Enjoy the Power and Beauty of Your Youth


Today, Mitch graduates from high school.

I'm having a bit of a hard time with this. He was my first poomonger. I think I'll probably freak out at the ceremony.

I feel like I should have some words of wisdom to pass on to Mitch. I'm not feeling especially wise.

I guess the number one piece of advice I can give you, Mitch, is to tell you to prioritize. Do not procrastinate. This I can tell you, from experience, is important.

It may sound more fun to hang out or play games before you read that next chapter in your textbook. And that's because it is more fun. But you'll regret it tomorrow when you wake up drooling all over your textbook.

Scratch that. The real number one piece of advice I can give you is to believe in yourself. I know that, when you put your whole into something, you will do great things.

I am so proud of you, my little Skeltor boy! I can't wait to see where you go from here!

Wherever that is, I'll always be here for you. Like when you need an awesome quesadilla!

Congratulations, Mitch!
