My plant would dress in casual attire but with a don’t-really-care attitude. My plant tries to fit in  but is usually forgotten, so it is basically a loner. My plant takes a lot of classes, and even with it’s don’t-really-care attitude, it always follows the rules (a goody two-shoes). My plant likes to talk and likes to participate. Even if the other plants say something stupid, my plant laughs (softly, not in front of them). It likes to avoid drama with the other plants.
