Back-to-school season is in full swing, and that means someone's bound to give you and your kid some advice, especially when you're not asking. Just had a baby? You should think about a 529 plan, stat. Kid starting middle school? Here's a list of 529 books they HAVE to read. Teen starting college? Maybe you need to sit down for this one, Mom.

A recently trending hashtag is bringing some words of wisdom to all the students heading into the new school year. #AdviceforStudentsThisYear is a good read, if not for some pure unfiltered advice in 140 characters or less, then for some laughs as you scroll through memory lane.

"This is such a time in your lives when all these insecurities creep in and you're looking in the mirror like, 'I don't look like all the Kardashians' ... And you think that that's wrong. But it's not. You should just totally look in the mirror and just love yourself, and be like, 'This is the package I come in, and I'm just going to embrace it.'

"And don't try to make your parents proud, because it's impossible," she added. "They don't understand."
