"25 things i wish i realized while i was still in highschool"
-
  1. That zit on your cheek literally does not matter
  2. Skipping class one time will not ruin your entire life
  3. The boy you’re trying so hard to impress will mean nothing to you in a year
  4. Bring coffee to school and ignore people who make fun of it
  5. Bring a snack, too. Don’t care if people hear you eating in class.
  6. Being popular isn’t and will never be something that seriously defines who you are
  7. Appreciate your teachers
  8. Doing/not doing drugs doesn’t make you cooler than anyone else.
  9. Neither does drinking
  10. Talk to the kid sitting alone; even though it may not change your life it could drastically change theirs
  11. Participate in school events
  12. Wear sweatpants everyday
  13. Or wear a dress everyday
  14. Wear whatever makes you comfortable
  15. Nobody will laugh at you if you sit alone at your lunch table for five minutes
  16. Utilize the library
  17. Don’t wait 20 minutes to text someone back just to seem cool
  18. Tell your friends how much you love them
  19. Cherish your free textbooks… seriously
  20. Help confused freshmen, be nice to them. Remember how much you would have appreciated it a couple years ago
  21. Compliment the other girls in the bathroom
  22. That fight you had with your mom really isn’t that big of a deal
  23. It’s okay to cry
  24. Don’t let your desire for a romantic relationship stop you from forming platonic relationships
  25. Remember that life does go on

So today, in my comp class we were talking about abstract nouns and four were put on the board: beautiful, ugly, clean, dirty. My professor, being the teacher she is, asked a boy in the back to describe a female who was beautiful. The boy goes off describing the clothes she would be wearing, her hair, blah blah blah. But apparently he didn’t describe this well enough because my professor responded with, “Well that could be describing an 80 year old woman and I don’t think you’re into older woman, are you?”. The class laughs and she says she’ll get back to him and eventually she did and he still wasn’t truly describing in detail, but the conversation eventually moved on, but I still sat there absolutely fuming. I still haven’t found my confidence in college so I didn’t say anything, but do you know what struck me about this 10 minute or so part of lesson? Nobody talked about personality. Not. One. Person. Not male or female. Really? Do you wants beautiful? i think it’s beautiful when somebody has essence. You talk to them and you find out what makes them, them. They talk about something they are passionate about and their eyes light up and you look at them and they aren’t even there anymore and they’re rambling and they’re somewhere completely different because it’s something that actually means something to them and gives them a reason to live and breath and want to be. When I talk to somebody who is passionate I see beauty, no matter my sexuality. Personality gives people more than just a pretty face and awesome hair, because like so many people know and have said before, those things fucking fade and if you have an ugly personality then you’re shit out of luck.
