Secondary 2(8th) - Oddly Different - September 2nd 2011, 02:55 AM

School started 2 days ago. And, I expected things to be like I left it 2 months ago. But, something is different. Not necessarily Negative nor Positive. I tried going to see my old group of friends, but either I've changed or they have. I feel even more as in outcast as before. But, last year, it was to some minor extent. Now, I can't really fit in at all.

I've tried going to see my other group of friends, because I tend to move from one group to the other. And, they tend to hang out with the "popular" groups which places me in an awkward position at times. The only person in that group that I can relate to is someone more or less like me. Talks in English(Fluent and his main language) and French. So, we usually discuss stuff in English. Yet, I feel awkward when I'm with the group.

So, I can't really find my place in both groups. And I think my problem is my social disabilities in French. It's not my first language. And I am not totally familiar with Quebec's pop culture for teenagers. Most of their jokes come from Quebec's french TV shows and movie that I don't even bother to watch because I don't really like them. And when I tell a joke, I think of it in English than translate it which is simply not funny after because no one is familiar with the jokes and English - Canadian pop culture. I just feel like I would fit in better in an English or Bilingual school.

And at the purpose of this post. Basically, I need advice on what to do concerning these matters (Finding my place, Quebec's pop culture). And I feel like it would make me both a happier and more interesting person.

Thank you, Ivegon
