Today was horrible. I was on online school and had a quiz about key signatures in band. I was pretty confident that I would do at least ok, considering that I had gotten perfect or almost perfect on all of the practices. But when I opened up the quiz, and saw the first question, my mind just went blank. I couldnt remember anything I had learned, and I felt lucky I could make multiple attempts. After ten attempts, class was ending and I needed to submit my highest score. It was 14 out of 25. Not even a passing grade. The lowest grade I have gotten before this, in any subject, is B. I have never cracked under stress like this before. I was actually crying at this point. My parents are going to be really mad at me, and I just feel horrible. I need hugs.

I’m sorry Cinder 🙁 I know how that feels, I’ve totally done that in karate and made myself feel (if not look like) an idiot. It happens to the best of us. <33 I won’t tell you ‘don’t worry’ because I know how impossible that is (but try if you can), but just know that what happened was understandable.

One of my relatives that I don’t know very well might die.. she’s my stepdad’s mom. She isn’t very healthy, and has a kidney problem. She’s had so many surgeries, and everyone is worried that she might not make it through another, which she has to have. I have met her, and she is very nice too. I don’t want her to die, I need hugs

Can I vent right now?
Thanks.

So, I’m don’t think I’m a normal middle school girl/ apprentice. I mean, I play an instrument, I go to school, I do homework, like in that way. But, I started kindergarten when I was 4. So, now in 6th grade, I’m 10. I feel different than any other middle schooler or apprentice on BlogClan. I just feel like an outcast, and that everyone wouldn’t accept me. And that, I’m different. 🙁

Hey, don’t worry. I accept you. My cousin is in 6th grade but he’s 14. And just so you know, I’m also an apprentice, but I’m 10. I also am the youngest on my soccer league, That sometimes the kids there underestimate my strength or think I can’t do something and make it “soft” for me. Even my coach does that. So I know exactly how you feel.

Hey, I’m thirteen and I’m in fourth grade math. No, it’s not because I’m dumb, but because of setbacks in the past and my mom not having math as her strongsuit. But still. I’m weird, by the way, so your not the only one that’s different. 🙂 But I see no reason you have to be the negative kind of outcast. You have the option to be proud of your difference—who wants to go with generality? Not me. But I get the part about acceptance; being different shouldn’t mean you’re excluded. In fact, the best people on this earth are accepting of differences instead of scorning and shaming them.

If you want to understand yourself more, I suggest taking the 16Personalities test. I have learned and understood so much more about myself from taking it, and now I’m obsessed with typology. And I’m turning into the real me.
*hugs* What your feeling is understandable.
I don’t know if this is what you were looking for, but best wishes. <3 By the way, I accept you all the way, and ‘strange’ is my middle name (figuratively :PPP ). I hope to get to know you more.

Does that mean your older than your meant to be? Because I’m not sure how the system works in America and I don’t think people of different ages can be in different years.
It doesn’t really matter what age you are! You can still make friends with those younger or older than you!

Hoi! Since this is the hug page, let me post some words of advice to anyone who doesn’t feel like themselves and want to change. (And for anyone else who reads this)

If you question who you are, question whether or not what your picking is you. Because you are you, unique and so determined, and no one can stop you from being the best version of you. Don’t worry, because you must and will be excepted soon enough. If you have to change the world for it, than do it. No one will get in your way.

Guys, for ELA we have to read a story. It’s very interesting.

”Eleven” by Sandra Cisneros

What they don’t understand about birthdays and what they never tell you is that when you’re eleven, you’re also ten,
and nine, and eight, and seven, and six, and five, and four, and three, and two, and one. And when you wake up on
your eleventh birthday you expect to feel eleven, but you don’t. You open your eyes and everything’s just like
yesterday, only it’s today. And you don’t feel eleven at all. You feel like you’re still ten. And you are—underneath the
year that makes you eleven.
Like some days you might say something stupid, and that’s the part of you that’s still ten. Or maybe some days you
might need to sit on your mama’s lap because you’re scared, and that’s the part of you that’s five. And maybe one day
when you’re all grown up maybe you will need to cry like if you’re three, and that’s okay. That’s what I tell Mama
when she’s sad and needs to cry. Maybe she’s feeling three.
Because the way you grow old is kind of like an onion or like the rings inside a tree trunk or like my little wooden
dolls that fit one inside the other, each year inside the next one. That’s how being eleven years old is.
You don’t feel eleven. Not right away. It takes a few days, weeks even, sometimes even months before you say Eleven
when they ask you. And you don’t feel smart eleven, not until you’re almost twelve. That’s the way it is.
Only today I wish I didn’t have only eleven years rattling inside me like pennies in a tin Band-Aid box. Today I wish I
was one hundred and two instead of eleven because if I was one hundred and two I’d have known what to say when
Mrs. Price put the red sweater on my desk. I would’ve known how to tell her it wasn’t mine instead of just sitting
there with that look on my face and nothing coming out of my mouth.
“Whose is this?” Mrs. Price says, and she holds the red sweater up in the air for all the class to see. “Whose? It’s been
sitting in the coatroom for a month.”
“Not mine,” says everybody. “Not me.”
“It has to belong to somebody,” Mrs. Price keeps saying, but nobody can remember. It’s an ugly sweater with red
plastic buttons and a collar and sleeves all stretched out like you could use it for a jump rope. It’s maybe a thousand
years old and even if it belonged to me I wouldn’t say so.
Maybe because I’m skinny, maybe because she doesn’t like me, that stupid Sylvia Saldivar says, “I think it belongs to
Rachel.” An ugly sweater like that all raggedy and old, but Mrs. Price believes her. Mrs. Price takes the sweater and
puts it right on my desk, but when I open my mouth nothing comes out.
“That’s not, I don’t, you’re not…Not mine.” I finally say in a little voice that was maybe me when I was four.
“Of course it’s yours, ”Mrs. Price says. “I remember you wearing it once.” Because she’s older and the teacher, she’s
right and I’m not.
Not mine, not mine, not mine, but Mrs. Price is already turning to page thirty-two, and math problem number four. I
don’t know why but all of a sudden I’m feeling sick inside, like the part of me that’s three wants to come out of my
eyes, only I squeeze them shut tight and bite down on my teeth real hard and try to remember today I am eleven,
eleven. Mama is making a cake for me for tonight, and when Papa comes home everybody will sing Happy birthday,
happy birthday to you.
But when the sick feeling goes away and I open my eyes, the red sweater’s still sitting there like a big red mountain. I
move the red sweater to the corner of my desk with my ruler. I move my pencil and books and eraser as far from it as
possible. I even move my chair a little to the right. Not mine, not mine, not mine. In my head I’m thinking how long till
lunchtime, how long till I can take the red sweater and throw it over the schoolyard fence, or leave it hanging on a
parking meter, or bunch it up into a little ball and toss it in the alley. Except when math period ends Mrs. Price says, loud and in front of everybody, “Now, Rachel, that’s enough,” because she sees I’ve shoved the red sweater to the
tippy-tip corner of my desk and it’s hanging all over the edge like a waterfall, but I don’t care.
“Rachel, ”Mrs. Price says. She says it like she’s getting mad. “You put that sweater on right now and no more
nonsense.”
“But it’s not –“
“Now!” Mrs. Price says.
This is when I wish I wasn’t eleven because all the years inside of me—ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three,
two, and one—are pushing at the back of my eyes when I put one arm through one sleeve of the sweater that smells
like cottage cheese, and then the other arm through the other and stand there with my arms apart like if the sweater
hurts me and it does, all itchy and full of germs that aren’t even mine.
That’s when everything I’ve been holding in since this morning, since when Mrs. Price put the sweater on my desk,
finally lets go, and all of a sudden I’m crying in front of everybody. I wish I was invisible but I’m not. I’m eleven and
it’s my birthday today and I’m crying like I’m three in front of everybody. I put my head down on the desk and bury
my face in my stupid clown-sweater arms. My face all hot and spit coming out of my mouth because I can’t stop the
little animal noises from coming out of me until there aren’t any more tears left in my eyes, and it’s just my body
shaking like when you have the hiccups, and my whole head hurts like when you drink milk too fast.
But the worst part is right before the bell rings for lunch. That stupid Phyllis Lopez, who is even dumber than Sylvia
Saldivar, says she remembers the red sweater is hers. I take it off right away and give it to her, only Mrs. Price
pretends like everything’s okay.
Today I’m eleven. There’s a cake Mama’s making for tonight and when Papa comes home from work we’ll eat it.
There’ll be candles and presents and everybody will sing Happy birthday, happy birthday to you, Rachel, only it’s too
late.
I’m eleven today. I’m eleven, ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, and one, but I wish I was one hundred
and two. I wish I was anything but eleven. Because I want today to be far away already, far away like a runaway
balloon, like a tiny o in the sky, so tiny—tiny you have to close your eyes to see it.

I might be crying

Soooooo…this isn’t really a Hug Page thing. If there was an Advice Page, this would be for that. But there isn’t, and if I put it at the Tavern, it would be buried in a snap. 😛
So whatever.

I have this friend, and we talk over email. We call each other best friends, starting when we met when we were about nine. Last time I saw her was several months ago and before that I hadn’t seen her in years. I don’t really feel like I know her. I want a deeper connection with her to I can really call her my best friend (I don’t have many friends anyway), because now, years later, I wouldn’t just throw around that phrase—and there’s no way I’m going to say “I don’t really feel like we’re best friends.” Because I want to be. But it’s kind of hard to be real friends with someone you didn’t see for years because they moved to a different co-op (that’s a homeschool group, which is where I met her. But she moved to one closer to her) and now Covid.
So as I said already, we use email. We used to do letters, and those were few and far between. So it’s quicker now, and fun. But we don’t really talk about stuff that I feel like is making me know her any better. I looked up “questions to form a deeper connection” but I think if I asked her “What do you think your purpose in life is?” or “What would you change about your past?” is kind of personal privacy…? I would love it if a trusted friend asked me that, but emphasis on the trusted. I don’t know about her.

I don’t know what kind of advice I expect, but it’s worth a shot. 😛

I understand how it feels to want to get to know someone better. I’ve felt that way a lot of times, often about people who I’ve almost never actually communicated with. So I might not have the best advice because I’m bad at starting conversations. 😛

Try telling her how you feel, but without making it sound like you’re not best friends. Something like, “I love talking with you and I’d really like to get to know you even better.”

You could also suggest some games like guessing things about each other or two truths and a lie.

Not the best with advice, but I’ll try.
I have friends too, that I talk over email. I’ll call her Caramelpaw, the one that I’m going to be talking about. Caramelpaw and I met in 2nd grade, and we were like the best of the best friends, but things kinda spiraled downward when I moved, and COVID came.. We have occasional sleepovers, so we were really close together, but when COVID came, we could only chat from email.. And I’m just so busy, with school, homework, extra work, etc. We haven’t chatted much often, and I feel like our relationship is breaking apart. I’m now in Japan, and we can’t have any playdates/sleepovers anymore.
But, our relationship did get better. We met once, before I got on a airplane, and we talked. We talked and talked and talked. We got as close as we once were. So maybe you could try talking to your friend?
Again, sorry, not the best with advice.

I really want to know my sexuality, but I can’t figure it out…
I’m straight sexuality (pretty sure), but I think I’m greyromantic, yet I can’t grasp the meaning of ‘romantic’. Is it wanting to go on dates? I don’t want to go on dates. I think. It would be more like two average/normal friends just going out for a snack (if you know what I mean). But is being romantic liking them and having your heart jump or similar when you’re around them? Which happens to me.

So what is the definition of romantic in an easy to understand way? What romantic orientation do I have if I don’t want to go on dates, but at the same time I like their personality?

Typically, Romantic means your in love with that type of person.
*Hugs* I hope you figure it out <33

Romantic I think is where you like to be with them and feel some attraction but don’t really want to have a serious relationship
Does that help?

Gonna correct something here: romantic can mean that you want a serious relationship. If anything, romantic tends to mean that you want a serious relationship with someone.

There’s no true definition for what it means to be romantic, but in my experience (as an aromantic watching people around me be in relationships), wanting romantic relationships tends to mean that you want to form a meaningful connection to them and aim to have a relationship where the both of you can trust the other deeply and be able to share intimate or personal things (and that you enjoy their company and want to be around them more (possibly for the rest of your life via marriage)). Right now, I identify as aromantic because I have little to no desire to have any kind of romantic relationship and I experience very little romantic attraction to others, but I can still like someone’s personality! I just… don’t want to marry them 😛 Or be in any of that complicated romance business 😛

I really don’t know if to out this here but…here I go.
I was the first one to come out to my friends as Pan, and as a Demigirl, but I changed to Bigender.
Then, one of my friends came out as Bi. I was super excited. (Let’s call her Dovestream)

So I was going in a website, and there was an LGBT+ studio, were Dovestream said she liked one of her friends…And..I don’t know..I have another friend that’s Pan.(Let’s call her Briarmask)
And I think Briarmask likes me, ’cause you know…I’m Bigender so…I like her too.

What if Dovestream likes Briarmask or me? I REALLY don’t know whet to say…I’m super nervous. I need hugs.

I found blood on my cat like in that spot in front of their ears that has less hair then the rest of their body. It was tiny but almost gave me a heart attack. What if it doesnt heal? What if its something worse? What gave it to her? How did she get it? My heart rate it skyrocketing. She won’t let me clean it with a towel. What if she has covid? I heard that some tigers have been coughing. Tigers are cats. What if it HURTS! I’m so flipping nervous.

That’s so scary. You might need to wash your cat throughly, before washing yourself/whoever who touched the cat throughly, so you are taking measures not to catch COVID. If your cat starts to show some strange things, such as coughing or sneezing, you should take your cat to the vet, to be safe. I hope your cat doesn’t have COVID. *hugs*

She/he was probably just in a tiny fight. It’ll heal fine!
