Photo Meme: Day 3 - Red  
Wow, this one wasn't so obvious, huh. I do have a few items of clothing that are red and there are also some other red thingies around the house but none of them are really something I'd want to take a pic of and share, hee :D

And today finally the DUH moment came, lol :D

Ta-da, this is my primary school! It's only 2 mins walk from my home :D In Poland schools are identified by numbers rather than names - this was/is Primary School No. 50. It doesn't exist anymore in the sense that currently it's Junior High School No.16 and High School No. 13.

I was class 1986-1994 :D And it's always been this huge red brick building, they've renovated it a few years ago but didn't cover any of the original bricks, just cleaned them up, replaced the damaged ones but overall the building still looks the same (it predates WWII).

Also, we have insane weather today - full-blown spring with sun and blue sky and warm temperature :D I've seen ppl in t-shirts, lol - which I think was a bit of an overkill but still, awesome weather :D

Wow, that is one big school... or is this common where you live?

You know, it kinda is common, mainly because Szczecin is an old city and many of the buildings are very old, obviously they've been renovated and all but still the architectural style is pretty specific. And most of the schools are housed in buildings which were built and used for different purposes before they were adapted as schools.

You can obviously find smaller schools, even some that more resemble the US style but most of them are big ass buildings. And it's the same in all larger cities in Poland :D

W0W. That's huge! How many kids were in your class?

The only place I now in the states that uses numbers instead of name (or maybe both?) is NYC. There it's P.S. and then a number.

We definitely had larger classes, if I remember correctly, there were 26-27 kids in my class :D Primary school was 8 years and there were usually 4 classes each year. So technically, you had 32 classes at once :D But obviously the building had the capacity for it :D

Also? also some other red thingies around the house but none of them are really something I'd want to take a pic of and share

As a lover of all things old and socially historical, I adore this...

This is awesome! My old elementary school (the one I was at the longest, at least) actually burned several years ago. It apparently gutted the inside, so the school district is using it to store books, etc., instead of actually rebuilding it for use as a school. I thought that was kinda sad, but things happen. That's awesome that yours was in such a big old building!!
