  • (upbeat music)

  • - Okay, hey guys it's Brooklyn and Bailey.

  • And today's video is going to be high school advice

  • because a lot of you guys are going into high school.

  • - I know we were talking to a lot of you guys at VidCon

  • and you guys are 13, 14, going into high schoolish age

  • and we thought it'd be a good idea

  • to put up a high school advice video

  • especially school is starting right around the corner.

  • - Ah!

  • - I know, ugh, me too.

  • - Not looking forward to that.

  • - So, let's get on to the advice.

  • - We have decided to talk about three main topics

  • and do you wanna explain what those three topics are?

  • - We have friends, which of course

  • are important in high school.

  • - Style.

  • - Then study.

  • - Those are the three main things.

  • So let's first start with friends.

  • So, in high school, going into high school

  • making friends might seem like a little intimidating

  • or maybe you're going into high school

  • knowing lots of people.

  • So a really important thing to remember

  • is just always to smile.

  • (upbeat music)

  • If you wanna make friends, just speak

  • hi to everyone. - [Brooklyn] Happy, kind,

  • always. - [Bailey] Just like,

  • I remember going, 'cause we moved from Texas.

  • I remember coming into 8th grade.

  • It wasn't necessarily high school,

  • but it was still the same thing, like I remember thinking

  • " I have no friends, what am I gonna do?"

  • and I just remember being like "Hi, hello, hi, hi."

  • - Just happy all the time.

  • - [Bailey] Like probably that really annoying girl

  • that's like "Hey" in the hallway.

  • - [Brooklyn] Every single minute, yeah.

  • - That was totally me, but like in the long run,

  • like being kind to everyone and saying hello

  • totally opens up--

  • - It's really important.

  • - for becoming friends.

  • Like everyone's like "Oh that's the girl that says hi to me.

  • "Like I can totally talk to her" and stuff.

  • - Just find someone that you think you could be friends with

  • and then just invite 'em over a couple times,

  • get a feel for 'em and if they

  • - [Bailey] But sometimes the people that you think--

  • - [Brooklyn] fit in and they don't.

  • I mean, I don't know.

  • - But sometimes the people

  • that you think you could be friends with

  • aren't necessarily the people

  • that you end up being friends with.

  • Be involved.

  • So like go join a club.

  • - Just go to the sports events, because in some places,

  • like in Texas of course, the most popular is

  • - football.

  • - Every Friday there's a football game.

  • - and that's like the social event of the week.

  • - And it's like a social gathering,

  • like even if you don't understand football

  • you go anyways, cause everyone's gonna be there.

  • - One other thing that we have for friends is just

  • don't get too serious like with guys

  • really fast. - [Brooklyn] Relationships.

  • - You know like sometimes it's really fun to just

  • be friends with guys.

  • - You're like freshmen, there's older boys

  • and we're gonna date - [Bailey] Yeah, he's hot.

  • - and kiss.

  • - I'm not saying there aren't cute guys.

  • 'Cause man, there are cute guys.

  • Aw, okay so now we're gonna move on

  • to style.

  • Style for high school.

  • The first thing that we have here

  • is you don't necessarily need to dress up every day.

  • - Yeah, no. - [Bailey] I would just say,

  • like dress up once a week and then you can

  • dress like casual or maybe even like sludgy.

  • - Yeah, we do, we do, like my schedule goes like this,

  • Monday I wear a dress.

  • (upbeat music)

  • And then the rest of the week goes downhill

  • until Friday when I'm in my sludgy clothes.

  • (rap music)

  • Wear your clothes as age appropriate as possible

  • so like, maybe high school's not the best time

  • to be wearing Justice clothes

  • or what are some younger kid clothes?

  • I mean I don't know, like there are some brands

  • that are just younger looking

  • that you might wanna age out of a little bit.

  • - Okay so one other thing we have for style here

  • is to just buy like one school spirit shirt

  • and then just wear it, you know?

  • Just like sport that school spirit.

  • Be like whoo! - [Brooklyn] You don't need

  • 50 different shirts to wear at 50 different games.

  • You know? - [Bailey] Color your face

  • and your hair and anything crazy like that.

  • But just get that one shirt or that one like hat.

  • - So that if there's a school spirit day

  • or something, you look like you have

  • school spirit. - [Brooklyn] You can rock it.

  • And now we're gonna move on to study.

  • Drum roll please. (hands on legs)

  • Very first thing, don't procrastinate.

  • That's like one of my biggest problems.

  • I procrastinate all the time. - [Brooklyn] I'm know I'm bad,

  • but she's probably worse than me.

  • - But procrastination is a totally normal thing.

  • Everybody does it. - [Brooklyn] Yeah,

  • it's an everyone thing.

  • - But with high school, it's like you really have to have

  • those things on time,

  • so I would really suggest not doing that.

  • - Yeah, it gets hard because you have like,

  • well for us at least we have eight periods a day,

  • and then you have this little tiny sliver at night

  • where you can do stuff, so if you procrastinate, you--

  • - High school's hard.

  • - Yeah, it's tough.

  • I know for me personally, I have to keep a schedule,

  • well I should keep a schedule.

  • - [Bailey] Okay, she's like super organized,

  • so she has a schedule.

  • - [Brooklyn] But you need a schedule, because I know

  • personally that I've done three homework papers,

  • and I think I'm totally good, and then I wake up

  • in the morning, and I get to first period,

  • and they're like, "test" and I'm like "Wait, we have a test?

  • "I didn't even know. Oh, my gosh I didn't even study!"

  • Hurry, scan the review like five pages.

  • - And that ties right into our next thing,

  • which is in high school the teachers don't remind you

  • every single day that you have a test

  • coming up at the end of the week.

  • - Teachers will usually say, "You have a test in two weeks,"

  • Or "You have a project in two weeks. Here is your review,

  • and then they won't say anything about

  • for the rest of the two weeks. - Until the day of the test.

  • My favorite advice to give is be friends with your teachers.

  • You don't know how that come --

  • - They're super cool people.

  • Trust me, they want to be your friend

  • as much as you want to be theirs.

  • - And it could come in handy.

  • For instance -- - Our Spanish teacher.

  • - Our Spanish teacher.

  • So we were gone for all of these trips for YouTube.

  • - Traveling for work all the time.

  • - So we were going to ask her for some help

  • and see what we could do to help pick up

  • our grades a little, and she was gonna say no

  • because she thought we had been slipping

  • or we were sick - or not coming at all

  • for no reason -- - And so we finally managed

  • to explain and get things figured out

  • that we were actually working and doing YouTube.

  • And now we're really great friends,

  • and I even got a reward from her at the end of the year.

  • Now we're best buds with my Spanish teacher.

  • - Miss Hampson. I was watching Brooklyn and Bailey's video,

  • and they said to be friends with your teachers.

  • - Oh, really? - So can we be friends?

  • - Why, of course! - Oh, my gosh. Hey!

  • Oh, my gosh. I have something for you.
