For high school students, what's your gym class like? For you old folk, what were your gym classes like? This is the first time I've had gym class in almost a year. Through grade school, my gym teacher just put out a soccer ball and let us go nuts. My middle school teacher was very nice to me. Being the runt of the class, she looked out for me, and I really appreciated that. I also realised that she really got me into the habit of running daily-- it's a good exercise. Right now, I'm in "Health & Fitness", and it's pretty much a classroom course four days a week with watered-down misinformation of health. The other one day per week is the fitness part of the course, which basically means I attempt to play frisbee with seven meatheads and/or stoners while the girls converse in the center of the field. When I can afford the loss of points, I will "forget" my gym clothes, which means I can't participate, but I'll convince my teacher to let me get some homework done for her class. Occasionally, they'll fold all of the health classes of the period into one for fitness, making it a total of about 70 kids, letting us do whatever we want while they teacher-chat. I decided to just show up for roll call and then cut class today, since we were on "street-surfing" boards, and a permission slip was required, but I forgot mine, which meant that I would've sat on a bench for 70 minutes. I got more exercise walking around campus, at least, and none of the teachers even noticed I left. So, for me, gym class is a necessary evil.
