"I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
- Fitzgerald quoted by C. Guerra, excerpt from “wait…”
My very best friend that I have known my entire life just left for the Dominican Republic for the whole summer. She is going through the organization AMIGOS to help out. She is an amazing person that can make anyone laugh in any situation. She is so beautiful, smart (way more than she believes), and caring. She deeply cares for people which is an amazing quality to have. I love her to bits and miss her already and cannot wait for August to roll around. I hope she opens her eyes, ears, and most of all heart to all the people she is going to meet and the experiences she is going to have. I hope she will make the most of the trip and learn so much! But most of all, I hope that she knows that I love her and am always thinking of her... you are my best friend and always will be no matter how far away we are.
