The 11 Best Things That Ever Happened During School

Those days were the best days. Sure, you were probably too cool for school back in the day, but there were definitely times when you felt like nothing could be better. Here are those awesome moments for you to look back on.

1. That moment when you make it to your seat RIGHT as the bell rings.


There's nothing like playing it close AND winning!

2. When your teacher didn't show up during the first 10 minutes of class, so class was technically cancelled.


Party time!!! For the next 45 minutes or so, that is.

3. Or, when you had a substitute teacher.


Poor substitute teacher...

4. Nothing beats the days when your teacher straight-up didn't feel like teaching and just put on a movie instead.

5. Extended recess. It was like announcing that you had won the lottery.


Two things: extra recess, less class time. It's a win-win!

6. Pizza day in the cafeteria.


Pizza was delicious then, and it's delicious now. Don't hate.

7. Those times your teacher forgot about the homework that was assigned last night.


*nervous laugh*

8. Getting to go to lunch early. Times like these made everything worth it.


The hunger is real. So very real.

9. The day it was mandatory to sit boy-girl-boy-girl at lunch.


Everyone pretended to hate it, but you know you loved it.

10. Nothing was better than playing dodgeball during PE. Nothing. / Via

Except maybe getting smashed with the ball when you weren't paying attention. There's always a downside, huh?

11. And of course, everyone has a crazy story from show-and-tell day.


Oh, if only you could go back in time and do something like this.
