High school was it a great experience or was it a nightmare, or maybe it was just something you felt you had to do and all you wanted was to get through it with as little fuss as possible.
I didn't give it much thought at the time, it was a place I had to go and endure, I was not popular and in fact I was picked on a lot of during high school and had only a few friends. Now despite how much I didn't like school, I went every single day more or less usually only having one or two days off a year due to sickness.
I never skipped school, it never occurred to me to not go, I never tried to get out of going because it never occurred to me to do so. I walked to school most days also walked home most days, in fact I found walking home to be very relaxing a nice time to unwind from a day of work.
I was not a A grade student, I was in a C class in fact I was in the class about the dumb class so not bright in any way shape or form, that said I was also top of my class not because I was the smart but because the class was filled with a lot of dumb assess who would rather spend their time talking to each other over doing the work...............now don't get me wrong I spent a lot of time chatting to Cathy ( my best friend) and eating junk food, yeah I would eat in class.
I rarely got into trouble at school both me and Cathy were considered to be good kids. We would both spend a lot of time hanging out in the school library and we both pretty much hated sport or PE although I think I hated them a bit more then Cathy did.
We both left school at the end of year 10 after getting our school certificate, there was no way we could have stayed and done the higher school certificate we just didn't have the brains to understand the work.
Now days there is this big thing about getting kids to stay in high school to year 12 and get their HSC, but some kids just don't have the brains to do so.
If you could go back and talk to yourself in high school what would you tell yourself?
I would tell myself that my life will turn out pretty great and that I will married a great guy, I wouldn't tell myself not to stress about my future since I never did. As I have said before I just driftered through life going with the flow.
