My little sister is currently driving to University of Louisville with my parents to start her freshman year! I am so excited for her; I know she's going to have toooo much fun. But I sure am gonna miss her!
I made her a few gifts for her dorm/new big girl college life. This little guy:
And I made her a little playlist for certain occasions while she's away and might need it most.
"Josie here is a little something for:
1. When you need to study: Expressions, Helen Jane Long
2. When you ace your exams: Can't Hold Us, Macklemore + Ryan Lewis
3. When you are getting ready to go out: Fake ID, Big and Rich
4. When things are good: Good Life, OneRepublic
5. When things are bad: You Are The Best Thing, Ray LaMontagne
6. When you need a vacation: Island In The Sun, Weezer
7. When you need to go work out: The New Workout Plan, Kanye West
8. When you need to dance weird: Tarzan Boy, Baltimora
9. When you want to just hang out: Take A Back Road, Rodney Atkins
10. When something doesn't go the way you plan: You Can't Always Get What You Want, The Rolling Stones
11. When you get your heart broken: Next Girl, The Black Keys
12. When you get a new crush: Give In To Me, Garrett Hedlund + Leighton Meester
13. When you miss Chicago: Chelsea Dagger, The Fratellis

19. When I miss you: All My Loving, Jim Sturgess
20. And when you miss Beth: just turn all the effing music off she doesn't like music."
The last few are inside jokes/stories/family related, and some of them are songs that are specific to Josie's favorites; but you get the gist. I think she liked them..she cried every time I gave her something. Ok, we both cried.
Prouda you, girl! Have so much fun, make so many friends, and try to learn a little while you're at it.
Miss you already!
