    What's so hard about coming back with your own opinions about the book and expressing them in class. I seriously doubt they're gonna jump you after class - unless the AP kids have drastically changed since I was one - and even if they do, it's nothing that a tube sock stuffed with rolls of quarters can't handle....
    You're right, actually. I don't really know why I'm complaining about it.

    But when their criticism gets a little too carried away and disrespectful, I become offended, or just annoyed.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    If that's what they're doing, you should definitely consult someone in a position of authority and have them do something about it. Probably your teacher, but as it seems that he/she doesn't have a firm grip on the class (allowing such "jokes" in the first place), you could probably talk to an administrator of some sort. That is ridiculous behavior to be allowed in any class, much less one that is AP. And allowing it does affect the learning experience of other students in a negative way.

    I want to turn it into a learning experience. That's apart of the whole grand experience.

    Thanks.

    You know - they are a year older... more hormonal...

    Learn to argue your point - weirdly enough it will help long run - it assist you formulate a robust argument to support your opinion. It will also hopefully encourage you to be braver to voice your opinions - maybe not today, but later in the year... You can turn a possibly negative situation into a possitive one by learning life skills as well as English comp

    Anyways enough, you are being bombarded...

    Hope it gets better

    Discussing and picking things a part is of the main things NTs use to learn. Kids do have a habit of going overboard with anything they're individually prone to, though.

    Don't be. That wasn't a type based mistake at all.

    There isn't anything inherently wrong with complaints -- it reveals your inner feelings on the matter & shines light as to how you should handle them --, however, moping around is the worst means of responding to negativity.
