We Answered:

Im in 8th grade. Ive been through it all. And ive learned ALOT!
1. Popularity: Dont be afraid to talk. But dont say things that poeple dont want to know like gross stuff. you'll meet people like that in middle school. First see what humor people use then talk how ever much you want. but dont get in trouble. Middle school is very cliquey. Just be your self.

Locker rooms: You mean in gym. There not bad. i dont like to see people like half naked but just face your back to them. no body really talks in just underwear or a bra. Its fine you get use to it real fast. Its not likie wierd only the first week.

Teachers: they vary, May be nice bay be a total annoying *****. Be a suck up to the bitches. Do what ever you want for nice ones
Nice ones are usualy

Bitches are math and english. for my school at least.

Boys: BE YOUR SELF. and talk to them if you like them. make sure they dont think your wierd first (dont ask you'll just know if they dont want to talk to you)

Organization: have a ruteen for going to your locker it makes things so much easier. :) and just get your home work in that makes **** easier to.

Hair. Down is always pretty. a pony tail, a bun. a pony tail with a braid coming fromm front to back going into the pony tail. it you have bangs pin them down the back or to the side. bun with a braid from the front to the back and going around the braid.

Hope this helped sorry its so long. sorry for the spelling ad sorry if you cant understand some of the hair things.

Ask questions. Although its not the most popular thing to do asking questions will keep you from looking like an idiot in front of lots of people. Always remember to be reasonable in the number of questions you ask though. Because being too eager can get you ridiculed as well.

Always be yourself. Although it may be considered "cool" to do what everybody else is doing fitting in only crushes your ability to stand out. Remember put your own individual stamp on life dont let others determine what you do or what you dont do.

Get involved. Middle school has a lot of activities that you can engage in, such as Band, Chorus, or Orchestra. You can engage and develop a new passion from music.

Keep a book handy. A book is an asset that is very good to have with you. If you are not as socially engaged in school these days, a book will act as somebody interesting to talk to. Books build vocabulary and promote eloquence.

Keep priorities straight. Remember school is for learning, so don't be so consumed with extracurricular activities that you forget your core classes.

Forget the drama. Who cares? And being popular, just be yourself. Wear cool stuff, talk slick, you'll be popular enough. Grades matter so much more though so keep that in mind.

How to survive middle school and be popular?

We Answered:

I was once in the same position you are in now. I felt the same things you are feeling now. All my closest friends from elementary school were going to a different school than me. Essentially, I had no friends going into middle school. Like you, I was worried about not having any close friends to support me and be there for me. Not to mention I was overwhelmed with the differences between elementary and middle school, i.e. six different teachers, class changes, dismissal bells. It was a lot to take in. However, I realize now that I was making a big deal out of nothing.
You are a 6th grader now. The majority of the other students in your grade are in the same position as you as well. Being in 6th grade is something to happy and excited about.
As far as being popular, I would say you honestly shouldn't worry about this too much. It's natural to want people to like you, but if you focus too much on making everyone adore you, you're going to end up in a world of drama and your attempt at popularity could seriously backfire. Remember, be yourself. You've probably heard this a lot, but its the honest truth! Try not to follow trends so much. People will quickly label you, categorize you, and make judgments about you if you do. This could all lead up to a lot of unwanted drama.
Get to know the people in your classes. Especially the ones seated around you. If they seem nice and appeal to you, start up a conversation with them. For instance, you might say "I love your new shoes. Where'd you get them?" or "Cute earrings, I have some just like them." Compliments are a great and easy way to start up a conversation with a stranger.
If you have don't have anyone to sit with at lunch, look around for a table with a small group of girls sitting together. Sit next to them. Who knows? Maybe they'll become your next best friends. At all costs, do not sit by yourself. No one will ever give you the chance to be their friend if you don't give them the chance.
