As 8th grade comes to an end, many memories and friends are left behind. Below is the name of the songs and why I decided to chose them to represent the memories for this year.
1. Wiz Khalifa – See You Again ft. Charlie Puth Furious 7 Soundtrack
This school year has been wonderful, especially with friends that swim with you for over 10 hours a week. I chose this song to honour all the friends that are leaving HKIS, especially the ones who I have known since I came to HKIS. I feel like next year will be very tough and I don’t know what I am going to do without them. Throughout the tough training sessions and hard times, many of them have motivated me to be the person who I am today.
2. Joel Adams – Please Don’t Go
Although this song is similar to the first one, I chose this song because I can relate to all of the memories that I had. Especially to my friends who were with me on PEAK and are leaving next year. Ive pretty much been thinking for a long time about how I am not going to be able to survive with next year because of all the people that are leaving HKIS.
3. Don’t Let Me Down by The Chainsmokers ft. Daya
Swimming is hard, especially when you have to live up to the standards that you think people have of you. Many times during swim meets and training practice, and sometimes even pressure from the parents. I feel like there is always something that I need to accomplish and hardships that I need to overcome, especially in 8th grade.
4. Bruno Mars – The Lazy Song
I chose the lazy song because this represents how I feel almost every single Sunday. Sunday is pretty much when I have nothing that I need to do and also my only day that I can sleep in. I chose this song because it is pretty much how I feel like every day in the morning. I also chose this song because sometimes this is how I feel every night when I come home.
