After a long, tiring week of school work, everybody is just ready to leave on Friday. When the 3:00 p.m. bell strikes, Juniors and Seniors pile up in their cars and head out, jamming to their favorite songs and ready to start their weekend plans. All social media will be buzzing with posts and messages that are filled with emojis.

 

“Catch me in my 2014 Black Sienna Minivan,” said Brandy Truong, senior. “I can haul everybody!”

 

Truong listens to “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri while debating if she wants to watch ‘High School Musical 3’ or ‘Grease’ for the 5th time while heading home.

“I spend my weekend staying at home and cuddling with my sweet, baby, Corgi, Gatsby and binge watching Netflix.”

By Sunday, a new post on Instagram will be uploaded to show how Truong expresses herself.

 

“‘Rain drop, drop top’… I love listening to ‘Bad and Boujee’,” said Maggie Fabick, junior.

Fabick drives over the Arkansas bridge in her Nissan Altima, anxious to continue watching One Tree Hill. Throughout the weekend, Fabick stays glued to her phone sending snapchat after snapchat and talking to her friends.

 

Mckenzie McDavid, junior, likes to spend her weekend in her comfortable bed.

““I just like to go home and sleep,” said McDavid.

The filters on snapchat are McDavid’s favorite things.

 

“I love the deer filter because it gives you those cute, fat cheeks!” said McDavid.

 

“Breakfast Club or Netflix?” Alex Glasco, junior, tries to chose and drives home in her 2016 Camry while rocking out to all type of music. When Glasco gets home, a snapchat with the dog filter is sent out and the couch is now her new bed. And by the end of the weekend, Glasco has watched almost every movie on Netflix.

 

A beat up Nissan Altima 2004 ran over a Christmas tree on the highway the day after Christmas. Despite the dents and scratches, “Call Me Maybe” or “Sidewalks” by the Weeknd can be heard throughout the car. Dylan Brasier, junior, drives home in this car, thinking of the perfect date for his girlfriend. When he’s not spending time with her, Braiser passes the time on Snapchat. “I don’t use social media but I’d choose snapchat because I can talk to my friends,” said Braiser.

 

“May the force be with you,” is heard on Reed Turner’s, senior, T.V. screen. After he got home in his 2001 Ford Ranger XL , he watched ‘Star Wars.’ When Turner isn’t keeping up with the force, he scrolls through Instagram. “Instagram is good because I can keep up with the people and find humorous things,” said Tuner.

 

Nathan Cantu, junior, gets in his ride and goes back home, not really having any plans for the weekend. But to keep up with what’s happening, Facebook is where Cantu goes. “During the weekend I usually watch ‘Back to the Future’,” said Cantu.

 

“Snapchat is the best because old people are taking over Facebook and Instagram,” said Carson Branton, junior, “I also love the filter that stretches your face.” After Branton gets home in his GMC Sierra he’s still trying to get over the feelings that the movie ‘Marley and Me’ gave him. “It just has a good story,” said Branton. By Monday, Branton still can’t get over it.

 

Abby Miles, senior, drives home in her Audi S5 jamming to Jon Bellion’s, ‘Maybe IDK’ song. Over the weekend, Miles likes to read and scroll through Tumblr. If she wants to do something else, Miles can always rely on Johnny and Baby in the movie ‘Dirty Dancing’.

 

After Richard Word, senior, gets home in his Dodge Durango, he tends to stay home the rest of the weekend. Playing ‘Cemetery Gates’ and strumming on his guitar or deciding between ‘Blazing Saddles’ or ‘Dazed and Confused’ is generally Word’s weekend plans. If he were to get on social media, it would have to be Instagram. “I don’t really use social media but I like Instagram because less people rant,” said Ward.

 

Looking past someone’s newest car or someone’s best social media page, these Juniors and Seniors are a really tight knit group of friends who will always have each other’s backs.
