Dreaming With A Broken Heart



 So this is a new top from Stylezi, and I really love the lightness and colorfulness of it. Perfect for summer!
I'm quite excited over the glitter pocket. Haha, I don't own anything with sequins in it, and I'm thinking I need to add more to my closet.

Anyway...today was my last, official, full day of high school. On Monday, I'll be graduating and moving on to the next chapter of my life.

Outfit Details:    Blouse: c/o Stylezi    Jeggings: Debs   Heels: c/o Style Recognized

As per tradition, the Seniors got out of the first half of school to get breakfast together. We chose IHOP and had a fun time talking and eating away the periods we normally spent in English and Government. Haha, a couple of our teachers were with us too and took pictures. I'll have to get those when I can.
Many jokes and laughs were exchanged. I'm seriously going to miss those conversations...


Anyway, I held up just fine the entire day.
But at the end, Kelsie came out of Mrs. Wiest's room and told me Amarius was crying! I walk in, and sure enough, stoic little Amarius has red and wet eyes. She'd gotten a hug from Mrs. Wiest, who then turned to me and offered me one. I shouldn't have accepted it...because as she gathered me close, it finally hit me. We were done here. After today, I would no longer be a student here.
 I stayed that way for a while, just hugging this woman who has dedicated so much love and time to each one of us. 



Now if there's one thing you should know about me, it's that I absolutely hate crying. In public especially! So I did just about everything to suck the tears back up.
But honestly? When you need to, you should just cry.




Then when we all met in homeroom for the last time, we took pictures and had a lingering group hug with everyone in our class (remember, there's only 8 of us, so it's possibly haha).

Jesse was holding back tears as he gathered us all close in our hug and told us how much he loved us. Yup, you can bet the tears burst through then. I'm a quiet crier, but Kelsie looked up and caught me. "Oh Linda, don't cry!" 


Ugh. The waterworks wouldn't stop then.When we broke apart, I turned my head away to try and stop and wipe away the evidence. But my red eyes gave me away.

So Kevin and Rueben sandwiched me in a big hug and even more spilled out. Aha, but then they started making funny jokes to help me out so I could laugh. 



We really are a little family of our own. I'm so glad I met them. I couldn't have asked for a better class to go through high school with!
So here's to us graduates of 2012. 
We made it!

Aww...sounds very bittersweet! You'll always remember your high school days and I'm glad the experience was a happy one for you! Love your cute top, and yes sequins are the shiz!! Especially gold sequins. I'm in love with sparkly things. Like a moth to a flame. LOL! <3

Awww, this is such a cute story. It's so much better to feel sad that you're leaving and to be able to remember all the fun times than to be glad you're out of there :D

Rhianna Nelson said...

Really loving the shirt. And the photo of you in the tree!! So fun :D
This makes me remember my final day of high school. I was ecstatic but most of my friends were a bit teary. Actually, it got a little intense - emotions tend to get a bit over the top at all-girl's schools :P
I hope you enjoy the next chapter of your life, whatever that may be!! Rhi xx

Loving them litas, and I totally understand the feeling. Graduation can be scary but so exciting at the same time. You'll definately meet a lot of new people and form new relationships though. It's always hard parting with your close friends though.

LINDA so sentimental <333 i hate crying in public too...:) My class is about 100 which is considered super small where i live. I go to private school and the public school in my area has over 600 kids per grade!!! can you imagine not knowing everyone in your senior class? I can't. I wish my class was super small like yours. That way you really get to know each one! I can't wait to see how your style changes in college linda! :)
