You do not want the time to pass quickly.
And if you currently DO want it to pass quickly, you should find out how to NOT want it to pass quickly.
I have so many regrets about high school and so many fun moments and memories.
Please, do what you feel like and try not to have regrets about it.1

I was a bullied disliked nerd in denial.
I have always been excellent at academics, so my high school memories are all social struggles.
I was one of those people that was involved in everything and was friends with every group so I could always bounce around. I pretended like it was a great time. In reality I didn't have any real connections with anyone because I was too focused on being perfectly liked by everyone person. I was also in deep denial about how they made fun of me "behind my back" even though I saw it and knew. Things like picking teams for group projects, field trips, lunch tables etc were things I dreaded and feared because I didn't have a deep enough friendship with anyone for them to save me a place or to think about inviting in. I skipped every homecoming and prom because I was afraid of not having anyone to sit with or talk to. One of my most painful memories is my senior class reaching out to a few "unpopular" people who skipped social events to make sure they went to senior prom. They took great effort in convincing those people they had to come. But no one asked me to come or tried to get me there.
It took until the middle/end of college for me to realize I just needed to be myself, those that like you will like you for you. Those that do not are not worth your time. By grad school I was the "it" girl when it came to social life. I've made it a point to never be mean to others and to reach out when I see someone looking lonely at social events.
My advice to you us to be yourself. Always. Shit on the opinions of everyone else.
My other piece of advice is always be kind to others and never exclude people.
I'm now 9 years out of high school and have come to terms with the memories of bullying, confidence issues and depression I endured. I'm also lucky that I'm the most education person out of my entire graduating class; I'm an attorney, I've seen more of the world, and I went from being an ugly duckling to a very attractive and hott woman.1
