Summertime

80 comments






Schoolies if you are unaware of the term is a sort of rite of passage for Australia students who have just finished high-school. Schoolies is between November and December and hordes of recent school leavers party and live on the beach. Traditionally what happens is a group of friends road trip or fly interstate to the beach, stay in a house for a week and simply have fun. Schoolies is usually associated with negative consequences because some  people take their fun to extraordinary limits, which of course is broadcast all over the media and makes the whole event look irresponsible. When in reality it all depends on who you are surrounded by and luckily enough my friends are great people who know how to have fun without going overboard.

My friends and I rented a little cottage near the beach 2 hours out from Melbourne and spent 6 days consuming unhealthy foods and beverages, relaxing on the beach and some other stuff...
It was so great to be able to be with my friends without any of the stresses and burdens from school. We were able to celebrate and mourn the leaving of school.

 My friends and I thought that a week away with only each other as company would leave many bitter, but fortunately majority of the time was filled with laughter which is something I am incredibly grateful for. My wonderful group of friends became even closer which we thought was not even possible. #corny

  53. Aw, that's a really nice tradition that you have after high school. I guess our comparable experience is the "after prom" parties, but it's usually just the weekend.

    I think it sounds really awesome to have that last bonding experience before people start heading off to University, or wherever!

  63. WOW! This post is so amazing. Your pictures are just fantastic. I am all the way in the USA-- and we are currently experiencing a huge winter snowstorm. I kind of prefer to have winter around Christmas time as it makes it more christmasy-- "a white Christmas" lol One year I went to Arizona for Christmas, which is a huge desert state that is 100 degrees year round and it did NOT feel like Christmas at all...

    I would love it if the summer comes back quickly though lol I miss the beach days .. bikinis and margaritas <3 lol

    I am a new follower of yours! merry Christmas -- happy new year to you and yours! I am looking forward to another year of posts from you! :)
