Time flies... 2 years come and gone!

I cannot believe how quickly time has gone in the last two years.
I'm starting to see posts on how old friends are graduating from my old high school.
It has been two years since I graduated high school this week.
It kind of blows my mind.
Two years ago I was taking the last of my high school finals, practicing walking out onto our high school's football field.
Two years ago I was signing yearbooks for people I would never see again.
In some ways I miss high school. I miss choir, dance, ASB (student government), dances, seminary, dancing in the parking lot, morning bagel runs, Del Taco runs after school, laughing in our cars before school, and a lot more... but in all honesty I am a completely different person now. I never want to be the person I was in high school ever again. While I look back with no regrets, I do urge all of my friends who are now graduating high school to take inventory of who you are and what you have accomplished. Not to rain on your parade, but just because you graduated high school doesn't make you super special.
You have to go into the world and prove what you are worth. I admit I am living in a bubble right now, a big bubble called Rexburg,Idaho. However, the GPA I have now means so much more to me than the GPA I had in high school. Even though both GPAs are really high and actually the same number, the one I am working for now actually means something. It will be the GPA that my first real employers see when they look at my resume.
Just because you are graduating high school doesn't mean it is time to quit, it is time to prove yourself.
Furthermore, respect the time that you have. Two years ago I thought I was going to marry my high school boyfriend.
Well to be honest that did not last. At all. Instead we broke up, moved on, and after two weeks I went on my first date with my husband.
You never know what life is going to throw at you.
Enjoy your last Summer as a kid. Someday you will be paying bills and cooking meals. For some of you that may not happen for another four years, but you never know how fast things are going to happen. Do not get me wrong, marrying my husband was the best reality check I have ever had, in addition the best decision I have EVER made.
I guess the point of this post is... ENJOY YOUR TIME. LOVE EVERY SECOND and DON'T GIVE UP!
Okay, I'll get off my soapbox now. Enjoy graduation to all my little high school friends.
