A few days ago, Steven Ballamy and the Shanty Boys were both names I didn't know much about. Now, after having gotten to know you a bit, Steve, I can draw a few conclusions: you're a good sport and a great friend. Oh, and you have awesome teeth.

After mentioning you in different conversations to different people the past few days, it's easy to see that you leave a good impression on everyone. And for that, I'm proud of you. You did it! You graduated! And even though 3/5 of the "Shanty Boys" may not be boys anymore, that doesn't mean you can't stay close.

Seeing you guys laugh and cheer each other on brought back so many memories. It may be true that you'll all go on to be different things and you may make new friends, but that doesn't mean you can't come back home. Home being a set of places or a set of people. Some of the most important relationships in my entire life were born and bonded in high school.

So enjoy this summer! Spend time with your friends. Make memories that will last a lifetime. And please always keep that smile on your face!
