This is a thread for those who were bullied in school and have since then left/graduated. It's an interesting question, really, but despite what happened, do you ever feel you miss school? I'm going through a phase where I'm sort of missing secondary school. I'm homesick for the relative simplicity of the life at school and the easy school work. Just the old Monday-Friday routine of waking up, going in from 8.30am - 4.00pm (well technically its only 9.00am to 3.20pm but including travelling etc), the easy school work, the fact it was 'compulsory' made it so much easier because I was forced to get on with crap. I miss some of the teachers, very few, one in particular Mrs. M. I was randomly reading my schools website the other day and I looked at a PDF document on rules/routines and thought back to it. Then of course I loved year 7 and 8. Well not loved, but liked. Things went okay and everything was so much easier. Of course, from year 9 onwards, I hated every second of it.. I dreaded going into school, I hated the constant bullying I would knowingly be subjected to, the loneliness and the isolation of having to hide myself at lunch. I put on (and took off) my school uniform for the very last time on the 19th June 2009 after my last GCSE exam, so just over two years ago now, though I stayed an extra year for sixth form, but that was different. It's really funny, because I counted down the days, the hours, and the minutes for when I was getting out of there.. I guess I just miss the control and structure of my time there, and if I go further back, the memories. I'm only 18 now but the uncertainty of the future is worrying. I'm no longer bullied, but I am lonely, and I irresponsible and unmotivated. Does anyone else feel similar/similar-ish?
