Seniors of CPS: Pyrenees V.

Pyrenees V., senior — interview conducted by Angela Wang


Thursday, February 23rd, 2023, 12:00: We're sitting at the bench before the glass screens of the student commons. I click record. "Welcome, Pyrenees." The interview has begun…



Angela:

All right. Interview question number one: if you could choose only one song to play every time you walked into a room for the rest of your life, what would it be?


Pyrenees:

Pass.


Angela:

What about an album?


Pyrenees:

My music taste changes a lot, and like the song I would pick now, I wouldn't pick in the future.


Angela:

True. Well, what about a song for the entirety of next week?


Pyrenees:

Let's see. Let's go with "Circus" by Britney Spears.



Angela:

That's a classic. What is something unique about you that your classmates might not know?


Pyrenees:

I have 20/13 vision which is better than 20/20 vision, but, um yeah.



Angela:

Wow, that's cool! Looking back at your experience at CPS, what's something you will never forget?


Pyrenees:

Laughing at people.


Angela:

Anything in particular?


Pyrenees:

Your face. *pause*


Angela:

What about a CPS event in particular? I mean, I guess that's a CPS event? *laughs* I don't appreciate those comments, Pyrenees.


Pyrenees:

I love you so much. Can you tell?



Angela:

All right, what are you looking forward to in the future, missy?


Pyrenees:

Not dying? *silence*

Okay, I was joking. Let's see, well. One day to direct my own movie. Also, I hope one day to be a lead character designer or lead animator of some sort. I want to be a "lead" of some sort. You know, make corporate money and then, in my spare time, do personal projects, like comics and stuff. You know?



Angela:

If you could say thank you to one room at CPS, which room would it be?


Pyrenees:

Room? Hmm. I'd say thank you to the debate room for always being warm.


Angela:

The debate room. I didn't know you were in debate. Are you still in debate?


Pyrenees:

No.


Angela:

*laughs* Oh, you know what? That makes a lot of sense that you were in debate.


Pyrenees:

I had to drop it because I had a lot of stuff going on with my life. And it was like it was just that one thing that just wasn't worth keeping up anymore.


Angela:

Yeah, because it's a very it's a pretty big commitment. You have to travel a lot and do a lot of research.


Pyrenees:

And even then, I just didn't, you know, invest that much time in it personally. So it's just like, I'm not really emotionally invested.


Angela:

Would you say that you liked it overall? Debate?


Pyrenees:

Debate? It was fun. I really liked it. I mean, I liked talking about it. I didn't like actually doing it because, I don't know, it was really scary.


Angela:

Yeah, I bet. Debate can seem overwhelming because it's a bit argumentative, which doesn't suit some people.


Pyrenees:

It was fine, but it just required a lot of prep work, which I didn't have the energy for, in all honesty.



Angela:

That's fair enough. Okay, last question. What do you feel like you have accomplished in CPS or outside of CPS?


Pyrenees:

Being alive in this god-forsaken school?


Angela:

I mean, *laughs* I mean, the fact that you survived for three-and-a-half years means a lot.


Pyrenees:

Yeah. Good luck to you. And it'll be fine. You'll be fine. I'm proud of the fact that I'm still relatively happy.


Angela:

That's great! Good talk, Pyr.
