My 2 cents
I may not be the smartest person in the world, but I definitely have a lot of wisdom in me just from the things I've experienced so far in my life. I thought maybe I'd share some of them with you now. So sit back and enjoy the ride.
In your car on your way to taking the SAT's (or the ACT's, whatever your wish is) it is probably not a good idea to take apart your calculator to figure out how it works unless you are ABSOLUTELY 100% sure you know how to put it together again the right way.
If you are going to make a fake screen name to harass your friends under and you want to keep it a secret about who you are, make sure you don't ask them about something specific such as "Did you see what Someone wore today?"
Just because a boy kisses you or tells you things, it doesn't mean that they're true. Just because he might tell you that he likes being with you, he's probably got some hidden agenda.
Never leave Cosmic Brownies out in the open. Even if you have had them out for a few weeks, eventually the squirrels/other animals are going to find them.
Don't play games like Truth or Dare, or Skeleton in the Closet unless you're absolutely sure the people you're playing with won't ask about something you don't want to tell about.
Just because people seem happy on the outside, sometimes they really aren't inside. And you never have the right to be mad at someone just because they're in a bad mood. On the same note, just because you're in a bad mood, it doesn't give you the right to take it out on other people.
People will know if you don't like them. So don't pretend.
Teachers know if you're not doing your batik and you're just sitting there wasting time.
Sometimes coaches are wrong. Very wrong. But there is nothing you can do about it.
Double edged sword situations kick my butt.
Always wear a seat belt. No matter what.
Always call someone, don't be wussy or scared. Write a script if you need to.
Sneak up behind boys at dances and freak dance them without letting them know you're there. Then just walk away like nothing happened. Its hilarious. Until they back up and find out you're there. Then they'll get one of their buddies and pull a Night at the Roxberri move on you.
No matter how much you want to believe it won't happen, someday a boy is going to break your heart and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. Nothing.
Sometimes part of letting go of something, is realizing that you probably never had it to begin with.
Pogs are still the coolest, even if they went "out of style" in 1995.
If you're having your favorite meal for dinner, don't eat anything for about 4 hours ahead of time, so you're sure you have a lot of room for dinner.
A fun thing to do is make snow angels in random people's yards and take pictures with NSYNC cameras.
If someone wants to talk to you, make them call you because if you don't want to talk to them, why put it on your phone bill?
Life is too full of random cruelty to take anything personally. Don't let anything someone says keep you down.
Trust expiration dates. They know what they're talking about.
Sometimes it seems like the world is crashing in around you and you can't seem to see the good anymore. Those are the times when you need your friends the most because they'll remind you of those good things. Don't be afraid to let people know what you are thinking during those times.
Crying doesn't make you weak.
Sometimes it doesn't matter how much you believe in something or someone. Sometimes all that matters is that they're just going to take advantage of you, don't try to deny it just because you're still in love with them. You'll just wind up hurting even more in the end.
There are times when the best thing you can do for a friend is offer them a shoulder to cry on and a quiet place for them to just talk to you. Sometimes they won't even need you to talk back, just be there to hold them.
Don't lock your keys in the car. And tell your parents if you do, because they're going to find out sooner or later and your punishment will be a million times worse if they find out from someone else and not you.
Tailgate scholastic bowl meets!!!
Buy indian head dress car ornaments.
Some guys are just assholes. End of story.
This is a quote my cousin had in her profile and its not mine but I couldn't have said it better: "My only regret is that I didn't mean as much to you as you meant to me."
Sometimes the shoulder you want or need to cry on the most, is the one that's making you cry the hardest.
Eventually things are gonna change. Just things in general. People are going to change. Friendships are going to change. You can't stop it. And just because you want it to stop, that doesn't mean it will. You just have to accept that, because if you don't, you'll end up hating life. But if you accept it, you'll realize things aren't as bad as you thought. And don't hate someone just because they've changed. Thats life. And life is definitely not something you can 100% control.
Growing up sucks....and not all kisses are magic, and most boys do not live up to your expectations. But there are those times when everything, I mean love, romance, relationships... it all falls together perfectly, and its incredible... it's those moments, no matter how depressingly few and far between that make growing up worth it.
It's easier to end something before it begins.
Even if he comes back to you, that doesn't mean he's yours.
It's OK to miss the way things used to be. Just don't base your life around it. You'll miss out on the way things should be now.
