Today I had my goodbye and birthday party with my friends. From invited 25 people, about 10 people came. We had so much fun together and I couldn't have ask for a better party than this. Usually I wanted to spend some time outside, too, but during the day it was about 43 Grad, so we stayed in the house.We played the wii together, had barbecue and just talked. I'm trying to spend as much as possible time with my friends next week and I will definitely keep in touch with my best friends. They're awesome and I will truly miss them...

After graduation there was silver grad night for the seniors. It went from 10pm to 5am on the next day. The theme of the silver grad night was Pirates of the Caribbean and there were all kinds of different games to play and a lot of prices to win and a lot of food. There were different card games, like poker and they had a wii, a ping pong table, a TV and lots more. Every senior got some face money and could play with that money. If you had enough money, you could trade it for a raffle ticket to win a price. It was really fun and I won so much. First I won a 50$ gift card and them 50$ in cash, because I won the ping pong tournament. And then at 5am there was the big raffle and I won a laptop with a case, a mouse and a printer. It was really surprised and it was really cool, that I won so much. They had all kind of prices, a few ipods, a bike, gift cards, cameras and lots more. Almost every seniors won something, but not all of them won so much than I did.
Today was the day!! For all seniors it means the last day of high school. Kind of sad...In the morning of graduation we had senior practice first, which was served by the juniors. It was really good and afterwards we had a senior slide show and the finally practice for the big day. It was really warm, but practice didn't go so long. In the evening was graduation of Lincoln High and we all had to wear our blue cab and gown, which is typically for a graduation. Every senior was announced and got his diploma. The whole ceremony went only for an hour, so it wasn't that long...school is over now, and so I have three weeks holidays before I'm heading home...kind of sad, to see all those teachers and students for the last time, but at least I see my friends at my party hopefully.
