Do U miss your "School Days".....*&^%

Gone are the days!!! My Friendâ€¦ When The school reopened in June, And we settled in our new desks and benches! When we queued up in book depot, And got our new books and notes! When we wanted two Sundays and no Mondays, yet managed to line up daily for the morning prayers. We learnt writing with slates and pencils, and Progressed To fountain pens and ball pens and then Micro tips! When we began drawing with crayons and evolved to Color pencils and finally sketch pens! When we started calculating first with tables and then with Clarke's tables and advanced to Calculators and computers! When we chased one another in the corridors in Intervals, and returned to the classrooms Drenched in sweat! When we had lunch in classrooms, corridors, Playgrounds, under the trees and even in cycle sheds! When all the colors in the world, Decorated the campus on the Second Saturdays! When a single P.T. period in the week's Time Table, Was awaited more eagerly than the monsoons! When cricket was played with writing pads as bats, And Neckties and socks rolled into balls! When few played "kabadi" and "Kho-Kho" in scorching sun, While others simply played "book cricket" in the Confines of classroom! Of fights but no conspiracies, Of Competitions but seldom jealousy! When we used to watch Live Cricket telecast, In the opposite house in Intervals and Lunch breaks! When few rushed at 3:45 to "Conquer" window seats in our School bus! While few others had "Big Fun", "peppermint", "kulfi", " milk ice !" and "sharbat !" at 4o Clock! Gone are the days Of Sports Day, and the annual School Day , And the one-month long preparations for them. Gone are the days Of the stressful Quarterly, Half Yearly and Annual Exams, And the most enjoyed holidays after them! Gone are the days Of tenth and twelfth standards, when We Spent almost the whole year writing revision tests! We learnt, We enjoyed, We played, We won, We lost, We laughed, We cried, We fought, We thought. With so much fun in them, so many friends, So much experience, all this and more! Gone are the days When we used to talk for hours with our friends! Now we don't have time to say a `Hi'! Gone are the days When we played games on the road! Now we Code on the road with laptop! Gone are the days When we saw stars Shining at Night! Now we see stars when our code doesn't Work! Gone are the days When we sat to chat with Friends on grounds! Now we chat in chat rooms.....! Gone are the days Where we studied just to pass! Now we study to save our job! Gone are the days Where we had no money in our pockets and still fun filled on our hearts!! Now we have the atm as well as credit card but with an empty heart!! Gone are the days Where we shouted on the road! Now we don't shout even at home Gone are the days Where we got lectures from all! Now we give lectures to all... like the one I'm doing now....!! Gone are the days But not the memories, which will be Lingering in our hearts for ever and ever and Ever and ever and ever ..... Gone are the Daysâ€¦. But still there are lot more Days to come in our Life!! NO MATTER HOW BUSY YOU ARE , DONT FORGET TO LIVE THE LIFE THAT STILL EXISTSâ€¦..

Yes, I do really miss my school days in which we used to play kiddie games in my kinder and elementary years. I really love playing jackstone and the like. I also miss my teachers. Eventhough some of them are really tough and terror teachers. I also miss my crushes in my school days as well as those people who courted me before. What a puppy love...I really treasure it and I even want to go to school again and keep on learning... I love schooling and I love being a student forever...

I have been out of high school for a few years, and sometimes I just sit and reminisce about the old days. I was a majorette in marching band and attended avg sized school, but everyone knew/loved each other--which made it so much better. I check up on friends that have moved away for school through facebook, while I'm reading through their emails/ pictures I feel so great but sad. Everyone has these great lives ahead of them and we will always remember the times we had when we were young, no matter how old we may get.. gray hair we may grow.. or kids we may pop out.

yeah I miss school days when there's no pressures, what u do it's only you who will bear the consequence or gain the fruits but in real world and you're working everything suffers when you ain't doing well. So I miss school that way.

I definitely do not miss school. I don't miss the people or the teahcers or homework or tests. i was always so stressed out in College and I just couldn't wait to get out of there. I am much happier now in the working world!

yes, i do miss school! :) i miss... the university facade by which it is known throughout the world, the santissimo rosario parish wherein i visit Him every morning, the central library where i met dante alighieri and sophocles, and where i got acquainted with nick joaquin and mayette bayuga, the airconditioned classrooms wherein i had my dose of knowledge and trivias, where we got lively discussions with our beloved professors, my blockmates who have become my other family for three years, my school mates who i just met along the way and caused me to smile the whole day, the security guards though they sometimes piss me off, they're still the bravest brothers in the campus, the grandstand where most events happened and where students rock many times a school year, the gymnasium where i ballroomed in PE but with my dumbness i missed to dance with my crush... LOL! and there are a lot of things i'm missing...........

Hey with your discussion you have moved any people. You have touched many people gone days memories. Thanks. I do miss my school days a lot. I miss those intervals where we rushed to buy some guava and share with everybody. I miss those days where we eagerly used to wait to go home, rush down from stairs to ground. I miss those second saturdays where my dad used to come for parent-meeting to collect my report card. I miss those days where I used struggle for my rank. I miss everything ---and the most my bunch of friends
