The time is now

High school is not a fun experience for everyone, unless you take initiative and try and make it as enjoyable as possible. I’m sure we’ve all seen 100 Things to do before high school on Nickelodeon and thought of everything we missed out on. Well, luckily compiling a list for high school is not that hard and so I started my adventure by compiling a list of 15 things to do before leaving school. This list includes almost everything and I’ll explain every step of the way.
Firstly be a leader without a title. We all sometimes get sick of people in leadership position who are not doing their job. Well, I believe that you do not need a title or badge to be a leader. If you feel you have the qualities that will enable you to take control over a bad situation, do so.
Secondly, sort out the newcomers. This goes both ways, if they show up with an attitude, make sure that it end before the week does. If they come in as shy and fragile, make them feel at home and welcome.
Thirdly, express yourself through hair. Be sure to try out as many hairstyles while you’re still in school, because if you do it after school, people might think you’re going through a crises. Bunk at least once a month, the reason I say this is because getting in trouble or getting away with something is a great thing to experience. So whatever the outcome, good luck! Also, take time and sleep in class. Yes, you might get into trouble, but in the end, it will be worth it, because those memories last forever.
Once you’re done sleeping, don’t forget to indulge in sport. It might not be your thing, but not trying will haunt you forever.
Other things you can enjoy include being part of the organisation of events, attending bazaars and shows of the school, movie nights, dancing like no one is watching and just enjoying every bit of time you have.
The rest of your list, you can go ahead and sort out yourself because learning to be independent is also on the list. Be the captain of your own ship and live life without regrets.
