Never in a million years would I have thought that there was anything I miss about school. I’ve went to a total of four and even though there were great things, I also have bad memories connected to each one of them. I never really fitted in anywhere, which can be hard. Still, I wanted to focus on the positive aspects of my fourteen years of school, although, I did focus most on the last school I went to, in order to finish my A-levels. I graduated ten years ago, which is insane, but have no problems remembering everything.
