I Really Hated It
My parents would always say "School days are the best days of your life"...Well not mine. I seriously hated school. I was in primary school up to the age of 11, which if I'm honest wasn't always so bad, but my secondary school years from the age of 11 to 16 were hell.
My school was horrible, really badly run, teachers had no control over the kids who made the decision that they didn't want to learn.
I was bullied every day. I have a disability and was always made to feel different even by some of the teachers. I would report the bullying and nothing would be done. So after a while I just kept it quiet
Every day was like a popularity contest, I was quiet and academic and wanted to learn but of course that was never "cool". To be popular you had to be one of the pretty girls or good at sports or the girl dating the captain of the football team. I was never one of those girls. I spent my school day by myself for the majority of the time wishing that it would hurry up and end, and even if I did have a friend occasionally it never lasted for more than a few days.
When my final exams came around we all had study leave which meant that we could revise at home and just go back to school each day for our exam. I was so pleased that I was finally getting out of there.
We had a party a week before the end of school, and I decided to go though I didn't really want to because I didn't have a date and didn't want to go by myself but I was persuaded to go and "have a good time". At the end of the night I could not believe the amount of people who came up to me, people who had never spoken to me in five years at school (unless it was to bully me!) and they all said how we should keep in touch!!...I don't think so.
The day my exam results were released, I was the first person in the queue, I picked them up and I literally ran out of the gates of that place and I didn't look back. I would never ever go back to my school days again!!!
