The ABCs of Growing Up

Here's the day you hoped would never come
Don't feed me violins
Just run with me through rows of speeding cars
The papercuts the cheating lovers
The coffee's never strong enough
I know you think its more than just back luck.

There there baby 
it's just textbook stuff
It's in the ABC of growing up
Now now darling
Oh don't lose your head
Cause none of us were angels
And you know I love you...

-Speeding Cars Imogen Heap

My brother graduated last night, his final moments of high school. Pictures from the ceremony will be uploaded possibly, soon. Each graduate got a tree, a little tiny thing, to plant and watch grow and prosper, to resemble themselves. How symbolic. To my amusement, my Mum informed me it was not a tree, but a simple shrubbery! Still, very thoughtful of the school. 

I wore a relatively simple outfit, first it was with a skirt but I switched it for shorts and tights. Didn't want to look too fancy or too casual. Straightened my hair for a fancier look!

Shorts, AE; Grey tank, AA; Blazer, HM.
