A folder for FAFSA information; a folder for colleges to be considered; a check list of questions to ask when visiting colleges; a gift card for photo printing; photo album; JOLT or Mountain Dew; countdown calendar to graduation - can you tell I've been through this twice?
Go to Goodwill find an old mp3 player and ear buds, for boring classes. Sun glasses, for napping in study hall. Add a disappearing ink pen (found in the Fabrics dept) for writing statements you may soon regret. Put them in a box designed to look like the Dummies books and label it " high school survivor kit for dummies" with the graduation year.
Include a pencil... To jot down survival tips from those experienced teachers.
Include an eraser... To erase the stress of peer pressure, or the negative words of others.
Include a "Life Saver" Candy Roll... When no one is around to throw them a rope.
Include a map... So they will always be able to see where they are going.
Include a single packet of coffee grounds... label it "Go-Go Juice".
Include a diary/journal... To keep memories, because from here the ability to remember is iffy at best and/or to record those "Someday this will make a great movie" moments.
Include a daily planner... To plan an awesome future.
Include some gift certificates... "Nutrition in a pinch".
Include some job applications? Lol That's a good one!
Include a teddy bear... and a poem relaying how proud you are of MaMa's little man/lady.
