I agree with auralee. Popularity is not important. You will have lots of friends if you are an honest and caring friend smile
At least, that's what my counselor told me.

Popularity is a state of mind. You don't have to be the most popular girl in the entire school, be popular in your group of friends if it's THAT important. But popularity isn't as wonderful as it seems. You feel as-if you always have to impress people. In my school, there isn't really a "queen bee" we all just go around in our group of friends and have FUN. But if you want to be the queen bee, get a nice wardrobe, get confident, and approach people and talk. they'll HAVE to talk back.:P

i would hate being popular. I have my friends and I'm good with that. Being popular, you have to sit at their table and cuss all the time. I would hate it

I am the most popular kid in school. Everyone think its just a breeze being popular but sometimes it gets annoying like everytime I make up like a unique style the girls copy it. You have to worry about how you look becasue there are haters that try to find just one little thing wrong about you and everyone thinks you should always be perfect Being popular isn't so easy after all TBH

Who would you even want to be popular? I mean most of the friends that you think are your friends are really just people who only stand by your side so they seem popular. Hang out with the "Not So Popular Crowed" they may seem like losers but really the are the best friends you can have.

Think of it this way.....everyone is popular. Just in their own way. I didn't think I was popular, but I am. Just in my own way.

Hi Jaera!      sisihastwobunnies is right. It's perfectly fine for you to have a crush, but you're a little young for a "love life." Don't worry though! Someday, if it's meant to be (Ha ^-^) you'll find the one who's just right for you. Until then, it's great to have good guy friends -and in years to come if one of those friendships develop into something more, then props to you (:  Future advice: You have to understand that feelings aren't always mutual. You may like someone and they'll see you only as a friend -or vice versa.  THIS IS OKAY.  It may hurt, but that's just proof that you'll have to move on. Something better is ahead,  you simply haven't gotten there yet (: Having patience can be hard, but it's worth it. Good luck! -And I hoped this helped!                                    Wishing you the best,                                             american_brit ^-^

I want to own a pony  You want to own a pony it was dirty and smelly  All animals has their own unique smell and its how animals smell. You was feeling ill so it could of smelt even worse I felt low in the class You was ill and its understandable that you was feeling awful I feel really nervous about going tomorrow for a proper riding day. Me suggestion is to ask the stables for the horse you would feel more comfortables riding I think it's 8 hours 15 minutes!  I knows you think there wont be breaks but there will be and probably about every hour or so.  Dont worry about this. Yay you got all jodphurs and boots and your all set. Me suggestion is go along tomorrow and relax and enjoy it.  Sure it does costs money to go there but your parents wouldnt be organising it if they hadnt got the money to pay.  If you doesnt like it after you tried it then say you dont wanna go again. It does sounds epical though and good luck for tomorrow  :angel

I went to own a pony day but I got the start of a short illness and I was scared and it was dirty and smelly and I felt low in the class but I was oldest on the biggest horse and now I feel really nervous about going tomorrow for a proper riding day. I think it's 8 hours 15 minutes! That's like, school with no break or lunch and four extra lessons! I acted excited cause I got rosettes and lollies and mum took me out for jodpurs and boots but now I feel a bit sick and tight and wobbly even though it was fun on wednesday and I have 3 sort of friends there already and the horse I rode, Bob, was great! Mum's in Wales and having a nice time so I don't want to dull her and I talked to Dad but he said 'don't worry I don't know what mum will think sorry'. I don't want to say no or quit later on cause: I'll feel bad to Bob The stables is just up the road so when I see the owner (who's real nice to me) or the instructor (who's at my school) I'll feel bad for saying no I don't want to join you I feel like mum will be disappointed cause she used to adore riding and had 2 horses and a pony I always begged to ride since I was 3 and so it's been over a decade! It costs cash. Cash, cash, cash. From mum and dad's pockets. Cash.

Ello and Im sorry for saying this but from what you has said so far you hardly knows either of them.  You like them cos of how they look. Me advise is get to know both of them and be the friends first and see what happens if something happens and how your feelings evolves. Take your time and good luck :) :love
