1. I have a comment about peer pressure.
    Here’s something to ponder: Look at your parent’s current friends. How many of them are from high school? Chances are not that many if any at all. The truth is life goes on after high school and you and your classmates go on with your lives. In the big picture, it doesn’t matter what the popular kids think of you, or how many boys you went out with. What does matter is how you conducted yourself. Those nose rings that every cool girl had done in high school sure look stupid on their first job interview. Trying to look “cool” by not being a nerd and deciding not to do your best academically is hurting your chances of getting into your dream college. Picking up smoking because “everybody is doing it” is now an expensive addiction that is taking over your life.
    What I’m trying to say is the things that look cool now aren’t going to look so cool later. Don’t give into peer pressure because it doesn’t matter what your classmates think of you. You know you are making the right decision and ultimately they will look back when they are older and wiser and respect you for it.

  2. Thanks for the good advice VirgiLia! What you said is very true and I agree completely.

  3. I love this column! The advice to Khylie is especially well written and is so mature and practical.

  4. I know that being a christian in a public shcool is really hard but remeber that in the scheme of things it will be worth it. Maintaining a healthy relationship with Christ and doing daily devotions can help alot. Remeber that when you die and meet Jesus face to face will you look back on your high school years and wish that you wittnessed to more people? For all Jesus did for all of you the least you can do it tell people about him! It wont be easy but I know that you can do it!
