Introducing the Top 10 of the Class of 2017

  1. What is your favorite North Springs memory?

My favorite North Springs memory is from Freshman year, when the Senior Class moved Dr. Ruiz’s office into the commons as a senior prank.

  1. What advice do you have for future North Springs students?

Talk about Mizzou to Mr. Smith if you want to do well in AP U.S. History. In all seriousness, I think it’s important that you do whatever makes you happiest while you’re at North Springs. Take the classes that interest you so you can enjoy the content you are learning. Participate in extracurricular activities (whether that’s in school or not) that bring you joy. Don’t do anything just for the sIMG_5351ake of “it’s what colleges will want to see from me.” Prioritize what will allow you to enjoy the last few years of your adolescence, and don’t be afraid if that’s different from your peers. It’s your life to live.

  1. What are your plans for after high school?

College! (Don’t ask… cause it’s still a secret) Then Medical School (most likely)!

  1. Do you eat Mac and Cheese with a fork or a spoon? Justify your answer.

In the country I come from, we generally like pointy eating utensils more than curved ones. I like Mac and Cheese with a fork.

  1. If a cyclops closes its eye is it a wink or a blink?

Wink

  1. If you drop soap on the shower floor is the floor clean or the soap dirty?

Dirty soap. Definitely.

The C!

  1. Should bald people use soap or shampoo on their heads?                                                                                                                                                                                                           Soap.

  1. What is your favorite North Springs memory?

December 9th 2014.

  1. What advice do you have for future North Springs students?

Grades aren’t a competition. School isn’t a zero-sum game. Work together with your classmates and you’ll all come out ahead.

  1. What are your plans for after high school?

  1. Do you eat Mac and Cheese with a fork or a spoon? Justify your answer.

IMG_5348.JPGThe correct answer is fork. That way you can stab the last couple of noodles. It’s ok if you disagree, you’re entitled to be wrong every now and then.

Blink: defined as closing all of one’s eyes; therefore it is a blink.

Katie feels like by the time you figure this out you will have slipped, fell, and bled out on both the floor and the soap, dirtying them both.

Neither. They work together to make the perfect sound.

  1. Should bald people use soap or shampoo on their heads?

3n1 shampoo, body wash, and conditioner. It covers all the bases!

Binging Smash Bros at COMAP until 4am

2) What advice do you have for future North Springs students?

3)What are your plans for after high school?

Go to GT, find an internship, then a job, then find somewhere to live, then find a dog, and walk that dog every day. Rinse and repeat with the dog as necessary

4) Do you eat Mac and Cheese with a fork or a spoon? Justify your answer.

Only uncultured savages eat Mac & Cheese with a spoon. Forks offer the optimal macaroni per bite ratio, and can be used to pick up individual macaronis. Spoons scoop up a disgusting amount of macaroni each time

A blink unless it’s a charming cyclops

#8: Nathan Buffington

  1. What is your favorite North Springs memory?

My favorite memory from my four years at North Springs was definitely my first COMAP. I had an amazing time working with my team on a complex math problem involving crime patterns in Chicago, and the most effective ways for police to patrol them. We also roller-bladed and skateboarded down the halls late at night and had fun working on math at the same time!

  1. What advice do you have for future North Springs students?

My advice to future students who want to succeed at North Springs would be to balance your AP courses with extracurricular activities. They are an invaluable part of having fun in high school, meeting like-minded friends, and impressing colleges with your variety of interests.

  1. What are your plans for after high school?

My plan right now is to attend the University of Chicago, where I hope to major in either Mathematics with a specialization in Economics or statistics. Maybe one day I’ll be an investment banker, an actuary, or a hedge fund manager.

  1. Do you eat Mac and Cheese with a fork or a spoon? Justify your answer.

You should certainly eat Mac & Cheese with a spoon, as a spoon allows you to pick up the IMG_5347.JPGmost macaronis, and also is most useful for scraping the bowl to get the leftover cheese.

  1. If a cyclops closes its eye is it a wink or a blink?

If a Cyclops closes and opens its eye, it has to be a blink. A wink is special form of communication among humans that necessitates an unnatural movement of the eyelids. Unfortunately for cyclops, that is their only form of eye movement, and as such they can only blink.

  1. If you drop soap on the shower floor is the floor clean or the soap dirty?

The soap is obviously dirty because it can easily accumulate hair or dirt/dust, while the floor of the shower is not properly scrubbed to insure cleanliness.

  1. Which is silent in the word scent: the S or the C?

This is definitely one of those unanswerable questions – like how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop.

  1. Should bald people use soap or shampoo on their heads?

Shampoo takes oils out of hair. If the bald person thinks that their head is too oily, they should use it. Otherwise, soap.

  1. Do you eat Mac and Cheese with a fork or a spoon? Justify your answer.

Fork, you can eat more of it.

Both
