Little one coming from the girl who skips class like the plague, but more on that later. Well, this little ones off to bed. Dad said, if you want to write in the morning, you best be up bright and early. Mm hmm. Could it be the moment of truth? What's up y'all? So it's here. I just got my decision letter from Southwestern. I'm so nervous. Yeah, I know. I pride myself on being transparent on my channel. But even I don't know if I can handle this. I don't think she can handle this. Alright, I'm opening the email. Wait, should I get my dad? He wants me to sleep right now. Never mind. I want this moment to myself for now. I can tell him tomorrow. You gotta be kidding me. Seriously. Mhm.

Mhm lily. Why are you crying? It's over. Wait, what do you mean? What happened? I was just over there. I told you I was going to my aunt's. No, no goofy as you. I didn't get in. Oh babe, calm down. It is okay as he was and everything. Where's your dad? Okay? You want me to come back your way? All that time I spent on that complicated as common app scholarship applications. Always planning for our future. We're fucking nothing. Fuck this. I guess I'll just be a bimbo head blogger for the rest of my life. Now. You of all people know if you wanted to, you could just flogging thing for real and it wouldn't make you a bimbo now. It wouldn't be my favorite thing in the world for you to do. But josh ouch, truth hurts. But hey Liza the real killer. As long as it's making you happy and paid, I'm here for it.

Maybe by the bus before school I guess. Call me back as you talk to your pops. Mhm Yeah. Hit. They don't call her queen of capturing the moment for nothing. Maybe she can save this moment for the archives you think? No, just a typical day in lily's world. Go to class for video editing session or ditch class for slumber today. She chose both. What else is a girl to do? After a night of tears and a morning flood. It was still on for a little Youtube one oh one Leader. Lydia has her sister in classmate Kaylin to thank for her rare appearance in class. If not for her, she would have ditched altogether. Give me until next week please.

How would you know? Oh, so you do watch my channel. I got my acceptance letter yesterday night and figured you may have an update for the graduation presentation. I still don't have an update for you, Deanna and I love it. If you allow me to check in with you instead of hounding me for it. Just following Dunkin's orders or I'll also let Duncan know myself. Thanks. Spotted a yellow hard drive as bright as a check engine light from Lydia's computer as she heads to the door. Babe, are you good? Meet me in the parking lot. Look, I just talked to Kaylin. I'll come up there if I have to girl. Where are you? Just get out of school now. Now you know, Lydia has the group chat on DND also known as do not disturb while her phone silently buzzes with warnings. The c student heads for the school doors.
