An Open Letter To: Incoming High School Freshman
Hello friends. We’re getting to the time of year that every parent loves and every student hates, the beginning of the school year. I know that it is a crazy and stressful time, but it is also meant to be the best time of your life. So with that being said, here are some things you need to know before starting high school.
How I Found Myself
Things never work out exactly how you expect them to. There is always a moment when something clicks and you realize that maybe you were wrong… or maybe you were right. Maybe things change for the better or the worse, but maybe, things just flip.

7 Things I Wish I Knew About Dating
It seems that love and relationships are everywhere: in movies, at school, on TV, and on billboards.
