I’ve recently transferred to a new high school and I can’t help but feel like I’m literally the only person in the entire school that cares about my education. I’ve been at this school for two months now and haven’t made a single friend because I just don’t have the same mindset as the other kids. My previous school was so hard that this feels like a joke to me.
I am by no means a genius but half the class is literally falling asleep while I’m the only person raising my hand at school. And believe me I used to be this person a few years ago and it takes so much will not to go back to those bad habits. In the last year I’ve developed healthier sleeping habits, my gpa is at its highest and I have been trying extremely hard to stay away from procrastination but when it takes one entire math class for the teacher to explain one algebra problem that I can solve in a few seconds it bothers me. It bothers me that the other students are just wasting my time and the class time because they chose not to pay attention. I was really hoping to make friends who could help me study and value school as much as I do.
Sorry if it feels like I’m complaining but I’ve never been this far ahead of everyone and it makes me feel like I’m never doing anything productive. I just wanted to know if anyone has ever felt like this and how do you go about without wanting to scream at people’s lack of wanting to learn and deal with people around you who simply don’t care.
