Hey there! If you're reading this, it looks like you've stumbled upon what's basically my high school diary. It's been many years since I wrote the quotes on here and it's almost surreal to think about how much has changed since then.

Looking back, I wish I could tell myself that I was on to something whenever I hopefully thought about my future. I'd tell younger me that I'm proud of her for all the hard work she's put in and that it'll all be worth the effort someday, many of the things she dreamed of achieving have turned out great thanks to that. I'd tell her that she definitely deserves to be around people who love and appreciate her, just like her best friends did (and still do!). And I'd also say that I know she struggles a lot with her feelings for boys who never seem to like her back, but that she'll meet a great guy when the time is right. It won't always be easy, but she'll get the relationship she's always dreamed of having, and he'll be cuter than all her other crushes even if it's hard for her to imagine!

High school had its ups and downs, now that I'm older I look back on the fun memories with friends and the funny events that always seemed to happen around campus. But I never really wish I could go back to it, because just as I suspected back then, there's so much more out there in the world and I had only experienced a small sliver of what life had to offer. I wish I could give my younger self a big hug, buy her ice cream and reassure her everything will be okay! I think if she met me she'd admire me very much and be amazed by all the things she's accomplished since her Witty days. If you're a high schooler reading this, I hope you can somehow believe your future self would want to do the same for you right now, too. She loves you very much and believes in you more than you'd ever know!

I hope you enjoy reading through my quotes! The early 2010s were definitely a fun time to be a teenager!

Quotes by valerieexrainbowss



in the end we ended up with different people
and we were both happy


*just not together*
it's not like we can speak with ghosts

but if we could, I'd talk to you
I'd ask what you think about how I feel
but feel ashamed immediately after,
as I'd feel it'd be an insult
compared to what you had,
which was actually something real.

I don't know if you'd judge me
but I'd trust that you wouldn't
and that you'd only want what's best
and with that said,
that you'd point me toward the future
and tell me that there are better things ahead
real things

maybe then again I'd feel sorry for asking
because your future already came and went
but maybe you'd just give me a kind smile
and remind me that mine still hasn't
and that I have a lot to look forward to
and that I should make the most of it all
while I still can

it's not like ghosts can watch over us
but if they could, I'd trust that you'd be watching

and if that's to be the case,
I'll make sure that you see something wonderful

and if that's the case,
I wouldn't mind running away
from false hopes
right now
and never,
ever
turning back.

“Maybe when two people
aren't right for each other
it's because fate
was in the mood
for a little self-destruction.”





Things to remember:

* There will always be someone better.
* Boys are often forgetful. Try not to take this too personally.
* Try to love through all the chaos. There will always be chaos.
* Some people are reckless with other people's feelings. Don't be one of those people.
* He's probably not actually looking at you from across the room, but you'll see what you want to see.
* He isn't thinking about you right now.
* That dream you had where he confessed his feelings for you was just that - a dream.
* Everything happens for at least one reason, but often for more than that.
* You deserve to be with someone who legitimately cares about you.
* Whatever is worrying you right now, you'll be laughing about once you're in college - if not before.





(Interpret this how you will.)
 


but I'm not too concerned   

because I know that this won't even matter after a few more weeks. Your life will go on and so will mine. You'll have a new beginning in college. I won't be a part of that, and that's okay. I'll be enjoying my final year of high school, lounging around in my senior sweats and daydreaming about the future as I fill out my apps. You won't be a part of that, and that's okay. But in a way, I guess you'll always be a part of me. Not literally, and not constantly; but you did influence me in more ways than one, and I can definitely say I've learned and grown from you. But I already know how we're going to end. Well, if you can call it an ending, because we never really had anything together anyway, except for maybe a few inside jokes and a summer or two in common. But I'm ready for whenever it is that you end up walking out of my life for good - or at least for a long while. Because I've gone through this before, and I've made it through. Knowing you was fun, even if I only got to know you a little bit. I guess it was an adventure of sorts. But I'm ready for all the adventures to follow, and I'd rather have a ton more to look forward to than to be forever stuck here with you. I want to see the world and experience a lot of things. And meet and get to know a wide variety of people, each with worlds of their own to experience. You're not bad, but wouldn't it be lame if your world was the only one I got to see? And with that in mind... I'll be ready to set you free.



this might have not ended up as I wanted,
but life's too short to sit around forgotten

Understand that some people are willing to kiss people that they don't really love.

She is one of them.

"No use throwing your fishes in a basket with a hole in it."

 

Yeah,

the idea of falling in love with your best friend is cute, but don’t ever feel obligated to do so - even if he really likes you - unless you really, truly, deeply love him like that yourself. You can be his best friend all you want, but if you don’t love him then don’t you dare ever make him think that you do, don’t take advantage of how he feels… let him find someone else instead, someone who could possibly maybe end up loving him just as much as he believes he loves you right now.

Someone like me, perhaps.

Whenever I look at you,
I remember that time passes,
feelings change, and things get better.
You're an ironic source of hope.
