a review

So as most ppl have mentioned, I somewhat disappeared off the face of the Earth. well i've been busy...SERIOUSLY!

ok so let's backtrack to before the start of summer.

there was one day which i'm sure will stay in many of our minds forever...the 1st June 2006!
yes, this was the day where events took place which officially concluded our high school experience and set us off into the outside world - whether we wanted to or not.
everyone looked forward to this day, the day we graduated, but somehow when the ceremony proceeded, many of us suddenly didn't want it all to end so quickly. I was one of them. I wanted everything to go in slow motion suddenly. i had finally realised, in front of my parents, friends and teachers, that i would never have to step into school again against my will. I realised that after 13 years, I would be leaving behind the routine that I was so accustomed to. I would be leaving my second home of 13 years - EIS!!
that was scary to finally know. and as the ceremony came to an end, eyes started filling up with tears, and then the final sentence came "Will the Class of 2006 please rise?"
Emotion filled the theatre, from our parents to our teachers and to us, the graduates on stage.
We then went to take our final photos as a grade, and as we threw our caps into the air, turned, hugged and tears fell. But oh boy, were we happy!!!


Moving on, we all rushed home (especially the girls) to get ready for the night that we had as a grade, fought about, discussed and planned. PROM NIGHT!!
So I went home, showered, changed and left again to the hairdressers. Ok so those of you who know me know that I have unbelievably straight hair that nothing can be done to. I told the woman there and she was like ...yup, CURLERS!!!
I must say I was excited...first time and all. Once the curlers were put she put that astronaut thing on my head and left me for 45mins. After awhile, my ears started burning and I was sitting there praying for her to come bk before I turned crispy.
She took them out, and I looked like one of those victorian girls..ringlets up to my ears. My chocked face obviously forced her to assure me that they would drop but that clips needed to be put in so that they dont drop too much before the actual prom thing.
Finally, after putting on my make-up and dressing, I was ready to go...hehe.
Went to Amy's house where we were all meeting to get the limos...(kudos to your mum Amy for the amazing walkway!!)
Millions of pictures were taken...at the house, the limo, the hotel..
Prom was amazing, all the grade meetings (if thats what you can call them) paid off. Everyone had a blast. I even danced.. which is btw a big WOW coz I never do but I promised 2 guys a dance and at the end everyone danced and didnt give a damn!
The after party led us bk to Amy's...it was exclusive and it was AMAZING!

Though only a small group was there, it was great. Chilled out, we just relaxed and had really a good time (including the tattooing and the unexpected events that occured ... those who were there know what i'm talking bout).
FInally at 6am, we decided to make a move...but we had to sleep in the car first, for reasons that cant be explained..ahem. Alia and I decided to go on home so we flagged a cab and It hink he thought we were pissed drunk or something. we were holding our shoes, bags ear rings..we still had our dresses on and our make-up was not exactly perfect. but it was fun.

Finally home, I was too tired to unzip myself so I fell asleep on the sofa and waited for my mum to get home (she went to pick up my sis from the airport) and before waking me she video taped me sleeping. god I looked STUPID!!!

then I showered, ate breakfast and literally slept the rest of the day!

All in all, it was the BEST, all i ever thought prom would be and more. I loved it.

its gone now...

its all over. our high school days are over. okay to update. we had our last day of school last monday! it was so sad! the past two years were years where we got to really know one another and know ourselves. also, those of you who think teachers are evil, well they are. but you also get to know the good side of them. i've become friends with a lot of mine. they treat you like studetns and as friends. its amazing.

none of us felt like crying and we didnt think we were gonig to, because it really didn't feel like THE last day. but i of course had my moments. i was happy and sad. we were all going around signing shirts, hugging everyone, going crazy (but we had to control ourselves because apparently the ministry had come to visit the school). and i was happy, it was exciting. but then i went to english class and my teacher who ive known for a good 5 years decided to give each one of us pressies! and i was like OMG how amazing! and then i opened the card and read the message and then i started crying. this is what it said:
" To Raudhah, ...whose compassion and humour are gifts to the world."

and if that wasnt enough she put a quote: "The pursuit of perfection, then, is the pursuit of sweetness and light...He who works for sweetness and light united, works to make reason and the will of God prevail."
she's so sweet!! and then the final assembly came! we were all so pumped up. then our head boy and girl went up to give their 'speech' and it was so sad. the teachers did a dancing skit for us. finally the final words. that was when most of us started sobbing and tearing. then we were let out, and the floodgates opened!! even the ppl who said they weren't going to cry cried!

so for any of you still in school. ENJOY IT! enjoy school, the people and the teachers! and take LOADS and LOADs of pictures!

the first

hi everyone.
ok have finally decided to get a proper blogspot. have so many unfinished ones. well this is a final. no worries bout that.
for those who dont know me. i'm not going to give personal details (unless you ask)...don't want to get killed and stalked by weirdo net freaks!! but anyway, am in my final year of IB (international baccalaureate). gradutaing on the 1st and will have prom (FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and then back home for the summer.

its been a long awaited graduation. but as it draws near, its really sad to think about. especially for someone who has literally grown up with my friends. and i feel like im too young to be graduating. i've always watched the seniors walk their last steps on the stage, present themselves for the final time in front of their friends, their teachers. it always seemed like they were so much older. to think that in a couple of weeks, i should be doing the same thing. its scary!
we tried on our gowns the other day. until that moment, the reality of graduating didn't really sink.

this last year. our entire grade has gone through this bonding thing. even the teachers noticed! gone are the cliques, the "cool" and the "nerds". its amazing. we're all friends. every single one. there isnt that border which separates each group of friends from the other as there was when we were even a year younger.

its saddest to leave the atmosphere that i've grown so familiar with. of course, everyone cheers on leaving school. but if you think about it, its just the prospect of leaving homework, sitting in classes for hours on end, getting up every morning. HELLLOOO!!!! are we all mad??!! we are cheering on the fact that we are going to uni. guess what uni is??!!! THE EXACT SAME THING!!! how stupid are we??!

however, we must face the facts that in a year or less. we wil all be on our way to our careers (except for those evil ppl who decided to take a gap year and watch the rest of us suffer while you sit under the sun or are travelling!!)
oh well. its exciting and it closes a chapter of our lives and holds the beginning to another! god, how cliched was that!!
