I never thought senior year would turn into the time paradox it was, moving slowly yet quickly at the same time.

There have been many other teachers, but some of the first to come to mind are Ms. Briseno and Mrs. Larkin. Ms. Briseno, I don’t know if you realize this, but you taught me how to be myself. That it’s okay and totally cool to be different and unique. Mrs. Larkin, I think we can both agree I struggled in your class this year, but you taught me to weather the storm and keep on going. To Mr. Doerr and Mr. Fincher, both of you have pushed me past my limits and reach new heights I didn’t think were possible for me. Even though I may not become a professional trumpeter or a high time journalist for the New York Times, I have learned valuable lessons from you that I will forever carry with me. To my parents, of course. You have always been my best friends, and always been around for me. I love you greatly and I couldn’t have asked for better parents.

Finally to my friends, you have been great. New and old, I’m so thankful for the friends I had this year. Especially Katie Medina, I would walk to the end of the world for you. Even though I will be moving out of Austin, I’ll always be here for you and love you. Ethan Morales, thank you for always putting a smile on my face, even on my darkest days. I’ll miss your crazy shenanigans and fun loving personality. To my trumpet section, I am so proud of all of you. You’ve all come a long way, and I love you with my whole heart. To everyone who worked on the newspaper this year, I adore you all. Web, print, multi- media, whatever, thank you.
Sadly I’m running out of space so I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from, you guess it, Harry Potter.
