I grew up in a military family, meaning we moved every 2-3 years. I hated it but my sister liked it. BUT each time I moved, I met better and better friends. They became friends for the rest of my life. Look at this as an opportunity to make your life everything you want it to be. Join more clubs, be involved in activities, and find the perfect group of friends and don't settle for less. I just know you'll do really well. Spend your summer planning out what you want to get out of your new school and follow through. Spend the first week just watching others and how things work there. Then start picking out the good friends you deserve.

When I moved it was freshman year at highschool, i'm quiet and shy too. I only knew one person there (by extraordinary coincidence and not very well at the time) I pretty much didn't have any friends for half a year until I began exploring my intrests and meeting people who shared them with me

No matter what you try it's still not going to be easy...BE YOURSELF, be real. Don't put on a fake face; Don't say or do things just because you think that's what people will like. Wouldn't you rather your new classmates get to know YOU rather than something you're not? I know I would. If you're not real with them, eventually that will be discovered, and then you'll be sure to be left with no one because they won't know who you really are and they certainly won't know if they can trust you. No matter where you go in life or how old you get, there will always, ALWAYS be people you do/don't like and people that do/don't like you! Don't rush to fit in, don't try too hard. Let it flow, give yourself time to adjust and give others time to do the same. Breathe easy, keep ya head up, and GOOD LUCK!! I wish you the best!
