To be completely honest I don’t know if I am more sad than happy or vise versa to be leaving Algonquin. I‘m really going to miss this place and all of its quirks. I have been touched by so many people including friends, acquaintances, teachers and administrators.

I have learned so much in my past four years. From self love to understanding the structure and function of the digestive tract. I have learned what true love feels like and how friends are really supposed to treat each other. I have learned how to treat others and how to make them feel the love that I have felt. I have learned that feeling confident and learning how to love not only yourself but others is imperative.

I have learned that it’s okay to not be okay, and if you need help you can ask for it.  I have learned that music is a coping mechanism that has helped me on numerous occasions.  I learned that growing and maturing is the most important part of high school.

I have learned that getting good grades will get you far in life, but being a good person will get you farther. I learned that not getting an A on an assignment is perfectly fine, and won’t affect you in the long run. I have learned that everyone should be friends no matter their “popularity.”

I have learned that teachers really do want the best for you along with administrators. I have learned that your teachers are your greatest mentors. I have learned it’s okay to break the rules a little. I have learned that I shouldn’t take life for granted because it goes by fast. I have learned who I really am and how I want to live my best life. Overall, there have been bumps in the road, drama, situations where I have felt lost and confused, people who have put me down, but I wouldn’t change my time at Algonquin for anything. It has truly shaped me into the person I am today, and I am forever grateful for it all.
