2024 is here. Freshman have finally adjusted to Slope, Seniors are ready to graduate, and the construction keeps going. For many students this may mean a fresh journal, or simply adjusting to writing ‘24 for the date.

In Senior Jacob Knight’s words, “2024 is looking scrumptious.” Knight’s 2024 will be compiled with new chapters and experiences. Knight is in the second semester of his senior year; his future is on the brink: college, which means leaving Sunnyslope and finding a place to meet “new homies.” Although Knight is unsure where he will go to college, he said, “Sunnyslope will get a lot less cool without me here this year…wherever I go to college will become significantly cooler.” While college is exciting, Knight is looking forward to his trip to Japan as well. Entering the new year, Knight has a list of goals to achieve: this includes: “how to juggle, backflip, love, do CPR, freestyle, raise an eyebrow like a demon, and become a successful businessman.”

Junior Sophia Pina loves to develop “little skills;” in 2024, she wants to learn how to dribble a soccer ball in the air, achieve expert-plus mode on Beastsaber, seamlessly sight-read violin music, and master calisthenics basics. While this list of “little skills” is impressive, Pina’s goals for the new year include creating her own brand and business, and earning a scholarship during her senior year. With so much to accomplish, she also has so much to look forward to: “sunset drives, picnics with friends, and writing my personal statement[for college applications]” On top of that, Pina said, “I’m excited to see how much fun I’ll have on the Costa Rica trip this summer and how that will change my life.” While Pina works to meet her goals, she predicts that the world will also make a shift away from technology: “once people realize how easily it is to be swayed by that power, I think people will be more drawn to living in the present moment.”

In 2024, Sophomore Zora Mitchell is creating positive changes in her habits, looking forward to new accomplishments and the freedom that accompanies them. Mitchell is hoping to get her drivers license and a new job: “I can’t wait to be able to drive around this summer with my friends… I’m looking forward to summer in general…I’m switching jobs to somewhere that is hopefully better for me and more flexible.” In the new year, setting attainable goals is important and can be equally exciting, Mitchell wants to learn how to curl her hair. She said, “ I always make my friends do it, but I should probably know how to do it as well.” In 2024, Mitchell predicts that change is approaching, especially in women’s sports: “I think that more viewers will come to the world of women’s sports, and I’m excited.”

Jumping into 2024, Freshman Cash Adkins hopes that 2024 “will be a more positive and uplifting year.” With this Adkins will work to improve in school and in sports: “I hope to get my first D1 offer for long snapping” and he hopes to earn better grades. Along his path of self-improvement, Adkins also wants to learn how to be a better cook. On a greater scale, with construction and consistent change, he said, “Sunnyslope will only get better in every way.” Outside of Sunnyslope, Adkins has a lot to look forward to this year, such new movies and music. Adkins predicts that “Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will get back together.”
