10 things all high school grads will hear at their graduation party

By Jennifer Jussel

High school grads are finally enjoying their summer, liberated from the bonds of high school life! College is just around the corner. But first you have to get through those "please, just stop!" things every high school graduate hears over and over again.

1.  You were such a cute baby! What happened? 


2.  One of your family members keeps insisting that your major is "washed up" and "not real." But you’ll figure it out after a year or two of paying for those fake classes!

3.  Come back and visit, we’ll miss you so much!

4.  You totally don’t know that relative, but they just gave you like, $50, so ...

I can’t answer you, I’m stuffing mini-quiches into my mouth!

9.  My roommate’s name is so-and-so and our color scheme is pink and black and we’ve already got our whole lives figured out all the way to the apartment we’re leasing together next year, how about you?

WHAT?! I don’t even have a roommate yet! Are we expected to collaborate on the room? Is she gonna be cool with all of my posters? What about my plant?

10.  You are gonna have so much fun in college. College is awesome!
