them, but they seem to find a lot of issues with many of the things I say or my mannerisms and are very quick to judge.
No offense, but it seems like you are coming into this class with a lot of judgements of your own. If you foster some negative opinion of a person or
a particular group of people, most of the time they can tell. You may not realize this but people are picking up on your non-verbal language.
So my advice would be, leave your expectations at the door. Walk in class with a fresh mind, try to go with the flow. If somebody has a problem with
something you do, try to compromise.. it's only one class. I'm not saying let people walk all over you, just to try and chill don't let it get you
worked up. I used to get into a lot of trouble when I was a teenager and my Dad would tell me to try and let what people say be like the water on a
duck's back, just let it roll off.. don't lose your cool, be laid back.. girls dig that more anyway despite what you might think.
I have ADHD also and I'm off the meds for 3 years now. It's possible to control. You have to learn to concentrate, you can practice by looking at
something and trying to pick out all the details.. as in every detail you can, even the most minute. Or in class think about what the teacher's saying
and try and rephrase it in your head or better yet in your notebook while you take notes, this will guarantee that you remember it and will make class
a little more interesting as well.
If you're a funny guy, then crack some jokes (at the appropriate time) everybody likes someone that can make them laugh, just don't make jokes at
someone else's expense.
About what the teacher was saying about you staring at her, try not to do that. You know she doesn't like it so now that you are conscious of it don't
let it happen, nobody likes being stared at because it makes us feel uncomfortable. You probly got her thinkin' she's got a booger in her nose or
something lol. Above all don't be so uptight, just chill like I said and you'll be fine bro.
