Monday, June 13th, 2005

1) Popularity doesn’t affect how you do in life
2) It’s OK to be different from everyone else, it’s actually pretty cool
3) Screw going steady with one boy - there’s a lot of fish in the sea.
4) There is a whole world outside of the 4 mile radius outside of my highschool
5) Kids in the suburbs are WAY different from the kids in the city
6) As much silly drama that happens in high school, it truly is a time to be cherished. The stupid things you stress about in highschool are nothing compared to ‘real life’!
7) A metallic fuschia and black prom dress isn’t something I’ll look back at fondly
8) Screw going into college as a psych major, computer science is where it’s at!
9) Either take drama class, or try out for a play. In the future, you’re going to be in the theater and have no idea what they’re talking about.
10) Stop being a bratty princess and learn to respect your parents. You don’t know how much time you’ll have with them, and you need to realize how important they are in your life.
