Since the original board seems to be gone, here's where you can now rant about whatever's bothering you, no matter what it is.

    So, I have this one friend (I'll call them X), and they're friends with this other kid (I'll call him S), who used to be friends with me. (X and S met online, through me)

    The reason S and I are no longer friends is that S is a huge jerk, to both my friends and myself. He acts superior to everyone else, basically says "if your opinion/lifestyle is different than mine, it's bad", puts people down for things they're excited about, uses people, etc. (He is better now, but he's still a jerk) He lost several friends because of this, but he has friends now so that's good for him, I guess. (Everyone needs friends)

    But here's the catch: X doesn't know any of this, and they think S is a lovely, weird person who can be a bit crazy, but is not a jerk. Whenever I talk to X, about things going on in my life, and those things involve S's jerky behaviors, I've been careful to not mention S's name, as I know X and S are good friends.

    But I've been thinking, and I think I might want to bring some of S's behaviors to X's attention, seeing as how they have affected me in the past, and I'm friends with X, and they want to know about what's going on in my life. And I feel weird not telling them that S is the jerky person, because I don't want them to go to S and be like "Phoenix told me..." and I don't want them to think I'm just hating on S for no reason.

    But I feel weird not telling them! Uuuuggghhh this is annoying.

    Sorry for the long rambling rant.
  • I’m so stressed right now. My friend has probably broken her finger because some lunatic in my class threw a lawn bowl at her. A LAWN BOWL! I know they love so dearly to make fun of her, but that is just WAY too far.

    I can’t deal with the sheer amount of drama that kids from my school cause on Instagram. I’m juat so sick of blocking people.
    • Ugh, that sounds awful. If you ever need to rant, my inbox is open <3

        I've felt with similar idiots so I might have some advice

  • I hate cheerleading so much. It's not even the cheer itself, it's my coaches. They schedule wight-hour practices on weekdays when kids don't have school, they make the biggest deals over the littlest things, sometimes mock us, and i could go on and on. I'm always miserable all the way through practice, but I really don't want to quit because i would let people down, especially since i never really quit anything and I haven't missed a single practice. I'm just really upset right now.
    • :(
      I'm sorry Lily.
      My only real advice is to weigh the pros and cons, maybe even make a chart, and decide if it's worth staying.
      I went through a similar situation with piano, I liked playing the instrument itself but I really didn't like my teacher or the formalized classes.
      I really didn't want to let my classmates down by quitting but I decided it wasn't worth it, it made me really unhappy and I eventually quit.
      I hoped this helped a little.
      If you ever want to pm my inbox is open!
      • Thank you! <3 at least cheer ends in less than a month, so even if I don't quit, it won't be much longer.

How to Talk to Your Crush

I have a crush on somebody, and I really like them. I want to tell them that I have a crush on them, but I’m worried they won’t like me back and I won’t even be able to be friends with them. What should I do? -Anonymous Your not alone anon, that’s a fear everyone has when they have crush- and it makes sense! Your admiting your personal feelings to another person, being scared of rejection is completely understandable. First of all, if you’re not already friends with this person, try becoming…

Sleeping Over at a Friend's House

When I get invited to sleepover parties, I always end up wanting to go home before bed. Now that I am a rising 8th grader, I am starting to worry that my friends may find it babyish that I can't spend the night. Any advice? -Anonymous      I’ve had experience with this same problem before! When I used to often have sleepovers with my friends, I’d nearly always call my mom to pick me up when it came time to go to sleep. Eventually, I did start to worry that my friends would look down on me…

Preparing For Your Period

“I feel very unprepared about getting my first period. I don’t know exactly what happens and I am really worried about getting it at school. I wouldn’t want to talk to anyone about it and I don’t feel comfortable talking to my mom about it ahead of time either. Would I be able to just use a wad of toilet paper instead of a pad for a day until I get home and can ask my mom for one? Where would I keep pads after I did get my period if I had it at school? I just feel uninformed and unprepared and…
