I'm so behind. I'm sorry you guys. I'm just absolutely exhausted right now. I am doing something a little special though. You'll see ;) I didn't get a ton of chords, so don't judge me please. I really liked our Salutatorian's speech though. It was about how our generation has done things for awards and not because we want to do them. One thing that really struck me was "awards should be a result of your efforts, not the reason for them." It was a thoughtful moment for me.
I made this headband myself. It's inspired by Girl with the Flower . She has the most awesome headbands that she sells, but none were all white for my graduation. From left to right it's my sister Caroline, myself, and my cousins John and James.
James shouted "SORORITY SQUAT!" and we took this pose. John didn't quite know what to do since he's recovering from knee surgery. My first silly picture :) That's my special thing. Sorry if it's not so special.
I hung my tassel on my headband after I graduated. I hated that caps. It made my bangs itch.
All my family that came took a picture with me. Except my dad, the photographer. And my boyfriend photo bombs us....
All in all, I don't really feel different. To me, graduating from high school and walking just aren't a big deal. It wasn't a struggle for me to get through it. It was more of a step towards where I really want to be. And where I want to be now is very different from when I started high school, and it may be different again when I finish college. I don't really see why high school is seen as a central point of life still. I think more people are finding who/what they want to be in college. What are your thoughts?
