    • Ah man, I can relate to all of this. I've always been friends with people who seem to act as if they are mature *because* of that fact that they swear and date and say stupid, dirty stuff: just know that maturity most definitely doesn't stem from that sort of thing. There is absolutely nothing wrong with feeling nostalgic, because that stuff you described does really sound fun. It sucks when all the people around you grow out of something but you're not ready to leave it yet. :-/ I would recommend to keep searching for your group of people who still enjoy the same things as you. Keep in contact with those friends as much as possible, but also remember that it's great to branch out and try new things, but only if you're comfortable and ready for it. I'm sorry about the homophobic 7th graders as well. :P I've been there too. <3

      • ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I feel the way you do so much. I've finally figured out that maturity is not about being inappropriate. That's just an immature way to deal with your insecurity about being uncool or whatever. I know I'm uncool by most people's standards, but I don't really care because popular kids are boring. The way I solved my problem, was to quit trying to win the approval of the older kids, and even kids my age, and just hang out with kids that are younger than me. It might be harder for you to do that, because I'm home schooled, and it doesn't sound like you are, so idk if I can really help you. It can be hard to admit that the people you thought were your friends aren't the best people for you to hang out with anymore, but trust me, it you're not having fun, find someone else, even if they're not really your age. What I've found is that the most mature people are the people who don't have to act stupid and show off to seem mature. I don't think playing with stuffed animals is only for younger kids. I'm 15, and I play with stuffies and legos with my 8 year old friends. Don't feel ashamed to like what you like and be who you are. I hope I was able to help you, Sheenagh. Best of luck! :) <333
      • Thanks Grace but the problem is I had my group until they started to hang out with the popular kids
      • ^^^^^^^^^^^
  • Can I PM someone?
    • I don’t know if you already have enough people but you could always PM me.

    • Yes you can always pm me <3
    • Yes, my mailbox is always a safe place for you. <33

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…

Redesigning Characters

"Do you have any advice on redesigning characters? I have an old one I want to polish up and I'm not sure how to go about it." -Willa While I don’t have a lot of experience redesigning characters visually, I have a bit more experience with reworking characters that I’ve created in pieces of writing. After thinking about your question a little, I think that both crafts tend to come down to the same core pieces, so hopefully my advice will help you out whether you’re looking to work on visual…

Too Much To Do

“Yesterday I felt overwhelmed because I had more to do than I was used to (Lots of homework, after school activities and dinner). Do you have any tips for girls to feel less overwhelmed when they have a lot to do?”  - Anonymous Feeling overwhelmed by long to-do lists is a very common experience, especially as we get older and start taking on more responsibilities and commitments, have more time-consuming homework, etc.—so you are far from alone in this. (It’s certainly something I’ve had to…
