School is a wonderful thing

School. One word that can spark so many emotions. Personally I enjoy school but a lot of people dread it. As a teenager, school just piles everything on you and it gets to the point where you can't take anymore.

For example up until about the middle of Year 10, I just sailed through school and I never had to try to pass anything. Then I hit a point where I noticed I wasn't passing everything and I just took it as a bad day. It wasn't though and things got worse and worse till I finally noticed that I just couldn't do it anymore. For the first time I felt I was dumb. It had gotten to a point where I was far behind and I didn't even know.

So back to the wonders of school. I recently just finished my first official mock season. How did I do you ask? Well I have no clue! But best to be optimistic.  Exams aren't as bad as people seem to make them out to be. Of course revision helps but I learnt it's how you revise and it's different for everyone. But remember to never do big blocks of revision just little and often 20-30 minute sessions

Another wonderful thing about school is the drama. Teen problems. If I were to label myself as a role in my school year I'm the GBF (gay best friend) of my school. In other words I basically know a lot of things that people do out of school because people talk to me. Flattering! Even though most of the times I really don't wanna know. When I first came out I was the height of attention and everyone was asking the one question "Really?" And of course the answer was always yes. Trust me, coming out during high school was both a mistake and a blessing (When I came out, one of my friends was on the floor crying of laughter about it. I'll never know why...)

So yeah... School! You never realise how fast you grow up.
