I was 16 years old and sitting in a media studies class sitting next to my friend. My friend has nothing to do with this story, but I was sitting next to him. We were watching this teen movie — The Breakfast Club, and learning all about stereotypes. There were 5 and they were tired and outdated, but good to watch in the films from the 80’s.
I got bored as I often did and I turned my attention to something far more interesting than watching random character’s on screen — creating my own random characters. I started with the five stereotypes and began to add more detail from there.
