    I Didn't Know What An Adverb Was...

    In the 4th grade I had this teacher who was very mean and intimidating.  She was scary and mean, and she made a lot of her students cry.  In english (or language arts I think it's what it was called), we were learning the 'parts of speech' - nouns, pronouns, verbs...

    Embarrassing.

    It wasn't the first time I had cried in school, but it is my most embarrassing because I cried in front of, at least, 20 people. I was in 10th grade (Yeah, don't make fun of how old I was) and we had presentations to do. I, of course, forgot about it, and didn't bring anything...

    It was embarrassing, I couldn't stay in class. It was painful, and I have never felt so insecure. Why the **** do people find it ok to mess with other people? I was sitting in my chair, trying to do my work. All I hear is this obnoxious guy next to me, he had been talking the...

    Always

    I have always cried at school. I have cried at every school I've ever been in, from preschool, all the way through college. Until middle school, the crying was usually because of the way the other students were treating me and being out of my element (a.k.a. away from home). I...

    I WAS pretty known in my school

    as a cry baby. I'm not the type person who gets bullied and stuffs but I'm just too sensitive. I really can't concentrate in school because of my family issues. People were afraid of me because they were afraid that they would make me cry.

    Not Over Grades

     Just over a girl.  Like many manly men, I have a feminine side to me.  There are things that make me cry, like being tackled real hard during a football game.  The time I tore my fingernail off by mistake.  That really hurt and bled like hell.
