Being different, in any way, usually makes you a target for ridicule. Kids can be mean. You need to hang in there and do what you know is right. I was made fun of for getting good grades in school. I thought the people making fun of me were dumb fools that were more worried about a hot date on the weekend then they were about the rest of their life. Don't get me wrong, I worried about hot dates too, but I didn't let it over shadow what I knew was the right to do.
Where do you meet people? Do you have any clubs or hobbies? You need to meet people that have similar interests as you.
