    18 Things That We Did As Students That Felt Normal At The Time, But Are Actually Kind Of Odd

    Why were we so obsessed with the idea of our teachers hooking up?

    1. Had an unhealthy obsession with drawing dicks on everything.

    2. Covered school exercise books in wrapping paper.

    Who covered their school books in wallpaper or wrapping paper?...

    Why did we do this? And more importantly, why did no one question why we were doing this?

    3. Turned up in your best clothes on the first day of term.

    4. Walked past your friend's classroom and tried to distract them through the window.

    Walking down the school corridor and spotting your friend in a classroom was one of life's greatest pleasures, and making funny faces at them through the door was practically tradition.

    5. Attempted to get out of PE by accidentally-on-purpose leaving your kit at home.

    You probably tried every excuse under the sun to get out of PE – including purposely leaving your kit at home, but chances are you were forced to wear old, sweaty lost property instead…

    6. Came up with ridiculous excuses as to why you hadn't done your homework.

    “Sorry Sir, my neighbour’s best friend’s brother-in-law’s tortoise was on the loose and I had to help look for it.”

    7. Posted cringe Facebook statuses about every minor thing that happened at school.

    8. Tried to smuggle pads out of the classroom without anyone noticing.

    9. Made it your life purpose to prove that certain teachers were hooking up.

    10. And tried to get into the staffroom by any means necessary.

    11. Wrote boobless/boobies on your calculator at every opportunity and laughed for hours at your brilliance.

    Who remembers writing boobless on their calculator?

    You can’t tell me this wasn’t peak comedy back in the day.

    12. Hoarded the McDonald's bus vouchers like your life depended on it.

    And momentarily became the most popular kid in class when you dished out your spares.

    13. Took tactical sick days to avoid your least favourite class.

    14. Spent more time deliberating over WordArt fonts than the actual task at hand.

    15. Distributed chewing gum in class like it was a Class A drug.

    16. And paid older kids who could leave the school grounds to buy you snacks.

    17. Asked teachers about their personal lives during class to get out of doing work.

    18. Used MASH to predict your future.
