This is what I would tell my younger self:
Your social life is not over if you don't have plans for Saturday evening by Wednesday afternoon.
True friends don't test your friendship.
Wear sunscreen and embrace your paleness. If not, this WILL come back to haunt you!
Don't care so much about what others think of you. They are more concerned with themselves.
Focus on school more!
Don't be sad that you can't afford brand-name clothes like some other girls at school. They don't define whether someone is a likable person.
Stand up for yourself more often. You don't need to take shit!
Pick your friends wisely.…
