I don't remember my first day at school, but judging by the expressions of these kids, they're sure going to remember theirs. As you can see from these funny before and after pictures compiled by Bored Panda however, they didn't all look so unhappy to begin with. Some of them look positively excited to be attending their first day of class. But school can do strange things to a kid, which is why they all look so fed up, traumatized, and in some cases shell-shocked by the end of the day. Still, just wait until they get to high school...

Picture him in a suit and tie, and this is how most of my co-workers look by the end of the day.
