I was a freshie last year.
DONT SLACK! I fucked up my GPA this year because I didn't do any of my work.
Whatever you do DONT get involved with drama. I mean you shouldn't anywhere but your first year in high school don't get involved.
You will lose friends once you get to high school Everyone does. Don't let it get to you. It destroyed me when I lost my friends but then I made new ones and realized that the ones I lost where never my friends in the first place.
My friend says Stay away from senior boys! They all assume you want the D.
Just stay onto of you're work and everything. If you're planning on going to college you cant afford to fail any class. Don't be afraid to admit to a teacher that you need a little extra help. When you take notes, take detailed ones because most of it is right from your test. Don't cut corners, the more work you do the easier it is to understand.
And number one for you Lizzi.
No roleplaying durning school.

I go to a middle school. 6 through 10. So we don't have senior boys. (:

And hey! I usually only roleplay when my teachers let me, or if I'm done with my work.

And I've never gotten involved with drama on purpose. But if someone is spreading crap about me, I stop it.

None of the boys I know have tried anything with me, so they must be hiding it really well.

"Stay away from seniors; they all assume you want the d."
Lies! There are plenty of sophomores and juniors that assume you want the d, too.
Example: Last school year, when I was in eighth grade, a senior (he is now graduated) and a sophomore (he'll be a junior) both wanted me to send them nudes. Granted, one of them was attractive and I had a crush on him (I did NOT send him nudes though. And I'm talking about the sophomore, if you were wondering), but that's beside the point.

Anyways.

I recently went to freshman orientation (by recently, I mean this past Tuesday) and they gave us tips like:
-Don't trust seniors for directions. They'll tell you a class is in the basement or on a floor that doesn't exist. (There's a huge joke in our school about there not being a third floor, lol.)
-Suck up to your teachers. Like legit, even if you don't like them, be nice to them and whatnot because at the end of the day, they have power over your grades.
-Use staircases that most people don't use. (If you have more than one floor, that is.) For example, at my school, there are the main staircases (they're off The Commons, and there's one leading up to each side of the floors) and there are back staircases. Well, the back staircases are at the end of the math and english halls, so most people don't use them.
-Do NOT stop in the middle of the hall for pretty much no reason ever. People will murder you.

And there's just a bunch of obvious things like that that if you follow, you'll have an easier time.

Also, there are TONS of videos like THIS one that you can watch that have useful tips. Like seriously, just search 'tips on surviving high school' or any variation, really.

On another note, I start school on Tuesday (the 7th). Bleh, freshman. Sad

I'm pretty sure those two covered almost everything, but I do have a pretty important tip. Now I don't know if this will even apply to your school, but if you have counselors, or anything like that, just someone who can change your schedule for you. Then if you're stuck in classes with someone you don't particularly like, or just with dumbasses, seriously, GO TO YOUR COUNSELOR and get switched. Even if that means going into harder classes. I didn't do that and I regret it soooo much.
AND SERIOUSLY THOUGH NO RPING IN CLASS.
Even if you aren't doing anything else, it's going to be a huge distraction for you.

If I don't roleplay at least once during my school day, I'm not joking when I say I'd go mad.

Well then do it during lunch or something? I mean, future-wise, high school is way more important than middle school. You can't afford to have distractions and to not pay attention. You'll be seriously lost lol.
I really don't think you'll go mad, though. It's not going to be necessarily easy, but just remind yourself that when you get home you can RP all you want to.

My school is pretty strict on what they'll change your classes for. Like if you need an elective changed, you can SOMETIMES change it at the beginning of the year (like me, it'll get changed because it's an instructor approved class, meaning they pick who's in it, and the instructor will get me in it). And if you want to be in honors but didn't sign up for it. I swear, if my english class is filled with people I hate, I'm getting switched to accelerated english, because I can.

AND NO RPING IN CLASS. DO IT ON A BREAK OR SOMETHING. I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU FAILING 9TH GRADE.

My school is pretty strict too, but it's worth upgrading or downgrading a class to get out of seeing certain people sometimes.

& I AGREE WITH JENNA.
