My emotions are running a bit high right now. It’s weird because I’m not even graduating yet I feel so emotional.
Today was the last day of year 11. I have 15 days before I become a year 12, I claim top spot on our high school food chain and I battle it out for my ATAR to get into university.
This week has been a blur. From Monday to Wednesday, it was a mass of crazy and chaos as we transformed the rather mundane school hall into a wondrous circus themed tent for the year 12 Luncheon, with a theme suitably dubbed the Midnight’s Circus. So much blood, sweat and tears went into the luncheon. We worked from Saturday to Wednesday morning non stop, decorating, prepping, dancing, singing and doing everything in our vested power to make the year 12 luncheon a truly special occasion.
And I must say, we blew the year 12s and teachers away.

The pride I have to be part of such a talented, cohesive, banded, intelligent, amazing cohort who support and love each other is immeasurable.
Sorry for the freakish make up. The top photo is of one of my closest friends and I, half way through getting our makeup and hair done. We look kinda scary. The polaroid on the bottom is of Charmaine and I. Llama and Simba 5eva
But now my feelings have to start coming into control as the knowledge that this time next year, I will be graduated becomes very real. I’ve had the best last day of year 11, which involved my favourite teachers doing the ALS ice bucket challenges, eating tons of food, being with my favourite people and teachers and of course, wasting time watching videos and singing along to our favourite High School Musical songs.
So farewell to another school year. And can I just say, YEAR 12 COME AT ME. MY MIND, BODY AND SOUL ARE READY.
And nothing is more perfect to end a beautiful day then a beautiful sunset:
