We had a run through for salutes and I woke up at 640 and I picked up Angela around 730ish. We stopped by Starbucks for a hot second and went to OPAC. No one was there yet and we pretended to be sleeping when people came because we didn't want to go in and practice, but we eventually did. We did all the skits/dances like ONCE, hahah. Then we had to go in the other room to practice our skits again then we went over the hiphop part. Uh after Glacy and I went to Target and then to Nordstrom's Rack, then home to rest up and get ready. I got ready around 5, so I took a nap. Then we got to OPAC at 6 something. Did a bunch of nothing, okay well we ate dinner and just waited till 7ish so we could start. We finally changed into our first costume and put on our gowns so we can march in. Then we sang the Philippines National Anthem and the parents sang the US National Anthem. We were all like sweating because the lights were super hot on stage. When we got off we sat down and we had Mr. Gajardo as our Guest Speaker.. "tazor it." Oh man. Funny stuff.. he actually brought a tazor and showed us and junk. Scaaaaaarry. After his speech, they presented awards for scholarships and other stuff. I wasn't really paying attention because we kept talking, then they called out my name, well sorta. They said CherYL Lim Faustino, so I went up there with a confused face. Haha but it was money in a chinese envelope and it was for good luck. Cool beans. After that we all got our trophies and went on the stage. Then there was 5 minutes of people taking pictures of us on the stage, then we were off to start the show!
We had the first skit then the boys went up to do their 7 gongs dance. Freakin, the CI boys did it without their pants and just used the wrap thingy. It was funny because Glenn's wrap thing was falling apart and everyone saw him in tighty whities. HAHA. So us girls were up and we did our (I FORGOT THE NAME OF THE DANCE) and then got off stage, but we had to go back to do (I FORGOT THE NAME OF THE DANCE) with the boys and us girls totally messed up but I don't think anyone noticed?.. we didn't do a lot of stuff that we were supposed to do. Hahah. So then there was a costume change and the second scene of our skit. The boys did their coconut dance?.. and then us girls got ready for our scarf dance and the karatsu?.. I'm not sure.. I'll fix these later. Hahah. Well then it was finally the 4th scene and I was in it. Everyone laughed.. and then we did the tinikling. Wow.. me and ronald did so much better than we did at practice, but we still messed up at some parts. Hahah.. then when we did the clicking.. oh man funny stuff. After that we changed for our "Modern Dance" aka. Hiphop. Wow I messed up a lot. Hahaha. I totally suck at hiphop, but oh well, you only get to do it once. So I did. Then we got up on stage to sing our song to the parents. I was totally sweating a lot and the lights on the stage didn't help. We sang "I Turn To You" by Christina Aguilera and then towards the end of the song we went to our parents and hugged them. Now after that we were done with all our performances and it was the parents' turn. Mine didn't join because I think they were too lazy. Haha. Well anyway the dad's were way funny. One dad could pop lock all kinds. He was dope. Haha then afterwards was just a dance thing, but my family and I left and we went to IN-N-OUT first. I was already feeling kjshdgkl;sjhf and when we went home I just laid down then my mom made me go eat, so I did and I felt a little better, but i'm tired now. so LATE.

I woke up at 740 this morning because Angela called to remind me about our senior breakfast thing. So I got ready and went to IHOP. It was Angela, Eileen, Teo, Dan, Mikee, Ian, Glacy, Ronald, Byron, Daniel, Glenn, Samantha, Tim, Michael, Regina and me. We all ate breakfast and talked and stuff. It was fun.
Afterwards I went to the Centerpoint to buy shoes so I could match my dress. Then I went home and took a shower and all that stuff. I went to school at 1230 and everyone was just taking pictures. We finally got into the gym and just waited till we had to be in line to march out onto the field. It was sad because some of the teachers were crying. Aw. /= Well so we were finally out on the field and the ceremony began. The sun came out and it pretty much got hot under our gowns. We all totally sucked and the sitting and standing part. Hahah. Mikee's speech made me cry. Damn you. Hahaha well we finally went up to get our diploma's and before we knew it, it was over. We had finally graduated. 468 of us graduated today. We all worked 4 years of our life to get to this day and we did it. WE DID IT.
So after I took pictures with anyone I can find. hahah. Okay well my friends and the people that I'd miss and of course family too. We left around 4 or 5ish?! I don't remember, but that's when the field started getting empty. So then I went to my Aunt's house and we stayed there for a while and we went home.
At 7 we went to Macaroni Grill with my other relatives to celebrate. After that I went home and Manoy Robbie came to fix my internet. That's why I haven't been really updating lately. So yeah..
OH YEAH. I totally forgot to mention.. I got lots of candy leis and money from my relatives & friends. My Manoy Robbie and Dodoy Ricky gave me an IPOD mini, my Auntie Bening gave me Chicken Soup For The Teenage Soul, but I already read it. Uhh what else?.. but I do have lots of candy.. thanks RUENA for that. Hahah.. and many thanks to everyone that greeted me and stuff. I really appreciate it.
