Anyone else had a hard time in school? I'm introverted and has social anxiety. Any tips for people like me?

It took me a while to understand this but I eventually discovered that if you focus on being the best at whatever you do people tend to take notice. Control what you can and don't worry about the rest; it will all fall into place.

People will gravitate toward the success and that will build confidence in yourself. Likewise if there is someone else ahead of you pay attention to what they do different. You may pick up on some good habits from them along the way. On the opposite end of the spectrum try to make your own mistakes and not repeat someone else's.

I'm also an introvert and was very anxious when I was your age. When I was getting close to 18, I made a conscious effort to get to know people a little better. I talked to people more in class, focused on subjects I wouldn't have spent a lot of time on, and volunteered for more things at school (in and out of the classroom). Small steps really help a lot. Most importantly, know when you need to recharge.

I still struggle with it to this day, but am not nearly as bad as I used to be; and most people don't notice. Good luck!

"I don't even care anymore." is what got me through it.

If the white kid tells you to not go to school tomorrow, you better listen to him

Bring your (designated programming device) and spend any and all free time on it. Make sure to ignore other humans.

Thank you guys. I've been away from school for 2 years because of depression, I hope this year would be different.
I finished 1 school year without making any friends, it was horrible. Had to do group projects on my own because no one would invite me to their groups. People don't talk to me and i'm to shy to talk to them.

I think it's one of the reason I like the character so much.
