The note (that we first saw on The Huffington Post) was written by a current sixth grader to an incoming sixth grader, but let’s be honest it easily transcends middle school.
Go ahead and try to give advice to a kid entering sixth grade and you’ll probably find yourself mumbling stuff about doing homework on time, not cheating on tests, being kind to all the kids and paying close attention during math lessons.
One graduating sixth grader, however, really said all there is to know — and much more succinctly:
“As you get older things will seem more lame than before. Nothing will change but you, I promise.”
Which applies to homeworking, tests, friends lessons — and pretty much everything else.
Someone get this kid a job writing fortune cookies. Or running the world. Either way, we need to start listening to him or her, because clearly he or she just gets it.
