topsail love

on sunday, i drove back from asheville {western nc} then hopped in the car on monday morning with abby & kelsey & drove just about as far east as you can go in the state! i honestly could not ask for anything more than a road trip with sisters. it was abby's last fling before the ring & we had a wonderful time. i really enjoyed getting to know the b-maids better & the beach is always exciting.

graduation day

this is all really hard to believe. i cannot believe that it is here at last. i am so done with high school!!!

it's ridiculous.

yesterday was perfect in every way. everyone seemed genuinely happy & excited about the future. i especially felt very loved. there were a countless number of people who were there that i did not expect to see.

i know full well, that jacob, matthew, andrew, dylan,& timothy are going to do wonderful things with their lives & i cannot wait to find out what they end up doing.

life's good.

p.s. i've been so ready to be done that i could not bring myself to writing my speech until a few minutes before. . . i ended up writing my speech in the bathroom right before the ceremony started! & you know what? . . . no matter how it went, i'm now officially done with high school forever.

i don't know what happened. when i got back yesterday from the beach, i went to upload all the photos from the 3-day trip, & noticed that some photo files were missing. i mentioned it to dad & asked if he could search for me. after a while, we both came to the conclusion that my photos were gone for ever. that means, i no longer have any record of winter or spring last year, india, charleston, d.c., nyc/ boston, etc. thankfully i somehow still managed to keep files from the first of this year. . . it is so strange and upsetting. my photos, although not that good, are some of the things i value most. i love to find older pictures & find something new to love in them. what most upsets me is that i just recently went back and edited/cropped new india pictures, and b/c i did not publish them, there is no record of them at all.

i know that something good will eventually come out of all this, but it is still just really hard for me to come to terms with. . .

in other more positive news, i graduated from yoga teacher training {such a bittersweet experience} & the beach trip was magnifique!

before i go

so. . . i'm officially done with every ap, sat, act, psat, sat II test! & it feels wonderful!

i'm heading to asheville for my last weekend in just a few minutes. i honestly don't know what to say about all of this. it has been such an incredible journey & i don't know what i will do without seeing my dear friends and teachers every month. this video kinda sums up how i feel about this place/these people.

{all photos from weekend no. 8}

much love.
