It's been ages since I left high school. Thinking back about the good old days, all I could remember was the good time that I get to shared with bunch of good friends. Not a lot of us still keeping in touch nowadays, and the only thing that connect us was the past, and that's all we could talk about if we were ever had the chance to get together.
Life was really so much simpler back then. So, so much simpler compared to now.
It was less worrisome back then. Not even the bad grades scares us (okay maybe a bit). All we ever care about was how to have a great ball of fun with friends around and our favorite teachers. We skipped classes, copy answers from the hardworking student, played some pranks on our friends, nonsense stories, talk about girls, football bets... oh gosh, I really missed the good old days.
Seeing some of the students now, I really wanted to tell them to live life to the fullest no matter in what stages of life you are at, because there's no turning back afterwards. Though I wasn't the brightest or the smartest and surely not a teacher's pet back in high school, but I never regretted all the stupid things that I've done with my friends. It was the most memorable moments for me in high school and I really glad I did it.
Of course, you can't just blindly enjoy the fun part that young teenage life has to offer. You'll need to somehow gather that extra knowledge and skills to make sure you can make it in the future too. Not just for the sake of survival, but dream big and be a world changer. Life in school can provide you with all the foundation and basics skills that you need to make it in society. So pay attention once in awhile.
I have shared my fair share of fun back then. Now its all about the future and leaving a legacy worthy for the human race. On a lighter note for the students, school exams is not the end of your life, there are much greater challenges afterwards and even studying hard can't help you with it. Learn to adapt and make the best out of all your situations.
All the best!
