What changed during our four years? by

Aya Abuosbeh ‘13 and Mohammed Abu Dalhoum ‘13

Rewinding and arriving at 2009. 6 am in the morning, freshmen wake up and look extremely excited and polished. They arrive at breakfast at 7 am, or even before the staff arrive at the dining hall…Okay maybe not, but you get the point. Let’s just briefly describe the way we looked: Shirts tucked in, different tie everyday, buttoned blazers, combed hair, backpacks for books, and briefcase with an overnight fully charged laptop. Of course, we would be the first people to check in with the junior fellows at the doors of the auditorium for school meeting, which was actually the first thing on our daily schedule. Freshmen would be seated quietly, and those who are 10 seconds late would spend the whole day apologizing to the dean, our dearest Ms. Reem. During classes, we would be walking in straight lines, rushing to our class in order to make sure we were 4 minutes early. We would have 5 pens and pencils, “just in case we need it”. Our discussions revolved around dreams of changing the world, and using “I Have a Dream” for our first declamation. As for co-curriculars, 95% of the boys signed up for soccer, and the girls would be in either volleyball or yoga. And, of course, we would all arrive on time enthusiastically. Now, let’s go back to 2013. The same freshmen are now seniors. 8:32 am, and being woken up by public safety, and still going back to sleep. Buying breakfast from the Kaziyeh because “it’s too late to go to first period anyway”. A brief description of the way we look: Dr. John following us around so we would tuck our shirts in, tie inside the pocket, hair…well, not even going to talk about it, the backpack is “somewhere in the academy building since yesterday”, and the laptop is in lost&found as specified in the email sent by the IT staff. School meeting? Ain’t nobody got time fo dat #FashionablyLate. Those who are late spend the day dodging Mr. Imad. Classes? What classes? Oh, the fun ones are the ones that we actually consider going to, and the rest are just mentioned in our attendance letters. In between classes, we take the long route since the OSL area is our “Bermuda Triangle”, you know, unshaved beards and no school shirts. We hope to have underclassmen in our courses so we could borrow a pen or pencil. Declamations are renamed “improvisations” now. As for co-curricualrs, most of us would be lounging around the Health Center with fake injuries…But boys are still in soccer. However, we will always be King’s favorite freshmen and senior class. Since this is our last issue, we would like to thank all teachers and faculty members who bore with us, and were able to keep up with all of these changes.
