Boy, was eighth grade a pain in the butt, i tell you. 9 classes, 45 minutes each. Now look at high school: 4 classes 90 minutes. The classes may have died down, but not the time.

You have lost 45 minutes into the aether... unless you are being funny about the time not going down.

8th grade, how old are they for that year?  Let me have something to work with.

Let's see. I'm 15...8th grade...2 years ago...

If you're in 8th grade, you're either 12 or turning 13, unless they've been held back.

That was a decade ago... I can't bloody remember XD

Aha, my second year in secondary school; we called it Year 8... XD (haha, that should have been more obvious, now I finally have a quick reference to the US grade system...)

God, work back then was a pile of piss.  Then again, I didn't find things hard until two or three years ago.

Although 8th grade is year 9... we have kindergarten before first grade.

Oh, Year 1 is not the first here either. ^_^;;

I think there are two years before Year 1.  But I'm not sure, I was in at school in Scotland at that time and not England (the education systems differ)

I guess you could say that high school here covers Years 7 to 11.  After that you can leave school as it is no longer compulsory.  Years 12 and 13 are then the years in which you specialise in a few subjects before you go on to university and specialise further (if you go).

Ah, the good ol' kinder days. Drawing, playing house, story time, nap time, snack time. I even made a picture frame with hard macaroni. What are the benefits of high school? Well, there aren't any.

I think that 7th grade was really easy and fun and 8th grade was just boring and kinda easy but too much work..

*still shuddering*

Be lucky you're still in middle school.

*continues shuddering*

well our school get 5 classes 1 30 mins each. haha, but longe classes. damn
Fuck this fucking world. I don't belong here. I belong.. with someone like me. Someone nice who actually has feelings. who tries not to hurt other people. That would be nice. actually once -n- awhile... i wonder if there is a part on the world that is like that. I don't think so, cause the way people treat me. I mean, i don't try to hurt people, but, y'all do. People never understand me. Never have. Never will. So  just run away.

the other way around for me.

4 classes, 90 minutes in my middle school/jr. high. we had "jig" and "saw" days... since our school was split into teams, and my team was jigsaw (charles and jennifer were on my team too.) i hated it.

now in high school we have 8 classes at 50 minutes each. it's not so bad, it makes the day go a bit quicker. and i don't really have a ton of homework so it's all good. that's mostly due to the fact that a lot of the classes i have to take don't really give out homework that often.

i also like that i have more teachers in high school... i don't know, i guess because if i have a mean one, i'll have plenty left that aren't mean? haha... i'm strange.
