I was all of those as a student. Being young, around 7 or 8, you can't help but love the summer vacation. You transition from half-day to whole day so the adjustment can make or break it. Towards the pre-teen days, I was just meh... I wasn't sad and I wasn't all too happy.
But as soon as high school came, going to school wasn't all too bad. I was having fun! I was making myself busy and I was "growing up". You see, staying in an all-boys school can turn you into one torpe young man. I hate to admit it but yeah, for a time. I wasn't really good at talking to girls... How do you overcome it? You just need that dose of confidence!
College was a different story. I kept looking forward to the first day of school. Whether it be during the summer school, the start of a new sem or the start of a whole new school year. My dad says that I'm a rare breed. I was a guy who loved going to school. I guess I was blessed to have an excellent set of friends and I liked the people around me. I liked meeting new people too!
There are some people who think different of me because of my family background. They feel intimidated. But all of them thought wrong. I'm really easy to get along with. :) I smile a lot and I'm very approachable. My friends can confirm that.
So if you're the type of person who hates going to school, fret not. Things will be better. You only get the first day of school in school! After that, work is different. It's not the same anymore. Sure you meet new people but not as much as the people in school.
I envy the students, they have so much more to experience and discover!
To the ones entering college, get ready for the best years of your life! You have to work hard and study hard though. Believe me, maintaining good grades and having fun at the same time is the best!
Happy new school year to the students! To the working people, all we can do is look back at the happy memories and pass on our knowledge to the next generation...
