I'm starting middle school tomorrow and I'm really stressed out. Hardly any of my friends except my cousin are going and I'll have to make new ones. Help!!

My first day was great I was terrified but I made new friends by being myself. So just be YOU.

Just make eye contact with people and smile. Nothing too exaggerated , like a big grin, so it doesn't look like you're trying too hard to have friends. If you see someone that could be interesting, try to grab a seat next to them. Don't go all out to get friendly with the most popular ones. Too cliquey.

You should get to lunnch first so you can have people sit by you so you do not have to sit by them akward like, and get to your classes first.

Just be yourself and say hi to everyone. Make a good first impression. Its just like any other grade but you learn more complicated stuff. Dont be stressed. There is no reason to be stressed, stay calm.

Ok it's not that hard or scary some people just make up myths to get you scared. This is all you really need to do always pay attention, be yourself when trying to make friends. Always try to look your best. If you think you can manage more go get you a boyfriend!!
GOOD LUCK!!

Defiantly join a club, activity or play sports. The easiest way to make friends is to have a common interest from there friendships develop organically. I enjoyed being on student council and always helps for teachers to view you as a good kid. Best wishes!

Smile :) it's not that bad. I'm in 8th grade now so I consider myself experienced ;) try to stay out of drama as much as possible and STUDY AND DO YOUR HOMEWORK!!!! Doing homework actually helps your grades more than you think..and don't be scared of a strict teacher. He or she is only strict because they're preparing you for high school. Don't be so nervous because its not that bad..keep your head up!
