Oh my gosh I love that song :0 I saw the musical more than two years ago (before quarantine!) so I hardly remember it but that song was the one part that I still remember.

This is dumb but I lie about my age on everything. I'm 11 but I'm always "13". Apparently a lot of people do this tho, so...

Idk why, but I HATE wasting anything, and seeing others waste stuff, so I can hardly restrain from telling people they shouldn't be wasting, and when I do I always feel bad bc I probably came off as rude. I am also VERY annoyed when people act like they don't care about the environment, because like, what? Do you know what our world could be like if we keep doing these things to the Earth? How can you not care? But again, I would seem kinda rude if I said that.

I feel the exact same way! Usually I politely but firmly tell them to choose the option that will (quite literally) save the world. It works, like, a solid 80% of the time.

Important announcement: STOP WASTING THINGS, PEOPLE!!! SAVE OUR PLANET!!!!!!!!

I feel like people want to like me, but they don't. It makes me feel uncomfortable.

I have a confession to make. I um...I'm multiple people on the CB. Yes, that's right, two of the names you see floating around are one person. I don't honestly know why I did it, but I guess you could say it was because I felt like I built up so much of a persona for my older one that I just...wanted to restart, but I didn't want to lose the legacy I'd built up.

Hey, don't feel too bad about this, I totally get why someone would do it! So just know that I at least won't be mad at all if you tell us who you are!

Sorry, you kinda sparked my curiosity...

You sparked mine too...I'm dying to know now.

My confession is that I'm scared.

Most of my friends are toxic; they push me down and make me feel bad about myself, to make themselves feel better. And they've been doing this for years, since I was younger than some of you are now, and at this point everyone already has their clique and I don't know who else to go to. Almost every single friend I've ever made has been toxic for me; J strung me along like a little lost puppy dog and wouldn't let me hang out with anyone else, even though she wouldn't pay attention to me; M picks at my insecurities and makes me feel even worse about my appearance and my anxiety; K makes me terrified to be myself around her; P only wants me around when he has no-one else and he's been dumped by his most recent boyfriend; H belittles my accomplishments and makes fun of the way I speak... the list goes on and on. And although that's all bad, that's not my confession.

My confession is, that I'm scared that if these are the choices I make for friends, and I can't get out of these relationships... what am I going to do when I start dating? What kinds of choices am I going to make? Am I going to let somebody dictate who I can and can't be friends with? If I can't pick good friends now, how am I supposed to pick good romantic partners? 

And that's why I'm scared. I'm scared that I can't trust myself to make good decisions. Because all of my friends started out as loving, healthy relationships that slowly degraded into toxicity, but I still haven't left. And I just... it really does make me worry. I don't know if this is too heavy for the CB, and I'll respect if the Admins edit all or most of this. Sorry for burdening you all with this.

I'm really, really sorry that this is happening to you. I hope you find friends that are kind to you and truly value you. I don't think that the fact that your 'friends' are being mean to you means that you can't trust your own judgement, though. I think there are a lot of really caring, kind people who you'll be able to be friends with/date, and an experience like this, while horrible, will (hopefully) in the long run help you be able to notice if someone is doing things that aren't okay and break off the relationship with them. Is there any way for you to switch schools or something like that? Again, I'm really sorry that is happening to you. You're a wonderful person who deserves friends who are kind. <3

Peril: I want to tell you a few things that I hope will help with your situation. Please believe them, because every single one of them is true.

1. Never stop being yourself. You are a good, kind, strong person, and you can do anything you set your mind to. Don't ever let anyone tell you that you aren't good enough. You are. And if they don't think so, they don't deserve you.

2. You don't have to stick around toxic friends. I understand that you're scared to leave, but otherwise, this'll keep spiraling. If you feel comfortable doing it, say it directly to their face. If not, write them a note or an email or a text. Tell them, "K, whenever we hang out, I'm scared to be myself. If you don't like the real me, then I shouldn't be your friend. If you're going to be my friend, you need to be my friend, not the friend of who you're trying to make me. If you can't agree to that, we can't be friends." Make it honest, firm, and kind. If they deny it, keep saying it's true until they accept it. If they shrug it off or laugh and say you're being too sensitive, say, "I'm serious. I can't be your friend if you're going to keep treating me like this." It might hard, but it will work. If they won't accept your boundaries, leave. They don't deserve you.

3. I don't know much about dating, but I'm pretty sure it's different from a friendship. If your partner is being mean or manipulative, you can dump them and leave. Just like that. I'm really sorry I can't give more advice on this one; I know hardly anything about dating.

4.  if most or all of your friendships have turned toxic, it's easy to think you have bad judgement. But you don't. A lot of friendships turn toxic or end in a fight. But it's not your fault. Keep trusting your judgement. Keep reaching out. Keep making friends. 

5. Make new friendships. If you end all of your toxic friendships, you may feel like you have nowhere to go. That isn't true. You have the CB, you have the other people at your school, people in other grades adn classes you haven't gotten to know yet, and if you do any afterschool activites, you have the people there. Take the first step. Reach out. Say hello. You can and will form friendships that last.

6. It'll be ok. Things might really, really suck right now, but that won't last forever. I promise you that things will get better.

Remember, you can always come to the CB for help. We're here for you.

haha i want to make people feel better but in truth the only thing i can do is show squirrel memes and idk how to make people feel better or really be nice because im super good at not saying things that would offend people but i suck at saying things that would make people feel better ._.

and i also feel like im being too pushy/loud/annoying/talkative at times bcause that's just me ._.

and OOH i really want to know if people still associate me with Random Person since that was me but after two name changes and a year-long hiatus, idk if people still see me as the same person as that, so like, I actually kinda want to know XD

I feel like i have different personalities? like when im with my friends im the watch your language/wholesome memes/uwu/slightly hyper person but when im with people i know but not that well im just a chill memelord, and then when im with strangers it really depends on what i think would make the conversation exciting

haha i still try to become friends with people i dont like

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, i keep losing pencils. Like i lost two the day before yesterday, and one yesterday. idk how or why :p

I think I can see molecules if I look hard enough at the air. No, really.

REALLY?!!! MEE TOOOOO!!!!! *excited gasping*

Only sometimes, though. I stare at the air and a molecule pops out of nowhere and goes all 'hi!' I think I'm hallucinating....maybe I'm sleep deprived..

I might be seeing something similar...it's mostly at night, like a bunch of dots are moving around in a pattern.
