Hunny, i know how it feels. I was new this year in high school. I started failing my classes in the begging of the year cuz i was most focused on making friends, but that landed me into deep **** now. Now that i have been absent so much, ignoring my homework and ****, now if im late or absent 4 more times this year then they get to kick me outta school, and i sure as hell cant do that. Also i have hw like 5 essays per day for homework its a night mare. go to some after school clubs, cuz usually sum kids hang out there from different grade levels like a homework club, i know it seems gay just try it. Dont be shy and ask for help from ur teachers, the worst is that u fail ur classes and u have no friends. friends will come either way, trust me, ive been new in too many schools and find it the same hard every single time. it takes a while until u earn everybodys respect and let ppl know ur coolness. i used to be fuking INVISIBLE, until now cuz i got friends and acted myself. dont stress, thats the worst, get on with ur work and friends come thats the most important right now. i remember being new in my london school, for the first 2 months i was a loner cuz i was accidently put into a grade lower than i was suppose to be and so i made no friends until i did all of my homework all the time and finally they moved me up and then i needed like another month to settle in. i would go home everday and cry and beg my mom not to go back to school ever again, but she pushed me and finally friends came. So just be really nice towards ur fellow students and put alotta effort onto ur work, dont stress, and remeber friends WILL come, i promise! Good luck!
