I wish i'd seen this article sooner. when i went into 8th grade i barely made it 2 months before the stress got to me. I started having panic attacks and throwing up everytime someone reminded me about my unfinished homework. my mom pulled me out of public school to homeschool me. im better now but i feel like the whole thing could have been prevented if i had made myself take a brake once in a while.
im just glad it's over.

next year I'm going into junior high and want to be really prepared. I want to be organized and remember to do my work on time. Also I want to know about stuff like what boys expect and what I should expect about puberty. Please help.
Hey CottonCandyCutie, it’s very good that you want to go into middle school so prepared. You’re already sending out positive vibes for yourself! It may help you to set up a scheldue for yourself. After school you could give yourself a 20 minute break to get something to eat, watch a little tv or take a quick nap. After that dedicate the next 2 to 3 hours on your homework. Take another break, maybe 30 minutes this time for dinner, and if you have anything to study or review use the next 20 minutes to do so. Setting up a routine like this will help you stay on track with all your work. Getting a calendar you can post on your wall, where you can write in reminders for important events will work too. I never forget anything because I jot notes down on post-its, and hang them on my calendar. You will encounter so many different boys in school, so it can be hard to figure out what each one wants. Once you get a crush, spend time talking to him and finding out about his interests, and take it from there. With puberty your bod will continue to grow and develop and you’ll finally get your period. Periods aren’t all bad, and if you have any questions on them, go to our search bar and type in “periods” for a whole list of articles. Hope all this helps!! Xoxo

Every girl gets nervous about the jump between 5th and middle school/junior high. I definitely did. I read a lot of books about middle school to help me ease my worries. At the bookstore, there's a few American Girl books about it, and not to mention GL's book! Jordan S.

School has been really tuff on me. Im really a straight A student but now I've be been getting all B's and I hate it. It's really bad for me because I've been acting out at school ,like I be been sad and ignoring my friends, and not paying attention to the teachers. I've been staying up late for the past few weeks. I've also got so much things to do at home. Over all I've just been slacking off, because all I want to do is relax, but I can't because I' just have so much things on my mind like school family friends. Crushes and it's all just tooooo much. PppLease can you help me????????
