Best Moments of 2015
Going to the cherub concert was one of my favorite moments this year because I went with my best friend and we met the lead singer after the concert. I bought a record and he signed it for me. It was a super fun night!!
On Halloween, a bunch of the Thespians put on a Haunted House at Will Fletcher's house. There was something so satisfying about scaring kids and making their parents literally pee themselves. I got to be a psychotic killer clown with Yoni Kruvi and Lawrynce Cecio. I'm deathly afraid of clowns, and only agreed to be the clown so none of the other Thespians could scare me.
“The Color Run! We ran at the Qualcomm stadium and then went to the mini concert after!! There was tons of people and color!!! Since it was my first time doing the color run, I didn’t know what to expect! There was tons of people and color!!! Even though I had color in my hair for the next week, it was totally worth it”
The best thing that happened this year for me was getting to play in the first ComedySportz game of the year, which was also my first game that I got to play in at SDA. It was so much fun and the audience was so energetic and loud! Blue team for the win!
The best day of 2015 for me was playing Battle of the Bands with my friends as Doodlebob because we had the privilege of playing in front of all of our friends who supported us until the end and gave a great crowd full of energy.
My favorite moment of the year was when my hard work paid off when I broke the school record for pole vaulting by a foot. This was my favorite moment because the previous school record was 8’6 and I jumped 9’6, completely one foot higher than the old record.
My trip to Europe over spring break was definitely my most memorable moment of 2015. We stopped at this beautiful mountainside and river in Killarney, Ireland to capture this photo. I’m so thankful for all the friendships and memories made that I’ll always cherish.
I went to Iceland and Scotland this summer. In Scotland we did a lot of hiking and visiting castles, and in Iceland we visited a lot of glaciers and walked around Reykjavík and the hot springs. In Iceland the language was so different and the things they ate and what they wore and their entire way of thinking about the world was completely different than ours—they’re very environmentally-based...
I went to New York for a month and stayed at two different conservatory programs and lived in college dorms. We had free hour lunch to explore then acting. We saw a Broadway show, American In Paris, walked the Brooklyn bridge, went to the natural history museum, and the 9/11 memorial.
My favorite moment of 2015 was probably my birthday when I went surfing on my new board and just had a mellow dinner with some of my close friends, just laughing and having a good time with them. It was just really cool how stoked everyone was cheering each other on and it was just a happy sunny day.
My most memorable moment from 2015 was going to the Kaboo Concert in Del Mar. It was my most memorable experience because I got to see a lot of cool artwork, meet new people, and dance to good music. I saw some interesting people that worked there dressed in colorful costumes and makeup. They were dancing around acting like butterflies, so I thought it would be cool to take a picture with them.
This summer I spent two months in Canada with my older brothers. We spent a month in the Gulf Islands salmon fishing, and we spent a week backpacking on the North Coast Trail, and the rest of the time gunkholing in the San Juans. Gunkholing is bouncing from island to island; we were doing it on a canoe.

My favorite moment was when I went to Dubai this June with my family. It was a great experience to get to know the culture and meet new people. I went to the Burj Khalifa and this old trading market. I saw with dolphins and we rode on camels and it was just an awesome experience to live in a foreign country for a little while. My family and I mainly stayed in the Dubai area for the two weeks we spent...
The best moment of my year this year was the Twenty One Pilots concert. Towards the end of the concert, Tyler, who’s the singer, was on the stage, but when a song [ended]... the lights turned off. He was on the roof of one of the concession stands… Other people started running, but I was so close, probably like ten feet away from him. Then he sang the song from there and they put a big light back...

One of my favorite moments of 2015 was going to Cabo with my bestest friend, Natalie. We had fabulous mango, saw crazy fish and got more mosquito bites than I could count. Natalie had to put mosquito cream on me every night.
My favorite moment of 2015 was the last night of Camp Gordy. For those of you who don’t know, Camp Gordy is an infamous cross country camp led by our fearless coach, Gordy Haskett. The last night, after we had conquered the majority of our planned runs, we were able to relax. We lay out in our sleeping bags and took in the perfect view of a meteor shower. Countless shooting stars passed by, but I...
It was the Neighborhood concert at the House of Blues on a Wednesday and we had a minimum day. The opening act, Bad Suns, were performing and the main guy jumped onto a barrier thing to interact with the crowd and since we were only three people back I touched his hand and it was dripping with sweat and it was pretty gross but it was still cool. When they started performing we kept getting pushed to...
I would definitely have to say at the beginning of the year when I found rock climbing [was my best moment] because it was a way for me to express myself through athletic activity while also being in the outdoors, being with people, collaborating with others, and trying to find my own style through the climb. In a way I kind of found myself and my passion through the sport.
I went to a concert back in September and it was one of my favorite bands opening for another one of my favorite bands. The opening band [LANY] wasn’t very big, so I was really the only person singing their songs, so the lead singer [Paul Klein] took my phone on stage, and then he tweeted me about it the next day. I thought that was the last I’d hear of it, but then one month later, I went to their...
I left to go on a trip to Europe mostly to see my aunt get married but we also went to Germany and saw a lollapalooza, which was a really cool. I saw a lot of the bands I like to listen to like Glass Animals, Hot Chip, Tame Impala and Brand New. I'm pretty sure there was 50,000 people there and there were obviously lots of Germans there, but also, there was a lot of traveling Australians. Me and my...
