Apologies that I did not reply sooner -- it's been busy here, as we are already getting ready to start our new school year in one week!
But I did want to respond to your comment about distancing yourself from your friends, in anticipation of moving again.
I understand this feeling all too well.
And I feel it is very important for me to share this one insight with you:
If I could dial back in time to your age again and re-do my pre-teen and teenage years, I would have forced myself to make more new friends, even though I knew my parents were going to move again.
I was in two different high schools in Ohio and New York. When we moved to New York my junior year, I just gave up socially. I decided to wait it out my last two years of high school and isolate myself until I got to college.
It was the worst thing I could have done.
In college, because I knew I had four years in one place, I went all out and made tons of friends and got involved heavily in campus leadership.
But I missed out a LOT on the end of my high school years, because I decided it was "better" for me to not make friends that I would have to leave. It was not the right decision.
I know it is super hard to make friends only to have to say goodbye to them again. Believe me, I know.
But in the future, when you are finally my age, you will be so glad you did it, and you may be surprised that some of them are still in your life.
See, even though I did isolate myself for those last two years of high school, the friends I chose to make are still in my life. In fact, I trade messages with them almost every day now on Facebook, and it's fun to see how their kids are growing and what their lives are like today.
I would strongly encourage you to take a chance and be yourself and do whatever you have to do to make friends.
Just one piece of advice from a former kid who moved around a LOT, just like you are now. :-)
I hope that your new school year will be wonderful, but also remember all of us here are one keyboard stroke away from supporting you. Again, sorry I was not on the forum earlier to respond.
