I know alot of people who try to depend on smart girls for everything. Im very intelligent and boys and girls ask me the answers,"EvEn" the smart ones.They are just to lazy 2 think.

Sounds like me...I'm making it a point to change that this year, though.
I always feel so awkward talking to the "popular girls" at my school, because they all look like they just walked in from a photo shoot or something, and I just feel out of place. When they talk to me, I don't ever know what to say. I wish I wasn't so shy...sigh...

You can be smart and still be cool. I am, i mean i have the best grades in my grade but i'm also really popular. =)

U should just say that even though your smart your not the smartest person in the world. If they keep asking for help, help if you want to, or if it's a difficult question, tell them politly to ask someone else.

This is soooooo me. The teachers always call on me and expect me to know everything. My friends always come to me and are like "How do you spell this?" and "Easy for you to say! You're a genius child!"
by converse_girl96 on 6/19/2009 2:20:23 PM
I sometimes feel the same way. mostly when you get a test back and everyone's like, let me guess you got a 100 when i really didn't. i want to be smart just not geeky. i know i'm not geeky and i'm just as fun as everyone else.
by gigigirl88 on 6/18/2009 5:24:54 PM
I know how you feel girl! I hate it. It's deffinately okay to be smart. In fact, I'm sure you know, being smart gets you really far in life. Tell them "I dont' know everything" or maybe you can try ignoring them when you feel like they're about to ask you about the answer to a question.
by muzikaljem247 on 6/17/2009 12:14:59 PM
Omg, I know how you feel... but like people dont think Im shy. They just expect me to be like super smart. I am, but Im no genius, y'know.
by KimbyBoox3 on 6/16/2009 11:36:37 PM
This happens 2 me 2! Just tell any snob who asks you a ? u dont know the answer 2, just "What a great ?, but unfortunaley, i dont happen to be einstein"
by espitt on 6/16/2009 9:19:38 PM

That's exactly how I am! I'm supposed to be the quiet, shy, super smart girl and sometimes I feel like they expect too much out of me. But I started raising my hand more often and now I raise my hand like everytime and it helped a lot!
First, it's really awkward cause ur not used to it, but it'll be more comfortable later on. U'll have way more confidence if u do.
by celinep9710 on 6/12/2009 9:03:12 PM
omg!!! i know what ur feeling, grl. just b urself and let them think what they want. if they can't accept that, let em go, they aren't worth it (i know, i know, total cliche)
by ChicRavingReaderChick on 6/12/2009 4:49:26 PM
It's hard to be who you really are, I definitely get that. Because when you are being yourself and somebody doesn't like you it hurts even more than if you were just pretending.
by hyperpuppy on 6/12/2009 2:22:34 AM
THIS IS ME TOO! except i participate a wicked lot in class but otherwise am quiet as a mouse.
i can relate
comment on my pro<33
by fieldhockeyballetstar13 on 6/10/2009 11:08:21 PM
being smart and being "geeky" are two completely different things...
by stagebabe401 on 6/10/2009 8:58:08 PM
Oh I had the same problem. Then I realized that if I am myself then they won't treat me that way. Now they know that I am the smart person but they also know that I have a social life too.Good Luck!
Hey girlies I would love to talk and give advice so drop a line if you have some time!
by pupellie on 6/10/2009 3:58:06 PM
Yeah this happens to me, sometimes. But I just laugh it off. ;)
