5 risks worth taking
Telling your crush you like him
Come on, aren’t you tired of not knowing…and seeing him flirt with other femmes? If the answer is sorry, no thanks, at least you can move on to another beau.
Seeing if Teach will give ya extra credit
Worst that happens is she says no—and then you can always ask for an after school study sesh, or a tutor suggestion. She’ll appreciate your initiative to give your grades a boost.
Asking Mom and Dad for a favor
No, nothing outrageous (“Mom, can I puh-lease have that $300 purse?”). Try, “Mom, Casey and I really want to see Hunger Games at midnight. May I break curfew just this once?”
Trying out for a new sport (or joining a new club)
Who cares if your buds couldn’t care less about your school’s new quidditch team? If you’re a Potterhead (or simply itching to shake up your sched), give it (or anything else) a shot.
