dog ate my homework!)  
Stereotyping at its best.

    This is brilliant. And being a theater kid who often wears tie-dye and pony tails to school, I can confirm that it is also very accurate.

    Ok, time for another round of the Peer Review club! I know, it hasn't been two weeks, but I have gotten so many new recruits I figured I should do a new round with the new members and then we can start on a somewhat normal schedule with this. :) So, please visit this piece: https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/225472/version/475763 and leave a comment including between 1-3 pieces to be reviewed! If you don't have any to be reviewed, please let me know still so I can make sure everyone saw this. I will compile a list of all the new assignments for reviews, and leave you another comment with the link to that post. Thank you in advance! And as always, happy reviewing! XD

    Music would also avoid diary products before a performance. They make mucus thicker.

    The only French I recognized was "mais" et "mange"
    Is it really a surprise that mange is the easiest word for me to remember? I love food.
    If I was one of those subjects, I would be Music, because I hum a lot or sing. I'm not eccentric enough to be art, or precise enough to be science. Language, well that's my ego. Drama, I'd like to say I'm a mix of nerdy and cool, but that's my ego. P.E., well I care about my clothes at least a little.
