So. I've been thinking;
1. You only find a few people in this world, a few people who will tell you they love you and actually mean it with all their heart. Don't forget those people who stood by you through it all, the special few that were there for you until the end.
2. I have this theory that the more important and intimatethe emotion, the fewer words are required to express it.For instance, in dating. ‘Will you go out with me?’ Sixwords. ‘I think I care for you.’ Five words. ‘You matterto me.’ Four words. ‘I love you.’ Three words. ‘Marry me.’Two words. So what’s left? What’s the one most importantand intimate word you can ever say to somebody? It’s ‘goodbye.'
3. You have four years to be irresponsible here. Relax. Work is for people with jobs. You’ll never remember class time, but you'll remember time you wasted hangingwith your friends. So, stay out late. GO out on a Tuesday when you have a paper due Wednesday. Spend Monday you don't have. Drink 'til sunrise. The work never ends, but high school does.
4. look at people holding hands in the hallways, and I try to think about how it all works. at the school dances, I sit in the background and I tap my toe, and I wonder howmany couples will dance to 'their song'. in the hallways, I see the girls wearing the guys' jackets and I think about the idea of property. and I wonder if anyone is really happy. I hope they are. I really hope they are. We all say that we want to be skinny, beautiful, and wear the best clothes.We say we want to look like the girls in Hollywood but I think what we really want behind the words that we say is confidence.
Life beats down and crushes the soul, and art reminds you that you have one...
