2: Dear Christine, It's already been a year since I've gotten to know you through glee and already been two months since the summer started! I hope everything is going well on the sunny side of California, a state that is second to best after the great state of Washington. It's been a tremendous blessing and privilege to get to know you through GCC. I have gotten to know you as a sweet, passionate, and extremely loving girl. You have been such a blessing to me, through your sharings, your love for God, and most definitely through just being your lovely self- and I know that I share such a sentiment with everyone in Penn community. Thank you for being such an encouraging sister in Christ who is always growing and never stalling. As you go through the next three years at Penn, you will face difficulties and moments of questions, but knowing you I am more than sure that you will overome such things and make the most out of your time at Penn and GCC. Thank you for being a constant sour of inspiration for me. You have a good, warm heart, Christine. I think that at the end of the day, such a good heart of yours will continue to bring you peace and happiness that God has in store for you. I am glad that I have yet another semester to get to know you and hopefully treat you with a nice meal. Have a great summer, and I wish you happiest birthday! I pray that in your sophomore year, God will reveal his ever-present and forever loving embrace and plans for you. With much love, Sol
3: Dear Christine, It's my pleasure to meet you and be in GLEE together the past year. You're a real great girl, so california-like, which is awesome! So sunshiny and happy! It makes me happy to see you too. I'm really glad to be able to try act like a sis to you even though I do wish I did better and made you more meals...but it's okay, I PROMISE to cook you more meals next year heehee:) Even though you're actually quite young, only turning 19..., you grew so much in your faith in freshman year. I'm very blessed to be able to be part of it and witness your growth, pray with you and such. I hope that we'll be able to do even more of next year. I pray, in your coming 3 years at Penn, you'll grow so much more than you can even imagine now and you'll be transformed. You're one blessed child of God, Christine. You're very very smart and cute. So many ppl love you and God loves you soooo much. Don't waste that. Use your blessings to be a blessing to others. You've already been a great blessing to Glee and me, I'm sure God will use you even more in the years to come. Be a sunshine that shines in the world for God's kingdom! Wishing you extraordinary joy on this precious God-given sunny california day(I hope it's sunny)! love and best wishes, Courtney:)

Congratulations on getting a year older and one more year closer to Jesus! Can't wait to see you in the fall!! Jack | Hey Christine! Happy Birthday! I'm so glad you became a part of our big GCC family! Its such a blessing to have you around. You are always smiling and friendly, so much so that it was a struggle to get you to strangle me in our Praise Night skit without you cracking a smile! Keep that joy and make sure you infect those around you with it! Have an awesome day and I pray that its full of blessings!!! -Patrick Atis
5: Christine! Happy birthday! :) I'm so glad we got to know each other last year, but I'm more excited for the upcoming year together as Whartonites and roomies.

7: Dear Christine, It has been my pleasure getting to meet you this year and getting to be in the same family group.

Happy 19th birthday to you! It's been like 2 months since I've seen you but I hope you're doing well. I just wanted to say how thankful I am for having you as a friend in my life. I don't think I've ever been having as much fun or being as challenged by you. You really have helped me grow as a person and I really am thankful for that. I hope that in this upcoming year we can continue growing our relationship as a even more Christ-centered one. God bless you and happy birthday. -Chris
8: CHRISTINE!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! <3 It has been so awesome possum being in Glee with you and I'm so glad that despite my frequent schedule switching (I am so sorry about that haha) we were able to meet and chat regularly during second semester :) I am really encouraged by your heart for God and your enthusiasm and love, and I can't wait until the day when you are a rising big bad senior to see how far you've come! I really hope that this next year is super blessing — that you are able to make lots and lots of amazing memories (along with some yummy food yayyy) and that you take many steps closer to being the EXTRAORDINARY woman of God I know you are well on your way to becoming! Have a super duper day and talk to you soon! Love you lots! <3 Sarah
9: Hey Christine! Happy Birthday!!!!! It was a blessing having you in my family group last year, and maybe we'll be in the same family group again this year? Haha, you’re a sophomore now so you get to be an older sister to the freshies and teach them all your tricks and master skills of nertz and other party games! I hope your summer is going awesomely at (I’m only going to say this once) “best-place-in-the-world” California. Get rested up and ready to face the challenges of sophomore year yeah? Haha, it won’t be that bad! Plus, you’ll get your own set of GCC babies to take care of. Hahahaha!!! Anyways, Happy Birthday Christine! Andrew Cie | Dear Christine, happy happy happy birthday!!!! I wish we were all back on campus right now (just for a day) so we could celebrate your birthday GCC/Glee style (i miss youu!!), but since we're thousands of miles away I just wanted to send you a blurb telling you how glad I am that you were born!!!! hehehehe yes, cliche i know.. but getting to know you this past year was seriously a blessing. I'm so excited to get to know you even better this upcoming year, and I'm looking forward to all the different ways God's going to be using you at penn/gcc!!!! Hope your summer is going well and that you're having fun at home~ stay beautiful, smart, and happyyyyy hehe:D have a WONDERFUL birthday and see you in september <3 Love, Ellen
10: HI TEDIJANTO SAUCE Tedijanto sounds like the name of a sauce. I just came up with that. Anyhow, wishing you a happy birthday!!! Hope this new year will bring you many more blessings in friendships, studies, nertz-playing, and awesomeness! -Greg | Happy Birthday Tedijants! I am so blessed to have known you and studied with you in MEYERSON EVERYDAY our freshmen year and of course It was a blessing to play all those NERTZ games every weekend haha! Pray that you're 19th year of life will be filled even more blessing and that you'll continue to grow in Christ even more! Hope you're keeping up with youre smiley face and hope that you are relaxing and enjoying your summer break in Cali because soon we'll be going to Meyerson everyday and studying and playing nertz hahahahaha anywho I'm excited for all the fellowship the 2014 is going to have! =] =] =] =] Harry
11: HAPPY BIRTHDAYYYY!!!! hehe. It's been such a blessing getting to know you this year. haha, all those night in meyerson studying our butts off, but it paid off well for you!! (i head you got into LSM, congrats!) beyond encouraging each other in our studies and fending off the guys for calling me a bro (haha) ,you have been such an encouragement as a sister. though we haven't been able to really talk as much as we would like since the two of us don't have similar schedules, when we do talk I always feel energized and at peace. even more, seeing you in the gcc girls' freshmen prayer, doing stuff for your family group and your family group leaders, having bible study with the rest of them, etc. has really encouraged me as a fellow sister in Christ to follow God and to put Him first. Hope your summer's been going well so far! Can't wait to see you back on campus in September :DDD. Happy birthday again! Praying God will bless this day and that your walk with Him will grow closer and closer as you learn to fall more deeply in love with Him every day! -Harmo | CHRISTINE! You cute freshmanbaby, hello! I hope that you're having a fabulous summer. I heard about Wharton so, CONGRATULATIONS, my baby-braniac. Just retain your soul, as I'm a really big fan of it. I'm sure you're growing a lot over the summer, and I can't wait to see you in the fall and creepily observe you growing in person, heeheeeeeee~! <3 your (favorite? should be.) cheek-pinching 2013! Tavi
12: oh look! its the the tedijants! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! as your present, i have to tell you the truth. i was lying before. jk. <-- oh its the customary jk in our conversations. I have to admit, if i hadn't known you this year, i probably would have had a much better year (oh jk!). but in all seriousness, i am really glad i somehow met you in the depths of meyerson and its been awesome having talks about life and what not! I have been very blessed to know you and to hear your way too high pitched voice all the time! I wish you all the best in this coming year. As you become a full fledged whartonite, you can come out and show us your dark side! remember, staying in the college is overrated. ok, this message is just a jumble of words but i guess my point is that i have been very blessed to know you this year and i look forward to how our friendship continues to develop in the coming years. you know, i never wanted a little sister, but i guess i now have one. oh poo. oh also, a little sage advice from your older brother as you enter sophomore year: don't be such a christine! Happy Birthday! --Edward
13: Hello Ms. INTENSE! I hope you have a great birthday and enjoy the rest of your summer. It has been a pleasure getting to know you over the past year and I look forward to seeing our friendship continue throughout our time at Penn. Your enthusiasm and optimistic outlook are always appreciated and never fail to brighten the day. Thanks for all of the great memories and countless inside jokes. Remember, even though you are nineteen, you will still be eighteen forever...at least in heart. Enjoy the day! - Andrew
