A Message To High School Girls

Dear high school girl,

I know you feel grown up. You want to look older, find a fake ID, get a boyfriend, put on makeup. But trust me, slow down. Take it from a girl.

None of the guy around you right now really care about you. They only want one thing from you. I promise. I watched it happen to most of my friends.

I wish I could go back and change how I handled situations and my naivety. Don't be an asshole, don't flunk school, don't just party.

I made that mistake. The nerdy guy I was an ass to got amazing jobs and the hot guy throwing parties in high school is still trying to find a job at 25.

You don't realize how important it is to focus on school and learn. I wish I didn't blow off so much school.

I look back on some of my partying nights and wish I had stayed home with my dad watching documentaries instead.

Instead I ended up being a drunk mess and making out with somebody I didn't intend to.

You are 14. Not 25. No need for makeup, heart breaks and serious decision making.

Take it from me. A 24 year old who wishes she was 14 again.
