Anyone Else Hate School?

My English teacher makes it a point to screw with me, when I've done everything the way I've been learning to for years and then messing up ONE DETAIL on the formatting and I get a D. I now have a C overall in the class and 3 paragraphs due about Ethiopia Friday, when I was running a fever, but it will probably still be considered late because clearly, I'm a psychic and can tell when I'm going to feel like passing out when I sit up. Every time I think about going to school tomorrow I just want to cry, because I will have no idea what's going on and clearly it's my fault because I got sick. What's the point? I know how to write, that's my only plan for a career. I'm 16, I can drop out, why torture myself in life more than necessary?! To make my parents proud? Please. To get a diploma for a job? I don't want a 9-to-5. I just feel...like...why?

I hated school all through high school. College is a bit better, people a bit more mature, and shockingly my college professors are more understanding than my teachers ever were in high school

That's funny, my teachers always say college is way worse than high school. Half the time I feel like I'm fearing for my life.

@shnuffeluv, my teachers told me the same. I think it really depends on the college you go to, and the teachers you have

I used to enjoy waking up in the morning, dashing to the car, packing my bag frantically. now its more like: "HEAVENS ON EARTH SPARE ME PLEASE" Middle school sucks if you don't have good friends and everyone uses you. Teachers are always picking on me to answer since I'm really quiet. Even though I love English and I'm passing the class with highest scores and 1 year worth of extra information does NOT mean I want MORE HOMEWORK!

I know that feel. Just wait until people want you to take AP classes. There's like 2 hours of homework, right there. One class. I dropped out of that class. =P

Emergosh, don't get me started on school. xD The most horrible things about school are the people, and common core. Especially the state testing. It seems we spend more time learning useless things, than learning important things, like human rights and how to pay taxes. :p

I graduated last week and I can't express how completely relieved I am. School for me was literal hell. I would literally feel sick in the morning knowing I had to go to school.

Two things made it even worse. The new principal and a system that allows the parents to see the students' marks.

In regards to the latter, I was literally afraid to had things in, and afraid to go home, because I was worries that my mum wouldn't be happy with my marks (she never is). I've never gotten particularly good marks and I've always had issues with handing work in on time or at all.

In regards the former, the woman is an absolute bitch and an absolute idiot. She disregards the school traditions. She doesn't listen to any of the teachers. She doesn't listen to any of the students. And she talks to everyone like we are about five years old.

Basically, school is shit.
