To The Girls In High School

When you’re in high school, you think it’ll never end. You think that you’ll be friends with these people for the rest of your life. You think you’ll marry your first love. You think you’ll always have more time.
But the truth is, you probably won’t be friends with these people for much after high school. You probably won’t marry your first love. And you don’t always have more time.
High school is over in a blink of eye, literally. One day you’re walking in a freshmen, and the next you’re walking a senior for the last time. And the last time is just as hard and sad, as the first time. You go to high school for for years, and you think it’ll never end, so you do as little as possible, you just go to school and leave as fast as possible. But then it’s over and you realize you wish you could have done more.
To the girls in high school, let me tell you few things, let me help you out.

  1. High school, goes incredibly fast. At first it feels like it’ll never end, I know. I was in that place, but I promise it ends. It ends to fast. So while you’re there, enjoy it. Go to the school homecoming game, the homecoming pep-rallies, the homecoming dance, go to all the stupid little things. Because once it’s done, it’s done, and you can’t do it again. Join a club, and be proud to be apart of it. Join band, or choir and enjoy going to the competitions, and the family that comes with it. Try out for the school play, even if you think you suck at acting. Just do everything and anything that you can possible do. Because those are the things you’ll look back on and love.
  2. Your first love is an amazing thing. You usually fall to fast, and to hard. And let me tell you, your first love, is usually not your last. I feel in love with a guy, and let me tell you, he was my first but he’s not my last. Don’t let that stop you from going off to college, or following a dream. Don’t let having a boyfriend now stop you from living your life to the fullest. Because I promise you’ll regret it. And no matter what they say, or how much they love you, always (ALWAYS) use protection if you’re going to have sex.
  3. You can say no. You can say no to parties, drinking, sex, anything. You are in no way obligated to do anything you don’t want to do. Thankfully, I never had the experience of a guy trying to force himself on me. Thankfully, when I said no, it was respected. But I had a friend who didn’t. And it killed her. Learn how to protect yourself, learn that saying no isn’t wrong, and learn how to talk to someone trust worthy. Weather it’s your parents, a friend, or a teacher. Have someone that you feel you can talk to. It’s important.
  4. Remember, you’re young. In high school you’re usually 14 – 18 years old. You are still allowed to ask for help or advice. Don’t think you can carry the whole world. If you need help, ask.
  5. Have fun! Have so much fun, that you make memories that you’ll never forget. Take photos, and videos, and post them on social media, for the hell of it. Enjoy being able to get away with being young and having fun.
  6. Life doesn’t revolve around money. I had a job my junior and senior year in high school, and there were more times then not that I end up missing out because I had to work. Having money of your own is nice, but your life shouldn’t revolve around cash. I can’t tell you how many class I feel asleep in because I was so tired from work the nigh before. I can’t tell you how many time I called in because I wanted to go out with my friends. I enjoyed my job, but I always wanted to go out. Remember that working shouldn’t mess with school, first and foremost, but also remember that having a job shouldn’t be the biggest part of your high school life. I look back, and I all I see is the nights I worked. I don’t regret the job I had, because it was very carefree, I made a ton of friends, memories, and I met someone very important to me now, but if I could do it over, I wouldn’t have worked nearly as much as I did.
  7. Life goes on. Here’s the thing, when they start telling you about taking the SATs and the ACTs, applying for colleges, and visiting them, listen! Listen to them! It is so important that you take that all in. When I was a junior, and they started talking about SATs and ACTs, I was heartbroken, and I let that get to me. I took the SATs and I got an awful score, and then when it was the end of the year, and they were talking about retaking it, I was just starting a new relationship and I let it be. I didn’t really think about it. Of course I was the dumb girl, who though I was going to be with that guy for a lot longer then what happened (we broke up like a month after graduation) and I didn’t apply to a single college. I didn’t look for scholarships, nothing. Because when I started talking about applying to somewhere farther away, it was this big deal. I wish back then, I would have said, “if it’s worth it, it’ll work” because I probably would have been off at college now, had I said or thought that.
  8. After graduation, people grow up and change. Everyone does this, and it’s not really that they change who they are, but maybe it’s little things. They aren’t who they were in high school, it happens. It just happens

So, if you have learned anything, I’ll give you a recap. It goes by fast, first loves are amazing, saying no is a good thing, ask for help, have fun, life isn’t about money (yet), listen to college talk, and remember that people grow up and change.

Love, Megan Anne

  7. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to tell someone!

  8. I have been browsing online over three hours today,
    yet I in no way found any interesting article like
    yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me personally.
    For me, if all site owners and bloggers made good
    content material as you probably did, the internet could
    possibly be a lot more helpful than previously.

  9. Howdy! Would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter group?

    There’s a lot of folks that I think would really appreciate your
    content. Please let me know. Thanks

  10. I have got been exploring for a little for any high-quality articles or blog posts within this sort of area .
    Exploring in Yahoo I finally discovered this site. Reading this information So
    i am just happy to convey that I’ve a very good uncanny feeling I found out exactly what I needed.
    I this type of lot without doubt will make sure to tend not to overlook this site and offers
    it a glance on a relentless basis.

  11. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom will i encounter your blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve
    hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am delighted that I came across this during my seek out something in regards to this.

  12. Wow, awesome blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?
    you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your website is
    fantastic, as well as the content!

    1. Awww thanks! Honestly it’s a lot of work. I sometimes struggle a lot to get out good and quality stuff. (I can’t think of the right word all the sudden, whoops!) Thank you, you’ve made my night! ๐Ÿ™‚ -Meg

  13. Spot up with this write-up, I seriously feel this amazing site needs considerably more attention. I’ll more likely
    be returning to learn through more, thanks for the info!

  14. It’s genuinely very complex within this full of activity life to listen news on Television, therefore I only use
    internet for that purpose, and get the hottest news.

  15. I am aware this site presents quality based articles or reviews and
    additional data, will there be every other website which provides these information in quality?

  16. Very nice post. I really found your weblog and wished to state that I have really
    enjoyed surfing around your website posts. In any event I am going to be subscribing for your feed and that i
    hope you write again very soon!

  17. I blog frequently and I genuinely thank you for
    your content. Your article has truly peaked my interest.
    I’m going to take a note of your blog and keep checking for
    new information about once a week. I opted in for your RSS feed as well.

  18. fantastic submit, very informative. I ponder why the opposite experts with this
    sector usually do not realize this. You should continue your writing.

    I’m confident, you’ve an incredible readers’ base already!

  19. Hmm it looks such as your site ate my first comment
    (it absolutely was super long) thus i guess I’ll just
    sum it up things i wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your site.

    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m
    still new to everything. Have you got any points for beginner blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    1. Well that sucks, I’m sorry about that! I’ll have to look into it! And thanks you for checking it out!
      Any pointers? Honestly, I’m still so new myself, but one thing I have learned that it great for after publishing is networking. Blog’s can take off on there own, but to really get your content out there, you have to be willing to put yourself out there on social media and truly be who you are. I do a lot of it threw twitter, and I’ve found a ton of great girls who blog as well, to connect with. As far a writing, don’t push yourself to much, sometimes it’ll come easy and sometimes you’ll have to really work at it. Things that I’m more passionate about come easy, and other times, I can barley find the right words.
      Just stick with it! -Meg! ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?

  22. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.

  23. I am really loving the theme/style of your website. Do you ever come across
    any browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?

    1. Honestly I’ve only ever had one person tell me my imagines were loading but when I looked threw different browsers I found nothing. It’s truly about how big your photos are and how your placing them I believe. I could be wrong, I’m not an expert by an means. Hope that’s helpful -Meg
