This thread is for the discussion of all that goes on at/in high school, such as grades, teams, sports, clubs, and what not.
You can also ask for advice about what you think you should do in a certain situation.
Topic starter:Is it just me or do girls hug a lot?

It's completely normal. It happens all the time at my school, especially with freshmen and sophomores. But they work that out through junior and senior year.

Yupp, like Color Me Evil said, it's just mainly freshman + sophomores that do it. I don't mind them hugging, it just gets on my nerves when groups of girls will do this in the middle of the hallway or at the bottom of the stairs when people are trying to pass.

Usually it's done and over with by time you're an upperclassman and you realize how annoying it was to other people~!

Your right I've noticed that it is usually just freshman in my school, I like the attention and the hugs though.

@Reine Blair:I know it is so annoying when you are trying to get to a class and you have to wait until someone's hugfest is over.
^_^
@virtual chatot:Yupp I say keep the hugs coming!

Not just you. I'm sceptical that every girl in secondary school is ****/bisexual because of how much they squeal and hug. ¬.¬;

Word censor for that?... Wut... Okay.

Think thast wierd? Serebiiforums has a censor for pissed
Anyweh no its normal. But hell i see it everyday so i get used to it. I dont recieve cause basically the girl i like likes me as well and it would be awkward if we hugged. Real akward. Last time a girl hugged me she ended up with a broken toe. I stepped on it to hard apparently.

Yep, like what Color Me Evil said, it's completely normal. :)
Obviously, even your girlfriends give you hugs! x3

It was funny, because one of my friends, Jazz.
I told her her that her shirt looked cool, and she smiled at me and gave me a hug!
It was during my last class too, but when everyone was talking! xD

It was nice though~

Well if you both sort of know you have feelings for each other I think you should ask her if she wants to go another step and have a relationship with each other.

there are such things as manly hugs though.

It starts with a handshake, then pulling each other close together (with the handshake keeping the distance in between the torso's), and then patting each other on the back.

Though the way I explained it does make it sound pretty queer.

Anyway, hugs rock :)

Is it just me, or are teenagers like myself being overly bombarded with advertisements?

Recently, at my school's homecoming pep rally, these guys from a local radio station came and spent like, 13 minutes talking about their sponsers.

"Everyone on this side of the room say SOBE!!!"
"Everyone on the other side say LIFE WATER!!!"

And everyone except for me and my friend cheered. I was so ashamed i almost felt like vomiting...

I couldn't tell you the answer to that as I've not yet experienced anything like that.
But my school does have lot's and lot's of banners for vitamin water and propel, and when I say a lot I mean around every single corner, and all of our vending machines are filled with them.
What about anyone else, does your school have a thing for advertising?

Yet in France, it's cool for guys to kiss each other on the cheek.

Staying on point, hugs from girls are cool. Except I wouldn't want a girl I've known for a week to start huggin' me all the time. Would creep me out, man.

As for advertising, I haven't seen anything promoting stuff.

My school is totally insane, I enjoy the hugs but they get annoying sometimes. but me and my best friend Brendan seem to get lots of hugs. but at our school we get a lot of advertisements, I had to help the student council post some advertisings for the halloween dance and I went a bit overboard. I placed it on some ppl's lockers.

It's not really your problem if they fail in life. Just let people have a bit of fun, I don't really do much in school, my brain wanders and I don't really try to stop it, I learn more from what I look around at than five million books will teach me.

Well I usually go on the computer when I'm bored and at home from school on holidays, and about beating the crud out of other people during class changes I'm not so sure because we would get detention at my school.

If that was the case at my school, all of my notebooks would be out the window and then some. Maybe even me, seeing as how I won't stand a teacher touching my stuff much less throwing it [thank you Patchisou for stating out the obvious]. Though, they wouldn't do that even if they wanted to. I doodle in every class; not just math, due to boredom. As for your question a few posts up, I don't really see why it matters. Three days are three days. Clearly being on here passes some time. Seeing as how I don't know you directly, I don't know your interests and what you like to do on your spare time. I suggest doing whatever they may be and just keeping busy. Add some sleep in there too. It's nice to sleep in those days. Don't get up early. Enjoy your time and relax! That's all I have to say. Oh, and eat. Eating, sleeping and hanging around with friends (seeing as how it's a strike by teachers, I don't see the problem with you being out of the house) downtown or somewhere. Maybe the park or something. But, yeah. Keep busy. Though PC may take some time out of your day, I don't advise you to spend such rare days such as the days you were given from your teachers strike problem to make you stay up in the house cooked up in the house all day. You know?

Mitchman
October 20th, 2008, 11:33 AM
Some? I spend 5 hours max a day here! Anyweh all thats true. But if been doing that for 2 weeks while the students were on strike! So what would i do if ive been doing that for 2 weeks straight and bored.

Patchisou Yutohru
October 20th, 2008, 11:42 AM
I'm confused. Why are you asking us what you should do when you're home? That's on your own time, not ours. We don't have a clue what you like doing when you're at home and not online. So you should spend some time trying to figure that out and then ask yourself that. Not us. I mean, if that's how you are going to be acting with two weeks, I can't imagine what you do when summer vacation lingers around. Perhaps relearn some English?

Mitchman

OK then, it's their education they're destroying, not mine.

It's not like they're just distracted, they deliberately just ignore the teachers. Apparently, they got more important things to do by just wandering around the classroom.

If I had a dollar for every time I heard somebody call someone else gay, I'd be really, really wealthy.

Just don't take it too hard. Be it a joke or not, you're going to be called gay at least once in your high school career, guaranteed. But who cares? It doesn't actually mean you're gay. As long as you and they people you hang out with know you're not, then it shouldn't matter. And if you are gay, then it shouldn't matter, anyway. You are the way you are, and you should have realized this by the time you got to high school.

And, just for the record, when you tap another guy on the behind, it doesn't really mean you're gay. I mean, c'mon; how many gay football players do you think there'd be? It's just a guy thing.

Yes, I know. But it's still strange how someone is going to call you gay and then turn around it do that. It's just very hypocritical if you ask me. I mean, I haven't been called gay in a long time and I don't really care if someone thinks I'm gay or not anyways. I let them think what they want. That comment hasn't really had any effect on me since I was in, like, sixth grade and even then it was really old and just about, like you said, everyone was either gay compared to someone else or just metro. If you ask me, the majority of the teenagers these days need to grow up.

If you ask me, the majority of the teenagers these days need to grow up.

I see where you're coming from. But in my school, when someone is called 'gay', they're not necessarily being accused of finding men more attractive than women. They're just being insulted. Gay has unfortunately become another derogatory term, such as dumb, or stupid. I'm not saying it's morally correct, but that's the way I see it. Example:

Fred: Hey dude, let's go to the beach today!
Edward: Pfft, that's gay.
Fred: ... ;_;

In this situation, going to the beach has nothing to do with liking men. Edward just thought it was a 'stupid' idea, but chose to use the term 'gay' instead. Why people think 'gay' means the same thing as 'stupid' is beyond me, but that's, unfortunately, the way things have turned out.

So, when a student calls another student gay, and then 'turns around and smacks another male on the behind', they're not really being hypocritical. They're just ignorant, and are using the term 'gay' in the wrong way. If they're implying that the other student is, in fact, homosexual, then yes, it would be rather hypocritical.

Just read through this and realized that barely any of it makes any sense. @_@;

Mitchman
October 21st, 2008, 08:43 AM
To the normal mind no! Acually i got it very much. Your trying to say that todays gay=stupid and when men call another man gay its not that gay but stupid. So he is not being hypocritical at all cause he is calling others stupid not homosexual.

We do slap eachother but the wierdest thing is it's acceptable for me and some of my mates to slap a girl on the ass, and they don't mind it ;S. We like chase each other around.

Thats my view on things, soughta.

LOl we dont. Yeah its acually true students then teachers. Its a nice system we have. Hell high school is so perfect here. As long as you dont doodle in math class.The teacher throws your notebok out the window.

I swear on everything that is my life that the only notebook that I doodle in is my math notebook.

That is seriously strange, because my teacher just checked our books today and he didn't really mind.
But he is really nice so that's why.

What do I do if my teacher for homeroom absolutely hates me?

Not specifically me, just my class in general.
When some of us walk in for class we say hi just to see if we can get a response out of him, but he usually acts as if we didn't say anything or gives us his look which kind of looks like this "sdigawehylgawrhytk".
XD
But today I forgot my I.D. and he was like "Oh you kids today think you can just get by in life by depending on me well to bad" and I said "So how do I get a new one?" and then he was literally turning red so I said "nevermind it's ok."

Oh dang, if you don't have your ID at my school, you are screwed. You need them for attendance during free periods, to be able to go out to lunch, to go to activities and to take make up tests. I lost mine for a day and thought I wasn't going to make it through school haha.

Exactly, at my high school you need it just to be in the hallways, also if you want to eat.
They are constantly asking to see it, because a lot of kids sneak into my school because it is so enormous and because their friends go there.

The people who designed the school made spaces in the hallway side walls specifically for chatty people to go and talk!! And yet I hardly ever see people in them!!

But other than that, my freshman year so far has been awesome. :D

Yes, i do agree that a 5 minute passing period is way too short. I mean, what if you have to get from one side of the school to another? And what if the corridors are awfully cramped, and you have some annoying seniors blocking the pathway.. It's quite ridiculous nowadays, isn't it? Everything's quite rush and tumble.

The thing with essays are they can either be great or they stink, depending on what it is about, and if you like it or not.
If it is for computer class and you can choose anything you can find on the web, I like it, but if it is for English class and you have to write about the importance of verbs and nouns the I don't like it so much.

Tell your teacher to back off(not really).
That is long almost like a college essay(I don't know exactly as I'm not in college).

... o.o;; what? Two pages is about the regular length of an essay should be. (At least, in my school it is).

Speaking of essays, we have our grade ten literacy test coming up. We have to write a 2-3 page practice essay on 'To Kill a Mockingbird', which is a little bit excessive seeing as the actual OSSLT essay only has to be five paragraphs. >_>

They are multiple choice, 100 question tests and are extremely easy. I always get a low A or a high B on them.

I usually get the low B's on the tests where the teachers will not elaborate on the question that you have difficulty with.

I love speaking in front of little kids. You can joke around with them and stuff.

Adults I am ok with. They are more mature then most people my age so they actually listen to the report.

There's an easy way to solve that, Hackimon: Avoid confrontation. When you sense something is going to go wrong, listen to that and don't open your mouth on problems that you know you're clearly correct on and other people are too hardheaded to realize that they're wrong. Because that seems to be the main cause of most of the fights that occur at school these days. That and rumor spreading. During in which case, the above seems irrelevant and you should stop spreading rumors. But, I'm neither stating nor saying you don't spread rumors because everyone has spread at least one in their life.

Even though I didn't understand what you said, I got the general idea and I'm afraid that all of those people are immature and need to grow up. It's as simple as that. They sure will have a lot of fun in high school if that continues. People there don't mess around and in another two or three years, depending on if you live in the United States and all and when your birthday is, that's something you and those people will have to start worrying about. As high school is when people start to change. For the better or worse.
