Prom 2014 and Graduation

Hey everyone! I'm officially an 8th grade graduate. On Saturday June 14, 2014 I graduated from my middle school. In September I start High School which is scary.

If you aren't from America, this is how the schooling system works:

-Pre-school and Nursery (2-4 years old)

                                                   Then there are two options

-Catholic/Private/Independent School                                                  
(Kindergarten to 8th grade)                                                                

-Public School
(Kindergarten to 5th grade)

I chose to leave my catholic elementary school after fifth grade to switch to a middle school.

-Middle School
(6th grade to 8th grade)

-High School
(9th to 12th grade)

After high school there is college and university depending on where  you go.


As I was saying, I graduated middle school. I left my elementary school in fifth grade not knowing anyone in my new school. Over the three years I became friends with girls and boys who I can't picture my life without. It was a long three years but I wouldn't change it for anything.

My school does a 8th grade prom. Basically, all the girls wear dresses and the boys dress up and there is a dinner and dancing. I have to say everybody looked very handsome and gorgeous. It was the final event before everyone goes their separate ways to high school. Only one girl, Emily (one of my best friends), is going to the same school as me next year. Hopefully I stay close with some of my friends because we are going to different schools. One of the things about New York is that there are a lot of high schools to choose from.

From Left to Right:
Emily, Me, Meghan, Teressa, Elizabeth (She is going to be in a post very soon!), and Amanda

My dress was from Prom Girl and it was in a beige/tan color. It wasn't very expensive and I loved it so much. Usually I wouldn't buy a dress online since I wouldn't know if it fits or not. The sizing was perfect. If you're looking for a prom dress I would suggest looking there.

These are my two best friends. We are going to different schools next year but we will remain friends. That's the thing about friends, when you find the perfect ones you hold on to them and don't let go.

I am a graduate of the Class of 2014 from my middle school. Congratulations everyone who graduated this year. Happy Summer! Bring it on High School, I'm ready.

New posts 2-4 times a week throughout the Summer starting now!
