The “In-Crowd” From School Wind Up Worse Off Than Us

If you were a nerd or not in the popular group at school like me, then this article is for you.

According to CNN, the University of Virginia found that the cool kids in high school end up having worse lives than everyone else.

Researchers spent the past decade monitoring 84 different kids, they started when the kids were 13 and checked in with them until they were 23.

And they found that the coolest kids in school were more likely to grow up to have bad adult relationships, commit more crimes, and develop drug problems.

Their theory is that the cool kids start doing more risky adult things when they’re younger, like hooking up or drinking.  Over time, they have to keep pushing those things further to stay cool, and it drives them down a bad path.
