Schooldays - are they really the happiest days of your life?
February 7, 2007 4:30pm CST
Here in England we have a saying that your schooldays are the happiest days of your life. No job, no mortgage, no money worries etc. But do you think they are really? What were your schooldays like? Were you happy, or did you have problems with bullying, or worries about exams? Mine were fine to be honest - nice little English private, all-girls school, everything fine - but I'm sure not everyone was so lucky. So tell me about yours?

No school days weren't the happiest times of my life, I actually hated highschool, and never hardly went. I was always fighting with those stupid jealous girls in highschool, the same thing in elementary school as well. School was something i couldn't wait to be over and done with, once i graduated i haven't looked back.

NO! They weren't I hated my schooldays, they certainly werent' happy for me, mainly because I was bullied and my life was made hell by them. The teachers were neither use nor ornament, they couldn't control the class and we went through loads of teachers, supply teachers etc... I was always in the middle stream which was a bad thing in our school. If you were in the top stream you were encouraged and given all the help under the sun, if you were in the bottom stream you were given extra help, support and extra tuition, in the middle stream and you were left to get on with it. I couldn't wait to leave school at 16, I learnt more after school than I did in it. I remember a neighbour who alway said to me, enjoy them while they last, school is the best years of your life, I laughed at her then, and I laugh even more at her now!
