This college survival kit would make a great graduation gift or to send someone off to school!
College is right around the corner. My friends will soon be dropping their kids off and it’s made me realize how close we are to the same.
I can’t believe it’s been over 20 years since I graduated with my best friends and got ready for college. I loved loved loved high school and I never wanted it to end. But I was excited for college and being on my own too.
I remember this day like yesterday. We all thought we were so old and mature. Ha! Little did we know…. it was a blast reconnecting with these girls at our reunion. We picked back up right where we left off. I’m so grateful for the experiences I had with them – they were a huge part of shaping who I am today.
When I got to college (Go Cougars!) – I was lucky to meet new friends right away. These girls made college an experience for sure. I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into by leaving my family and being on my own. I thought I was independent. Ummm not really. But I learned a lot and grew a ton in my time there.
