Seniors send well wishes to freshman siblings Compiled by Faria Akram, Features Editor

Chris and Brian Hong Dear Brian, For the past 15 years we have created a list of memorable events ranging from finding my hidden report card, noting my lack of instrumental practice and revealing the secret training of my Pokémon (Red version) at night, all of which have gotten me the loving warm embrace of our mother. As I am leaving soon I would like to give you some last parting advice. One, wearing boxers around the house is not advisable, as mom’s students come at the most inconceivable hours, and it just reflects badly. Two, the importance of friends cannot be stressed enough. Third and finally, don’t ever give up your pure ideals or your dreams. Looking at your growth throughout your first year at high school, I know with complete certainty that while mom and I are both extremely proud of you, there is one other person who is even more proud. Love, Chris

Lauren and Sarah Porter

Hey Numbah Two! So, I’m moving out in a couple months. No. You can’t have my room. But I can leave you some advice. Getting to bed at a reasonable time is always a really good idea. If you’re desperate enough, lunch and advocate can be enough time to do almost anything except major projects. If you didn’t get one of those done days in advance, then do not (repeat: do not) fall asleep. Also, anything I’ve told you this semester should be disregarded. I confess: I fell prey to senioritis and have probably given you terrible advice regarding the worth of your schoolwork. The end goal here is getting into college, which you can’t do if you’re failing your classes because of not doing any homework or studying. Love you lots, Numbah One (Lauren)

Emma and Luke Griffith Hey Luke, I just want you to know that I have really enjoyed being in school with you this year, more than I thought I would. Waking up every day at 5:30 for swim practice, eating lunch together, leading prayer meetings together, this year has been a blast and it is crazy to see everything ending so soon! Here is some advice for the rest of high school. Don’t let grades consume your life and be okay with letting things slide every once in a while. We all mess up! Swim like crazy. You have done amazingly well this past season, and I am seriously ecstatic to see where you go with swimming through high school. I am so proud of you, and I am excited to see the plan that God has for your life, for surely it is “to give you a future and a hope” (Jer. 29:11). Love, Emma

Morgan and Ryan Anderson Ry, Where do I even begin?! I hope your next three years are awesome! Have fun with your friends, don't procrastinate (too much) and always believe in yourself. I am so glad I got to spend this year with you at the same school. Good luck little bro! I love you and will miss you! Love, Morgan

Daniel and Zeke Hsieh Dear Zeke, High school goes by fast, so enjoy it while it lasts. It’s the bridge between childhood and adulthood, an opportunity for you to explore your interests and become the person you will eventually be. Don’t be afraid to step out of your familiar circle, to try new things or make new friends. Be courteous, make memories and learn from my mistakes. I’m anxious to see what you will become and hopeful that your future will be bright and your own. Love, Daniel

Matt and Nick Lyle Dear Nick, So, we’re finally at the end. No more fighting over the computer, no more fun facts over which lake is the deepest and no more debating over what people thousands of miles away think about the United States. I know we fight a lot, but that’s what brothers do. You’re very bright, and there’s only one thing I worry about: I worry that you won’t apply yourself, for one reason or another. Find your interest, find something in school, in a college or in life that just takes your fancy and pursue it. Don’t worry about not knowing what it is; I didn’t know what I wanted to be until I was a senior. You still have your high school career in front of you; make the best of it, both academically and socially. Somehow, though, I know you will. I know because, well, you’re you. My brother. Sincerely, Matt

Lamees and Lujain Elnihum Jainy, Don’t worry so much- just have as much fun as you can in high school because you’ll be graduating before you know it. Keep getting good grades, though, or you’ll be dead meat. Love, Lamees
