#1 DO NOT dye or chop all your hair
We have all been there. We get bored. We wanna switch it up so we go on a whim and completely change our hair.. Unfortunately, I have done this far too may times. It started in middle school and it is definitely something that I advocate against now.
#2 You are not going to marry your 6th grade crush
No offense to him. I'm sure he's great and will be great for someone in the future but not for you! Do not waste any more time getting ready in the morning just to impress him because eventually you will look back on all that time and wish you would've used that extra 30 min- 1 hour catching up on sleep instead of watching hair tutorials on YouTube. Trust me!!
#3 Your parents can be your best friends or your worst enemies and it's completely up to YOU
By this I mean, do not lie to them about who you are friends with or tell them you aren't taking that mini skirt to school to change into.. when you are. If you tell them you are going to do something , follow through! They love you and want the best for you. I know you see them as a giant annoyance right now but I promise you down the road you will be so happy to have them on your side.
#4 Go to every school dance and break it down girl
Do not let the fear of looking goofy stop you from having fun.
#5 Cherish these moments you have with your best friends right now because you won't get many more of them
One day soon you will have to move hundreds of miles away from these people who have become family to you. Make sure they know how much they mean to you and the impact they have had on your life. Good or bad. These are the people you created so many memories with and you will never forget them.
