Back to School

OLMC in 1882

OLMC in 1882

If you are mall shopper like me, you can see the hustle and bustle going on for back to school shopping. From grades 1st through 8th I only the pleasure of buying supplies since I went to Our Lady of Mount Carmel and was given a uniform. I was always ready to go back to school…did that make me a geek? Whenever I ask kids now they look at me like “are you crazy, I don’t want the summer to end”. After surveying many teens, of course my curiosity got the best of me. I was told by a 12 year old that it is a “generation thing”. I wasn’t sure if I agreed with that so I called my sister (who is my generation) and she thought school is so much harder today than it was years ago back in the dinosaur days that we went. I guess I do have to agree with that, it does appear that there is more homework given and kids with all their sports/activities are having a hard time getting to the unimportant studies. I think today kids are given too much to put on their plates by both parents and teachers. There are more stressed kids today then ever…sad. So in conclusion…I guess I wasn’t a geek, I was just fortunate enough to grow up when school/life was easier. I don’t think I even knew what stress meant until much later in life…whew!
