Old School

When I was sorting through some of my Dad’s old paperwork, I found a folder in his filing cabinet with my name on it. Inside were a lot of my old school and college reports. I hadn’t realised that he’d kept them (although possibly given his filing system he may not have realised that they were still there).

I pulled a few out at random and it reminds me pretty much of how I felt about school and college. Latterly I didn’t really enjoy school very much, although college was much more interesting to me (probably because I was specialising in the subjects that were of most interest to me). My teachers seemed to think I was good in class but not very good at exams (which is pretty much how I remembered it).

I’m not sure whether or not I’ll keep them, for now they’re back in the filing cabinet.

    Digitise and archive! These artefacts trigger stories and feelings. You never know, they may also become a part of your childrens art project. 🙂

  2. That’s cool. I love little surprises like that from the past. I’ve managed to stumble across a few from my dad as well.

    • I don’t know whether they were kept deliberately or just filled in the cabinet and forgotten, but it was kind of nice to find them again.
