  1. I love this high school bucket list especially as I’m going into my last year of HS. I think an important part of high school overall( which was on your list) is to get out of your comfort zone. I know before high school, I never liked to try anything out of the ordinary but, know I’m more willing to try new activities and experiences!
    This entire list is giving me high school movie feels! What on this have you achieved or want to achieve the most? I really want to write a letter to my future self that I will open at the end of college 😃😊


    1. So happy to hear that!! Yes- part of me wanted to make some thins as cliche as possible! I honestly can’t wait to get my licenses and drive around with my friends! Definitely write that letter! It’ll be such a cool experience. Have a great senior year!💓

  2. This was quite a fun post to read, Meghan! I found some ideas to do with friends once we can meet up. I really hope to see my old teachers from Junior High as I haven’t gotten the chance to yet ever since I went to High School! 😍😍
