The school year is about to end and I still cannot grasp it! What a crazy year! Hectic, abundant with drama, I guess that's High School for ya. So I guess I'm going to dedicate this blog to lessons learned in the ninth grade. Well, of course I made mistakes, everyone does! I regret a bunch of things. Sometimes I look back and read things I've written sometime or another and want to just slap myself! There are sooo many things that I look back on and I'm like c'mon Miranda weren't you smart enough not to say that? Haha. Well anyways, one mistake I wish I wouldn't have made so much is holding grudges. My bible study group is studying the book of James currently, and one of the past lessons just hit me because it deliberately was telling me not to hold grudges, and yet I was. Things happen for a reason, if someone has done something to you or hurt your feelings, don't worry about it! Everything happens for a reason. :) I've also learned to watch my mouth! You gotta watch what you say about others in high school! Because the simplest thing you may say about someone can be distorted by other mouths and that person may hear something you said about them that is totally over exaggerated; but it doesn't matter because you did talk about them so technically it is your fault. And last but not least, I have learned to never ever ever ditch your friends for a guy! Because they always love you and always want the best for you but it's just not right to kick the to the curb for someone of the opposite sex. dumb. lol. I want to give a shout out to my good friend Anna. No matter what, she always wants to see me happy, even though I don't deserve it. I love you anna! This year has been grreat, sure things go wrong but you have to stay strong. Keep reading!
