Come tomorrow, I will have 18 school days left.

What a crap year. It seemed to have dragged in really slowly, but I can't believe its just about over.

13 years of school ending in 18 days time - shock and happiness.

Its supposed to be 18 days for me but I am moving to Kirkcaldy a week on Friday so I don't know how many days of the last two weeks I will miss. My dad has said he can drive me in to school though so I'll come in for a few of those days, Tuesdays are probably most important for me.
It is quite an event after going to school for almost all our lives, it will be over. At the moment I'm not feeling sorry though. It's time to move on to become an adult rather than sharing a school with people that are mostly half as developed - both physically and intellectually.

I think I've got about 18 days left, too. And it's totally weird.

I really looked forward to 6th year, and at the beginning it was pretty fun but after a few weeks it became uber boring. I really want to leave but I'll miss school. And I'll miss the people that I'll never see again (even though I don't even like half of them).

I've become SO apathetic towards schoolwork and 6th year duties.. it all seems so trivial.

Can't wait for Muck-Up day though!! ;P

Yeah it's come to a point where I'm ready to move on too.

I'll look forward to uni, but it's still quite surreal that that's school finally over!

yep, mr inglis was rather kewl. never had him as a teacher, other than one or 2 days miss hutcheson (oh yes, i had her for standard grade german) was off. oh, & mr inglis only came to our school mid-way through when i was in s3.

leaving school is the best thing ever though, i was definitely glad to leave by the end of 6th year. be warned though, the novelty of uni soon wears off - by the time you get to christmas, you'll feel the same way you do now, when you wake up in the morning & go "noooooo" when you realise its a weekday. but the initial "ooooh uni" thing is good at first. & leaving school, well, yeah its sad, & i still do miss things about it (the music department for one thing, & the teacher i had for physics in 5th & 6th year), but its amazing how quickly you adapt. i so can't believe its a year since i was leaving - feeling old now!

I can't wait aswell. School is really crappy at the moment. And some people are starting to piss me off.

So can't wait to get to uni and meet new people and start my course. smile.gif

It is quite weird though that we're 'adults' now.

Do you think you've made the wrong course/uni choice?

Or do the majority of students experience this?

I wasn't really sick of school this time last year, but I suppose I was ready for a change. Uni did seem different to begin with, but eventually you just get used to it being different and get into a new routine. At least, that's my experience smile.gif

i definitely don't think i went to the wrong uni. i really do like the actual uni itself. i do have "i wish i'd moved away from home" moments every so often, but thats mainly just me wondering what it'd be like not to have parents around all the time. but this time last year, i really couldn't have contemplated moving away, starting uni was scary enough as it was! plus, i really like glasgow as a city, nowhere compares to it for me, so staying at home was the right thing to do.

i do, however, quite regularly doubt that i'm doing the right course. i think everyone does sometimes though, if they tell you otherwise their either lying, or are totally amazing at the subject they're studying. but at 2am, when you've been up since 7, & you're still struggling through that report thats due for the next day, you're not human if you don't have some doubts! everyone will tell you that uni is hard work. you won't believe them now - i didn't. but it is. its like all things though, if it was easy, it wouldn't be worth doing cos everyone would be doing it! & i'm hanging on to this shaky belief that it'll be worth it in the end.....

Yeh think about it. Its the same with Highers. The teachers say its hard and u'll have to work but you don't believe them but guess what, they are hard. I am struggling to choose a uni course. The deadline I set myself is tomorrow so I'll have to make a choice now.

I want to leave school and go to uni but I don't want my friends to leave me. One of them is going to uni in Edinburgh which is quite near but one is off to America mad.gif .

I'll miss some of the teachers but not many. Most of all I'll miss those casual acquaintances that I never got to make friends with, those who I connected with but didnt get their mobile numbers, those I lost connact with and always meant to make up with. I'll miss this era of my life.
