Worst Things About the 8th Grade


The Top Ten

1 Your teachers start rushing through lessons
2 You get so many projects and tests, you think you'll explode

Once you finish a project in one class you get a test in one and them and another project than test. - MetalObsessed

3 Everyone is freaking out about high school

Yep, even me since I'm in 8th grade currently. - Pegasister12

4 Your GPA, all of your school history, and all of your grades are sent to local high schools
5 Fearing you might end up going to a high school you don't want to go to

My school district only has one high school. Not much of a worry for me. - Turkeyasylum

My middle school is also a high school so I will stay there till college - AnonymousChick

6 Fearing your friends might go to different high schools

I am kinda getting tired of some of my current friends. My best friends are mostly talking to other people, and some have completely turned against me. Well, that makes it kind of a good thing.

7 Everyone is still a jerk and immature

Unfortunately, I suffer this cataclysmic case, my peers are so annoying that I just want to get up and leave the world

Immature yes jerk no - Frouze

8 Bullies

Especially if they blackmail you for telling on them. I told a teacher that this girl was being extremely annoying, and she told the principal that I said "n," even though I didn't. Profanity is banned in my school. Also, any words that can make people feel bad and/or cannot make people feel good, are also banned. I almost got expelled until I got "witnesses."

9 You and your friends start drifting apart

Here is what happens when mostly the same people are forced to be together this much a day, this many days a week, for 9 years:
Best friends: go down in rank
Normal friends: mostly talk to other people
Acquaintances: Start getting annoying
Enemies: Become even worse
