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!

What's the catch this time?
You seem like a nice guy - but, then again, so did all of the others. One guy I used to have a major crush on turned out to be an uncaring jerk. And the others that I've talked to haven't been too great, either. One decided that, although he didn't mind texting every once in a while, he didn't want to hang out with me in person, ever. Two of them turned out to be clingy creeps. Some guy I flirted with one night over a bowl of pretzels was actually trying to cheat on his girlfriend, who he had only been staying with in the first place because she was good in bed. Terrible! Then I met another guy a few weeks later - sat with him for a bit and made some sort of small-talk conversation. He came up to me again on another night and decided to take a selfie with me on his phone to text to a friend of his, saying: "I found that girl I was telling you about! Yes, THAT girl! Look, here's a photo!" Yeah, he was being really attentive, seemed like he was really into me. But when I added him on Facebook I discovered he had flirty pictures with PLENTY of other girls - and when I went to message him over chat, he acted like he didn't even know me. Wow. And I've also spoken with the hottest guy at my school a couple of times, though, then again, we're not close and he's never made any effort to reach out. But, yeah. There's always a catch. It's always been too good to be true. So, even though you seemed kind of friendly, even though we exchanged numbers and a few texts, even though you left me with a hug before saying goodbye - I can't believe that something's actually going to work out between us. Because it never does. Ever. And if you're not going to really make an honest effort for me, I'll never have any reason to think that it will. Yep. I'll find out what your issue is soon enough.

"You're not in love with him.

You're in love with the idea of him.

Because when you don't really know a person, you're able to fill all the unknown spaces of their personality with anything you want. You have the freedom to imagine, and sometimes that is not a freedom at all. Sometimes it's a cage with the walls painted like the sky. This is not freedom. It's not love. And it's not fair for you to do this. It's not fair for him or for you."

I walked into my grandma's room the other night as she was watching Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian on TV. During the part of the episode that I saw while I was in there, the two of them were sitting in posh-looking chairs at a large table covered with a few notepads. Guys would walk up to this table, and the girls would briefly interview them and ask them questions in order to rate their level of interest in the guys. One of the sisters then remarked with something along the line of,

"There is not one guy here that I would even consider going on a date with.
There's not even half a guy here that I would date."

Which, to be honest, is probably the exact same remark I’d make if all of the guys at my school were to line up at a table and have me rate them.
So I can’t exactly blame her.


One night, when I was about five or so, I asked my mom as she helped me dry off after a shower:

"Mommy, when will I lose a tooth?"

I felt as if almost everyone in my kindergarten class had already lost at least one tooth - some had already lost two or three, even. My teacher kept a big chart up on the wall to keep track. Whenever someone lost one, a picture of a smiling tooth was affixed next to their name. My row remained empty. But my mother only told me,

"It will happen when it's supposed to."

Sure enough, I lost my first tooth a few weeks later. Mom took me to the beach that day. We found an interesting-looking rock with little bubbles in it, and when we got home she marked the date on the rock in red Sharpie ink.

A few months later, on another night, I asked:

"Mommy, will you buy me a Game Boy?"

I felt as if almost everyone in my summer camp owned one. A bunch of kids would take theirs out on the playground and play with them together. One boy showed me his Mario game, and it looked like lots of fun. But my mother only told me,

"You'll get a Game Boy eventually. Don't worry."

Sure enough, we went to Target with one of her friends a few weeks later. As I was helping load packages into the car I stumbled upon a Powerpuff Girls game. "Why'd you buy me a game when I don't have anything to play it on," I inquired? "You do now!" she exclaimed as she excitedly pulled out a box with a picture of a hot pink Game Boy on it. For the years to come it remained one of my favorite toys.

Now, at 17, I have a lot of questions about my life.

Where will I go to college? When will I get a boyfriend? What will he be like? When will I get my driver's license? Will I ever get to go on a cruise? Or travel out of the country? When will I get a new iPhone? How come I still haven't gotten my first kiss?

But with each question I remember my mother's words of wisdom, and rest assured that everything that's supposed to happen will happen in its due time.

I guess I'll just have to wait until then.

I don't care about Black Friday.

Now, I love shopping as much as the next girl, but I was never crazy about the idea of getting lost in a crowd filled with people frantically grabbing for superficial objects mere hours after they supposedly stepped back, took a good look at their lives, and gave thanks for all that they have. But I think the other reason I'm a bit apathetic toward holiday shopping this year altogether is because none of the things I want this year are actually things. As far as material stuff goes, I have a ton: the finest electronics, a closet and drawers filled with cute clothes, bags and boxes of makeup, the most ah-dorable bedroom like, evah - I really don't need anything, any things. Rather, instead of asking for another pair of yoga pants, I'm asking for "things" that can't be purchased in any store or off of any website. I want my grandma to get better, and soon. I want better grades. I want the reassurance that I'm going to have a wonderful future. But I'd like to have a little less homework sometimes. I want a free weekend. I wish I could spend more time with my friends. Maybe I'd like a boyfriend that's witty, cute, and willing to support me through all of my high school stress - I don't particurarly need one at this age, but it'd be nice. I want to be able to handle whatever's thrown at me. I want to see a better world. I want a lot of things, but I don't want things. I just want good health and happiness. And love, which, as the Beatles once sang, money can't buy. Yeah, life is expensive, but when you really think about it, it's also priceless. $

Maybe I’m trying to grow up too fast, maybe I should live in the "right now." But I can’t help but dream of being older. Of when I get engaged and have my special day, of moving into our first home, of getting the job I was so nervous about interviewing for, of having kids someday and playing with the little girls hair, of just getting to create my own adventures and life instead of living at high school practically. I know I need high school, and I’m grateful I have it, but I sure can’t wait to get out. To be my own person. To get through school some days, I literally have to tell myself I’m doing this to help provide for my future family someday. This is for them. I just dream of what my life is going to be like and who is going to be in it.

I just can’t wait

not mine - read it on Tumblr, but it basically took the words straight out of my head.

wait, what if
you found out that Witty isn't actually run by a man named Steve
but rather, by your crush
and he reads every quote that you post

every. single. one.
We're distant.

It's just a fact of our lives. I mean look at us, really look at us - you don't even need to look at us - what's "us," anyway? We're just so separated. It wasn't either of our faults - it's just how we are, how we've always been, and how we're fated to be. For starters, we only actually met once. We go to different high schools. We want to go to different colleges, in different states, on opposite ends of the country. We have different goals, different dreams. You have no intention of being friends outside of a digital world; no intention of ever giving "us" a true chance. You never wanted an "us." So we ended up with these weird walls instead. You keep reminding me that I can trust you, but that I can't rely on you. You keep telling me that we don't even truly know each other. You could go on a weeklong vacation and I'd never know unless you posted pictures. I could be on a school trip and you'd never bother to notice my sudden absence. We don't really know. You claim that you could be a total monster and I wouldn't know. And I refuse to believe that you're that bad, because I know you're not - but then again, I'm quite obnoxious and loud, as many so say, and you probably don't know. A chat box, a text message - they can only tell so much. We're so stuck. It's as if we're traveling along a flatline, an infinite track that never actually goes anywhere - it just exists. And I guess that's good in a sense, because it means that we can't ever really fall apart - but that's only because there's nothing actually there to fall apart. And I guess it's also good because it's relatively stable - but that's only because there's nothing there to shake. We're just kind of here, just kind of there. But we're never together. And we never will be. But that... that's just us.
