Dear Dish-It, I Don't Like My New School

Dish-It serves up advice on adjusting to a new school.
Dear Dish-It

Dear Dish-It,

I just moved to a new school and I don't like it at all. I am trying to get to know people, but sometimes I think they don't want to get to know me. I say hi and what's your name and some questions on what they like, and most of the time they give me like one word answers. I want to get to know people, not like someone I just met... I'm talking about like having fun and laughing and playing around. I wish I was at my old school.

Dear honeychik,

Going to a new school is tough for everyone, even for the most outgoing and friendliest people. Too bad you've had a rough first few days of school, but keep in mind that everyone is starting a new school year and may be a little nervous, which is why they may be giving you one-word answers. Just give it time - making new friends in a new school isn't easy, but it isn't impossible. You're going to have to put yourself out there, even more than you already have. Try joining sports teams or extracurricular clubs at school. It's one of the best ways to meet people who you have stuff in common with. And by getting to know them, you'll eventually meet their groups of friends and pretty soon, you'll have a whole new crew to have fun and laugh and play around with!


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to Dish-It here. Send all of your questions to deardish@kidzworld.com But 'member, if ya hang out in Chat with other Kidzworld members who know ya by your 'username', ya might wanna use a secret nickname when ya write in. That way no one'll ever know it's you. And, just in case ya don't know, Dish-It gets a lotta letters everyday, and she can't answer 'em all. So keep checkin' the column cuz she's prob'ly answerin' somethin' very similar to your question while you're out doin' somethin' else. K? And Thanks! Ya keep her outta trouble. Oh! And if ya've got words of wisdom you wanna share,We'll dish 'em up, too.

Does School Suck?

  • Yes - it totally sucks.
  • It sometimes sucks, but usually it's not too bad.
  • No - school rules.
  • I don't know, I'm home-schooled.

It's who she is and we ought to respect her. And anyway, there is nothing wrong with her liking girls more than she likes boys. In fact, she might even be going through an awkward adolescent phase where she doesn't exactly know who she prefers more.  Also, I think her parents will learn to accept the fact and all of them will be able to move on.

It's quite rare case. If you feel lonely , then you should read a book or you need a clam and quite friend who is good to you. You should take your principal / Headmistress permission and you should go to a clam place which is either Snowy or full of nature. You need 7-8 hours good sleep with healthy foods & you should talk with your friends patiently. Never feel lonely , Your friends are always with you. Carry on your treatment.
