Favourite memories of PCHS:

Honestly, the funniest thing that ever happened to me was when I brought an aerosol can of fake prank poop to school one day:
My friends and I went to town on one of the junior hallways with this stupidity. And I officially want to apologize to the staff for having done this.
The vice-principal, at the time, walked into my English class and wrongly crucified my classmate, Marc Carvalho, for this stunt, which he absolutely had no involvement in whatsoever. He served detention for us, among other things (I think he may have even gotten suspended, but I didn't know the extent of it all, at least then...)
And yet, he shouldered that bullet for us; Nobody ever knew that we were the real culprits.

Years later, I had the opportunity to apologize to him for all of this, and I'm glad to have gotten to do so.

Marc, wherever you are now, I still want to thank you for being so cool about it...

If I ever run into you again, I owe you a beer or two!

Message for future graduates:

You only live once, my friends. Make sure that it counts. Do the best you can with what you have, and always use what you've been given to do right by the lives you're fortunate enough to touch. In the long run, you'll always get something back for what you give in this way.
