As you can imagine, I have been anticipating graduation for much too long. Likewise, I have no idea what to say in this post or how many pictures to display so I just picked a few of my favorites.
I graduated on Friday, May 18 but on May 17th I attended the traditional senior dinner. At senior dinner there was a meal (obviously), a slide show of five pictures throughout of lives, a message from the school president, a candle lighting with songs, a prayer with the parents, and overall a fun/sentimental time with family and friends.
I was actually an emotional mess after Senior Dinner and creed to my mom for a little too long, but in the end felt much better. She seems to always know what to say. And my family really helped my graduation day feel special.
My two sisters surprised me with a pinata full of goodies, a “Smores Please” bag, and some sparkling grape juice. Oh and did I mention my certain favorite pink box of goodies is going to show up in my college mailbox in August? It will surly be the highlight of my month. I love Birchbox.
Graduation flew by and before you knew it, I was throwing my hat in the hair and walking out as a 2012 high school graduate.
Our class kept graduation exciting with many practical jokes on teachers/faculty and funny speeches. Overall it was a fun night that I hope to never forget.
Here’s to college and whatever the future may hold!
