Okay, first of all, I'm starting highschool on Monday. I'm scared to death, because everyone will be bigger then me, as I'm a freshman. The campus is huge, and I'm frightened the homework will be overwhelming.


Also, I'm getting a vaccine tomorow, and like Sam, I have a phobia of needles.


So please spare some vibes that highschool won't be as bad as I think, and I won't freak out when the needle is injected.

(I know, I hate change, and I'm a big baby.
)

Sending you vibes for the injection - just don't look and it'll be over before you know it!!

As for highschool, just think of all the interesting people you're going to meet, and all the great things you're going to learn. I'm always fascinated by US highschools, they look so much more exciting than our UK ones!

Good luck - your first day is one you will remember all your life! It is terrifying, but you will very quickly settle down, and remember everyone else is just as frightened as you are.

Under the cats, mostly.
Good luck! Highschool is probably the best time of your life - yes, it's scary for the forst little while but my god when you settle down, you meet so many new people, new ideas, new thinking... it's the most fun I ever had
You'll do just fine

High school is probably one of my best memories. I LOVED high school. And look at me...I was always one of those people who said "I won't miss high school. I hate it!" and I do miss it! I miss the memories!

As for vaccines.....I have a phobia of needles so sending you some good vibes!

Sending you good luck vibes. You'll do fine, though.

I hate needles, too, and I just try to look in the other direction and think about something else until it's over.

I remember my first day of high school, too. I was nervous, too. It turned out not to be too bad, though. Just remember that a quarter of the school is in the same boat you're in and feeling just as nervous as you are. I loved high school, too. It was one of the best times of my life!

I remember being nervous about starting high school, but you'll do fine!
Just remember, everyone else is probably just as nervous as you. Before you know it, you'll be making friends and getting involved in all kinds of activities. It's an exciting time and something to look forward too. Good luck!

Good luck!! Highschool is a lot of fun. I was nervous as a freshman also, but you'll be so busy you'll get over it pretty fast. Just be confident. And as for the needle thing, they really don't bother me much, so just don't watch and grip on to something tight and you'll do great.

Some of your friends from Junior High will be there with you, so you won't be all alone. My 16 y/o son really blossomed in high school, the increased independence just suited him. I think you will really like it, too.

You might ask your Mom if you can take a tylenol or motrin before going for the injection, that will help a little.

I'll be watching next week for your updates on how it is going at school!

Pain free shot vibes coming your way! Join some clubs at school and you'll make lots of friends real fast. I know you'll have plenty of friends in no time. I mean look at all the friends you have at TCS.

Good luck Jenny - I hope the injection was so much less of a deal than you thought it was going to be. You're going to be just fine at high school - it's scary looking up at it, but once you get there and get settled in, you'll wonder what all the fuss was about

Hope everything went OK with the shot. School will be fine. It's normal to be nervous at first. I was a bundle of nerves EVERY first day of school, including college. Within a few days you will be a pro at finding your way around.
