Schools out for summer for me, and I'm full of mixed emotions. I'm sad that the school year is over, but then again I'm happy for many, many more reasons. There are some things about high school that I won't miss while on my summer break because they just sucked. Here are the top 10 things on my list of worst things about high school. Let's face it, we've all experieced at least one of these things during our small taste of the real world.
Nobody likes homework. It takes away from the free time that you get at home, and adds more stress to your day. I mean, didn’t we learn enough while being in school? Why do we need to bring school home with us, and rush to do some stupid homework and if we don’t are grades gradually drop? definitely won’t miss that.
Bitchy Popular Girls
One thing that you will come across in high school are those annoying popular girls. You know, the pretty, but mean popular girls who always are cheerleaders, travel in packs, and making out with boys on the lockers? Yeah, apparently Mean Girls can be a reality. It’s annoying to have to shove past them because their thrusting sexually on a boy’s junk on your locker while you’re trying to get into it. Yeah...no. I won’t miss you, girlies.
Let’s face it, nobody likes Mondays. After partying and staying up past midnight, Monday is a total buzzkill. Getting up from your warm, cozy bed can be a challenge, especially if you barely got sleep last night. Just five more minutes, let me sleep, please.
You know, those teachers that take five months to grade one stupid worksheet? Come on, dude, I stayed up till three in the morning doing that essay. Do me a favor and let me know my grade on it faster? I did your work, can you at least give it back sooner?
And we all know that one teacher who yells at you for doing virtually nothing… But the guy next to me started it!
Nobody. Likes. Tests. Especially standardized ones. They barely do anything good, but cause you unnecessary stress and sadness when you find out you were literally one point away from proficient. So close, yet so far away. They just want to make you bang your head against the desk.
There’s that one guy who always asks questions. There's that one guy who won’t stop tapping his pencil. There’s that one girl with her phone under her desk, you know, having a thumb war with herself. There’s that one guy cracking dick jokes. Yeah...don’t be that guy.
Bullies. Nobody likes those kids who harass you to the point that you don’t even what to come to school anymore. Come on, could they at least be considerate and stop causing us to be insecure, and to hate ourselves? They’re literally wasting out time and depriving us of our right to be educated. It’s sad, especially when your school doesn’t even put in the effort to stop it. I won’t miss those bullies.
Too much stress and pressure
From homecoming, to prom, to tests, and everything else going on, it can be quite stressful to manage. What dress am I gonna by? How’s my hair gonna look? What outfit should I wear on Tuesday to impress my friends? Yes, the pressure to fit in gets to us. That’s just how high school is...a popularity contest most of the time.
Omg, did you hear Sally died her hair blonde?
Omg, that girl is so fat.
she’s soooo annoying!
Kate was sexting my boyfriend!
Guys...do me a favor and stop gossiping about people! I want no part of your pointless drama that adds even more stress to my already stressful school day! I won’t miss that, ever.
Teachers that tell you behave, but don’t “behave” themselves
You know, that one teacher that tells you not to bring food into the classroom, but has a whole Golden Corral buffet on their desk! Or, they tell you to put your phone away, but their fingers are twiddling away on theirs. Yes, I know there are rules that we should follow, but you don’t have to do that, really. Don’t, please.
