Thank you!! <3

RimiRimi Posts: 2,001Registered Users
I just had to make a thread to thank all of you for being so positive and encouraging over the past several years. I graduated from college this past weekend, and am sitting down to write 'Thank You' notes to family and friends, and there's no way I could forget about my curly family here at NC.com :)

I started this account when I was in high school, and I can't believe that I'm sitting here typing this as a college graduate. I've been so busy with school that I haven't been posting nearly as much as I would like, but I can always count on reading a fun, exciting, or uplifting post or conversation from one of you lovely ladies or gents.

Once again, thank you all for being so wonderful over the years, and for helping to shape me into the confident, coily-haired young woman that I am today!

All my love,

Rimi <3

Special shoutouts to ninja, jeepy, PerriP, CP, rou, TRBL, scrills, eveum, and a slew of others I'm sure I'm forgetting.

    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    every time i see this thread, i wonder how so much time could have passed that our Rimi is all grown-up now!

    :D

    (next thing you know, she'll be posting pics of wedding dresses and asking for our opinion, and then baby names.... eeeeekkkkk!!!)
