I'm really not sure what to classify myself as...I wasn't popular, but I wasn't a loser. I was no nerd, and didn't really join anything. I guess I could be classified as the boy crazy one who had enough friends to keep her busy and sane.

I went to an all-girls private Catholic high school. I think there was around 170 in our graduating class. Our colors were blue and white and our mascot was an Eagle...pretty lame if you ask me.

I would tell them that school work is important. It really does prepare you for college. Pay attention in classes you're not sure you're interested, sometimes they can spark an interest you didn't realize you had. Make sure to find a group of friends that share the same beliefs, morals, and interests in you. Be kind to everyone. Make sure to have FUN. Tons of it! Go out, do all the "typical" high school things. Date boys who are all wrong for you, and some who are all right for you. Enjoy every moment, even the bad ones. Make as many memories as you can, because these can be some of the best days of your life.
