High School Graduation 2011
The year was 2011. (Okay, so it was one year ago… But it sounds better this way) 1st of June. And it was my High School Graduation. Looking back at the pictures I can feel all of those emotions rushing through me again. It was truly one of the best moments of my entire life. But also one of the saddest.
I remember that last final moment in my class room, when the teachers were shearing their best memories of us, comparing us to wine (Elin, haha! “I would like to compare you to something I love. Wine. Like wine, you’ve gotten better with time”), handing out roses and our diplomas, toasting to our future. There was so much happiness, so much joy, so much love. The end was near. We were close to the finish line of our High School years.
We laughed, we cried, we screamed, we sang the student song. There was just us seniors and our proud teachers in the school. Our voices echoed through the empty space. The rest of the world was outside, waiting for us to break free and run out to seize the day, save the world. And then we (the seniors) ran. We ran out through the school entrance (which now had become our exit), knowing that it was all over, knowing that there was no turning back, just moving forward. So we ran out in the sunlight like victors of the three year battle, embraced by our hometown, supported by our strong legs and independent minds.
“This is it!” I thought to myself before running out.
My sine! "Where did the bite go?" I was quite a little party girl as a kid, haha!
I was lucky to have my sister's fiance to hold the sine. Otherwise I would have been lost. Some of us don't find our relatives until way after. It's like a jungle when students run out, haha!
Ready, set, GO!
"WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU?!?!?!"
Haha, I can't believe that I'm actually showing you guys these pictures. Haha, look at me! Tears of joy and chock!
"I can't believe it's over! I can't... stop... laughing... crying... WHAT's HAPPENING TO ME?!"
"Are you okay, Begonia? C'mon! HOW ARE YOU FEELING?" - My big brother
Hahahaha, I couldn't speak or stop laughing and crying so I just did the thumbs up!
It was time to pop a bottle of Champagne!
Hahahaha, and sister poured it all over my face! Thanks honey!
Walk of victory - Samba walk!
Time for the flatbed party!
