St Patrick's Day

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

First off, i know it has been VERY quiet on the blog front but this internet is dodgy as! There is something wrong with the USB drive on my own laptop and that is how you can plug the internet in... So i have been using this one, Orn's laptop.. it is SLOW and driving me absolutely MENTAL!!! Because it is so slow i cant even upload a single photo to my blog or email! SO from school i emailed some photos to the very kind Lisa King who uploaded them for me =D So a HUGE thanks!!!!!

Yesterday was St Patrick's Day, and as our school is called St Patrick's College there is a huge celebration every year... Because there are 1400 students in our school there are four houses, and each of those is broken into two smaller houses... I am in green house which is called Nagle, and the sub house Rochester, so i am in Nagle Rochester Four... I swear there is a point to this! =P
The day started quite early with a Nagle year twelve breakfast at Aromas cafe at 7am.. I was sad that i missed seminary, but i got bullied until i went to breaky ;) Nah it is grade 12, have to do it all...

Eve and I ...

This is Eve, one of our house captains, and also one my best friends...


There were no classes all day but instead a TWO HOUR long catholic mass.. and then an extended lunch, and then games and stuff on the oval, with all tutors (mine is NR4 remember?) against each other...

This is our group hands thingy, Eve got a great picture for us.. Ready....


And... Break!!


My tutor group (homeroom) is totally awesome.. We have THE BEST tutor teacher, her name is Ms Owers and she is awesome!! She is the nicest, kindest, funniest, honest lady you will ever meet!!!! She has made tutor every morning such a pleasure to go to... This is Dee, the other grade 12 in my tutor, Ms Owers, and myself...


This is Bella and I, a grade 9 in my tutor...


Group shot of NR4, dont you just love our banner!?


Eve and I decided that since it was our last year we would get right into it and silly... SO we painted outselves green! Totally fun! Everyone was laughing at us, and saying hey you look cool.. they also said we looked like the hulk, shrek and a leprecaun.. HAHA. It took AGES to wash off in the shower- i was scrubbing for literally 20 minutes!!!!
This is me painting Eve's face all ready to go...
I just love this one Lisa edited too... So i put both on here =P
This random little girl came up to me when i was painting Eve and said "Makayla will you please paint some stripes on my face like yours?" .. So of course i did, im not sure what her name was, i asked but i have forgotten.. She was totally cute though =P I also dont know how she knew my name!
Sarah, Genevieve, Rachel and I.. I really dont know what i am doing =P

After the day of games the winner of the St Patrick's Day cup was announced and guess what, it was Nagle house! Yippee! Eve was SO excited!!! So we went to Maccas for celebratory ice cream!
Beth was sad coz she's in Rice and lost =P

This is us in Maccas at the end of the day... The guy in the sombrero at the front is one of our school captains, Will.. The other one was taking the pic =P Our other Nagle house captain is the guy behind Will... Heaps of my friends are captains =P

It was actually a fun day... I usually have a great day, but this time it was even more fun as it was grade twelve and i was a psycho getting into it! I was even a bit too encouraging to the kids in my tutor group =P Ms Owers came up to me at the end of the day and gave me a HUGE hug and said thanks for being so encouraging to the younger kids and getting into it so they would.. Made me have a warm fuzzy moment =P

Sorry for any spelling/grammer mistakes, i have been watching How i Met your mother at the same time coz i need an early night =P BUT i have finally blogged!!!!!!! Thanks LISA!!!!!!!!!

You know, i hate to say i told you so, but this is the stuff ive been talking to you girls about. Just having good fun. Now is the time in your life where this is what you should be doing! So many kids waste this time in their lives by focusing on partying and getting drunk etc.

Its so good to know how to have fun without all that stuff. It adds so much pressure to your life. So its great not to have to worry about it.

These are the times in your life you will remember, so have as many of them as you can and enjoy it! Go out with your friends more and then you wont get confused when they ask you to go to somewhere like 'burger got soul' You wont think its a movie, not a restaurant!! he he (def inately a country chick!)

Oh and that little girl knew your name because she probably looks up to you and watches what you're doing and how your acting. Good Job on being a good example!!
What a fun day.

Love Mammamia!!
