Or do they? A man may be known by the company he keeps. But if you take a closer look, is that man really as similar to his friends as he seems at first glance? Well, I've been constantly surprised. I remember this guy who used to spend his whole life in the library, with his fellowbookworms, poring over books, polishing their spectacles and wearing the cardigans their mothers knitted for them. Everyone just wrote him off as a nerd, but getting to know him later, I realized everyone had him down completely wrong. He turned out to be a seriously cool hip-hop DJ star.
I also remember living in a dorm at my high school in Pennsylvania. My roommate, Elena, and I got on very well. I loved her drawings, her writing, her sense of humor. She was artistic and thoughtful. She was also a Goth. Quite a lot of her friends were Goths too, with their black-rimmed eyes, piercings and their different shades of black. The rest of the school quickly lumped Elena with all the usual Goth stereotypes.
