the perfect guide

What's next for Alex and Maggie?

Where is the Alex/Maggie Supergirl scoop you promised? — Brenda
Right here. Though Alex and Maggie smooched in the winter finale, their blossoming relationship has a long way to go. “There’s definitely some bumps,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells me. “Just because they are together now doesn’t mean it’s going to go smoothly. Alex has never been in this kind of relationship before and she’s going to make some rookie mistakes that they’ll have to get past. Maggie has been presented as being the perfect guide for Alex’s journey this season, but Alex is going to learn that Maggie isn’t perfect, which is going to lead to some difficult situations coming down the road.”

PSA: You don’t have to be perfect

There is so much pressure to be perfect and there are some good things to remember

It’s ok to take a day off

It’s ok if you don’t have perfect handwriting

It’s ok to get a bad grade, it happens to all of us

It’s ok to ask for help

It’s ok to be bad at a subject

It’s ok to be bad at sports

It’s ok to drop an extracurricular if your schedule is to full

It’s ok if you don’t go to a heavily selective university

It’s ok if you don’t take AP’s or honors classes

Just remember to do whatever is right for you  and your health and work as hard as you can
