Elementary Vs. High school

All of the things I will mention is base on my personal experience being an elementary and high school student. We went into different schools and each school has a unique way, so I am pretty sure all of us has a different experience in school.

When I was a kid I wish I am already a high school student so that I am tall, I can have more pocket money. But when I entered high school I wish I can go back to elementary wherein you can play every lunch break, lunch break is longer, and activities are lesser. I thought elementary and high school life is the same but my expectation is not a reality.


Being an Elementary Vs. High School Student

Canteen

A canteen is a crowded place every break time. I remember when I was in elementary we line up and patiently wait for our turn to buy. When I became high school 'line' is a useless word. On the first day of school (when I was in grade 7) I didn't expect that the canteen will be crowded that much. I can barely move my body. In the end, I only bought a bottle of water. I tell about this to my brother and he told me 2 tricks to avoid a crowd of people. First, you needed to be earlier than your break time if your teacher dismissed you early you are lucky if not just cry Lol. The second way is to wait, if your teacher dismissed you so late then you don't have a choice but to wait for the people to buy their snacks. But this way is not good because there are no left cooked snacks all you can buy is just a biscuit and you only have few minutes to enjoy your snack.

Subjects

ESP (Edukasyon Sa Pagpapakatao) is not a joke. If you can get a perfect score/high score in ESP every test when you are in elementary then when you will become high school you will be shocked. I always got a high score when I was in elementary but when I am in high school I only got more than 15-25/60. Sometimes you feel your answer is right but it's wrong, sometimes you feel your answer is wrong so you change it but it's correct and sometimes all of the choices is right so your only way to answer is minie-minie-miney-mo. Lol

Activities

When I was in elementary activities and homework is very rare they always discuss/let us write the lesson in our notebook. When I was in grade 7 group activity is always and many output and assignments. I remember our science teacher who always gives us output, in the end of the school year we have a total of more than 40 activities on our folder. The folder is thicker than my face Lol. We spent many Manila papers for group activities and also markers. While our math teacher is one of a fan who always gives activities but he is my favourite teacher he always connects his life to our lesson, sad to say he is in the hospital right now. If yesterday he discusses the lesson this day is an activity. My notebook is full of his activities I even use 2 notebooks. Lol

Lunch break is shorter

When I was in elementary lunch break is more than 1 hour but in high school is just 1 hour. I remember we went into our classmate house to eat lunch and it is a little far from school. We enjoy eating lunch without worrying about our time. We use my classmate watch to see the time but the watch is late than the real-time. We run so fast to enter the gate of the school and immediately went into our room. But bad luck came, our teacher is earlier than us so we ended up answering the question 'Apay naladaw kayu?' (Why are you late?). No one talks and after few minutes she let us to seat and start the class. From that day I start to eat my lunch inside the room so that I will not end up late. Lol


It is in March when I last went to school I thought the virus will last for a week only but I am wrong. These days I miss going to school to meet my friends especially my crush Lol. I want to challenge myself to go to the canteen with a lot of people. I miss having many activities especially group activities. I miss the voice of a teacher talking in front of the class. I miss holding chalk and write on the blackboard. I miss stopping in a fishball stall to buy some fishball and gulaman juice before going home. While writing this article many things pop up in my mind. I miss going to school.

Reading your elementary and high school story make me reminisce my past experience when I'm in that age. It was good old days where no problem in your shoulder. Playing with friends while laughing all day. I just enjoy the day with my friends, roaming around. Playing different kind of things that can be your past time.

Your elementary days gave you those memories of how playful or reserved your were as a child while your secondary days showed you how much you transformed yourself as a teenager. Dun na ngka crush, and puppy love. 😬😍

I hated high school. It was always from home to school and school to home via the school bus, didn't make any friends, I was an extreme loner.

I only had much fun while in was in elementary school, we were still children so nobody judged anybody and the break times were always longer.
