A Letter To High School Seniors On Graduation Day

The rest of your life begins today.

Dear High School Senior,

Today's the day you've been waiting for your whole life. You'll wake up a little earlier than usual, brush your teeth and go downstairs for your last breakfast as a high school student. Your mom will look at you with tears running down her cheeks wondering how her baby grew up so quickly. Your friends will be texting your group message non-stop with words of disbelief, wondering where the time went. You guys made it to the day you've been counting down to all year long.

You'll start to reminisce on things like your first pep rally and the dorky outfits you wore freshman year. You'll laugh at things your old teachers did and remember the ones who left to teach somewhere else. You'll wonder how the guys in your grade actually managed to grow up and laugh at how young you all looked when you had just begun. You'll remember all of the football games you attended and consider how strange it will be seeing other people wearing your guy friends' numbers when the Thanksgiving game rolls around. You'll drive by the soccer field and think of all the blood, sweat and tears you gave to it over your high school career.

You'll recall your first real kiss and joke about how upset you were when the first boy broke your heart. It'll feel like yesterday when you walk through those doors for the final time and look around at all of the empty lockers. You'll gather with your classmates together in the same place for the last time and think about how you're all going to be in different places next year. You'll be excited but nervous because in a few hours, life as you know it will change.

So before you sit down to hear the Valedictorian's speech and walk the stage to receive your diploma, make sure you take the time to appreciate the memories you made in those halls. Thank your teachers, even the difficult ones, because when you're sitting down in your first college class, you'll feel grateful for the work they made you do. Thank your parents for supporting you. It's not easy raising a teenager, but they did not give up on you regardless of how brutal puberty was.

Thank your friends. They're the ones that got you through your first heartbreak and made sure that you were going to be okay. They listened to your complaints after a big fight with your mom, even if they thought you were wrong. They forgave you when you were wrong and understood your bad days. They stood up for you when you got yourself in a bad situation. They brought you coffee when you didn't have time to get it yourself. They took you home when you couldn't make it there alone. They celebrated your good news and helped you through the bad. They made you laugh uncontrollably and created memories that you'll hold on to forever. They made you who you are today.

After you receive your diploma and throw your cap in the air, make the most of the time you have left with your high school friends before you all head off to college. You only have a few months before you're sitting in a dorm room surrounded by unfamiliar faces. Work, but don't forget that memories last longer than money. Go to the beach, take lots of pictures, go out on Friday nights and enjoy the days that summer has to give. Trust me, college will be awesome, but you'll never be the same person that you are today.

Sincerely,

Your College Self

Now that school is out for most of yall, you are all feeling that summer loving. I am ready to try some new things. And that includes drinks. I have been searching on the internet and I think I have found some that I am down to try! From down-home classics to ones my clever friends have concocted your taste buds will be sure to thank you. I hope you all try these too!

Disclaimer: Y’all know, but I am going to say it anyways like a good seed: 21 and older to consume alcoholic beverages in the USA.

1. Moscato Margaritas

Wine about it no longer because you can mix a margarita with wine now! Wow, what an invention! So if you are hankering with mixes two of these fabulous types of alcohol look no further! For this recipe, I have found ones for pineapple, mango, and raspberry margaritas! Spice it up with these different flavors.

Ingredients:

Pineapple margarita:

- 1 ½ c frozen pineapple

-2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice

- 2 oz. of silver tequila

- 1 oz. of triple sec

Raspberry Margarita:
- 1 ½ c of frozen raspberries

-2 oz. of freshly squeezed lime juice

- 2 oz of triple sec

Mango Margarita:

-1 1/2 c of frozen mango

- 2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice

- 2 oz. of silver tequila

- 1 oz. triple sec

Directions:

  • Add salt in a small dish. Rim margarita glasses with lime and dip in salt to coat the rim.
  • For the margaritas: For each margarita add frozen fruits, lime juice, tequila, and triple sec and blend until smooth.
  • Pour into glasses. Take the mini Moscato bottles and flip into drink.
  • Enjoy!


2. Dry Ice Cocktail: Summer Edition

Honestly, if you have not seen these on the internet I encourage you to open up another tab and search them up immediately. Very cool! (Pun intended). Dry ice is available at Walmart and groceries stores such as Costco. Plan out when you are going to make this drink with the dry ice because it has a very short shelf-life. This is because it is constantly changing from a solid to a gas. SCIENCE!


Ingredients:

  • Vodka
  • Pink liqueur
  • Lemonade
  • Pomegranate juice (Or any type of juice you prefer)
  • Dry ice

Directions:

Combine liquids then add the dry ice and watch the magic happen! It is completely safe to drink (or else it wouldn’t be on the list, I’m not trying to poison you) the drink with the dry ice in it but do not eat the actual cube please!

4. Rose Gummies

My cute favorite little bears in candy form and a bomb wine! What could be a better summer treat?!

  • Strawberries (diced)
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries

  • Mix sugar and gelatin into wine and stir with a whisk until dissolved.
