Im in College now and it rocks! because you get to do what course you want..
School wasn't that bad because you could hang around with your mates and think about being off Every single day it would suck unless your mates are off too... But it's a good way to make friends. Lessons suck but if you have a group of friends who just like to insult people that hour goes fast lol ^^
Plus if you actually listen in school you'll get a good job [If you go College etc] and you can have fun when your older and have Money xD
I'd say 18 - 28 is a good time to have fun
So school doesn't suck that bad really.... Apart from Uniform
