The Sandwich Method is a way to talk to anyone in a way that can help the conversation from being a blame session. It may seem weird at first but try it out, it works!

The Choices Are Yours

For most of your life you have been told what to do, where to go, and what not to do. Now these choices are yours. It can be scary, but also amazing. Try something new, get out of your comfort zone, take healthy risks, talk to that cute person in your class, experience what life has out there for you.
