Roux-Ché Shidute

We have made it. The end of the year is quickly approaching us. It’s funny how time flies, how we believe that we have all the time in the world. This is a concept that I wished I really came to grasps with earlier in high school. Allow to elaborate on what being in high school has taught me. Firstly, most of my classmates have been here since grade 8 and what really surprised me this year were the friendships that I have made, the new bonds that have been formed. As a matter of fact, these friendships seemed non-existent 4 years ago. So, what I want you (my fellow TDS students) to understand is that the best friendships come from those you least expect it from. That person that sits quietly during break all alone and acting “weird” might be your next best friend and might change the course of your life completely. Similarly, One of my best friends today have had a major impact in my life and we only started being friends towards the end of last year, even though she has been at Dolphin since grade:8. What we both regret is that we didn’t start our friendship earlier. So, take a chance at talking to someone else and remember not to judge a book by its cover. Secondly, what grade 12 has taught me is to live in the moment and to enjoy school! The amount of fun, frustration and fights that have happened this year have made us into the strong class we are today. What I mean about living in the moment is that one should put your phone down and have actual conversation with your peers! Share your feelings. Not only has this year been filled with a lot of fun, it also came with its lessons. Therefore, as I approach the end of high school, the most important lesson that I have learnt is to stand up for myself and to take responsibility for my actions. Finally, remember that you are the pilot of your own life and only you can decide how the rest of your high school career will turn out! Remember to make the best of it. Have fun, study hard, make new friends and don’t forget to live in the moment!
