Tonight was my high school graduation. I told myself I wasn’t going to cry, but I ended up crying at the end. I have wonderful friends, family, and loved ones and I wouldn’t be anything without them all. One of my teachers even told me and a friend that if she had daughters, she would want them to be like us. I cried a lot. Tonight was crazy and wonderful and I loved every minute. Now shout outs to my graduated tumblr buddies:
Callie: My sister who is biologically not but who cares. I love you so much. I cannot imagine my life without you. We’ve been through so much together and you are so incredibly lovely. You are great and wonderful and I wouldn’t be who I am today without you.
Linnea: My moirail. I love you so incredibly much. I’m so happy that we have become as great as friends as we are. You’ve helped me through so much and I can only hope that I will someday be as great as you.
Taylor: Since first grade, you’ve been a light in my life. You never fail to put a smile on my face and I love you more than anything. Your talent for art and your compassion and loyalty towards the ones you love are very admirable qualities that few people posses. I’m proud to be your friend.
Olivia: My darling, I do not think that my band career would have been as great as it was without you. I’ve looked up to you as a musician for a long time and I am so proud of what you’ve accomplished. We’ve had some fantastic times together and I love you very much.
Elizabeth: How do I even begin? Ever since kindergarten, our lives have been connected. We’ve helped each other in so many ways and you’ve become such a strong beautiful lady. You are going to do great things and probably discover something crazy about weather and I’m not going to be surprised!
Sarah: You, kid, are something else. You impress me everyday with something new and I love it! You’ve become a role model to me and I admire you very much. You are strong in your beliefs and never fail to stand up for what you believe in. Go save the world with chemistry or something. :)
Rahat: I don’t even know what to say. Your my eBay sister, my fellow pit mommy, and my best friend. You’ve changed me in so many ways and I would definitely be different without you. I really can’t even express what you mean to me in words, just know that I love you very much.
MaKayla: Shoot girl, I don’t even know. You’ve been there for me more times than I can count. You’ve helped me through many a bad and good time and I can’t thank you enough. You are such a strong woman and you are going to do great things! Don’t ever lose faith in what you believe in!
Devin: Seriously? No. I’m going to miss you so much. I know that I say I hate your shirts but really, they reflect who you are and I love it. You always make me laugh and you are a really fantastic friend. Thank you for helping me be me, and helping me laugh/cry through calculus.
You guys are the greatest. You’ve given me so many happy memories that I’m going to try to keep with me forever. I don’t know what I would do without you and I love you all so very much. Don’t lose sight of your dreams and do not give up.
