What Do You Miss About School?Watch
I miss the silly arguments and spontaneous fights, because it meant wasting the drama lesson writing witness statements instead of having to do any actual drama.
The unstable boys that could flip into bullying mode that I tried my best to avoid.
The mickey taking pupils that would pick on anything to belittle me and other people.
Playing rugby on freezing cold winter days on muddy pitches and getting tackled by someone twice my weight.
Getting detentions for turning up 10 minutes late, even though I was in time for my actual first lesson of the day.
Getting home and having hours of homework to do.
Being at an age where I had to either live with my mum or be taken into care by the local council.
The stress of preparing for and sitting exams...
For 3 years I did have an attractive English teacher that encouraged the class to write imaginative interesting stuff. She focused more on us writing well in adult life than in getting top grades in public exams. I'd be happy to meet up with her again to give her a hug and a thanks.
