My One Hour Experience Of Waiting For My School Bus – A Guest Post.

Today I have a nine-year-old Mishty Sharma, my daughter’s namesake and friend from school as a guest blogger.

Her mother casually mentioned that she had written this essay while waiting for her school bus to arrive. I found her essay extremely honest. Kids are innocent and don’t shy away from sharing their true feelings.

After reading this essay I requested Mishty to share her work with my readers which she readily agreed. Do read and share your feedback. It will be encouraging for her.

My one hour experience of waiting for my school bus.

As usual at my regular time, I went down for the bus, we were waiting for the bus and 10min was passed but still, the bus didn’t arrive. I was watching the street dogs playing near our building gate, suddenly it started drizzling, I love rain so, I started playing with my umbrella and I heard my dad calling me and saying mom has said that “the bus is going to come late”. We went home, I saw that my mom was working in the kitchen, I asked her “can you play with me”? So she said I am quite busy right now go and ask your dad, I went and asked my dad so he said ok and played x and 0. As it was my mom’s favourite game she also joined us, we played three games and the bus Didi called Mumma and said to come down, we went down and I got into the bus and said bye to my dad and then the bus left.

I asked Didi ” Itna der kaise Laga”! So she said, “Kam Chal Raha Tha isliye” then I said “acha isliye”! My friend Miraya had came, we thought to play game so we played atlas, after half an hour we reached school, I was so so so happy that we missed the maths period as it was nine 0′ clock I really don’t like maths, as I went into the class everyone gazed at me and shouted so late ! It was La period going on so our teacher said “quiet !pay attention to the board. Today was my best day as we reached so late and missed the maths period.

I would like to Thank Mishty for being a lovely guest on the blog and sharing her experience with my readers.


  1. […] Mishty Sharma For Mishty: Dear Mishty, Hope your weekend went well and that you had time to spend with your friends. I went through your schedule and indeed it’s very hectic. I have a suggestion for you. While I completely agree with you that you are very young to be pressurized by studies and that certainly shouldn’t be the case, you should also develop a habit to study regularly. I personally also feel that unstructured physical activity ( playtime with friends in your building compound or garden) is equally important for your growth. So you should include it daily. I suggest you finish your studies by 6 p.m. daily and go to play with your friends. 2 hours of daily studies are good enough for a 10-year-old. However, you need to study a bit on Friday and Saturday too. If you do that you will not need to keep studying till 7 p.m. daily. You will surely finish your daily homework and extra studies within two hours. Another suggestion I would like to give you is to talk to your teachers and take their help during school hours to understand the topics taught in class if you face any difficulty. If you do that I think you will not need to spend too much time at home on the same and you can do a quick revision of the topics taught on a daily basis. Let’s try this for a month and tell us if that worked. Also, keep writing daily in your diary every night before you sleep and that will help you release all the bad thoughts you have. I would not like a 10-year-old to use words like ‘stress’ that’s not for kids. So enjoy your childhood, enjoy your studies. Take it as an opportunity to learn something new. Consider it as an opportunity to gain knowledge and you will enjoy the world of numbers, science, environment and languages. I would also like to tell you that going to school is not to get good grades in exams or secure medals in sports. It is to enjoy learning, build friendships and make beautiful life long memories. So enjoy your childhood. With lots of good luck and best wishes, Aesha. Also by Mishty: My One Hour Experience Of Waiting For My School Bus – A Guest Post. […]
