Hello

Hi, I’m Maxie. I was suggested to look at this websites by my mum and so I’m here. I’m hoping to make some friends here. 

At the moment I’m being bullied at college for being autistic. I’m studying psychology and politics A Levels. I’m 16 years old.

I have social and chronic anxiety, and autism, and I’m deaf in one ear. 

In my spare time I love doing anything to do with trades, like carpentry, plumbing, electrical installation. I want to be an electrician when I’m older and build my own house.

If you have any questions, just ask.

    @independent_ thanks! I really enjoy psychology. It’s amazing! I like politics but that’s the class I get bullied in so it’s not great at the moment. What’s your fave topic in psych?

    @Maxie_2020 ooh that’s quite hard aha, I really enjoyed studying sleep and dreams as part of my higher psychology course. It was very cool to learn about how dreaming works and what dreams mean. What’s your favourite?

    I’m really sorry to hear about the bullying, have you spoken to anybody about it?

    It was lovely seeing you in general chat tonight too <3

    @independent_ my favourite is social influence so far. I love the Zimbardo experiment, but I haven’t don’t too much of the course yet because I’ve just started. I’m really excited to do gender as well.

    Yeah ive spoken to the college about the bullying quite a few times. It started 5 weeks ago and they are trying to stop it but no luck so far❤️

    The steps you take don’t need to be big, they just need to take you in the right direction.

    Welcome to the boards @Maxie_2020

    I'm currently studying English literature at uni and hoping for either a post grad in social work or the RAF (undecided). 

    I'm currently training to become a Childline counsellor so psychology is an awesome subject to take. 

    I'm not super interested in politics but what would you say you enjoy about it? 

    Anyways welcome :)
