Never use foul language. Ever. It doesn't matter if everyone is in your class is saying, "F**k this," and, "F**k that" - keep your own mouth clean. Swearing sounds horribly unintelligent and it can still offend a surprisingly large number of people.

yep

Gawd...I hate that, I am the only person believe it or not that doesn't swear in my class. The only exception being if i accidently hurt myself...sometimes naughty words do slip out

No excuse. Stiff upper lip!

My oaths for when I hurt myself are, "Great marauding mammoths of Marrakesh!" or more frequently, "Hell's biscuits!"

I disagree there. Never try and blend in. Be yourself.

Be yourself.

Be yourself.

It's the biggest cliche of them all, but it's also the best advice anyone can give.

I didnt mean it like that, but be yourself, but by blending in, I meant subltly join in a conversation.

I used a swear word frequently for a long time and have only just discovered that it is a swear word! :oops:

On the friend front; I'd try to be open. I've often said stuff, worried for ages about how I should not have done so, then discovered later that it didn't matter or even had a positive effect.

What word was that? Or is it too rude to put here?
