2008 Back-to-School Supplies

Before you head back to school this fall, make sure you get your hands on all the latest and coolest stationery products for 2008!

Pens and Highlighters

The 3M Post-it Flag Highlighters should be at the top of your school supplies list. With these colorful pens, you can highlight important points during class and then flag the page for quick reference afterwards. They're a must-have when you're studying for all of those upcoming quizzes this year. Have fun twisting, flagging and highlighting! Retail - $7.29/pack.


Ditch plain ol' binders and notebooks and go for those with wacky prints or photos of your fave celebs, like Miley or the Jonas Brothers, splashed across the cover. Office Depot sells composition notebooks with colorful designs and funky graphics. Get one for each subject! Retail - $2.49-$2.99.


Make math fun with a TUG rubber calculator! Available in a variety of bright colors and shapes like dinosaurs, fish and suns, these little gadgets will make doing calculations a lot more cheery. Retail - $4.99.


Head back to school with gadgets and gizmos that'll make your school life a whole lot easier. Use the Ativa MP4 player's built-in microphone to record class lectures, review discussions and share notes, as well as listen to your fave tunes and watch video clips on the 1.8" color screen during lunch period. It comes in black or pink, and retails for $99.99. If you rely on your laptop to take notes in class, the Data Traveler Mini Slim USB drive from Kingston Technology will come in handy. With 2GB of memory, it's cheap and super slim. And make sure to protect your laptop with a Designer Sleeve. Made from thick, durable neoprene rubber (the same stuff they use to make wetsuits), they provide shock and scratch protection and display licensed artwork to bring fashion and function together. Retail - $34.95-$40.95.

I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated. It really does help to talk to someone (teacher, parent, counselor, or another trusted adult) about it. If you tell someone what you've written here I'm sure someone will help you.  As for the clubs, you really just gotta go for it. Things are always going to be scary at first but it will get better the more you get into it. And obviously being in a club should help make friends. I hope what I've said is even a little bit helpful! :)
