You forget all of it anyway. First, you forget everything you learned-the dates of the Hay-Herran Treaty and Pythagorean Theorem. You especially forget everything you didn’t really learn, but just memorized the night before. You forget the names of all but one or two of your teachers, and eventually you’ll forget those, too. You forget [...]

“It happens to everyone as they grow up.  You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t  see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.” – Nicholas Sparks

"Growing up is never easy. You hold on to things that were. You wonder what's to come. But that night, I think we knew it was time to let go of what had been and look ahead to what would be. Other days, now days, days to come. The thing is, we didn't have to hate each other for getting older. We just had to forgive ourselves for growing up. " - The Wonder Years

Four years ago… We opened our lockers for the first time, looked at our schedules, thought about how great it was to finally be in high school. Four years ago we met our best friend, we went to our first school dance, had a crush on a cute senior. Four years ago, we couldn’t wait [...]

For the In-College or College-Bound

For the In-College or College-Bound Maybe the time has gone, the faces, I recall. But things in this life change very slowly, if they ever change at all….The scary part being that we’ve all been hit with change lately, and it doesn’t seem to have come slowly at all. Do you remember the day you [...]

"You start out life with a clean slate. Then you begin to make your mark. You face decisions, make choices. You keep moving forward. But sooner or later there comes a time where you look back over where you have been...and wonder who you really are." - The Wonder Years

"So the only thing I could think of that unites us all, that we all have in common, is that we all start out in kindergarten thinking we can be anything we want to be. And by the time we get here, we've all lost that feeling. We've all started to believe whatever our friends or our parents have told us about what we can achieve in life and who we can be. And we've forgotten about the possibility we had when we were younger. That's the one thing we all have in common, so that's what the symbol on this mural means: possibility. I painted it because I thought we all could use a little daily reminder of the fact that if you believe in yourself, even when the odds seem stacked against you, anything is possible." - Dawson's Creek

"The most beautiful discovery true friends can make, is that they can grow separately without growing apart."

"There are some things from our high school experiences that we will carry with us for the rest of our lives and some memories that we chose to forget. But when we look back at those experiences, we'll see our friends, the ones who got us through everything, and we'll realize how lucky we are to have them."

"The years go by. The time, it does fly. Every single second is a moment in time that passes oh so quick and it seems like nothing. But when you're looking back . . . well, it amounts to everything." - Catch 22

"I never thought those times would last forever, but now that they're gone, I'm pretty sure we grew up too fast." - The Ataris, "not a worry in the world"

"One day we'll wave 'hello' and wish we'd never waved 'goodbye.'"

"Goodbye yesterday, now it's over and done. Still I hope somewhere deep in your heart, yesterday will live on." - Journey

"As we go our separate ways, I will never forget these days; ALL the good times that we've shared, and all the memories that showed we cared. But now it's time to split apart, and hold these memories in our hearts."

"Put it this way. If i had to do it again, I'd do it knowing that after you graduate no one ever gives a fuck what your GPA was." - the last kiss

"Crazy friends provide for crazy times and what crazy times we've had."

"The best memories come from the best of times, which can only come from the best of friends."

"Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But perhaps it is the end of the beginning..." - Sir Winston Churchill

"Well, let's just say that old habits die hard. And old friends die even harder." - Dawson's Creek

"There are things about your childhood you hold onto, because they were so much a part of you: the places you went, the people you know. " - The Wonder Years
