(reading the youtube comments for this made me want to jump off of a building. People were bitching about how the fact that these kids weren’t physics majors at MIT meant that they didn’t know what stress was like and they were just whining. The irony is that I bet most of these people were in high school. They’ll see.)

Get rid of your insecurities: whatever it is you feel someone will judge you about, they won’t. Everyone has something they’re insecure about and no one is perfect, so if you’re trying to get rid of five pounds you’re ashamed of, get over yourself, stop being a hungry biotch, and eat some bread.
