Worst Things About Going Back to School

The Top Ten
1 Summer vacation is over

It feels like it just started yesterday. Going back to school means no more sleeping in, toys, games, drawing whatever you feel like, music, watching TV, and free time. School can be one of my anxiety triggers.

A lot of Americans in my area visit the Jersey shore during the Labor Day weekend even though school has started for them already. However, my family (who's Asian) DOES NOT go anywhere for Labor Day weekend after school starts. They want us to study instead of enjoying summer before it ends.

NO!
I have to go to school and do more boring maths spelling and writing our recounts instead of playing video games!

It feels like we are brainwashed children being mind controlled to go inside this hellhole that is school.

2 Homework

If I do all my homework after school, I won't have any free time (unless I pull a Ferris Bueller or something), but if I stay up late, I'll be sleep deprived. I guess the only real solution is to do it on the bus and at school before the class period it's due.

The teachers basically think that we don't have a life and that all we care about is answering stupid math and reading questions AFTER school hours when we can be doing something useful and fun.

I really hate home work on the first day of school because everyone hates homework wye can't the teachers realize that.

I do not like homework.

3 The realisation you have to do mathematics again

I know math is important but man is it boring.

4 It's still summer

I remember how my school would start in early September after Labor Day (which is still late summer) from 2012 until 2014, then they moved it to late August in 2015 and I was pissed at how short my summer that year was because I got out in late June (instead of early June like I do now) and started 4th grade on 8/24/2015. August is probably the hottest month of the year, so I don't understand why school starts this early.

Summer break should be June 21 to September 21 so it makes sense! Plus, I won't have to go to school on my birthday since it's still summertime.

Your going back to school when its still SUMMER! Why not back to school on the first day of fall?

In my school, there are 130 average working days every year. The school in which my cousin studies has 254 days.

5 Seeing the back to school commercials

Feels like the internet is rubbing it in your face.

I'm like "enough already." Let the parents deal with the shopping, not the T.V..

Every time I see those commercials, I want to destroy my TV or phone.

Whenever I see one of these, I just want to punch the TV and scream my head off

6 You're surrounded by idiots

I lost the great time I had in 7th grade. I had friends including a better PE gang, Theatre and PE class, relationships with girls, cool teachers, and a lot of good things last year. But now I can't do these things anymore as most of my friends are separated and I can't go to PE and Theatre this year because "tHeY aRe NoT oFfErEd FoR eIgHt GrAdErS", and I am exploding with many tests/quizzes per week that made me worry about grades except for algebra, which I was really good at by getting hundreds.

Even worse, I had to sit with an idiotic group at my Communications class, who always spread false rumors about me including that I'm "gay" even though I'M NOT. Every time I mention something, they go like "OH YOU LIKE LIL NAS X!", even though I don't. I'm tired of hearing it every day and it's getting old. They yelled out the false rumor a few times. They also have other lies about me such as making love with old women and that I'm a noob on Fortnite, ...more

I hate dealing with those immature, narcissistic, popular kid bullies who spread false rumors about me and make fun of me for being myself. There are far more idiots at my school than those who are intelligent (like me). I hate how I'm forced to interact with those snobs when I'm in priso- I mean school.

Those dumb kids.. always looking over at your paper and all... LIke, pay attention. What do you do when your here for 7hrs a day?

When you look around and you are forced to look at the faces of idiots.

7 Your teachers

My Maths Teacher used Microsoft IE but my other teacher Says when I say I don't want to be in school "Do your work now or else you do it in playtime. You have to be in school." I. wish this thing that mind controls people to like it doesn't exist, they make your parents give you extra HOMEWORK :( no fair.

On the first day of school, I'm always afraid that I'm going to get stuck with a mean teacher

8 "Let's Introduce Ourselves"

I hate having to do these. Why can't we just say our names instead of having to speak about ourselves and talk about what we do in our free time and stuff? Get to know you activities just make people nervous and are just a useless waste of time. If you're introverted and anxious like me, it's going to be hell.

This is always my worst nightmare. I always get anxious when speaking in front of the class and this feels like a torture method to someone who was diagnosed with general or social anxiety. I'd rather be drawing in my notebook than speak in front of the class and have someone notice I'm not neurotypical.

I hate these! They're just a way for kids to bully each other rather than get along with each other! If you're shy or introverted like me, then you're going to have a hard time.

Yeah, if you say something unpopular prepare to get bullied for the rest of the school year.

9 Can't sleep

I never get excited about going back to school, but I somehow can't sleep on the night before the 1st day.

You will have to go back to school and you will never sleep.

10 You realize you have 10 months of excruciating pain ahead of you

Scratch the word "excruciating" and put "crucifying".

The Contenders
11 It's too crowded

On the first day your crowded with a bunch of students that are trying to go to there class. It's a pain.

Claustrophobic people beware.

12 No more play time

When you go back to school you can't play with any of your toys (whether you film it or not). I'm 15 and it's a way of helping me calm down. :(

13 Your friends
14 Waking up to the fact that school is back in session.
15 No Internet
16 You don't work and can't learn anything yet
17 You know you'll see people you hate again

I hate going back and dealing with the jerks who picked on me the previous school year.

I hate going back because then I have to deal with the annoying kids and those flexers.

Having to see old jerks again always sucks.

18 It's very boring

I really wish we can sleep.

19 Everyone remembers what you did last year
20 Getting in trouble
21 The first 2 month always take forever to end
22 You feel dumb

I always feel dumb

23 It still feels like school is out

People wonder why I don't do well in the first few month of school, but I feel that this is exactly why. My brain is still on autopilot by the time it's first day of school.

Not only that summer is still around when school starts, to some kids, it's going to feel like school is still out. So some people will act stupid before autumn. Or they'll act stupid for the rest of the year if summer gets to their brains.
