it's all like a whirlwind back in time

I'm a bad blogger, although in my defense, I'm on a journey to read six Harry Potter books before the movie comes out. Which I should say is quite the task unless I sit there the whole day not moving, just reading. I've been in a bit of a daze the past couple days, and it's all due to the fact that I desperately need a summer job, while at the same time I want to have an amazing summer before university. I keep making lists of things I want to do, places I want to go, and memories I want to make. (That last line was a bit cheezy if I do say so myself). Anyways, the pictures above are from when I went to get my student card at my university. Unfortunately we didn't tour the campus because it was simply too hot to walk in the direct sunshine. Instead we walked to the mall and had fun walking around looking at clothes and shoes we could not afford to buy at the moment.

Ps. I'm currently mourning Michael Jackson, and hearing his songs makes me want to cry. The world may have lost an amazing musician, but his music will live on forever.

Rest in peace Michael Jackson.

someone is flying balloons

Yesterday was my graduation luncheon but I didn't post the pictures yesterday, so I'll post today's outfit tomorrow and tomorrow's outfit along with Thursday's. Anyways, these balloons (in our school colours, Maroon and Gold) were stolen from the little tables they had set up for us at the luncheon. It was all really nice. I got my graduation gown and hat, which are quite amazing. The tassel on the hat is darling as well, it has a little metal 2009 charm attached.

Today I'm off to visit my university with my best friend, who is also attending it, because we need to get out student cards. So I'll be sure to take some really nice pictures of the campus and I'll post them tomorrow.

Ps. I know I promised the Vlog last weekend, but I just couldn't seem to make a really good one, so expect one this week, for sure.

Have an amazing day everyone!

Hello everybody! I am finally done my exams, and therefore, I am done high school although I don't graduate until next Wednesday. It has been a long couple of weeks what with all the essays I had to write and all the studying I did for exams. Hopefully all my hard work will pay off, and it will show in my grades. Next week I have a grad luncheon which should be fun since it will be the last time I will truly see everyone together, and the last time I will be able to just have fun with my friends. Although I am utterly excited for next year, it is kind of sad to think that four years have gone by, and soon I will be taking my firsts steps into university life.
My best friend goes to a different high school so she finished her exams on Tuesday, so today after my last exam we both decided to go downtown and simply hang out. It was a lovely day and we took some great pictures.
On my last post, a girl named Malanee left one of the nicest comments I have ever received and with it a question about the title of my blog. So instead of answering it here, I will answer it in my first Vlog which you should all expect this weekend. If anyone has any other questions feel free to ask and they will be answered.

Going to go and enjoy the lovely freedom now :)

countdown time...4 3 2 1

Hello everybody. So I just finished my first exam today and now I have three left. :) My school system might be different from those who live in the states, so it's basically two semesters with four courses each. So each semester you only have 4 classes, but they're different each semester, so you end up taking 8 classes each year, although in senior year you only have to take 6 but it's recommended to take more, I took 7. Anyways, that's just me rambling. I've been living in oversized shirts and leggings the past couple of days due to my intense exam revision, therefore, no outfit post and my ability to comment on blogs has diminished. So instead I'll post the lovely awards I received. I was so honored to receive them, especially since I got them both during the same post. Thank you so much :)

This first one is from Casey from sing before seven :

And this is from the lovely lady at 2 Percent :

10 Honest Things About Myself:
1. I have an addiction to sticky tabs and highlighters. So my notes are always colour coded and just really bright.
2. I am starting my first year of university in September and although I am really excited, I am also really scared for what is to come.
3. I would adore to study a semester abroad in Europe, especially England, France or Switzerland.
4. I don't believe in love at first sight, although I'm a hopeless romantic.
5. Although I have read all the Twilight books, own one, I've seen the movies and even contemplated going to the midnight book release for the last book, I hate Twilight and when people say it's better than Harry Potter, I will whole heartedly defend Harry Potter.
6.  I think I was born in the wrong Era. 
7. I  collect napkins, clean ones that is.
8. I have an addiction to Pellegrino. 
9. I have an unhealthy obsession with Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl and Friends. 
10. When something emotional occurs in my life I will imagine a certain song playing during the moment, so it feels as if I am in a movie.

And because I'm supposed to give this award to 7 bloggers, here are the 7 lucky ones. I chose some because they were the first clogs I ever read, and others because reading their blog always put a smile on my face:

- I must thank the person who gave me the award and list their blog and link it
- I must list 10 honest things about myself
- I must put a copy of The Honest Scrap Logo on my blog.
- I must select at least 7 other worthy bloggers & list their links
- I must notify the bloggers of the award and hopefully they will follow the above three requirements also.

So I have some various things in store for after my exams, which finish this Friday. This summer, you can all expect:

-a new header
-my first ever Vlog
-some new DIY's as well as some tutorials
-friends features, you will all get to meet some of my friends, most likely in a Vlog
-my own award to give away :)

+ some other things once I come up with them

Have amazing week everybody and I will be back on Friday with an outfit update!

one night, one more time

Hello everybody, sorry for my lack of updates, but I have been extremely busy. I finish high school in 2 days and then I have exams and then I am FREE! Lately because of school, sleepless nights, high school ending, and so on,  my blog has been sliding down the list of my top priorities at the moment. Anyways, these are my promised prom pictures. I'm not posting pictures of me and my friends, so these are the ones my lovely parents took before I left for prom. Overall, prom was fun, although there were those people that just had to ruin the night. I'll obviously remember prom for many years to come, but it was certainly not a highlight of my high school career.

Ps. Thank you so much to the two lovely people who have given me awards. I noticed one of them calls for a little questionnaire bit,  so I'll put that up in my next post.  One again, sorry for my lack of posts, they will get better though. I promise! Thank you for all the support.

And how did I arrive to prom? Well, in style of course.

it feels like a Harry Potter book

Hey everybody, so Prom is tomorrow, and I'm very excited. For those wondering, I'm not going with a date, just my friends. I personally believe that dates are overrated unless you're dating someone cause otherwise you have to spend the whole night with the person and even if you agree to spend time away the whole time you'll be wondering if they're having fun or not. So I'm anti-date at the moment. Anyways, expect a HUGE update on Saturday. I am so so so so excited for prom. It's gonna be amazing.

Anyways, last Saturday I went to visit my university campus and here are some pictures. My dad insisted on taking my outfits photos by the tree, lol. :) This is a VERY small part of the campus, but the university is separated into these colleges that act as a sort of home base. Anyways, there were a lot of pictures, but I had to pick an choose. I cannot wait for university next year :)

This is the dining hall. It looks like the Great Hall.
