I wrote this a little while ago and at the time it didn't feel right to post. I think I will now. It's odd to read something that you wrote a while ago.

The year 12's just finished their QCS (Queensland Core Skills). That's me next year. I don't want time to slow down, I just don't want to forget anything. I don't want to forget the feeling when our stage band sounds amazing, and I get goosebumps just thinking how we're all together in this. Or when I've had a bad day and I can just go to Duck and Miss B. and tell them it's a bad day and they don't ask questions. They just let me be sad. I don't want to forget laughing with Hippy in choir over the stupidest things. I don't want to forget the connected feeling I have with my house peers. I don't want to forget the kids on my bus running up to me and saying a gazillion words a minute about their day. I don't want to forget what it feels like to belong somewhere, and to know people have your back.
