Dear Nano,

It feels like all of my friends are presidents of clubs, captains of sports teams, and on student council; take all honors, AP classes, and SAT prep courses; have a 5.0 GPA and a job; and volunteer. I’m worried that I’m not doing enough and it will hurt my chances when applying to colleges, but I already feel overwhelmed with my current schedule. What should I do?

Sincerely,

Worried Wendy

 

Dear Worried Wendy,

These Pres students exhaust Nano! Who has time to do all that? I hope they realize that a full list of extracurriculars won’t get them into heaven any faster … and heaven is what they should be worried about, not college! I know it’s difficult, but don’t compare yourself to your friends. Everyone has different interests and excels in varying fields, so don’t be too hard on yourself. Instead of dwelling on what your peers are doing, continue to explore your interests because high school is the time to discover what you’re most passionate about! Instead of doing things just to put them on your college applications, find things that interest you so you enjoy them, and I promise you won’t feel so overwhelmed.

Love,

Nano

 

 

 

 

Dear Nano,

I’m a freshman and I know it’s early, but I’m already stressed about Black and White! I don’t have anyone to take right now, so what if I don’t find a date in time and everyone else has one? And I don’t know what kind of dress to wear! Help!

Sincerely,

Freaked-Out Freshman

 

Dear Freaked-Out Freshman,

There’s no need to stress about Black and White! Nano has plenty of experience with school dances, and I can assure you that no one will judge if you don’t have a date. Plenty of people go with their friends instead of dealing with the stress of bringing a date they barely know, and they end up having much more fun! And for your dress, wear what you feel most comfortable and confident in, but of course, watch out for overzealous chaperones who are terrified of your thighs. Even Nano thinks they need to chill! If you’re nervous you can always keep it casual with a simple shift or skater dress.

Love,

Nano

 

 

 

 

Dear Nano,

Three of my friends have birthdays next week and I don’t want to get something generic, but I have no idea what to give them! What are some fun gift ideas?

Sincerely,

Thoughtful Tracy

 

Dear Thoughtful Tracy,

You’re in luck because Nano knows all about giving the best presents! Here are some that are guaranteed to make your friends smile:

Crocs: These classic shoes are making a comeback in Pres fashion and your friends will soon be wearing them every day!
Something for their pet: Other than Jesus of course, there’s nothing Pres girls love more than their animals! Pick up a cute sweater for their dog or a laser pointer for their cat, and they’ll be so grateful.
Succulents: There’s nothing more aesthetically pleasing than some potted succulents! Plus, when your friend forgets to water it because she has too much homework, it won’t die!
Water bottle: For your friend that is always asking for a sip of your water, get them a super cute and stylish water bottle! This is something environmentally friendly that they’ll use every day.
Your friends will be happy with whatever you give them, but Nano’s gift ideas are guaranteed to please! And don’t forget to write a sincere card reminding them how much you appreciate them.

Love,

Nano
