I have a disease called asperger's syndrome which basically makes me socially awkward. I never went to class retreats, parties, social gatherings, nothing during school. A girl liked me, and I had a crush on her too, but I couldn't express my feelings. I know I don't deserve, and have the ability or courage to care, and love a woman  so I was purposely mean to her to get myself out of her mind, and her out of my thoughts. I had a bad relationship with most of my teachers, and I don't really have friends at school. No one talks to me at school, I think its been at least a month since I have talked with anyone at school. To be honest I like it that way because I seem to make people unhappy. Whenever someone does talks to me, I feel very anxious, and it lowers my confidence even though the conversation is pragmatic. So I don't want to attend my graduation ceremony but my parents are forcing me to do so. I don't want to show myself standing alone in the corner to my parents when everybody is happy, hugging each other, and crying of joy, and regrets. I don't know what to do.

You should really go. Honestly, do not think of yourself as someone who "makes people unhappy," but rather learn to forgive yourself so you can be at peace. As long as you learn to be happy for yourself, your happiness will unconsciously seep into others lives. Go and graduate. It has been a tough 4 years, but you HAVE to go in order to set yourself free! :)

It's been a great four years. I've met the greatest and the worst teachers in high school. Great friends and experiences. Now is the time to move on and I'm actually sad to be leaving. There are going to be people I never see again, for better or for worse. Congratulations to the class of 2015 and good luck.

Hey! I finally got accepted to my first choice university, but now I have mixed feelings. In the beginning of the school year, I was excited with the thought of going to UW and my mom didn't exactly say anything about it at that time. But now, my mom has gotten stressed about our finances if I go to UW. She's trying in every way possible to discourage me from going, telling me I don't think practically and that all I want is to get away from her. She even complained and said sh*t about me to her friends. I understand that going to McMaster would be the best option financially and it's a good program, but I feel like I need to put myself in an environment where I'm independent in order to grow up. Otherwise, I'll keep depending on my parents. So now I don't know what to do! I'm thinking of just following the practical way ..

what about applying for residence at McMaster. Thats what Im doing. Sure its a lot more expensive, but you gain independance and still save money becasue you can do laundry and stuff at your parents, get some food from them and all. You also get the Res experience and can meet lots of new people. Its worth some thought!

I had an interview today for a program I really wanted to get accepted to. However, judging by the interviewer, I had no feelings of either enthusiasm for what I'm saying or distaste. I got really nervous and I started fidgeting and stuttering in the middle of my sentences. Needless to say, I have no idea how it went or whether or not I'm going to get accepted. I worked really hard this year to get a high average specifically for the sake of this program, and if I don't get accepted it'll feel like all that effort was for nothing because all the other universities I got accepted to didn't need that high of an average nor as many extracurriculars or volunteer hours and I could have easily gotten in with less effort. I guess the part that worries me is the fact that I have NO idea how the interview went. The interviewer had the best poker face I've ever seen and it would have put my mind at ease if I had gotten a more direct response. The decisions come out next week and I know that I'm going to be stressing about it everyday until that date. I don't want to bother my friends about it because they've been dealing with me since September- first writing the application, then waiting for the interview, then stressing about the interview, etc. I just really hope that I didn't make that terrible of an impression and I get in.

My best friend got into my dream program in February and I still haven't heard back, and I know I'm not going to get in since I'm about 0.2% below the cutoff and I think all the offers have already gone out. She also got a substantial scholarship from them and it's really hard not to be embarrassed that I'm not even going to get in when she's doing so well for herself. I don't know whether to go to my backup or stay back a year and I don't know how to tell my friends and family that I got rejected :(

If it's your dream program maybe stay back a year. It's worth it if it pays off in the end!

Next year me and all my friends are moving to different cities for school and this summer might be the last time we are ever going to be together. I know this is common, but I really want to make this a summer to remember.
 

What cool things are you going to do in your last summer together?

I am honestly so excited to leave my high school friends. I feel like recently the more I hang out with them the more I realise how different we are and how boring/negative/annoying they can be! I've come to realise that my friendship with them is more one of convenience and social necessity. The school I am going to is small and very liberal arts focused and I'm so excited to meet like-minded people! I also have this thing where I am totally comfortable talking to strangers but around those people in my grade that I only semi-know, I end up being really self conscious and awkward around. FRESH START!! I'm still scared of the idea of making all new friends and of getting that feeling that I'm being left out/missing out on things.

Truest crap I've read in a while. I don't connect with anyone at school this year which is insane because last year I was so close with them. I just can't picture myself having the same conversation with them again and participating in interactions and expending emotional resources on people I could not care less about. I cant wait to find genuine people. People that aren't glued to their phones. My school is pretty small too so I totally get what you mean. It's hard to escape them because there's no other people I can even talk to.

Hey guys. High school is coming to an end and I'm not happy or sad. I haven't made any strong friendships in high school but instead got called out for being a nerd and having no social life.  I don't know why some kids in my high school think nerds can't be humans.  I have hobbies outside of school but nobody cares. Every close friend of mine drifted away from me and then I caught them red handed talking about what a loser I am, including my crush.  This caused me to go into extreme depression.  I don't think I'll ever make close friends due to the social and emotional trauma I've experienced.  I don't know why I chose to share this with you guys,  but I feel like I can relate to some of you.  If the people in my high school represent every youth of this generation,  I honestly think I don't belong in this generation. I don't belong to this generation of gossip shallowness and judgement. I'm tired and I want to be free.

Oh my word I needed this thank you! Right now I am just really stressed out because of studying for AP calculus, applying for scholarships and trying to decide where to go to school. Right now my decision is between UBCO or UAlberta for engineering. I really have no idea where to go. I would love to live in Kelowna, but I've heard iffy things about the engineering program there. I'm also really nervous about living in rez at UAlberta though. I'm scared that it might just be too loud and drunk for me. I don't really have a clue about what to do.

I hate that I won't see the guy I like after 5 more school days. He'll graduate, and I won't ever see him anymore. I thought we had a connection, but guess not. It sucks.

Girl honestly it hurts now but in a couple months it won't be anymore! I know it feels like the hugest issue rn, i completely relate, I'm trying to get over a guy too, and I'm not gonna lie, it's super tough. But it's important to have your own values and your own focus on what the true meaning of life is and what you want to do with it--and often after raw and honest reflection with yourself, you will find that the guy is, in fact, not in the picture. Keep living life, move on, you will find that the world still works and that everything will be a-ok :) keep your head up!

I found high school to be ok... I was in IB so I wasn't involved with the drama from the rest of the high school. But damn IB had its own drama. Basically it was nonstop jealousy over my high marks, even though I NEVER BRAGGED or talked about marks ever.

Then I got an early offer to my top choice. I was so happy..... But I couldnt even tell my friends. None of them got an early offer to their top choices. They would just get more jealous. And to make it worse my (former) friend applied to the same program. She is the most jealous and petty person and doesnt like it when other people succeed. So I had to keep my acceptance (and my happiness) a secret. 

But I found better friends (artsy people), and they could be happy for me and encourage me. And after IB exams I turned my back on the IB kids. 

I found out later that the former friend was denied from her top 2 choices, including the one I got accepted for. Secretly I'm happy that I wont see her next year. Im so done with her negativity.

i get you... we don't have IB at my school, but we have an accelerated program which i'm in.  i'm aware my grades are high, i'm thankful for them, but they're almost embarrassing. people in my program say i have it easy or that i have no life outside of homework (lmaoo) or that i'm selfish.  i feel like i can't even talk about school or take pride in my accomplishments around my own friends b/c they're just going to reprimand me for "bragging."  i know it's not that huge & i'm not trying to victimize myself but it pmo.  can't wait to get out.
