a very very long week blog. it has been a very long week.
you know what? someone broke into my house,… and stole my laptop. my stories, my poems, my pictures, my songs, my presentations… everything’s gone.everything.
anyways, i’m not going to talk about that regardless of the fact that it really is a sad, hysterical moment for me. i’m going to talk about graduation. somehow the word ‘graduation’ is still sooo foreign to me.
so yesterday, i started my day at 4.30-ish in the morning. had to get up to get my hair done, thankfully it didn’t take a long time to do. went home, did my own make up and wore this traditional Kebaya–it was a hassle, but it really is a one time experience… thing. so i was pretty excited about it all.
it’s hard to explain the graduation. i was anticipating it, but at the same time i didn’t want graduation to come so quickly. happy, sad, scared, excited, bittersweet feelings. that’s what i feel about my graduation. surprisingly, i didn’t cry– somehow because i think there’s nothing to cry for. i mean i still load on waterproof mascara just in case… but it was a happy event. it was touching and memorable and definitely something that i will remember for a long time, nonetheless i will always remember it as a happy thing, instead of an eyeliner-running-down-my-cheeks thing.
i got a $200 worth of scholarship which is not bad 😀 Kevin was valedictorian, so he got $300 and i’m so proud of him! some of my other friends also got $100 for their outstanding performance in the areas that they specialize in. and we know everyone likes to get money 😉
i guess subconsciously we all know that we’re nearing the end of high school. slowly, my friends are going their own separate ways and i’m going to go on my own as well. in fact, one of my friends is going in the next three weeks to Taiwan. i’m going to miss everyone dearly. i have been in the same school for close to sixteen years, and as such, i have seen my friends come and go. this time, i’m going to have to go as well and leave what i have considered my second family. they are after all, my brothers and sisters. my comrades in the battle which is high school, and we have been through a lot together.
no matter how sometimes they annoy me as hell (which is the truth), i will always love them. always.
