And by 'Forever' I mean the 3 or so months that I get off school to cock around in before going back to go to the sixth form. And I have to go back in for the next few weeks to do exams. And then results. Yeah.
Sadly, I've had to say goodbye to some of my friends because they are going to different schools to pursue further education. So I had to bid a tearful farewell to a wonderful girl that has consistently worked with me in Drama class. I told her to never stop acting and she promised, so I'm going to be fairly disappointed if she ends up doing some sort of boring office job.
In January one of the teachers (An Ozzy) left to go back to the land down under and he made a video for his class. They were in tears, and so was he. My English teacher told me to come back in now and then to write for her and my Graphic Design teacher told me she was leaving in June and I wouldn't see her so she gave me a headbutt. Weird shit. My Philosophy and Ethics teacher told me some stuff about eccentricity and how I shouldn't hide it. I promised to never forget it but I've almost forgotten it already. Good job, brain. And of course the Music teacher sung a song.
I said goodbye to some friends. Some had the sort of air of superiority about them that comes with pretending to not give a damn about people, but it was pretty obvious they were upset by the whole thing.
And then I walked home with the girl who helped me get through my depression and I cried for the first time this decade. Not sobbing, just that sort of tear running down your cheek sort of thing that you get when you have to say goodbye to someone who means a lot to you. She's going to the same place as me for sixth form but we're not going to be in the same lessons most of the time.
I said goodbye to those who have bullied me, those who have loved me and those I have loved. It really saddens me, but I've decided I'm going to view the next two years as an adventure where I get to meet new people and do new things. Then I go off to big scary university. Hopefully, at least. Grades and all that.
So yeah, feeling pretty weird. Finished a long era of education for me and I've had to move on with my life. It's almost as if I'm growing up.
