It is not that bad. Many people give it a terrible reputation because they seek validation for surviving the exaggerated trials and tribulations of high school. You will meet many new people, learn new study habits, and enjoy more freedom.
No it's not....just be yourself and don't stand in the middle of the hallway. In my high school everyone in groups start to separate and everyone just becomes friends with whoever so I think you'll be fine.
It's especially different how we view it on our TVS AND ON MOVIES. Everyone really doesnt get to have the same experience. It depends I guess. Because I am going to highschool to I am anxious and nervous at the same time. but That's just how I am ! I don't like being around alot of people especially If I don't know them. & now that it's really happening it has me asking the same question. I think highschool is really what you make it. When problems come your way with other people , the BEST thing to do is stay focused on WORK in school and ignore them like you don't hear them even if they call you scary I got through it because we go to school to learn & f** what they gonna say! enjoy your friends you have. watch your back because ppl fake in this society and if you make new friends great! AND DONT FAIL !! I know this is long but I HOPE I REAAALY HELPED!!!!!
