First of all, I can’t believe that high school seniors have their own parking spaces. I very rarely got to drive to school, and even then, you just parked wherever you could. Nowadays, some seniors get their own assigned parking spots, and with that privilege comes the opportunity to personalize it.
No, not just your name on the curb. That’s for old fogies like PRINCIPAL or ATHLETIC DIRECTOR. No, these parking spots are true works of art. It’s now a popular thing, it would seem; here’s some Pinspiration for you and check out these works of parking art below:
Good luck getting there on time, Martha!
The only thing that's going to motivate me to wake up for school tomorrow is pulling up in my parking spot 🙏🏽😎 pic.twitter.com/O88chiYyag

It’s nice to see that many seniors aren’t too cool to let their parents help them paint.

Some of these spots are so lovely, it seems a shame to park a car over them!

Seniors put a lot of thought into their spots, and painting them has become an important ritual for many.
Even the Bard made it to a spot.
And we’ve got a “Friends” fan in the house!
And at Lebanon High School in Indiana, it is a very big deal.
The question remaining is: What happens after graduation? Do they scrub it off? Or does the whole thing just get blacktopped for the class of 2018?
