School days are the best days of your life. Are they?
« on: August 06, 2004, 12:32:36 am »
You always here that statement, but I don't agree with it at all. If my school days are gonna be the best days of your life, then my life is gonna be pretty shitty from here onwards.

I think the best days of my life so far were at the point near the end of my school career. I ditch my old friends who I'd hated for years, met my new and closest ever friends and met my girlfriend of 3-years still going. And now I'm at university I'm enjoying life much much more. Maybe because I'm using my brain nowadays, while back at school I was pretty much a brainless fool who let others knock him down.

Anyhows, just wondered what others thought, or think, or their school days? And whether the above statement is true.

I think somebody's been listening to "The Wall".

Lol. No actually. Although I have of course loistening to it, a while back.
The reason I brought this up, was that I'm clearing out my room and was looking thru some old school books and folders. I was just thinking how much I hated 75% of the classes for various reason. I binned quite a lot ;)

I think the statement refers to university anywayz, all educational institutions taht you have to attend before hand dont really have the best reputations.

americans seems to annoyingly refer to Universities as "schools" a lot...confuses me....

No not really, I do not concur with that statement. With school you see your classmates 5/7 days a week, just going to school and more if you go out with them on the weekends. I 'm about the same age as you and when I left school I left most of the people I knew and only kept a few very close friends next to me. But now I've continued onto uni and I prefer going to uni then going to school. Since I've left school I've met some really nice people and have much better friends. But in saying that I didn't mind school at it, the interaction you get with other people the activities, etc.

Couldn't have said that better. High school sucks pretty bad here, I'm not a social person so I never talk to anyone at school anyway but it's a small school of ~300 and because of that offers none of the required courses most people need for university entrance into fields of their choice. Computer Sciences? Forget about it, our school doesn't have any of the required Infotech 11/12 courses. Want to do astronomy(like myself)? Oh well they don't teach any astrophysics in physics 11/12, you have to wait until you get to uni.

Infact I just started calculus first year uni course as a grade12ap course via correspondance since our school doesn't have anything other than Math 11/12 so that I won't be horrible overcome by the change when I go to a post secondary education, if I can get there. Next year they plan to cut a bunch of courses out of our school depending on amount of students, which means they could gank math 12 or physics/chem 12 that are required and then make us pay for correspondance. So much for free education in Canada's socialist system, god damn liberals are good for nothing. Not to mention for uni you need like 90%+ average to get in and with high school courses as boring are and the fact I end up taking french and woodshop and crap because a) french is required b) nothing to do so I had to take woodshop... my grade average is utterly shot. Feh.

Today is the best day of your life.

Because it's the last day of the rest of it.

I can't say that I hated school, until GCSEs it was pretty much ok. I did get picked on a lot but I could handle it and I didn;t have any friends but I didn't really mind. Beginning of year 10 is when I think I lost it. I found the pressure really hard to take. I didn't particularly like most of the subjects I took and we still had to do PE.

A-level was like a living hell. Me and my Lady used to fight every single day which usually ended up with me walking out of school. I hated every class I was taking and I didn't do well enough to get into the uni I wanted so I ended up going straight into work.

Right now though I'm pretty happy. I mean, I love my new job and my relationship is really cool. (5 1/2 years on tuesday ^_^ ) I'm not depressed anymore and I actually like getting up in the morning. So yeah, school sucked but life rocks.

My friends were what made school horrible for me. So much for support - they joined in with the bullies. That's why I ditched them in the end.
I have kept friends from school, though; the ones I met during 6th form, which isn't really school, it's a through road to university.

PS: Happy b'day Boaz. Happy anniversary, Valentine.

I haven't stayed in contact with any of my friends from school. They weren't really my friends, we just hung out together because we didn't have anyone else. In a way its kinda sad, but I don't think we really liked each other anyway.

Unless they talk to me on ICQ/MSN/AIM I don't talk to my 'friends' from school. I assume the ones on my list I'll probably keep in touch with unless they change their accounts. Sigh @ all the ICQ users gone poof. Used to have almost all my contacts on ICQ but now there is usualy none online. :|
