1. Time is of the essence. There is never enough time in the world and once it’s up, you can’t get it back. Make the best use of it.

2. Make dumb decisions while you still can. Judgement will come quicker than you know it when you get older and the decisions may haunt you. Be young and dumb.

3. Stress less about school. School isn’t everything and to be honest, careers happen more so off of who you know rather than your qualifications. It’s also okay to fail some tests, so get some sleep.

4. Take sick days even when you aren’t sick. The only difference is that they’re called “me days” and focus more on your mental health.

5. Spend money on things you’ll actually remember. You don’t need the best and most expensive clothes or things because you’re eventually going to grow out of them. Take that money and buy concert tickets and plane tickets; you’ll remember those more than that one pair of shoes from Jeffrey Campbell that wore out after a month.

6. Don’t make high school out to be the worst thing. If you wake up every day wishing you didn’t have to go or see the people there, you’ll make a habit of your attitude. High school can actually be really amazing once you stop being so pessimistic about it.

7. Apply to any and every school that you want to, no matter how ridiculous or far away it is. You will regret the decision of not doing this every single 8am class on Wednesday that you sit through or skip.

8. Get a job early on. Life is expensive and if you don’t want to be in debt forever, this will be your smartest decision. Also, make sure to save it rather than spending it on useless things.

9. Sometimes it’s easier to confide in your dog rather than your best friend. Especially if your best friend is the issue. If you tell someone that has the ability to tell them, they will hear about it somehow.

10. Do things because you want to do them. It’s the kind of thing your mom is trying to tell you when she asks “if you’re best friend jumps off a bridge are you going to too?,” except it’s less mom sounding.

11. To go with that, mom is always right. What she says might be harsh or might seem ludicrous, but I can promise you that she knows what she is talking about. She was young once too, give her the benefit of the doubt.

12. Change your appearance as much as you want to. If one day you want to wear all black and get tattoos and a million piercings, and the next you want to wear pink with a cute little kitty cat on it, do it. Also, semi-permanent hair dye is a thing so you don’t have to fully commit to a colour and hate it in a month.

13. Don’t surround yourself with bad people. Everyone says this and it’s probably annoying to constantly hear, but it will make the world of difference if you just drop them.

14. Do your homework/readings. At the end of the semester when everyone is rushing around trying to finish things, you’ll be at much more ease. It’s also a really easy way to keep your grade up and to be prepared for class discussions.

15. There is a reason some places don’t have cell towers/wifi; go outside. Looking at a picture of a place on your computer or phone isn’t as satisfying as seeing it in person. Shut off your electronics and explore.

16. Print pictures out. Your computer at some point will crash and you will lose everything, no matter how careful you are. It’s also much nicer to look at a book of pictures rather than scrolling through someone’s phone and seeing something you weren’t supposed to see.

17. Pamper yourself. Yes it’s convenient to paint your own nails for prom or to have your mom cut your hair, but you will be more confident when you spend the money on it.

18. Help out whenever you can, but don’t overexert yourself. If you have the time to do it, then do it, even if you don’t want to. The little old lady who you helped carry the groceries for will be so thankful and it will probably make her day.

19. Learn from your mistakes. There’s no point in being sour about the outcome. It happened for a reason, now try and figure it out so it doesn’t happen again.

20. Be a good person. There’s no reason not to be.

Beauty-Tip #9 : HOME MADE BATHS 
Here is an article for you about different sorts of home-made baths that you can make at home. Theses recipes will help you, your skin, your body… just choose the most appropriate one for yourself :) 
Bath with sea saltStir in water 350 gr. of natural sea salt and lay in this “sea” for about 15-20 minutes. This procedure stimulates your metabolism. A whole course (to really straighten your metabolism) consists of 10-12 baths that you take every two days. You skin becomes much smoother and more elastic. The temperature of your “sea” should not exceed 36-37C°. 
Cleopatra BathTake 1 litre of natural cow milk, add 200-300 grams of honey. Stir and pour into your bath. Now you can feel like a Cleopatra, your skin will become very smooth and silky.
Bath with henna and teaIn a 3-litre jar put three tablespoons of black tea and 2 1/3 tablespoons of henna. Pour in boiling water. Infuse for 15 minutes. Strain this mix in order to eliminate the bits. After this, you can pour this brownish-green liquid in your bath. Your bath might be a little dirty afterwards, but it washes away easily with bathroom-detergent. 
Bath with oil and orange oil against celluliteDilute a few drops of orange oil in olive oil and pour it all into the tub. This mixture of oils gradually diminishes cellulite. While bathing, you will feel your skill pinch from time to time and this is good. However, you should stop the process if you feel pain or strong discomfort. 
Bath with bay leavesPour boiling water over 10-12 bay leaves and let in infuse for 20-30 minutes. Add this infusion to your bath. This will show a very calming effect not only on the state of mind, but also on your skin 
Relaxing bath, muscle tension and muscle pain relief8 glasses of water, 1 cup of berries and pins of Juniper, a handful of eucalyptus leaves, 1/2 cup of lavender flowers and leaves, 2 cinnamon sticks, peel of 1 orange. Bring the resulting mixture to boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes. The strain and pour into a warm bath. 
Bath “Mandarin Caprice”5 drops of essential oil of tangerine, 3 drops of lavender oil, 1 drop of pine oil, a handful of fresh tangerine peels, 1/2 tablespoon of jojoba oil (it’s fine if you don’t have any). Add this mixture to your bath. The smell of citrus lifts your spirits, refreshes and relieves fatigue. Tangerine oil is ideal to prevent acne, helps to heal scars and stretch marks 
Body bath and steam bath for face on herbsNormal Skin : chamomile, geranium, lavender, yiang-yiang. Sensitive skin : camomile, lavender, rose, orange blossom, scented violet. Dry Skin : clary sage, sandalwood, marshmallow, rose. Oily Skin : calendula, lemon, basil, juniper and sage. Out of these herbs, you can make an infusion by brewing them in advance and then let infuse for 20-30 minute. Pour the infusion in your bath afterwards. To make a steam bath for the face, you need to pour boiling water over 1/4 cup dry herb mixture, cover your head with a towel and inhale the team of this infusion for 10 min
Bath for soft and silky skinFor the skin to be soft and silky you need to take a shower in the evening and, on a clean and dry body (from feet to neck), rub in olive oil or any other vegetable oil. While rubbing in the oil, start preparing a bath with nice warm water. When your body is oily and your bath is ready, lay there for at least 15-20 minutes, massaging your skin and rubbing in the oil more and more. After the bath, you can wash off the oil with soap and water, but you can also simply use a wet towel. After this bath, it’s better to go straight to bed. Overnight, your skin will absorb the oil that you rubbed in and it will be baby smooth in the morning! 
Starch Bath to smoothen skinTake 0.5 kg of potato starch or a litter of thick oatmeal broth. Mix it with 1 tablespoon of pine extract. After the bath, treat your body with some moisturising cream 
Vinegar bag to smoothen skinSimply add 2-3 cups of apple vinegar to your bath
Bath for dry skinAdd a glass of glycerol into your bath. Soak your body in this bath for 10 minutes maximum. Do not take this bath if you have a sunburn, as well as right after sunbathing!

Vegans, substitute coconut milk for milk baths as coconut milk is fatty and really good for the skin. And this way you can enjoy the benefits of coconut without using coconut oil (for those with oily skin)

"Nothing in the world can take the place of PERSISTENCE. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."
Calvin Coolidge (via motiveweight)
