just one left .
soundtrack: vitamin c; graduation // thoughts: about the future
photos of muck up / mock assembly / year 12 farewell are here. it was a rather emotional day, really. for me, the speeches, more than anything set the mood off, but there were a lot of people that were crying before the assembly (and even last week). a whole bunch of common and personal memories were brought up in the speeches of many people, some good, others not so good. luckily (sort of) for me, i got mentioned three times, which is quite a lot as it is difficult to mention everyone, meaning that as a memory i will live in many other’s hearts…
honestly, i didn’t think i had so much of an attachment to this school, although i have spent a whole six years (which is a third of my life!) at st george. but the whirring sentiments and the emotional atmosphere had every heart on edge, and unfortunately those who are prone to sadness sobbed the day away.
i have to say that i will, very likely, miss this school. the people are obviously at the top of the list, but they won’t become unreachable. what will be unreachable after we take our step into tomorrow is the feeling of security, consistency and belonging we have, which will be turned up-side-down by the big bad world come next march. our self assurance will turn into nervous anticipation, and without our close friends right by our sides, we will have to struggle to find our ways through.
but i know that everyone will welcome these challenges. our step into “the real world” will be as hard as everyone, but like everyone before us, we’ll make it through.
and when goodbye comes, i hope we carry on this knowledge into our futures.
