5 Reasons Why School Sucks

August 20, 2017

Tomorrow is the first day of school in my area, and today my two daughters are miserable. When I was a kid, the day before the first day of school was worse than the first day of school. For some reason, I couldn’t think of anything else that day except that school was coming and that it sucked.
