Note: this is from me (Dai). :)
Hi! As most of you know I am graduating from Dunwoody High School in a few weeks. I am so glad to be out of there and on to a new adventure, COLLEGE! I am very excited! Although I do not want to leave my beautiful mother (she made me write that), I will be moving to Chicago in the Fall to attend The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. It is a really cool school so I think it is a good fit for me. I will be majoring in Fine Arts. Although I know how I would like to use my degree, I plan on exploring other avenues while I am there before settling on one thing. My mom wants me to take Fashion Merchandising as an elective since it is offered so that I can start my own painted fashion line, but that is a no. Sorry mom.
My graduation is May 29th at the World Congress Center at 1pm. It seems like a pretty big place so you are welcome to come. But I won't be doing anything special on the program. Oh I received my Honors cords to wear with my gown, so there's that.
Although I did receive a scholarship, there are lots of other fees as well as a very fancy dorm that is not covered. Because of this I have decided to forego the customary graduation party so I can start saving. Sooooo if you had plan on coming and you were going to bring me a gift, can you please just make a gift of $5. I mean you can give more, but $5 would be great.
Also, I will still be painting throughout the summer, so if you want a painting just let me know. I have gotten so much support so far and I really want to thank you. With each painting I have gotten better and that really means a lot to me.
Well that's that. My mom wanted me to end with a quote but I really can't think of one. Again, sorry mom.
Oh wait. My birthday is in a few days and I am going to Chicago to visit my school!!!!!!!! THANKS MOM!
