Tips for School!

So a new year of school has already started, and I have heard about bullies and homework. Lovely ... Well, this blog will hopefully boost your moral and not lower it. I was there once, in the school system and I remember some of those days. Until The Cat's Mother and Big Dog had this wonderful idea to bring us home and school right here in our pj's! This blog will be about quotes from books, songs and movies that really jumped out at me and I wanted to share with you. I was looking at a GL mag and decided from some of their "Notable Quotables" and other places, to do a blog that would be like that.

Freedom is an illusion. It always comes at a price.
Bartimaeus, The Amulet of Samarkand

This is my favorite trilogy and this is how this line mixes into school. Take two girls. One acts unlike herself to be "in", while the other one is being herself, but isn't "in". So one may not be popular, but she has freedom at a price. While the other one is popular, she doesn't have any freedom.

You've got a conscience too, another thing which is rare and easily lost. Guard it.
- Bartimaeus, The Amulet of Samarkand

This time Bartimaeus is in a better mood. Well, if you have failed at number one try not to fail at this one too. If you are popular with no freedom, at least make sure you have kept your conscience. You might not be able to tell right from wrong. You might hurt people or do things you know are wrong.

It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more
to stand up to your friends.
- Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

If your friend tells you to have a cigarette or something you know is wrong, then stand up to them! If they laugh and call you chicken, then maybe, they are not your real friends and you may need to find new ones. Sometimes its about standing up for others, rather than going with the crowd when teasing or bullying others - you are still a bully if you stand by and watch.

Calling somebody else fat won't make you any skinnier. Calling someone stupid doesn't make you any smarter. All you can do in life is try to solve the problem in front of you. - Cady Heron, Mean Girls

If you have failed at every tip so far then please don't fail at this. If you call someone stupid or fat, it really doesn't make you look any better. You need to look at why putting someone else down, makes you think it makes you look better - why so insecure?

There's always gonna be another mountain. I'm always gonna wanna make it move. Ain't about how fast I get there. Ain't about what's waiting on the other side. It's the climb.
Miley Cyrus - "The Climb"

This song is about life and wanting to rush through things or get onto the next thing. But we need to take time, and make sure we get to the top the right way. But it can be a fit for your time at school too. Enjoy your time at school, making the right choices and looking out for people, you never know when you will meet them again. Don't let one mountain get you down, since there always will be more. School may not be for everyone, (a.k.a. me) but there always will be bullies and the mean girls and boys, no matter where you go. Even The Cat's Mother has come across bullies, maybe they will make a movie one day called 'Mean Mom's'.

Why are you trying so hard to fit in when you were born to stand out? - Ian Wallace, What a Girl Wants

When I read this back to The Cat's Mother, this was her favorite quote, she wants to have it printed on things now. I like it because I don't think you should try to be the same, because you want to popular or "fit in". You are born different to be your own person, not someone else's shadow, let your own light shine!

In your life, you'll do things greater then dating the boy on the football team. But I didn't know that at 15. - Taylor Swift, "15"

Life is life, learn from it all. Just because one boy dumps you, don't cry your heart out. You will find someone, someday, but it most likely will not be in High School, so why even rush to date? Your life will be full of greater things.

After middle school come High School and after that comes life. - Angie, Diary of a Wimpy Kid

You may be cool at school, or a jock or a geek, but none of that will count later in life. So what if you were the Queenbee in school, life has a strange way of catching up to that kind of thing.

If you think this is too hard, then here's a little something from Bella Swan.

Hasn't anyone ever told you? Life isn't fair. - Bella Swan, Twilight

    I wish the girls who called me that in High School would have realized that pointing out I was fat, would not have made them thinner. *lol*
