    Default Favorite/least favorite aspect of high school




    This thread is for people who are, like me, in high school at the present time.
    Now before I get into my own personal things, let me just state that as a whole, I don't really like school(who does? ) BUT there are a few(I mean VERY FEW) things I do like about it.
    LIKE-Any history class(I think history is the best), geography(love learning about foreign lands), foreign language classes(German!), law enforcement/public safety(my "career class", taught by one of the coolest teachers ever, who was a former cop).
    DISLIKE-(oh boy!) math, science, ROTC, English(stupid shakespeare!), lunch(worst food ever), school faculty/staff(especially administrators. very few of them are nice. most seem like they want to just annoy the living crap out of you!), buttholes on some of the "extracurricular activities".
    Ok, that wraps up me! What about you guys?

    What is ROTC?

    Liked....graduating and 1.30pm finishes on Thursdays, and the fact that the Principal excused me from sport - big bonus

    Disliked.... being bullied, b#$%h teachers, whole-school assemblies dragging on cutting into morning break on Fridays , crappy buildings, the desks were so feral with rubbish and gum etc under them, and the first term holidays was only 1 week instead of 2 - so not long enough!

    ROTC stands for Reserve Officers Training Corp. and it's basically for people who only want to be in the military part time. They only call on you if they need you (if there's a war or something.) Junior ROTC is a class high school students can take where they learn about stuff dealing with the military. They have to wear a uniform once a week and do all these drill exercises. I think if they're in it and decide to go in the military after they graduate, they can enter at a higher rank (is that right?) It's kind of like miliary school for Francis, but it's only one class rather than all the time.

    EGAD!!! You got that right! I'm so glad I didn't do regular English so I escaped that crap! My brother had to do it in grades 11 & 12 (group act-out of a specific section). He decided his group would do theirs on video both years meaning practice runs & filming was done at our house... right outside my bedroom door to be exact (our upstairs hall is big) . But for MacBeth there were only 2 of them so he asked me to film them even though through the whole thing he was being a total jerk .

    I don't like all the structure of high school, and the little things that are out of my control, but extremely frustrating. For example, the lunch period is extended at my school and then you have class for x amount of time and lunch for x amount of time. I have study hall that period, and hate how I can't eat at a lunch rather than b lunch, since that's when the rest of my friends eat. Or how there's so many rules for everything. Or how teachers just pile on the homework and forget about other things happeneing in your life. As far as classes, I dislike chemistry. Stoichiometry is the worst!!! Not a fan of Spanish, but for some reason I signed up to take it again next year. It does make my resume look good. And I hate algebra ii. I'm really having a problem trying to figure out how to complete the goddamn square. Why do we need to do that anyway???? Anyhow, I have till Tuesday to try and figure out what I'm doing wrong there. I don't particularly like public speaking either, mainly because it's note-taking, not speaking. I don't mind history--that's my most advanced class and I've got a ton of homework in that every night, but I find it somewhat interesting. Except we've been between Reconstruction and World War 1 for like a month now and that period of time is boring to begin with. So I guess there's not a whole lot about school I do like.

    I guess I'm the odd one out, but I actually kinda liked high school. I had a close circle of friends and we had a lot of classes together so I guess that helped. Senior year was the best. We had a lot of fun. It sucks because after you graduate you kind of lose touch with people that you used to be close to. Those of you who say you hate it will probably miss it after you graduate. Of course I hated homework and stuff and chemistry was definitely my least favorite class in my entire school career. Homework was better than writing 15 page papers though, which is what I have to do now.

    Like - Umm... yeah. To somewhat quote Malcolm "because one day it stops". Which is this year. The only thing I can think of, is because I'm also in college because of the way our senior year is set up. So I don't have to wake up early everyday and go to high school for 8 hours. Instead I go to college 3 days a week for 2 hours.

    Dislike - Probably everything. Never liked the kids, the teachers, the classes, or the homework and tests. I also don't like how our high school is run, because it's not very planned out and there are often behind on things. I don't like that I don't get all my days off because college doesn't have the same days off. I don't like that I'm not out until June 26th. I don't like how everyone tries to be tough, and I don't like having to get in fights. I don't like how my friends usually end up leaving either. Also hate hs because we only have one team and that's in basketball(never got to play at my other hs). No wrestling team either : (

    Yardgames- I had algebra 2 in college. Not fun at all man. I spent atleast 2 hours per night trying to figure it out, and that's not even counting weekends. Good luck with that man!

    Actually, I just figured it out today. I have to factor the numbers when I move it out of the parentheses. If you don't do that, then everything comes out too big, which was my problem. Now it's pretty easy.

    @Wildcat I already have to write 14-page papers. OK, not reguarly, but I had a 50-page biology paper last year and they're shorter (i.e.) 2 pages, but I have to write 2 essays a week for history, and other one or two for composition and I have to write outlines and crap for public speaking. So I get my share of writing.
