How to survive class for the next few months? - January 24th 2010, 12:45 PM

Ok, I just have 6 months left of class before I graduate. Till then,I'm stuck with a whole class of people I don't trust or like that much...it's just a feeling I have and experience I've had with many of them.. it's like going to a stinky shithouse everyday and you feel like throwing up afterwards.. and the teachers and principle don't care if you need help with something...

People lie, bullshit, cheat, they're cold, selfish, big egos, jealous and so on... how I ended up in a class with so many assholes is beyond me..

Nobody likes to sit next to me cuz a few people spread false rumours ..so I'm a loner now and keep quite in class... I think this made it even worse.. people think I'm to blame for something I haven't done...I guess my fault is that I wasn't prepared for bullying and reacted quite weak when it happened.. nobody bullies me now but the bad feeling is there..I'm forced to do group work with these people..

Anyway, now I just go there for class and taking notes, then I go home and do my own hobbies and stuff. People say I should not act like a monk and at least 'pretend' to be social even if people are cold or nasty...but its hard cuz my self esteem is so low right now. Others say I shoud just do my work and forget about the rest..

What is the best way to survive 6 months of hell and reach my goals?

Like you said, just go in, do your work and come straight back out again. You don't need people to sit next to you. I know it sucks at the moment, but don't let the situation ruin your entire education.

I honestly don't think you should pretend at all. Before my grandma took me out of school and I became homeschooled I was bullied a lot the teachers didn't give a flying fuck about me. I would walk into all my classes and sit down and not talk to anyone I would just pay attention to the teachers and do what I was supposed to I only had two classes with friends in them that I would actually talk in...When doing group work with other people(I hate group work just because the people hate me) I wait for them to tell me what to do and I do it. Do you have any friends at school?

Like the only time I was actually loud was at lunch people thought it was tottaly werid because in class I was silent and everything but once you put me with my friends I was loud and crazy but thats because there was no judgement there and they are exactly like me.

I'd say the only thing you can do is what your doing right now...It sucks believe me I know I've been there but hell you're going to graduate soon and I've been told a number of times that collage is nothing like highschool so if you plan on going you'll probaly have friends in no time

I'm really sorry to hear you feel like this, I've found that planning things for the weekends, just little things to look forward to really helps. Go explore a new park or part of the city you've not really familiar with (of course within safe limits) buy yourself that new issue of a magazine you like etc. Just little pick me ups that give you stuff to look beyond the current unhappiness.
You could also plan what you want to be doing after these 6 months, this way the time seems more of a 'means to an end' and not as long as it needs to be.

Good luck sweetie, you can do it!

Well, if you class is full of arse holes and you can't get out, then why not spend your time trying to make them nicer, if you fail just pick yourself up and try again.

To do this your gunna have to be social keep your head held high and talk to them by looking them in the eyes, if they say something insulting towards you laugh as if it were a joke, if they ask why your laughing, say because its funny. Also you can try and steer them slowly to a subject you like and they find acceptable.

You can move yourself slowly into this (like over the next few days start to straighten your back or smile more)

Ah as for yourself esteem, you might want to take part in a few leisure activity, like meditating or watching comedy)

but above all, try to smile more, no matter what.
