      Not really. I had a few subjects I liked but most I hated, and I didn’t have so many friends. Fortunately, I did finish school and life after it was much better!

      I did like school quite a bit. I loved learning new things all the time.

      Like most things it had its ups and downs. I really used to love science though and I suppose that set me up for what I do now 🙂 Try to do what you enjoy and then work can become fun too! Belive in yourself as well, you can do things 🙂 even if it goes wrong the first time. We have made mistakes in spaceflight that led to loosing astronauts in the space shuttle challenger disatser, which were bad days, but fixing mistakes and trying again and making it better the next time around is more important than making a mistake.. then you can have awesome days, like when they fixed the space shuttle after the accident and starting launching it again.

      HI @568nch28,

      Yeah I did. I loved learning and was always curious. Like most people, I didn’t enjoy every subject, but I loved all the science subjects, psychology, P.E and Geography. I was a bit of a chatterbox though and sometimes would get told off for talking too much :p
