So, you may have already heard about the It Gets Better Project which is aimed towards LBGT youth who might be considering hurting themselves in the wake of the recent suicides across the nation. Basically, there's a ton of YouTube videos posted from both gay and straight people encouraging these kids that it DOES get better, that high school is NOT the prime of your life as some have said, and that the bullying and hate and despair they're feeling isn't something that they're always going to have to deal with and that they aren't alone in feeling the way they do, and that there is support.

I felt inspired by this movement, as well as by my recent watching of the series Freaks & Geeks for the first time, to make a mix about how you might get picked on and things might not be easy growing up, but that doesn't mean you're not going to grow up to have an awesome life and be way cooler than those kids who are talking smack about you now.
