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! :)

YESSSSSS ! ! ! I love make up but I dont wear as much as ppl think I do. doing full make up takes too long but I wear concealer if I have a pimple or something to cover. I usually have my nails done but u dont have to do those every day, just touch em up unless u want to change the color. when I feel like more than that I do my lashes, lips an maybe eyeliner if I have time. having fun is more important than make up.
