Top 10 Things Many Students Can Relate To

School is quite the interesting time of our lives. We meet a lot of people during our time there and make both friends and enemies, and lots of memories, good and bad. This list talks about the experiences and feelings most of us share related to school. There's a lot to add to this list, so I encourage you to do so.
The Top Ten
1 Stress

I am pretty sure that almost everybody has been stressed at one point in their lives going through school. I also get anxiety and stress when interacting with others at break time and I especially get stressed about exams/assessments/homework.

I am currently a 10th Grade sophomore in summer school for the said grade/year. I had a very rough start with the workload during my freshman year because I was in the GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) program which meant that I was assigned more challenging work than the average class.

There's many things that cause stress in students whether it's homework, grades, what people think of them, or something else. It really sucks, but just do things that helps you when you're stressed. For me it's drinking water, breathing, and walking outside, and some other things.

Happens quite often for some who struggle with studying.

2 Being tired in school

I sometimes feel tired at school. Even though I still try hard at school, I keep thinking about what time I will finally get home to relax in my free time, after some tiring day at school.

You have to wake up early in the morning and I think it's BS honestly and I'm sure a lot of people will agree with me. There's no good reason for this, and it's hard for students to focus when they are half asleep. Something really needs to be done about this, I hate it.

I have such a big problem with this, and teachers have ZERO sympathy. Like, I can't work very well in my first class at ALL.

Yeah especially if the teacher doesn't teach.

3 Being excited for summer break

It's just really nice to get away from the stress of school and learning about boring stuff we probably won't even use later in our lives and be absolutely free to do whatever we want, as long as it's legal. It's one of the reasons why Summer is my favorite season.

The monotony of school is prison, summer break is amazing. Gets really hard to focus at around late May

And being annoyed or tired when it ends.

And this summer break ends that fast.

4 Procrastinating

Guys, why is procrastinating on here? It's not hard to avoid. I was able to start one of my harder assignments, then I wondered what the definition of "assignment" would look like upon looking at a definition. I thought to myself, "hey, this word looks odd, doesn't it? ASSignment? The word SIGN is also in assignment too" Then I remembered a funny thing I wrote on a Minecraft sign once that my friend found hilarious. Then I thought about the Minecraft sign. Then I realized there are probably thousands of different blocks in Minecraft. Then I thought about "Hey, there sure are a lot of blocks, wonder if the amount of mobs in one picture will look crazy." Then I looked at the Minecraft mobs. Then I thought to myself, "I would hate to run into the Husks while in the desert" and I remembered there are also lots of biomes in the game. I looked at all the biomes in Minecraft one-by-one, and thought they were a little bland. Sure, there were a lot, but they were just like they are in real ...more

We all just did whatever we wanted to do and put off every assignment until the day it's supposed to be turned in. "Due Tomorrow = Do Tomorrow." Please put that on my tombstone.

The only reason I'm on this site is because I'm procrastinating.

Oh yes. In Pre Cal I didn't do homework till the block before.

5 Hating Back to School ads

This REALLY bothers me because it reminds me that summer break isn't that long. It's even more annoying when they show up not very long into it. Stop it, oh my god. Just let me enjoy my break and shut up!

This is another reason why I am glad I don't have mainstream TV anymore.

Yeah especially when I was younger.

6 Playing flash games

I remember playing flash games in school and they were pretty fun. I played CoolMathGames and other sites just like every certified epic gamer. For example, World's Hardest Game, the Run games, Checkers with the most insane AI imaginable, and Duck Life. The 4th Duck Life game is the best one and no one can change my mind. R.I.P flash, we will miss you.

Super Smash Flash 2 was the big one for me. I loved it so much and I would play it whenever I got the chance.

I remember when flash games like CoolMath Games used to be a HUGE thing back when I was in elementary school.

I loved playing CoolMathGames when I was in elementary school.

7 Not paying attention

Often in class I just drift off into my own world instead of listening to what the teacher is saying. Why? Because I don't care about Billy and his 57 watermelons! Why does he have so many anyway!?

I do this quite a bit, especially when the teacher has been talking nonstop for a long time.

Yes, I like not paying attention.

Such a huge problem for me.

8 Being bored

This is easy to say Bored all the time But that is not what matters much for me in school

9 Wishing you had the Death Note

Honestly, thinking about owning a Death Note in real life is a really cool idea. The anime show is very good and the overall idea of owning a note book which you can write other people's names in, if they are villains or someone who tries to get in your way, kind of reminds me of Light Yagami's original intentions to make the world a better place by murdering criminals (Then again, that would probably make the user of a death note, a murderer themselves).

I know there's that one teacher or student in your school who you absolutely despise, don't try to deny that, that would make you a liar. I definitely wish I had the Death Note so I could write a certain student's name in it. I'm obviously kidding but I hate him.

10 Carrying heavy things

Later on in school you'll have to carry a million textbooks and notebooks and stuff and it's very hard to carry it. I'm not kidding about this but my backpack got damaged one time and I'm pretty sure it's from literally holding all that crap.

A lot of us do, especially when we have all these textbooks or whatever in our backpacks what we need for our homework.

The Contenders
11 Losing stuff

Messiest locker ever over here. I can never ever ever find anything, and everyone looks at me when I have to dump out my bin to find something.

12 Moving away from your friends

Unfortunately I'm going to move this summer and I will definitely miss some people. I made some great memories with other students and I will never forget those great moments of my life. This won't be the first time either, but I will still miss them and I probably won't ever see some people again. I might go back to my old schools and remember the great times I had. Nostalgia is a crazy feeling, man.

13 Idiots on the school bus

I remember before the pandemic happened, riding the bus was completely awful. There were these stupid kids randomly screaming outside of the buses' window. It got so bad, our bus driver had to stop driving to yell at everyone to shut up.

14 Lockdown, tornado, and other drills
15 School blocking websites

This happened a lot They blocked kid-friendly websites. They used Overzeouls web filters and they are sometimes Underzelus too

16 Hating school
17 Dreading end of grade tests
18 There is always at least 1 annoying classmate
19 Screaming in your mind but never saying the words aloud
20 Bullies and school fights

I hated my middle school years (especially 6th grade) where there was constant bullying and fights. At the middle school I used to go to, in 6th grade, every girl in my grade would always give me the stink eye, make fun of my big forehead, and just mean to me. I broke up my friendship with several of my friends because they completely changed that year, and some didn't like me because I keep telling everyone to be quiet.

I like how one of the loading screens from the game, Bully is used as an example.

21 Finding a girlfriend or boyfriend

No need to, it depends if you want or not to have a relationship.

22 Dirty restrooms

This didn't happen very often for my school but it happened every once in a while

23 Squeaky shoes in the hallways

I'm guilty of this. It's like the shoe assembly line is meant to produce a pair of squeaky shoes every 20 pairs or so.

24 Shopping sprees for back to school
25 Having enemies
