    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...
