the truth i can't tell

High school felt like a constant competition, from academic work, to social groups, to beauty.

You can’t tell people your dreams because then you seem too confident but you have to have some ambition otherwise they will think you are stupid. Never tell your achievments, never show off, but don’t be ashamed, simply be quite and stop distracting the boys
