Don't share your GPA with anyone. Its an easy way to lose friends
Grade Point Average
A lot of high schools have a GPA system just like in college. It really doesn't mean a whole lot in the long run, but having a lower GPA than someone else is something that makes a lot of friends stoop talking to each other. I had a friend who stopped talking to me because of that, among other things :/
I'm one of the smartest kids in my class...but evryone thinks I'm mentally challenged because:
1. I apparently nevr talk
2. when I am talking it's probably a question
3. everyone in my class is an ignorant jerk!
I love everyone >=)
Self promoting and trashing everyone else.
Well, this is how my day went: Fot on bus, found first period, enjoyed teacher. Tried to find second period, epic fail. Loved my history teacher she is AMAZING! Went to lunch, waited half an hour to get food. Butt touches the seat right when the bell rings. Didn't eat. Made it to math class, not too horrible. Found Health class, teacher gave me head ache, but nice enough. Tomorrow my fun day begins!!!
Well, because you said
It's been 5 years since I graduated High School so yes, I'd give you some advice. It's a huge world outside high school. Good people can come from anywhere. Be yourself and don't let anyone change who you are or what you like in life. Think positive. And stand up for yourself if something makes you feel uncomfortable, go to the teachers, the princable, talk it out. You deserve to feel comfortable when getting a proper education. Good Luck
I just left High School, and I really can't think of anything to add that hasn't already been said. Just be yourself. Ignore the cliques, gossip, drama, etc. And I do agree that throughout High School, you'll find out way more about yourself than you ever thought possible. You'll get used to the new surrounding pretty quickly, and I'm sure you'll make new friends. I would suggest joining clubs/groups that you might be interested in. You'll probably find a lot of kids with similar interests as you. I wouldn't worry about things like not being popular, not falling in love, etc.. You've got your whole life ahead of you. First days are always at least somewhat rough, but tomorrow's going to be much better! Good luck. And to quote mupcollector1, "no matter what anyone says, don't let anyoe change who you are". You're going to be fine!
Ive been out of hs for 10 years and I'll be blunt I don't miss it or the people I graduated with. Lol.
Figgie, bring your own lunch -- it's easier and probably a heckuva lot better tasting! I ate in the school lunchroom once...ONCE. Immediately moved to the courtyard and brought my own every day.
People who drop their friends due to lower GPAs? Seriously? That's not much of a friend! Granted, many of mine were competitors in the honors/gifted/AP classes along with me, but even in my "average" classes I found peeps I could relate to and vice versa. A redneck kid was very nice to me once and threatened some of his friends who were being rude to me, which won him points immediately from my standpoint, and I very much doubt his IQ was over 100, much less possessor of a high GPA.
Welcome to high school!!!
Looking forward to school tomorrow. I'm gonna miss MC forums, though.
Hope you have a good school year Vincent.
Good luck, Vincent.
Thank you! I'm looking forward to learning German, and meet the French exchange student (who speaks English) in my class.
Sounds like it's going to be a fun year. Are you still going to have time to stop by the forum?
About 6~7 am (UTC+8). No guarantee, though.
Gosh. Well, if you're not going to be coming back for awhile, we're going to miss you!
