Today was the first day back to school. I don't get super excited about another year of lame homework assignments, know-it-all teachers and crappy cafeteria food - but it was great to see all my friends again. There's a few new hot girls in my grade who I checked out and I have a couple of new teachers this year as well. There's always a good vibe in the air on the first day of school - and it's always fun to hear everyone else's stories and adventures from the summer.

I hope to make some new friends this year, stay out of the principal's office and hopefully make the honor roll for the first time in my life. Oh yeah... meeting a hottie who likes to do her boyfriend's homework would be nice as well. To help you peeps out, I've also come up with a few ideas to get your school year off to a good start:

  • Sit next to the smart guy or girl in science class. You may think that kids who are good at science are massive geeks - but they're usually not that bad and a smart friend can make your homework way easier.
  • Make friends with the cafeteria staff. Cafeteria food almost always sucks - but if you get to know the staff and even bribe them with a nice gift once in a while, you'll be surprised how that pays off when you want extra servings of your favorite lunch.
  • Stay out of trouble early - and save your best pranks and smart remarks for later in the year. A principal can make or break your school year, so try to avoid any major trouble for at least the first month or two. By that time, the principal has usually decided who the trouble makers are and you'll be able to fly under the radar.
  • Develop good study and homework habits early on in the year. I'm no Einstein but I do know that if you can get organized and get into a good homework routine, you'll avoid the pain and suffering that usually follows a bad report card.
  • Hate P.E.? I really like P.E. but if you're someone who doesn't, check out these ways of getting out of P.E. class. They'll be a big help for those of you looking for a way to get out of running laps on cold fall mornings.
  • Most importantly, go into the new school year with a good attitude. Every school year is going to be filled with crushes that don't like you, mean gossip, teachers who are out to get you and nasty surprise tests - but your year will be a lot smoother if you start it with a postive vibe and have fun.
  • How was your first day back to school? Are you glad to be back or are you already counting down the days until Christmas Break?

    Later,
    Simon

    Sometimes we get along all happily. Other times, conversations end with door slamming and yelling. Whenever I try to tell her that we need to work on this, she just says I'm being dramatic. It seems like one second we're laughing, then next we're fighting. She's 20, so the age difference is one of the problems. I really want to reconnect with my sister, but I don't know how. Help!

    Ugh. Usually on Wednesdays, I have a cherry coke t-shirt with some Jean shorts. That t-shirt got RIPPED. D: Anyways I can barely make it through the week. I have a closet full of clothes, but there's only about 8 t-shirts that are nice looking. Hopefully soon there'll be a new clothes store, and soon I'll start wearing my winter clothes, but I need help for the PRESENT. Any ideas?

    I would say just talk to the guy an ask him, but I know you would be scared. But anyway, just take it slow. Talk to the guy, an try to be friends with him. If he shows any signs of him liking you.. For example: He likes looking at you, tries to make you laugh, or likes being around you.. then that's mostly a sign.
