A lot of people are graduating right now - my graduation was yesterday - and for it my mum bought me a book filled with my favourite things: cheesy inspirational quotes.
I thought I would fill a post with some of the best for everyone else graduating, or anyone else who is ready to face the world and needs a boost.
Totally off-topic for the blog but hopefully some people will be thankful for it.
