School? Not for me
Like most, this reader wouldn't be so keen on going back to school.
I must say that I wouldn't go back to school either. I just went to school because I had to. I found it very boring, although I always got good grades.

I really hated sports and became very stressed out when it came to the athletics try outs. I've always been a nervous person and therefore tried to do everything right, just so that I don't get a hiding at school or to be scold at. I was thin and tall for my age but I was very clumsy.

At that time I didn't need any help to fall over my own two feet, let alone kids laughing at me. In primary school I had popular friends, but soon found out that they were not for me...Therefore I use to sit in the class during intervals. High School was not much different, I still hated sports to bits. Therefore always hiding whenever I had to practice. I had cool friends but I was not much bothered. I never had any problems at school.

I was well liked by everybody, including the teachers. Always the good girl, I suppose because all my sisters are much older than me. I was the 'laat Lammetjie'. Even so, I won't go back in time.
This is the first time I really think about it, I must honestly say.
