Live your life as your true self, never straddle the fence. If in fear of reprisal (knots on your head emotionally/physically), always remember you will receive them either way you wish to live your life. Consequences? What reflects in your life, reflects in the mirror. Ref. - Dorian Gray.

*Heroic face* Drugs and Crime is a waste of your time and your to good for that. or you can sing this song " Don't be a fool stay in school, let your mind become a tool blah blah blah i cant remember the rest society, society!!! there's more but u have to look it up its a good song its a Bahamian song
1) It's important to learn about the decades before you were born, it will show you how the world became what is it now and will give you an idea where it's headed, and why.
2) One day you will realize that you've already lived through a social, political, economic, or cultural trend that is happening again and you will be angry that so many other people think it's brand new. You will also be scared because you know how it ended last time.
3) As you get older you will progressively become as wise and as cool as you always thought you were when you were younger.
Family and your education should always come before relationships, I learned this the hard way...but I'm glad I learned it before it was too late. Never let yourself be held back by a relationship, always strive to reach your goals, even if it means you have to be away from your significant other. Never base your life around a relationship, because a relationship status can change in a blink of an eye. If you let go of your friends, become distant from your family, and neglect your education, then you will have to spend a great deal of time trying to get it all back if/when your relationship ends. Do yourself a favor and set goals and boundaries for yourself before you get involved with someone.

Never poke fun at older people; they have gained so much wisdom (hopefully), and many have such interesting stories to tell. Accept their love and insight into situations; ask their opinion about things; make them feel as important as they are. This is a great way to raise your self esteem; if you can value others, you value yourself.
i would them to never miss on a thing which they love. because sometime we give up on the things that we love for the things we "have to do". and later we regret for not doing them. i remember how many times i missed an opportunity of playing soccer with my friends, just because i had some homework assignments. now all my friends are gone to their distant respective colleges and i wish they i could relive the moments of enjoying their company.
Don't think voting is enough. Hold your politicians accountable for their promises. That means showing up when they come home from DC to meet with you and hear what you have to say. So often only 10 people show up and when they return 3 months later only the same 10 people show up. No wonder they forget about us when they go to DC. Care about the future of those younger than you.

Think for yourself. Trust yourself. Be open minded & Investigate from many angles, perspectives and sources. Think of consequences and reactions all down the line. Stand for what's right. Be a bright light shining in the darkness. Though if may seem many times you stand alone - you are not. Stand on the side of love and compassion. Remember, everyone is carrying an awful large load just trying to make their way. Evil prospers when good men/women stand by doing nothing. View the TED talks on youtube and TED.com. -many brilliant people and ideas going on right now all over the world - TED is a gold mine. Between the Internet and swarm theory - it is a new world - instant information and instant communication everywhere which was never possible before. The day after High School, all those people and what they think won't matter one little bit. Life is not easy, do not expect it to be. The sun rises and gives you a new day to start again - a new chance to be that best person you are and to help anyone along the way. Stand and show the bright light of the bottomless font of love within you. We all fall down but it's about the getting up again.
Never buy anything that seems good, it could just be garbage when you play with it. Don't ever make your teachers mad, um, make friends, or you'll seem like a loser. Don't marry someone that you like, but they don't, get involved, don't smoke! It's really bad for you, or drink alcohol, don't let bad people get to you, don't get a facebook account, there is bad stuff on there. Go to a good school, get a good job, and of course... MAKE YOUR LIFE COUNT(:
um hmm this is hard one ok here we go always guess b on a test and dont go with the flow its so boring be yourself that is fun and love you love not everyone else go for it dont be a fun sucker oh and say what enimen says you got enemies good that means you stood up for something in your life
Always treat others the way want to be treated in return. If you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem. Don't do things when you are young that you don't want remembered when you are older. No one owes you anything in life. If you want something you need to earn it. It makes you appreciate it so much more than if it's handed to you on a sliver platter.
Get an education. Even if you are going to "just be a mom"...life changes. You can lose everything, even the piece of paper it is printed on, but an education is FOREVER yours. Living in a tiny house with nothing with a person that you love that loves you is better than a mansion filled with everything with a person you do not love. And even on your WORST day, see the small wonders - having love, a home, food, clothing, your health, and pocket money is all you need. The car you drive, the address you have, the things you own are nothing. Love, happiness, and health are everything you need. Give to charities whenever you can, rescue that dog off of the road, pay for someone's meal at least once a year, volunteer, and NEVER stop kissing - kiss everyone goodbye, goodnight, hello, because your love them, because you are walking by the sofa, because they are helping you, because they did the dishes, because...because...because. And forgive yourself each day...the mistakes you made that day are over...do better tomorrow.
Don't underestimate the advice of your elders. You've grown up your whole life being told what to do and reach a point where you want to do what you want to do whether it's a good idea or not. Sometimes you need to do that, but also keep in mind that that happens and maybe consider letting some of that advice slip through and reach you.
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong, because some time in your life you will have been all of these.- George Washington Carver
