At least I learned a new expression: Hate smoke. Now I just need to befriend some smokers...

Sad: realizing how few friends I have at my school.

Ah well, I'll try and find some more people I can relate with there...
In my experience, school is just a big block of 'why bother'.
Max of what... 3000 kids?
Meanwhile big universities have some completely unsourced number like 30000
That's 10x the number of people, hypothetically!
Therefore, the odds of finding people you like are substantially bigger.

Therefore- screw liking people in school. Study your ass off and don't have friends, and then you can make up for lost time at college.

Ignore this guy. I tried it and it was horrible. Neither studying nor making friends is best.

^ This is a lie.

You can study so hard it kills your social life and still have friends.
I know.
I lived 2 years of this, until now. >.>

Though I am in college...Wherein you should do such if you really want something out of it (well, pursuit of knowledge for me, anyways.)
It's really dependent on your environment and no one general statement can conclude what is best.

Not studying and having friends can be nice too, if you don't really need/want to study.

Eh, from what I've witnessed there's few people who could pull it off.

Nah, just means you've got the kinds of friends who'll stick around even though you put no effort into the relationship.

Yeah, but it's about numbers.
Amount of school friends who are around for life? Few. Amount of college friends who are? More.
And they're assorted according to their degrees, which is chosen according to your interests.
Like Tech? Meet people at MIT.*
Like Law? Meet people at Harvard.*

Just a good idea all round.

Eh? Err, sure.

But what I mean is, you can easily greet other people around, do those tiny acts of kindness that don't take muchly any time at all, tiny snips of niceness or smiles and thank yous at others and even a good morning/afternoon/evening to your friends.

They understand you're busy studying. You understand they're busy studying. And when someone honors their duty, that's an inspiration.

...I'm derailing the sad thread.

So apparently one of my classmates' health situation is so poor that he's going to get individual teaching and won't be going to school until the end of the year and possibly even longer.
And that's kinda sad, since I like that guy, even though he's even less social than me (and that should be saying something) and got picked on a lot.

I just hope that he gets on well at some point, but at the same time I'm kinda worried about the worst case scenario.
Then again, I am a very paranoid person, I feel, so take what I say with a pinch of salt.

You should tell him that you're sad he's in that situation. Empathy can make a huge difference.

Make time to visit him. That'll help with the social-stuff, and saying that is just the least of things it'll mutually help you with. :)
Because..mmph. Being a friend in that time is really...needed.

Visiting him may be hard (this is my first year in this school still, plus I live in a different town altogether and hell if I know where he lives), though...
Damn high school.

I've never experienced snow in my life. Is it as beautiful and as terrifying as it really seems to be from the news and Tv?
I'd once like to experience a snowday and know the sense of fluffy, crunchy, hard, slippery, wet, dry and crumbly snow.
Snow seems beautiful. Especially snowflakes.

Also..is snow, erm, as cold as ice? As in, if Ice is the solid form of water (frozen) then...snow is..?

Snow is terrifying.  My friend from Texas assures me this video is accurate.

Feh. If you live in a place that actually gets snow on a regular basis, it's not usually that bad. :P Sure, if nobody is prepared and nobody has winter tires, it can be a problem. But as someone who grew up in Vermont, which gets lots of snow all the time, we manage. We only usually had snow days for freezing rain. Ice IS a pain no matter where you live.

Managed to slice my finger on my razor when I was rummaging through my bag. Barely more than a small nick but it hurt like a motherfucker and was nearly spurting blood.
