Top 5 game changing moments that happened in high school

As requested by my bestie @anivan
  1. 1.
    Was cast in my first play
    I had lines, had to dance, and learned exactly what I wanted to be involved in for the rest of my life.
  2. 2.
    When I was made VP of Drama Club and Dance Captain of a show
    Power man. Makes me regret my lack of confidence. Makes me regret that I didn't go for President. Makes me regret that I trusted friends to stick with me through hard times—my friendship standards are so much higher now.
  3. 3.
    My English teacher told me to "write a book, get a PhD"
    No one (outside of my family) had ever read and supported my writing before. Whenever I doubt my abilities I think of her editing my short stories and complimenting me—teachers whole BELIEVE can change the world.
  4. 4.
    Getting stood up at prom
    Taught me that I can trust no man, not even ones I'm JUST friends with. Also one of the first times my brothers saw me heartbroken and took care of me, love my boys.
  5. 5.
    I saw Johnny Depp in concert
    He had a reunion concert with his high school band right around the corner from my house, I was front row and he said "thank you, gorgeous" to me. DREAMS REALLY CAN COME TRUE.
  6. 6.
    BONUS: my choreographer told me to get a breast reduction, "or you'll never dance professionally"
    Just fuck you.
