    She obviously has major personal problems. She probably thinks she is going to fail and wants someone else to do so as well.
    You're right! She also said once how she thinks she will get bad grades and get no A grades, yet in essays/tests she gets A's occasionally.

    Also, she seems insecure. She's pretty but once she called someone ugly... and I found it weird, it didn't seem right lol.

    Thanks for help.

    I will do so, any advice how? Its not easy haha
    I know how you feel - I was in year 12 a couple of years ago and some of my friends from high school just turned on me. But I think it would be much better if you were alone than associating yourself with someone who is just using you.

    Sorry about that! Did you distance yourself? What did you do at lunch times? I think I may start doing work at lunch since she's boring and just sits there.

    Also- if I distance myself, she won't understand why and she probably thinks that her lies and bs is alright. The fact we are not close or personal is a good reason to not be friends as I feel no connection with her.

    I did eventually sort it out with them but yeah I would talk to other people and I'd be in the study room getting on with my work - was much easier than being around the bs tbh. And just tell her straight that you don't want anything to do with her because of what she's doing. After that, just keep away from her.

    You seem familiar with my name, but I don't remember smelling your kind before. Who are you and where do you come from, may I ask?
    I'm a new dinosaur from Jurassic World. Disguised as Walter White. Nice to meet you.

    I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but have you tried talking to her about why she acts this way? She's obviously jealous of you, but she may not be aware that what she is doing is hurting you. If she is a decent person, she would change her attitude towards you. If she continues her ways, then avoid her.

    To be honest, it all seems a bit petty, to the both of you.


    But I do know the feeling. I remember years ago for my triple science GCSE, I said I was going to start some revision half term, and my friend was all 'wtf, that's way too early, I'd never start yet it'll be pointless'. And I thought, because she's so much more studious than me, it must be too early if even she thinka it'll be pointless. But alas on my return after half term she was heard reciting all she had learnt during her week off.
    It is a bit annoying that some people get competitive with friends over this, but I suppose it'll drive you on to work harder.

    Do you think flattery will keep you alive?

    You think you can deceive me, Barrel-Rider?

    You have come from Lake Town! This is some sort of scheme hatched between these filthy dwarves and those miserable tub-trading Lakemen, those snivelling cowards with their Longbows and Black Arrows! Perhaps it is time I paid them a visit!

    Shes stubborn, she won't realise why she's wrong and shes not going to be willing to change.

    I have no idea why she's jealous! She does better than me in some subjects.

    Why am I being petty?

    I've talked to my parents about this and they said that I shouldn't help her, ignore her texts and don't give her help with revision which seems fair.

    Oh no... This isn't their fault! Wait! You can not go to the Lake Town!

    Take it you're looking forward to killing those hobbitses in your new film.

    I say you make friends with some guys. Guys are easier to be friends with. But maybe you should actually talk to her about it?..
