re: getting in groups...?!?!
I had that same problem at the beginning of the year in my AP psychology class. 90% of the class are seniors, and im a junior(high school), so I didnt know anyone. Of course we had a big group project, and I had to find the courage to ask to work with 2 people cuz, one of their friends was sick. They said it was ok for me to work with them, and we became friends. I guess what I am saying is that there will be situations like this, and you just have to find the strenth within you to act.
