silver lining whispering pine LXXXVII
â€œevery cloud has ...
-A Note From the EditorsLiving on the hillside, we are all well accustomed to thunderstorms, heavy snowfalls, and everlasting winter lines. We laugh off those crazy Independence day hailstorms, cherish auburn sunsets, and cry reminiscing about humid graduation ceremonies -- all of which accumulates to our Woodstock. Every memory we make has its rises and falls and oftentimes, itâ€™s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The journey of this yearbook was filled with unimaginable circumstances, yet we persisted and leaned on each other to fulfill our vision. We hope that this yearbook will serve as a reminder to find your light at the end of the tunnel, your silver lining. -Arina and Radha

ADVISOR MESSAGES MESSAGES ADVISOR Chase your dreams Burst out at the seams Never stop trying Never stop learning Live life to the fullest Give it nothing but your best We love you All ❤ Mr. & Mrs. Negi & Vedika Dear Aarti, Joshua, Kiara, Kittapa, Mario, Micah, Radha, Rhea, Rigpea, Rishabh, and Swapnil, We still clearly remember the first day of the 2018 student orientation when Swapnil ran up to meet us in Alterridge dining hall, full of questions about what kind of people we were. As a group, we were a bit awkward and unsure at first, but now, you all are family to us, and we are so proud of you. We will always remember sharing our roses, thorns, and buds in groggy morning circles; laughing until our stomachs hurt during games of salad bowl, mafia, and werewolf; making fried rice and cookies shaped like bicycles and cats; camping out in our living room and on Mount Hermon Flats; crying onto our pancakes during our farewell to Kittapa; and so many wholehearted conversations. This May, we’ll all go our separate ways, but we’ll always be your advisors. Don’t forget to take time to reflect and share your feelings every once in a while (even though we’re taking the wolf with us)-- it’s good for you! Be yourself, have fun, and keep good people close. Love and hugs, Mr. Dinesh and Ms. Leaf
Our advisees always make us proud, We can guarantee it for sure and shout it loud. They are audacious and caring, And never anxious of any kind of sharing. All of them are solicitous and smart, We love them from the bottom of our hearts. Our blessings are and will always remain with our advisees, May God bless you all! Soar high in your lives. Leave your footprints for the coming generation, And make them inherit the destination without any hesitation. Do well in your lives and make this community feel your positive vibes, Together we are a team, always keen and never mean. Our memories may fade away, but by seeing you all, Hearts will make a rhyme, to cherish our Woodstock time. Loads of love and blessings! Tarun & Ritu
To our advisory: Archi, Amul, Carlos, Joanna, Kyumin, Saira, Samarvir, Syma, Visakuo, Won, Yongbean, It has been our pleasure to be your advisors for the last four years, whether you’ve been with us since grade 9, or joined us along the way. Here’s one last set of highs and lows for you. High: We’re so excited to see what you get up to after Woodstock. Low: We’ll miss you. As we often say at the end of advisor nights: This has been fun, but you have to leave. We’ll walk you out. All our best, Ms. Shrestha & Mr. Bach
To our beloved advisees Muzhgan, Tala, Mohit, Abiral, Knema, Perm, Win, Ryan, Zohal, Rohan, Tsering, and Tara: We are so proud of the composed and self-reflective young adults you have become. Thank you for sharing your growing up at Woodstock with us. Thank you for the momo-making nights, the pizza-competition nights, the early morning breakfasts at our house, Christmas cookie making, our awkward first advisor night at Cliff Café (when you were 14!), Doma’s, dance parties in the girls’ bedroom complete with Frozen sunglasses and pink headbands and bunny ears, playing “Psychiatrist” in our living room, agreeing to engage in silly group bonding games in advisory, and for being big brothers and sisters to Haven and Kaisa. You have enriched all of our family’s lives more than you know these past years. It is painfully hard to imagine this hillside without you—your hellos, your conversation, your hugs, your laughter. We will miss you more than you know. As you leave Woodstock, we offer these final words of advice help you stay true to yourself and find joy and peace in your life out there as a full-fledged adult: Cultivate healthy relationships; they are at the core of a fulfilling life. Take risks and stay open to experiences; pause to notice how they impact you. Take walks; fresh air and time outside can help ground you. Practice gratitude and give back. We are so grateful for you. Please keep in touch. Love and best wishes, Ms. Pike, Mr. Tobias, Haven and Kaisa
Hearty congratulations to Armaan, Aviva, Damin, MinJae, Navya, Nitya, Palden, Priyansha, Rajat, Rak, Vikentiy and William on their graduating from Woodstock! It has been a most satisfying and enjoyable year for us to be your Advisors during your Senior Year. We are proud of the lovely individuals into which each one of you has blossomed. We wish you the very best for the future and want you to know that you will be welcome in our home whenever you wish to visit us. This Irish blessing is especially for you: May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand. Ajay and Sanjaya Mark

LEFT TOO TOO SOON SOON LEFT Congratulations, Woodstock class of 2020!! Deciding to spend a semester at Woodstock was, by far, the best decision I’ve ever made. Moving back to the US after living in Mussoorie was so hard. I loved every second of my time at Woodstock. Every single person that I met was so incredible and hardworking. I still think about my time in India and am thankful for everyone I met. I wish everyone the best of luck in the future and I hope to see you all again some day. Thank you for making my experiences at Woodstock so important and special. Congratulations! I miss you all!
I will be forever thankful for the amazing memories and friendships I made at Woodstock. It is crazy how fast one can feel at home if surrounded by caring welcoming people. In less than a year I formed some of the strongest friendships I have ever had. Those were truly some of the best days of my life. I will never forget the dance parties, basketball games, monkeys, and freezing days where we stood around the fire in the back of classrooms and so much more. I cant count how many times I though about returning to Woodstock and staying for another year. Thank you guys for an amazing time! Delilah Meyer
I promised I wasn’t gonna cry. Ooops. But hey, cheers, we all survived with only a little brain trauma. You don’t know how much I miss all the hiking and messing around we all did. Messing with my dad on hikes was always the best. I won’t call anyone out here for doing anything stupid don’t worry. I want to save all the personal congrats for in person. But honestly I still can’t believe I’m not there with you guys. Guess life just isn’t like that hehe. I miss all of you and can’t wait to see where life takes everyone. Let’s pop off. Micah Crider Crider Micah
Classmates, co-years, friends and most importantly, family. A lot to say in such little space, however, I’d first like to congratulate the class of 2020 in reaching the milestone, we always dreamt of since middle years. I always thought I would stand next to you on the mugshot page, yet I’d like to deeply apologize for making my appearance in the infamous ‘Left Too Soon’ page. Nonetheless, I would like to give y’all a heads up: speaking from experience, goodbyes are most certainly not the end, especially after Woodstock, and we might meet sooner than you expect. A, S, P, W, G, R, L, V, K, D, Y (I hope you’re able to identify yourselves with the letters): Miss you guys, Love you guys, Can’t believe you made it (like JINJJA), and let’s talk soon. Lastly, to my basketball brothers: congratulations on bringing it home, and Palden: sorry I wasn’t there to take my MVP trophy <3. The rest of y’all: can’t explain how much I’m grateful for giving me an unforgettable 6 years. Much love, Karma
Karma Thinley Dorjee
To Adcresco: Congratulations!!! I can’t believe that you all are graduating now. When I first came to Woodstock, graduation was too far to think about. Trust me, a lot of things will be different after graduation but Woodstock already prepared you well for the outside world. Thank you, everyone, who made my time here so precious. I want nothing more but for you all to be happy wherever you go. When you have a tough day, don’t forget that you still have friends that you made here. Good luck with everything Kittapa Sasivimonpan Sasivimonpan Kittapa
Woodstock Class of ‘20, thank you for giving me such an amazing 3 years at Woodstock. So many of my key-memories in life were made because of you guys, and I will always treasure them. Throughout my time at Woodstock I got to know each of you on different levels- if it was at R.E retreat, Hindi Class or even Activity Week, but there was never one person who I regret being friends with. Look at us all now, in our final stretch of school and getting ready for the big bad world. I know we all have the potential to go far in life and I hope everyone achieves their dreams. Woodstock will always be part of my life, and so, as we branch out into different parts of the world soon, I hope our Woodstock family will always remain as strong. I really wish I could’ve been able to graduate with you guys, but I hope you treasure the final times together as one grade! Thank you for being a part of my life, and I wish everyone the best of luck for your futures. With love, Sonia Ter Haar :)

I can’t believe we all are finally graduating, it’s crazy how time flies. Thank you all for the amazing memories at Woodstock I will never forget them. The people, the food, and the monkeys(haha) will always have a special place in my heart. I know that the friendships I built at Woodstock will last for a very kind time. I can’t wait to see the amazing things my former classmates will go on to do, I know that it will be great. I miss all of you and thank you so much for the two memorable years at Woodstock. Congratulations! Remay Pemba
Dear Class of 2020, I want to thank all of you for making my time at Woodstock the best time of my life. From the first day I felt welcomed and comfortable thanks to you. I have so many good memories, starting from the first day, when just after arriving I was approached by Chittish and Abiral in Ridgewood and welcomed to the WS. My memories of my time at WS and with our class are broad: In WS was my first-time playing Basketball, Cricket, and also running XC, which I really liked except for the part of waking up. I miss the view, the monkeys, WS food but also Maggi with Cheese. I miss quarter Breaks in dorms and the Lemon Tree Hotel. I miss Buzz, getting a haircut at Scissors, Little Llamas, Cozy Corner, u name it. I might be biased about the next one, but I had the best advisor group with Mr. Seth and I miss our advisor nights. I miss study halls in the library as well as in the gym. I miss the one-night trips we started, staying in a tent overnight away from dorms. I miss dorm life, long showers and all our dorm parents. I miss late night talks in Hostel, not giving in our phones, watching cricket late at night, and cricket matches on hostel court, always ending if someone hit the tennis ball too hard and it went over the fence. I especially remember our activity week in 10th grade and my last day at Batras place. Woodstock has become a second home to me. I made so many good friends and I hope our friendships will continue. I hope I’ll see some of you more often if you decide to study in Europe and always let me know whenever you come to Germany, there is always a place for you to stay in Frankfurt. Congratulations on Graduating and best of wishes for your future life.
“Congratulations class of 2020 on finally graduating!! I have had one of the best times of my life at Woodstock and the two year journey has taught me a lot.

My time in Woodstock has ended and I must say that it was a ride full of joy and growth. Ever since I joined in 7th grade every day was full of excitement and laughter. It’s hard to believe but indeed the unique community of Woodstock has made me what I am today.

To people who were in Winterline with me - All of you are my favorites. I have had the thickest memories with each of you. Just know that I will always be there for you. Love you all, stay safe and never change!
Memories The stressful morning alarms through the Ridgewood and Hostel speakers The breathless conversations on the way up to school The decaffeinated coffee with a spoon of sugar and a bit of milk The suffering from the classes I took The hilarious Omegle nights in Hostel The cute escape from advisor night to Rokeby. I mean, to church :) The hype Wednesday mornings, enjoying fried eggs with soy sauce for breakfast The 9th grade nights playing poker with paper money while eating Maggie The The The The
abrupt events in activity week snowy days and the remarkable smiles on people’s faces unforgettable incidents in Goa and... unexpected farewell
The memories are clear The memories make me smile The memories make me sob These memories will last forever I can’t mention all 89 of you And some juniors. And some teachers. But please do remember I love you all, and I’ll miss you guys <3

Swastika: When you entered our room in 10th grade, who would have thought then we would always be part of each otherâ€™s lives? From taking the same passages, to sitting on the same table for breakfast, to making code names for specific people, to sharing happiness and sadness, to watching weird Bollywood movies, to those little arguments that could not last long, I believe that I have spent most of my wonderful moments at WS with you. I am gonna miss you a lot, I hate the fact that we did not bid a proper goodbye but I donâ€™t think we need goodbyes! I will take you to Buzz one day, watch! Stay in touch and keep annoying me forever! Love you loads! Rhea: You poor little thing probably had to bear with me the longest here! We have stuck with each other since 9th grade and I do not plan on leaving you ever! Iâ€™m gonna keep coming to your house to eat your motherâ€™s Mutton curry and Mac & Cheese. I know I will see you again. Take care and make sure you stay in touch! Love you <3. Saira: Try not to break more tables, Sairo! From Corbett to Goaâ€Ś this journey has been very beautiful with you. I still have a lot of your videos that I need to expose but I shall keep them for my memory alone. I know I am going to miss going to Lottes with you, Syma and Navya for sure but we better come back to Mussoorie for just that. We shall always remain FRIENDS and I hope you start liking Brooklyn 99 as well. See you soon, donâ€™t forget me! Syma: Seema Saahu! Whenever I think about all our memories, I cannot help but start laughing about all the vegan food you have eaten wherever we went. Our singing, dancing and mauua queen will always be missed! You better meet me soon so I can hear you whistle like a bird! XD See you soon, Love you loads! Navya: You will always be the true desi girl, Navya! Our only PAC head, a shining star, and a big blessing to our schoolâ€Ś WS will always miss you. I will for sure miss our days in buzz and hope to see you soon! I will come, meet you and Saira in Amritsar, one day! Ryan: I guess this year Calc class changed a lot of things! But I will for sure miss pissing u off at all times with tik-toks. Thank you for all the things you have done for me, from getting me new earphones to the scooty ride in Goa! I guess we never had the movie night with Swastika and Bhandari but I shall see you in Gurgaon or Canada, my Canindian friend! Bhandari: Thanks for making summer school so fun, Bhandari! I hope you can forgive me for all the mistakes I have made in the past. Stay in touch and DONâ€™T RAISE YOUR VOICE! Jigmet & Gauri: I wish I could go back to summer school and spend more time with you all! Take care and have fun during your senior year at WS. Mr. Seth: Thank you for all the amazing jokes, Mr. Seth. You are one teacher who has taught us a lot besides Maths and I am grateful for being taught by you. Hope to stay in touch with you and always learning something new from you. Ms. Ronita: Thank you for being our mother at WS, Ms. Roni. I hope I can back to your house one day with my friends and binge watch Netflix with a cup of Hot Chocolate in our hands. I will miss you a lot, Ms. Ronita. I hope to see you soon. Mario, Joshua, Swapnil, Will: I am going to miss playing cards against humanity with you all. Joshua, thanks for being an amazing counselor and Swapnil, thanks for irritating me throughout my life at WS about SDLL. I will miss all of you a lot and hope I get to meet you soon! Morning Chai: I hope we are able to perform once more after chanting Chai, Chai, Chai, Morning Chai! All the memories were amazing and I am very sorry for always stepping on you all! See you soon, Love you always! Negi Advisory: Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Negi for being so accomodating and loving and thank you to everyone in the advisory for providing entertainment at all times. I, for sure, have had the most fun during our advisor nights! Suhana, Priyansha: All the times we have laughed, danced, sang together will be missed! Suhana, our bhel was damn tasty and Priyansha, 3 wordsâ€Ś you know what they are! Nitya, Tara, Tashi, Muskan: Thank you all 4 of you for handling my craziness. I will miss Goa a lot and you four will be one of the biggest reasons why. See you soon, and love you a lot! Adcresco, This is not the end but we got a whole lot of history!
âœ¨ Diva âœ¨Â My first roommate and friend at WS. Thanks sis for being there through thick and thin. Youâ€™re an amazing person, Divo, and I am grateful for the memories we created and will because weâ€™ll stick together forever. I love you and always will â?¤ âœ¨ Pooja âœ¨Â I love you, man. â?¤ Thanks for everything - make up during JSBs when I make you laugh like crazy, giving (fashion) advice, watching movies, cooking potatoes. Youâ€™re the big sis Iâ€™ve always wanted. I'm still going to keep asking you for help. You've already made plans for my future and I for yours, we have to make them come true now! âœ¨Talaâœ¨ Even though late, Iâ€™m so glad I got to know you and we became close. Thanks for putting up with me, really thank you! Youâ€™re such a wonderful person, Tala, and I loved everything we did - bio class selfies, Little Llama trips, watching movies, face masks, deep 5 am talks, cooking pasta. I love you! â?¤ âœ¨Marioâœ¨Â Mars, thanks for being an amazing â€œbestie.â€?

I love you Kimchi â?¤and remember Iâ€™m only a call away. âœ¨Meherâœ¨ Sister, I love you so much! â?¤ I wished we spent more time together and went to buzz more often.

Each one of you has taught me how to become a better student and person. Thank you! âœ¨Adcrescoâœ¨ Iâ€™m glad to have made a whole lot of history with you all.
Fingers crossed that I won't be in tears by the time I'm done writing this.It was a short time, but it was the greatest time of my life. I still cannot believe I couldn't hug so many pieces of my heart goodbye, potentially for years to come. But no matter what, you all will be the favorite part of my life, always. Firstly, to my first friends in Woodstock, Rhea, Mario, Joshie, Pooja, thank you so very much for being there to guide me through the overwhelming beginning to a beautiful journey. No matter how things turned out, I'll forever be grateful to you for being a part of my life. Playing uno and Cards Against Humanity in hostel for the 500th time never got old. Special shoutout to Mario for all the pictures that I'll frame in college. Now, for all the people who stayed till the end. Muskan, You'll most likely be a British th*t really soon and remember me only when you're typing a mail and you're getting all the grammar and spellings wrong. But I'll never ever forget all the mac and cheese you ever cooked for me, all the inside jokes (nooo I wouldn't know what that feels like, that's concerning, skrrt skrrrt, b* lasagna, and of course the legendary "thighs"), all the nights I've spent telling you that you deserve the whole wide world, all the Splitsvilla episodes you've watched with me unironically. You're the first person that I'd go to after every break up, always. And you're the first person I'd hug after I come back to dorms after long breaks. I love you and I always will, best friend, you're every Rex Orange County song, and I still can't believe you almost let me drown in the rafting trip, h*e. Zohal, thanks for being the best roommate I've had (out of 3 so you don't fly too much). Thanks for cooking for me every time I'm stressed, or studying, or annoying you saying I'm hungry. You somehow always were the first one to figure out if I'm sad, and you understood me better than anyone. I honestly don't know what I'd do without you in college. No one would tell me to study and no one would encourage me to wear my h*e pants and no one would hug me while I'm crying just to hide her own laugh. My god.Thank you for everything my little Afghan Jalebi. You better not forget me or I'll walk to Canada if needed and torture you with my boy problems. I love you the most. Nitya, this is the person because of whom I look semi presentable half the year. this is also the person who wakes me up in the morning to show me her outfit. this is ALSO the person because of whom I'll never go to jhalandar in my life :) Besides that, I love you with every bit of my heart. Your laugh is my favorite laugh and I'll walk up the Midlands ramp twice only for you. Don't forget me after you become an actual scientist or whatever. Sorry for all the AP 2 jokes. You love me. ❤ Jia Loomba, Ek main hoon aur ek tuuuuu. My other VGF, thank you for all the hugs and love and affection and ramen and Thai gay drama suggestions. We'll fangirl over cute thai gay men forever so I'm not worried about you forgetting me at all. And I'm not worried about you forgetting me because who can forget about British tea and ;) My dearest Joanna, you know how much I love you. I'm sorry for annoying you till you started semi liking me back. Sajan ji will always remind me of you, so will certain beverages. I'll never look at a toe without imagining you say "Don't you wanna just suck his toe?" This semester has been very Joannaful with game development, art for all, psych and the hours I spent in your room, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you for being there and thank you for being you. Every library will remind me of you. You're a comedic genius and you know I adore you. I'll miss you. Please don't disappear. �❤ Adu, *copy pastes birthday essay* I love you too much and it's really really fun headpatting you. It's really fun doing everything else with you too. Wow ap lit skillz. Anyway. Your favourite Bangladeshi countryperson loves you a lot and will annoy you to death even when you're a stoopid londoner. Who would I watch fifty shades with if you aren't there with me. Who will teach me new skillz � I'll miss you way too much, adu. Please call me at least once every hour. Thanks 4 coming to my tedtalk. Arina, Thursday evenings with my bb and zohal are one of the best memories I have of senior year. Without you, I'd die in calc and english. Thanks for making everything so fun and special. I love you my arinu ❤ Jigya, I did not end up murdering anyone in Chemistry only because of you. Thanks for being part of many Magical Moments. You know I love you. ❤ Huijeong, Chaar dukan walks with you and mudcup sessions and sneaking out to buzz and running in the storm with you makes me so so so so so happy, you have no idea. Thanks for being my favorite korean in the whole world, ily. I hope you and Pakistani have a very kyoote life and your children end up being very smart in calc heheh. Yangden, thanks for letting me stay with you and feeding me sooo much in Delhi. You're the cutest sikkimese I know (sorry rigpea hihihihi) and library will never be the same without you. ily qt ❤Muzghan, AAAA why are you so cool and why do you still like tanu weds manu. You're so hot and so sassy and I just love you too much NIPPY. I still remember how you opened the umbrella to protect us from the evil spirits oh my god. Please please please keep in touch you h*e, other wise imma come beat yo a** ok? Rigpea, You're the nicest person in this world no one can change my mind. Thanks for being the bestest calc buddy in the world. Swap, You're the smartest now genius I know. I'll always keep the arcade card with me so that twenty years down the line if we end up meeting I can drag you their with me and have you tell me I'm not a kid anymore. Thanks for being a part of some really really fun days, swappy. Veer, Fleabag!!! Ryhaan!!!! Both of my plays in WS!!! ily a lot edgy boi, here's hoping that you'd stop crying to Frank Ocean and Lana del Rey one day. You deserve everything nice in this world you talented mf. ❤ Frizia, Thank you for always always always being there my frizzy. You're the only person who could have made me do tiktoks and you're the only person I'd take a billion pictures for. Never break a leg again and I'm so glad I could be there on your last birthday in Woodstock. You're the sweetest and hottest person ever and idk how that works. It makes me super sad that you're going too far away, but I know you'll be happy there, so I'm happy for you. Maggi and mountains will always remind me of you, you stupid cow ❤ Natalie, Natalie is smort, Natalie is noice, Natalie's bangs are nice now, Be like Natalie. Here's to all our poetic journeys, and all the time I've hidden your pouch and calculator and notebook in calc. You're the bounciest little cutie, and you will win this world like you've won my heart. Kiara, You're the coolest mf I know and I'll never listen to twenty one pilots song without remembering us jamming to it. Thank you for being there. I love you brodie ❤ And to my little cuties who have made every drama special for me, there's no one I'd rather share a stage with. My little Reya, you're always going to be a little sister to me, no matter how old you become. Suryansh, stop being an eboy!!! Gursimar is the best on stage son I could have asked for and Samaira and Diya Bubber are two cuties I'll forever adore. You guys are the sweetest little bunch and I'm so happy that I got to know you all. You guys would have been the first people on my grad card list if I ever got to write any. Miss Roni, you're my mother away from home, and you always will be. And your daughter will come back to you, I pinky promise. So that's all, here's to all the people I've sung Shadows with, and clapped thrice after every Happy Birthday, here's to all the people I've annoyed Timmy with, here's to all the times we've sat in those round tables for hours, heere's to all the smiles and sunsets and happy days, and here's to my favorite place in this whole wide world.
Never thought that instead of spending my last two months doing stupid s**t with my friends, I would be locked in my own home as I watched my sister throw her own fake coronation but who can predict the future like no one could have predicted me actually getting into college. Archi: They say that the tiniest things can change your life and after meeting you, I learned they weren’t wrong. Why you decided to become my best friend after I purposely butchered your name and made fun of your homeland is beyond me, but I’m so glad you did. Now I will have to start making stupid decisions again cause you won’t be there to be my common sense. I am going to miss cooking for you, even though I can’t cook and you still eat my food cause you are a hog love me. All our inside jokes will always be my favourite and when someone says ‘that’s concerning’, just know that I will be thinking of you. Thank you for the countless number of nights we stayed up talking about stupid s**t and all the times you ran to me when I needed you. You were, and will always be, my best friend and don’t forget me when you are a successful writer cause I was the reason you improved your editing skills. Nitya: When you asked who wanted to be your buddy during the first NASA trip, I volunteered because no one else wanted to (kidding) but that was the second-best decision I made when it came to this friendship. The first best decision was to be your roommate. I may have looked annoyed when you asked me to help pick your outfits every day in senior year, but deep down I was glad to be someone who you ran to ask for help, even if it was as trivial as picking out a top. Thank you for everything, from making me pizza bread late at night to being there for me during my breakdowns. I want to say that I’ll miss you but you know that I’ll be crashing in your London apartment every weekend. Jia: I hate you for making me watch Romeo x Juliet but I love you for so much more. I have loved making such weird memories with you from getting lost in Bhutan and then risking getting lost again just to find ramen to our little secret club where only the two of us were there for the meetings. I will miss procrastinating by going to your room to watch Tik Toks with you. Even though we can/are watching animes through Zoom, I will miss going to your room every weekend, asking if we will finally continue our anime. We may not have Woodstock but we will always have Dubai. And just remember, I am your president. Natalie: I will NOT miss you bullying me but I will miss reciting ‘When Love Arrives’ with you. I remember promising you that we will make Shin ramen and watch House during our last semester at Woodstock, just like we did during our first, and I am sorry that I can’t keep that promise. I will miss your little bouncy walk and how our sense of humour connected so well. If I had to be mistaken for being in a lesbian relationship with someone, I am glad that it was with you. Zohal: Thank you for standing with me for DC, even though we didn’t technically run nor did we have a speech. I will miss you cooking spaghetti for yourself and allowing me to eat it while you gave me the stink eye. I will miss going to your room every day and making myself comfortable by sitting on your teddy bear. And no matter what Archi says, we were friends first. Arina: You were the best Goa buddy I ever had and the last three nights, from sitting in our little circle with Veer to our cute Japanese restaurant date with Jia, are going to be memories that I cherish forever. Joanna: I think we should change our majors but thank you for making psychology so much fun and letting me settle in your room every night so that I can take advantage of your heater while having the weirdest but most entertaining conversations with you. Hope that one day I can see you dance to ‘Saajanji Ghar Aaye’ again. Tsering: Thank you for being one of my first friends at Woodstock and for feeding me those pork things that you always made. I promise that one day we will go to Korea and have delicious food. Huijeong: Thanks for always ditching me after senior sem to hang out with your boyfriend. I will really miss our little tangerine dates every Monday second period and sitting next to you in English. Muzghan (finally got your name right): You are the reason why I could survive calculus. You are one of the weirdest people I know and that’s why I love you so much. I could not have asked for a better name twin. Aditi: During the first semester of 11th grade, I remember telling you that if you ever needed my help that you could always come to my room. Even though you can no longer come to my room, you can always hit me up, no matter how far we both are. Veer: You are the coolest person I know and I meant everything I said to you in Goa when I was out of it. I love you with all my heart and keep calling me on Zoom. Also, remember to hit me whenever you do decide to end it (for legal reasons I have to say that it is a joke). Priyansha: You and Bhatia have scarred me for life with your PDA and hope you both know that God is always watching but I will miss us being completely clueless in Chemistry and Calculus and still choosing to sit next to each other, even though neither of us could help one another. To my boys, Swap, Josh and Mario: I will miss our games nights at Hostel and our bazaar hangouts. Because of you guys, I have learned to walk at a faster pace. Swap, I am so glad we became friends and I will miss playing Coup with you in pre-calc and all your inappropriate jokes. Joshy, you have been such a great friend. I am going to miss you listening to my useless problems every time to us playing ‘most likely to’ with fake beer. Mario, all I will say is that I will get better at basketball and crush you one day and I am sorry for not hanging out with you more in Dubai. Rhea and Pooja: Thank you for taking me under your wing when I first joined. Without you guys, my experience at Woodstock would have not been as great as it was. Swastika: Thanks for everything, from helping me with Chem and Bio to listening to me fangirl over your brother. I will miss sitting with you on the steps of CFI for our deep talks and making mac and cheese for our roommate meetings. Diva: My fellow Faridabadi, I will miss screaming Gucci wala gulab Jamun, Prada wala pani with you. Keep coming to Dubai and I promise to finally take you to that place you always wanted. To my little drama babies Suryansh, Reya, Samaira, Diya, Raymond & Gursimar: Thank you for welcoming me into your little drama world and making it the best passage I had ever been a part of. I will miss being your stage manager and telling you guys to be quiet backstage. You are some of the most talented people I know and I hope that you continue doing what you love. Just know that though I may not be backstage, I will be watching the live streams and supporting you guys. AdCresco: We never did have the best luck but I think it’s cause we used all our luck by getting the best class anyone could ever have. I love you guys and thank you for the best two (technically one and a half, thanks corona) years of my life.

Hey everyone, seeing as I have delayed this till the last possible moment expect a mess. A mess like the person I have become these past few years. A mess of love, compassion, courage, humor, clumsiness, and so much more. I read somewhere that this is meant to provide emotional warmth through memories that showcase what I most enjoyed about high school. Without a doubt I can say, it was the people. Thank you to the people who said hi to me in the corridor more than ten times a day, the ones who hugged me, and were there when I needed them. I have a few messages now. Mr. Rusell: You made sure that I never passed by you unnoticed, from when I was a freshman to my senior year. My journey throughout the theatre group has been a whirlwind, and I can honestly say I would not have survived without you. Thanks for letting me into the family, you now have a little sister in me no matter what. Miss Leaf: Thank you for taking the time out to talk and laugh at my knock-knock jokes whenever I needed you. You were the clear, stern, and compassionate voice that I needed during senior year when I was making bad choices and good ones too. Mr. Dinesh: Thanks for all the hugs, every time I was down and needed one. But most importantly thank you for always waving a hi to me, from across a corridor or the inside of a classroom or even the next table over in the cafeteria. Those small waves and smiles made my day just that much better. Mr. L: Yet another person who validated my jokes, and made sure I never gave up in our class workout (even though at times it would have been nicer). Thanks for everything, the smiles, the talks. I look forward to sending you more classic movies and rock music recommendations from college, and getting some of you too. Maximo: You are way too tall, and yet you still manage to amaze me more by how much you care about everyone. The best thing about you, so never stop and know I’m always here for you. Violet and Yuvika: Friends as close as the two of you are hard to find, so stick together and have fun. Sunflower: Hey Dahe, I hope drama sees you more. Keep shining. Caspar: You are quite the troublemaker so try and stay out of it. Elia: Love the hair, thanks for being so sweet. Keep them all in check and show yourself more on stage, please. Alex: Hey, haha. I have never met someone as mature as you can be, despite everything I appreciate that we have been able to be friends. I’m gonna miss buying you coffee, attacking you (with hugs) in the corridor, ranting about my other friends, and taking walks. See you soon. Rajveer: You can be so annoying and yet still so sweet. Take care. CC: Hope to have you visit us again soon and make sure you know that I’m the boss. See you soon. Saja: I hope that you find someone else to sit outside with at night and sing, because those were the best times of my sophomore year. I think anyone can dance, but no one the way you do. Thanks for sharing your passion and happiness with me. Shibo: Keep doing what you do, cause you’re doing fine. Just maybe modulate tone a bit more, and character. Jalal: Stop acting so cool, and start showing people how nice you can be. Naman: Worst Director, I’m sorry. BUT… the absolute best friend, the support I needed during the show, and the most relatable friend I will ever have. I hope everything works out and I’ll see you soon on the big screens. Kundu: I admire someone who knows my coffee order after the first time I tell them, I hope I wasn’t too hard on you. One of the most helpful stage managers. And a friend who never let me down. Thanks for the hoodie:) Fadumo: You are too cool for this school, and that’s all I can say. Also, you’re cool! Haha. Kung: You are truly so sweet, thanks for everything. You would make a decent therapist. Garv: You are my official ‘Friend Who Can Beatbox’ (FWCB). And my favorite person to be around when I wanna laugh. Khanna: Congrats on all the drama work, thanks for being so sweet and friendly, fix your sense of humor, and don’t miss me too much. Haha. See you soon. Preston: By far the best ghost I have ever seen, you are the sweetest and cutest ever. I will see you soon. And hope to be in more productions together someday. Jalori: I hope I got your name right, but regardless you are the coolest girl in all of middle years. Keep climbing. Kenyan: With less baggy clothes you could look as great as I know you are. Funny and smart, you are the whole deal. Thanks for keeping me company. See you soon. The hardest part... seniors. Delilah: Thank you for shaping me as a kind and loving person, for always being confident in my abilities, for heating my hot water bottle, helping me when I was weak, appreciating my humor, showering me with hugs and kisses, loving me, appreciating me, and so much more. I can’t fit here how grateful I am for everything. I love you. Arina and Seoyoung: I could go on about how the two of you have made life better everyday but mostly I just love the free coffee you guys buy me. I wish we had more time to skip classes in the senior lounge and plan gossip sharing walks with coffee. Thank you guys for everything. Will: I’ve known you since freshman year and every year you grow taller, stronger, kinder, and sweeter. You’ve gotten me through so much and I am glad to call you my friend. Veer: Honestly, directing with you was just a scam to spend more time together. Sorry. I hope we can continue to go for long walks and explore different cities together. Can’t wait to see where we eat next. Pooja: Again, been there with me from the start. Thanks for keeping my secrets and trusting me with yours. I will see you soon Miss MVP. Vinayak: You can be difficult to handle but that doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate all the fights you fight for me and all the times you don’t for me. Thanks for being there, always. And I’m gonna annoy you so much for the rest of your life. Aryan: As soon as we started talking I knew that you would make me laugh so much, but I never anticipated the amount of happiness and support you have given me. Thanks for having me home, next step now… see you at my house. Dheer: Thanks for everything you squirrell, get your tattoo, and then we can find some school with decent food. Jose: You absolute narcoleptic genius, thanks for keeping me company, making me laugh, and making sure I’m not the only one falling asleep in class. You are tall but you are just that kind and caring. Never stop being you. Victoria: I wish that we could rent an apartment together because nobody get me like you, thanks for times you respected me and gave me space, and the times you gave me a hug and would not leave. To more laundry! Nats: Not a fan of the bangs but a huge fan (AC level) of you!! You are smart, funny, and pretty. Always keep in touch. Mario: You have played a big part in helping me realise who I want to be, so thank you. Diva: You’ve been there forever and I wouldn’t have made it here without you. Thanks. See you soon. Syma: You are a beautiful fish, don’t let anyone ever get you down. See you when you’re famous. Jia: I learnt to spell your name and that my favorite person to hang with in Goa was you. Do that together soon. Mum: Thanks for standing by me when I didn’t deserve it, and never giving up on me. I am proud to be your daughter. Dad: Sorry, I’m not a doctor but when I’m famous I’ll thank you for everything you did. Proud of you. Keya: You’re my favorite person in the world and I don’t say this enough but ‘love you’. Glad I have another person to always fight and laugh and love for the rest of life.
I honestly don’t know how I can properly thank and recognize everyone that has played a role in my life at Woodstock, with just words. Just know that all of you mean the world to me, and you guys are responsible for my Woodstock experience being a good one. I apologise If what I write does not do you justice, I only have a few mins before I have to submit this, I really need to get better at deadlines… Oh and if I don’t mention your name, it does not mean I forgot about you, I just don’t have the time, sorry. Victoria: You are probably the person I have known for the longest, and are closest to in woodstock, Thank for always being there and letting me vent about things. I will miss our tea spilling during advisor times on Tesdays. Rhea: Oh gosh how much you have changed since 9th grade. You always manage to surprise me. Thanks for just being totally transparent and forgiving. We need to get another tat sometime soon:) Mairo: My boiii, All the stupid crap we have gotten up to here. I can even list all the fun times we have had. All of the activity weeks, weekends first sem of this year. Imma miss hangin with you. Hopefully we can see each other in college. Daeyoung, Saksham, Faisal: I cannot even begin to make it clear how valuable it was for me to have you guys as my role models. You all have helped me become the person that I am, and I am forever thankful for that. Keep on climbing. Jalal: For real dude, you have helped me so much. All of our talks about life and no meaning, and hope we don’t have free will, fun times. Thanks for saving me (you know what I’m talking about) Kyutae: Aight big man, thanks for just being an all around solid dude, it’s sad that you won’t be able to help with science homework anymore tho. Swastika: We had too many great tea spilling sessions, I can’t even keep up with the code names at this point. Thanks for all the good life advice, trust me when I say It helps.High Stoners Crew: I know that right now, the crew isn’t what it used to be, but from when we first started it, till now, I have always seen you guys as family. Keep climbing and being awesome. My Juniors: It’s weird how I ended up spending most of my senior year with juniors, huh. Probably was a waste of time. I’m joking of course. Anyways, y’all better stay out of trouble, alright? Don’t be like me!!!! My freshman Gang: I really am not the best role model for you guys not going to lie… But I always enjoyed chilling with you guys in the cafeteria and playing minecraft, simple times. Adcresco: To be honest, I could not be luckier with my grade, I am so thankful to have such a fun and supportive group of people. I long all of you guys so much, and I wish you all the best in the future. Dr. Carlos: In the couple years that you have been here, you have been one of my biggest role models, and one of the people I trust most in woodstock, thank you for being a honest and understanding teacher, I will always be thankful that I was in your classes. I’m happy to be able to call you a friend, as well as a teacher. Ich muss kacken.

I have had my ups and downs, but the past four years have been everything I need to move on. I thank each and every person who came into my life. This is too short of a page for me to mention everyone so I’m not going to try. I have always found it hard to give my gratitude and even harder when it’s a farewell. High school is finally over and I loved being part of Adcresco. It was never boring with you guys. I made some really close friends and friends I will not forget for the rest of my life. We all lived through the exact same setting yet came out with different stories. We made those stories within and I have mine which I will hold on forever and ever. They will remind me time and time again what you guys meant to me. Also, a big thanks to the teachers who stuck with me till the end and did not give up on me. I might not have always done you proud but I have learned a lot. Your efforts have not gone to waste, hopefully. So yeah it’s been a ride and I certainly enjoyed it. Keep being yourself and good luck!

Half a page does not do justice to the abundant memories made and lessons learnt at Woodstock, but again, neither will anything I end up writing. I’m trying to imagine myself at a podium, standing before you all; to convert that experience into words, will help me create my perfect will. Awestruck, I am at a loss for words. As I stare at the faces of the people from the podium, I see the confused look on my classmates faces … waiting for me to say something. But still, nothing comes out of my mouth. Panicking, I look down and shout, “What is LOVE!?” and everyone’s like What. I’ve once imagined myself getting expelled from school, and the sadness I felt at the thought of not being able to graduate with you guys left me in tears. What caused me to feel this sadness? I have been at Woodstock since Grade 7, and heck, it’s been a rollercoaster. I have grown as a person… although I often wish I grew physically as well lmao; besides that, I have grown into someone who is capable of caring for others, someone who has the confidence to stand up and fight for others, someone who can laugh, play, live, eat, and drink with others. From all the Maggi nights I’ve had, to all the DMs I’ve slid into: I have become someone whose memories are the greatest gift he has ever received. It makes me angry if I cannot protect the people who have helped me grow into this being. I suffer, when you do. I’m happy, when you are. You have pushed me to become a better person, a person with a bigger heart, and an open mind. Is this “love?” Thank you, AdCresco, for showing me love, for I would not be who I am without it. As I gaze back into the audience I burst out into tears. To think that memories are all that will be left of you guys shuts me down. Maybe that’s why I was so quiet at the podium. But in my sadness I found a glimmer of pure happiness. Happy at the fact that I got to spend my time with you all, and happy at the fact that y’all accepted me as one of your own; my tears stop. I walk up to center stage to do the only thing I see fit: at the top of my lungs, I scream: I love you, AdCresco. Our story was cut short, but whether or not we have an incredible ending, is on us. P.S - Mama, Dada, Ketha:Thank you for this journey that you started me on. I hope by the end of it all I’ll be able to make you proud of the person I hope to become. I love you.

Uhhhh. I’m bad at writing letters, especially for farewell, so please bear with me :)
There are a lot of thank yous that I need to make, to friends who stuck around, to my lovely advisee family, to juniors and even alumnus who I still stay in touch with, to staff members regardless whether I took their classes or not, to my family, to my ever resourceful dorm parents, to all the people who came and went or stayed, as all you who I happen to brush my shoulder while walking down the stuffy corridor of my Woodstock life has made the past 5 years quite a journey. I wish that I could have stayed for longer and sit around under the sunlight of the Mussoorie afternoon near Tangerine, talking and laughing about things that I probably won’t even remember in the next day. This is the reason why I don’t regret any moment when I pushed my work away for just a little bit to sit down and talk, to walk around the Quad aimlessly, to stare at the timeless beauty that the winter line can hold at dusk. Maybe my work mattered more after all, or maybe it didn’t. Because all I can remember from the chilly nights of the hills are the warm smiles and laughters rather than me socially distancing myself, studying. So thank you, for giving me experience, for giving me memories, though some of them may wear out and I may forget some of them on the journey ahead, but I will always remember the warmth.
Mumma, Papa, Dadu, Dadi: First of all, I would like to thank you for all that you’ve ever done for me. You are the reason for who I am today. Forever grateful, love you.

Mama Papa: Thank you for all you guys have done for me. I am so grateful that you sent me to Woodstock. I love you guys the most. Inayat: I won’t write you any “I will miss you” message because I’m stuck with you at home lol. Have fun with your friends and don’t be afraid of getting scolded and breaking some rules. Just don’t do things I did. Woodstock: where do I start? These eight years have been a rollercoaster. I realized how important this place is to me when I realized I won’t get to bid goodbye in the traditional way. The Peters: I know I have been troublesome but thank you for always helping me out. You’ve really helped me mature up and thank you for always giving me advice. Sondeep: I’ll miss your naughty jokes and pulling your leg. You still need to get me those kebabs from Dehradun that you promised 2 years back. Huten: One day we’ll have CATCH together. Mr. Beaven: You are the most chill teacher I’ve had in my 8 years. You know exactly how to be friends with the students while teaching them and that’s what I really like about you. Goa Gang: It was a hell of a trip and I wish it never ended. You guys are freakin fun to be with and there was no one I would’ve enjoyed with more. Y’all take care and let’s do it again sometime. Anirudh and Nitya: I can’t thank you guys enough man. I would’ve barely passed school if not for you guys. You guys are the plugs man. Breezer Bhatia/ Reyo/ Rayo: you’re genuinely the funniest stupidest cuties.

Rishabh: I still remember our first day in Edgehill when I, a new student, came to you, the oldest student, and started telling you how things work and the rules and all. We’ve done so much shit together man from you hanging me on the dhobi knob to stocking up at desperate times in Goa. Chittish: It’s damn entertaining when you get pissed at teachers like Mr. Wartho and Ms. Chander. Not many people have seen you do the amount of shit I’ve seen from your dancing to one direction to taking my phone to stalk Shahid Kapoor hahah. Don’t lose touch. Kayan & Shammu: my psychology would be incomplete without you. I can’t imagine the pain we caused Ms. Chikkara. You guys were the first new students I had to handle as roommates and it was a disaster. The amount you guys tortured me especially Shammu with his late-night stories of “batwa mein gatwa”. I can’t even talk about the things we’ve done cuz that shit is too explicit. Ishaan, Beri, Wahi, Aadil, Chopu, Jiten & Kuhu Singh: You guys are the few juniors I talk to and mean something to me. Enjoy Woodstock because there isn’t any place like it. I’ll reach out to each one of you personally. I’m always there for you.

I wish we have more nights of taking care of people and talking till 9 am. Gauri: I have so much to write about that I can make you my IDP topic. I think Bazzi wrote the song Mine to make my feelings for you in a song. I know you’ll miss my cringey lines a lot. I’m so happy that I stopped giving you attention in winter break lol. We have so many fun memories from Ballu in the gymnastics room to our cooking dates but there are many more we are going to make. I hope you can handle your life without me and learn to keep you lip tint in your own pocket. I love you the most and that real estate project is happening:) muah. Joginder: Cousin, you’re one of the people I’m closest to. We’ve come such a long way from not talking at all to spending every study hall together drinking coffee. You better be meeting me cuz you are the closest to me away from home. To many more tik toks and shot videos. You’re one crazy person and never change. Abhick, Cheems & Tawu: You three are the best people I could ever meet and I’m proud to say you are family! It’s so hard to imagine that I wouldn’t be able to see you in school again and make fun of you guys. It’s gonna be so much harder without you guys but I’m really grateful to have you guys in my life. Cheems you’re the sweetest person ever. I’ll miss teaching you how to text;) and those back rubs. Tanwar you’re the cutest giant ever. Thanks for breaking my bed twice and always finishing my tuck. Abhick bro I don’t even know where to begin. I probably could write my whole will about you. It’s been 10 years ;). Thanks for being the most supportive wife, I’ll miss irritating you and our nights alone in the winterline bathroom. Good for me tho, cuz you’re just a couple of hours away. I love all of you guys and I’ll come and slaughter you if we lose touch. Adcresco: We really do have a whole lot of history. We have left a legacy that will be hard to match for a long time. I love each one of you and it’s been a hell of a ride.
RISHABH SHIVAANSH Mom, Dad: I owe my life to you. You are my role-models. Cheers, love you. Tanvi: You hold a special place in my heart. I will always bully you but know that you can always talk to me about anything. Rishabh: Man, I will always be at a short of words to describe my relationship with you. We have something special. I will always value you, & look up to you. Tej: To a hell of a ride. You’re the only guy I have ever cried for. You were the most important person for me up until grade 11.

Natalie: I’ll see my fav midget in Boston ;) Thanks for always relating w me and defending me against Shyla. Abhick, Sethi: sorry, thank you, love you. forever. Kayan: We haven’t always been at best, but constantly been good. I appreciate you, a lot. Aviva: It’s crazy how we only recently bonded & I am so glad about that.

Shyla: I’m most grateful for you, for it is you who taught me the importance of each emotion that I felt in Woodstock, and taught me how to deal with it.You will be my no.1 forever. EVERYONE AFOREMENTIONED: On this isolated hillside, you became an extremely important part of my life. You made it all worth it. So thank you. I will be there for each one of you, just know that.

Apai and Atai: I know we planned for the graduation day, but too soon. This little virus affected our lives in unexpected ways. So much is happening. So much uncertainty. It is hard for words to describe feelings and confusions in such a situation. However, I will still write this because you told me that one day I will look at these words; and if there were none on the page, I would regret it. Thank you for believing in me. Trusting me enough to send me this far. I need your prayers and your support for the rest of the journey as well. I know that you have never been to the PTCs and since graduation is cancelled, let me introduce you to the people who made the impossible, possible for me: Mr. Robertson (thank you for all the actings while teaching, otherwise I wouldn’t have understood English), Mr. and Mrs. Shaw (thank you for all the support. I wish I could pay my respects in person to you), Ms.Seefeldt (I cannot put into words how much you have helped me learn, challenge, and live the life in WS. You have given me advice like the elder sister I never had), Mr. and Mrs. OR Tillepikes (thank you for all the support and love during this 4 years. I will miss Haven and Kiasa a lot), Ms. Shrestha (sorry for all the breakdowns I had in your office & thank you for EVERYTHING. I couldn’t have made it without you), Ms. Mark (thank you for all the opportunities and support), Ms. T (I love you so much and God did listen to your prayers, we didn’t return to make noise in the library), Ms. Vimmi (you are just amazing! Al fahim laham for making Banglore trip fun and BBBS possible), Ms. Ronita and Ms. Prarthana (You made Midlands home for me. Major thanks. I will miss you a lot). And a grand thank you to Mr. Qiam who gave me the opportunity for a transformation in my life! Love you siblings: Khairullah, Nelofer, Manija, Aziz, Deba gak. Zozo ! شیچب یتسناوت وتTo all the loves of my life (Arina, Tsering, Zohal, Arushibiebs, Archi, Huijeong, Joanna, Jia, Muskan, and Aditi) I am so grateful to have all of you by my side; u know how much Ily & the memories we made are just too good. My favorite juniors (Muhiim, Faadumo, Juweeriya, Doaa, Saja, and Zabi) I hate how I could not say goodbye to you guys but thank you for all the sparkling memories. Continue being amazing. All the NHS members, we were great. CC, you are the cutest & thank you for dealing with me in Orchestra:) Yongbean, high five to the best BBBS ever & tnx for everything. Damin & Hakyung & Seoyoung, pretty & talented. I will miss all the dance sessions. Perm, Rohan, Zohal, Tsering, Abiral, Mohit, Knema, Win, Tala, Tara, and Ryan, greatest advisory ever; still, I made the best momos;) Midlands girls, Bollywood songs hit differently of course. Adcresco, I wish it did not end this abruptly, but couldn’t have asked for a better class.
I want to thank my parents for letting me come to Woodstock. Apai and Atai I love both of you a lot. Qiam Lala I want to thank you for giving us this marvelous opportunity. Without you, there was going to be no Woodstock but you made this possible, you became the bridge between me and my dreams. I am also really grateful for all my siblings: Karim, Jamal, Sharifa, Nazira, Nasima, Shuja, and Malo Yanga Jan for supporting me throughout my high school life. Next, I want to say thanks to all of my friends, who made this journey bearable: Muzhi - my sister from another Mother, I don’t know what I would have done without you here. Sleeping in the same bed cause of being scared, going to buzz alone, playing in the rain, talking whenever we felt like, and sometimes asking each other advice because no one else would have understood us better than us only, and the only person who knows all the embarrassing things I have done since day 1. Archi, you’re the cutest and kindhearted best friend I could ever ask for. Thank you for always feeding me shein ramein even if it meant 2 a.m. You made me sure that I am always proud of my decisions. I loved our late night deep talk and gossip sessions. Thank you for always being there for me. The last two years of high school were more colorful, and livable. You will always be my best friend forever and you have no choice in this. Once a best friend, always a best friend. I hope you get married to the man of your life. Cutiepie Arina, my lover boy, what more can I ask for. I will miss our Thursday after school cooking and Friday night dancing. I love each bit of your soul and I wish we could do the Hanifl night one more time. Joana, the soul filled with sarcasm and good rap songs, I can not forget the last two months that we have been roommates and spent some good quality time. Tsering, my loud friend, I know you’re going to be a famous politician one day, no matter how much you hate it, it’s in your blood. Sikkim was great because of you and Rigpea and I could not ask for more. I love you each bit of your kind heart. Huijong, my cute korean friend, and complaining soul, we should meet in Canada forsure. Muskan, my DC partner, can I just say that you were basically my roommate for consecutive two semesters even though we weren’t roommates. I will miss all the gossip we talked about in our room till late at night. Jiaaaaaa, your hugs are the most wholesome hugs I have received at the most crucial moments of my life. Whenever I had a deep conversation with you, you always acted like my counselor and helped me get over it. I also like how we both used to watch the same dramas, and had a crush on the same celebrity. Nityaaa, you’re such an edgy girl with all the green outfits. I am really glad to get to know you more this senior year. I will miss our Friday lunch that we used to eat together. Aditi, man you’re too cool. You’re one of the nicest girls I know, and it’s so easy to talk to you. Having lots of classes with you is fun. Arushi biebs, I wish I could have talked to you before. You are really funny and stats class wouldn’t have been fun without you. Tashi, my pretty girl, you’re too sweet and the one who always wants to do good things to others. I love reading your comic books and looking at your drawings. You’re one of my first few friends I have made in Woodstock. I wish I could have space to write about all of you guys man. I love all and each one of the Adcresco members for accepting me and giving me amazing memories. You all have a special place in my heart. I am also grateful for my teachers, Woodstock staff, and dorm parents who put an extraordinary amount of work to help us and to put ourselves outside of our comfort zone: Mr.Robertson, Ms. Seefeldt, Ms. Pike, Mr. Beaven, Ms. Leaf, Mr. Tobias, Ms. Swati, Ms. Deneene, Mr. Bagh, Mr. Seth, Ms. Amitabh, Mr. Mukesh, Mr.Conrad, Ms. Arundhati, Ms. Daniel, Mr. Russell, Mr.Sah, Mr. Negi, Mr. Jeff, Mr. And Ms. Mark, Ms. Jain, Ms. Gracy, Mr. L, Ms. Jamie, Ms. Ronita (I will miss your khichdi and yummy food), Ms.Priya, Ms. Prathana, Ms.Jun, Mr. and Ms. John, Mr. Bhandari, Mr. And Ms. Nagarwalla, Mr. And Ms. Shaw and all other Woodstock community members that made Woodstock possible. Next is my beautiful, hot and sexy Muslim juniors. I am grateful to have you all around me and will definitely miss the hugs, early morning dance on the way to school, and elderly advice and concern: Fadamo, Muhim, Juweriya, Alicia, Saja, Doa, Mayar, I love you guys. My super talented basketball girls, I will always be there for you all: Tawishi, Keerat, Nysa, Ira, CC, Manasa, Kashvi and Riya.Vaidhai, and Xinyue keep caring about our community and I loved working with both of you. Last but not the least, Woodstock I wasn’t expecting this kind of farewell but I guess this is the end of our journey. Your winter line, sunrise, and sunset and it’s beautiful view shall be missed, but definitely not the monkeys, or the bipolar weather. I haven’t graduated and I am already missing you. This Corona really did this to us. But anyway, Thank You Woodstock for this unimaginable experience because I LOVE EACH BIT OF IT.

Mark: Rooming with you was dope! The percussion band with you and Anirudh is my forever memory. Swapnil: If anyone asks me if I have ever seen an alien, it will remind me of you.

Thank you for making it so special for us! Adcresco: Your love and support for me made me a very confident person. The ups and downs we have been through brought us unity.

Rajat Gupta Mom dad- Thank you for all the unconditional love and support, I appreciate everything you have ever done for me and I don't think I will ever be able to repay you for the sacrifices you have made for me. Bhandari- You’re an insanely cool guy and someone I will always look up to. My senior year wouldn’t have been the same without you. PS: I’ll never forgive you for hogging the room in Goa. Mohit: Man, I don't even know where to begin. Thank you for always being there for me. I’m really gonna miss you, especially our deep talks in front of the heater and convincing you that Syma does like you. You are one of the most fun and interesting people I’ve ever met. Also thank you for teaching me how to play pool haha. Pandey: In the two years that I have known you, you have grown so much as a person and a friend (though others might beg to differ). I cannot imagine my time at Woodstock without you. I am really gonna miss your twisted sense of humor. ( yo you gotta stop with the mom jokes tho). Everything aside, you are a great friend and I’ll miss you a lot. Joseph: Josieeee... I'm so glad that we got close in 12th grade, oak with you this last semester was too much fun.

I am going to miss you a lot. Gupta: You are pretty smart, but definitely don’t show it, and despite all the stuff you say, I'm gonna miss having you around. Make sure to have fun these two years and bully Sindhoor a lot. Sindhoor: You are one of the chillest juniors out there and a very good sport. Enjoy the next two years and don’t let Gupta bully you. Love y’all and hope I’ll see you very soon.

Never change, I’m gonna miss you a lot. Mohit- I'm glad we're such good friends. Over the past year we've made so many good memories and I'm always gonna cherish them.

Help each other get better, and keep working hard. Younger grades- Work hard during your time at Woodstock but also remember to have fun.

Even though I should be the last person giving any advice, I still have one for all of you - “Lessons in life will be repeated until they are learned” - Frank Sonnenberg (Just so I don't get sent to honor council again) Woodstock It's been one hell of a ride. We out.
Mom & Dad:- I cannot thank you enough for what you have given me. For providing me this education, for sending me to this school called Woodstock which has been a really great experience. Teachers & Staff:- There are times when I felt that you guys did not get enough credit for what you guys do for us. There were also times that I would be mad at you guys for giving us so much work but overall, I love you guys and I will miss you all so much. I would not have so many memories and knowledge from Woodstock if it had not been for you guys as well. So thank you all and peace out. Dhrub, Ryan, Rohan, Anirudh, Carlos, Visakuo, Leo, Mark, Swapnil, Swastika, Mario, Pooja, William Raggett, Tala, Kiara, Muskan, Jalal, Kung, Garv, Abhidan, Rhea:- Where do I even begin, man? It feels like I’ve known you guys since forever. Ah, God, man it even hurts just to write this. I do not know how my Woodstock experience would have been without you guys. You guys are like the people who made it so entertaining. There were times when we fought and hated each other but I mean in the end, we were all closely connected. We did some stupid things together, all the countless times we went crazy, all the countless times we hung out, all the countless times we danced like crazy, all the countless times we made fun of each other. I just want to say that sometimes when we walk across a sea of rock we encounter a few gems along the way, and that is what you guys are for me. I’m gonna miss you guys so much, but hey, this is not the end for all of us, we’re gonna meet someday again. So, until then love you all and may God bless you all. Peace. Cross Country Team:- Oi, Don’t let me see you guys slack off once we’re gone (I’ll know). Man, I hated all those runs to be honest but running with you all was just too great that I could not quit, until senior year of course. But hey, you all its been fun running with you all and may you guys have a good future ahead off the road for you. Love you all and see ya around. Advisors and Advisees:- Again where do I begin? I just want to say that at the moment we just feel this overwhelming feeling of sadness. I can’t begin to wonder where I would be without you guys. You guys were the people who helped me during difficult times and were also the ones who made my Woodstock experience a lot of fun too. I really liked the many times we played different games whenever we had advisor night and to be honest, I could not wish for a better advisory. If we never cross paths again, I just want you all to know you guys were the best and I love you all. Peace and may we meet again. Grade 12:- I wish we all had more time and there was no obstacle like the coronavirus or this lockdown. To be honest, I wish I was in dorms when writing this. I know there have been times we have hated each other and fought a lot but to be honest, you guys were like a family to me. Now, all families ain’t perfect so I don’t expect this family to be. There were times I just hated some of your guts to be fully honest, but I feel right now none of that matters. You guys mean a lot to me and I could not wish for another grade like ours. So if we ever see each other again, let’s all hang out together again like Goa you know what I’m saying? Anyway, had a fun time in Woodstock, it’s been a good couple of years, gonna miss you all, see ya soon. Thank you, Woodstock, and May God Bless You. See ya around
MARIO I don’t think I should’ve written this at all, a will, that is. It’s like admitting to myself that this is the last time. Oh well, here goes nothing... Growing up, I watched and rewatched FRIENDS; it really is a great show! I think after a while, I started to idolise the dynamic all of them had with and between each other. I think that’s also why I’ll never forget Woodstock and the people I met here. I think I’ve created something a lot like the sitcom with the very people I spend my time with--I have my own little, tight-knit group of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Josh Posh, P-Shanks, Swastika, Swap, Tala, you guys know who you are! (I am told it is a “norm” of sorts to mention people’s names and have them in bold.) And when I felt somewhat blue, maybe a bit under the weather, or even when I felt worlds away from the rest of my grade, I knew I could always count on another group of individuals. Jalal, Garv, Kung, Suryansh, Jackson,
Keya, Will (Raggett), Swastik, Muhktar, Aditya, William Joseph, Yuvi Cheema, Samarvir, Vinayak Pandey, Palden, Rishabh, Zorawar. Y’all really took the edge off. Showed me a better time when I needed it. I
think none of us will ever forget the best of those times, but I gotta say: Jalal, take it easy, aight? Now, I think this should be the most important part of my will. I wish to recognise the people who’ve managed to significantly impact me and my character, effectively changing me through the course of our individual relationships, for better or for worse. I think I am the way I am because of you guys, and I think I’m quite happy with the result! Rhea, Swapnil, William Raggett and Jalal. Also, Rhea, I think I owe you an apology. I’m sorry, for everything.
Anyways, I’ve had a great time and kinda wish it wouldn’t stop. I’ll miss this...

R I Y A
Mumma Papa: I’m so thankful to have you as my parents and for everything you do for me. You’ve always been by side, letting me make my own decisions and helping me out throughout. I couldn’t ask for better, I love you and trust you with everything. Woodstock: Thank you for giving me everything you did. Syma: You were my first roommate and we were clueless then. Seeing that we’ve come so far is actually weird. But it’s the good weird, you know. Sudhu: You were literally my whole Woodstock life as a person. But you taught me that it’s not okay for it to be that way. You made me realize that I’ll be fine on my own. I love you and always will. Jiu: I hope you know that I’ll never stop bugging you because that’s my specialty and you’ve fully acknowledged it. Aarti: Thanks for being the best-first-friend I made at school. Always been in love w u and ur narcissism. Apart from that, you’re also the most adorbs, loving, gorgeous, caring, kind, passionate and so much more, jk, not gonna give u so much love (you’re basically the amaze to my balls, love u). ADITi: My boi, I love to see you growing old and becoming into the guy we all wanted you to be--tHeReALGanstA--and Imlovinit. To many more french nights coming along. No, but for real, I think you’re the actual conversation keeper and the best person to vent to. So, you be the real gangsta. Raya: Idk where to start bro, your butt cheeks or your flawlessly gorgeous skin or those big eyes. Just everything about you is pretty, both inside and out. From bsing with everyone to having a photoshoot out of nowhere. I love everything we do together. You simply make things fun. And not just that, you genuinely care. I will miss u bro. Jiwoni: You’re my favorite cute gal, and I genuinely love making fun of you. But Jiwon, I really love to come to you when I’m in trouble bro, you’re the real problem solver. Thanks for being the best granny evaa. I’ll always love you. GyuminGyung: Please don’t actually end up selling your kidneys. And if there comes a point you have to--don’t tell me about it. Just kidding bro. You know, you’re one of those people who fall under the category where they say--they show love through their actions. Every time we’re hungry, you will give your food, if, in a hyper kyumin mood, you’ll even offer to cook. Some facts: love to finish your water, ask you for work cause u a smartie and love you much. Jagya: Jagya man, you know I love you. And we’ve come such a long way. You’re my savior, thanks for always having my back homie. I love talking to you about random things and laughing. Also, this is when I want you to get the senior lounge reference when I was pointing at the singing gal ;). Knema: Snotty, I’ll really miss the times when you snored like a horse, slept talk and forgot to wake up for school. And thanks for being subtly soft with cute things you do for people you care about. They’re genuinely so sweet (one example if you’re wondering: chocolate for valentine’s day and the lil speech you gave cause I asked why we got em). Abhik: brooo, mannn, Goa rides were really lit and you are a very funny guy. I had a lot of fun with you. Zoramar: Hey listen, thanks for being the best baby ever. Like, for real, there’s no one better than you, in school or wherever. I’m just so glad we happened because they were really my happiest days. I know it’s gonna be hard being away but you don’t have to worry about anything babe. We got this man. It’s gonna be all good. Okay? I love you, always. Adcresco: I can’t believe we won’t be graduating together. I literally had everything thought out: the ceremony walk, getting our diplomas, standing on the ramp, probably crying. And guess what? It’s not happening. Well, I’m happy that I have memories with almost all of us. And obviously, I’m very sad about our last semester coming to an end like this. But I’m just hoping that we’ll probably figure something out and do our own grad or something. We’ve always been the smart grade, you know. All of you are very special to me and I really love you guys. Have fun guys because I already know y’all will do well.
G A U R I
Mama/Papa: You have always given me everything I want. However, I thought going
Mom/ Papa: Thank you for sending me to Woodstock even though it was a hard decision. Mumma, I’m very grateful for all the values and discipline you have imbibed in me. Papa, I look up to your work ethic and hard work. Thank you both of you for being the best role model and friend. Kabir Bhaiya: You have been a rock ever since I can remember. The very few times I have seen you low, it broke my heart. Whenever you are happy, even though you become so obnoxious and loud, you light up the entire house. Veere, Chunana loves you! Viren/Varun: I am so lucky to be the only sister in the family. I can never forget the things you both do for me. Thanks for being the most loving and fun cousins:) Jigya/ Tashi: We have been super close since the day we met and it’s been 4 years. I can never forget the sleepless nights and back massages. Jigya’s logical words and Tashi’s extra sensitive reactions have comforted me whenever I was low. We went through a lot together and took care of each other when we were not fine ourselves (lmao). Jigya it’s hard for you to say it but Tashi and I know you love us:) I will still give you both my daily kiss:) Priyansha: Since day 1! We have seen all phases of high school together, embarrassing, and important. All our inside jokes will still exist 20 years from now. Thank you for holding on. DFC for life. Kiara: Kiki I wish you came in my life a little earlier. Sitting under the sun after lunch is such a mood. DFC for life! Jia: My three international trips were crazy and so memorable because of you. I wish I could say that you were my first roommate lol. Thank you for being there! Arina/ Siddharth: Chem class gang gang! I actually enjoyed being the third best student in that class and Arina and I will forever be mad about Siddharth being good at chemistry. Doma’s was too fun ngl. Adudee: Our friendship has been pretty thicc since 9th grade and it will remain that way. I have and will always stand by you. Nitya/ Diva/ Muskaan/ Tsering: I love you guys. It was short and sweet but incomplete. Aviva/ Veer: I love both of you, even though you both are loud together. Thank you for the memories. I actually miss us:’) Balani: I am so grateful for Badminton, Drama, Spanish and, GAIL because I got to spend time with you! Thank you for being the little sister I don’t have:) Nupur/ Janvi/ Amani/ Savya/ Aaliya: DHOTI, thank you for being the best juniors. I appreciate your friendship with each other and us! Your love for us makes it even harder to leave this place. Amer/ Simon/ Warris: You guys made GAIL unforgettable. RIP promise ring. Josiee: Writing this is harder than I thought. I admire how you uplift me and people around you. Thank you for so many smiles and all this “glow” on my face. Each day with you is the new best day. Our time at WS is ending, but at least it happened. Dheer/Bhatia: Thank you for being a significant part of my WS life. Whenever I look back you both have always been there, either making me laugh and having fun or supporting and trying to have deep talks. Your trio is too special to me. I’ll miss you guys. Rajat: I think it’s high time we accept that our friendship is genuinely amazing. I had the time of my life trying to bother you. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I hope you get all the happiness that you deserve. Shamu/ Cheema: You both piss me off too much, but tangerine treats are really fun! khush raho. Mrs. Ronita: Thank you for being a second mother! Mr. Prateek/ Mr. Puri: Indian history trip was the highlight because of you both. Lastly, Adcresco: I guess it ends here. I can not “get over it”. I can’t ask for a better class to walk out and enter the real world with. Love each one of you!
away from home was too much to ask for but you still gave it to me and couldn’t have asked for more supporting parents. I am who I am because of you both! Thank you soo much for everything you have done for me<3 Sabstt: You have always done everything in your power just to make sure I live my life to the fullest. You have stood up for me for everything, be it fights with parents or my nonsensical needs. I’m so glad I can be open with you now and we are closer. Let’s continue to have this special bond! Mrs Peters: You have literally been my mother at Woodstock and I cannot thank you enough for always telling me what the right thing to do was and taking care of me like I was your own daughter. You are the most loving and caring person ever, I’m so glad that I could rely on you for comfort at all times. Mr./Mrs. Seth: You are the best advisor anyone could ever ask for. I am sorry for all the troubles I have given you! You both have genuinely been like our advisor groups counselor and guiding us to the right path. Your jokes are too funny and please don’t ever stop making them. Joanna: I do not even need to tell you how much love and respect I have for you, you know it. I can easily say that you have been my rock, my human version of a personal diary and the biggest influence on my personality. Thank you for everything. I am gonna stick by you no matter what. Suhana/Tashi: Our trio can never get boring. Be it 3am/pm, Tashi’s you would always be full of emotions and Suhana you would give me back massages while the three of us are figuring out solutions to our problems. I love it and I am going to miss it! Harsh ShyamDASANI: we have gone through so much together. You have gained way too much of my trust. I know if I ever murder someone, you will help me out. I know I have given you a lot of crap for no reason and I am really sorry for that, genuinely. I am just so grateful for you. You have helped me through everything. Our friendship is mostly fights and some friendly times but it’s worth it. We both know the appreciation we hold for each other. Cheema: You are my family away from home. Coffee, long long way, all nighter calls, annoying everyone in the senior lounge and the list goes on and on. Only you take me to buzz when I am craving gol gappe or butter chicken. I am my true self in front of you and there are no judgements made from you. My Bastie. You are stuck with me for life. We still have so many things to do and don’t worry we have a lifetime to do them. Gungun: my cousin, whenever we are talking to each other, all we need is some coffee, a wooden bench and mild sunlight and we could go on forever. I love it when teachers come up to us to ask if we have any work other than gossiping. You are one of the most genuine people I know of and please don’t change that. You were one of my friends and you have stuck by. See you in Boston and let’s party hard! Abhick: you can really uplift people’s mood. I really enjoy spending time with you. From you magically guessing my birthday right to me owing you a treat for your birthday, you have been a very positive person to be around. I owe you a treat and I haven’t forgotten. I will be notty and you will just have to deal with it. Let’s take more chakkar walks together!! Tanwar: you are such a cutie!! I love having deep conversations with you because of how understanding you are. Only you can literally tell from my face if I am fine or not and I really appreciate you for that. I’m really gonna miss you tainghwar. Dhoti: Aviva, you are literally so thoughtful towards others and never hurt anyone; Nupur, you are so mature and can solve any problem I am having; Janvi, your ambitions are so big and do not let anything come in the way of that; Amani, you are so loving and fun to hangout with, you are literally my little big bully; Savya, you definitely are more responsible (take more precautions) than the other, please teach them; Aali, definitely the nicest and most sane of the lot, please put some brains in the others also. All of you together have given me so many crazy memories that I will not forget. I have taken so much risk with you guys!! 10 throughout the night! Rajat: you have been such an amazing friend, I will miss jamming out to sad songs with you and I would really not complain about my love life with anyone else! Armaan: you are such a crazy person! I really like hanging out with you, you are so positive and fun to be with. Let’s go on more adventures like Dharamshala while listening to Rock On! Shivaansh: don’t worry! Russians, Germans, Britishers, Aussies, Canadians, as many and whoever. So excited for college! Archi: I wish we started talking earlier but you are one of the nicest people I’ve met. Also, one of the craziest and kinkiest. Always be a good Christian girl. Loombi: you are one of a kind, you have taught me how to be a strong individual and not care about what bullcrap others are saying. Thank you and TaeKook for life. Nitya: we have had our ups and downs but thank you because you have definitely made an impact on my Woodstock life. Even if we are drifting apart I will not forget our early years at WS together. Priyansha: haii, my sweetie, you are highkey and so not change that even if everyone is against it, including me. Our time as roommates was soo much fun! Arina: you have been my life savior so many times and no number of thank you’s is enough but still a big THANK YOU<3 Veer: arre Shalu, what is happening right now? I’ve heard ki yeh sab is like for graduation. You hold a special place in my heart and I really will miss you. Kayan: okay so now we are graduating so we should maybe actually start acting like we are friends. Jkjk you are a mad person, stay the same. Rhea: you will forever be my lovely small friend! Kiara: I really wish we could have spent more time together but I am glad that we got to have an amazing last few months together! Mahima: you are like my little sister, even though you give me advice most of the time. You are so mature for your age and I know it will take you a long way. Start making up your mind about your options of ****. I will come and visit you every chance I get to. Thanks for letting me be like your family! HAWAII ADDA: it amazes me how I could find this one particular group of friends where I could totally be the craziest version of myself and not be insecure because others are no less. Aarti: the most insane smartest person I know; Gauri: sass overload but will stand up for you like no one else; Aditi: the best person to get advice from and secretly full of emotions; Kyumin: the most hardworking person, however, when the nerd inside you leaves, you become wild! Kohli: the softest and most spontaneous one. Jiwon: brobrobro I love how unbothered you are to other people’s opinions and I admire that about you a lot. Knema: you are so sweet and considerate, we shall always fail physics together bro. Adcresco: It is sad that we did not get the ending we wanted but you all know the number of obstacles we have come across over the years and we somehow manage to cross them together. So let’s see how we come across this one and I really think it will be different but amazing! Congratulations everyone:) Woodstock: Thanks for this life changing experience!

Mommy & Daddy: Thank you for sending me to Woodstock. I know that it was very difficult to send me and Lukas there, and I am sad that you won’t be able to see the culmination of your hard work in attending my graduation. I won’t let this privilege and opportunity you have given to me go to waste; I will succeed and become someone you can be proud of. Lukas: Thanks for always being there for me ever since the beginning. It was just the two of us in the beginning, and we only had each other to rely on. You’re the best big bro I could’ve ever asked for. No matter where you go from now on, just know that you can always rely on me. I’ll always be there. Mark: Idk if I still somehow owe you money from the pizza at Ibis, but I’m grateful I got to know you then. You’ve shown me a lot of new things and gave me so many new games and hobbies. I know it’s weird to say, but you really influenced who I am today. Keep in touch (or try to not get yoinked by shillong wifi), and say hi to RJ and Justin for me. I’ll pay for the pizza through the Dota market. Sunggon: You’ve been there for me through thick and thin, and I think I gave you depression as well. You were always the guy I went to for advice, and you always helped me out (even though you probably knew jack about dating). One day you too will get a girlfriend. Abiral: Now that I think of it, I think I really messed you up. I got you into League, I made you watch anime, and you started to slack off. And as a result, I also slacked off, and we both got cucked in 12th grade. Looks like hood naruto during history class was a mistake after all. Anyways, keep in touch through the meme trade you simp. Amul, Won, Perm, Yongbean, Giju, Rigpea: You guys had to put up with me when I’m annoying, angry, or depressed, and I’m really grateful for it. Amul, I’ll see you in Japan someday, even though I got rejected from uni. Won, I’ll come to Korea again and stay at your house again. Perm, I’ll see you here I guess lmao. Yongbean, I’ll see you in comp sci. Giju, don’t get too hardstuck, I’ll still remember you as the Pokemon Biologist. Either way, I’ll see y’all in League I guess. Dhrub, Ryan, Josh, Anirudh, Rohan, Vikentiy, Swapnil: Thanks for keeping me in check in Goa. Next time I won’t “click” no more. Anyways, you guys have always been there for me, all the way since WeFut and Agario. Hope you guys remember all the dumb things we did, from Abhidannan, to Bhagat Boiz, to DnD. Keep in touch! Saahir, Chittish, Kayan: You guys gave me a lot of good advice, and now I’ve really grown as a person from it. I have a lot of experience now, so just watch me. Samji & Tanwar: Film class was too damn lit cuz of you guys. Diss track better come out. Rishabh: Sorry I quit AV, but I’ll never forget the bench we painted with Daniel, the walk down, and the other things we did in the booth. Palden, Batra, Willy Jo: That night was lit. If my lung collapses in the future I’ll blame Batra. Panupak: Don’t die of cancer before graduating. Radha, Minjae: You guys gave nice advice. Although you look down on me too much maybe. Kittapa: We all graduated, so we can meet more often now. Don’t be too lonely without me or Yongbean helping you with comp sci.
하나님: 드디어 끝이에요. 힘들고 당신을 원망하기까지도 했지만, 당신이 없었다면 저는 이미 오래전부터 멈춰있었겠죠. 길이 보이지 않을때 저를 지켜주셔서, 힘들어도 저를 여기까지 이끌어 주셔서, 제가 13년이 라는 시간을 인도에 잘, 무사히 보내게 해주셔서 감사합니다. 엄빠: 거의 한 13년동안 인도에 살면서 힘든 일이 수 없이 많았지만 그 만큼 극복한 것도 많았던 그런 13년 인생을 살아온것 같애. 내가 그 만큼 부정 했던 인도를 이제 떠나려 하니 많이 허전하네…^^ 여태것 나를 보듬어주셔서 너무 감사하고 또 그 만큼 속 을 썩여서 미안해요. 엄마와 아빠가 있었기에 나도 그 만큼 버텼던것 같아요. 아들은 이런 가정에 태어난 게 기적이고, 너무나 큰 행운일꺼야. 앞으로도 사랑과 기도로 아들을 지켜줘요 ㅋㅋ 우리동생: One thing I feeling a lot is that I am very sorry my sister. Surely there are thousands and thousands of better brothers out there who could care 123456789 times better than I did. I am sorry for that :( But you are the one of many thousands and thousands to still think of me as a brother and love me the way I am. I am sorry to disappoint to countless number of times, but perhaps this was my best I could give (yeah, not that great isn’t it) .Finally, enjoy your last senior year and do whatever you want. Like I told you that night, you deserve to do anything you want to do, and you are capable of doing so many woderful things. Oppa always believes in you sister and he loves you (actually) <3 그리고 막둥이 폴: 잘 먹고 잘 자고 잘 노는걸 많이 연 습하렴 ㅎ 혹여나 우드스탁에 온다면 그 많은 것들을 못 누리게 될수도 있으니까 ㅎㅎ 형아 심부름 시키는 거 들어줘서 고맙다 폴 <3 Seongmin, Seongchan, Sunkwan: 잘 지내고, 12학년 잘 보내라. 너네들은 꼭 졸 업하도록 해 ㅠ 시목이, 서래: 1년동안 우드스탁에서 잘 지냈니? 내가 잘 챙겨주지 못해서 미안하다 ㅋㅋ ㅋㅠ 그래도 이 못난 선배와는 달리 너네들은 착하니까 폴이 오면 잘 돌봐줘 ㅎㅎ Jigmet, Jinju: Thank you guys for being such a good friend with my sister and also working reaaaallly hard to bring me and my sister closer (especially Jigmet). Have fun in senior year and I’ll be there for your grad since I didn’t have mine (lol Yongbean, Won, MemeJae: 칭구들아, 곁에 있어줘서 고맙다 ^^ 니네들 덕분에 안심심한 날이 없었다 아주. 용반이 수학 (숙제) 도와줘서 고맙고, 나를 케어해줘서 고맙당 (그 포차에서..). 원양아, 마지막 날에 전화 받아줘서 고맙다 임뫄, 한쿡 가면 너네 집에 또 놀러갈께 ㅎ. MemeJae, 내가 항상 고민거리를 갖고 와도, 들 어주고 위로해줘서 고맙다ㅏㅏand thanks for the B’day cake :)) Perm, Leo, Win, Abiral, Mark, Dhrub, Amul, Kayan: Thanks for being wonderful league friends you fools. It was really nice spending times with you all and I’ll miss you tons :( Leo, I miss those days when I got you tilted over a PKMN battle. Win, it was nice to play that one last piano with you over there man haha. (S)Perm, thanks and sorry for hearing out my troubles like 24/7 back in those days. It was nice staying in your house (lol) and playing league with you all and gtg ttyl. Abiral, stop asking for ganks 24/7. Kayan, why are you so matured Mehta. I’m sorry for being lazy in Mumbai (BOM Waddup) Amul, I miss those days being called Saaanggon from you m8. Dhrub, you are better than ryan. Mark, stop carrying Abiral in 5v5 Rigpea: I was really, really fortunate enough to meet a friend that I could call a brother. I’ll miss you a lot and keep being a handsome Momo :D Kittapa: It sucks that you left a year early and Saturday Night Dinner was never the same since you left :( I had so many memorable times with you and I was glad that I could see you in Thailand and keep in touch time to time! Radha: stop being a work out addict (haha). Thanks for hearing out my concerns and it was real fun to have a friend like you. I’ll miss you and I hope I can see you soon somehow (like you said, soon) (You still owe me a coffee in tangerine btw haha) Giju Kim: 7학년 때부터 같이 달려온 친구야, 6년동안 이런저런 일 이 많았지만 많이 고맙고 또 많이 미안하다. 나 같은 놈을 친구로 두고, 사람으로 만들어줘서 고맙다 ㅎ (근 데 너 브론즈 실화냐 ㅋㅋ)

하나님 아버지 감사합니다. 저에게 큰 용기와 많은 지혜를 주심에 감사드립니다, Giju: 나는 네가 참 자랑스럽다. 앞으로도 너 자신을 믿으며 여태껏 해왔던 것처럼 조금만 더 수고하자. 넘어져도 괜찮다, 자신있게 살자, 가족: 나를 믿어주고 응원해준 것에 대하여 감사하고 사랑합니다, Peter’s advisor: I am sure there isn’t a better advisor group than ours, thank you for being the best one, Perm: Thanks for staying the same, I’m pretty sure you will understand what I really mean in that short sentence, love you bro, Nandu: Thank you for making me an artist, Mr. Nandu, you are the best artist I know, Mr. Kailash: I can’t stop laughing in your class, the best teacher, (I’m getting a spider web on my shoulder) LoL passage: best passage ever, I’ll miss all the memories with you all, not just the passage but since 7th grade.

Mum & Dad- Every once in a while, you guys would ask me whether sending us to Woodstock was the right choice. Today, I can proudly say that it was. Woodstock was the right choice. It always was and always will be. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you. Because of all your hard work and sacrifices, you guys have given me the happiest time of my life. I am forever grateful for everything you did for me. I will make you guys proud. Koon- Although you might be more annoying, not as good looking, not as smart, not as funny, and most importantly not as tall as me, you are still my other half. Going to college without you is gonna be pretty weird and not gonna lie, I’ll probably miss you once in a while, so you better take good care of yourself so that mum and dad are not worried about you. Don’t stress out too much about work, there are other things to stress out about. lol for the first time I’m giving you advice like a big brother. Anyways I’m taking up too much space writing you this cringy letter so I’ll end it here. Take care. Sunggon- Even though sometimes I made fun of you for being depressed and even became annoyed at your complaints, having you as my friend throughout all these years was undoubtedly one of the best things that happened to me. I couldn’t have survived these past 6 years without you and I am so grateful to have you as my friend. I’ve never met someone who was as selfless and kind as you. Don’t let small things bring you down and stay optimistic. I’ll see you again soon. Thank you for everything and gtg ttyl <3. Giju- Ay waddup it’s finally your turn. Not many people know it but you’re actually a really gentle person on the inside. You might act all quiet when you’re in front of other people but you take care of those who are close to you like family and I really respect that. You’re one of the brightest and funniest people I’ve ever met so stop trying to act all cool and charismatic in front of other people bruh it doesn’t suit you lol. Anyways I’ll see you in UK and when you get famous with your clothing brand you can send me some clothes you know what I’m sayin, I’ll model them for you lololol. Love you brother. Ps. I’m still the better jungler btw. Won, Amul, Kayan, Leo, Abiral, Yongbean, Win, Rigpea, Mark- You guys have made my WS life so memorable and I’m so thankful to each one of you. I’ll see you guys again for sure. (Won) You’re the most fun to hit and tickle because your reaction is so funny.

When my journey began in July 2014, I was clueless and flailing through life without any purpose. I am truly grateful for every opportunity and every edifying moment that has allowed me to grow intellectually. I can happily say that the past six years have been truly the best. Woodstock has provided me with a truly unique experience where I have made some of the most astounding memories that I will treasure for the rest of my life. I know I have had my ups and downs with some of my fellow peers lately, and I hoped we could have parted ways differently, nonetheless, I wish everyone the best of luck as we all plod on through our future. Thank you Adcresco, and thank you Woodstock. You will always be in my heart.

When we first walked through the gates of Woodstock with you by our side, the day you completed this chapter of your life seemed so far in the future it was hard to visualize. And now, as you stand at the precipice of yet another adventure, we are even prouder of you, your achievements, big and small, and the lessons you have learned from setbacks along the way. From a very young age, you have been a pioneer of sorts, be it your curiosity to explore cuisines from lands far away, or your avid consumption of YouTube content. You continued working in the same role in your years at Woodstock, diving into your academic and co-curricular activities with gusto. Even though we have treated you like the baby of the family, in many ways you are stronger and wiser than us all. Once you make a decision or set a goal for yourself, you pursue it with an enthusiasm which is wise beyond your years, and a work ethic that will see you through the most difficult situations in the years ahead. In your years at Woodstock, you have grown into a loving son and brother, loyal friend, and an upstanding citizen. It makes us proud to be part of your journey, and may there be many more celebrations and achievements in your life. All our love, Dad, Mom, and Didi
Love Mom & Dad

Dear Frizia, From that day till date you have primarily been a reason for hope and happiness, courage and conviction, blossoms and blessings. You are the core of our little family of four. With you and of course your little brother Fazil, we have embarked upon countless endevours for a better tomorrow, some attained, other still at a distance but the journey continues together immaterial of success or failure holding each other together. Now, after graduation from Woodstock the strength of dreams in your wings will take you further and higher but inspite of the desired flight you will always be a ‘Bundle of Joy’ for us as parents and a friend, philosopher and guide to your little brother. My Child, Always remember, “Your presence in the family makes all the difference.” May the Almighty be always on your side in your journey forward to guide, protect and bless you. ‘Alhamdulillah’ for Everything. ****

Our Dearest Swastika, Congratulations! As you complete the last chapter of school and move to college, we remember your first day at preschool when you happily waved us goodbye. From that day onwards, we have watched you grow into an independent, determined, sensitive, and intelligent young girl. We hope that you continue to pursue your dreams with dedication and courage. Don’t give up and forget your roots when challenges come your way, instead listen to your heart and focus on your goals as you always do. Remember that no matter where you go or how successful you become, never lose faith in God. It is His blessings that have brought you to Woodstock and His grace that will guide you to your future goals. Be humble and sincere. Be honest with yourself and others. Remember to help those in need and give back to those who helped. And, the best advice from your big bro (as I am smarter with four more years of experience) is to indulge in creating memories with your school friends before you all head your own ways. Remember that we are always there and only a call away. Don’t forget to spend time with us (and Catan). We love you from the bottom of our hearts and wish you all the best in your future endeavours. You’ll always be our little Swasti. Loads of love, Your Mom, Dad & Big Brother.
