SENIOR YEAR BUCKET LIST
“Have as much fun as I can.”
“Make as many happy memories as possible.”
“Figure out where I want to go to college.”
SOMETHING MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU:
“I have an unhealthy obsession with One Direction, and I still have hope that they’re going to get back together.”
YOUR BEST QUALITY AND WHY?
“I love to take care of people and make other people happy. Making other people happy never fails to make me feel good and make me feel like I have accomplished something!”
YOUR GREATEST FEAR AND WHY?
“My biggest fear is being alone in an unfamiliar place. I can be alone for a few hours, which is totally fine, and be by myself, but the thought of being lost in a random place terrifies me.”
FAVORITE STRATFORD MEMORY?
“One of my favorite memories would have to be sixth grade, Halloween Mr. Lawson and my entire history class scared me so badly I had to go hide in the bathroom for the rest of class. I didn’t think it was funny at all then, but looking back on it, I think it’s really funny.”
MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT AT SCHOOL?
“I don’t even know where to begin with this one. I embarrass myself a lot.”
FAVORITE RESTAURANT AND WHY?
“My favorite restaurant is always changing, but recently I’ve been on a Moe’s kick, so right now it’s Moe’s.”
FAVORITE SEASON AND WHY?
“I like summer because there we get a lot of freedom, but I think fall would be a close second because of the weather.”
FAVORITE SOCIAL MEDIA AND WHY?
“I would have to say Instagram because it covers all of the bases. You can ‘Snapchat’ on Instagram, you can find tik toks on Instagram, and it feels like Facebook but with more on there.”
FAVORITE THING TO WEAR AND WHY?
“I like to wear shorts and a t-shirt, but if I’m dressing up I like a good pair of jeans and a cute top.”
MORNING OR NIGHT PERSON AND WHY?
“I would have to say a morning person because I like to go to bed as early as possible. I’m usually asleep before 11, on school nights.”
WHAT MAKES YOU SMILE AND WHY?
“I would have to say my family and my best friends. They always make me laugh and pick me up when I am sad.”
WHAT ANNOYS YOU MOST AND WHY?
“My biggest pet peeves have to do with eating habits. Nothing makes me angrier than people who chew their food and talk at the same time. YUCK! I do not want to see your food! Also, I don’t like smacking. The sound irks me.”
IF YOU COULD DEVELOP A VACCINE AGAINST ANYTHING, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
“Right now, I’d say COVID because it ruins everything, but to be broader I’d say any sort of illness because no one likes to be sick regardless of the illness.”
“Treat People With Kindness – Harry Styles”
