I hate to be "mean" right off the bat, because you're quite welcome here, but please, in the future, make an effort to make posts in normal english instead of slang-style abbreviations. Several of us are college or graduate level students, and having to sort through "haf" and "cos" is hard on our brains, or at least irritating. But please don't take this to mean that we don't like you because you're in highschool or anything like that.

as to sharing/opinions, I think you would be better served by not trying to earn money for nice clothes right now, tempting though it is (God do I know). Instead concentrate on studying for that exam, hard though it is to concentrate (I know on that one, too). I'm not sure how the Austrailian system works (is that where you are?) but I know in the U.S. you can get scholarships for college if you're a good student, and there are student loans, too. Perhaps you also have some extended family who could help you buy text books?

Now this is the really pedantic part of this comment: I remember when I was in high school my social life seemed so important. I worried about who liked me and who didn't, about whether my hair was cute, about what I was wearing, about if I was too fat, about who was going out was who and if I would have a prom date. By the end of my freshman year of college, I still talked to only 2 people from my high school. All that time I wasted was....just that, wasted. it always sounds arrogant when older people tell you none of it will matter, but it's true. School is seriously the most important thing, because all those people are going to filter out of your life and you're going to meet new ones. Gah. I feel like I'm being condescending, but I don't mean to be.

I wish I could give you good advice on how to stay focused, but that's why I'm here, too!
