    you are totally wrong school is fun and it will help you to get into college. after you go to college you can get a job that you can in joy. so don't ruin your education by being stupid and this is coming from a 13 year old. Trust me life will be soooooooo much better when you get the job you want (Report) Reply

    Your lines are short and written in simple English that isn't monotonous to read...as to your opinion, it's relative: school was like that for me as a junior but in my senior years it was simply awesome...but anyone that's ever has a bad day at school can relate to what you wrote (Report) Reply

    you've stated clearly your school feeling nicely, but I disagree school on my perspective, protects, feeds you information that you are not forced to eat, basically school is what you make of it, (Report) Reply
