School has started

I wouldn’t have cared much but it really affects my morning commute to work.

This summer it took me 20 minutes to get to work, now it takes me 20 minutes to get on a bus. I had to skip the first bus today because it was really crowded. I got on the second one but got off at the first stop because it got crowded as well and I had to wait for the third bus just to have a decent ride to work.

I won’t even start on all the stupid things teenagers talk about these days.

During my days in school (yup, talking like it was ages ago) I was on auto pilot all the way to school and during our first classes. Heck, I still use my auto pilot to get to work. Where the hell do girls these days find the energy to put on make-up (professionally looking by the day), eat and even hang out with friends before school starts at 8AM?

First day of school

Seeing a lot of kids in uniform, with flowers and with their parents (this are the primary school kids I’m talking about) made me to realise two things:

  1. Today is the first day of school
  2. And, from today on till the end of the school year, public transportation will be crowded not only with old people that just like taking rides but also with kids, a lot of kids.

Again, I’m so happy that I use the subway.

It still feels weird seeing children going to school, even after 4 years from finishing high school. I guess that there are still things that I miss from my “school days”, but then again there are things that I don’t miss at all. Like waking up at 6 in the morning during winter just to go to school… wait I still do that, except now I go to work and I can’t even skip a day or two. At least I don’t have to wear an uniform.

At least the weather is great, not to hot and not to cold. Perfect way to start a new week and a new school year. I was thinking, maybe I should pass by my old high school today, to see what’s new around there, cause I’m sure a lot of things have changed.
