      Say hello to people. Be kind to everyone. Make friends that make you feel special and happy. It’s okay to say no to things you don’t want to do, but I would recommend trying to get involved in a few extra-curricular- they are such great ways to make new friends. Also, please please be yourself. I know that school can be a scary place, but the most important thing to remember is to spend your time being someone that YOU like to spend time with.

      Good luck, you will do amazing xx

      Don’t hang out with the wrong kids and just be yourself, even if you find yourself a little weird, follow your intuition and don’t be a dogma. Do what you love and be serious about it. And if you fail, don’t give up. Lol this is too deep😂😂

      Humor is always the best way. The saying, “Laughter is the best medicine”, has some truth to it. I’ve gotten out of lots of awkward moments, and social pressure by using humor and a buttload of sass. Not only does humor help you make friends and get out of bad situations, but you’d be surprised by what a smile can do for some people. In my experience, making someone laugh, maybe just a giggle, can brighten up their day when maybe they’ve fallen on hard times. Even with all of this though, you have to still be confident enough to say no, humor just makes it easier. 🙂
