    Maintain self-hygiene. Hygiene is very important. Nobody like to talk to someone with their smelly breath going in their face.
    • The night before, have a bath or shower and wash well, shampoo and condition your hair and then style it in whatever way you want it to look like for the morning.
    • Brush your teeth very well and bring mints (or gum) in so after your lunch you don't have bad breath.
    • Get good sleep the night before, it makes you more ready to start the day and more energetic. If you stay up then you will feel tired all day and will have dark circles under your eyes and will walk like a zombie and you won't be as focused either.

    At school, Smile and say Hi to anyone who you're being introduced to or who simply says Hi to you. When you are joining in the conversation talk about simple conversations not random (yet).
    • Do not talk about crazy things. Lay low a little, this may seem bad, but its not, don't lay low when someone's trying to start a conversation with you, or you're being included in one, just don't seem very entitled to your opinion.
    • This will make people not so keen to be best friends with you because they will be wanting to tell their best friends their secrets but, they won't if they feel your side of the opinion will make them not agree to theirs.
    • Gradually make your conversations more different and come out of your bubble a little going through the days.
    • Don't be mean, don't judge anybody. It will just make people think you're not a very nice person, especially because its your first day.
