High school is the time of our lives where we discover who we are, and who we aspire to be. Needless to say the road will be tough for any high school student, especially in balancing the three Ss: studies, social life, and sleep. But then again, the experiences gained from all those could just be worth it. Unfortunately, high school doesn't last forever; it's time to get out of that little shell of yours, and go after the opportunities! Whether it's a school program or activity, get engaged! Try out for the varsity team or audition for the school play—you'll never know what you can gain from the experiences you'll make! Here is a list of common activities and programs in high school you might want to explore.

  1. The Student Council

Being part of the student council means having the confidence to serve as the voice of the student body. Along with a team of student-leaders, you'll come across many new experiences, such as meeting new people and organizing the school's events.

  1. Scouting Movement

Are you ready to serve the school community? Then join the scouting movement! The mission of this movement is to train you to become disciplined and responsible in servicing others. Likewise, you'll be involved in many outside-school activities, such as helping the local community and outreach programs.

  1. School clubs

There are times school can be tiring, and some of us would simply like to spend time engaging in extracurricular activities. Hence, signing up in school clubs could possibly be the answer. So besides academics, you'll get to explore your hobbies as well. Remember to choose a club that suits your interest, one in which you can also develop your skills.

  1. Sign up for volunteer programs

Devote yourself to the community around you and sign up for volunteer programs, such as tree planting, outreach programs and many more. As you volunteer to help out the local community, you'll come across meeting new people in different areas and be more aware of its surroundings.

So what are you waiting for? Start now and make new experiences while you're still in high school! But remember to also manage your time wisely. Aside from joining extracurricular activities, our academics are also important, that is why you have to make sure you can manage them both at the same time so you won't stress yourself out.

Let's live while we're young, high schoolers!

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
