2022 Wrapped


Zelda Fishman, Editor-in-Chief

As 2022 came to a close, people used it as an opportunity to reflect on the past year. What they’ve accomplished, who they’re grateful for, and all the lulls and highs are looked back upon. The streaming service, Spotify, has released a yearly recap for each person who listens to music on their platform. Although it’s a fun and informative look back at the year that has come and gone, one might get inspiration from such a fun and interactive experience. Immediately my mind wanders and ponders, what other apps should have wrapped features and what should they include.

Naturally, my mind went straight to dating apps. Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, Grindr, and Christainmingle.com aren’t services that I personally use, but they do provide important services. Some of the wrapped prompts could be: How many times have you gotten ghosted? Who’s the most toxic person you went on a date with? How many times did you get stood up or stand someone else up? I think this could really administer a time of reflection on our love lives and how much of a headache they can be.

An app all Boise High students use is infinite campus and oh how I love it so. The dandy thing about this app is that it tracks not only your grades, but attendance. Some possible wrapped questions could be: How many times did you skip school? What teacher didn’t round your grade even though you had an 89.4999999? And how many times did you walk into class proudly holding your Starbucks drink not a care in the world if you get marked tardy because you walked in 19 minutes late and not 20?

To really bring the mood up, I think that having your bank account wrapped would be really fun and not guilt-provoking whatsoever, to see how much money you spent on useless items you’ve never touched. I know that most of my money goes down the drain on bagels and I don’t even want to know how much. Some wrapped questions could be: How much money goes to uber trips when you really could have walked? How much money did you spend on family vacation shirts that you all wore at Disneyland? Or, how many beanie babies did you buy in 2022?

In the end, 2022 was a year to remember. Many highs and many lows. Something I think we can all agree on though is not enough beanie babies.
