First Impressions.

Man, are these things ever hard to shake. It's difficult, especially in High School, to not be afraid of what you think of people. Everyone finds it hard to make new friends, and there are the few who make it look easy, and even fewer still who actually do find it easy.

Do me a favor. Go up to someone that maybe you've heard bad things about. Maybe you kind of know them, but have never really taken the time to understand what makes them tick. Maybe you share a class, maybe you see them around all the time, maybe none of your friends like them.

All that dosen't matter. People need to let go of social image and love a little more. Break out and hang with the smokers for a day, with the preps who hang in the library, with the kid that sits on his own every lunch hour.

You'd be surprised what you find, and who knows, you might just find yourself with more people to smile at.
