It’s Just So High School

For the start of my summer vacation, I thought I’d leave you with a little high school graffiti that I saw in a bathroom stall at my mother’s high school. Whether it’s permanently or just for the summer, it’s just a little reminder of why we’re all happy to be out of there.

“She treats me like shit, so why do I still like her? Why am I afraid to speak up?”

“No one likes him, doesn’t he get it?”
response: “His mom probably told him ‘girls tease you because they like you'”

“the waiting game of life’s best play
to grasp the strings of dawn’s new day
we’re dashed of hopes and dreams of time
just sit and wait to make life rhyme
past soon makes sense of time’s quick work
but quick to live and quick to earth”

“‘I love you’ an over-used under-meant sentence.”

“maybe I’m not trying to be different just myself. Ever thought of that?”

“It seems we always miss the old days, no?  ‘I wish I were seven’, ‘I wish I didn’t have to care’. Suggestion: don’t hope for the future, LIVE now, so you won’t have to crave the past”

“Why are people so judgmental?
Calling some
‘ugly’ won’t make you prettier.
Calling someone
‘stupid’ won’t make you smarter.
{It should freaking stop!!}”
