Lip Falls Adventure

So after rummaging through some old files on my hard drive, I came across a bunch of footage from a trip to Lip Falls earlier in the year. I couldn’t help but smile as I went through the clips and realised how much I miss (most) of the people I went to high school with.

Dane and I like to organise a little day trip with the school gang every few months to give us all the chance to catch up and discuss our hectic lives out of high school. Although our lifestyles have all changed and headed in different directions, our friendships sure haven’t.

Here’s a little video I put together about our trip down the coast… enjoy!

Being someone who only JUST graduated from high school made me feel (somewhat) equipped to write a little letter to those who are about to go through the heaven and hell that is your Senior Year.

Since I have just graduated from my final year of secondary schooling, I thought that now would be the perfect time to write a post on the reality of the anxiety-increasing, stress-driven ‘night of nights’ that every teenage girl dreams of. I have lived through the heaven and hell that is Year 12 formal so you don’t have to make the mistakes that the rest of us did.

Buckle up, ladies (and gents)… it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

100+ Coffees: #2

Sammi

“Hang on, we got food”

I met the beautiful Sammi about two years ago after we got introduced online by my childhood best friend and her school friend, Georgia. One day in the winter holidays, being the boring teenagers we are, we both decided to finally meet up in person and go see a movie. We bonded instantly at our first hello and collectively spoke to each other as if we had been friends for a lifetime.
