It won’t be all rainbows and butterflies, but it’ll be one of the best years of your life.
So, I’ve always been meaning to write a little post about what my senior year was really like… but the urge only just hit me when I noticed a large influx of new Year 12’s posting photos of their “Last First Day’s” of High School (and felt a hell of a lot of nostalgia).
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. I hope this letter provides a little insight to your year and lets you in on a few life hacks that I wish I had been warned of before starting.
So without further ado, here is my open letter to the class of 2017…
Ahh… the grand ‘ol Year 12 Formal. Arguably the most anticipated, over-hyped and stressful date for all aussie school-leavers…
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.
“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.
