I Graduated From High School

    Yeah

    I graduated and then immediately went to college. I was glad when it was done as I was at the absolute bottom of the social ladder (especially my freshman year). College was far better than high school as there is much more to do and people to meet.

    I graduated on June 12th 2007 and it wasn't easy. My high school had a 49% graduation rate. Meaning less than 1 out of 2 seniors would graduate. The administrators would get really picky and even a warning was liable to get you kicked out of the school i.e no diploma. Some people...

    Man I just barely passed. It wasn't that I couldn't hack it or wasn't smart enough. I just wasn't challenged enough. I got bored. I was always told, "You know if you applied yourself more you'd be on the Honor Roll". Well maybe if you actually challenged me, if you...

    My High School Experienence

     I think the reason why i had a pretty good high school experience was because my high school was so big. There were too many people for there to be one group of popular kids. And the kind of person I am, I don't like to be involved with just one group of friends. I had many...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    It wasn't that exciting, I don't think it really made a difference to me at all. I just didn't have to go to high school any more. I now look forward to my college graduation with the same feelings. I still haven't gone back to my high school to get my diploma.

    First In the Family

    I was proud because I was the first one in the family to graduate. Everyone in my family had good reasons not to. But it was a big thing to everyone in the family. It's all my grandma will talk about now when everyone gets together. Now they all ask when I will go on to college.
