Yesterday was my last day of high school! All the seniors are suppose to dress up, girls in white dresses and boys in black. So I got all dressed up and took a lot of pictures! lol. :XD: And today was graduation practice, we have over 600 seniors in my class, so there is a lot of people to get through. D: And the graduation ceremony is this saturday! So on saturday I'll be oficially graduated from high school!!! :dance: :boogie: I've waited so long for this day! :XD:

And now I can finally start drawing again, expect more stuff and some doujin pages! I do have to get a job this summer, but I'll have more time to draw again! It's just been crazy last month and this week. I have stuff to do everyday. :P But hang on a little while longer! :D

It feels like it's been a long time since I've talked to you guys, so how is everyone doing? Is anyone else graduating this year? Did anyone go to prom, how was that? And going on any vacations this summer? Read any good manga?

Oh, I saw X Men Origins: Wolverine, I thought it was good and Hugh Jackman is soo hot! I :heart: him. :aww: And next week I'm going to see Dance Flick, it looks funny. Has anyone seen any good movies lately? I saw the trailer for New Moon, what did you guys think of it?

At what age do you graduate in america? I'm from England and we recently had our "Record Of Achievement" Evening which I suppose you could call Graduation. Any way we get that at 16. I dunno really know how american schools work and I dont understand all that sophomore and senior school stuff. :blushes: Care to explain? :confused:

At 18 you graduate high school in America.
High School Grades in America:
9th grade = freshmen
10th grade = sophomore
11th grade = juniors
12th grade = seniors

I'm a senior so I graduate this year and then I will start college in the fall. :D

I hoped I explained what you wanted to know about America's schools. But it's so cool you live in England! I've always wanted ot go there. And british accents are so cute! :aww:

So High School is basically Secondry school in England right?
So how old is a student in each grade? Sorry I'm bothering you but I'm reading an american book at the moment and I dont know what age Im supposed to imagine the characters when it says 8th grade and 9th grade etc. In England its simple:
Year 7 = 11-12 y/o
Year 8 = 12-13 y/o
Year 9 = 13-14 y/o
Year 10 = 14-15 y/o
Year 11 = 15-16 y/o
And after that off to collage in the fall after "ROA" (Record of Acheviement ) so we go to collage younger than americans! :D Well you learn something everyday:XD:

PS. I've always thought the American accent was pretty neat.^^;

Don't worry your not bothering me at all. I'm really bored right now, so it's cool. lol. :XD: And I've read books that take place in England and I get confused about the school years too, like I didn't understand what sixth form is or how old anyone is. lol. :XD:

Elementary school
Kindergarden 4-5 y/o
1st grade 5-6 y/o
2nd grade 6-7 y/o
3rd grade 7-8 y/o
4th grade 8-9 y/o
5th grade 9-10 y/o

Middle School (Junior High)
6th grade 10-11 y/o
7th grade 11-12 y/o
8th grade 13-14 y/o

High School
9th grade 14-15 y/o
10th grade 15-16 y/o
11th grade 16-17 y/o
12th grade 17-18 y/o
