Hi Guys! 🙂
Old friends are important, especially those special girls who were you best friends in primary school and almost always had your back. But when you leave primary school, how do you keep in touch? How do you maintain that special friendship??
Well this was me, is me… At primary school (for anyone who reads this and doesn’t know the Australian school system primary school starts at Kindergarten which you start at about 5 or 6 and goes all the way to year 6 in which you are 11 or 12. Often after this you move to a different high school unless your school goes the whole way through to the end of year 12. High school starts from year 7 around 12/13 to year 12 when you graduate 17-18.) Anyway, at primary school I had two best friends, Mimi and Mel (not there real names to keep it anonymous!) Mimi I had known since preschool and we were so close! From fairies to secrets, we were always laughing! Mel came a few years later and we became just at close as Mimi and I had first been and all loved netball, we had trio sleepovers with midnight feasts! (let me know in the comments if you want to see a post about having the best possible sleepovers!!!) But at the end of year 6 we were all starting at different high schools. Mimi at the local high school and Mel was going to a private school.
Until year 7 I hadn’t realised how hard it was going to be to keep in touch with them, especially Mel. But because it is holidays I have recently been able to catch up with both! Which leads me to today’s blog!
Daisy Chain Days!
A few days ago I caught up with Mimi! It was so great to catch up and I realised how much I missed her at school! So we had a sleepover (with a midnight feast of course) and the next day we had what I am going to call a Daisy Chain Day. We spent the whole day in our PJ’s and spent it on the couch watching a movie marathon and eating chocolate and junk along with two minute noodles for lunch! It was great feeling like I could just be me! And not being afraid she would judge me for my too big PJ pants or if I suggested a movie that “wasn’t cool.” We just talked and joked and remembered primary even watching a movie that we watched on the bus to camp!
I just felt relaxed! For the first time in a long while, probably since the previous holidays! I didn’t feel like I was being forced into a whirl wind of stress and worry and freaking out and girl drama and people drama, I just felt peaceful…
So I encourage you all just to have a Daisy Chain Day. Just have a day of chill without worrying about catching up on that subject you are behind on or practicing your french conjugations. Just to feel stress free. Catch up with that friend from your old school who isn’t as judgmental and rent your fav flicks and have fun. Smile, laugh be yourself… even if you have hidden it down deep inside, try to coax it out… try some chocolate!
Now if you are anything like me, you’re probably thinking, I’m not that stressed. Worried? me?… nah I’m right, I can’t spend a day like that! It’s a waste!! If this is you, I just ask you to trust me… even for half a day. Just give it a go, try to de-stress… you might be surprised!!
A little piece of advice – changing schools doesn’t mean saying goodbye to old friendships, try to make time for them, you can never have too many friends!! 🙂
