~ What a pain shaving has become.
~ To really think before I speak….”All the pain of human life is caused by words, as is all the joy”
~ To enjoy high school to the fullest…Not to grow up so fast. After being in the real world, I realize I should have appreciated not having responsibilities and having to work.
~ No one cares about high school after high school. It does not matter who you were, what you did and who you were friends with.
~ Not to wear my heart on my sleeve. I have always been way too sensitive and shown my emotions openly. Nothing wrong with being emotional but be careful who you make yourself vulnerable to.
~ Not to get married too young or too soon. It will save a lot of trouble in the future.
