I started high school two weeks ago, and I like it so far. I don't love it, I don't hate it either. Depending on what you want to make of yourself in life, you could either just go with the flow if you want to be a garbage man, or if you want to be something, like I want to be a commercial air transport pilot, I'm doin my best in all my classes. As for me, doing good in school has its downfall, my social life, or lack thereof. I only met two new people, both because they sit next to me in classes, and no girlfriend, and I've given up on that, since I agree with what my parents said, "Your class is way too young to date, and that's why you cannot until you are 16." And they are right with that. Of course, as I have always before, I've become friends with my teachers, principal, and vice-principal (hehehe, now I have references for college). I'm very mature for my age, I have never been to a wild party, or to the mall with friends, I never had any interest in doing that, but now it's too late and I regret never being like that, but I was always different, a "social outcast" in regards. Of the three people I know, and consider friends, two of them don't even share my lunch block, and the other one sits at a table with his 20 close friends. I've gone to my guidance counciler aqbout this, and she was stumped, she goes "Well, I can see what you mean, but try and make the best of it by sitting with people older than you, and eventually they might get to know you better."
So, if a trained, professional, certified social worker, with a degree in psychology can't figure me out, you know I got a problem.
But, other than that, I really enjoy high school. I just wish i could enjoy the social functions more...

KCLE, you sound depressed. And do you mean to tell me after all of that girl help we gave you in the past, you are just giving up? I hope that is just temporary. At least try to make some friends that are girls.
As for me, I am currently a Junior in high-school and having the time of my life. I am in NO hurry for high-school to end right now. I am also currently in all Advanced Placement classes and enjoy a very successful social life with it. To all of you, including KCLE, dont think taking smart classes will make you anti social. All it will do is make you more successful in life. HAVE FUN IN HIGHSCHOOL!

High school...3 years I could have done without. But it made me a communist, and for that I am eternally gratefull. I say live the high school years like a madman(or woman) and enjoy every minute. But still try to focus on getting some work done. And Kcle I don't ever want to hear a man say they are giving up on girls! Then again more for the rest of us!

Damn Kcle, I was about to post about how fun HS was & I was all happy remembering all the good times until I read your post, now I'm too depressed to think about anything. You need to learn to accept yourself for who you are & not "wish" you had done things differently. As for your age w/ no girl -- I was 16 & a Sophomore before I had a serious girl & I was a junior before got any & I turned out okay, I guess. You act like you wasted your life away... there is life after highschool. If you are a smart "clean" kid that doesn't party & stuff look for a girl like that, there are many. Or go to one of them parties & look for the chicks by the keg, that works even better, but they probably won't talk to you after that night. Anyhow, giving up is a very stupid thing to do. Ignore your parents, I have said before that they don't know shit & if you listen to them you will be left out. I have a feeling the only reason you can't get a girl is because you don't think you can... change that ASAP & you will be fine.
Boeing in pdx, Good luck buddy! Everyone already covered the advice stuff so I will just wish ya the best. Keep us updated on how it goes!

Kcle....dude....you sound just like me when I was your age. Don't worry about it. Try to be yourself....some of the coolest people in your school will be the biggest losers as adults. That's the way it was in my experience. Me, and this one kid who was more of a loser than me, are both airline pilots and have great lives today.
Girls...Girls are a pain in the butt and not worth the effort. But since you're not gonna listen to me because of the raging hormones thing...I'd say don't try too hard or have super high expectations. You are in a "target rich environment" to quote a phrase from TopGun....it will happen when the time is right...don't force it.
Anywayz....feel free to e-mail me if you want to chat.
