Unhappy I'm soooooo scared! - August 17th 2009, 10:49 PM

I wasn't nervous about going to my new high school...until now...

I was thinking about lunch tomorrow and how I'll know almost no one. My original plan was to just walk in, sit down, and just read a book. I like that. I like reading...but one of my friends said that I can't do that because it'll say to other people that I'm anti-social. I really don't want to seem anti-social, but I need a security blanket. It's already freaking me out enough that I'll be in a whole new school with new people, new teachers, new traffic pattern...

My books are my security blanket! I need something to keep me comfortable and okay and calm...now I don't have anything! What else can I carry with me that can keep me feeling okay that I can stick in my bag or pocket??? Any ideas?

I want a moment to be real
Want to touch things I don't feel
Want to hold on, and feel I belong
And how can the world want me to change?
They're the ones that stay the same
They don't know me, but I'm still here

Aww. It's the day after you posted this, so you should be just about to head to high school. Don't worry, it's totally not as scary as it seems! As for lunch, you'll have a whole class before that that you'll go to lunch with. While you're in your lunch class, make friends and find someone that you'll sit with. You can do it, really. As for reading books, who cares if you sit down and want to read? There are tons of people at my school that go find their own tables to study, so I don't see how reading would be any different. However, if I were you, I would try to find a couple of people to sit with each day that you enjoy socializing with, since that's really the only part of the day where you can have long, good conversations without getting in trouble.

Books are cool. And no worries, you're going to do just fine. Let me know how it goes. (:
