I am not going to lie, high school was a battle. I faced several challenges. People always say that high school is so hard. They are not kidding. Life is extremely difficult, but it is not until you live life that you see exactly how hard life can be. Life is like a roller coaster. There are highs and lows, but life is not about the highs and lows; life is about how you choose to ride the roller coaster. Life is what you make it. That does not mean that there will not be rainy days. It means that on those rainy days you can sit inside or you can go splash in the rain puddles. You can’t live life numb; you have to do everything in your power to seize the day. Let me give everyone a piece of advice — don’t be a loser who still lives with their parents at forty. Do something with your life! If you want to be a hobo on the street, you better make sure that you know how to sing or dance because that is going to be your only source of income. Don’t ever consider being a hobo; you will smell like garbage and that will not contribute to yourself or anyone else. The bottom line is, make a difference, but never forget who you are in the process.
