Here are a few of the things that I've learned from going through high school. These are all the things that I wish I knew when I was in high school.

Do things for yourself- not for anyone else: Wear makeup because it makes you feel good, do your hair because it makes you feel good, join that club if it's what you love to do. Self-love is the best love.

Make your education a priority: Learning is a wonderful thing and if you really think about it, it can actually be pretty fun. Focus in class. If it helps, get colored pens and highlighters and stickers, anything that will help you stay motivated to write neat notes and keep things organized. Pay attention to the instructions given in by the teacher and put 100% into everything you do. Try not to procrastinate (trust me, you'll thank yourself later).

Take advantage of extra help and extracurricular activities: These are a great way to enhance or support your knowledge and skills, and a great way to make friends or build connections with teachers.

Think before you speak or act: Once you say or do something, you can't take it back. Think about that. If you say or do someting hurtful, you'll have to deal with the guilt and the consequences that come with it, and it's not going to be fun. Getting into drama in highschool is useless. I repeat, USELESS! Just try your best to stay in your lane, and mind your own business. Remember to always be kind, you don't know what people are going through, try adding light into people's lives instead of removing it.

Enjoy every moment: Don't forget to live life! It'll be surprising how fast time will seem to have gone by once you're in your final year. Live every moment to the fullest, and cherish it. Because you won't ever be this young again, things will never be the exact way they are right now. Take risks, love, laugh, make the most out of everything.

Most importantly, remember that highschool is just a small part of your life. Whatever you go through, you'll get through it and it'll be over. Life will continue and you'll be ok.

Sending all of you love and best wishes for the upcoming school year ♥︎
