Because I was supposed to do these all in freaking June, and I want to get these done before Cal approaches, let's not waste time. I've wanted to do this one for a while. It's a rundown of all my favorite people that I had the pleasure of knowing, and several of them I'll probably see again...



The Best People from Laney/BCC

Because I forgot much of my first four full-time semesters, these are basically just from the Fall 2007-Spring 2009 semesters. Not that I've forgotten anybody from the first four, but I have no idea what their names are anymore, and I don't want to say "That girl with the cute hair", heh.

The Top 20 cuties
After their name, in parenthesses were the semesters I knew them, then the class, or if I didn't take a class with them, they made a "cameo" in my school life, heh.

Honestly, after #1-#5 I kind of just went with whatever.

20. Elaine (Spring 2008 - Spanish, Spring 2009 - cameo)

If I left anybody out it's because I forgot their names, lol. I'm really sorry about that, lol pervert.

One Semester Wonders

These are the people I only knew for one semester, and never saw them again. They made a huge impact on my life.

Spring 2007
Adam (Beginning Spanish Conversation) - I actually don't remember his name. I'll just go with that. He was a fellow Raiders fan from a Spanish conversation class and he talked to me a lot about them. Just happened to not see him again.

Fall 2007
Cicci (Choir) - One of the prettiest girls I ever met, and she was really nice and smart, and a good singer! Moved back to Sweden after the semester.
Theadora (Spanish 2A) - need I say more? Just read the best moments for why I feel that way. Transferred to SF State.
Rachel (Voice) - one of the first girls to regularly talk to me. I don't know what happened to her. I've seen her around in Berkeley once or twice but she didn't recognize me.
Ashley (Spanish 2A) - similar to Theadora, she was a bright spot during the rough Spanish class. She was only 16 and was taking Spanish at BCC for whatever reason, and went back to highschool the next semester.

Spring 2008
Daniel (Spanish 2B) - a cool guy who always treated me nice even when others in the class didn't. He's at UC Santa Barbara now.
Will (Guitar) - only showed off his mandolin skills with us for one semester

Fall 2008
Natasha (Choir) - a really funny girl who sometimes got into trouble for making too much noise. She liked me though, and I kind of miss her. She left to go to SF City College.
Rene (Choir) - Marc's girlfriend for the semester, she was very outgoing and fun to talk to. She didn't come back for unknown reasons.

Spring 2009
Pretty much everyone here I met this semester and it's not that they are leaving, I am!
Janneth (Biology, Jazz and Blues History) - we got along real well, and she was very pretty.
Mary Carmen (Biology) - Janneth's friend, really cool too
Peter (Biology) - another study buddy from Biology
Nicole (Biology) - ditto, believe she's transferring
Paul? (Biology) - I don't know his name so I'll just go with that. Same
Gaby (Choir) - didn't really talk to her until late, but she along with JQ and Kate were great people to hang out with after Choir
Jason (Choir) - I forget his name. We'll just go with that. Nice guy

Almost One Semester Wonders
in order of when i remember to mention them

Wily (Fall 2008) - Pretty much a one semester wonder, she was a nice person to talk to. She came back for one week during the Spring 09 semester but disappeared for unknown reasons.
Elaine (Spring 2008) - She had an impact, but not really a positive one. Still, an impact's an impact, but I bumped into her in the Spring 09 semester.
Harold (Spring 2008) - Then boyfriend of Elaine during Spanish 2B, I ran into him a few times in both the Fall 08 and Spring 09 semesters, including recently at Cal, where he also is transfering to.
Racquel (Fall 2008) - A nice lady to talk to during Geography, and we bumped into each other a few times in the Spring, but not that often
Amanthis (Spring 2009) - she would be if we had talked more, we bumped into each other in the Summer anyway
Tsukasa (Spring 2009) - we didn't talk enough for my liking, but she's leaving the school too, so I won't see her again
Dominique (Spring 2009) - she was great, but she didn't make that much of an impact, in fact, English 5 was kind of forgetabble socially. I'll throw in Adam, Dan and Will for helping me with the debate. A few other guys I forgot too, and some of them I've seen other semesters anyway.
Lauren (Fall 2007) - the only semester where I saw her the entire semester. She was around for the first half of Spring 2008, but left for personal reasons.
Carlos (Fall 2007) - only semester where he was really around, he was also around in the Spring 08 semester but not much and tried to enroll in the Fall 08 and Spring 09 semesters but never made it past the first month. Nice guy.

Longest knowing classmates/teachers
Time for the opposite. Who have I known the longest? Who have I seen the most semesters? Summer counts as a half-semester. They're given one whole semester even if I just saw them for one day in one. However, if that's the case, then I put that semester in italics, meaning they just made a cameo. If they were only around for some of a semester then I put (Partial) next to the semester. I have to interact with them though, seeing them but not talking or waving to them is not enough.

Because I've had many classmates I've seen for years (6 semesters in the music department, 2 semesters in Spanish) it'll be nearly impossible to get everybody, so I'm just including notable people

And a bunch of other music students whose names escape me, but I remember them!
And those I forgot...

Two more categories!

I Hardly Knew Ye!

People I wish I would have gotten to know more... In no particular order

Sophia (Fall 2008, Spring 2009) - She was very immersed in her studies and was kind of reserved. Still, she was a very talented singer and I found out late that she wants to be an actress. I have never had a real conversation with her, the closest being when Marc talked to her and I was right next to him so it was like I was in the conversation even though I hardly said anything. However, in the Spring semester I said hi to her whenever I had the chance.
Amanthis (Spring 2009) - We only talked once or twice, but for a while I thought she was into me. However later on the semester she didn't talk to me at all, even when I tried to approach her. She may have been taken. I don't really know much about her, but that just justifies her being in here!
Tsukasa (Spring 2009) - On my birthday we had a long conversation about each other, and about Japanese stuff, but she mentioned having a boyfriend so I didn't try to advance on her. We never talked after that.
Nomin (Spring 2009) - Her friend, I never had a real conversation with her, I think she was afraid of me.
Lauren (Spring 2009) - In Jazz and Blues History, she was a great looking woman with an adorable French accent. But although we would know each other enough to wave at one another when we bumped into each other, we never had a real conversation.
Christina (Spring 2009) - There was a Christina in Choir, who I didn't talk to at all, and a Christina in Piano, who I didn't meet until late in the semester. Both of them probably belong here, but I'm referring to the latter. She was young (18, now 19) and an excellent piano player, would have been cool to get to know her.
Lia (Spring 2009) - Anime fan, kind of shy, made weird comments during the Voice class but she was very into it. We never talked to each other.
Caitlin (Fall 2008) - Kind of nerdish, but always had fun things to say during the Psychology class. I bumped into her once during the Spring 09 semester as well. I always wanted to try and talk to her but never did so the entire semester, except during group interactions.
Ella (Fall 2008) - A very pretty and outgoing girl, she seemed to find a reason to have a crush on every guy during that semester, including me when I said that I was a singer during one discussion. We never actually talked though, except during group interactions. Was around during the Spring 09 semester but I never talked to her, and she found somebody.

I'm going to leave at it that. There are a few people from Bio 10, Speech, and Jazz and Blues History in the Spring 09 semesters whose names escape me, which is even more reason for them to belong here!

And to be fair, everyone in this LJ entry I hardly knew.

The Top 20 Best Persons in the World!

Finally, this is where I alienate all my friends who read this, which is none of them.

Who's my favorite? Who's not? Who meant the most to me? Etc. etc.

Note that after 5 or so, I'm just going with whoever. In brackets, how likely am I going to see them again? 1 basically means 0 but you just never know, 99 basically means 100 but anything can happen.

20. Gaby [20%]
19. Shanti [50%]
18. Daniel [1%]
17. Ruben [50%]
16. Ashley [1%]
15. Juanita [50%]
14. Racquel [25%]
15. Tammy [25%]
14. Stan [10%]
13. Sampson [10%]
12. Luis [10%]
11. Pricilla [5%]
10. Mary Carmen [25%]
9. Janneth [25%]
8. Kate [90%]
7. Eugene [1%]
6. Theadora [1%]
5. Analisa [25%]
4. JQ [90%]
3. Leslie [25%]
2. Brateil [10%]
1. Marc [99%]

I probably forgot people, but I don't feel like doing Honorable mentions.

Well, that's it for this part of the retrospective, I'll end with Part 4 next week which is a detailed statistical look at all 8 semesters, with analysis, grades, and social stats.

Then I'll write up my Cal schedule.
