Okay, so I start my freshman year on the 8th.
And I swear to god, I'm going to have a anxiety attack on the first day.
I have no classes with my friends. Like no classes.
And I'm going to a ghetto ass school for mexican, black and gangbangers.
Not that I discriminate, it's just those races that go there, are like involved with gangs, and the ghetto neighborhood, and attitudes like "Imma pop a cap in yo' ass" and "I'm goin' fill ya fulla lead"
I mean, I'm not joking.
Its' like "Welcome to Fort Vancouver High. -stab-"

And just thinking about my first day: I can't breathe. I'm seriously about to have an anxiety attack.
I'm so scared.
I mean, yeah I'm a social person, yeah I'll make friends. But I'm afraid of not knowning anyone in my classes and getting lost. And also not knowing where my classes are.

I really need help :|

heart means everything.

It really is normal to feel this way on the first day of school when entering a new school. But it is okay. I promise. Just because the school has this sort of reputation doesn't mean that everyone in this school is going to be like this.
I am sure there are going to be other students that feel the same way as you. But it is nothing to worry about. The most important thing to remember is don't be afraid and don't get all panicky because getting like this will only make things worse.
If you get lost ask another kid if they know where the class is or ask a teacher. Usually on the first few days of schools, teachers will be standing outside their classrooms or other staff members will be out and about for this reason, they are there to help kids get to their class.

Its okay that you don't have classes with any of your friends, this gives you the chance to meet some new people and get to know others out side of your group. Not to mention you could always have the possibility of having lunch with your friends, so there is a plus.

Always remember to put your happiness first.

If you really feel this anxious, you should talk to a guidance counselor in the school. Explain the situation to them and ask if there is any way you could have your schedule matched to one of your friends. Having a parent back you up always helps too

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the [mome raths] outgrabe.
