DO NOT USE WITHOUT PERMISSION


WE MUST ACCEPT THE END OF SOMETHING IN ORDER TO BEGIN TO BUILD SOMETHING NEW

YEAR-END SCHOOLBOOK INDEX Youth is not a time of life - it is a state of mind, it is a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over love of ease.

4

Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old only by deserting their ideals. Years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, doubt, self-distrust, fear and despair - these are the long, long years that bow the head and turn the growing spirit back to dust. Whether they are sixteen or seventy, there is in every being’s heart the love of wonder, the sweet amazement at the stars and starlike things and thoughts, the undaunted challenge of events, the unfailing childlike appetite for what is to come next, and the joy and the game of life.

SCHOOLMATES

So Long Are You Young — by D. Quinones

CONTRIBUTORS Fashion Editor/Producer/ Graphic Design/ Stylist: Fellini Rose - Photographer: Nhi Ngo (Andi Nguyen); Katsu Phuong - Model: Usagi Nguyen; Linh Khieu, Minh Hieu; Manh Cao; Khanh Vu / MUA: Bien Vu Luan; My Hang Truong; Vu Duong Vy Khanh/ Assistants: Au Tri Kiet; Hinata Kul; Nguyen Hieu Ngoc.

As we go on, we remember all the times we had together. And as our lives change, or come whatever, we will still be friends forever...

You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear, as young as your hope, as old as your despair. When the wires are all down and all the innermost core of your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then you are grown old indeed. But so long as your heart receives messages of beauty, cheer, courage, grandeur and power from the earth, from man and from the Infinite, so long you are young.

CHARMED

The myth about the Charmed One - the three most powerful witches of all time, turns out not a myth at all. And they were here, embracing their true identity for the first time.

Khanh Vu: I did a lot of school plays or musical performances back then. I’m quite sociable. The most memorable event in your high school days? Usagi Nguyen: My parents allow me to go to the painting class after school. Linh Khieu: It’s too much to recall! OMG! Minh Hieu: I didn’t focus on the lesson and start drawing nonsense on the notebook, then my teacher caught me. He asked my parents to come for some “intervention”. Manh Cao: I used to be in the school committee and lead a lot of schools projects. Khanh Vu: I once cried in the middle of a market in Dalat because of my crush! (laugh)

WHAT AdVICEs you are now would give your 16-year-old self? Usagi Nguyen: Follow your heart and go for what you truly love to do. Linh Khieu: Try to spend more time on History, Literature, and Geography. Minh Hieu: Try to let loose a bit more and have more fun! Manh Cao: Take everything easy! It’s hard growing up so enjoy while you still can. Khanh Vu: Don’t trust people easily and stop being so stupid in love. Do YOU WISH TO COME BACK TO HIGHSCHOOL IF YOU WERE GRANTED A WISH?

13

NO TO ALL THE GIRL. Manh Cao: I would love to, as long as I can skip all of the nerve-wracking verbal tests! (laugh) Khanh Vu: I would love to relive my 12th grade once again. But that’s it.

How DO YOU DEFINE A FRIENDSHIP? Usagi Nguyen: It’s a bit fake when it comes to human connections. But it is still better when you have someone to call a friend than none. Linh Khieu: I will call someone as a friend if they are nice, fair-play, know how to share, care about people and support. Minh Hieu: A friend is someone who understands you. That’s quite simple. Manh Cao: Friendship is the most treasure, beautiful and cant-live-without bond between two or a group of very close people. Khanh Vu: A true friendship in my definition is the people who care genuinely about each other. To the point, they can surpass all of the usual up-and-down of every relationship may have. WHAT ABOUT YOU, READERS?

WHY IS LUNCH IMPORTANT?

@khanhxeko98

For someone who always misses the first meal in the morning, lunch is undeniably important to me. There is an old saying “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper” to show the importance of our breakfast. But for me, lunch is way more important (even this believing is may against the science studies). You must be thinking why I claim such a thing? Well, it started with the fact that I am naturally slim. To someone who tries to lose weight, I am maybe insensitive to openly talk about this topic.

21

I think this might work for someone who is trying to lose some weight also. Even though your body will need some time to adjust to this, but try not to overeat because of the feeling of hungry you may have in the first phase of practicing. In conclusion, I think we all can learn how to skip breakfast or have just a little something that is light for the first meal of the day, then have a full lunch in order to have the benefits from it such as: feel less bloated in the morning, lose some weight (with a catch of you might overeat), lengthen your life, get a brain-boost… (for more references and science facts, you may want to read this article https://www.prevention. com/weight-loss/a20470631/effects-ofskipping-meals/) Lunch is important, no matter how busy we are during the day, we should never skip lunch and I’ll tell you the reason why:

But I’ll be honest. For me, health is the most important.. I also believe that your body does adjust to your lifestyle, your living condition, and the environment. Therefore, my body gets used to with the portion of meals I usually have in a day. I eat two big meals – lunch and dinner. Other than that, I will try to have some snack and drink a lot of water to fill in between the gap. With this, I am able to maintain my body proportion, and I’m happy with it.

You’re less productive when you skip lunch Your brain actually uses 20% of the energy you eat daily. So when you skip lunch, you’re essentially starving your brain and may suffer through an unproductive afternoon. That said, an unhealthy meal can have a negative impact on your post-lunch hour productivity. Your blood sugar can drop when you skip lunch When you eat infrequently, you may experience insulin spikes and erratic blood sugar levels. This could lead to brain fog, dizziness, and irritability. If you’re thinking about skipping your midday meal, at least keep some whole-food plant-based snacks around to keep your blood sugar up. You may end up overeating later after you skip lunch When you go without a meal, you’ll probably feel very hungry later in the day, which ups the chances of indulging in some not-so-healthy meals. If you’re trying to lose weight, skipping lunch probably won’t help, especially if you’re overindulging at night when you are home and less active. At the end of the day, you don’t do yourself too many favors when you skip lunch. So there goes the truth. I actually collected all of the information from mamasezz.com. You should check it out to read more about healthy lifestyle or healthy cooking recipes.

Growing up. The next four years start here. Take a deep breath as you walk through the doors. Hear the feet pounding the floors. Eyes are watching, everywhere. Look at the seniors, we wouldn’t dare. Talk to old friends, the pressure ends there. Decisions and choices, always in the way. Affecting your future, day by day. New things to learn, always a delay. Stressful school work and pressure to try. They say always give 110%, but you just ask why? Overwhelming, bored... you just want to cry. Sports, pressuring you to do your best. But you know you will never be as good as the rest. Everything here is always a test. They say these years will be the best years of our lives, but others may think it’s just another few years of throwing knives. So hold onto the memories already made, because soon it will all fade.

WHO IS CHARMED?

ivination

The practice of predicting the future

CHARMED is about three sisters who are the world’s most powerful good witches, known as “The Charmed Ones”. Each sister possesses unique magical powers that grow and evolve over the course of their lives.

WITCHES IN HIGHSCHOOL? Why it is important for me to include a supernatural theme into a Highschool Conceptual Year Book? To my surprise, it started with the departure of a member of the team. In the beginning, we planned to dress up the model with FCUK’s latest collection and came up with a concept that related to FallWinter campaign for the brand. After his departure, I started to act on my own and really think about the design and colors of the clothing. It’s all black, chic, and glamour at the same time. The idea of giving out a supernatural theme - witches to be exact, seems like a really good idea to me then. As a part of my youth, I have always been a fan of this specific genre of movies and books. Besides, Nick Knight, a world-wide well-known fashion photographer who I admire so much, had inspired me with his works which I have been referencing through-out the years. So I know exactly how to put the vision into reality. The final photos came out and it’s exactly what I have thought in my mind. There is one thing I know for sure, that I want to dig more into this concept in the future.

37

Models Linh Khieu, Minh Hieu and Usagi Nguyen all played their roles as witches in this concept. The vision was inspired by two of my most favorite (of all time) TV series about witches and their coven - American Horror Story season 3 (Coven) and Charmed. The original concepts were kept. What I tried to do is to build up my own version of witches in this editorials. Mixing the supernatural theme with the opposite theme as Highschool is bringing even more of my aesthetic as the Art Director. I do list out some spells and powers to highlight the visual that I intended to show in this fashion editorials.

This is the chapter in this yearbook I want to dedicate to my younger-self. Growing up, I have always been watching animated Disney movies. All of those beautiful, humane stories helped develop my characteristics and passions. This is what I passionate about. I want to be able to create things that inspire other people. And I’m proud to show this side of me to the world. Always a fan of Disney.

TIGGER - THE HOUSE AT POOH CORNER (1928) He is known for his distinctive orange and black stripes, large eyes, a long chin, a springy tail, and his love of bouncing. As he says himself, “Bouncing is what Tiggers do best.” Tigger never refers to himself as a tiger, but as a “Tigger”. Although he often refers to himself in the third person plural (e.g. “Tiggers don’t like honey!”), he maintains that he is “the only one”.

51

BAMBI - BAMBI (1942) He is not very strongly personalized to strengthen the environmental perspective of the film. In his early youth, Bambi has wide eyes, spindly legs, a curious nature and high-pitched voice. As he grows, he gradually becomes more mature, but even in young adulthood, he seems a very young buck with a delicate build and a fairly naïve nature.

@manhcaoo

ARCHIMEDES - THE SWORD IN THE STONE (1963) He is known for being somewhat grouchy and sarcastic, especially in the morning. Though he is loyal to Merlin - his owner, he is not afraid to point out the Wizard’s shortcomings and often does. He is, however, very well educated, and possesses a great deal of practical knowledge.

54


@linhkhieu

JAQ & GUS - CINDERELLA (1950) They are an overlooked part of the entertainment value of the movie’ Cinderella.’ They are cute, brave, and loving as they try to help Cinderella escape from the room where the wicked stepmother has locked her up.

PASCAL - TANGLED (2010) Rapunzel’s one true friend is her silent, color-changing sidekick, Pascal. Pascal may be just a small chameleon, but he plays a big role in Rapunzel’s life. Confidante, coach and cheerleader, Pascal is a driving force behind Rapunzel’s decision to leave her lonely tower. This supportive and encouraging companion’s true colors just might hold a key to unlocking a royal mystery.

TINKER BELL - PETERPAN (1953) She is a common fairy who is Peter Pan’s best friend and often jealously protective of him. She is the friend who helps him in his escapades. Her extreme loyalty and dedication to Peter is everlasting.

WALL-E & EVE - WALL•E(2008) WALL-E is a waste-collector drone created by the Buy n Large corporation initially programmed to haul the garbage plaguing Earth in the distant future. Unexpectedly, his years of loneliness and never-ending work allowed him to gain a conscience of his own, and a wish for something else in life to come. One day however, his world is turned upside-down when he meets another robot (EVE) from outer space.

57

@khanhxeko98

EVE is an advanced probe robot. She is hostile and dedicated to her task. However, after meeting WALL-E, she began to warm up to him and befriend him, eventually falling in love with him.

58


@tho_usagi MALEFICENT - SLEEPING BEAUTY (1959) She is an incarnation of pure evil, and responsible for all misfortune in King Stefan’s kingdom. With her dark, elegant design, dramatic and flamboyant animation and unlimited arsenal of magic powers at her command, Maleficent is one of the most popular and recognizable Disney Villains

59

URSULA - THE LITTLE MERMAID (1989) She is a villainous sea witch who “helps” unfortunate merfolk to achieve her own goals. After being banished from Atlantica by her longstanding rival, King Triton, Ursula sought to exact vengeance by usurping Triton’s throne and seizing control of the ocean, as queen.
