I've missed the school discussion
Anyway, will still contribute with my experience of school
lol mines is pretty similar to you lot. I was just one of those usual students who messes around a lot, but knows when to the draw line and push myself when it comes down to exams. During early years of high school, i was a hard worker, but then puberty hit me lol. Went through year 8 till end of GCSEs practically learning nothing. I went to an inner city school in london as well, so things were even worse lol. Had 5/6 friends in class who i would just relax with everyone lesson, just joking and chatting. In the more serious subjects like maths,science, i would just pretend to be doing work, but really just day dream. I didn't really care about school. Would bunk lessons to go play football, go play games with other friends when their parents are out or just go wondering around town.
Then i would cram for exams, because my parents would get upset and i had some weird pride thing which made me want to do well in exams.
Ah, i miss those carefree days, just lazing about with friends.
