To all of you starting high school
High school sucks. If anyone tells you different, they’re lying.
High school is not the best 4 years of your life.
High school isn’t everything.
Those kids that make fun of you? 4 years and you’re done. You will never have to communicate with them again. (also karma will get them get back)
Seriously, pay attention and do your homework. You will regret it if you don;t.
BEFRIEND YOUR TEACHERS. They are your friends. Yes, even the mean ones.
The friends you have now, probably won’t be your friends by your last year and that’s okay.
Eat something in morning. Bring a granola bar to school and eat it between classes if you can’t eat in the morning. You will feel better if you eat something.
Push yourself. Colleges want people who push themselves, not people who take all the easy classes.
No one will care about how you acted or what you did by the next day and at most a few weeks.
9 times out of 10, upperclassmen don’t want to just “chill”. They don’t care bout your feelings. If they’re sleeping with you and not an upperclassmen, there’s probably a reason.
Don’t let other people borrow your textbooks. Those things aren’t cheap and you probably won’t see it again.
BE NICE TO EVERYONE. You never know when you’ll need to copy someone’s homework. (I was nice so people let me copy ALL the time)
Copy smart. Copying does you no good if you get caught. High School teachers don’t let that shit slide.
If you choose not to do the reading, PAY ATTENTION IN CLASS AND TAKE LOTS OF NOTES. You can bet your ass there will be a quiz.
If you do Shakespeare or anything that’s hard to read, (A Tale Of Two Cities jfc), if there’s a film version, WATCH IT. It will help you understand it.
Don’t be afraid to ask your teachers for help.
If you can bring coffee, SPILLPROOF CUPS. No one wants spoiled milk. That shit will spill in your locker and you will forget and it will be gross.
KEEP YOUR LOCKER CLEAN. Last thing you want is a detention because you were late because you couldn’t find your textbook from your locker being too messy.
If you’re gonna be late, make that shit count.
For the love of god, don’t send nudes.
Bring your earphones and charger
You’ll be fine. High school sucks but it’s only 4 years and it’ll fly by.
