but that's the one she looked prettier

Things I Wish I Knew Freshman Year

im entering into my junior year soon. a lot has changed both physically and mentally since 2 years ago. some of this stuff i didnt figure out until recently. maybe it will help some of you too.


  1. figure out how to study. i know youve never done it before and that you don think youll need it, but you will. honors courses are hard, no matter how chill the teacher is.
  2. those latin root word quizzes you take in english are stupid and probably not super necessary. but you have them every week so its important to get a good grade on them. as long as you do a few flashcards the night before and on the way to the class, youll be okay.
  3. sometimes you have shitty teachers that dont teach you the material on the test or sometimes dont even teach at all. you have older friends who will help you and you also have the internet. there is no reason not to know something when the world is at your fingertips.
  4. yes, this town is shitty. but that doesnt mean every single person is. branch out. that shitty friend who hates you is not your only option.
  5. mom doesnt care if youre bi. she also doesnt care if you cut your hair short. live in the moment and do what makes you happy. hair grows out.
  6. be braver. speak up in class more. take the lead in group projects. youre smart and you know what youre doing.
  7. sleep more.
  8. yes, college is important. but youre so, so young. you dont have to know it all right now.
  9. dont worry so much.
  10. people will come and go. be thankful for those who are constant. they are important.
  11. spend more time with the family you like. they miss you and care for you.
  12. spend less time with the family you dont like. theyre bad for your mental health.
  13. dating is weird. thats okay. dont force yourself to date.
  14. do the laundry without complaining. moms stressed out a lot.
  15. walk the dog sometimes. shes getting old and just wants your love.
  16. clean your room, it probably needs it.
  17. theres always something that needs organizing.
  18. spend more time with friends. its okay to take a break from panicking and stressing to go see a movie or hang out at the mall.
  19. stop biting your nails. they look prettier when you grow them out and paint them. youll love it.
  20. be nice to the new kids. they need it.
  21. start learning how to cook basic meals. scrambled eggs and that one pasta dish you like are the best place to start.
  22. start buying tofu. it tastes great and now you dont have to eat that meat you hate the taste of. plus, you can learn more simple things to cook it with.
  23. take pride in what you love. dont apologize for having a passion or a hobby.
  24. be nice to your teachers. not many other people are and theyre human beings too.
  25. dance your heart out at homecoming. no one cares if you look like an idiot. have fun.
  26. its okay to go to homecoming alone. dont force yourself to go with people you dont like just because no one else invited you.
  27. buy quality pens. it’ll change your life.
  28. stop worrying sbout what others think of you. youll leave this town sooner or later.
  29. call your brother. ask how hes doing. you miss each other even if youre both too stubborn to admit it.
  30. buy a heating blanket and that big fluffy white down blanket. theyre the only blankets youll need.
