Any advice at all would be great

  • I just left college woohoo 🎉

    Anyways, play hard, study harder. Don't do drugs. It's good to have fun reasonably, but also remember to study once awhile (this coming from someone that doesn't study - but I'm kinda different lol I take arts and music which isn't difficult at all if compared to the sciencey subs). Cherish whatever you have right now. One day, you'd look back at it and laugh at all the silly stuffs you've did, so don't be afraid to do silly stuffs. Take chances. Whatever you do, have no regrets, cause at one point in your life, that was what you wanted.

  • This time in your life will define everything else in the future.

    Get a girl knocked up? You'll probably end up raising a family of 4, with a basic job. Your entire life will be about family and work. Or become a fuckboy and live free against the limits.

    Focus on nothing but school? You'll probably go to college, spending a lot of time studying, and wondering what about life you're missing. Maturity will be high, but excitement will be low.

    People with more experience have good advice on what they're experienced with. That's something you should learn real quick. It's why you should trust your parents' opinions. If they say you're wrong, they MIGHT be right.

    Try to understand why people have their opinions. Always put yourself in their situation. It'll help you figure out why they have their beliefs, and better tell you why they're wrong. Racists are taught to be racists. Idiots are raised to be idiots. Don't hate them, pity them. Understand them. Then you can understand them enough to fix them.

    Become independent. The sooner you live your own life, the sooner you'll be an adult. You are never truly an adult until you no longer need to rely on someone.

    You probably won't experience true love for a long time. When you no longer need to make them happy, or when they are just a part of your life and no longer a prize, THAT'S when you love them. Most people trust their parents to always be there. They don't focus on trying to earn their love, or how to make them happy. You KNOW they love you, and they trust you, and they'll always be there, and you take that for granted.

    That's true love. When you can realize you're taking the relationship for granted, and there's more you can be doing, and you realize that you don't have to. They still love you, even when you don't do those things.
    If you haven't experienced that with a significant other, you haven't loved them. Wanting to be with them and cherishing them isn't love. That's akin to having a new pet that you're obsessed about for the first couple weeks. Love isn't about obsession. It's about mutual trust.

    Learn to be patient. Learn to be impatient.
    Maturity is about being capable of both, and knowing when to use both. That sounds dumb, but most people are too much of one than the other. Too afraid of making waves, or not knowing how to control themselves.

    Your happiness should not come at the cost of others. Ever.

  • Appreciate what you have, love fully and strongly, have fun, be serious, be smart. Say what you need to say, if you don't, you'll regret it. Take chances. Things in life may seem rough, and as if they won't get better but it always does. Everybody is different so being yourself is nothing to be ashamed of, even if other people don't understand it. You do you.

  • In a few weeks, you'll wake up one morning and realize that you are 45 years old, the time flew by so fast, and you really miss those days when you were 17 years old and had no responsibilities. Don't waste your time now. Have fun. Spend time with girls and it will develop your confidence. Do well enough in school that you have a future but have some fun!

  • dang that year changed me

    Work hard, study hard. Doesn't matter if it's easy or not. Don't go for the 50 %, always strive to get better
    Hmmm, be yourself? Don't be worried about what others think, don't act Not Like You to have them like you or something?

    And ehm, cherish every moment of it

  • Nothing matters after you graduate. All the cliques and social class means nothing when/if you go to college. So have fun now because this is the 2 years where you don't have a burden of responsibilities.
