Today was my high school graduation party & it was nice seeing my school friends, church friends, and family all in one place celebrating my accomplishments and sending me off to college. It's crazy thinking that I'm leaving for college in about 5 days. THIS FRIDAY. It seems like just yesterday I entered high school just looking for someone to be my friend.
One of my very first friends in high school came to celebrate with me, and I'm so glad I got to see her before we both headed off to college. Now, when you graduate high school, that's when the relative and friends give you loads of money to help you pay for your education cause college education is pretty darn expensive. And I'm extremely thankful for all their help, love and support throughout the years. But this one friend, she didn't give me money...she gave me something that I'll never forget, never misplace, and always love...something too meaningful that I'm just so happy she's my friend.
She gave me a bunch of "College Pick-Me-Up Quotes". The first card says that, and on the back, she wrote, "When You Just Need Some Motivation From Brilliant Books and Authors." After reading through all of them, I felt like crying cause it was absolutely thoughtful and it's something I know I'll be taking with me to college. Here they are, and I hope you find some motivation and inspiration in them too.
