Things I told my younger sister before going to high school

Before my little sister had her first day in high school, I gave her some advice on what high school is all about.IMG_2282 (1)

  1. Don’t stand in the middle of the hallway before school. Everyone else is trying to get through, and they have no problem walking through you to get to class.
  2. Go to the home football games. You’ll regret it if you don’t.
  3. Listen to what your teachers are saying. They know what they’re talking about and are only trying to help you.
  4. Do your homework. It matters in high school.
  5. Join a club or sport. You want to get involved to meet new people.
  6. While you may find new friends, choose the ones who you want to be your core group of friends and keep it that way.
  7. Choose your new friends wisely. Their behavior reflects back on to you.
  8. Go to homecoming: whether it’s with friends or a date, you’ll have so much fun.
  9. Talk to mom and dad when you have a problem. They are be more helpful than you think.
  10. Don’t join in the popularity contest. Being nice to everyone leads to more friends in the long run.
  11. Do what you want. Don’t let your friends make you feel bad for joining something that you are interested in.
  12. Dress nicely every now and then. You will feel better about yourself.
  13. It’s okay to have a bad hair day every now and then. It happens to everyone.
  14. Drama will happen it’s inevitable, but that doesn’t mean you have to a part of every little fight. Nobody thinks that it is cool.
  15. Some people say that upperclassmen are so mean, but in reality they aren’t worried about you.
