Quotes by Hale_Storm18

1. your middle school best friend, the one you share all your laughs with and can't imagine not being friends with, will only be a familiar face that you'll share a smile with across the room during high school graduation,

2. popularity doesn't matter. at all. be nice to everyone, don't be stuck up in who you talk to, stay down to earth. high school isn't just about climbingto the top and building contacts. one day you're going to look back and wonder who your true friends were and what motives others had in gaining your friendship. take the time to get to know those you normally wouldn't, and you'll be very surprised.

3. the loneliness you feel right now is not permanent. there will be a moment, maybe months or years from now, where you feel this overwhelming warmness, and you will look around at the people surrounding you and think, "hey maybe all that sadness and loneliness was worth getting to this point". and you will smile and everything will be ok.

4. don't get sucked into the "i'm too cool to study" phase. stop glorifying netflix, going to sleep late, and barely getting your work done. find your motivation and don't let anyone hold you back. there will be kids at school who will love to brag "i didn't study for this test" and "oh dude i stayed up till 1am last night". i promise that doesn't make them cool or bad 
áss. in fact, most people who claim they haven't cracked a book open, have actually studied more than you think. hold your own, be productive. you don't want to look back on a test, a quarter, a semester, a year and think "dámn, i wish i had done more". give it your all and you will reap the benefits.

5. don't lose your spontenanity -- don't get sucked into the same rigid routine. regularity is great but you can't lose your spark. it will crush you, years down the line, when you realize you've forgotten what it's like to do something without overly planning it, without worrying about homework, without a million other items on your to-do list creeping into the back of your mind.

6. when you're having a sh
ítty night, just go to sleep. seriously turn your phone off, close the computer, and get into bed. i promise that is the only solution.

7. when someone invites you to plans, always say yes. even if you're exhausted, curled up watching a movie in pajamas. even if you feel like you want some alone time, or if you don't feel 100 percent comfortable in the social situation (not in a dangerous way but a meeting new people way) -- say yes. you won't regret the experiences.

8. make yourself painfully aware of the compartmentalized characteristics and cookie-cutter personas you put on and that others put on. be concious of the characters the media has ingrained in our society, and remind yourself that being "the cool girl" doesn't mean drinking beer and eating burgers and letting guys step all over you so you can seem chill. reading and writing doesn't make you "nerdy" just like playing sports doesn't make you cool. these are associations we have been taught by movie scripts and novels. you don't have to be one thing or the other -- you can wake up early one morning, make yourself a smoothie, and be that "yoga" girl. then the next day you can stay out all night and live recklessly. you don't have to feel like you need to fit into a persona.

9. not everyone will like you, and that's okay. stop trying to please everyone -- it's impossible. radiate confidence -- even if it's fake confidence, eventually it will become real. once you can do this, you will be untouchable.

10. it's not weird to go places alone -- you don't always need to find a friend to enjoy yourself. go for a walk, a bike ride. read at a coffee shop, take yourself out to lunch, drive somewhere interesting. don't spend your day in a big ole box -- you are alive, you are full of life and energy and so much potential. use it, move around, feel restless, and don't settle for staying idle.

advice for high schoolers


not all girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice. some girls are made of sarcasm and wine and nothing is fine.
i'm a strange lipstick color, i'm the shimmer in cheap shampoo, i'm a shoplifted beauty product, i'm eyeliner on the back of a hand, i'm a blue finger from a cheap ring, i'm glitter you can't get off your skin, i'm beautiful in the most disgusting ways and i'm never going to die
concept: i'm laying on your lap. you're playing with my hair. quilts and sweaters keep us warm. you're happy. i'm not anxious or sad. everything is okay.
do you guys realize we can change our lives any time we want like you can just go ahead and delete your blog, stop eating meat, shave your head, start running, tell that person you hate why you hate them so much, confess your love to someone and kiss them unexpectedly like why don't we do that
ya i'm prettier in pictures, sorry you can't view me froma strategic 85 degree phone angle in warm lighting 24/7 ok i'm upset about it too

i. if love is desirable why do we compare it to falling? (make reference to icarus, and the color of his eyes in the sun)

ii. on a scale of one to ten how messy is your bedroom right now? (compare this to the past, and the way he makes you feel at 2 am)

iii. why do you write poetry? (mention the way he tilts his head when he laughs, and how he moves his hands when he talks)

iv. why are you awake? (he f
úcks up your head and he fúcks up your heart and he fúcks up your sleeping pattern and he doesn't even know, he doesn't even know)

"we have calcium in our bones, iron in our veins, carbon in our souls, and nitrogen in our brains. 93 percent stardust, with souls made of flames, we are lal just stars that have people names."

"she is under no obligation to look beautiful to you. she is already beautiful, her smile already breaks hearts, her eyes already shine brighter than stars, her soul already burns with passion and the intensity of a thousand forest fires, and her heart already blazes like a comet. but you are looking at her so superficially, you just can't see it."
