LIFE AT RITMAN
Natalie was as plastic as it gets in High School. Bizarrely obsessed with appearance, social status, and doing trendy things, her focus was on anything besides academics. Even if being able to grasp what she had to learn, Natalie cheated more than once out of unadulterated laziness or for the sake of making some thirsty boy do her bidding. She was absolutely a core member of the mean girls, the popular crowd, the plastics, or whatever people called it. While their influence over some matters at Ritman was obvious, they were not comically evil or nasty to other students. Even if some kind of bullying did occur, it was mostly online and towards other girls that had either actively or passively offended the group. The term 'offended' is used extremely loosely here. It could entail just wearing the wrong shirt to school or having a pathetic follower count on Instagram.
However, Natalie was not the worst of the bunch. There were about four or five other chicks in this little circle of devils that could be considered 'mean' in that comically psychological way. Some of them were more overt and outspoken about things. Natalie was more of the passive-aggressive kind that made inappropriate comments and snarky remarks. However, this mostly happened when the others of the group were around. When she was alone, Natalie conversed with other students in her classes in a completely normal way. She was a bit of a 'bridge' between the sociopathic plastics and the regular crowd, even the rejects at times. However, this tale was slightly different online. Natalie was no stranger to shit on people that did not deserve to exist on social media, specifically Instagram. It was an unhealthy obsession, which eventually turned into a lucrative business.
Contrary to popular belief, Natalie only went through two relationships during her time at Ritman. The first, and most extensive, was with one of the school athletes named Jonathan Robson. A year later, during one of many house parties, Natalie cheated on Jonathan with one of the cheerleaders, Alison Helliwell. The outcome was a spectacular scene and intense drama at the party, as well as several days at school. Being who he was at heart, Jonathan tried to get them to agree to a threesome rather than being hurt or mad. This did not go down well with Natalie, and any and all relationships promptly ended. Whenever this kind of thing happened among the plastics, it became the town gossip for days, especially in the teacher lounge.
The toxic attitude surrounding the 'plastics' thing faded after graduating from Ritman. The attitude has always been there and will be there in the future to some degree, but there is much less contact with the other members of that group that can fuel the fire. Natalie put all of her effort and time into the social media presence, which eventually took a good turn about a year after high school. The follower count skyrocketed, the sponsorships rolled in, and one complicated social environment was traded for another. The 'influencer' world was not unlike what Natalie had experienced in high school. It was just larger in scale, not to mention the fashion and modeling world that came creeping ever so closer. ▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔
Natalie would not consider herself spiteful, just uninterested. If she had to analyze it, which she is definitely capable of, the conclusion would most likely land on Natallie being unfulfilled or shallow. The social media thing has taken a toll on her, mentally and physically. The realization that she engages with a hostile industry that feels no remorse when taking advantage of people or abusing them has surely made Natalie more humble. She has secretly wished for a change in her environment and social circle. The people that she naturally attracts are often unhealthy company. They are obsessive-compulsive narcissists that take joy in character assassinations and degenerate indulgences. However, the influencer business is like any other addiction. It is difficult to get out of it even if you want to. Natalie needs an excuse, any kind of excuse, to close it all down or at least reduce the amount of clout chasing she does herself and is subjected to.
Time after Ritman made Natalie more verbal. She is quite well-spoken, but there is still a clear hint of the old resting bitch-face thing where she does not say anything. Her lack of verbal filter online has spilled into the real world. She can, at times, when pressured, say things that can leave a bad taste in people's mouths. It is not always intentional, though. The real and online worlds sort of bleed together, as if Natalie was constantly on a bad trip from shitty drugs. There is a bit of derealization and depersonalization going on with her, as a result of constant dopamine drowning and the presence of people that are horrific caricatures of themselves.
