Madonna's eldest daughter is about to graduate high school — and depending on your age, this reference point might make you feel very old.

Lourdes Leon (Lola for short) is the first of the Material Girl's children to fly the coop (she's about to graduate from LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts), and on Thursday she posted a new blog reflecting upon this huge life transition.

"Happy summer to everybody reading this!" the post begins. "I've been crazy busy lately. I just met with the Material Girl design team. Can't believe I was just starting high school when we launched MG and now I am graduating! These looks will hit Macy's when I am a college freshman."

Lola then explains that she's already nostalgic for her high school years.

"Just to let you know, this is partially going to be an unoriginal blog post about how very happy and slightly saddened I am that my High School years are now coming to an end, and how I reflect upon the past four years and prepare myself for the real world. 

"So many things that have been a part of my everyday routine for the past four years now suddenly aren't and it's weird because so much more lies ahead — yet it feels almost empty to wrap up high school," she continues. "Of course I'll miss the friends that I've made and the family that makes up the drama department, but it's really beautiful to be able to see all of the people I dearly love and care for, people that I grew up with for four years, go on and pursue their passions, whatever they may be, and find their place."

However, unlike many of her peers, Lola's already the creative head of a budding fashion empire, so of course she's going to discuss style!

"Looking back on the past four years of high school means looking back on unfortunate outfits I wore confidently to school (good for me)," she adds.

"Oh how I wish I could go back in time and urge my 14 year old self NOT to wear black rhinestone studded t-shirts with bloody skulls on them, purchased from really 'hip' stores (wtf is hip anyways). I like to reassure myself though, that I had to go through that awkward time of 'trying stuff out' to figure out what I liked wearing best."

Lola also shares her current musical predilections, which includes Tribe, Kaytranada, Gold Fields, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and The WKND. She has good taste. Then again, when you're Madonna's daughter, you're probably not going to list Carly Rae Jepsen and Train as your top musical inspirations.

So where's Lola heading to college? All we know for sure is that mom and daughter visited the University of Michigan last fall (Go Blue!), as Madonna's from Michigan and briefly attended the school at one time. The pop star even told the NFL Network in 2012 before her Super Bowl XLVI halftime performance that she wants her daughter to become a Wolverine. "I keep telling her, Ann Arbor is an awesome place."

It's a safe bet to assume that wherever Lola ends up, within a few years we'll likely be buying her first album.
