It isn't momentous because I will have to go back to school for all my exams and then there's the leavers ball, so actually its not like I'll never see this place again.
But I've been at school for all my life. For pretty much as long as I can remember my life has been divided into holiday time and school time. I can't imagine not having to worry about wearing the right clothes, or going to assemblies, or trying to avoid pe, or spending hours on the bus everyday or just having to be at school 5 days a week. I won't be forced to be around people I don't like most days of the week but neither will I be in almost daily contact with the friends I have made here. its another gradual step towards being an adult which still hasn't sunk in properly yet. I don't know when it will really. maybe the ball when everyone will genuinely be seeing each other for the last time. or maybe next september, when my sister will be going back to school and I won't be. its weird to think that school will soon just be something I remember doing and look back on, instead of a huge and basic part of my life.
anyway it was a nice last day. it was sunny and we ran around dressed as pirates getting shouted at for moving the furniture outside and standing on the roof. the teachers were all exceptionally nice to us and hugged everyone. then we left, and me and my friend drove out for the last time, before we had to turn back because we realised we'd left the pirate flag in someone's office.
this was definitely the bit from spring breakers which struck me most when I watched it. it kind of reminded me of the last day of school. obviously we didn't run around shooting shoving guns in peoples faces but its that same mixture of kind of havoc, elation, sadness and surrealness which I think everyone feels on their last day of compulsory education.
