|Jacket - Forever 21, Shirt - New Look, Skirt - H&M|
A few days ago, I graduated from 6th form and it marked the end of seven long years at my school. I didn't cry like I expected to, mostly because it didn't feel like the end (I have to go back for exams and prom anyway). Our goodbyes were more like 'I'll see you at the maths exam!' or 'See you at the pub'. But even though I'll be seeing my friends again, how many times after that will I get to see them? I wonder who will be the ones I'll see get married or the ones I'll never speak to again. Things feel kind of strange and uncertain right now but I'm looking forward at what's to come.
For our last day most people dressed up in their old uniforms. I did have my tie which I wore during school, but I paired my shirt with my favourite pink skirt purely because I wanted to. After our big assembly and the balloon release some friends and I went to Wagamamas to celebrate, and we were also starving by this point. One of my best friends took this photo of me, someone who I met properly on the third day of our first year after we made the mistake of thinking we had to change for P.E., got separated from our class and then got slightly lost. (Caution: about to get cheesy) I remember as we were looking around for our classmates, she said 'Wait!' and I replied 'I'm not leaving you!'. Seven years later, she's still never getting rid of me.
I think it's going to be the little things like that I'll remember.
