My GCSE choices made sense to me when I picked them in Year 8 (around the time I wanted to be a Journalist) but fast forward to end of Year 9 when I changed my mind to be a Primary School Teacher, Business Studies and Media Studies seemed like the wrong decision (Fast Forward 6 Years and it changed again!!)
I never went to my Year 11 Prom because that week I went on holiday with my family but to be honest, I don't care that I missed out. For a start my parents saved money as they didn't have to buy a dress and apparently it wasn't all that good anyway!! I also never brought the school photos. Only kept the slip that has the little samples on. After all, after year 7 they never put a watermark on them and the only nice ones are Year 7, 8 and 11. Over Year 9 and 10 I had braces and no fringe (trust me.. I look better with a fringe!!) so those photos are horrible!!
Honestly... I don't think I would want to change any part of Secondary School. Sure some bits sucked but the good outweighs the bad and it sounds corny but its true, I am who I am because of my experiences in that bright blue blazer (which I still have and still fits, I had the same blazer from year 7 to year 11 which means it must have been quite big in year 7!)
