Did you go to secondary/high school near to where you lived?[Why?/Why not?]
Yes, my high school was only two blocks away from where I was living at that time.Hereby, I did not need to spend as much time as some of my classmates did by taking public transports. Students living pretty far away from our high school had to get up extremely early every morning. While they were standing in a huge crowd on the subway,I was probably still dreaming.
