Last night I watched my "cousin" Erica graduate from High School. All I kept thinking, was that it felt like just yesterday I was in her shoes.
I'm so excited for her. She has a world of opportunities before her, and I'll be anxious to see what this next chapter brings. After my own college experiences, I have some "wisdom" to pass on to my oh-so-grown-up-baby-cousin...
- It's all about the girls - sounds weird, but I'm serious. I have no doubt that the friends you make in college, will be the ones you have for the rest of your life. Find good friends (the nice girls) and cherish them. Be silly, stay up late, and have sleepovers with everyone piled in your tiny dorm room. "Girl time" after graduation will be few and far between.
- Go to class - Not to sound like a parent, but it's the easiest way to make a good grade. If you go, the teacher likes you = good grade. Don't go, he doesn't even know you = bad grade. Easy as that. Plus, you never know who you'll meet!
- Date lots of boys - (sorry if I get you in trouble for saying this, I know you have a bf, and I really like him I swear). Again, sounds weird, but I'm serious. The more guys you date, the better idea you'll have about the kind of person who's right for you. I dated some SERIOUS losers, but I don't regret it because it helped me learn what I don't want.
- Find out what you love - Now is the time. You can honestly do WHATEVER you want, so figure out what is it that you love, and do just that.
love you lots, and "geaux tigers"!
