    My mom used to tell me a lot of stuff focued on the ideas "what will people think" and about keeping contacts with everybody. O. M. F. G.
    As a result I have a lot of former "friends" I wish I never ever met.
    Strange woman.

    As long as I'm bad with words I follow a rule about being myself. It helps to filter unwanted and bad people from life

    "Take X, Y and Z subjects at our sixth form for your best chance of getting in to uni"

    They didn't do A Level Computing and I wasn't interested in Math so ended up doing some useless BTECs which weren't even enough to get me in to uni, so spent a further two years after finding this out at college for another two years studying what I should have in the first place to get in to uni.

    'Be yourself' would make mine. Not because I've ever received it, but because of how terrible it is. What if 'yourself' is a murderous psychopath?

    It is harmful getting it confiscated :cry:

    I'm not saying I lie all the time but I think telling the truth all the time is stupid, honesty is not always the best policy
    Id just tell the truth and get my parents to deal with it..youre nearly 18 not 10..

    not always..but more times than not.the only time I lie is where its really inappropriate and unnecessary

    otherwise..im dope:P(whatever that means..) acting :cool:

    but yeh communication and honesty will prevail long term

    I got something similar: my English teachers told me to 'write like me' with no explanation. Needless to say, I now have a crushed dream of an A in English as I apparently don't know who I am

    Would never go back near the job centre. Too much hassle and 99% of their stuff are rude.

    Good things come to those who wait.

    What a load of ****e. You've got to go out there and get the things you want in life.
    lol, if that was the case I would have everything! I'm very good at waiting. My problem is that I'm not proactive enough!
