You remember High School Musical, right? It was my life in second grade. And now I’m going into seventh grade and I’m wondering, what happened to our East High BFFLs? Well, here is your epilogue.
Oh, Troy. Where would a singing basketball player who randomly bursts into song when he’s in trouble to solve all his problems end up, anyway? Well, after Troy graduated East High, he decided, “Eh, screw it. I’m so good at singing and convincing people I’m fantastic, I’m going to become a motivational speaker!” He has since gone on to write books, including the best selling how-to “How It’s Okay to Be You, Especially When You Sing!” Troy is super successful and rich, thanks to him becoming a motivational speaker.
Gabriella, so innocent and you are lucky you stay that way. You and Troy break up, and you pursue your dream of finding a cure for cancer, which you are hard at work on to this day. You really need to make time for your personal life, girl; you are not going to meet the future Mr. Montez hunched over a microscope. That’s all.
Gurl, you’re fierce! OF COURSE you become famous! Except you drop the Broadway diva act and you go all dark on everyone. Who knew you had a dark side? Who knew you would channel your Bikini Kill/Alanis Morissette/Siouxie Sioux side and get so real? Who knew how loud you could be and how great you look in black? You have surprised and amazed us all. You stay as sassy and amazing as always.
While your twin sister Sharpay is busy working out her inner girl, you’ve turned your back on basketball and acting and have become a corporate hero, just like your pops. And on the weekends, you teach pilates! Way to stay fit, in body and mind, Ryan!
Taylor! After all the excitement of cheering on the Wildcats, you realized that science bored you. And you really have always been a people person. So you’ve become a high-ranking employee of a little company called Google. No one knows what you do exactly, but you definitely like wearing hats.
Chad, you get taken in by the hipsters after you suffer a terrible meniscus injury and can’t play basketball anymore. So you about how sad you were and the hipsters saw you and brought you into American Apparel. You have been a happy hipster ever since.
