For The Little Cousin Growing Up Far Too Fast

Go to the party, go to the football games, go to the haunted Halloween trails, paint on your wall, dye your hair pink, just live your life.


It's weird. I've known you since you were a baby, I've watched you learn how to walk, how to talk, how to live. I feel like I blinked and all the sudden you're becoming a teenager. It's scary. To me, you'll always be my little cousin, and there are just a few things I want you to know.

Know that you can always rely on me — if you ever need anything, call me.

I will never judge you or not do something for you. I've made a lot of mistakes, but who hasn't? I never want you to feel like you're alone.

If you need advice or need help with something, just ask me. I can only be in your life as much as you let me. Don't shut me out.

Don't ever feel like something is too embarrassing to talk to me about. You're the baby of the family and always will be in my eyes. I care about you so much. You're growing up so fast, I can't believe it. Everyone always used to tell me to stop and smell the roses, but seriously, I'm telling you to stop and smell the roses. Growing up is fun because you get freedom and to live your own life, but it's also a lot of work and responsibility.

Go to the party, go to the football games, go to the haunted Halloween trails, paint on your wall, dye your hair pink, just live your life.

I want nothing but for you to be happy. You'll soon realize that you can do anything, you have the ability to do whatever your heart desires, the world is yours. Make the most out of your life. Create those bonds and friendships that will last forever. Do good in school, tell your parents you love them, and just appreciate where you are and all that you have and all you've overcome. I love you forever and I can't wait to watch you blossom even more.

You Know You're From Trumbull, CT When...

The best memories are made in this boring, little, Connecticut town.


1. The majority of places you will consider to eat at are in Fairfield or Westport... Colony, Shake Shack, Country Cow, Playa Bowls, BarTaco

2. But if you find yourself too lazy to get on 95 for food, Panchero's is the go-to... never Chipotle. If it is past midnight, the choice always comes down to the McDonalds in Monroe, where you are almost guaranteed to see a group of people you know, or Merritt Canteen.

3. Once you got your license, your Friday night plans consisted of picking up friends, driving up and down Main Street, and, somehow, always finding yourself at the THS parking lot seeing who's car is there because there is nothing better to do.

4. In the Fall, you couldn't wait for Friday so that after school you and half of your grade could walk to Plasko's Farm for ice cream and apple cider donuts... and hope you could get them before the owners would yell at you to leave. (This one only applies to Hillcrest Middle School kids, AKA the inferior middle school in town).

5. You couldn't wait to be a senior so you could officially lead the BLACK HOLE at football games... if you were even willing to go in the cold.

6. You looked forward to the annual Senior Scav, the last week of summer before your senior year where a list of tasks is passed down by the recently graduated class... the official kickoff to senior year.

7. You pass by Country Club Rd. and get flashbacks from the worst Cross Country practices ever. Driving up Daniels Farm Rd. in the Fall and Spring, you are conditioned to yell "hi" out the window to your friends at practice.

8. You knew someone who worked at Gene's gas station... and found yourself spending more time there on the weekends than you would like to admit.

9. You are convinced Melon-heads are real after frequenting Velvet St. to see the abandoned insane asylum with your friends, IF you didn't want to drive all the way up to Fairfield Hills in Newtown.

10. You have had/have been to at least one middle school birthday party at the Trumbull Marriott.

11. You know that the 25mph speed limit on Whitney Ave. is way too slow... and can't help but hit a little air going down the huge hill at the top.

12. The guy at Towne likely knows your name.

13. You never find yourself turning right out of THS... that side of town is irrelevant for those who do not live there.

14. You know to avoid the Merrit Parkway from 4:00-7:00pm at all costs.

15. You know more than you would like to about people you aren't even friends with... in a town so small, things get around very quick.

16. Going shopping really means going to Target, or any store in the mall, for the millionth time that week.

17. The marching band was the best in the state and you would see them practicing, literally, every time you drove by THS.

19. Depending on the side of town you lived, you spent a lot of time at Five Pennies Park or Indian Ledge Park.

20. You would say you couldn't wait to leave, but when you got to college, you find yourself excited to come back to your hometown so you can reminisce on old traditions and make new memories.
