    3. Taking great pride in decorating your books and lockers each year.

    4. Getting recess breaks after one or two long hours of class.

    5. Not to mention, guaranteed 45-minute lunches.

    6. Finishing no later than 3:30 p.m. every day.

    7. And you'd always get home before it got dark.

    9. Not having to call or email in for a sick day.

    10. Not having the pressure of thinking of what to wear every morning.
