442: GRADUATION WEEK (SEPTEMBER 14 TO SEPTEMBER 22)
At first I was going to dedicate a separate post to each day, but I don’t have time for that so it will be summarised very quickly, but also I will come back to edit this continually!
Thursday September 14: PJ + Muck Up Day
I was still feeling depressed and in a shitty mood. I woke up super late and only managed to get to school half-way through lunchtime; at that point, my friends had already taken a lot of photos without me, and the FOMO rose in me like no other fear I’ve felt (except the fear of spiders, but that is very different). I came to school, went around the school videoing/taking photos of the pranks our grade set up, found my friends and we took photos! Yay! But I have yet to combat my double chin problem…eurgh HSC weight gain :sob:
Lucky I had a free period, so we went book/gift hunting for friends/teachers and had some frozen yoghurt with Shayla and Amara! ❤ woo shout out to them on my blog 🙂 oh my godddd the frozen yoghurt was way too sweet, like it was all sugar and no chocolate oh my god I’m really upset 😦 oh well, it’s an experience in itself. Then I went back to school and went to Latin class for the first time in a long time…I skipped a lot of lessons due to personal issues…but didn’t really listen for majority of it, we were just doing commentary on the set texts. 🙂
Did I go tutoring afterwards ?? I think so, and I probably did. Yay Chemistry which I’m only doing less than average in, but that’s okay.
Oh yes, my best guy friend from Year 10 re-appeared in my life and we’ve been chatting for a while. He was going to lend me his uniform for boys’ uniform day and I was supposed to collect it from him at lunchtime but I slept in…and really wanted photos with my friends…hehehe
Friday September 15: NSGB Senior Netball Challenge
Mood was lifting. I saw my once best guy friend wearing our girls’ uniform and I was traumatised. Hah, not super traumatised but wow haha guy in girl uniform! And the boys came over in their girls’ uniform and played netball with our girls’ team….and won 😦 oh sad days. I nearly lost my voice cheering/screaming. I really needed that; I think I had a lot of pent-up energy from the whole year saved up in my overflowing soul. I’ll just call him OBGF; anyway I went over to the other side of the quad and OBGF gave me his uniform set but not before wanting a hug, which I gave him. Little did I know he would ask for at least seventeen more hugs on Monday and Tuesday of the following week…
Mood really did lift a lot. 🙂 Especially with English lesson, which was actually a party and our teacher gave us each a rose and a wonderful party (and Kahoot!) ❤ I will miss my English teacher so much. Many photos taken, many memories made.
Monday September 18: Boys’ Uniform Day + Infiltrating the Boys’ School
Ohhh boy it was great. Lots of photos! I went down to the boys’ school with a few friends wearing the boys’ uniform and walked around pretending to be one of them. A few of the junior boys asked me if I was a guy or a girl. I’m crying, after I saw some of the photos I was in I would’ve figured my chest and voice would have given me away, but I guess not…or boys are just dense 🙂 hahhaha cue photos with good guy friends and OBGF asking for eleven hugs…and being busted twice by the boys’ school’s teachers for being disruptive/being on their school grounds in the first place! Oh man, so worth it. Usually, I’m a stickler for the rules but it has been my dream since Year 7 to be a boy at the boys’ school, and I was for a few hours. So worth it. But then I had to return the uniform and caught the train with OBGF. Eurgh OBGF is such a weird name. Let’s just call him Bumblebee (he really likes Transformers and we both developed a sentimental connection with Bumblebee the yellow Transformer). This sounds incredibly naive and stupid, but I have a feeling Bumblebee still has feelings for me, even if he might not explicitly say. But he is friends with my friend and they seem pretty close, but I’m withholding judgement and comment; it’s not my place to comment on their friendship 🙂
Tuesday September 19: Junior Uniform Day
Woohoo! I woke up a tad late and was frantically looking for my old
potato sack summer junior uniform. I caught a bus to a stop near school and got off to buy flowers for my guy friends. Came to school, we were in a meet period but doing fun things. Spent an hour with my friends, almost crying, watching a video compilation of all our silly moments in our respective friendship groups. Then my friends and I walked down to the boys’ school, waited for the graduation ceremony to conclude before they piled out and I gave the flowers to my friends! Yay! Took a lot of photos, shared a few words, saw my ex but said nothing, gave Bumblebee more hugs because he wanted more hugs (again wow) and then went back to school to salvage the last five minutes of my last Chemistry lesson ever (actually was just a party and they were watching Moana ❤ ) took another group photo with them and then spent half of lunchtime in the gym watching and listening to the rest of the sister speeches (almost tearing up) and then went to take photos again with my friends in our junior uniforms. Decided to ditch my maths class for my friends’ maths class and sat reading our yearbook, took a photo with my mentoring group, and then we had Literary Luncheon in period 5! That was interesting, just a lot of memes about the texts we studied, honestly. Then food, then gift giving, MORE PHOTOS, and then afterwards the last school bus ride home/to tutoring with my 649 afternoon school bus friends forever. Even though the bus driver took three pointless detours lel THE BUS NUMBER WAS 1522 I WON’T FORGET I LOVE YOU GIRLS
Having an existential crisis about how close everything is and how it’ll all be over soon. The end of my high school chapter, the beginning of young adolescence chapter. God. 2.03 am. In the jumble of mixed feelings, academic pressure, worries for the future, I feel an odd sense of calm, realising that even though it’s about to come to an end, we’re not really there yet, so we need more photos with everyone and make more memories before it’s truly over. And who is to say that it’s over over ? Because we’ve still got our group chat, we’re meeting on Friday for karaoke, we will be back for our last high school exams ever, we will be back for whatever reason, and then there is the 10-year reunion. Man. I fucking love you class of 2017.
