It may not seem important now, but challenge yourself to do well, and take more classes out of your comfort zone. You never know where you may end up in life. By taking a variety of classes, and achieving good grades, it can open up many possibilities for you later on. Hard work really does pay off.

Nothing says Easter Sunday brunch like deviled eggs, the popular holiday tradition that involves turning boring, hard-boiled eggs into bite-sized delectables. Slice the eggs in half lengthwise, removing yolks to a medium bowl. Mash the yolks into a fine crumb using a fork. Add mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper and mix well. Evenly disperse heaping teaspoons of the yolk mixture into the egg whites. Sprinkle with paprika and serve.

Mainly, work hard in school. This is your main priority right now because it is the base of so many things in the future. Skipping and not doing your best will only hurt your future self. Also, don’t procrastinate! Finish your work now, because I promise you there will be even more work to do later.

While high school might not be that important to you in a few years, its important now, so take it seriously. Try to make friends with everyone. And most importantly, make sure you’re happy.
