June Wrap Up 2016

   Hi everyone! 

   First of all, I'm really sorry that Ohana Reads had nothing new for most of June. After returning from BEA 2016, back in mid May, everything was a mess for me. I had missed a ton of school work, so I was playing catch up, and then final exams started happening. Between exams and prepping for
my graduation at the end of June, I had no time for blogging. So in the next little while, definitely look forward to seeing those last few posts about my BEA trip, as well as a blog tour and a few book reviews.
   At the beginning of June, my lovely local blogger friend, Joy from Joyousreads invited a bunch of us other locals to her house to pick a bunch of books from her stacks that she didn't want anymore to take home. "A bunch" being 50ish books, and holy she still had more for us to take. Besides getting a whole bunch of new books to take home, it was lovely seeing Kristie (Lost in Ever After), and Mari (The Autumn Bookshelf) again, as well as finally meeting Joy and Sara (Just Another Story)!
   The last week of June was all about me graduating, yup I graduated High School. Finally. With the
My date, Riley and I.
27th being my school's garden party, basically we dressed up in our grad attires and walked down a carpet, and our grad dinner. That day started with me getting my hair done, then coming home to do make up and get dressed. From there the party began at my school, my friends and I walked down the Kodiak blue carpet then took MANY photos outside. When we were finally done that we headed to Sweet Tops, our local ice cream place where we ate in style.
   Dinner was in the evening, our school had rented a place in our local convention centre for us to

have our party. We had a bar, a casino section, a photo booth and a silent raffle. The whole evening was a blast, especially when I had won 60 free slurps in the raffle.
   My friend was hosting our after party at his house, but with such  long day I ended up hitting the hay earlier then the rest if my friends.
   Wednesday the 29th was our convocation, where were saw all of our graduating class together for the last time. It was great, and amazing to see as all graduating together.
   And that was my grad. From the way I described it, it probably seemed like a boring thing, but I had a phenomenal time. I'm glad I was able to share High School with my friends, I'll definitely miss the ones that are leaving the city for school.
   That is my monthly wrap up! And now for the stats!
