The Great Graduation Race

Including today, i graduate in 23 days. That is only days before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows should be delivered to my doorstep.

Clearly, i have a lot of major things happening in my life.

I remember back in the middle of May when there were only 64 days left until graduation.
That seemed like so long ago.

While i have been tearing off the days till graduation on my paper chain, a few other people have graduated. They include: Tara Griffith, Elizabeth Mallett, Rory Gilmore,and Otto Gustave Umlouf.
(if i have somehow missed an important graduate, please let me know.)
As i have been preparing to enter the big world, i have sought after words of wisdom.
The best
graduation advice so far was found on

Does anybody have any graduation advice for me?

Oh man my first thoughts are to tell you to just hurry up and get it done so you can come HOME!
Advise.....well take lots of pictures, I had my Mom and my grandma taking pictures and we still didn't get very many great ones from the main graduation so have your parents take alot so you get some good ones, also try to take your camera cause you'll probably be in a better spot to see than they will. Hummmm, if you have a small over the shoulder purse that will fit under your gown without looking weird bring something to write with, you get some great advise from the general authorities in regards to your future...I didn't have anything to write with and I wish I had.Anyway I know you'll just love it so keep being excited! It's SO GREAT!

Graduation advice....hmmm...Find balance in your life through self discipline. That probably doesn't make sense...but it's something I'm still trying to figure out. For example, I'm at my parents house right now taking care of my girls along with my sister's 4 kids while she (and husband) are in Finland. It's a little crazy, but before I left I had the thought..Jodie you need to make sure you take time to exercise and read your scriptures every day. If you don't, there is no way you can do this. So...I've been trying to do that, and so far things are going great (It's only day 2 or 3). So..there's some advice! Find balance through self discipline.
