Ugh. Girls. Young ladies. You need to spend some time in high school drinking screwdrivers and thinking you invented them, making out with boys on park benches whom you have previously met and during the day time, and wearing clothes that look terrible on you but will make for awesome pictures. That is what you need to do.
Here is a reason why I might not be the best at my job: I kind of believe that this is what high school is for, and I think it’s really really really unfair that most of my students will never have the privilege of doing half the dumb shit I did without consequence. Because that stuff is FUN, and unfortunately appreciation for Malibu rum will decline appreciably with age.
