Graduation

Hi everyone!

On Tuesday the 17th of November I officially graduated from High School, and it is probably one of the scariest things of my life. Basically, graduating has made me realise how little control I have over my life right now - what am I even supposed to do with myself now?

Graduation, at my school, is quite different to that of American graduations. For starters, we don't get the cool gowns at hats! (We do get those in Uni though) At my school, we did not have to wear our school uniforms and I am sorry for any that had to. It was a chance for us to all dress up just a little and have a fun evening with our family and friends.

Of course, before we left, there was an obligatory photo shoot.

Kiara, me, and Mum. (This photo makes me very happy because I actually look taller than someone - I'm not actually, I was wearing heels)


After that, we headed down to the Civic Center and the fun began. It was a pretty long night, but it was broken up with amazing singing acts, films made by students, and many many speeches. As School Captain, I had to give a speech and I will quite honestly say I was tearing up by the end of it, and I am very proud to say many in the audience were too.

Then, after that came many many more photos and here are a few snapshots:

This is possibly my favourite photo from that night

The Craziest Two Weeks Of My Life

I've been a little M.I.A lately, but I can promise you it has all been for a good reason. The past two weeks have possibly been the craziest two of my whole life. I've just graduated High School and I now have to actually seriously think about my future as an adult. But, before we get to that, I want to share some fun with you all. So, here's what I have been up to:

I had my last day of an actual full-length day at school. Obviously, we had to ditch our spare and get Macca's, so here's a pretty nice shot of the greatest spare crew. 


The very next day I graduated - here's  me with my sister and my Mum.

I then had formal, and I felt like an absolute princess. Here is Alice and I, down at Cotton Tree for photos. 

That night was the formal after party, which I have well and truly decided are not my thing. It was pretty cool though, we had a DJ and bonfire.

The next day was our last morning, and walk out which was an absolute blast. Not forgetting, of course, the trip to Mooloolaba beach! 

Next was Schoolies! I spent a week with my friends on Moreton Island, at Tangalooma and it was one of the most beautiful places and I had a ball all week. 

The day after I got back from Schoolies, I went to Ed Sheeran with my family - he was so so amazing!

So, yes, I have had an insane two weeks and it's a little sad to be going back to work tomorrow morning. This post was just a brief skim over everything and I will be going through each event in more detail in different posts. (Yes, I will explain walk out and schoolies properly)
I'm sorry if this is boring for you, but I need to share with someone!
