I hope yours is filled with light.
Pay attention to those stupid, cliche signs hanging up in classrooms - y'know, the ones that say, "In 10 years it won't matter what clique you were in... what you did... what you wore..." because honestly, they're true. It doesn't matter. All those insecurities and problems are completely unimportant.
Those videos you make with your friends where you dress up in funny outfits and host fake talk shows… you think you’re just being an idiot and having fun with your friends. In a few years, you’ll still be an idiot and have fun with your friends... except professionally on a stage.
Be nicer to your family. It may be dysfunctional and weird, but they love you so much and support you no matter what you do. Even when you come home at 9am with puffy lips after a night of making out (and they'll just ignore it like the good, terrified parents they are.)
You will lose your virginity and it won’t be glamorous. You’ll fall in love and it won’t work. But you’ll soon discover you’re not the scum of the Earth – because gosh darn it, people LOVE you and you deserve all the same luxuries as everyone else.
Stop wearing sweatshirts and sweatpants every day! You look like a fool! You’re afraid of standing out now? Just wait a few years – your hair’s going to be bright red, your glasses thick and black, and you’ll be sort of – dare I say it – fashion forward.
