Pictures Of You – The Last Goodnight

Yesterday we got our final set of school photos, ever.

In the previous years, receiving school photos usually came with “uh oh, wonder how I looked” and followed by “oh my god my hair is so big! (She-who-will-not-be-named)”. But this year, it was also coupled by the realization that this was our LAST school photos. EVER.

I was looking at our class photo, at the 24 beaming (and 1 slightly smiling Scottish) faces, and I started trying to recall what we all looked like in Year 9. I remember Jen had the douchey expression on her face (look, okay…you had a douche-ier one before) and now she’s grinning gleefully with a row of clean straight teeth, looking, dare I say, like a lady. And there’s Vania, who despite receiving “aww” again, looked infinitely more mature and radiant. And Julia, whose hair was the wonder of all 4 years, was just pleased that her hair looked normal sized (oh oops). I remember one year, it had to have been 2007, when the lady taking the picture said, after Julia walked off, “You have a very sweet smile.” This caused Julia to continue smiling for the next 10 minutes.

I will miss these faces in the years to come. I am actually looking forward to Reunions to see if Jen is still douchey, Vania still adorable, and Julia still maintained her endlessly sexy hair.

  1. You forgot to mention your tan. Hahaha.

    Mum looked at my photo and said, “You look very.. happy..”

    I was only trying to show off my braceless teeth! 😀

    LOL @ “She-who-will-not-be-named” and “douchy expression”.

    Jen’s so cute. And Julia’s so pretty. ^^

    I look forward to reunions too.

    OH YEAH! The tan was that, seeing as I got burnt at camp the previous day from tennis, I had 1 half of my face all red and tanned-burnt, and one half, where the fringe was, nice and pale. So on the day of the photos I had my hair all done back, and I looked like premature Two-Face.
