I thought you were gone forever. You haven't been around in several days. Welcome back.
You must be in a program in which the older students are involved. My daughter as a sophomore was involved in speech and debate and became friends with many juniors and seniors. Her sophomore classmates were impressed.
O, I probably shouldn't be telling you this ... but this is an initiation right (hazing), but don't worry they probably just ***** you naked and make you walk home a couple miles naked.
What an honor. The older kids like you. That must mean you're mature for your age.
