Year Book Club could work, but I'll probably do something were I can do nothing and still "participate", like an extra in theatre, lol. You seriously flatter me though, and yeah, comp battling is fun, except for when the ladder rips me apart x). It's easier to interract with people online, I guess, but I never thought it really took social skills to do so. Thanks for all the advice and compliments, though, you're too nice.
More often than not, if you hate high shool than you'll love college. And don't worry about clubs and whatnot, schools usually offer things that are pretty sensitive to their student's comfort zones. But if it's worth anything, I've always heard that Year Book Club was a joke, so maybe that could be good for resume filler? Shyness is something that people usually grow out of but, if not, than I can guarantee that it will get easier to manage. Besides, admitting there's a problem is the first step to recovery! Shyness is something that can be stemming from other insecurities, but I really don't get that feeling from you. You seem pretty well managed, self aware, and mature. Let me just say though, competitive battling, no matter how silly or childish it may seem, is a great outlet. At least your shyness is being confronted by interacting with people through a computer, which is just as essential in terms of social skills, but not as confrontational. That, my friend, is a healthy coping mechanism. So no matter how detrimental shyness may be in your personal life, you are doing something to deal with it within your comfort zone, whether intentional or not. And for that you, should be very proud of yourself. :)
I hate high school, so much work, and hey, Jersey Shore is quality television! [not, but I still watch it] I'm not well spoken at all, I'm terrible shy, so joining clubs to pad my resume isn't actually going to be fun.
The Jersey Shore is probably the worst... and most accurate... representation of New Jersey. I'm not proud of it, but it's the truth. Luckily, I live in North Jersey, so I'm a fair distance away from that debauch, third-world hell hole they admirably call the "Jersey Shore". As you can see, I don't like it. It's nothing against the Shore or the people, it's really just me. :x But yes, I am in college. And I freaking love it. I took a few years off when I got out of highschool to mess up a whole bunch. But now that I'm financially and emotionally ready to do it, college has been the most rewarding experience in my entire life. In my case, I just needed to grow up a little first and get all of the "Jersey Shore" out of my system... if you understand what I'm saying..
You shouldn't underestimate yourself! You're very well spoken, not to mention personable, especially if you're only in high school. Those are characteristics to flaunt to the world, not to keep to yourself, silly. :) But I'm sure when you enter college, it'll be just as awesome. It's a pretty demanding atmosphere, but the quality of education is twice that of high school. In college, you work for you, not for anyone else... Besides, you pretty much have to try to fail, you know? :p
You're so nice xD, I really didn't think I was any of those things. I'm a pretty bad test taker, though. Jersey seems like a p cool state, though, although I might be biased because of Jersey Shore. So are you in college?
I'm sure you'll get in. By the way you articulate when you type it's pretty easy to tell that you're intelligent, well read, and coherent. But I know how you feel, I'm always so anxious about entrance essays and placement tests and whatnot. That's the thing, smart kids always surprise themselves, and you will too. That I can guarantee. :)
It is a cool state! Way better than Jersey could ever wish to be. I'm glad you have some Massachusetts pride! Heck, it's probably the only state without an undeserved ego. Unlike Jersey where we literally take pride in being dirty. x_x;
Cape Cod, huh? I've heard a lot of stories about it but I've never been. I'll be sure to take a trip up there. I think I'm going to try to go to the Boston Aquarium again before the Summer ends, so I might as well check that out too. :D
It sure is, xD.
If you think Salem and Danvers are beautiful, then you really haven't seen anything yet, go to Cape Cod, it's beautiful there. I want to leave Massachusetts when I go to college [if I go to college >_>], but I'll probably return there after I'm done, since I love it so much. x)
Ahhhhhhhh!!! Massachusetts was BEAUTIFUL. I don't know words emphatic enough to describe how much I enjoyed my time in that state. There was soooo much to do, it was almost a little overwhelming. I had such an amazing time up there. Everything, from the roads, to the buildings, to the history, the museums, the townsfolk, flora, shops, food, everything was AMAZING. It was the best.. it really was. And walking around just taking in the scenery was enough for me. I swear to god, one day, I'm going to live up there. Salem and Danvers are easily the most beautiful cities I've ever had the honor of staying in. I'm going back next year, no matter how much of a tourist I am about it. ;]
I have to admit, I did get a little tired of all the little Harry Potters though. Salem is really exploiting the whole "Witch Trials" thing.. but hey, if I could make that kind of money, I would too. :P
