"When life gives you lemons, make orange juice and leave the world wondering how you did it."

We're from longhorns, wildcats, and Johnny Rebs
From Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter
From Tyler's and Miss Me jeans
From cousins in X-Box land and sisters addicted to Littlest Pet Shops
From the iPhone 5 and forgotten locker combinations

We're from long lost best friends
From ever-so-important popularity
And the 'secret' crush
From laughing until we cry
From band vs choir
From Glee and X Factor and American Idol
From (you knew it was coming) One Direction
From suspenders too
From four inches above the knee
From perfect serves (BALL'S UP!)
From being surrounded by your crowd and feeling like a goddess

We're from kisses
and hugs
and throwback thursdays
and waterparks
and selfies
and sleepovers
and chocolate ice cream

We're made from the past
We're changed by the present
We're chasing the future
For fear of falling down into the yesterday that's gone
