Every year brings with it an array of memories, experiences and interests. As we head into a new year, Centennial students look back on what stood out to them in 2011.
Students were asked what their favorite movies, music, television shows, celebrity weddings and news stories of 2011 were. Senior Pamela Paet picks Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 as her favorite movie, and her choice for best music is Foster the People. When asked about her favorite TV show, she replied, “SpongeBob forever”. The news story that made the greatest impression on her was former Libyan president Muammar Gaddafi‘s death.
Junior Hayne Ryu says that the new Sherlock Holmes movie was her favorite flick of the year, with the television show “Sherlock” as her pick for that category. Her choice for best music is Gotye, and the best celebrity wedding was Kim Kardashian’s. The news story that stood out to her was the death of former Korean dictator, Kim Jong Il.
Senior Genever Judule thinks Twilight wins best movie of 2011, and her choice for best music is the song “The Best Think I Never Had” by Beyonce. Her favorite show was “How I Met Your Mother”.
Students not only have the past to look back on, but also the future to look forward to. When asked what she is anticipating most about this year, Paet said, “I’m really excited about visiting the Philippines this summer.” Senior Morgan Bailey is looking forward to “getting out of high school, going to college, and starting my life”, while Senior Ester Han says, “I look forward to the end of the world in 2012.”
Another year has gone, and another set of memories and experiences has been made by students to carry with them for the rest of their lives. As they reflect, they also have the opportunity to look towards what is to come. Here’s to hoping the new year will bring with it even more memorable treasures for them to keep.
