10 Signs You Rode The Bus To AND From School As A Child

Worst and best times of your childhood.

10 Signs You Rode The Bus To AND From School As A Child

I rode a bus from the time I started school until I was able to drive to school. I honestly hated it and was always jealous of my friends who were driven by their parents. Here are 10 signs that you rode the school bus.

1. You knew other neighborhoods like the back of your hand

Especially if you were first to be picked up and last to be dropped off, you knew where everyone lived and how to get there as well as how their neighborhoods were mapped out. Useless knowledge thinking back.

2. You were lucky if you got dropped off/picked up from your driveway

I was lucky, but others had to walk to their bus stop.

3. You had to wake up a lot earlier than other kids who didn't ride the bus

And you were always enviousness of that.

4. The back of the bus was prime seating

That's where the older kids sat and it was always intimidating until you finally reached that age and got to sit back there.

5. Fire drills were extremely annoying

Especially if you were picked to be the one to basically carry the little kids down onto the ground.

6. You always thought your bus driver was a terrible driver

It always seemed like a mailbox was going to be taken out.

7. You fell up or down those steps into the bus at least once

And your bus driver freaked out when it happened.

8. That hand signal from the bus driver telling you to cross the street

Classic. Only happened if you had to cross the street. Then you had to wait until the bus drove away until you could go to your house.

9. The weirdness of not having a seatbelt

Seems logical enough to have 30 kids without a seatbelt.

10. Having to help the substitute find your house.

Literally, the worst days is when there was a substitute bus driver.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
