Most of this is going to sound super cliche, but it's one hundred percent true and based off my experiences.

- Your best friends from middle school will most likely not be your best friends at graduation. And that's okay.
- Teachers are not always going to be fair, they will choose favorites, it's okay to not be a favorite, just relax and count the days until summer.
- Your GPA matters, but it does not define you. Yes you need a good one to graduate and go to a nice college, but in five years, no one will care if you were in the top ten in your class.
- Don't make out in the hallways, it's gross and you need to go to class instead of swapping spit. Those hallways are already too crowded.
- DON'T STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HALL. People will find you annoying and you will probably get pushed. That's you're fault. Move off to the side if you need to stop.
- Create bonds with teachers! They'll help you a lot. My homeroom teacher was like a friend to me and bought me Disney princess socks because they reminded her of me.
- Don't drink or smoke or doing anything else illegal. I went through high school without doing it and I still had a great time.
-Don't date juniors or seniors. You are 13/14. They are 16-18. They only want one thing from you so stay far away!
- Go to school events. I didn't go to many and I really wish I went to more.
- Enjoy it. It goes by in the blink of an eye.

Good luck! Have a great year! Have a great four years!
