Ten Things I Wish I Had Known in High School

Another meme from this post on 2Peas.

circa 1990

10. It’s not all about the clothes.

9. Have some guts. Wallflowers rarely have fun. Make life easier on your younger siblings by giving your parents a little bit of a hard time once in a while.

8. Pink glasses may be cute on the shelf…but they are not cute on a fair-skinned young woman. They look like goggles.

7. When it comes to hair, bigger is not better. EVER.

6. That boy you have liked since the fifth grade…psst, he likes you too (but he won't tell you until the day before graduation).

5. When the oil pressure light of your best friend’s car comes on, stop driving immediately. PS. Immediately does not mean 5 miles down the road.

4. Get a job. You’ll be a happier person when you have a job.

3. It’s okay to be girly. Carry the purse. Buy as many shoes as possible. Don’t give in to too many pairs of jeans.

2. No one has a perfect life, no matter how they look on the outside.

1. You are talented and bright. Yes, you. Your life is what you make it. So make it.
