I don't remember my first day of school, but judging by the expressions of these funny kids, they're sure going to recollect theirs. And as perplexed as they might look, it is an excellent opportunity for some funny school memes for us!

The first day of school can be pleasant or traumatizing for a small child, depending on what their expectations are and how well they were prepared for this new chapter. However, for these unlucky kids, after the first school day experience like this one, they probably won't be asking the dreaded question, "when is the first day at school?" anytime soon.

As you can see from these funny before and after pictures compiled by Bored Panda, some of these kids looked positively excited to be attending their first day of a new school year. However, education can do strange things to a kid, which is why by the end they looked fed up, traumatized, and in some cases shell-shocked. Still, elementary school is nothing compared to high school, so hang in there, kids! Scroll through our handpicked selection of the funniest first day at school memes and remember that we've all been there once.
