"Stay positive."

"Just smile."

"Don't worry."

Do these words sound familiar? 

Well if you attend Sun Hills High School, they probably are, for these are a few phrases from optimist Jacob Perez, SHHS's most popular student that everyone relies on for the best advice. With his charm and charisma, Jacob's antics never fail to impress.

However, one girl happens snag Jacob's attention. With her head down in a different book every day, Jacob notices the distance she keeps from the other students. To him, she's unhappy and of course Jacob doesn't let that slip past him. However, what Jacob fails to realize is that, to her, it's absolute paradise being by herself and away from the drama.

Can Jacob, just maybe, get a smile out of her?

People ask me this question every day at school I swear 😒. Maybe because people annoy me, guys are jerks, and high school is full of wannabes

Sometimes people that are always optimists get on my nerves. I'm not a moody person, but Jakob maybe isn't a realist and I hate that at people
