I remember as I was graduating high school I tried to do everything I could with my friends before they left. These are some ideas of pictures that will make a great Instagram post. I hope you a try a few of these and love taking them as much as I did.

1. Just a "crafty" post

Before me and my friends left we all decorated a letter to hang in our dorm. It was so fun and we all kept ours. We spent the whole time laughing and joking around and I believe it is definitely portrayed through this picture. There are many things you can DIY for your room and I find it so cool when I see people making their own decorations. This shot is one of the better ones we have taken and could be easily be replicated.

2. One last pic by your high school

My dad once told me how surprised he was to find that he never took any photos inside or outside his high school. He was disappointed with himself and told me to take at least one by my high school before we left the day of my graduation. I suggest taking a trip before you leave and take a group photo at your high school because that could have been where you met some of your lifelong friends.

3. Last hurrah at the beach

Oh, we are all going to miss the beach this coming school year. I always see pictures on Instagram of the last beach day with friends and get sad my self that they won't be around for a while. Laugh your worries away and smile for a photo on the beach.

4. Last luau 

I called this one last luau because of the themed gathering we had. But, what I really mean is dress up for any theme and take a fun photo. That day we stopped at iParty and got cups, glow sticks, and leis just to fit in with the theme. These photos are great to look back on and reminisce in the coming school year.

5. Kiss your friend goodbye

I took this photo as the summer was beginning and thought it fit well in the theme of saying farewell to friends. This photo of me and one of my closest friends was a great photo in the trunk of my car. You can easily replicate this and make it your own, and it would look great on your Insta.

6. Last trip to your favorite place

This last trip to a restaurant in West Hartford, Connecticut became one of my favorite places. This photo was great showing all of our food and late night vibe with the darkened background. With my friends smiling faces, we took this photo and ran out because we got caught in the rain. Take a picture at your favorite place with your friends because those are the memories you will remember.

7. Last dinner together

Although this is not a picture of our dinner together I thought this funny picture really represented our friendship as a whole. I had never gotten an ice cream from this face place and really loved visiting it with these girls. The phrase "let your hair down" and feed your friend some ice cream is a great way of saying take some silly pictures too!

8. Throwback photo before we leave

I freaking love this photo because my friends and I look so young. I have had long nights by the fire talking, laughing and begging our friend's sister to come out and snap a picture of us. This photo around sophomore and junior year of high school always makes me smile because we were laughing hysterically that whole night. Post an old picture to reminisce on all the memories from the early days of your friendships.

9. Hugging a sister goodbye

This was the last picture before Ariel had left for Florida and I think it is so cute because we are hugging each other so hard. Although I never posted this I think it would represent a wrap up before college begins. We had so much fun that night and I will remember it for a long time.

10. Wrapping up with your summer work friends

This was my last day at my summer job. My friends always tease me because I I wasn't returning the following. At the time I didn't know but I came to that decision as summer grew closer. I love this photo of the last day of my favorite summer job with all my friends.

Altogether, take a lot of pictures whether you are graduating or not because life is moving quickly and everything is changing just as quick. I hope you use a few of these suggestions or all of them.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
