No one is paying as much attention to you as you think.
Everyone is to busy thinking about what other people think of them.
Take your grades more seriously in the first 2 years.
If you don't you will regret it your junior and senior year.
It's okay to be different.
Release your inner weirdness.
Don't be ashamed about stuff that make you happy.
Fitting in is not worth sacrificing your happiness to please someone else.
Embrace the things that make you different.
Stay away from toxic people.
You'll know who they are when you meet them
Don't be afraid to join a club.
Dye your fucking hair.
Just go ahead and do it because why not?
The right guy for you is out there.
But you may or may not find him in high school.
Wear what you want.
Don't be afraid to wear something bold. Your clothes reflect your individuality.
Pizza is great.
But for some reason its even better on a Friday night after a football game.
GO TO MORE FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL GAMES!
I don't care if you think they're lame. Even if you don't understand the game. Just go. It's nice to get out of the house.
It's okay to not belong to clique or group.
You'll find your place in the world eventually, and when you do there will be friends there waiting for you.
Senior year will come faster than you think.
