Ready to go back to school?

OK, I admit it. I LIKE going back to school, look forward to it, even. And some of our recent posts show I'm not alone. Someone recently commented on the blog and listed her  name as "CantWaitForSchoolToStart."

Summer's great and all because of vacations, visiting family, swimming, and looong lazy days. But a lot more happens during the school year, if you ask me.

What's your opinion, Pink Locker Girls? Are you counting the days til school starts or do you wish summer would never end?

Think pink!

I'm ready for school to start! I did a bunch of great things this summer, but now I want to start school. I'm gonna be in 8th grade and I can't wait for everything that's gonna happen this year. This year I'm going to look for all the things that happen every day so it's never just the same routine at school. That way I won't hate school so much. Yay!

Well I am excited to start school but I'm going to 6th grade. Which means I have to start using lockers to change clothes. I mean, what happened to privacy? And I am not the bikini type of girl. Anyway to make it not so ugh-y? Thx.

I can't wait for school to start! Last year I wasn't prepared, and I was very disorganized. But this year I have everything I need, so I'm ready. Plus, the sooner school starts, the sooner I can see my friends again, and the sooner I can try out for cheerleading! I just can't wait! Eep!

Well, I've had a lot to do this summer so I kinda still want some 'chill time', if you know what I mean..
Also, I've got a problem (at least I feel that I do). My parents are WAY overprotective. Here are just some things:

-They wouldn't let me go to a friend's house by myself even if I asked, probably.
-They won't even let me walk around a library by myself (like, if they're in the building). A library! That's probably the safest public environment ever!
-Actually, they won't let me walk around ANY store/building by myself, even with them in the building.
-My brother is 15, but if we wanted to walk around say the mall together by ourselves (with a cellphone) we would DEFINITELY not be allowed to do that. That's not really an issue though, because we don't have any interest in doing that. I'm just giving an example.
-I'm not even allowed to climb trees. :O
-They literally go EVERYWHERE with us! I mean, come on...don't they realize that if we were in public school, that we would be on our own? (we are homeschooled) Especially with my dad, I feel uncomfortable talking to my friends right in front of him (when he's following me around). I don't know why, but I do.
I hope I don't sound like a brat when I'm writing this. I love my parents, I really do, but I feel like I need a little freedom, ya know?

I agree! I'm TOTALLY psyched! I love summer, but I was bored out of my mind! More stuff does happen at school and I'm excited to see my friends again! My only worry is that the older kids will make fun of my weight since our classes will be really close together. Wish me luck Pink Locker Girls!

Don't worry! It's not that bad ok maybe the first time it's akward The first time you change but it gets better! If you really don't like changing in front of the other girls then you can always go in a bathroom stall, that's what I did the first couple time. And lockers seem hard but after about 2 times opening your locker it's like a second nature

I don't want to go back to school, last year was the worst year of my life! There was one girl who everyone loved but she was really mean, like Hawkfrost from warriors(everyone veiwed him as a good warrior, but he was evil). She would pick on me, and my friends, who worshiped her, would not even care. Anyone know what to do?

For people who have questions about starting middle school. I'm going into 8th grade now and can't wait. For 6th graders it might be tough. Locker rooms can be weird. But you will get used to changing in front of people. Making friends is easy, in you first class you can just talk to the person next you and say something like "I wonder what it will be like in middle school." Hope i can help :)

Girls who don't want to change in locker rooms...
It's okay! Lots of people are insecure when it comes to changing, so chances are everyone will be looking towards the lockers, or at your face. If you still feel uncomfortable, then I suggest wearing a tank or a cami under your shirt. And also, you can always change in the bathroom.

When she's being mean, try to stand up for yourself and not let it get to you. If your friends don't do anything, ask them why later. Also I suggest making new friends around your school. I don't mean that you should break up with your old friends, though, unless they start being mean.

To Ashley:

Relax! Don't worry, public school probably won't take much time to get used to. In your first day of class, find a nice person you might want to be friends with, and ask her how things work out at the school. She can help you, and who knows, you might also become friends!

You're parents are treating you like a six year old, I'm sorry but it's the truth. What is you're age, if you're older than 10 this is completely ridiculous. You should mature, and well behaved, and you're parents should give you respect and space. Parents worry too much, and if you live in a big town, than I kinda understand but if you're with you're 15 year old brother? Come on, seriously! Ask them, I've been thinking, I don't understand why you wont let me go to my friends house. They are nice, and I would like to have more of a social life since i don't go to school. I love spending time with you, but playing with kids my own age makes me happy, and I know everything you do is to keep me happy and safe, so why not let me do this. It's something I really want, so please think about it?
That seems mature and a good answer for kinda strict parents. "no offense"

OMG! Two things, if she is like the bratty popular girl... And your friends like her.. There not your friends. And if this is just a little group of friends, then completely ignore her. Only talk to your other friends. Then if she asked you why you're ignoring her say "why do you care, I'm not being mean to you, like you are to me, if you're not nice I don't want to interact with you in anyway. Maybe if you stop making me feel like trash, we can be friends. Then walk away.

I don't want to go back to school. A girl in my class thinks we're best friends when we're not. She easily starts drama, like if I don't sit next to her at lunch, she'll spread rumors, and get a bunch of girls to think g I'm a horrible friend when im not. I forgot to add that I'm going into sixth grade (middle school) and I can't afford to be dealing with drama. I don't know how to ditch her. And ignoring, and try not being around her won't work. PS. If this problem sound familiar, I wrote a much more confusing post in "how do you know if you're good at something"
Pink locker girls, please help. And if you need more info on my prob, to help solve it, just ask.

There are two reasons that could be why he has a weird look on his face-
Option A- good news! he likes you but is embarrased! he probably wants you to make the first move!!

Option B- his friends are joking around (boys are mostly immature) and he doesnt really like you. Dont get upset maybe one of his friends likes you! new boys will come along i promise! If this happens the best thing to is MOVE ON (: it may be hard but you can do it!

If he's awkward in person try texting him, but dont let texting be the only way to talk to him!

Thanx again Beth.

Some days ago I talked to him a bit, then we had a big fight. I called him something bad and then he started talking like go away, you're annoying. He's used to hearing that stuff from me and he knows I was just being sarcastic. Then a friend came in between and gave some wise advice after hearing everything. My crush thinks that he'll find someone who's perfect, better than me, and I said that I'll have to forget him ( he already knows that I love him) and that he's not the one. He never liked any girl and somehow a part of me hates him now.

However, did I do the right thing, or was that mean? I think I should move on, but it's hard to forget him. What shall I do?

Hey Laura! I am gonna be completely honest. Boys are well, um lets get say they have cooties"
They are immature, and they don't realize how words really hurt girls. There was a guy who was kinda cute, not a lot, but he made fun of me. I always thought he was mean. Then I started to like him, and I thought the only reason he made fun of me was because he liked me. Then I realized his jokes were real, and not "youre so stupid" lol. They were ones that were meant to hurt. Now I have the best friend ever, and he is a guy, we joke around and call each other names, but we laugh about, and hang out after school. Plus he lives 2 houses away :)
Think pink Laura, and don't burry him in the back of you're brain, don't think about the bad times of you're long gong friendship, or the good. Just think that, he wasn't lucky enough to know that he should of treated you better even if he loved you or was just friends. Just hang out with the girls for now, and ask them for no boy drama!

I want go back to school. I like the learning but not really interested in kids in school. Most of my friend (including my best friend but she live right next to me) go to different school districts or are home schooled. Most friend are from my theater but the next production doesn't start to October, so probably won't get see them but once or twice a week until them until then.

However, my school has very good academics and I really enjoy school projects since get to use a lot of technology (ipads!). I can't wait to do American History because I am a history pro. I also want to school start because the choir I am start the week school start and I might also take ballet/jazz classes. Plus, every week after school start,the audition for my theater's Christmas production.

Plus, I totally updated my wardrobe and i been working a being more creative and trendy (last year school clothes were basically solid colored tees and jeans and gray hoodies because it only 2 year since start wearing school uniform after them since i was 4). I went to mall mom ( rare!) and I got some american eagle and abercrombie and fitch clothes! Plus since, i been getting taller and loosing a bit of weight so everybody keeps saying that look skinnier!

So I having mixed feeling, but over all I am ready for something new.

who knows, in middle school you to might not even have the same lunch! but if you do, i suggest not sitting by her, if she asks why or starts spreading rumors, tell her that you sometimes want to sit with other friends. if she still spreads rumors, ignore them. anyine whos a good friend wont believe them and stick by your side. also, you could tell her that if she spreads rumors about you, shes not a very good friend.
