As kids are heading back to school today after Easter Holidays, I thought – Why not be rebellious and do a piece on not wanting to go back.
I personally HATED school as a kid but I never seemed the rebellious type. I must have been screaming on the inside because every morning right before we reached the last traffic light before the campus, my stomach would knot, churn and do a double flip – I would have paid anyone ANY amount of money to take me away from that place. No smoking in the toilets, binge drinking or making out in the corridors was involved.
When I was really young, I used to fake illnesses and since I wan’t half bad as an actress, I’d get away with it most of the time and enjoy my fish sticks glued to the TV alone for the rest of the day. Later on, I did however learn to cut class, surprisingly with my mother’s consent. (Be jealous, my mom was cool like that, she was openminded about letting me cut class as long as there was good reason and nothing important to miss). So there you have it. I picked out the most rebellious images I could find of those people I used to envy for having the guts to show what I din’t dare to : how they felt on the inside.
