Junior High [Daily Prompt: Fifteen Credits]


Another school semester will soon begin. If you’re in school, are you looking forward to starting classes? If you’re out of school, what do you miss about it — or are you glad those days are over?  Photographers, artists, poets: show us LEARNING.  via Daily Prompt: Fifteen Credits.

The Fall/Autumn air that begins so suddenly at the end of August every year always brings me back to my anticipations of returning to school for another year.  I have been out of school for sometime now but that feeling never goes away.

I miss Junior High School the most.  I loved picking out those specific outfits for each day of the first week of school.  It was as if I was trying to make a statement to all the new and old friends I would encounter after that long, hot summer apart.

Junior High was the best years of my life.  I met all of my best friends there.  Seventeen years later, most of us are still the friends we were the day we met.  I miss the lack of grown up responsibility and the ability to run to a schoolyard for activities with my friends.

Those days are the days I wish I could have back.  These are the ones I would like to relive.  As for high school years, I am glad they are over.  Those years were tough on me at school and at home.
