Lunch Bunch

Okay, for this week's Lunch Bunch, the question is:

If you could address a graduating high school class, what would you say?

Boy, do I want to go short and sweet or long and boring? Hmmmmm, I'll probably think I'm doing short and sweet, and end up with long and boring...

Its different being general to everyone or even just specifically for boys or girls. If I was just talking to girls, I would say BE NICE TO EACH OTHER, working together women can do amazing things--but put against one another we can be seriously awful.

One thing I have tried to have as a motto is: You will always feel bad about doing something wrong, but you will NEVER be sorry you did what was right.

I think I love this Mother Theresa quote though:

People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.



And I think that about sums it up. :)

What would YOU tell them?

  1. "Half of you are self-centered jackases. 25% of you will grow up to BE self-centered jackasses. Good luck to the rest of you."

    The End. (See how I did that? Short sweet, not boring, and NOT motivational.)

  2. Oh were we supposed to be real Sheryl?! Okay, then I would tell them:

    I HATED HIGH SCHOOL BECAUSE YOU GUYS WERE ALL STUCK UP SNOTS WHO MADE MY LIFE MISERABLE!! *and then I'd give them the finger*

    I feel so much better.

  4. I like what you wrote. I might use the word "Douchebag" a lot, however.

  5. That what you did in high school or who you were in high school means nothing after graduation. And to agree with you ladies, freakin' be nice. You'll feel like the biggest biz when you graduate and realize you really don't have many friends because you were too busy belittling them. The End

I'm mysteriously judging whether or not you're going to comment or not...you know you want to.
