On My Leavers' Ball

My leavers' ball was last Wednesday and it's safe to say I had a wonderful night. In my experience, events like these are always massively built up and so I tried to have low expectations for it. All I really wanted was to spend it with my very best school friends, celebrating our hard work over the past two years and to hit the dance floor towards the end of the night! 

Spending a day getting pampered is my idea of heaven to be perfectly honest, so I loved having my hair and make up done, and then getting ready with my friends. After two months of non-stop stress in the lead up to my A Levels, this day was just what the doctor ordered. Once I'd gone up in front of my year group and their parents to receive my graduation certificate from the Head without tripping and falling (which was a serious worry!), we had a bucks fizz reception and were soon off on the coach to Hampton Court Golf Club.

Three courses later we all went downstairs to have a dance which was absolutely hilarious. And before I knew it, it was over, and we headed to a club for the rest of the night. Honestly, I can't believe it's over and how quickly the ball actually went. Especially as a girl; getting your dress, shoes, and whatever else for prom, there's so much to sort out for it and so it feels a little odd that it's all over, in what felt like the blink of an eye. I suppose that really sums up life - with time always passing no matter how much you might want it to stop to enjoy the moment you're in for a bit longer.

Anyway, I've started to ramble again! What I really want to say is essentially that nights like these are ones I'll never forget and I feel incredibly grateful to have spent the past two years at such a great school with such lovely people. In years to come looking through all the photos from this night will bring a smile to my face, I'm sure.
