Who Doesn’t Love a Good Mixtape?

Hi all!

Thanks so much for coming to the Perks of Being a Wallflower Lock-In last night! I really loved all of your comments and insights. I hope you all had fun playing High School Confessions Bingo with M&Ms and making hypothetical mixtapes. As promised, I’ve listed all the songs you wanted to share below.  If you still want to submit yours and didn’t get it to me last night, let me know and I’ll update it. Also, if I mangled the name of your favorite band or attributed a song to someone other than the artist you intended, let me know and I can fix it.

In the spirit of last night’s discussion on mental illness, suicide, and the like, I’ve put together a list of resources for you all, including ways to help out friends. Most of these resources are geared toward teens living here in Orange County, but a few are National Programs that I think everyone should be aware of, like the National Suicide Hotline and the Trevor Project. Have suggestions for the list? Let me know, and I’ll add them!

Oh! And for those of you interested in following our Tumblr, check it out here!
