    Too Cool For Eleventh Grade

    Three years ago i didn't pass tenth grade. I didn't cry, get depressed or anything. i just kind of deal with the fact i wouldn't be graduating this year. It's not the end of the world. People see this as a big deal, they think i don't  have this bright and shiny future in front...

    5th Grade

    I went from the easiest private school in the county to the hardest, naturally it was like skipping a year or two. I got a 59% the first time and a 58% the second time(they can't hold me back more than once for the same grade, so I got bumped up to 6th). Just goes to show...

    My Failings

    I failed the 10th grade. Not because I couldn't do the work, but because I was never there. This was during my early teens and my "emotional breakdown". I quit high school-never made it to 11th grade. I remember that some of the teachers were upset with me for quitting. However...

    A While Ago

    I stayed back as a junior-senior for half a year. I made up for it by failing my whole senior year and dropping out the last month of school. I did end up eventually getting my GED... a hell of a lot of good that did. I wish I'd have been smart enough to take school seriously and...
