I did it guys!
I graduated from high school yesterday! :')
I had such a GREAT day yesterday
My parents and I arrived to the school.
I instantly saw my boyfriend in the parking lot.
So my parents and I walked up to him.
My mum wanted to take pictures of us. :3 [link]
She took a picture of me with my dad. [link]
Then my dad took a picture of me with her. :3
Well Jeremy and I decided that we should head on over to the Fine Arts building since that's where we had to go.
My parents walked with us.
It wasn't long until Jeremy's dad along with some of his family walked up with us.
Jeremy introduced me to them.
They're so nice.
Once we made it up to the Fine Arts building, we went in while our parents and family members went to the football field to the stadium to get seats.
We had to find our certain seats since everyone had to sit in alphabetical order
Well we had to wait for like an hour since the ceremony didn't start until 6:00.
Everyone was still coming in and trying to find their seats and all that.
They allowed anyone who needed to use the restroom to do so.
One of the teachers started telling us the procedure of how everything was going to be done.
Well it was getting close to time for us to get up and walk outside.
Unfortunately four people did not show up on time.
So they had us wait just a few minutes just to see if any of them would come walking in.
Luckily three of them showed up.
We waited one more minute for the last person.
That person did not show up.
So we all stood up, got in line, and started walking towards the football field.
Oh my gosh, wouldn't you know it...when we all walked outside...it was RAINING!
Okay I LOVE rain! but yesterday was the one time I did NOT want it to rain!
They kept telling us that if it rains, then the graduation ceremony would be moved to the south gymnasium.
The south gym is SO SMALL!...and not to mention it's really HOT in there. T^T
THANKFULLY they did not make us change to the gym!
I mean how could they?
We were already outside, and all of our families were already in their seats.
Plus it wasn't raining that hard anyways. ^_^
We kept walking and stopping every little bit.
I saw my parents standing there.
They waved at me and took some pictures.
After they did that, they quickly went back to their seats. ^_^
The traditional graduation music was being played by the North Side band!
They were good!
When it was my turn to walk across the field, I felt so good....I felt so confident...because I knew this was real! This was really happening.
I made it over to my seat and stood there while everyone else was walking across the field.
Once everyone got to their seats, one of the graduates went up to the podium to say a prayer.
After the prayer was done, we all sat down.
Our seats were so wet.
My gown got wet. :/
Oh well...I didn't let it bother me.
The North Side honor choir sang a song.
They sang, May It Be.
I'm so glad they sang that one! because I love it.
It was awesome!
Once that was over, two of our top graduates gave a speech.
After they both gave their speeches, it was time to walk across the stage.
Now my last name begins with an "R" so it was awhile until I got to go up there to walk across the stage.
Jeremy was sitting in the second row up front, so he got to walk across the stage early. :3
It didn't seem long until the row I was sitting had to get up and walk towards the stage.
Once it was my turn, and Mrs Springfield called my name, I walked up, got my diploma holder ( Yeah we didn't get our actual diplomas right then and there....we only got the holder. We had to get our diplomas after the ceremony )
I had to get the one holder that was wet.
I shook the principals hand, and stood there for a second to get a picture made.
I walked off stage, and headed back to my seat.
Omg I couldn't believe it. :')
Wow!....I finally did it!
Once everyone else got their diploma holders, somebody else walked back up to the podium and said a prayer.
Once that prayer was over with, we got to throw our caps in the air.
Not everyone did it, but I sure did!
Thankfully I caught mine, although it kind of hit the girl that was sitting next to me.
My tassel fell off though and landed on the ground.
I quickly grabbed it and put it back on my cap.
I put my cap back on, and we all had to get up and head to the Fine Arts building to get our diplomas.
Ugh it took forever to get in there. .___.
When I finally got mine, I walked back outside, and I saw Jeremy and his dad, with my parents, and my aunt, cousin, grandmother, and uncle.
I walked up to them and hugged them all.
After that I said, "Okay, time for me to hug my boyfriend now!"...
I hugged him
We stood out there for a bit and just hung out.
I introduced Jeremy to my family. :3
My aunt and cousin went on and headed to their car.
We still stood out there just hanging out and taking pictures.
Jeremy and I have a really good friend named Dakindra, who hung out with us while we were standing around outside.
She wasn't graduating because she's a junior...well technically NOW a senior since all of us seniors just graduated. XD
Right before we decided to walk back to our cars, I heard Jeremy say something to his dad.
His dad handed me something.
It was a card.
It was one of those funny ones :'3
When I opened it...there was $25 sitting inside.
I quickly looked at Jeremy and quickly asked him "Why?" I kept saying "You didn't have to do this really"
He kept telling me to read the inside of the card.
I did, and it was so sweet
I thanked him and and his dad.
We walked back down to the parking lot.
I found out Jeremy and his family were going out to Los Portales, and Jeremy's dad invited us to go with.
My aunt, cousin, grandmother, and uncle came too
Unfortunately when we got there....they didn't have enough tables set up for all of us.
There were only two empty chairs left at the last table....so Jeremy and I went and sat down.
I felt really bad though....
My parents, my aunt, and cousin had to sit in a booth that was sorta close by.
Jeremy's dad kept trying to figure out ways to get them closer to us.
Unfortunately all the other tables were taken. :/
Well one booth that was a lot closer to where we were at opened up....so I looked over at my dad and pointed to the booth and mouthed "Move over here"
Jeremy's dad asked one of the waiters if it was okay for them to move...and he said yeah it's fine....So he got up and told my parents that they could move over there
I had found out that my grandmother and uncle went to the other Los Portales XD;;;;
They made it though to the one we were at.
They ended up sitting in the booth that was behind my aunt and cousin.
When our food arrived, I didn't eat at first....because I kind of figured that Jeremy's family would want to pray before they eat...and sure enough, I was right.
I'm glad I waited.
All I got were two soft tacos...because I wasn't super hungry.
Boy I should have only gotten one taco because I couldn't finish my second one.
My mum took a picture of me and Jeremy while we were sitting at the table
After we all got done, we stood up and kind of just stood there for a minute or two.
We walked outside and stood out there for a bit.
The rest of Jeremy's family introduced themselves to me. Plus some of them walked up and hugged me and saying "It was nice to meet you."
We decided to head back home and get ready to go to Project Graduation.
It was only like 9:00....and we had to be there before Midnight.
Jeremy and his dad said that they would pick me up.
So they came a little after 10:30.
We headed to the YMCA since that's where our Project Graduation was being held at.
Not a whole lot of people came, but there were quite a few.
They actually had a bounce house!
It was fun jumping inside it XD I felt like a kid again.
We mainly just sat on the bleachers and just talked.
We went upstairs to get something to drink and something to eat.
Unfortunately the food was all cold....which was weird.
I ate few Chick-Fil-A chicken nuggets.
Surprisingly they were actually good cold.
A few hours later I got so thirsty again, so I walked upstairs to get a bottle of water....and wouldn't you know it....they were all out of water. x______X
I did not want any soda at all....
I just wanted water.
Plus the soda they got us were the off brand kind. :/
Well later on, we ended up going back upstairs and I finally got a soda to drink.
I needed something to keep me awake, because I was getting so sleepy.
I ended up cutting a small slice of cake to eat.
I went back and got another small slice.
Yep that woke me up. owo
We went back downstairs to the gym and sat on the bleachers again.
A bunch of people had fallen asleep.
Some on the floor, some in the bounce house.
Jeremy, Jared(a friend of ours) and I sat on the bleachers and just talked about tv shows and stuff.
Jeremy and I were listening to some songs on his phone.
We ended up later on coming up with some really bizarre stories. They were so random haha.
We all had to go downstairs.
They were about to call off our ticket numbers.
They asked whoever had a little winner medallion to come up.
Well I had one, because earlier someone came up to me and said "Hey girl, hold onto this and show it to us towards the end of the night."
I was one out of two or three people who had one.
I won this pretty silver heart bracelet. It's very pretty.
Well they started calling our names to come up to get a prize.
My little prize was a black laundry basket, some hangers, and an envelope that had four tickets to a baseball game.
Okay...so not exactly what I had expected...but it's all good.
Later on they started calling our ticket numbers.
Ugh I was getting restless sitting on the floor.
I was so uncomfortable.
When they called my number, I walked up there and someone handed me a yellow envelope.
Inside was $50 =O
Jeremy got one too, and inside was $40.
Jared got an envelope before we did, and man he hit the jackpot! He got $80!
That was awesome!
Well it was like 5:20 in the morning...and I called my mum to come pick us up.
Lol Jeremy and I were the last ones to leave
My mum and I took him home :3
After we left, my mum asked me if I was hungry....and she asked if I would like to have a chicken biscuit from Chick-Fil-A.
I was like sure!
Oh man though....I was SO TIRED!!!...
All I wanted to do was sleep.
It was raining and the sky was getting lighter and lighter.
The rain was making me even sleepier.
Once I got home, I quickly went to my room and switched to my pajamas.
I made my bed up too.
I ate my chicken biscuit, then took a sleep pill, and got ready for bed.
I was out.
I woke a little after 3:30p.m.
So yeah, yesterday was a wonderful day!
I can't believe graduation is over
Well guess that's it for now Peach Out, Allons-y, Don't Blink, Vote For Saxon, and Eat Fish Custard.
