Okay but seriously, the most important thing you need to know in High School is that IT'S ONLY A FEW YEARS OF YOUR LIFE. Yes, when you're in the middle of it it seems like it's the most important thing in the world, but it isn't. Not in the grand scheme of things. The people that walk around acting like they're royalty are in for a rude awakening when they realizes that the rest of the world and the rest of their lives isn't high school.
Do what you love. Do what makes you happy. Feed your passions and don't give a damn about what other people have to say about it. Because there's a good chance that the things you love are the things you will find a way to do for the rest of your life and hopefully end up being your job. The cheerleaders that make that their entire world won't be doing that as a career. The bitchy girls who love to put people who are different down aren't going to be doing that as a career. The things that are important in high school aren't important in the real world. But the things that are important IN YOUR WORLD will be a huge part of your life forever if you protect and nurture them through these few rough years.
