    Autumn: A Walk Down Memory Lane It always

    feels like Autumn. With a false air of confidence, I step out of the comfort of my car and into the cool leafy breeze. I sling my bag over my shoulder and begin to march up that smooth, black, paved hill, under the scattered shade of the tall, golden-yellow and leafy trees...

    Dark Little Angel

    My senior year of high school was spent with me not dating, but surrounding myself with adorable girls. I found them all very important to me and attractive in their way, but none of them got my juices flowing. Funny since it was a school of 2000 kids and I had moved their a year...

    All My Life

    I have been bullied all my life ever since I was in elementary school. I was bullied both here and in my homeland in the Philippines. The reason why is because I'm weird, I talk to myself, and that I am a very childish person. I started going to high school here in California...

    Have you ever felt ugly, unwanted, unpopular, weird, or uncertain about who you are and where you fit in in life? Well, I have. As a teenager in my Senior year in high school, my life sucked! Although I was very well known, I didn't have any friends in high school. Those whom I...

    I live really close to the high school. Whenever I walk/drive by, all I can think is, "HA!" I hated high school. And, you know, high school students **** me off. I constantly get attitude from them... They think they're so... I don't know. You got drunk and...

    Never Want to Go Back

    I do not understand people who say they wish they could go back to the time they were in high school.  It was a drama event each day. Being in high school was the worst time of my life.  There is so much you don't know.  So much to have to learn and learning it...

    Graduated high school about a month ago. I’m glad to be out and excited for college. It’s a stepping stone to my future and I know I’ll have a lot more freedom in college than in high school.

    I left school 32 years ago.

    Words can't describe how much I hated High

    School. That's probably the reason why I only showed up once or twice a week. It still surprises me how I managed such good grades. Eh, even the AP classes were ridiculously easy. -_-

    Worst 4 Years of My Life

    I hated high school. I went to a small school where everyone knew everybody and if you weren't friends with the right people, the others would make it hell. Everything was so petty. Even the teachers seemed to hold grudges. When I hear people say "I miss high school" I...

    A Nightmare!

    I was the nerd... not surprising. But somehow, I was the lowest nerd around. The bullies picked on me first, before they bothered the other nerds... and the other nerds often stood up for me, from time to time, yet they refused to hang out with me. Because I was too nerdy, even...

      OMG it was awlful. I was not popular, my family was not wealthy by no means that there was enough to make it miserable. Kids are mean! The meanest people in the world. If you are "differant" or don't dress in the same style THEY do. Then your life is hell in...
