Class of 2013

Dear Class of 2013

I do not know all of you. To some, I did not know you at all, apart from a face and a name. And now, at the end of it, I’m sorry  that I was too shy or didn’t put in the effort to get to know more of you. But during graduation week, honestly, I felt like that all melted away and I’m really thankful to all of you for making my last week at our school so wonderful! 🙂

Whether it be jigging class dressed as a transvestite or attempting to pretend nonchalance while holding your breath in your junior uniform, when we were together a grade, it made it all the more fun, and all the more memorable 😀
You made water fighting the most awesome-sauce pastime in existence and honestly, because of you all, graduation was brilliant and post-grad even better 😀

It’s surreal feeling, knowing we as a grade, will never fully be together again, and I feel a little weird about it. As much as I’m not going to miss our puke-ish uniforms (girls you know what I’m saying!) or the bells or the rules, I’m going to miss us. Our grade, the grade that was so vibrant, so crazy and so loved 🙂
The reputation of our grade was just… nuts. Actually. I wish I could use bette words but I really can’t lie when that was it 😛

Wishing For Spring

We are finally in our last month of winter. So long tall naked trees all wrinkled and gnarly. Goodbye mittens, beanies and oversized furry jumpers. Au revoir warm pancakes and French toast in the morning. Actually, I will be generous. The last ones can stay 😉

I am feeling Springy. Yes, it is not even close to September but I think I may have caught the totally-clichéd-but-much-loved Spring fever. Admittedly I am not running around cleaning the house (because honestly, spring cleaning is what?) but I am certainly drifting off into daydreams of flowers, puppies and rainbows.

The Proud Moment

Update: Check out Kelli’s awesome National Can It Forward Day Post! Her e-book sounds fantastic!

*******************************************************************
In everything we do, anything we take part of, there is always one defining moment where you finish it, stand tall and say ‘I’m proud of myself.’

You could be the worst at it in the world, for example, someone you may know sucks at football, but even then, said anonymous person scored a goal for the first time – ultimate defining moment of pride 😀

CCU Undercover + Summer In Winter

Every student needs a break and this time, when I donned my trench coat and fedora (I really didn’t!) the sky was pure blue, the sun was shining, people were grinning and the Wallabies were winning – pretty cool huh? Gotta love those big buff boys (I know I do!)

We were sitting so close!!!

We were sitting so close!!!

There was so much atmosphere in the air, the stadium was totally packed and I legit lost my voice after screaming so much for the team! Yep, true I do not watch every rugby union game ever and yes, I do not get the sign language of the ref, but who cares because it just so so soo much fun!

But as much as I would love to talk about the green and gold spirit and the fact that Wales lost all three test matches against us (but whose counting? ;)), I do not think you are here to hear about that. I will admit though, grudgingly, that Wales lost only by 2-3 points each game but hey, loss is a loss no? 😉
Better luck next time (what a lie, I will still be rooting for Australia!)
