Growing up in Australia, I consumed A LOT of American TV shows, movies, music and books.
I'm especially trash for teen TV shows/movies/books, so I thought I knew everything there was to know about the Amercian school system.
Which is why I was absolutely SHOOK when I saw this tweet and learned that Americans start their school day at like 7 in the morning?!
I asked American people on Twitter to confirm if this were true, because I literally couldn't believe it. TURNS OUT IT IS!!
I was not the only Australia who was, to use the scientific term, shooketh.
For the record, my own school day started at 8.40am in primary school and 8.28am in high school. Most Aussie schools start after 8am, and frequently after 8.30am. A 7am start is MIND BLOWING and frankly seems cruel.
America, I don't know how you do it.
