How are your class mates?

How do they act? Are they smart? Are you good friends with them?

Uh, only if you go to school, though.


Me? I'm the shy and smart one. I prefer to stay out of things and I keep my voice down.

One of the boys in my class is really a perv. Many others are too, but he is worst. He's like... ew... all the time. And he can't keep his voice down or sit still :[ It's really annoying when you're working.

Another one of the boys, my friend, is a game freak. He loves to play and almost all he do in the recess' is gaming on the computer.

And there's this "gang" of girls. They gossip and chat, mostly about horses. I'm not one of those, though. As mentioned before, I prefer to stay out of things.

And one of my best friends is like "Homework? Who cares? It's school! School is shit." Sometimes I wonder what she'll become when she grows up -.-" Oh, and she used to be slightly emo, dress in black clothes, use dark makeup and stuff, but now she's all colourful and rainbowy O.O It's creepy...

That's most of my class. Post yours.

Re: How is your class mates?

I'm like you. I'm quiet and shy and stay out of stuff. Normally. There are two 'gangs' really in my class (all boys school), sort of left and right side of the room. It's mainly Asians and well, white people (I'm not trying to be racist!). The right side of the room (my side, though I'm not really in either) have this weird game called Spamland. And the others have the coin game, where you flick a pound coin at everyone else's. My best friend has orangey brown hair and is completely mad. He lives in Streetly, which is near me. My other two good friends are really friendly, and are also mad, though not quite as mad as my other one. My other friends all have black hair, apart from the leader of Spamland, who has brown. We're all clever, having passed a test to get in, but some are much more than others. I'm about in the top quarter. Just so you know, just because my friends are, doesn't mean I am!

Re: How is your class mates?

Most of them are people who have no idea of my existence or know me as the "really quiet smart girl" or alternatively "the girl who always has pencils. (so I can borrow them from her because I was too lazy to bring one even though this is school and I knew we were going to do a lot of writing!)"

Well, I don't really pay attention much to them or social stuff, so I don't know what they're like specifically, as individuals. But I can give you generalizations!

In every odd year I've gone to school (3rd grade, 5th grade, 7th grade, etc. Odd numbers, got it?), I've always been made fun of by some asshole boy. Yes, it's always a boy. Males seem to have some sort of hatred for me. It's like I have this anti-man spray on me or something, because I either repel them or make them come over and make fun of me. (And no, don't be all like: "Oh, they really just like you Arylett! They're just showing it by mocking you!" I don't think they like me, trust me.) I suppose it's because I don't dress in skimpy clothing. They're mostly stupid and talk about stupid things, like dead babies. Yeah. So most boys I've seen so far in all of my lifetime at school seem to have the mental capacity of a 5 year old. And they're all lazy too, slackers who dress in terrible shirts WAAAY to large for them and pants that fall down to their knees. It's rare for me to see a boy properly dressed and actually eager to learn. (I don't mean overzealous, I just mean have SOME interest in learning at least.) Not to say boys are stupid, just that the ones in my school are.

Oh, the females? Just as bad and brainless. They seem to have an odd fascination with the males, it's something I don't understand. I mean, it's okay to like boys! But... to be all giggly and chattery and gossipy about them is not. And that's what they are all the time. Giggling every single second, with their purses too small to even fit a breath mint (which I don't get. Why carry such a small purse where you can hardly fit things? Isn't the whole point of a purse to keep your items in it?) and their loudness in class. I disaprove of all of this. It's silly and stupid. ;;Is a stick in the mud;; The only good thing about these guys (girls? Yeah.) is that they don't take much notice of me most of the time, which means they don't make fun of me.

...There's only one person who I consider decent, more than decent! Oh, so wonderful~ I love her~ She is something special, not brainless like most of these people, she's got the smarts! (No seriously, she is REALLY intelligent. Good grades, hard classes, works really hard.) That's my only friend at school (well, my only friend anywhere, really), the one who I'm always mentioning. But she's the only one of that bunch I really know, so yeah. Some of them can be decent intelligent people, some who I know in passing. But most just seem beyond my scope of understanding. I like to study them though, observe them from afar, it's quite interesting.

Spamland? o.o" What's that supposed to mean?

And my brother plays some kinda coin game similar to that, but instead, they try to hit their knuckles as hard as possible with a coin until they bleed -.-" I think they call it bloodcoin or something.

My mum does that too, I mean study people, not as a job or something, she just looks at them and listen to what they, then she can tell how they feel, how they are at home and school and such.

I have a friend in a kind of gossip group. We used to play a lot when we were younger, but she is a year older than me and started school before me, so we kinda lost connection.
 

coughsalot

I have returned!
I moved this March and I've only been at the school for less than 3 months, so I don't know anyone that well. I mostly hang out with "The Nerd Group". However, I did earn a reputation as "The Human Dictionary" with the whole class. (my teacher as well) The rest of the school know me as... the same thing, actually. Not much else I can tell you...
 
My classmates are generally nice to me. There was this one boy that used to be a jerk sometimes, but he's okay now.

Well...I'm not too good at describing them, but I'll try. Some of the boys are the "cool and funny" type, and these are the boys i like AS FRIENDS AND FRIENDS ONLY. There's a new kid in class too, and I don't know much about him.

The girls are okay, but I sometimes feel I get better along with the boys.
 

Ambipom

Stangers are just friends you've never met~
School didn't start yet nah nah

Okay, the boys in my class talk about crushes and getting dates. The girls in my class walk around and giggle and look at the boys.

Ok I shall base this upon last year since the upcoming year will be full of newbies

doing this in list form, by class

English - awesome group, we were all smart and we had tons of fun
Maths - group was alright, my friend Jemz and I seemed to get forgotten about a lot though. BUT this class was EPIC when we had a cover teacher.
Biology/Chemistry/Physics - an awesome group, but we could only /be/ awesome in physics since our bio and chem teachers were horrible
Citizenship/ICT - BEST GROUP EVER. We were all loud bastards and never did the work lmao :B
Graphics - bah mostly chavs in this group. I had 2 friends in here and we just kept to ourselves mostly.
Art - small class is small. Mostly chavs again but they weren't so bad. I had 3 friends in here, we were cool
History - half cool people half chavs. The chavs weren't so bad.
Ancient history - lmao huge class. Mostly cool people, about 2 chavs aaaaand 1 person who got on my fucking nerves :(
PE - this class changed twice... first time was great; I was the only girl there, second time was brilliant; no assholes at all, third time I wasn't there for much but it was pretty much the same as the second one.

Overall year 11 was pretty fabarooney considering classmates
 

#1 bro

FEELING GREAT, FEELING GOOD, HOW ARE YOU?
I love my school. :D There are a lot of stupid people in my grade, but they're stupid... in a good way. Uh, I don't really know how to explain it. :P However, in the grade above me there are a lot of obnoxious idiots who do stuff like look at porn on the school computers, but I never really talk to the people in the grade above me. So it all works out. Anyway we definitely have an unpopular group, an "in-the-middle" group, and a popular group, but the popular people don't usually bully the unpopular people, they just kind of ignore them. Or... well, that's not to say that higher people on the social ladder don't make fun of lower people behind their backs, but still. It could be a lot worse.

I sort of hang out with a bit of all three groups. The unpopular people, because I used to be like rock-bottom on the social ladder and I still have some friends there (but most of them are really annoying so a lot of them I try to avoid). Then pretty much all my friends are in the middle group, so that's where I am most of the time, and then I sometimes hang around the popular group because everyone there is hilarious. Except this one kid, who everyone hates. But he's still popular. okay wtf.


Also Jolty's post reminded me: we had the best language arts class ever last year. There was me and five of my rowdy friends, then there was like ten quiet people who never said anything. It was totally male-dominated also, because there were only six girls and they would never say a word. :D

ETA: Oh plus as a bonus we don't have "chavs" or "emos" or anything. Basically everyone in the entire school is a prep or a nerd. We have to wear a uniform to school, but at dances it's a total polo-fest. D:
 

Dannichu

Tragically unbeyachted.
I've finished school, but the people I was with in sixth form absolutely rocked. In year 13 there were only about 60 of us, and everyone was so nice and mature and friendly. Obviously, people had their own friendship groups, but if you went into the Common Room and if none of your usual friends were around, you could go up and talk to anyone. Everyone knew and looked out for everyone else, even if they didn't have any classes together. The teachers all said at our leaver's do that we were the nicest and closest year group they've ever seen.

There's not a single person from my year I don't miss D:

They're all wonderfully stupid. :D

I don't hate any of them, actually. xD Sure I'm not friends with most of them but I mean they don't annoy me or anything. Stupid people don't bother me at all.
 

FerrousLucario

would like to go to Arizona
Mostly generically annoying teenagers, I guess. I don't pay too much attention to them. They always thought I was smart, though. Even though in 6th grade I think I had a B and a couple of Cs and Ds. >_>

I think at least half of the people that knew me last year called me by my last name. I'm not entirely sure if I should feel bad about it, but so far I haven't cared about it. It originated in my favorite class, so yeah. I miss having three small classes.

If I have to do any more Socratic circles this year with no help I'm going to go crazy

Um.

Fucking awesome. xD

My class last year, since we're the gifted class, got split into two. And, I got all of the people who are awesome. Except the one really whiny really bratty kid... but I can put up with her I guess. Well. I'll just break them down. xD

Sarah - is really bratty. If she gets the yellow book, she wants the orange book. If she gets the orange, she wants the yellow. Etc. etc. When she's not in a mood, she's actually kind of fun to talk to.

Mustafa...? - I guess his name's Ali but he goes by Mustafa... I don't really know him. He seems shy and kinda out of it, but um. Whatever.

Me - Simply the most amazing person ever !!! xD

Mandy - Mandy's pretty nice. I live by her; we have every class together. I did Odyssey on her team. Odyssey is like, you have to make a skit that's all complicated with such and such but no so and so.

Diana - She was in my class last year. Really awesome, funny. Fun to hang around.


okay screw this. :[

But yeah, there's surprisingly no weirdos. Except for electives... ugh. Electives are like, they mix level 1, 2, and 3 together, 3 being the smarter ones (I'm in three.) And like, I really don't mean to offend anyone, but it seems like everyone in level 1 is kinda dirtballish. :/

So, all in all, good. Especially cause I'm retying old ties with old friends. Jr. High = Pwn.

My form's (I won't go into actual lessons because I can't remember last year's groups and don't know this year's groups) split into more or less three segments--the chavs, the incredibly irritating and everyone else (who is generally pretty awesome).
 

spaekle

emotionless and cold as ice
I shall also go by class, because it differs!

Art - About three friends of mine who are awesome. The rest are random people I don't know that well. Some are really good artists, some are really just annoying and screw around all period, and some just kind of sit there and play with the Prismacolors.

CompSci - Mostly full of dudes who look about the stereotypical type you'd expect to be in a higher-level computer class.

Earth Science - Eh, mixed bag. I saw some smart kids and some pretty stupid kids.

APUSH - all smart kids. A couple friends.

English - mostly people I don't particularly care for. These chicks who sat behind me spent the whole period talking about how much Obama sucks and how pro-life they are. :|

Geometry - I take math on the basic level, so I expected to have a bunch of annoying people who don't give a shit about school. Really, though, it's just a bunch of advanced-level Sophomores and then a few quiet kids I know. Not bad.


I have pretty tolerable classmates this year, for the most part!

Me? I'm the class clown that's got friends all over. I talk a lot and people (I think) like me. Let's break it down.

Biology AP - I'm in a class with a bunch of super smart seniors that I haven't met yet but I will soon. Very soon.

Scholars - All a bunch of really smart kids that I'm friends with (save for like one person). It's a class for people that scored REALLY well on their PSAT and want to bump their score up a little bit to National Merit Scholars level.

PALs - The best class ever. EVERYBODY is crazy awesome. EVERYBODY.

Band - Friends with everyone, again. There are some stupid kids though.

Precal - I'm not friends with ANYBODY because it's an on-level class and I'm always above level. But I got tired of all the homework so I just dropped down because I'd get the same grade point anyways.

English AP - See Scholars: pretty much the exact same people

US History - There are 44 fucking people in this class. It seats 30. But it's like my entire English class (plus more) comes into history so it's really cool.

This year is going to freaking ROCK.
