Life is not fair - get used to it.
The Company absolutely do not care about your self-esteem. Of you are waiting ACHIEVEMENTS first.
You will not earn $ 60,000 a year right out of high school. You will not be a vice president with a personal driver, until you earn both.
If you think that the teacher is too severe in relation to you - it's flowers. Wait until you will have a boss.
Frying hamburgers - beneath your dignity? Your grandparents had felt quite differently. For them, fry burgers was an opportunity to catch on in this life.
If you have something not work out, it's not the fault of your parents, so do not whine, learn from their mistakes.
Parents do not always have such a boring, as you now think. Perhaps the constant care of you took them so? They fed you, clothed, always listen to what you're wonderful. So before you criticize their parents' generation, start with yourself.
Maybe your school does not open properly be called a loser and a loser in your school no longer exists losers, but not in life. In some schools no longer possible to stay for the second year, because it gives you a pass exams as many times as necessary to transfer to another class. Life is very different.
Life is not divided into semesters. You will have no summer vacation, and your employer will not help you to find yourself. You have to do it themselves in their spare time.
The TV show is not real life. In real life, do not get the whole day sitting in a cafe and chat with friends.
Rule 11: Polaskovee with botanists. One of them may be your boss after graduation.
