Friend Time!

We've all had the feeling. There's always that special friend in your life, but have you ever wanted more? Or maybe you need a new one, because you feel left out. Sometimes it's nice to be in a group. But with so many cliques at school- techy, fashionable, cartoony, plain mixed- it can be hard. Some groups don't even accept new members. But think about it! Sometimes you just need to think about how you're going to go about it.

1. Think about the people around you. What are their interests? Do you have any connections to them?

2. Just say anything! Sometimes, a compliment or just plain hi can spark a new friendship.

3. Remember, this is friendship! Never go by the book, and meld in, because everyone is different. It might not work at first, but if you stay true to yourself, magical things can happen.

Extra #1: Don't get too clingy, as that's the one pet peeve everyone seems to have.

Extra #2: Your new besties might not really hang out with you at first, but eventually you'll earn their trust. Have patience!

Extra #3: Figure out where your friends hang out during Access and Lunch, and remember to go there every day. Just ask!

Extra #4: One of the best ways to bond is to invite someone over, maybe to something happening at your community. Or, take a couple of people somewhere, so that the atmosphere is filled with camaraderie.
