15: THE JOURNEY HAS BEEN FUN... | I just wanted to say that I really, really love you. Yeah, we’ve had our ups and downs the past couple of months but I can’t recall a time that I’ve needed saving that you didn’t come to my rescue. I know you’re not ridiculously sentimental or whatever, but you mean the absolute world to me and the majority of my best memories are with you. You are so beautiful Kelsey, on the outside and just as much on the inside. I am so glad that I am privileged enough to have you in my life, and words can’t explain how proud I am to call you my best friend. So yeah, I love you. I love you a lot Kelsey. I know I don’t tell you that enough, and I’m sorry. I am always here for you, and I know that you are always here for me. I can’t wait to watch you and Seth build an amazing, beautiful family together. I am so proud of you, and I can’t wait to meet my future niece. <3 We will never be apart. You are my rock. Best friends means forever! | Kelsey Michelle Smith
17: Victoria Beatson Kirk
18: God, what do I say about you? You are the most amazing person on this planet...or at least on my planet, anyway. I know you don't hear this from me often, but you're a saint. I don't even think I can describe how wonderful you are to me, how you're always there for me, how you never give up on me. I know it's hard to be my friend sometimes, me being how I am. With the moods and the selfishness and the stubbornness. But you've never left me, and I love you for that. I kind of have this habit of driving people away, but you are so persistent and you never give up on me. You resist the urge to punch me in the face every time I say something stupid, or am a rude prick, etc. If I were you, I probably would have scraped out my insides with a fork by now. You are possibly the best thing that has ever happened to me. I can honestly say that about 98% of all of my best memories were spent with you. I absolutely adore you. And although I'm aware that everyone in the world still questions why/how we're friends, we are so lucky we found each other (and didn't beat each other up in the Alley parking lot).
20: God blessed me with a large, amazing family & I love every single one of them...no matter how crazy they may be!
21: My beautiful little girls | I would be nothing without my incredible mother and my wonderful godmother
24: My Chemical Romance in concert: December 8, 2010
25: My Chemical Romance: Gerard Way, Ray Toro, Frank Iero, Mikey Way | My greatest influences, my heroes, the loves of my life
26: These are the men who taught me that it's okay to be myself, and I mean it when I say that they truly saved my life. There is no possible way that any words in the English language will grasp how I feel about them or what they've done for me. Although I have never met the guys, I know in my heart that My Chemical Romance is the SOLE reason that I am alive right now. It's truly an amazing thing. I hope that someday, I'll be able to express my gratitude and somehow thank them for all that they've done for me.
28: "Don't let anyone tell you you're not good enough. You're good enough, you are too good."
29: "Sometimes you have to kind of die inside in order to rise from your own ashes and believe in yourself and love yourself to become a new person."
30: After high school, I plan on working over the summer (and also expecting the birth of my best friend's beautiful baby girl). My next move will be swearing in as a soldier in the United States Army. I plan on getting trained in the medical field and use the skills acquired in the military in the civilian world.
31: My goddaughter, Addilyn Michelle Etter, is due to be born on August 23, 2011.
33: It's been a crazy, beautiful four years, and I'm ready for the next chapter. | Peace, love, unity & respect, | Morgan Elizabeth
