So, you said your goodbyes to the high school halls you have run for the past 3 years. You walked out of the school, saying bye to all of the teachers that poured so much time and effort into you each and every day, without even looking back. I remember when you were annoying and my arch-enemy, but now you have become one of my best friends. I’m really not sure at what crazy point that transition happened, but it did. Now you are a God, history, Comedy Central loving political genius, that I can’t wait to see walk across that special stage. But before you go growing up too fast I wanted to share some sisterly advice with you.
- Never let anyone make you feel like you aren’t capable of achieving your dreams. I have always thought that my ambition is a good quality that I have, but the amount of ambition you have blows me out of the water. You are going to be the next President and I can’t wait to be there getting Sprite for you during the whole campaign. No matter what believe in yourself because if you don’t no one else will.
- Pursue God every. single. day. We were raised in the church so I know that this is something that you have heard a thousand times, but you really should take it seriously. In college, and the world, it is so easy to let our focus slip and to get distracted, get plugged into a church college group at the start and stick with it. Make God a priority every single day, and I promise God will bless your life in ways that you could never imagine.
- And most importantly, have fun. Live every single day as if it is a new adventure for you to experience, and you’ll never have another dull moment. Stay positive, things could always be worse, and make memories, I can’t stress that enough. College makes it easy to experience new things, meet new people, and have a great time, but don’t forget that at some point you have to tell Mom and Dad your GPA.
I know that you don’t need me anymore to tell you what to do, but it makes me feel like a good older sibling so just get used to it never going away! Haha just kidding, but on a serious note buddy, I am so happy to see the man that you have decided to become, it was a little rocky there for a while. You are going to love college and Fayetteville! The University of Arkansas better watch out they have two McLains on campus now!!
