    I think I've had enough with my secondary school.
    A whole 5 years i worked day and night as the best kid i could be...in the last year all the popular kids were given the senior roles and i just got a standard role like 120 other kids in the year. A few weeks ago they gave out awards...like proper awards to those 'popular' senior role kids and a few other kids. Like WHAAAAAAAAAAAT!? Im not jealous or envious and neither am i dying for an 'award'...its just the fact that you end up feeling like a total loser when you dent get appreciated, not even 1%. Like i sacrificed 'fun' in order to do well...I just hope i can get a good set of GCSE results so that i myself feel my success. But is it just my school or what, cos they have been very unfair (not just with me but some other people too I've noticed have worked hard)...anyway rant over.

    The only thing that matters in secondary school is your GCSE results.

    Ain't no one gives a f#ck over who was the school prefect when you've beaten everyone in your school

    We had awards two weeks ago for secondary school, trust me I know how it feels. I came back home regretting going and woke up in the morning not feeling well. I worked hard AF for a certain subject and didn't get an award.

    I was even like to my friend, I feel so gutted and I should just throw my life away. 😂 Joking obviously, but it didn't feel good not being appreciated.

    Trust me, in about 2 years, when you and everyone else are off to uni (or apprenticeship or wherever), nobody will give a hoot on what kind of roles or awards they got in secondary school, ever. It won't be long before you have your head down doing A levels (I'm assuming), and everything before your GCSEs (including all the pointless "award in lessons") will seem like nothing. I got a similar kind of treatment (luckily I left to a different school for sixth form), and I never looked back. So what I'm saying is just forget about it. All that matters in secondary school, is your GCSE grades - the final result from over 10 years of compulsory school.

    Rewards will come when you least expect it.

    Instead of being boastful, try to be humble a bit.

    I remember 3 zears ago when i finished secondary school i got a subject award and that was not based on being popular or answering questions all the time or being teachers pet.

    Everyzone in that particular class knew i was not the smartest.
