You’re probably wondering what this Loulane Lambert’s List for Life is all about.

Finally!!! You have worked hard and played hard to make it to graduation day. No more bells and lockers. High School will soon be in the past and a new future awaits you. Friends and classmates will be scattering in different directions. It is a fun, exciting, and memorable time. Enjoy it while it lasts! There will be speeches, reminiscing, and lots of parties to attend.
Writing graduation speeches can be excruciating. You can find inspiration at the library. There are books that have sample speeches and other pointers for addressing your peers and all the family that is watching. Once all the speeches, parties, and tears are shed you will have to look forward, but you will always have the memories. It’s time for a fresh start. Looking back one day it won’t seem quite so bad. You might even miss it.
