modmodmod I'm starting Middle School soon and I'm so scared! I'm afraid Ill get lost or forget my locker combination! How can I calm myself down? Please help!
Hey girl! Remember- everyone in your class will be starting school with you, so chances are, you aren't the only person worrying about it! If you can, head to the school a day or two before classes start to get the lay or the land a little- grab your BFF and explore. Check out where your classes will be and where the cafeteria is. As for your locker combo- figure out a place you can write it down where you know it won't get lost- maybe in your planner or on the back of your schedule. Trust me- once you go in your locker a few times a day for a week or so, that number will stick with ya the rest of the year! xoxo

Thanks Lauren! I really appreciate the advice. I'll totally tell him that if he asks me out again, and I'll make sure not to lead him on. Thanks for your help!

I have or am all of those except the bgf. There's a boy in my homeroom who I get along with and everything, but my friends keep saying that we should go out and the more they say it, the more weird is it. What should I do???

haha my bgfs are amazing.. they r the kind of people who dont care what others think and i can tell them anything and they help me out and never bring the situation up again... one time they even yelled at a girl because she was being a brat to me haha gotta love your brothers!

I am the exact same as you! I am 13, a little shorter than you, and have size 11 feet. I hate it! And its not just that, but my feet are SUPER wide. so i cant really wear many sandals without making them look gross. So feel blessed if you just have long feet!

Love the article, Girls Life! I probably wouldnt be able to survive without my bus buddy. In the morning she is not always there, but in the afternoon she always helps me talk out my problems worries or concerns, so I go home happy and relaxed!

I'm not going to be friends with someone just because they're smart or good at sports.
by fencergirl97 on 8/2/2011 9:19:48 PM
well, this year i am gonna hang out with no gossipy, back stabby girls. i am sick and tired of them. this year is going to be a new start for me! new friends, i made an oath to myself to not gossip. i have made too many mistakes last year. my advice is; dont gossip please! and dont try to be someone you're not. i have been there and back and i have learned a lot. i lied. and i feel horrible. just don't girls! sorry it might sound cheesy!
by <3luvlife<3 on 8/2/2011 9:12:54 PM
Okay, admit it: Life isn't cake. And sometimes, you need some chica to chica advice.
Well, I'm your girl. I give advice on everything. And yes, this includes the topic you're wondering on.
So if you don't know what to wear that weekend, what to tell that guy, or how to fix that family problem, contact me
Holla! Peace out.
by naturallywonderful on 8/2/2011 7:56:12 PM
This is just my opinion, but I don't like this because I feel like it's saying that the only reason you should befriend someone who's super-smart or a bit of a "geek" is because they have something to offer you, like homework or tech help. You shouldn't make friendship a business deal, and that goes for everyone. Make friends with someone because you actually like them-- don't seek out stock characters and stereotypes because you think they can give you something you want. That's just plain mean.
by lip_gloss12 on 8/2/2011 5:29:55 PM
i have so many different types of friends! but the first month back i definitely need a fashionista and a chill chick
by fallsb-ball on 8/2/2011 3:12:42 PM
I have so many different kind of friends. It's really nice, let's you see point of views from everyone
by topchef88 on 8/2/2011 1:43:25 PM
I have two bffs, otherwise all my friends are not me. My friends are awesome, but my first bff- someone who can listen though she is much better at talking. My second bff- is the neighbor boy who lives aacross the street(He tells me and my other bff who all the guys like). At school last year there was this one boy and he was all my best friends (including me) best friend.
by Nealemk on 8/2/2011 12:41:20 PM
Hey girlies! Just wanted to let you all know that like caitlingirl1997 my BFF is my BGF! its true when u get a real BGF u can talk to each other about anything & ull always be there for each other. but the most important thing to remember when seeking out a BGF is exactly that- you want a friend, not a boyfriend! dont forget that! if u fall for him then still be friends but seek out another guyfriend that u dont like- and if ur one of those girlies who falls for half the guys in homeroom, try talking to the girls in ur group about your little "guy prob". theyll be happy to help u narrow it down to just 1 or 2 guys to crush on. when trying to make friends with a guy remember not to flirt but to just be friendly & be as helpful as possible (guys usually aren't into helping each other out w/ assignments & girls, so he'll be way grateful for your help!). when u do become friends, ALWAYS remember that even if ur BFFs u still need girlies & he still needs his guys! hope this helps! <3
by sparklysydafrid on 8/2/2011 8:54:27 AM
My BFF is also my BGF....yep, my BFF is not a girl...so if you guys are looking for a BFG but you find it difficult...first realize that wearing a pound of makeup and talking to him about boys is not how you start out. Eventually if you become super duper good friends...like my BFF and I, he can talk to you about girls and you can tell him about all the cute guys..no problem, no weirdness. Just start talking and if you end up sharing intrests ask him to sit with you at lunch, or be your social studies partner, just keep the convos going and eventually he might think you're kinda cool too!
