School Syndrome


Do you remember in school when the clock would say 2:30 and class got out at 2:35 so you started putting things away and packing your backpack just so you wouldn't miss the exit time of exactly 2:35?

I totally did this. Through high school and college. I remember Mrs. KJ in senior English yelling at all of us to sit back down because we had 4 more minutes of class. But that bell meant freedom, flirting, and note passing.

In college it meant racing to the next class, running into that cute boy you pass daily on the quad, or running home to watch 'Somebody Like You'. But still when it was within minutes…you were packing to get ready.

Well I just noticed that I totally have this same school syndrome. It's 4:00 which means it's almost 5:00 which means "quittin' time" so I feel like it's time to get ready to go home.
Yep. It's time to finish up my random projects, check all email accounts, stack all my papers (for the appearance of busy), and cross off things on my to-do list. This is the best time of day.

"No I can't meet to talk about that project. I need to get ready to go...I only have 59 minutes to prepare."

I totally hear ya! I am the same way at school. Kids scurry out at 2:45- contract time is until 3:15. I'm so outta here right then. What happened to my ambibition of being a first year teacher? Oh, thats right. I have a horrible class, I'm pregnant, and I'd rather be home with my husband.
