1. Its allowed to say no ... to all sorts of things.
2. You don't HAVE to do what your friends do.
3. Its ok to be different - in fact its fantastic.
4. My view WILL change on things.
5. Stand up for the under dog more.
6. Looks DO NOT matter.
7. You get what you work hard for. You get nowt for owt.
