Small Talk Six on Saturday

It's Saturday!! Welcome to another edition of Small Talk Six hosted by http://www.momdot.com/blog/category/memes/small-talk-six/
Please go and visit for more great posts.

This weeks topic is “6 things you loved or hated about school.”

You can answer this with a list of 6 words, 6 phrases, 6 sentences, 6 paragraphs, 6 photos, 6 videos, etc . .

I am going to focus on my high school years, aka "The worst four years of my life"

1. I loved my little group of friends
2. I hated taking 2 buses to get to the school
3. I hated studying of any kind.
4. I hated the pressure to get good grades
5. I HATED my gym teacher(my Mom went to the same school, she was 40 when I was born and I had the same gym teacher she did(honestly). She was so old and mean, I used to feel sick the night before and try to think of ways to get out of it.)
6 I loved graduating and I loved college

This isn't "Coach Burdick" but it is close enough. This is how I remember her anyway lol.

Have a great weekend Anne

Your pic of Coach Burdick looks a lot like Freddy Kruger, did she have knives for fingers on one hand?

I think part of the requirements to be a gym teacher has to be a evil sense of humor. The only one I ever liked was a college soccer coach.

I would have rather had her! I was not the fittest kid in HS. My gym teach was super limber and expected us all to put the bottoms of our feet together and touch our nose on the floor. She made me feel fat.

holy cow that is one hot P.E. teacher, was she even able to do the activities with you?

It's funny how a teacher can have such an impact (positive or negative). For me it was my second grade teacher. She is just one of those people that shouldn't be teaching.

I'd be traumatized too if that were my gym teacher.
Have a great Saturday!

Wow 2 buses and a mean gym teacher not a good time. I hate high school too and was exstatic the day I graduated.


Kelly said...

I hated riding the bus too. I couldn't imagine having to take 2. Great List Happy STS.

I didn't like my gym teacher either. She didn't try to help the non jocks, just yelled at us for not being as good as them. What a "teacher."

i can imagine 2 buses did you go to large school

Staci said...

I couldn't stand my gym teachers either. My fingers are crossed that she's gone now and not still creeping kids out!
