High-school sucks. This is the third day I've weasled out of going to school. It's not that I don't like it, it's just because it's so bone-crushingly lonely. I'm coming into a high school where everyone I know has friends from the middle school that's just down the road. I was homeschooled for five years, so once again, I entering the movie halfway through. Why does that always happen to me? This is like the third time this has happened. I used to be so good at making friends, but now it seems like everyone's afraid of me. To be honest, you guys on here and the guys at (yes I'm a fanfiction geek.) are my only friends. Is that messed up or is it just me? It's not my sexuality, no one at school knows it (yet) but am I just a person who is incapable of making friends? I know I sound like a whiny brat, but no one seems to know what I'm talking about. Everyone else keeps telling me, "It's going to get better, just give it some time." WILL SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME THE TRUTH?!!

It really will get better. I

It really will get better. I had to switch schools several times, including completely moving countries between middle school and high school. The high school that I went to was made up of, primarily, people who had been there all their lives and had very close groups of friends. It's really, really tough being "out of the loop", so to speak, but really, it can't get better if you don't go to school. I always felt like I was terrible at making friends, but really, it's not very complicated, though it can be hard. Strike up a conversation with someone, join a group or a sports team that you're interested in. That latter is how I made 90% of all my high school friends (Odyssey of the Mind was the group in question). I know it feels really lonely and strange when you go to a school where you feel you don't know anyone and can't talk to anyone, but not going to school will just make it worse. Just hang in there!

You know

I do that all the time everyone looks at you like
they have no freaking clue what your talking about
and I don't think that every wears off but as you
get older it gets to be more uncommon people won't do it so much.

Don't worry you're just as sane as I am
