I Failed a Grade

    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...

    Kindergarden

    My early childhood was filled with issues that I had to handle. Some were emotional and some were health issues. My biological father was a very unstable man and there was a lot of fear in my early years. The fighting, violence and stalking was not easy to handle. I remember...

       My ninth grade year , or should I say, my first ninth grade year, was a kind of strange year.  The high school I had been going to, was reorganized to be a Jr. High..and all the students were divided among various other high schools.  I really hated the new...

    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...
