High school guide to being cool:
-Read manga and discuss anime so everyone can see it
-Listen to only heavy metal and so loud everyone can hear your headphones
-Wear Iron Maiden t-shirts
-Dress up as your favorite anime character for Halloween
-Avoid every social event for the sake of rebelling
-Dye your hair a wacky color
-Wear hats that aren't commonly seen, like fedoras, but all the time
-Wear baggy pants with chains
-Walk slowly in the halls to show you are dominant
-Be a d**k to everyone
-Be loud and obnoxious
-Fail all your classes

I graduated this year, and I couldn't be cool because I did none of this.
sad

Sex and drugs is to be expected haha. Stick to your beliefs and don't try to act like something else. As people get older they will learn more to respect individuals. Just stay strong and positive and stick with a group that makes you comfortable.

ahh no i actually didn't think u were serious, cuz most of the sh*it u hav on that list is retarded, i was being random, and i was bored so i just wrote anything. But that last part did make me laugh idk y though. But if u really thought, i thought u were seriously then i feel sorry for u. Cuz if u can't tell when someones s**t*ing u then thats really bad dude, really bad.
DO NOT COMPARE HIGH SCHOOL WITH DEGRASSI.

Now, that being said, I love me some Degrassi. However, it is a rather over-dramatized version of high school. We had two girls pregnant at my school, one I didn't know until after the fact as she had her daughter over the summer and most of her terms were during summer. The other was throughout the year and about halfway through the school year she had hers. No one really found it weird, it just was. There was a it of drama around the latter's daughter, but nothing major. As for drug abuse, there is a bit of that. BUT it is generally drinking and smoking, sometimes you run into someone who does more drugs, like E, Oxy, Meth, etc., but that isn't every student. Heck, it is a very small portion of the school. As for drama between friends/people, depends on the group you are in. Some people just start stuff, and if you are that type of person, I am not inclined to believe you are serious about your school work. Generally if you are a genuine person that doesn't cheat. help someone cheat, start stuff with people, are rude to people, or whatever else, you are fine.

Now, I suppose I should go over the Degrassi bit again, as my post is sort of sounding like the past four or so seasons. Yes, Degrassi is a decent representation of high school and what happens, though you need to realize they only have about a dozen regulars at a time. They don't bring in many other characters. Maybe the most is twenty (all of them split into their little dramas). I went to a school with about 1,200 students. All the things I said about are spread out, it isn't the same dozen kids going through this. This is the case of basically all tv dramas. They cover a wide range of scenarios with the same cast. I am sure there must be a group of kids somewhere that has gone through all this, but the majority of schools and cliques will have it all spread throughout the population

Also, size of schools do matter. Mine is somewhat large for the area, so there is more stuff happening. Yours may be about the same size or not. There are no cookie-cutter guidelines to follow that will save you in high school.

i am really scared about going into highschool too cuz ive been in private school for the past nine years. this has helped a lot thought thanks. [:

Most of the people you meet in high school, you will never see again. So, don't sweat it.

Highschool is just a test to see how well you've matured from middle school. If you act a little obnoxious in Freshman year it's okay because a lot of teachers expect you to be that way. But after that you have to step up and be mature, otherwise you won't get respect. I hope this helps and that you have the best years of you life in highschool. whee
These will be the days you remember the rest of your life. Make new friends, but don't forget your old ones. Get involved in clubs. If you are interested in Year book, go join up. You will be at the bottom of the pecking order again, but just be yourself, don't try to fit in with what you THINK people want you to be. BE YOU. be true to yourself!
You will be fine
High school is a breeze. 'Drama' in high school is a joke. Just have fun with it, and be yourself pretty much. No secrets or anything like that. Just get comfortable with your peers and you'll do fine.
