What Grinds My Gears...About Going Back to School

On September 27, 2011

In this first issue of "What Grinds My Gears," I've asked students what bothers them the most about being back in school. From being a newbie to getting fined, these students had a lot to say about what ticks them off.


"What grinds my gears about going back to school is to try and adapt to the work load all over again."Noelle Charles, Freshmen


"… trying to start all over again and being fresh meat. I miss being a Senior."Toyin Ben-Shidah, Freshmen


"Waking up early for morning classes and not having time to eat breakfast." – Mabel Oppong, Freshmen


"…not being able to stay up late and blog on Tumblr." Rachelle Jeanty. Freshmen


"Homework and nasty cafeteria food." Sabreen Abdullah, Sophomore

"Buying books when teachers only use slide shows."Devika Hudson, Junior


"The long days, since I've crammed all my classes into three days."Alysia Virkler, Junior


"Getting fined for dumb stuff like being charged fifty dollars for having an outlet in my room." -Trisha Bartholomew, Sophomore
