Nikola is a pretty serious guy. And quiet too. Sometimes when I'm doing my attendance at the end of the day (don't tell anyone that I wait until after 3pm to do it!) I have troubles deciding whether he was there or not. "Well, I don't remember him answering any questions... but that's pretty normal. And I don't remember him asking any questions either... also pretty much the norm. I guess I'll just mark him as being here". Who knows. Maybe Nikola has skipped my class many times and I've stayed completely oblivious!
It's somewhat amusing to me that there are two Nikola M's in grade 12 (actually two Nikola Mil's) that - at times - teachers have troubles distinguishing by name alone... because these two are so very different! Many times I have heard a teacher talking about "Nikola M in grade 12" and when asked "which one" the answer is often something like: "the quiet one" or "the serious one" or "not the one who does the fingers thing".
Thanks for your quiet determination over the past four years Nikola. It was a great pleasure (and very easy) to teach you. Good luck!
