You should be intelligent on how you relate on day to day issues, be respectful to everyone as you would like them to be to you. Avoid being annoying and always be an active participant on the activities that you do in common with your friend and peers. Learn to speak well and be modest as you help others where they are weak, by doing this you will earn respect and you will be easily noticed.
The answer above me sounds more for a very mature adult. I say... act cool and be cool around your friends, be funny but not silly, try to be friends with everyone. The more people knows you the better you are "in crowd". Make sure you always look good and if you are a guy, it would hurt to hang around the girls.
well, if you are ugly and an idiot like me, you gotta buy 'em milk shakes and generally stay broke! if you are normal, and i'm sure you are; be a good listener, always respectful and courteous, helpful and positive, smiling and good eye contact. allow others to be the heroes and have a great sense of humor! but go ahead and be a great student, making good grades and being a great example to others! i just wish i had even one of these traits...
Dear ugly idiot, You are grammatically competent, analytical, insightful, and socially aware of how politically charged the school environment is. I think that is a good start. Don't put yourself down like that (ugly, idiot). You seem to be maturing nicely. Go to university. Find a small group of like-minded friends so your humour can come out to play.
