    Class Of 1957

    High school was a formative time for me. I changed from toy trains to real model railroading. I found math could be fun but I was not really good at it. I found writing could be fun and and was way less objective about doing it just so. (My senior year I was staff on the weekly...

    I Graduated From High School.

    I was not a motivated student in high school, yet I still managed to graduate in the top 90% of my class. I chose not to plan any type of reception to celebrate commencement from years of conditioning. This of course requires an explanation. While growing up many times I would...

    I graduated on time in 2012.

    My journey to graduating, however, was a difficult one. When I was in my junior year in 2011 I had pretty much given up on school. I was home schooled, and that caused me to isolate myself from people. It got to the point where I was scared to talk to people. I also had a hard...

    I graduated when I was sixteen.

    High school was easy for me. Nobody bothered me for anything other than help because everyone thought I was crazy and the classes were alright. I didn’t fancy a few people, but I didn’t have any enemies or anything. In fact, I think the closest thing I’ve ever had to an...

    A Half-semester Late (shh My Lil' Secret)

    I was to graduate in 2000, and I did at Christmas right before the end of the year; but it wasn't easy. Not because of classes or anything, but because of politics, growing up, and me being a super-lazy procrastinator. Went to the high school where I was raised, our school...

    Most people feel that this should be an

    accomplishment but since I slacked my way through I wish I could go back and re-do every year. Though I know that I can't do that, I'm stuck living with my bad choices. Ahh, karma is going to be a *****.

    i Remember When I Graduated...

    i remember when i graduated. i actually got a real applause! well, figuring the administration people really wanted me to fail, and i didn't, was fulfilling. but not as fulfilling as walking outside, lighting up a cigarette, and telling my school superintendant to **** himself.

    What They DON"T Teach You In School

    Rule #1: Life is not fair. Get used to it. The average teen-ager uses the phrase, “It’s not fair” 8.6 times a day. Rule #2: The real world won’t care as much about your self-esteem as much as your school does. It’ll expect you to accomplish something before you feel...
