To my parents, my grandparents, my true best friends, my siblings, my boyfriend and others(you know who you are):

Thank you.

Thank you for always being there for me, for never giving up on me, and pushing me to carry on even when I thought I couldn't.

Thank you for all the times you have just let me cry when my heart was broke, consoling me and telling me everything is going to be okay.

Thank you for all the times you have let me cry, even when I didn't know why, I just knew I couldn't stop, but you were there anyway.

Thank you for always believing in me when I didn't even believe in myself.

Thank you for not labeling me as a bad kid when I made bad choices but rather a good kid who just needed to make better decisions.

Thank you for always being someone I could count on, to be there no matter what, for whatever I needed.

Thank you for still wanting to be in my life after getting the know the real me.Thank you for still wanting to be my friend after getting to know how sassy and independent I am.

Thank you for loving me all these years, through all my phases in life.

Thank you for all the laughs, tears, and memories we have made together.

Thank you for all the time that you spent with me when you probably had better things to be doing.

Thank you for always having a roof over my head and food for me to eat.

Thank you for teaching me about life and tough love.

Thank you for not always giving me what I wanted, but rather what I needed.

Thank you for always putting my safety first and making me follow your rules even when I didn't want to at the time.

Thank you for always being down to go on late night food-runs whenever I wanted.

Thank you for teaching me what love is.

Thank you for teaching me selflessness and patience.

I know I beat myself up a lot, and I am a lot to handle, and some of you can only handle me in doses. But I want you guys to know how much it means to me that you're still in my life after all these years and still helping shape me into the person I am.

I wouldn't be where I am without each and every one of you and I thank God every day that he placed you all in my life.

I may not say it often and I really don't say it enough but thank you, from the bottom of my heart for the role that each and every one of you has played in my life. You guys are the real MVP.

Love,

Kayce

Dear Mom,

Do you remember when I was three and we would play together? It was the age of princesses and carpet that was actually lava, and you were the prettiest woman in the whole wide world. Do you remember when I was in high school and the world seemed too big and scary? You would know exactly when to take me on a mother-daughter date and have me laughing about anything and everything, and you were the smartest woman in the whole wide world. Now, I'm buried in homework and deadlines hours away from you and we don't get to talk as much you want, but you're still the prettiest, smartest woman in the whole wide world.

I'm sorry that I don't call you as much as I should, and you know a lot of what goes on in my world via posts and pictures. Our schedules just seem to never line up so we can have the three-hour conversations about everything like I want to. I know we don't agree on absolutely everything, but I cherish every piece of advice you give me, even though it probably seems like I'm hardly listening. I know that sometimes we get on each other's nerves, but thank you for putting up with me for all of these years. Thank you for listening to me cry, complain, question things and go on and on about how everything in college is. I know I don't come home as much as I used to, but I think about you all the time. After all, you're my first friend, and therefore, my best friend.

Thank you for celebrating my successes with me, and not downing me too hard for my failures. Thank you for knowing what mistakes I shouldn't make, but letting me make them anyway because you want me to live my life and be my own person. Thank you for knowing when to ask about the boy I've been talking about, and when to stop without any questions. Thank you for letting me be my crazy, weird, sometimes know-it-all self.

Thank you for sitting back and watching me spread my wings and fly. There is no way I could have known how to grow into the woman I am today if I hadn't watched you while I was growing up so I would know what kind of person I should aspire to be. Thank you for being the first (and the best) role model I ever had. You continue to inspire and amaze me every day with all that you do, and all that you are.

I don't know how I got so lucky to have a person in my life like you, but I thank the Lord every night for blessing me with the smartest, prettiest person to be my best friend, my role model, my confidant, my person and most importantly, my mother.

Love,

Your daughter

The pressure of junior year is the hardest. No matter if you are a junior in high school or if you are a junior in high school, it is usually your most important year of grades, extracurriculars and the 10,000 other things you are doing to be different. However, with the thousands of bad and stressful times there are some fun and relaxing times! Our journey through our junior year in high school has had its own ups and downs, so here is our story!

The Story of High School

In Georgia high schools

All that is done is studying

Students are always sad


The first day

The first day of school

Would rather watch Netflix and Chill

Or even just sleep


Club Fair

The flood of info

People shouting to join their club

All you do is run


Friends

Friends, you lose some

You gain some and that is life

In all this chaos


Stress Breaks

A special moment

We finally get a break

From all the school work.


Community Nights

Placebo Effect

Fake days without homework

So that tests pile up


Homecoming

Dressing up for the fun night

Dancing, screaming, laughing

We all let go


International Night

Full of screaming voices

Talent fills the atmosphere

Dance, Sing, Act, Play, Cheer


Standardized Tests

SAT, ACT, EOC, APs, Finals

The tests never seem to end

Stressing for college


Finals

Students are really sad

What did we do this semester

We all are gonna fail


AP Exams

Advance Placement

Physics, Calculus, Psych, Lang

The future is here


College

The hard times are here

Recommendation letters

SAT, Clubs, ACT, future
