    Rule 1:Life is not fair-get used to it

    Rule 2:The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

    Rule 3:You will NOT make $40,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice president with a car phone until you earn both.

    Rule 4:If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

    Rule 5:Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping--they
    called it opportunity.

    Rule 6:If you mess up, it's not your parent's fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

    Rule 7:Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rainforest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

    Rule 8:Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you the test as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

    Rule 9:Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.

    Rule 10:Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

    Rule 11:Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

    Do you ever just get that feeling where you don't want to talk to anybody? You don’t want to smile, & you don't want to fake being happy.But at the same time, you don't know exactly what is wrong either.there isn't a way to explain it to someone who doesn't already understand.if you could want anything in the world it would be to be alone.people have stopped being comforting..& being alone never least when your alone no one constantly asks you what is wrong& there isn't anyone who wont take 'I don't no' for an answer.You feel the way you do just BECAUSE.You hope the feeling will pass soon & that you will be able to be yourself again,but until then all you can do is wait..

    Life's not about the people who act true to you face. It's about the people who remain true behind your back.

    Never treat some one like they're second best

    Never get less than 8 hours of rest

    Never tell some one that they mean nothing to you

    Never sue some one who doesn't deserve to be sued

    Never look in the past when your futures ahead

    Never check some one's pulse and still mistake them for dead

    Never drink soda when water's nearby

    Never say that you don't care if you die

    Never trust anyone who isn't yourself

    Never push photos to the back of the shelf

    Never believe that you can't measure up

    Never think it's empty when it's a full cup

    Never act selfish just cuz your mother's around

    Never expect to helped when you're on the ground

    And if there is anything you should never do, is pretend you don't like him/her when you love everything they do.

    'There comes a time in life when you have to let go of all the pointless drama & and the people who create it, and surround yourself with people that make you laugh so hard that you completely forget the bad and focus solely on the good. After all, life is too short to be anything but happy.'
