Making Memories: Seniors

IMG_2264Some say that senior year provides the best memories, and they could be right. With all the cool activities that we get to take a part of, there’s no wonder.

One of the coolest things that us seniors have done this year is senior survival. And trust me, we brought track bountiful memories from the trip.

A personal memory that I brought back was shared with all the girls in my tent. See, I was the only nature-oriented person in our tent, and I purposefully chose these girls to share my tent with me (because, let’s be honest, things are just more interesting that way).

So I tented with Christelle, Cyan, Esther, Loree, and Mariah. Out of all of us in my tent Mariah was the one most looking forward to going home, and trust me, she expressed this many times during the week. Everyday she woke up and announced how many days were left as her first words for the day. Each night she would go to bed quickly in hopes that tomorrow would come sooner to leave sooner. It was for this reason that there was never a dull moment in my tent. Not to mention all the inside jokes and memories we came up with (like green bean, Mariah trying to open the rock, the Channels, and many more).

Some other memories that were made included when Tristan was cutting up the honeydew and everyone started calling him Honeydew Man. How that came about I have no clue, but we were always shouting his name in a Chew-chew type manner. It was odd, but fun to say the least.

There was also when we all decided to swim in the river and Cyan almost got swept downstream. It was hilarious (and don’t worry, she was safe and laughing the whole time, as well as the fact that she is perfectly skilled in saving herself).

Of course there were all the serious moments when we sat around campfires and sang songs we barely knew (but we sang them perfectly). The Holy Spirit was really at work around those campfires, and even the rest of the week.

We’ve also made other memories at school like in Multicultural History were Tristan would always put trap music to his presentations (those were always entertaining).

There’s also all the fangirling from Cyan and Loree about EXO and SEVENTEEN, two really popular K-pop boy groups.


Do you have any memories from your senior year that stick with you? Hilarious things you’ve never been able to forget from high school?


About Sabrina N. Mapes

There are only so many people who can say they're fans of pirates, superheroes, and violin pop; I am one of them. Some would describe me as spontaneous, others a spazz, and some a caffeine addict... that last one is no longer true.
