10. Something you never expected you’d do and ended up loving
11. How you spent your most memorable lunch hangout
uhhhh not sure… I think that time when Jessica, Fan, Maki, Anqi, Tori, and I all went out to Dohatsuten (where I actually work now LOL), with Jessica still dressed in her HC cape. SOOO EMBARRASSING, but at the same time, so us :)
12. Hardest you ever legitimately studied
APUSH. INTENSE. only because I procrastinated, but like, the 3~2 days before the AP test, I went through the entire AP prep book and memorized everything. and then, on the day before, I went to “study” with Judith and Jordan, went to eat Chinese food with the help of their translation, and then went to Judith’s house for 10 min before Jordan started spazzing b/c it was 10 PM… LOL GOOD TIMES GOOD TIMES.
13. Favorite group project
AMERICAN DREAMS the Waller film project. So many inside jokes and quotes came out of that omg…. “Oh…Hi honey…..” ”JUST KIDDING” ”Oh I am slain!” “So much for everlasting love!” and the epic shoe throwing xDD
8. Favorite book you actually read for English class
Crime and Punishment! I enjoyed mostly all the senior year books though. mostly b/c allen teaches it so well. but C&P is such a deep book on so many levels, and I cannot empathize enough with Raskolnikov… such an amazing description of human weakness, and such a subtle but brilliant portrayal of redemption and hope. <3
7. A time you cried (or felt like crying) at school
I’ve actually cried a lot in school, mostly when i was pmsing or we watched a sad movie in class. It was really embarrassing when we were watching The Dead Poets Society in 4th period Waller and I was the only one crying and waller caught that and laughed at me. SHE WOULDDD. yep. sad day.
Have you ever wanted to have a photoshoot with your closest friends, but it was either too expensive or you couldn’t find the time? Have you ever wanted to have an actual physical copy of a picture you love but only have a low quality digital copy?
Here’s your opportunity to get both!
MSJ’s Yearbook and the Smoke Signal are hosting “Capture the Memories,” a weekend of photoshoots for friends wishing to have photos of professional caliber to hang in their rooms, give to friends, use in scrapbooks, etc. The photos will be taken by trained Yearbook and Smoke Signal Staff Members at an outdoor location at Lake Elizabeth.
For Seniors especially, this is a great opportunity to get some good shots with your best friends of four years before you leave for college. We will be organizing and printing high quality prints for at a reasonable price.
I don’t get into trouble :) the most was during our yb sleepover with the bandroom alarm and the cop coming to stop by at the horshoe ‘just to see how things were,’ (LOL) or getting a saturday because of skipping after aps last year….
that is all :) i am a good girl, or i know how to get out of trouble… almost the same thing!
Day 3: Homecoming- what it meant to you and your memories of it
I still remember my rage at missing the ENTIRE hc week my junior year b/c i HAD to be sick that week… :x
Other than that, I’ve never participated in hc week, but taking pics for it for yb was always fun. The energy,the excitement, and the vibe you can capture from both the crowd and the performers was amazing! Good way to see the talent and spirit at this school that often goes unseen behind massive piles of SAT and AP books.
I guess I’ll do 2 since I was really going to start yesterday…
First memory in high school (that I remember) is meeting Judith during orientation! :D At first my mother thought she was Japanese b/c she had a handbag with random japanese writtten on it (lol i remember details), so she told me to go talk to her… I didn’t want to seem weird and I was like ehhh… I don’t want to… but now I’m really glad I did :)
Judith has been my AP Art/YB insomnia buddy (along with michelle) and oh the random memories we’ve had. skyping at 4am on thursday night when artwork is due next morning, “OH!,” getting lost from Mission to Starbucks, CMU….etc etc
haha I think there’s going to be another question where I can talk about our AP art/yb derpness so more will be said in that one :)
Where to begin… there’s so many emotions associated with anticipating college, but yeah just like most other people, most of it is anxiety+excitement.
I’ve wanted UCLA DESMA all through high school, but in the end it was still a really difficult choice… But I guess I was blessed to have those choices, and I’m glad I chose this :)
On the other hand, I don’t really believe that college will be that much of a life changing experience… I’m sorry, but I feel like a lot of people seem to think college will change their lives radically, or that they will change radically in college. That’s probably not going to happen for me, I can kind of see myself still drawing and procrastinating and not sleeping and mindlessly stuffing myself with food at 4 AM.
But yeah, I’m still really excited for it. I also know that I’ll be super busy though. So I guess in the meanwhile…. I’ll enjoy this derping boredom that is called SSS, while it lasts :)
