The days spent in the beating sun all together is simply indescribable, and with that comes nine things everyone can relate to by the end of the week.

1. You all looked forward the trip the second it was booked

Even months in advance, everyone knew it was going to be a trip of a lifetime. The second the trip was booked, and it became official, everyone started counting down the days and would constantly talk about how excited they were for the week away.


2. You bought way too many bathing suits in the weeks leading up to the trip

Everyone loves rocking their newest swim suits the second they hop off the plane, which is exactly why you felt the need to buy way more suits than one would ever need. Sometime the excitement would get the best of us!

3. You would constantly look up photos of the resort

As the days passed and the trip would slowly get closer and closer, you would always find yourself looking up pictures of your destination and send pictures of it to your group message, so you could share the excitement with your best friends.


4. As you began packing to leave, all your girlfriends would send pictures of the outfits they planned on wearing to make sure everyone liked it

"Is this okay, you think?", "HELP! Do you guys like this?", "Will this make me look tan?". Of course, no outfit choice could be okayed unless you ran it past 20 girls first!


5. All your parents were shocked after seeing the crazy side to you and your best friends

Really nothing can prepare a parent for witnessing a whole friend group in action together, especially on vacation. But hey, kids will be kids! However, they never got too mad, because most of the time the parents were right by your side, having just as much fun!


6. Every morning you would turn to you friend and say "I can't do that again, tonight"

But of course, you did!


7. Tequila is your worst enemy after the trip

Especially if you went to Mexico, even the thought of it brings back horrible, yet fun memories.


8. You always look back at old pictures and videos from the trip

It is always fun go look and reminisce on the trip and think about all amazing laughs you shared together. The posed pictures are always the cutest, however the ones with crazy stories behind them or no explanation are even better.


9. You can all agree it was the best trip ever

You and all your friends would give practically anything to be able to relive that week, or even a day of it. Everyone was simply happy the whole week, with no complaints and not a worry in the world.

1. Uniforms

Plaid. The one thing that every private school-goer knows all too well. It was made into jumpers, skirts, shorts, scouts, hair ties, basically anything you could imagine, the school plaid was made into. You had many different options on what to wear on a normal day, but you always dreaded dress uniform day because of skirts and ballet flats. But it made waking up late for school a whole lot easier.

2. New people were a big deal

New people weren't a big thing. Maybe one or two a year to a grade, but after freshman year no one new really showed up, making the new kid a big deal.

3. You've been to school with most of your class since Kindergarten


Most of your graduating class has been together since Kindergarten, maybe even preschool, if your school has it. They've become part of your family, and you can honestly say you've grown up with your best friends.

4. You've had the same teachers over and over

Having the same teacher two or three years in a row isn't a real surprise. They know what you are capable of and push you to do your best.

5. Everyone knows everybody. Especially everyone's business.

Your graduating class doesn't exceed 150. You know everyone in your grade and most likely everyone in the high school. Because of this, gossip spreads like wildfire. So everyone knows what's going on 10 minutes after it happens.

6. Your hair color was a big deal

If it's not a natural hair color, then forget about it. No dyeing your hair hot pink or blue or you could expect a phone call to your parents saying you have to get rid of it ASAP.

7. Your school isn't like "Gossip Girl"

There is no eating off campus for lunch or casually using your cell phone in class. Teachers are more strict and you can't skip class or just walk right off of campus.

8. Sports are a big deal

Your school is the best of the best at most sports. The teams normally go to the state championships. The rest of the school that doesn't play sports attends the games to cheer on the teams.

9. Boys had to be clean-shaven, and hair had to be cut

If you came to school and your hair was not cut or your beard was not shaved, you were written up and made to go in the bathroom and shave or have the head of discipline cut your hair. Basically, if you know you're getting written up for hair, it's best just to check out and go get a hair cut.

10. Free dress days were like a fashion show

Wearing a school uniform every day can really drive you mad. That free dress day once a month is what you lived for. It was basically a fashion show for everyone, except for those upperclassmen who were over everything and just wore sweat pants.

To My Little Sister, Don't Wish For Time To Move Faster, Soak Up The Stage Of Life You're In

Live in the moment and you will come out having no regrets.

To my best friend,

Time goes by quickly, do not wish it away. Enjoy living in the moment you are in right now because you will never get it back. Stop wishing you were in college already because you have so much to live for right now.

I know all you want to do is get away from home and start over, which is normal because I wanted to do the same thing at your age. But as your older sister, and as someone who has gone through that stage already, I am here to tell you that it is not all rainbows and sunshine 24/7.

With the time you have left in high school, enjoy every second of it because eventually, you will come to miss it.

Graduation is just around the corner for you and it honestly freaks me out how fast time is going. And it only goes faster in college. As kids, all we wanted was to be in high school and be able to drive on our own and once we hit high school, all we want is to be in college. With almost being in college for two years, I can easily say that all I want is to be a kid again. We have been wishing our whole lives away since we can remember. Enjoy today.

I see so much potential in you and I am beyond excited for what the future has in store for you.

Many times, you have been the one to give me advice even though I'm the older sister and this shows how caring and loving you are. Life is going to treat you so well and it already has.

There is one piece of advice I must give to you though. Make sure to thank mom and dad and tell them you love them as often as possible. I know they can get on your nerves and may make you angry at times, but they have given us the best life. You will learn in college just how much they love us and how much they have given up just to make us happy.

You have a good head on your shoulders and I know life is going to turn out to be exactly what you wanted. Just don't wish it all away. Some of my favorite times were when I was a senior in high school.

I'm always looking out for you so don't ever think you are alone in this crazy world. Remember, I am just one phone call away.

I love you so much sis, you got this.
