Morgan, my sweet little sister, is turning 18 (omg!) in April & is graduating from high school in May. Then in August she will be going away to college. All this makes me ill. She is my little sweet pea and I love her so much and I just want to put her in a little box somewhere so no stupid frat boy will try to get her drunk.
I’m obviously dealing with all this in a very mature, dignified manner. Jon & I have chosen her big birthday/graduation present and she will get it on her birthday. But I still wanted to give her something at graduation. So I thought I’d give her some advice. And I would write it in a letter. But I started writing and next thing you know there are chapters and a glossary.
Where do you fit in with all this? Well, I want my advice book(let) to be truthful and fun. It’s all the advice I wish someone had given me when I was graduating. Because the stuff they tell you at the graduation ceremony doesn’t really help. Especially when all you want to do is toss your hat in the air and hit the road for the beach. Kids need to know about how to deal with roommates, and frat boys, and how they should never sleep with a professor, no matter how hot he is.
So what do you wish people had told you? Give me your best nugget of wisdom for Morgan and I will pass it all on to her at graduation! Thank you in advance!
