Hey PC, First off, i just wanna say i luh-v these books. and you guys are so fashionable. all the girls playing these parts are beautiful and they are exactly what i pictured them to be. anywhoo, i am kinda self-conscious. i really don't think i'm pretty at all. i try to wear makeup and hope some cute boys will notice but they never do. i am not as pretty as all the other girls in school who have already had boyfriends. i have never had one before and im making myself sound like a loser telling you guys this! and to top it all off my teachers hate me and i have a d- in social studies. i really wanna do better. what should i do? i also want to catch the attention of some cute boys, but i don't think they really like me at all. unless you have a huge chest like alicia, that's all they look for. i DEFINITELY don't. i think of myself like claire. its not like i could just start flirting like the "cool" girls do in school. they know the boys like them so they act like they can do whatever they want with the boys. people are always making fun of me. what do i do? puh-lease help me asap!! thanks! sincerely, anna r.
This is Claire!
I know exactly what you are talking about!
First of all, you need some confidence.
Here is a list of things that can help you get that:
- Take a long relaxing bath with candels, do a mini spa!
- Go crazy with your wardrobe an try on everything you own, taking pictures!
- Join a club to meet new people
- Stand in front of a mirror and tell yourself "I am beautiful... no matter what they say, words can't bring me down" as Christina Aguilera says ;)
Ah, we all know its hard. The key is to stay organized!! Spend one night getting your folders organized, sharpen those dull pencils, do any missing, or bad redo work. If you don't understand something, talk to a friend, or to a teacher! I bet its not your fault your not doing so well, if you let the teachers know, they can help you, and will probably be more aware of how they teach things.
As for the boys, as ive said many times before, dont worry about it!
If you really like a guy, talk to him! Make small talk, and what his interests are.. who knows, maybe you have a lot in common!
But don't feel pressured. Just because everyone has boyfriends, doesn't mean you have to have one too. If your not ready, don't do it.
You get the idea ;)
Be happy! Be confident! Be yourself!
