Wanna be on my team??

Myspace....oh Myspace. One thing I never quite understood was the "ranking of the friends". For those of you that don't know, Myspace has a function where you have to rank your friend's list. It is then broadcasted on the title page of your Myspace. As if the rite of passage we all took on the elementary school playground wasn't enough. Now we have to rank our friends on Myspace?? The most hysterical part about this is that you can change your friends' rankings. If someone stole your boyfriend, or didn't go out with you on Saturday night, you can drop them hard in the rankings. I love it when I come upon someone's page and they have rearranged their entire friend's list. I think to myself, "wow, there must have been a real shake-up in that person's life." Even still, it is somehow hurtful to see yourself drop in rankings. Like what, are we not friend's anymore?? Reminds me a bit of high school and makes me think of the days where we all gathered in the hallways between classes hoping to see our best friend or the significant boy in our lives. One would think we would be past the juvenile days of yore, but nah...we are still here, acting like little kids. I can't help but let out a chuckle when I think of this. So, from now on, I vow to never change my friend's list for the sake of not giving back into the 'highschool days' or those ever so distant 'playground days'. It's time to move forward.
