Class of 2008
Tuesday. 6.10.08 8:38 pm
The events that have transpired since my "temporary post" a week and a half ago have been...amazing.
I don't know where to start. Maybe the beginning.
Traditionally, at my high school we have an assembly every year called Moving Up, which literally has each grade level move up to their new designated section in the bleachers for next year. The cheerleaders do a just-for-laughs performance with Senior guys (I got to do it this year, and it was sooo much fun; maybe video later), and the dance team also peforms. But what made that day special also follows tradition: at the beginning of our high school careers, as freshman, the class of 08 entered Federal Way High School through a line of teachers, and fittingly, on our last day at FWHS we left through the very same line. Everyone was crying. I was crying, my friends were crying, my mom was a comlete mess...it was on that day that it hit me: I would probably never see many of these people again in my life.
Of course, the ones who really matter to me, I will be seeing again. I'm going to make sure of it. But just the fact that I'm leaving so many amazing memories behind...it kills me on the inside.
I graduated Monday. It was the strangest thing, to be dressed with cap and gown, shaking hands and recieving my diploma...I don't think it's really hit me yet that high school is over. I was walking through the halls this morning to drop off some stuff to my former teachers when I thought to myself, "I don't go here anymore." It was weird.
Anyhow, after graduation the fun picked up with Senior Grad Night, which was essentially a 7-hour party till 5am this morning, housed in 2 different locations around Seattle. There was bowling, Wii, Segway races, sumo wrestling, gambling, all-you-can-eat buffet, dancing, a hypnotist show (I'm a believer now), bowling, pool, drinks, etc.. I had a pretty damn good time too. It was nice to be able to party it up with the class of '08, because I know I won't be seeing many of them again .
On the bright side, I leave for Lake Chelan tomorrow for another 3-day party up at my friend's condo, which his parents are so kindly renting out as his grad present. It's going to be sweeeet, if the weather permits . And it probably won't, but whatever. I'm going to make some fun out of it.
Nationals is in two weeks, I spend the night at the UW for Advising and Orientation, I leave the 4th of July for the Indiana, and then leave for South Africa at the end of July for Worlds. Basically, summer is going to kick ass.
I don't know how else to chronicle what's happened over the past 1.5 weeks. I can only explain the activities I have partaken in...the emotional side is way beyond me and I don't think you want to hear about it anyways. Pictures from my last day of school are located in the gallery, as well as pictures from graduation. Having fun stalking.
Until Muffy can get his brain figured out...over and out!
Do not try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
well.. when we malaysians graduated from high school, we got no graduation ceremony and such. and you r now older and wiser!!

i remember walking through my school school during the last few days and thinking, "man, this is the last time i'll walk through these halls."
enjoy your summer before college! :)

I missed your temp post.
Glad you could drop by. Long time no see, man. We were beginning to worry. Haha.
Aw, you missed the heated and much debated posts I was talking about. There's a new guy on nutang who posted about gay marriage...Randomjunk and Ranor, along with a few others, jumped him. I kind of made a follow up.
Sometimes I get that "I don't go here anymore" feeling when I go to pick up my brother at his Middle School. I bet it's more pronounced after high school, though. Wonder how bad it'll be after college!

woot! my sister's graduation was last night. it was a little surreal cuz I kept getting flashback memories from mine. I wish you the best of luck at Nationals and World. it would be amazing if you came back to tell us of the victory. and I hope that you can keep in touch with your friends. it becomes much harder as time goes by. but if you guys are as close as you say, it won't be an issue at all.
congrats B =)

Nice plastic lei. :P
I play single player. I know the online version is supposed to be more fun, but I tried it before and didn't like it much.

Mm... I think I have a Kodak EasyShare V603. At least that's what it says on it. :P I don't advise getting that one, though; it has screws that can fall out and I had to tape mine up to keep it together. :|
I've felt different lately but I'm not sure what's causing it, exactly.

ahahaha yeah, esp since you have to pick an *available* domain! that's always the hardest, and it's such a pain when the domains are taken by advertisement sites! +_+
and happy (belated) bday to your mummy!!! XD
awww... my last day of school was a bit crap really :( i'm so envious of yours... sounds amazing... you got a whole ceremony, while we only got a leaver's assembly which lasted only about 40 mins but i was dragged into playing piano at the last possible second so i had to completely miss the assembly to practise completely new piano pieces so the rest of my year could have a mass with music. sigh... the girl who was originally responsible for music was very, very irresponsible. i cried, but out of frustration rather than everyone leaving =3
other than that, we had a massive bouncy castle, but the clouds chose that day to tip it down with rain TT_TT sigh... lunch was a pizza-and-chips buffet tho ahaha XD but only cheese and tomato pizza... man, my graduation sounds shyt compared to yours!!! =O
maybe i should move to america x] but naw, my uni graduation should be much better! (if i actually manage to graduate @[email protected])
and darn your party sounds so fun!!! we get a leavers prom though :) i will probably cry there... our prom's 1st July, will be sure to post up something x]
awwwwwww muffyyy i havent been up to date in your life for ages i'm so sorry!!! TT^TT
i will try to be more up-to-date now x]
p.s. damn you lucky!!! my summer will be job hunting. 3 damn months of it! -_-;; cos i'm too poor to go anywhere ;_; i wish i had a team to play in tournaments with then i can have an excuse to do something over summer sigh :(
