“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light” -Harry Potter

Hey girlies,

To start off my post, I am going to give you guys some tips for High School. Summer is quickly coming to a close, and I know there a bunch of girls out there who are nervous about becoming new freshman!

Never’s & Always’ for High School

Always show off your true interests. Like math? Join the math club. Don’t worry about what other people will think of you because there are so many types of people in high school. You will find your niche and those people will become your best friends. Be true to yourself and your interests so you can find the friends you were meant to have.

Never think of your friends as a “clique”. No matter how cool they try to make clique’s in movies and books, in real life they suck and everyone hates them. It’s alright to have your best friends that you hang out with all the time, but make sure you include others and meet new people. High school is all about making friends and expanding your social group so make sure you get the most out of it by getting to know the other students.

Always be nice. There is nothing worse than a girl who thinks she is better than everyone else or a girl who snaps for no reason. In high school, people will hate you if you act like a catty mean girl.

Never date the first guy who shows interest in you. Once you are in high school, it’s alright to date someone without being their girlfriend. Make sure you keep your options open and “browse” around. You’ll meet older guys, younger guys, guys in your grade, and guys from other schools. Make sure you don’t rush into anything to avoid any awkward run-ins with your ex.

Always have a unique sense of style. Make sure you develop a unique “look” so that you stand out from all the other girls. Keep in mind you shouldn’t change your “look” too often. Mixing it up from one extreme to another will make people think you are fake and not true to yourself.

I really hope my tips helped you guys! Good luck to all the incoming freshman πŸ™‚

The winners were:

  1. http://imassiekur4ever.wordpress.com/

To read my example for the third challenge clique here and to read the contestant’s entries clique here.

Challenge 4, the last challenge, is due to me on August 23rd. Make sure you send me your drafts and I’ll edit them for you guys! I will be announcing the winner of the entire contest shortly after all your entries are in and then I will be giving you all your fabulous prizes πŸ™‚

The last challenge is to write yourself a letter. Write it as your 80 year old self to the current you. I want you to give your current self advice which can be about anything. You can also include some tid-bits of information about what happened in your life. When writing this, write it from the perspective of the life you want to have. Make your 80 year old self be the person you hope to be, and to have lived the life you hope to live. This last challenge needs to be your best work and it needs to be written in your personal writing style.

If you have any questions ask me and email me any drafts.

Now for the second round of polls for The WordPress Awards!

The rules are all the same, and all of the hosts will have the polls on their blogs too. The polls have been narrowed down to the top winners in the last set of polls.

The first name in each poll, is the girl that won the first round. For example, look at the poll below. For best updater, Natalie had the most votes, Massie’s Official Blog got second, with OMEB in third. All the polls are set up that way so you guys can see who won the polls last time.

You have roughly a week to vote in these polls, so make sure you do so asap!

Good luck girls!

Hosts & Alpha Worthy blogs:
