Christmas, Formal, a Squillion Photos, Graduation and a Job.


Charlotte's Web was one of my favourite books for a while.

Okay, greetings aside, now for apologies. I have left it a very long
time between posts, again! This is what happens when one finally gets a
little more of a life.

So, living again after school. That's right, people, I'm done! I got
great results, too. Next year I'm off to get my Diploma of Visual
Merchandising at TAFE.

Christmas was awesome. I had a lot of fun, but was exhausted by the end of the day. We had both sides of the family here, dad's family at lunch and mum's at tea. So that was 15 at lunch time and 14 at tea time, because mum's sister and her husband and kids couldn't come. No photos yet.

Senior Formal was also fantastic, aside from my dancing, which is in drastic need of improvement in my opinion. Fortunately, no one noticed... Either that or it isn't as bad as I think it is. I wore massive heels. Well, the most massive heels I have ever worn, anyway. I have tonnes of photos. I will now share.

This is Bec in the blue and myself in the yellow. We happen to be awesome.

This is Michelle and I. We are wearing clothes, her arm is just in the way of my dress.

What can I say?

Two people I love lots: Nelson and his amazing girlfriend Bre, who also happens to be my pen friend. Nelson is our postie. :P

My favourite Shauna in the universe and I.

Michelle and I being awesome again.

Laura. Nuff said.

The Amazing McAllister and her Mitch with dreds.

Nelson's face says it all: "Do it, Aaron, and I will kill you."

Myself and Steph: her and Shauna organised the whole senior formal :D

Nelson and I being awesome.

Squeak (a.k.a. Adam P) and myself. He has a brilliant tie. Aren't ties brilliant??

Chris and I also being awesome. (Chris' shirt matched Steph's (his girlfriend's) dress. It was very cool.)

I just realised that I have the same facial expression in the last three photos!!

I took tonnes of pictures but these are the ones I decided to put up. Formal was a lot of fun.

On the Monday before formal, we had our graduation ceremony. It was a lot of fun, and it was then that the realisation hit me again that I would not likely be seeing many of these people any more. There are 30 or so of us, so we're a tight-knit bunch. We've had a lot of fun together, and I can't wait to see everyone again. Times change, and we have to choose to either move on or get stuck dwelling on the past. Remembering is great and important, but I don't want to spend the rest of my life mooning over school. So, I'm not going to. I'm going to meet up with my friends as much as possible, but I'm going to study and work and live and build upon what I've already learnt in this relatively short life of mine.

It's New Year's Eve, and by the time most people read this it will be January 1st, 2009. Happy New Year!!! I'm off to a country-themed party with my sister which should be a lot of fun. Photos later, maybe.

I got a job at a local pet supplies shop. It's pretty good, I have an awesome boss and the customers are a lot of fun, and I meet their pets all the time. It's great.

Well, I could write on and on about my life, but I need to save things for the next blog entry!!

Catch you soon and take care!

love, Elise

(PS: Feel free to comment :P )
