Popularity is highly over-rated. Life's to short to worry about how many people like you. This is also true. Just don't wear a lightsaber on your belt to school unless it's Halloween, and you'll be just fine. Your main goal right now should be to survive til graduation. Think of it as a short term prison sentence for not having solved the world's energy problems while in 5th grade. OK, so I have a dim view of the world. LOL. I'm probably the worst person to get high school advice from, actually. I was up til 5am every night working on the immense amount of homework I always had on top of being a member of every extra-curricular activity (except band...band kids creeped me out -- my apologies to any ex-band kids here), and slept through most of the day. Soooooo...I'm still not 100% sure of what it was really like cuz I was always tired and half asleep. I remember my last classes of the day -- art, physics, and chemistry, and flunked out of Calc cuz...it was at 7:45am.
