    People Who Actually Come Out Alive Should Be Rewarded!

    I feel like I was such a dork,

    geeky goofball in high school. I wasn't popular, hardly ever talked to by boys, made fun of my them when they did talk to me, and I never got asked out to prom or any dance/ social school event. Wish they could see me now. I'm so much better inside and out.

    Barely, I Guess...

    Between junior high being a living hell, and between the extreme lonliness and depression I often felt in high school, its a wonder I made it through. There were many many times when I thought I was ready to do something irrational and likely deadly... But didn't. I dunno. Maybe...

    I Never Thought I Would

    I was a social outcast. The lonely girl at the corner. The girl who eats her lunch alone. The only girl in the school,perhaps,who never had a boyfriend. The ugliest girl in school. I am a loser. I am lame, pathetic and sad. High school years were tough years. Years when I grew to...

    Freshman Year Was The Worst

    High school was horrible; I hardly learned anything with the system being so bad. The only time when learning really began was in college being around people who actually taught along with others who wanted to be there.

    I Look Back And Wonder Who The Hell Was That Girl..

    High school was definitely not the best time of my life. I have many amazing memories, and tons of friendships from it, but that’s about it. I always wanted to fit in. That was my motivating factor in almost everything I did for the 3 years I was in high school (skipped a year...

    I Suvived...finally

    I was not "cool" in high school.  I had a couple girl friends, but stuck to that group and didn't really reach out to anyone else.  Everyone probably thought I was stuck up and arrogant because I was so shy. In fact, I was so shy - and especially anxious, that once...
