CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2020

May 12, 2020

Late (per usual) but I wouldn’t feel myself ignoring a post like this! Many (everybody) people understand that with the Coronavirus taking over the world, literally, there were hundreds of thousands of students who won’t know the feeling of GRADUATING. You know, the feeling of putting on your trash bag-fit gown + poorly styled cap (I’m just being dramatic, but also… not), gathering with ALL your friends in one place, celebrating the success of putting in 4 years of hard work, reminiscing on some of the best + absolute worst flippin’ moments of your entire life. I remember sitting next to my buddy, Gabby + we (me) were tearing up right before we were about to walk across the maroon + yellow decorated stage to receive our diploma, it was so bittersweet.

A lot of people don’t know this about me but I honestly, whole-heartedly did NOT think I was going to graduate college. I didn’t think I would be able to handle the stress of the assignments, deadlines, being social, making friends, or passing classes. Walking across that stage was SO. MUCH. MORE for me. Easily one of the most proud moments of my life.

So here’s a little cheers from me + my glass of wine to the class of 2020! CONGRATU-FREAKING-LATIONS! You did it!! Also… TURN AROUND, LIFE IS A TRAP. Haha, just kidding but I definitely thought I was “adulting” in college + then I had a big ole’ bag of actual adult responsibilities hit me like a f*@king bus.

My advice to you is this:

  1. IF YOU HAVE A CRAZY DREAM YOU EVER THOUGHT YOU COULDN’T DO BECAUSE OF X,Y,Z JUST FREAKING TRY IT!

  2. GET YOUR SH*T TOGETHER + CLEAN UP YOUR BANK ACCOUNT. FOR. REAL. ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE LIKE ME + CAME OUT OF COLLEGE WITH A CRIPPLING STUDENT LOANS BILL. FOLLOW MY BEST FRIEND + SUPER SUCCESSFUL BESTIE HONEY SAVE THAT MONEY ON INSTAGRAM… THERE, I JUST GAVE YOU A SOLID HEAD START!

  3. KEEP IN TOUCH WITH THOSE WHO SHOWED CONTINUOUS SUPPORT EVEN WHEN YOU WERE DANCING ON THE BAR WASTED + EMBARRASSED THE WHOLE REPUTATION OF THE CREW. THOSE PEOPLE ARE GOOD PEOPLE. WE LIKE THOSE PEOPLE.

  4. F*CK THE PEOPLE WHO ONLY BROUGHT YOU BAD VIBES OR STOPPED SUPPORTING YOU BECAUSE YOU WEREN’T WHAT THEY WANTED YOU TO BE. SIDE NOTE: THIS ONE MIGHT TAKE SOME REMEMBERING + REALIZING, BUT TRUST ME WHEN YOU DO REMEMBER + REALIZE… LET EM GO. PEACE OUT. ONLY POSITIVE VIBES HERE, PLEASE + THANK YOU NEXT!!

  5. IT’S YOUR TIME TO SHINE NOW. TAKE LIFE BY THE LOVE HANDLES + TAKE ER FOR A RIDE! YOU CAN DO IT. IT WILL NOT BE EASY. IT IS ACTUALLY VERY HARD. BUT IF YOU HAVE THOSE PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED GOOD PEOPLE, YOU WILL GET THROUGH IT! YOU CAN DO THIS, I PROMISE!!

LASTLY, THANK YOU TO ALL MY SENIORS, ALTHOUGH I DON’T SHOOT THEM AS OFTEN ANYMORE, YOUR SUPPORT MEANT EVERYTHING TO ME + YOU ARE THE REASON I LOVE WHAT I DO!
