... why smart, chill girls in my historically awesome 2nd period class keep getting into horrible fights with other girls in the cafeteria right after class ends. I heard some smatterings of a myspace thing as the kids filed out, and I guess I should have followed up with it, because no more than five minutes later I hear an all-points bulletin sending security down to the cafeteria. Later, I learned it K, a smart cool girl who I never would have imagined would be in a fight. This is the second time it's happened this month. The other time was with another bright young woman in the same class.
I feel like that class, in particular, has such a different rhythm than a lot of my classes during the day. Very studious and wonderful, full of really nice and respectful kids who do well. Eight A's last quarter, which is unheard of for me.
Then they turn into beasts in the cafeteria, apparently.
(Actually, all the evidence I hear is that the other girl came over and decked her in the face, so she fought back. I hear she didn't want to be involved at all.)
