If you asked me what years in school I had fun with, I have to say it would have to be my high school days. I couldn’t help but look back on my four years at VYP-MSC Institute of Technology and ask myself, “What made my high school memories worth remembering?”.
I used to be a wallflower during the early part of my high school life. I was so shy and nervous but as time went by, I gained a lot of friends and experiences.
I had a lot of experiences during high school that molded my personality. I even got to know myself better because of the school programs. It gave me the full effect of being in high school. There is so much more to it than grades and school work. The school gave us the chance to show our full potentials other than academics. We got the chance to join the school’s different clubs and organizations to hone our skills, talents, leadership and yet to discover abilities. I got the chance to be a big part of the school’s newsletter and student council, play Volleyball, sing in front of the crowd which I never did in my entire life, be part of the dance group, and a whole lot more.
Staying after school for something you love to do give you a sense of pride and dedication to your school and while you’re there the memories you make and the people you meet are moments that you’ll never forget.
Of course, these experiences won’t be worth remembering if not for the friends I gained during my stay in school. I remember some of my friends wrote at the back of my notebook during break time telling me stories about their crushes – I still have those letters. We used to exchange text messages at night about our favorite koreanovela that time – Full House. We formed our chairs in circle to make chatting about random things easier for us during lunch breaks or free time. I still have bunch of stories to tell but the pages won’t be enough for all those stories.
How can I forget to give credit to our teachers and to the management for being awesome? You made learning fun and exciting for us. It wasn’t easy but it’s all worth it. Kudos to all of you!
High school was an emotional roller coaster ride. I miss it and all the crazy things we did. It was amazing and I will look back on it fondly.
