One board, endless possibilities

The day I started college..aka last Wednesday, my sister texted me jokingly asking if I wanted her to take me to lunch and take my picture like she does with her kids for their first day of school.

Once she said it, I knew I had to do it. Anyone close to me knows I have never liked school. High school and a brief stint in college left a sour taste in my mouth and it never appealed to me ever. Now that I’m in it, I’m really enjoying it. I know I’m only in the first week, but I’m liking my History class (and though I loathe my Chemistry class), I actually like learning, studying and doing all things “school”.

Clearly a product of being older and more mature because it even surprised me how much I’ve been enjoying it.

So my sister and I arranged for her to come over for breakfast the next day and make me a ‘first day of school’ sign, and I was excitedly looking forward to it. By the end of the night, things turned south when she texted saying she was feeling really sick. Plans canceled. I was disappointed but the next day, it didn’t stop me from what was already deep in my mind.

I wanted those pictures and the only way to do them, was to do them myself. Now I could have told you my sister came over and took these, but I’m all about the embarrassing honesty of sharing that I set up my tripod and took over 60 pictures of myself in the backyard.

No shame.. Besides, when will I ever have another “1st day of college!?”

Seeing as I had taken so many pictures of myself, I saw a golden opportunity to say even more than originally planned.

I thought I’d leave this one blank to fill it in with whatever you say. What do you think it should say?

Thanks to photoshop elements and the many fonts to choose from, I now have a great memory for my first day back to school.

Pin It Now!

You could get so many miles out of the blanks! Hope you made G a card! That last one looks like it should say "yeah, that was me who passed gas in the aisle you just walked through" or something terribly naughty. :P

Yea for starting college! I love how you're rockin' the signs there in all your fantastic goofiness =D While I can't be of much help with the Chemistry (seeing as I dropped out of it in high school then picked a major that didn't require it) if you need help with history, you know where to find me. Best of luck!
