Have all the fun you can, but do your homework too.
Do what you want to do, not for anybody else, but because this is your life.
Don’t give up no matter what!
My advice to the undergrads is play lots of sports, especially soccer.
“Experience: That most brutal of teachers, but you learn, my god do you learn” – C.S. Lewis –
Try your best in whatever you’re doing and you’ll achieve what you want.
Whatever you do, don’t make “The Big Lebowski” your role model!
What you want to do is your own business, so I have no comment.
A bad day skiing is better than a good day at school
Party as much as you can in grades 9, 10 and 11. Grade 12 is way harder!
Get out and see the world that is beyond Qualicum.
Get out of Qualicum; see the world. There is more to life than hanging out at Payless.
Get as much money from your parents as you can before you move out. You are going to need it.
I don’t give advice!
Listen to some Kenny Garrett; the real Kenny G.
Party while you can ’cause you’re gonna get old pretty quick!
To all you undergrads, after much studying, I have discovered the solution to every confrontation with the opposite sex. “You’re right. I’m wrong and I am very sorry.”
Have fun in your junior years because once you get to your senior years you don’t have time for anything but school. Also, get involved in school activities and the years will go by twice as fast.
Take a year off to relax before you start school again. After 13 years everybody needs a break.
It doesn’t end after high school. Try hard now so you can succeed.
Enjoy high school while it lasts and make friends with your whole grad class. They’ve been with you your whole life and you won’t realize how much you are going to miss them until grade 12.
Stay in school as long as you can… As soon as you graduate it when all the hard stuff happens. Enjoy yourself in the four years you attend KSS. Work hard, achieve your goals, both socially and academically, but most of all have fun. Life is too short to walk around angry all the time.
Have as much fun as you can in your junior years because once you undergraduates get to grade 12 the word “fun” is no longer in your vocabulary.
Your grade 12 year will be your best, but it will be filled with a lot of pressure and stress. Don’t lose sight of your post secondary goals and opportunities, and always have fun.
Over years of trial and error I have developed the phrase to end every conflict with the opposite sex with “You’re right. I’m wrong and I’m very sorry”.
