Dear Freshman, You have not started high school yet, but let me tell you a few things before you do. High school will be the best and worst times of your life.
You will make friends and you will lose them. Try not to make enemies, though sometimes it is unavoidable. Be open to everything, because things will surprise you.
The person you thought you did not want to be friends with will turn out to be your greatest friend and advocate. Do not be too proud to take advice, even if it is from someone younger than you.
Do not be afraid to express yourself.
High school is one of the few times in life where you will be able to express yourself and truly figure out who you are, take advantage!
Despite all the scary things that will take place, enjoy yourself, it only happens once. If I regret anything it was being afraid to express myself and be who I am.
Be loud, proud, and do not look back. These are the first days of the rest of your life. Good luck.
