and you know one other person who's sort of a friend and who you could sway to come with you to your dream school. Do you want a fresh start entirely? Do you want a potential buddy there to navigate the waters early on? Do you want a vote if you plan to run for something in school? Do you convince your semi-friend to go to another school, so you can start without their knowledge of high school you?
I'm in this predicament right now and would LOVE some feedback, asap. I know where I'll be going and I'm very glad about it, but there really are just a few people I know who'll be going to the same school as me, and only ONE of them am I more than acquaintances with. She's cool, above average smarts and nice enough to be around, but not my type of 'close friend' as far as I can tell. Do I steer her towards picking the same school as me? Or am I better off with a virtually completely fresh start?
I'm worried about not knowing anyone, and I know she'll be at least a bit popular so that's handy, but I'd also hate to have any of my stupid or uncool moments come bubbling back because of this girl. She also doesn't know I'm gay right now, she'd be fine with it though. Between my school and another school she's on the fence and I know what I say can impact her to change her mind. She lives in the same city as me, has gone to the same school as me for a few years.
Being pessimistic, I'd hate to be stuck in a male wing and wind up with very few friends, or be joining clubs and relegated to stupid positions because for some reason I'm having trouble connecting with people. I don't think my would-be friend would get towed around but hmm, what to do?
