bon voyage!

Me and six of my friends are going on a cruise to the Western Carribean. It's currently 4:13 AM and I only got 2 hours of sleep and my friend is coming to pick me up in 17 minutes to head to the airport and it's freaking early but I had to say goodbye! I'll be back in a week! And don't worry, I'll take lots of pictures and show them to you!

I'm grajudated!

Last night, I graduated high school. WOW. It hasn't really hit me yet, that I am now a high school alumnus. Crazy!!

I made this dress....yesterday. Yep, the day of graduation. I guess once a procrastinator, always a procrastinator, and hopefully it doesn't cause me too much stress when I'm in college.

But the dress turned out better than I expected, and I love it.

The heart on the back is.....lopsided, and I didn't have time to fix it once I realized it, but I'll fix it before the next time I wear it for sure.

dress, made by me.
shoes, Charlotte Russe.

And now, on to the ceremony!

Our guest speaker was this completely awesome and hilarious guy who graduated from my high school in 1980...and who happens to be the executive producer of CSI. How cool is that!? He was really funny and gave a great speech.

And here we are throwing up our caps! Ahh that was so satisfying.

Takin' pics after the ceremony with my friendzz

And of course, at 3 o clock in the morning, we had to get a picture of us with the sign at the local fire station :]

All in all, it was a great night and a great four years of high school. And now I'm off to start something new and I'm so uber excited! :D

it's starting to feel like summer...finally

Our school, evil as it is, made all 357 of us graduating seniors come to school at 8:30 AM on a summer day so that it could read off all our names in alphabetical order. This was our rehearsal for the graduation ceremony.

Okay. So it wasn't THAT bad. It was pretty damn boring and useless, especially since I'm basically the last person to graduate (curse my last name), but they did feed us food afterwards, so it all worked out :]

Anyway, graduation is on Thursday and I couldn't be more excited :D Yay for being done with high school forever!

So this is what I wore to the rehearsal. It was BEAUTIFUL out today. And still is, I suppose, since it's only 1PM.

At my grad party, one of the activities was tie-dying, and this tank top is one of the results :)

I love being able to take photos outsideeeeee!

I've been so busy these past couple of days! On Friday, my friend and I had our graduation party which was tonssss of fun, and I'll definitely share some pictures soon! And then on Saturday, the same friend and I had a garage sale to get rid of our old clothes and shoes and books, and that was super exhausting but lots of fun :]

Anyway, tonight, I had a chance to wind down and hang out with friends :)

And a couple weeks ago, I went to my last high school dance ever. Our school is weird and doesn't have a senior prom. Instead, we have a junior prom and a senior gala. Both are super fun :]

I made my dress for Gala, checkkk it out :]

And the back, which is my favorite part:

And remember this dress? Well, one of my skinnyminnie hot friends fit into it! So she paraded it around school for a whole day :D it was a lot of fun

And now that you've seen, like, five of my friends, I hope you agree with me: Aren't they all gorgeous?
