During the final months of my high school journey in Guyana, after my weekend lesson was concluded, my friends and I decided that we would attend the racing park activities and later the bar. Bare in mind that our finals were also upon us for the following day. However, that did not stop us from going. Flashing back to beginning of the day, our classes were long and boring. The only excitement we endured during that 5-hour lesson was our eating break. During our eating break we came up with the idea that, we should have some fun before our finals began the next day. One of my closest friend said, “I think the racing park have activities today, we should go and lime a little and then come back to school.” We all agreed with her.
