THE GIRLS EVERY GANG NEEDS
Behind every kween is her strong squad.
You probably met your mates in pretty random places: on the bus, lining up for a 5SOS gig or when your teacher forced you to sit together… but the fact you’re still friends, well, that’s no accident. Every group needs a mix of personalities to make the dynamic work. Just think: if everyone in your gang was exactly the same, you’d have the same taste in guys and that’s just plain awkward! If your squad has any of these types in any combination, you’re onto a good thing…
You love teasing her when she squeals over any of the following: spider sightings, her hair getting splashed at the swimming carnival and her squeaky-clean white Converse getting dirt on them. She’s a little bit precious and tbh a little bit spoiled, but you love that she won’t stand for anything less than perfect. She’ll send back that Macca’s cheeseburger if it doesn’t have a pickle on it. She’ll tell people off if they are disrespectful to her or you. Because she’s a kween, ya hear?!
There’s no situation this friend can’t make better with her comedy skills. The comedian of the group is there to cheer peeps up when they are feeling down and make drama disappear with a sassy one-liner – the laughter she brings would be missed if she weren’t around! Sometimes it’s hard for the group’s resident goofball to get serious, which doesn’t help when you actually need someone to listen to you vent about that fight you had with your BF. That’s where the next friend comes in…
This pal is the one who calms down awks situations, provides the shoulder for everyone to cry on, and has a pretty level head in times of crisis. It’s hard to believe you guys are the same age because she’s wise beyond her years and always has the best advice. But it can be really exhausting playing the role of the carer in the group and worrying about everyone else as well as yourself, so make sure you’re always there to listen to her problems, too.
THE FREE SPIRIT
She doesn’t know her Ezria from her Haleb and has no feels about 1D’s hiatus… sometimes it feels like this friend is on her own wavelength! She doesn’t follow the crowd, steers clear of drama and some of her hobbies are a little offbeat – she’s an individual. Finding your own path is sometimes tough, but this girl has it nailed. She proves it’s our quirky parts that make us unique. #beyourself
She may be quiet and bookish or a loud know-it-all, but you’ve gotta love the brains of the operation. She’ll probably correct your grammar on a daily basis but your group’s resident Hermione is brimming with knowledge about eeeeeverything, from that pesky maths question you can’t wrap your head around to the actual reason boys are so annoying (they mentally mature later than girls, obvs!). How does all that info fit in her head? Don’t question it – this girl’s level of genius can’t be explained.
THE WILD CHILD
We’ve all got that one mate who seems to be able to convince us to do really random and crazy stuff. One minute you’ll find her trying to pinch a life-sized Liam Hemsworth cardboard cutout from the cinema, the next she’ll be attempting to convince you those silver sequin pants would be a great investment. Cringe! This gal can’t be tamed (just call her Miley). But it’s cool to have a buddy who helps you get out of your comfort zone occasionally – it makes life exciting!
THE BIT- OFEVERYTHING
There is most likely a member who doesn’t fit into any of these categories because she is your gang’s all-rounder! She’s funny but not the resident clown, she gives smart advice, has a wild streak and more than once she’s been the shoulder you’ve cried on. Having a little of each personality means she gets on with pretty much everyone – which means when there is any kind of drama, she’s usually the voice of reason. Throw up your *praise hands* for this girl.
