A Day in the Life of a Student

My 10 year old son wrote a creative writing piece as part of his home work that I just had to post here. It has some interesting insights into the lessons of life he might be imbibing at this age. So here it is with due permissions from my son to post it on my blog (with corrected spellings).

A day in the life of a student

As everyone knows that student life is difficult, I would first plan my day so that I don’t have to plan it afterwards. I would go to school, do my homework. But it isn’t as easy as it looks like. Some ma’ams (teachers) give hectic homework which makes my brain heavy as a kilo, and some ma’ams are so sweet that I get overconfident for the UT (Unit Test) she has made and I get bad marks. Some are both so I get confused is she strict or sweet.

There are always two choices, a bad side or a good side. The bad side is full of cool guys and bullies while the good side is full of kids who only study! Half of the bad side becomes prefects and a quarter of the good side become prefects. This student life is so confusing.

So a day in the life of a student if hectic, difficult, confusing and weird.

:) He has summarized not only student life, but life in general! I wonder if we or our parents had any such realizations when we were this young...

Agree with Taruna! Isn't this life in general! Your son is so wise!!!

He has indeed summed up life's lesson in cherubic innocence. Wizard:)

As good old Calvin said,"I go to school, but I never learn what I want to know".

Well, it was nice to see that there are children out there who can think like this.
