    Bullies Suck!

    From grade 3 all the way up to about grade 6, I was quietly bullied by my "peers." I still have no idea why they hated me so much. It could have been a lot of things: I was new to that school in the 3rd grade, I was a shy kid and didn't talk much, I was very smart...

    I had written a not so fond experience some

    time last year, but deleted it, as it was insignificant, and sounded more like I was asking for pity, in which I wasn't. I feel comfortable disclosing what's on my heart, the good and the bad on EP, and it's nice to keep a certain level of anonymity. I was in high school...

    School, well that wasn't fun ever.

    Bullied, beaten up, attacked throughout my school life so much so my survival went up when I stopped going. No more beatings, no more pain - the local town was great - spent most of my days in the end on the beach or playing Pac Man and ninja turtles :-)

    Yep

    Did you ever have to show up for school without school supplies? Did you ever go to the first day of a new grade wearing last years clothes? Did the teacher ever ask you to stand in front of the class while she explained to the other little playground monsters that your family...

    Who doesn't? :p I was a little eccentric

    and it was difficult for me to make friends. I became less awkward my sophomore year, I think. I don't miss all the drama, that's for sure. And spreading of rumors. There was a rumor my senior year that I was lesbian. I just laughed it off. Better than having everyone think I...

    I Hated School

    I have only bad memories about school.  I never had friends. I was always alone. Not always, but most of the time at least. Those girls who were popular didn't like me. And those who were extremely "unpopular" were afraid of me. So I was stuck in between. However boys from...

    Like how I used to be bullied

    because I was almost at the edge of being obese. But that changed when I wanted it to change anyway. So even if that memory did affect my outlook of myself, even now, I'm thankful that I didn't need to endure that kind of crap as soon as I had started high school.

    Ever since I entered college, endless of requirements must be fulfilled. I never wanted this kind of thing. I want to do something that won't stress you out and at the same time not boring. Well, college is the opposite of that. I don't like school. Period.

    Unhappy Would Be A Step Up For Me.

    Pure HELL, would be more accurate. Getting picked on by the other kids and ostricised for being different was bad enough. GettingĀ picked on by the teachers was FAR WORSE. NO PUBLIC SCHOOL FOR MY KIDS!!!!
