New School Year
« on: August 03, 2004, 10:06:54 PM »

At the risk of being jinxed  ;D - Is everyone looking forward to the new school year?  and when do you start?

I know my stay at home dad husband is dancing around the house like the guy in the Staples add singing 'It's the most wonderful time of the year...'

Our 5th, 4th and 1st graders go back 8/26.

Ugggggh I'm starting 10th grade in September and I'm DREADING it!
The only thing I'm looking forward to is the look of surprise of all my friends who have no idea I'm coming back to London after a year in Hong Kong  >:D
Apart from that, I have a lot of patience: I'm not too enthusiastic about the idea of being dependant of a routine again.

I miss going back to school.  :'(

I have to work on getting student loans so I can hopefully go to school in the winter. 

I really miss getting everything packed the night before, the excitement of seeing who's in my classes and stuff.  Yeah I'm weird, but I really really loved school.  Could be the social aspect of the whole thing.

*Feels for Marold*

Yeah, I want to go back but I don't. Everyone I know says high school held some of the best years of their lives, but they were popular, er, somewhat. I'm the biggest geek/nerd/ dork in my grade. I think it's just because I absorb info like a sponge, but that can't be held completely accountable.

I'm going into senior year in about 3.5 weeks. I'm not looking forward to it at all. For one thing, I'm not done with my summer homework. In fact, I've barely started  :P. also, I'm without a car, and the bus to my house just got canceled. It's looking like it's going to be quite an un-fun senior year.

Hmm...any class titled "novels" sounds like its got to be rough. Good thing you've only got 5 periods.

Good luck with that by the way.

Thanks. Novels doesn't sound hard: reading books as fast as you can while still getting the meaning. Jane Eyre is on our list...

Yeah, 5 periods. Each one is 70-80 min. long, and I have no idea when I have lunch. :-\

Deedra, don't believe that crap about high school being the best years of your life. Yes, there are great things about them, but I would never ever in a million years go back. Every year since high school has gotten better and better. College was leaps and bounds better, and being my own person, earning my own money, paying my own bills--nothing in high school, not the grades, the good test scores, the experiences, can ever compare to that satisfaction. There's so much more to life than high school, and I feel sorry for those who look back at it as the best time in their lives, because life has so much more to offer.

Erm, yeah. *hops off soapbox and shoves it under a table*

Amen!

Also, a "heads up" for those who are going into their last year:

Enjoy it.  Take time to smell the roses and all that rubbish.  Join in as many stupid corny social events as you can possibly find at your school.  I spent my entire last year STUDYING and now I wish I had gotten to know my fellow students a little better.  Especially now that my "afterlife" is so much better than theirs.

AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!! >:D :roll:

Hmmm...*looks down corridor*...well...carrying on.

Yea, highschool, as much as im living it at the moment, isn't as cool as all that. Too much drama and mindless accedemia. I can't wait to get out of here and hit college. I'm sure the experience will be much better.

Speaking of which, are there any Alum's in the building with any bits of knowlage about their schools?

High School is manic - lots of highs and lots of lows and very little in between.  I just went to my (eek) 20th reunion and guess what - every one talked to each other, regardless of who they were friends with then - and a lot of the 'cool' ones from 20 years ago didn't show (wonder why?)

 Ping's right - I would never go back.

I start back next Monday, and I am *so* excited. Nervous, but excited.But for all of you who are dreading it, wait until you're ancient like me and you have to drop almost FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS on your books. *sigh*

But if I could go back, I would.  I'd be a lot more efficient so I could have a lot more fun. 
Then again, it seems like the older I get, the more fun I have.  ;D

Dude, you guys, I'm going insane. I swear I posted in this topic, I swear it. Didn't anyone read it? I remember what I said and everything. I came in here all ready to read all the responses to what I wrote, but instead I find I never wrote anything. I think I've finally lost my mind from being around you people too long.

Seriously, I totally remember being like, the 4th post in this thread. *dies*

Well, I guess I'll put in my two cents... again...

~*~*~

Ahhh!! You said the S-word!! My poor, untainted ears have been ruined with the filthy utterings of you savages! *runs in circles, foaming at the mouth*

J/K, J/K. I start my junior year in High School on September 8, but I'm also taking two 5-credit college courses at the same time, so you could sorta-kinda-not-really consider me a freshman in college, too. Here's my schedule. We normally have 6 classes, but since I'm doing the college courses through my high school, I only had to take 3. Since we're on a block schedule, with A days being periods 1,2,3 and B-days being 4,5,6, what this means is that I don't have to go to school until 9:00, and that on A-days I get to leave at noon.  ;D

Period 2: Advanced Computer Graphics
Period 5: United States History A
Period 6: Drama 2
Mondays and Wednesdays, 4:45-7:00: Japanese 101
Mondays and Wednesdays, 7:10-9:35: English 101

I'm actually sort of looking forward to the college part of it, but classes don't start there until September twenty-something, so I've still got over a month before I have to really get in the swing of things.

*looks around gloatingly at all the people that have to start tomorrow*

(BTW, the S-word was "school", in case anybody didn't catch that.  ;D)

When it all comes down to it. Its just school. And it'll go by faster than you think, and it wont be as bad as all that. Nothing ever is. Life rolls on. Do i sound silly, because i think i do. Oh well. Really though, its not as big a deal as all of that.

I wouldn't say these are the best years of my life, but i'm still enjoying myself. Get involved! I'm into everything I can be. Extra-curriculars are where you meet all of the most fun people at your school ;). I'm on Students council this year as "green colour house captain"  :laugh: I'm excited.
