How are you??? Haha.
As some of you may know already, I had my graduation on Monday!!!!! I'm all done with high school!
It's kind of weird to think about but HEY! it happened!!!! And it was really exciting. Of course the day started early.
All of the graduating students had to be at the Concord Pavillion by 8:15 a.m. to learn how to walk into the ceremony and how to sit all at once when Ms. Lee says "Graduating class of 2012, please be seated." We had to do that walk-thru at least twice. And then we had to do a run through with everyone's names and go up on stage and tell them if they said our name right. It's a good thing they did that because my name was pronounce completely wrong. My first name, that is. It was pronounced "pat-ree-keya", yeah.... that's so wrong hahaha. And here I was sitting there joking with my friend that sat beside me that there was no way my name could possibly be messed up hahaha! Irony.
Anyways, all of the students were able to choose which teacher they wanted to have hand them their diplomas and then we were all seated according to teacher :), it was easy to find our seats once we found the area where our teacher was sitting. Our chairs had stickers with our names on them though haha :)
Just an FYI, a vast majority of these pictures were taken by my graduation present!! An IPHONE 4 haha :) Thank you mom and dad.
But then it was time for getting ready haha, Dad had to help Mary while she curled her hair. I finished pretty quickly so Tyler, Andrew and I just chilled until she was done.
I was very nice to my sister while we were walking over there though haha, she was wearing these beautiful red suede pumps, but she has a little tougher time walking in heels so I offered to switch shoes with her (I was wearing a pair of sandals) until we got to where we needed to be because the parking lot was loose gravel and dirt and I have no problem walking in heels. :) I felt her pain though. Haha. Andrew asked me why girls wear painful shoes... I just looked at him for a few seconds, lifted a foot and said, "Because they're gorgeous!!!" Haha.
