I'd like to know about everyone's school days. What were your experiences?
For me..i always felt odd, out of place, weird, even as an elementary school student. I started to skip alot in HS becuz 1.) i had major "social anxiety" and 2.) i felt the traditional schooling system was a complete fucking joke. I knew, even back then, that it didnt really educate ppl as much as it conditioned them to be a certain way. When i did go to schoool, id usually skip lunch cuz i had no one to set with. Didnt wanna be setting in my huge ass cafeteria alone. Hmm..no friends hardly ever..certainly no true friends. I failed badly in my academics in HS becuz 1.) i was simply incredibly bored with them, and the way there were presented, and i never did homework and 2.) i was either not in class or when those big ass oral projects came up that were like a big percentage of ur final grade..id not do them cuz i had..ding ding ding..social anxiety, if u wanna call it that. so..naturally..i got shittty shitty grades in most classes. Funny thing is..i took a test one time, 9th grade, i was 14, and i scored as junior in college in the subject of reading comprehension. thought that was funny. but anyways, i ended up dropping out of hs for good in 03 i think..was supposed to graduate in 02. i got my ged in 04 and becuz i apparently did so well, i was given a scholarship, albeit a small one, to a local 2 yr college. I took it and I went. at first, it was great. i was so happy to be in a less structured schooling environment that colleges can sometimes offer. it felt so much more free than k-12 schooling. It was more intellectual and less system oriented structure. well..i made the deans list my first semester . but..unfortuneatly..and im not 100% why, even today, i grew bored with college after a few months and would only attend philosophy and political science out of amy 6 classes. I just couldnt make myself do the required work. I was and am certainly "smart" ( i hate that word, dont u? such a square term) enough to, but i just couldnt make myself do it. its lik emy mind was just floating around and would not allow me to set down and write that english composition essay or study for child psych. u know? so i dropped out at the end of 05. i do plan to go back, eventually, but this time things will be diff. maybe i wasnt ready, for whatever reason. idk. but this time..i wont be majoring in philosophy like last time..but rather some form of art. but anyways, tell us about your school experiences?
