    If you need self-esteem, DOTA, you can always borrow some of mine. I've got plenty to go around.

  8. Self esteem? More like relief to my paranoia. I have difficulty reading people and knowing what kinds of things are appropriate to say or do in what circumstances. Being aware of that, I'm constantly having to curtail myself and keep track of how my behavior might affect other people and generally be aware. However, I've gotten too paranoid about it...so I end up thinking almost everything I say is "wrong." But how do you not be paranoid when you make wrong moves so easily?

    Of course, part of this is my underlying belief that I'm not likable for some reason. (I've been indirectly punished for my quirks in almost every peer group I've been in.) So yes, maybe a little self esteem might help...
     
  9. I relate. Gah, I do relate. I just want to keep from messing up, ya know? I try to avoid saying the "wrong" things but what do you do when it all seems wrong?

    Probably long years surrounded by neurotypical teenage girls with whom I cannot relate on any level have trained me that all interests and insights I have are taboo and unwanted. I generally assume I'm being annoying nowadays. Not a good assumption to make.

    Not sure whether the solution is "say all the things I'm scared to say" or "don't say anything I'm not sure about."
     
  10. I sometimes berate myself for having picked such a long name :p
     
  11. Could be worse. You could have called your self. Balrog Running Around. Or Snape Hates Infernal Teenagers.

    Peer groups? What are those? I'm too nerdy for the blokes, not a fan of fishing, sports or loud engines. Too tough for the nerds (no, I don't care how good your graphics card is). Turns out I am likeable, witty, generous and sensitive. Have made some great friends over the years but can never seem to hold on to them. Self esteem issues? Hmmm...what day is it?

    Don't mean to denigrate nerds or people with good graphic cards. This is my first experience interacting with others online and I'm still playing with expressing myself in this format. I am funny in real life (funny looking at least). As to peers I feel that this site can and does provide peers and hopefully, eventually, friends.

    I didnt realize I'd be using my French skills this much. I thought I was taking a useless class in school. But now I'm using it to flirt & be all chatty. & I've been using my French A LOT in the last six months. (Compared to the first 15 years post-grad)

    Ok some thoughts: 1) School should make exceptions for writers during assemblies and other large events time wise lol so we have time to write XD

    2) teens should be able to get some compensation if they have a certain amount of school activities so that they don't have to give up precious time for a freaking job that takes extensive hours


    3) They need better ways to have accelerated study programs in highschool. Instead of graduating early what if you had some teachers do before and after school or independent study hours where students could move through material at their own pace and into new classes within the amount of a year so that maybe where a math class might've taken a year now it only takes a semester and then we can move on

    4) Highschool students should create a lace where them and their friends can have study sessions and stay all night. So like, a club house sort of thing with beds and a functioning water and electricity system, where they can study and just stay up late studying and sleep well so that their parents aren't awoken by their studying
