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.
