View Full Version : School: most dreaded place on the planet!

Does going back to school frighten you or make you really anxious? When you're in school at any points during the year, are you just unhappy to be there? What's your school experience like? If you don't go to school anymore, what WAS it like?

I quite enjoyed school whilst I was there :3 I finished my last year of college a few months ago so now I've got uni starting next year, but I very much enjoyed going to college. The classes were interesting, the people were great, there was always something fun going on, people all worked together when revising etc to make sure everyone got the best grades, it was just a really pleasant experience. I certainly wouldn't trade it for anything :3 I'm anxious about starting university soon for obvious reasons (new people = scary!), but I'm excited too so hopefully it should be good!

Going back to school excites me. No matter how long it's been since I've been there last. The only thing that makes me anxious is the thought of introducing myself to the class. I hate that so much and would avoid it at all cost if I could.

I love my school, actually, and I can't wait to go back. I seriously look at the place as a second home. This year's gonna be hectic due to college applications, but after those are out of the way, I have a clear run for the rest of the year. It should be terrific.

I get anxious in the first week of classes and imagine having mean teachers or not being able to find a room or being too late or too early etc. etc. But after I get there and have one or two classes I find it really easy and not anxiety-inducing at all haha.

College is great though. I can't get enough of undergraduate education. :3

I just went back to the school I literally despised after a year and a half ago, and honestly...I am more excited to be back rather than sad and depressed like last time. But I was a young 17 year old back then when I first started, so the main difference was how I acted towards college back then and how I act now.

My enthusiasm on returning to school came to me when I graduated from my other college in San Diego. It made me boost my excitement and get better educated as well as to get a higher degree. So if you ask me right now if I look forward to school today, I will write in CAPS LOCK that yes, I am looking forward to school today. I love both my English and History professors. <3

The dreadful days, though, are the first days. It's the usual "introduce yourself" days and the hour long explanation of what the class will be about. I like introducing myself, it actually makes me feel good. :)

I'm somewhat excited, though less than usual since nobody I know appears to be in my classes :( I'm always a little anxious that I've forgotten everything, but after the first week or so everything should be a-okay. Hm, gotta get that summer reading done though!

School's always terrified me and probably always will due to how utterly boring it was for me before, there's still college though but I won't have to worry about that one for a while since I'm currently trying to get admitted into the job corps and all.

I love going to school, and absolutely hate vacation! All my friends, all the fun, the parties, the memories can be found in school, and definitely not home on a computer!
So yeah, I can't wait until vacation's over...

August 28th, 2012, 2:26 PM
I feel nervous on the first day of school, but I eventually get used to it after a few days.

August 28th, 2012, 3:23 PM
The only things I stress about the first couple of days are: Did I get the right building? Did I find the right classroom? Am I here at the right time, did I read my schedule right? AM I GOING TO FIND A DECENT SEAT?!?

After those are all sorted out the first couple of days, I'm happy as a clam. I love school and can't wait to start back up this year ^.^

I start classes on October, and I'm only slightly worried about what the classes are going to be like, since the majority of them are going to be online courses. I'm pretty sure that I can be fine, but then again, these are my first online college courses, so at the same time, I don't really know @[email protected]

But college is awesome! I like taking part in club activities, too~

August 28th, 2012, 7:26 PM
What dimension are you guys from


I'm mortified about going back to school, and worse I have to attend a 4-hour orientation before school even starts back up! I hate being there, I hate almost everything about it and all I want to do is blend in like a chameleon so nobody even knows I exist.

August 28th, 2012, 7:35 PM
I'm already on my second week of college (unless you count orientation week), and to be honest I really was pretty nervous starting. Heck, how many incoming freshman who would be living in a dorm in at least one state apart from their family wouldn't? I still have yet to adjust to college life as well--sometimes I feel as if I'll wake up in my bed at my house, which causes me to get teary-eyed (even now I can feel my eyes welling up, ffffff).

But, it isn't too bad. One nice thing is that my roommate is nice, and the teachers I have seem pretty cool. I'm worried about the homework, since this is a writing intensive college (and guess who sucks at writing) but I think I'll do fine ^^;

August 28th, 2012, 9:36 PM
how the hell do people love school omfg

No. I can't stand school. Was never a fan. I'm really only going now because I have to. Y'know, for my future and stuff. But no, not fond of the place myself.

when I was at school I always hated going back after the holiday exspecail as the summer always ended on my B'day.( I was forced to go) but yeah school was a big waste of my time as I failed most of my tests.

I didn't like high school much when I was there. I was pretty much an outcast there mainly cause of my awkwardness and I sort of purposely made myself one. I didn't like alot of the people there and really didn't want to associate myself with my class and still sort of don't. Plus my grades and attendance was terrible. I dreaded waking up in the morning early to go because of the people who went there and I only made 3 or 4 real friends and a few good friends. Sat at the nerd table the last two years. I was late often and never did my homework and so that made my grades suffer. In grade school, I actually had decent grades, As, Bs and Cs and some Ds and Fs in 6th-8th grade. I love school back in 1st, 2nd, 3rd grade. Though in high school I put less effort in work, especially my senior year. I ended up failing high school and still haven't made up for it. I'm actually finishing up a correspondence course in order to get a diploma and it's taken a year to get done. The thing I regret the most is screwing up in high school and I wish I could start all over. I guess I'm still not very organized. I want to try again I actually get into a college which hopefully will be soon. When I do get into college, I'm gonna try to make a better effort at making friends and doing assignments/projects. I want to put more focus on learning in order to give me a good future career. So then maybe, I can enjoy school.

I absolutely adore going back to school. It's much more independent these days, and the collegiate lifestyle definitely makes it better. Towards the end of the year, school eventually wears me out. But I have to love it a whole lot if I'm going into education. :P

August 29th, 2012, 1:55 PM
It doesn't frighten me. I just get nervous. When I was going into year 11 I was really nervous, even though I'd been to the school for the past 4 years. I was basically unhappy everyday I was there, bullying was something that my school tried to hard to prevent yet failed so badly. I didn't really enjoy it at all. Sure, the learning part was great, but like I mentioned bullying was a huge problem, making my own and others experiences complete nightmares. I'm glad I'm moving onto college.

School's usually exciting the first couple of weeks, meeting new people, getting to know your classes and teachers, etc., but then after that it's like whatever. I do like school, because it makes me do something productive.

I'm pretty good in school, as I got straight A's all throughout middle school. No minuses either. Lol I'm not considered a nerd, just the classes are easy. I'm gonna miss school when it ends. Speaking of which, I go to my orientation tomorrow.

August 29th, 2012, 7:12 PM
So you guys are all basically all brave, courageous lions. Huh.

I maintain good grades, As in everything except math-related classes where I usually end up in the B range. I just hate being there. Funny thing is, I've never been picked on to an extent where I should hate school so much nor have I ever really been picked on at all. It's just scary and dreadful, I just push through every day blindly (except when I'm working) hoping it will go by faster, and damn does it work.

Was just talking about this with a friend earlier!

Kind of sad to say, but school makes me nervous and upset whenever it's time to go. >: I'm shy, so I dread professors making us introduce ourselves, presentations, and etc. That's really the only thing that makes me dislike school - a lot of my classes now make me present in one way or another and I just can't seem to work around that shyness haha. I know things like public speaking are unavoidable but oddly enough my being shy really only shows itself in class, not in interviews/etc.

But other than that, I'd say I settle in well! School on its own isn't so bad.

I actually liked school... it was the place I got together with friends and got away from the house and family. Also, I never really had any "nightmare" teachers till college, so that might have had something to do with enjoying school more than most.

August 31st, 2012, 12:56 AM
I get real anxious about going back to school at first, but I usually get over it quickly. I'm itching to go back.

I can say, yeah, there's people I'd rather not see everyday for the school year, but I really like being busy and learning. I love english, history, presenting, and art classes. Math and science aren't my favorite classes, but I'm okay with those classes. What I'm waiting to change classes is, is with CHOIR. I don't sing out loud and I'm certainly not start getting graded on my singing! Other than that, I can't wait to go back to school. =]

I haven't been to school in three years, and the thought of going back makes me feel sick to my stomach. I'm not sure why, something about going back to that life just fills me with dread.

September 7th, 2012, 1:31 AM
I feel every time I go back to school after a hoilday, It feels like the holiday didn't happen at all. Getting into the routine of the school day is very easy and it only really takes a couple time to get used to it again.

As a experience, I'm enjoying school currently after coming back. Moving to the upper part of the school makes the past years at school feel like a waste of time. I hated school back in July as everyone was finding a way to tick me off ;it was not a good experience.

September 7th, 2012, 7:59 PM
I really just do not like school. Such a bother! Graduating was pretty much the best day ever for me. School was never my thing... I sometimes have bad dreams about actually never graduating, or "forgetting" to take a class in high school so now I have to go back, or things like that :P I was a pretty okay student, maybe could've done better but I didn't feel like putting in the effort. First day back made me anxious in elementary/middle and starting high school, but starting in 10th grade I was sort of neutral about it.

This is my second year of no school, and I am enjoying fun stuff like eating lunch out with my parents everyday, going grocery shopping, learning to drive, staying up all night because I can, and other such things.

September 7th, 2012, 8:03 PM
It's boring. Just another day, really, but I go to the local college and don't do dorm life or anything.

No anxiety at all, I just show up and write stuff down.

September 7th, 2012, 9:19 PM
I actually like school, not because of classes, or even the people. I actually enjoy it because I know my life isn't getting any better from it. I doubt I'll find a better time than now (only in HS though so I guess I can't make conclusions now).
