We've graduated!! All that is between the VCE class of 2017 and the rest of our lives is exams.
They begin in two days, and I'm writing a blogpost for the first time in two months.
Thursday was our muck up day, where we all dress up in costumes and go to school in the morning. Jess and I went as early Sandy from Grease and bad Sandy. Our year level hired a blow up obstacle course and those big clear plastic balls you get in and run around, and the teachers do a huge breakfast, fully expecting all of us to be hungover. It's a right laugh and the year 11's hated it because we silly stringed their lockers. Such a good morning.
That night was val, or our graduation dinner. It was a lovely night and everyone looked stunning! Plus, I thrifted my dress for $22. I'm so proud of that; if you ever need someone to help bargain hunt, I'm ya gal.
Year 12 has been a fairly difficult year, for more than just the coursework. My friends, family, boyfriend, and teachers have been so supportive all year. Everyone's let me cry and eat chocolate for the past ten months - I love you guys.
I've been quite detached from the blog this year, but I'm nearly through (just 17 days until exams are over!), but I can't wait to get back into it!! I've been filming bits and pieces over the last few weeks to put in a big graduation + exams vlog, I can't wait for it all to come together!
Congratulations to the class of 2017.
We are future actors, politicians, teachers, journalists, lawyers, and even a future coroner.
I may never see some of you again, but many I will. It's been a good six years, and I wish all of us the best in the future.
a few piccies of some good times with good people from the past few weeks
i turned eighteen on monday
on other birthdays i haven't felt different, like nothing had changed
i was still me
it was just another turn around the sun
but this year i feel new
if i wanted, i could walk in
and announce that i had gotten that tiny elephant inked on my wrist
a permanent elephant keeping me safe
elephants have always been good luck for me
i'm sitting on my bed and the window is open
and my fairy lights are on and the room is a glowed blur
and it's a kind of bliss
but the constant worry about school and what i'll do after;
is still there
Friday night brain dump.

Hey hey hey!
It's already July, nearly, which marks only four months until my final exams. I can't quite believe it? I'm sort of thinking of doing a super casual video just chatting about what I'm thinking for next year, and school etc. It has only been four months since my last video. Help?
Anyway. I am so excited to share this third and final collab with Tobi (the first here, the second here!) This dress is the cutest - and could so easily be dressed up or down (and I'm thinking it would look so good with a denim jacket).
What else, what else? Ooh - I got tickets to Lorde's concert the other day. I was, and still am, so over the moon. She's in Melbourne only a few days after my final exam, so Jess and I are going to go to that. If we can get through exam period, Lorde is waiting for us, ahaha. I can not wait.
Hope you're all keeping warm, it's freezing down here in Melbourne!
Lotsa love, Ella x
