The long 8 hour day is my 2nd problem with skewl.
1. THE FRESHMEN, especially the preppy cheerleader girls. Gaggles of them congregate in the halls, and we all have to push our way through them.
2. The locker bays. We have four separate quadrants filled with rows of lockers, and we have to keep the same ones through our four-year career. Doesn't sound so bad, doesn't it? It does if your locker is right between two pot-smoking sophomores, one of whom has a girlfriend with a locker on his other side whom he makes out with every other day. My backpack smells like marijuana smoke, and I literally have to force the couple off my locker every day.
3. Focus (aka homeroom.) Like lockers, we all have the same Focus, with the exact same focus teacher, every four years. The problem is, we're all assigned teachers according to our place in the alphabet, and somehow all of the idiot rednecks in my grade wound up in my Focus (the second half of the R's and the first half of the S's.) I was only two names away from being placed in a DECENT Focus.
4. The fact that regardless of how early you leave, you can never get a decent parking space.
5. The fact that the superintendent is a total buns-hole and won't give us a snow day, no matter how icy the roads are.
6. Never being able to get in all of the required classes. I had to change my schedule about six times to get all of my credits in.
7. Those assh*les who think that they can just brag about their most petty "achievements" through their letter jackets. Seriously, I've seen the stupidest things on them, and people are just competing with one another through their letter jackets. Fine, I have a jacket of my own, but I actually earned the patches for academics and NHS, and the only reason I have it is because it was a gift from my mom. Seriously, no one's going to care in college.
8. The fact that GPA's are on a 4.0 scale and not weighted based on AP and honors classes, and that if you get an A minus in gym class, your chances of being valedictorian are gone.
9. Two words: BLOCK SCHEDULING. It's not fun sitting through 80 minutes of math.
10. The fact that there's still one more lousy semester left of waking up at 6:45 in the morning and classes beginning at 7:30.
And there's more, but I think I've spent enough time on this.
