    People Almost Avoid Me

    I'm in grade 11 right now. I have the hardest time getting people to like me. I do act like I'm the best person to ever exist but that's more to make others think I'm kinda funny than anything else. People say I talk a lot which is surprising since I just moved to this school and...
