  4. Im a 14 year old girl, a freshman in September. I’ve always been one to stress over things, even if they’re far away. I’m a quiet person. I’m not very good at conversations..I’ve always been this way. I hate school. Our town’s school system is messed up, so the high school starts with 8th grade, so like the other kids in my grade, we became high schoolers a year earlier. I didn’t do so well this year. I was failing almost all of my classes slowly throughout the year. First quarter, i was only failing spanish and algebra..then as time passed, i began to fail physical science, gym (I hate group activities..) and almost fail chorus. I honestly do not know why i got a 72 in chorus ALL YEAR. My friends all got 90s and 100s. It’s not like I didn’t sing! Sure, I wasn’t going all Madonna during class, but neither did my friends. Maybe the teacher didn’t like me, although I don’t think it’s fair to give someone low marks just because you didn’t *Like* them. I didn’t act up in class or anything,

    I hated school my whole life. I didn’t even go to preschool because i literally cried the WHOLE time there, so my mom took me out. In 2nd grade, these boys always made fun of me and I didn’t have any friends. Literally did not have ANY friends to play with at recess or talk about barbies with at lunch. I barely even spoke. People would come up to me and deliberately ask “Why are you so quiet?” I would just answer with “I dunno..?” and feel offended. I was only 7/8 years old. While other kids were laughing and goofing off, I spent my recess on the swings by myself and sat alone at lunch. The only thing that really made me happy was girl scouts, which I did at the time.

    I finally made friends in third grade. Then some more throughout the years. I lost a few too. Now, I have 3 best friends and a few friends I’m not as close with.

    I never really had good grades. I never actually started failing until 8th grade though. 8th grade, to say the least…Sucked. The only class I actually did really well in was English…But that class had a lot of the mean popular, and jerkish people. Only a couple relatively nice people.

    I had about 20 absences throughout the year. Lunch time was a big deal for me. On days I knew i didn’t even have any friends in my lunch, I tried to stay home. When i didn’t get to, i literally spent lunch at my locker pretending to organize it…

    In about late April, I finally gave up. Those people there were starting to aggravate me. From them making fun of my friends (One of them actually took an embarassing picture of my best friend and put in on that god damned instagram site to make fun of her. ), to just giving up hope to do good in school. I left school. That led to having to go up to the school to guidance and other stuff.

    I don’t want to go to college. I’m afraid to make new friends there…And just the college “Experience” in general.

    I told one of my friends about how I don’t want to go to college and he started going on about how I’ll end up homeless with 6 kids with no dad. And about how I don’t try enough in school. I do try. Everyone says that about me! It’s so frustrating! I’ve just never been *Smart*. Is it true I’ll end up homeless, etc; if I don’t go to college? It kind of made me upset how he doubted me like that. He said that just paying attention and doing the work will make me excel in school. Umm hello what about the actual understanding part??

    My sister is a junior in college this fall and she said that my life would be messed up if i don’t go to college. I just don’t want to go!

    I’m just so stressed…I’ve already started a savings so I can leave when im 18. I just don’t know what to do. I’m not one of those people who would just willingly go to school till their 18, go to college for 4 years then work till they drop dead. I don’t want to!

    I’m not a people person and I’m not smart. Might as well live in a cave?

    Any suggestions? And don’t comment saying I’m dumb for not wanting to go to college, yada yada yada. Keep it in your head.

From them making fun of my friends (One of them actually took an embarassing picture of my best friend and put in on that god damned instagram site to make fun of her. ), to just giving up hope to do good in school. I left school. That led to having to go up to the school to guidance and other stuff.

    I don’t want to go to college. I’m afraid to make new friends there…And just the college “Experience” in general.

    I told one of my friends about how I don’t want to go to college and he started going on about how I’ll end up homeless with 6 kids with no dad. And about how I don’t try enough in school. I do try. Everyone says that about me! It’s so frustrating! I’ve just never been *Smart*. Is it true I’ll end up homeless, etc; if I don’t go to college? It kind of made me upset how he doubted me like that. He said that just paying attention and doing the work will make me excel in school. Umm hello what about the actual understanding part??

    My sister is a junior in college this fall and she said that my life would be messed up if i don’t go to college. I just don’t want to go!

    I’m just so stressed…I’ve already started a savings so I can leave when im 18. I just don’t know what to do. I’m not one of those people who would just willingly go to school till their 18, go to college for 4 years then work till they drop dead. I don’t want to!

    I’m not a people person and I’m not smart. Might as well live in a cave?

    Any suggestions? And don’t comment saying I’m dumb for not wanting to go to college, yada yada yada. Keep it in your head.

  16. Im a 14 year old girl, a freshman in September. I’ve always been one to stress over things, even if they’re far away. I’m a quiet person. I’m not very good at conversations..I’ve always been this way. I hate school. Our town’s school system is messed up, so the high school starts with 8th grade, so like the other kids in my grade, we became high schoolers a year earlier. I didn’t do so well this year. I was failing almost all of my classes slowly throughout the year. First quarter, i was only failing spanish and algebra..then as time passed, i began to fail physical science, gym (I hate group activities..) and almost fail chorus. I honestly do not know why i got a 72 in chorus ALL YEAR. My friends all got 90s and 100s. It’s not like I didn’t sing! Sure, I wasn’t going all Madonna during class, but neither did my friends. Maybe the teacher didn’t like me, although I don’t think it’s fair to give someone low marks just because you didn’t *Like* them. I didn’t act up in class or anything,

    I hated school my whole life. I didn’t even go to preschool because i literally cried the WHOLE time there, so my mom took me out. In 2nd grade, these boys always made fun of me and I didn’t have any friends. Literally did not have ANY friends to play with at recess or talk about barbies with at lunch. I barely even spoke. People would come up to me and deliberately ask “Why are you so quiet?” I would just answer with “I dunno..?” and feel offended. I was only 7/8 years old. While other kids were laughing and goofing off, I spent my recess on the swings by myself and sat alone at lunch. The only thing that really made me happy was girl scouts, which I did at the time.

    I finally made friends in third grade. Then some more throughout the years. I lost a few too. Now, I have 3 best friends and a few friends I’m not as close with.

    I never really had good grades. I never actually started failing until 8th grade though. 8th grade, to say the least…Sucked. The only class I actually did really well in was English…But that class had a lot of the mean popular, and jerkish people. Only a couple relatively nice people.

  29. Im a 14 year old girl, a freshman in September. I’ve always been one to stress over things, even if they’re far away. I’m a quiet person. I’m not very good at conversations..I’ve always been this way. I hate school. Our town’s school system is messed up, so the high school starts with 8th grade, so like the other kids in my grade, we became high schoolers a year earlier. I didn’t do so well this year. I was failing almost all of my classes slowly throughout the year. First quarter, i was only failing spanish and algebra..then as time passed, i began to fail physical science, gym (I hate group activities..) and almost fail chorus. I honestly do not know why i got a 72 in chorus ALL YEAR. My friends all got 90s and 100s. It’s not like I didn’t sing! Sure, I wasn’t going all Madonna during class, but neither did my friends. Maybe the teacher didn’t like me, although I don’t think it’s fair to give someone low marks just because you didn’t *Like* them. I didn’t act up in class or anything,

    I hated school my whole life. I didn’t even go to preschool because i literally cried the WHOLE time there, so my mom took me out. In 2nd grade, these boys always made fun of me and I didn’t have any friends. Literally did not have ANY friends to play with at recess or talk about barbies with at lunch. I barely even spoke. People would come up to me and deliberately ask “Why are you so quiet?” I would just answer with “I dunno..?” and feel offended. I was only 7/8 years old. While other kids were laughing and goofing off, I spent my recess on the swings by myself and sat alone at lunch. The only thing that really made me happy was girl scouts, which I did at the time.

    I finally made friends in third grade. Then some more throughout the years. I lost a few too. Now, I have 3 best friends and a few friends I’m not as close with.

    I never really had good grades. I never actually started failing until 8th grade though. 8th grade, to say the least…Sucked. The only class I actually did really well in was English…But that class had a lot of the mean popular, and jerkish people. Only a couple relatively nice people.

    I had about 20 absences throughout the year. Lunch time was a big deal for me. On days I knew i didn’t even have any friends in my lunch, I tried to stay home. When i didn’t get to, i literally spent lunch at my locker pretending to organize it…

    In about late April, I finally gave up. Those people there were starting to aggravate me. From them making fun of my friends (One of them actually took an embarassing picture of my best friend and put in on that god damned instagram site to make fun of her. ), to just giving up hope to do good in school. I left school. That led to having to go up to the school to guidance and other stuff.

    I don’t want to go to college. I’m afraid to make new friends there…And just the college “Experience” in general.

    I told one of my friends about how I don’t want to go to college and he started going on about how I’ll end up homeless with 6 kids with no dad. And about how I don’t try enough in school. I do try. Everyone says that about me! It’s so frustrating! I’ve just never been *Smart*. Is it true I’ll end up homeless, etc; if I don’t go to college? It kind of made me upset how he doubted me like that. He said that just paying attention and doing the work will make me excel in school. Umm hello what about the actual understanding part??

    My sister is a junior in college this fall and she said that my life would be messed up if i don’t go to college. I just don’t want to go!

    I’m just so stressed…I’ve already started a savings so I can leave when im 18. I just don’t know what to do. I’m not one of those people who would just willingly go to school till their 18, go to college for 4 years then work till they drop dead. I don’t want to!

    I’m not a people person and I’m not smart. Might as well live in a cave?

    Any suggestions? And don’t comment saying I’m dumb for not wanting to go to college, yada yada yada. Keep it in your head.

  42. I am sorry for the stupid title, but I needed to get to the point.
    First of all, I’m only a freshman and I think I’ve managed to screw things up. My weighted GPA is a 3.42 but my unweighted GPA is a 3.13. This is incredibly horrible for Harvard.
    Second, I am not in all honors classes for math is my weakness. I currently take algebra 1 as a ninth grader while my competitors are all probably geniuses.
    Third, my high school career so far doesn’t look promising. I am mostly interested in studying political science and law. However my history grade is at a B- due to my group not putting in effort for a project and a C in English with a scary and difficult teacher. Not only is my résumé complete and utter garbage but my teachers see absolutely no spark in me and many of them dislike me, so hear come the reccomendations. My extracurriculars are not geared towards what I would like to study. I am only in the Anime club and I participated as a juror in the mock trial due to an inability to get there the majority of the time since I did not have a ride. The cherry on top of all that, I am poor. This is probably a burden on Harvard and I have no idea is they’re need blind. I feel as though I’m just sitting here making excuses. However, I really want to fix everything. What can I do over the summer? Are there any such thing as free classes for low income students? All of the other kids in the top of my class get extra tutoring. Should I borrow textbooks ahead of time and start my classes for the next years ahead of time? I would probably need to do community service or save the children in Africa, however I have no money for the latter. I want to participate in model congress, but I cannot afford it.

  43. Im a 14 year old girl, a freshman in September. I’ve always been one to stress over things, even if they’re far away. I’m a quiet person. I’m not very good at conversations..I’ve always been this way. I hate school. Our town’s school system is messed up, so the high school starts with 8th grade, so like the other kids in my grade, we became high schoolers a year earlier. I didn’t do so well this year. I was failing almost all of my classes slowly throughout the year. First quarter, i was only failing spanish and algebra..then as time passed, i began to fail physical science, gym (I hate group activities..) and almost fail chorus. I honestly do not know why i got a 72 in chorus ALL YEAR. My friends all got 90s and 100s. It’s not like I didn’t sing! Sure, I wasn’t going all Madonna during class, but neither did my friends. Maybe the teacher didn’t like me, although I don’t think it’s fair to give someone low marks just because you didn’t *Like* them. I didn’t act up in class or anything,

    I hated school my whole life. I didn’t even go to preschool because i literally cried the WHOLE time there, so my mom took me out. In 2nd grade, these boys always made fun of me and I didn’t have any friends. Literally did not have ANY friends to play with at recess or talk about barbies with at lunch. I barely even spoke. People would come up to me and deliberately ask “Why are you so quiet?” I would just answer with “I dunno..?” and feel offended. I was only 7/8 years old. While other kids were laughing and goofing off, I spent my recess on the swings by myself and sat alone at lunch. The only thing that really made me happy was girl scouts, which I did at the time.

    I finally made friends in third grade. Then some more throughout the years. I lost a few too. Now, I have 3 best friends and a few friends I’m not as close with.

    I never really had good grades. I never actually started failing until 8th grade though. 8th grade, to say the least…Sucked. The only class I actually did really well in was English…But that class had a lot of the mean popular, and jerkish people. Only a couple relatively nice people.

    I had about 20 absences throughout the year. Lunch time was a big deal for me. On days I knew i didn’t even have any friends in my lunch, I tried to stay home. When i didn’t get to, i literally spent lunch at my locker pretending to organize it…

    In about late April, I finally gave up. Those people there were starting to aggravate me. From them making fun of my friends (One of them actually took an embarassing picture of my best friend and put in on that god damned instagram site to make fun of her. ), to just giving up hope to do good in school. I left school. That led to having to go up to the school to guidance and other stuff.

    I don’t want to go to college. I’m afraid to make new friends there…And just the college “Experience” in general.

    I told one of my friends about how I don’t want to go to college and he started going on about how I’ll end up homeless with 6 kids with no dad. And about how I don’t try enough in school. I do try. Everyone says that about me! It’s so frustrating! I’ve just never been *Smart*. Is it true I’ll end up homeless, etc; if I don’t go to college? It kind of made me upset how he doubted me like that. He said that just paying attention and doing the work will make me excel in school. Umm hello what about the actual understanding part??

    My sister is a junior in college this fall and she said that my life would be messed up if i don’t go to college. I just don’t want to go!

    I’m just so stressed…I’ve already started a savings so I can leave when im 18. I just don’t know what to do. I’m not one of those people who would just willingly go to school till their 18, go to college for 4 years then work till they drop dead. I don’t want to!

    I’m not a people person and I’m not smart. Might as well live in a cave?

    Any suggestions? And don’t comment saying I’m dumb for not wanting to go to college, yada yada yada. Keep it in your head.

  44. I am sorry for the stupid title, but I needed to get to the point.
    First of all, I’m only a freshman and I think I’ve managed to screw things up. My weighted GPA is a 3.42 but my unweighted GPA is a 3.13. This is incredibly horrible for Harvard.
    Second, I am not in all honors classes for math is my weakness. I currently take algebra 1 as a ninth grader while my competitors are all probably geniuses.
    Third, my high school career so far doesn’t look promising. I am mostly interested in studying political science and law. However my history grade is at a B- due to my group not putting in effort for a project and a C in English with a scary and difficult teacher. Not only is my résumé complete and utter garbage but my teachers see absolutely no spark in me and many of them dislike me, so hear come the reccomendations. My extracurriculars are not geared towards what I would like to study. I am only in the Anime club and I participated as a juror in the mock trial due to an inability to get there the majority of the time since I did not have a ride. The cherry on top of all that, I am poor. This is probably a burden on Harvard and I have no idea is they’re need blind. I feel as though I’m just sitting here making excuses. However, I really want to fix everything. What can I do over the summer? Are there any such thing as free classes for low income students? All of the other kids in the top of my class get extra tutoring. Should I borrow textbooks ahead of time and start my classes for the next years ahead of time? I would probably need to do community service or save the children in Africa, however I have no money for the latter. I want to participate in model congress, but I cannot afford it.

Maybe the teacher didn’t like me, although I don’t think it’s fair to give someone low marks just because you didn’t *Like* them. I didn’t act up in class or anything,

    I hated school my whole life. I didn’t even go to preschool because i literally cried the WHOLE time there, so my mom took me out. In 2nd grade, these boys always made fun of me and I didn’t have any friends. Literally did not have ANY friends to play with at recess or talk about barbies with at lunch. I barely even spoke. People would come up to me and deliberately ask “Why are you so quiet?” I would just answer with “I dunno..?” and feel offended. I was only 7/8 years old. While other kids were laughing and goofing off, I spent my recess on the swings by myself and sat alone at lunch. The only thing that really made me happy was girl scouts, which I did at the time.

    I finally made friends in third grade. Then some more throughout the years. I lost a few too. Now, I have 3 best friends and a few friends I’m not as close with.

    I never really had good grades. I never actually started failing until 8th grade though. 8th grade, to say the least…Sucked. The only class I actually did really well in was English…But that class had a lot of the mean popular, and jerkish people. Only a couple relatively nice people.

    I had about 20 absences throughout the year. Lunch time was a big deal for me. On days I knew i didn’t even have any friends in my lunch, I tried to stay home. When i didn’t get to, i literally spent lunch at my locker pretending to organize it…

    In about late April, I finally gave up. Those people there were starting to aggravate me. From them making fun of my friends (One of them actually took an embarassing picture of my best friend and put in on that god damned instagram site to make fun of her. ), to just giving up hope to do good in school. I left school. That led to having to go up to the school to guidance and other stuff.

    I don’t want to go to college. I’m afraid to make new friends there…And just the college “Experience” in general.

    I told one of my friends about how I don’t want to go to college and he started going on about how I’ll end up homeless with 6 kids with no dad. And about how I don’t try enough in school. I do try. Everyone says that about me! It’s so frustrating! I’ve just never been *Smart*. Is it true I’ll end up homeless, etc; if I don’t go to college? It kind of made me upset how he doubted me like that. He said that just paying attention and doing the work will make me excel in school. Umm hello what about the actual understanding part??

    My sister is a junior in college this fall and she said that my life would be messed up if i don’t go to college. I just don’t want to go!

    I’m just so stressed…I’ve already started a savings so I can leave when im 18. I just don’t know what to do. I’m not one of those people who would just willingly go to school till their 18, go to college for 4 years then work till they drop dead. I don’t want to!

    I’m not a people person and I’m not smart. Might as well live in a cave?

    Any suggestions? And don’t comment saying I’m dumb for not wanting to go to college, yada yada yada. Keep it in your head.

  54. I am sorry for the stupid title, but I needed to get to the point.
    First of all, I’m only a freshman and I think I’ve managed to screw things up. My weighted GPA is a 3.42 but my unweighted GPA is a 3.13. This is incredibly horrible for Harvard.
    Second, I am not in all honors classes for math is my weakness. I currently take algebra 1 as a ninth grader while my competitors are all probably geniuses.
    Third, my high school career so far doesn’t look promising. I am mostly interested in studying political science and law. However my history grade is at a B- due to my group not putting in effort for a project and a C in English with a scary and difficult teacher. Not only is my résumé complete and utter garbage but my teachers see absolutely no spark in me and many of them dislike me, so hear come the reccomendations. My extracurriculars are not geared towards what I would like to study. I am only in the Anime club and I participated as a juror in the mock trial due to an inability to get there the majority of the time since I did not have a ride. The cherry on top of all that, I am poor. This is probably a burden on Harvard and I have no idea is they’re need blind. I feel as though I’m just sitting here making excuses. However, I really want to fix everything. What can I do over the summer? Are there any such thing as free classes for low income students? All of the other kids in the top of my class get extra tutoring. Should I borrow textbooks ahead of time and start my classes for the next years ahead of time? I would probably need to do community service or save the children in Africa, however I have no money for the latter. I want to participate in model congress, but I cannot afford it. Help me, just help me figure this all out. I need your help, I’m not brilliant. So please, your advice is the only way.

  55. Im a 14 year old girl, a freshman in September. I’ve always been one to stress over things, even if they’re far away. I’m a quiet person. I’m not very good at conversations..I’ve always been this way. I hate school.

The cherry on top of all that, I am poor. This is probably a burden on Harvard and I have no idea is they’re need blind. I feel as though I’m just sitting here making excuses. However, I really want to fix everything. What can I do over the summer? Are there any such thing as free classes for low income students?

  63. I am sorry for the stupid title, but I needed to get to the point.
    First of all, I’m only a freshman and I think I’ve managed to screw things up. My weighted GPA is a 3.42 but my unweighted GPA is a 3.13. This is incredibly horrible for Harvard.
    Second, I am not in all honors classes for math is my weakness. I currently take algebra 1 as a ninth grader while my competitors are all probably geniuses.
    Third, my high school career so far doesn’t look promising. I am mostly interested in studying political science and law. However my history grade is at a B- due to my group not putting in effort for a project and a C in English with a scary and difficult teacher. Not only is my résumé complete and utter garbage but my teachers see absolutely no spark in me and many of them dislike me, so hear come the reccomendations.

  64. Im a 14 year old girl, a freshman in September. I’ve always been one to stress over things, even if they’re far away. I’m a quiet person. I’m not very good at conversations..I’ve always been this way. I hate school. Our town’s school system is messed up, so the high school starts with 8th grade, so like the other kids in my grade, we became high schoolers a year earlier. I didn’t do so well this year. I was failing almost all of my classes slowly throughout the year. First quarter, i was only failing spanish and algebra..then as time passed, i began to fail physical science, gym (I hate group activities..) and almost fail chorus. I honestly do not know why i got a 72 in chorus ALL YEAR. My friends all got 90s and 100s. It’s not like I didn’t sing! Sure, I wasn’t going all Madonna during class, but neither did my friends. Maybe the teacher didn’t like me, although I don’t think it’s fair to give someone low marks just because you didn’t *Like* them. I didn’t act up in class or anything,

    I hated school my whole life. I didn’t even go to preschool because i literally cried the WHOLE time there, so my mom took me out. In 2nd grade, these boys always made fun of me and I didn’t have any friends. Literally did not have ANY friends to play with at recess or talk about barbies with at lunch. I barely even spoke. People would come up to me and deliberately ask “Why are you so quiet?” I would just answer with “I dunno..?” and feel offended. I was only 7/8 years old. While other kids were laughing and goofing off, I spent my recess on the swings by myself and sat alone at lunch. The only thing that really made me happy was girl scouts, which I did at the time.

    I finally made friends in third grade. Then some more throughout the years. I lost a few too. Now, I have 3 best friends and a few friends I’m not as close with.

    I never really had good grades. I never actually started failing until 8th grade though. 8th grade, to say the least…Sucked. The only class I actually did really well in was English…But that class had a lot of the mean popular, and jerkish people. Only a couple relatively nice people.

    I had about 20 absences throughout the year. Lunch time was a big deal for me. On days I knew i didn’t even have any friends in my lunch, I tried to stay home. When i didn’t get to, i literally spent lunch at my locker pretending to organize it…

    In about late April, I finally gave up. Those people there were starting to aggravate me. From them making fun of my friends (One of them actually took an embarassing picture of my best friend and put in on that god damned instagram site to make fun of her. ), to just giving up hope to do good in school. I left school. That led to having to go up to the school to guidance and other stuff.

    I don’t want to go to college. I’m afraid to make new friends there…And just the college “Experience” in general.

    I told one of my friends about how I don’t want to go to college and he started going on about how I’ll end up homeless with 6 kids with no dad. And about how I don’t try enough in school. I do try. Everyone says that about me! It’s so frustrating! I’ve just never been *Smart*. Is it true I’ll end up homeless, etc; if I don’t go to college? It kind of made me upset how he doubted me like that. He said that just paying attention and doing the work will make me excel in school. Umm hello what about the actual understanding part??

    My sister is a junior in college this fall and she said that my life would be messed up if i don’t go to college. I just don’t want to go!

    I’m just so stressed…I’ve already started a savings so I can leave when im 18. I just don’t know what to do. I’m not one of those people who would just willingly go to school till their 18, go to college for 4 years then work till they drop dead. I don’t want to!

    I’m not a people person and I’m not smart. Might as well live in a cave?

    Any suggestions? And don’t comment saying I’m dumb for not wanting to go to college, yada yada yada. Keep it in your head.

    Second, I am not in all honors classes for math is my weakness. I currently take algebra 1 as a ninth grader while my competitors are all probably geniuses.
    Third, my high school career so far doesn’t look promising. I am mostly interested in studying political science and law. However my history grade is at a B- due to my group not putting in effort for a project and a C in English with a scary and difficult teacher. Not only is my résumé complete and utter garbage but my teachers see absolutely no spark in me and many of them dislike me, so hear come the reccomendations. My extracurriculars are not geared towards what I would like to study. I am only in the Anime club and I participated as a juror in the mock trial due to an inability to get there the majority of the time since I did not have a ride. The cherry on top of all that, I am poor. This is probably a burden on Harvard and I have no idea is they’re need blind. I feel as though I’m just sitting here making excuses. However, I really want to fix everything. What can I do over the summer? Are there any such thing as free classes for low income students? All of the other kids in the top of my class get extra tutoring. Should I borrow textbooks ahead of time and start my classes for the next years ahead of time? I would probably need to do community service or save the children in Africa, however I have no money for the latter. I want to participate in model congress, but I cannot afford it. Help me, just help me figure this all out. I need your help, I’m not brilliant. So please, your advice is the only way.

  74. Im a 14 year old girl, a freshman in September. I’ve always been one to stress over things, even if they’re far away. I’m a quiet person. I’m not very good at conversations..I’ve always been this way. I hate school. Our town’s school system is messed up, so the high school starts with 8th grade, so like the other kids in my grade, we became high schoolers a year earlier. I didn’t do so well this year. I was failing almost all of my classes slowly throughout the year. First quarter, i was only failing spanish and algebra..then as time passed, i began to fail physical science, gym (I hate group activities..) and almost fail chorus. I honestly do not know why i got a 72 in chorus ALL YEAR. My friends all got 90s and 100s. It’s not like I didn’t sing! Sure, I wasn’t going all Madonna during class, but neither did my friends. Maybe the teacher didn’t like me, although I don’t think it’s fair to give someone low marks just because you didn’t *Like* them. I didn’t act up in class or anything,

    I hated school my whole life. I didn’t even go to preschool because i literally cried the WHOLE time there, so my mom took me out. In 2nd grade, these boys always made fun of me and I didn’t have any friends. Literally did not have ANY friends to play with at recess or talk about barbies with at lunch. I barely even spoke. People would come up to me and deliberately ask “Why are you so quiet?” I would just answer with “I dunno..?” and feel offended. I was only 7/8 years old. While other kids were laughing and goofing off, I spent my recess on the swings by myself and sat alone at lunch. The only thing that really made me happy was girl scouts, which I did at the time.

    I finally made friends in third grade. Then some more throughout the years. I lost a few too. Now, I have 3 best friends and a few friends I’m not as close with.

    I never really had good grades. I never actually started failing until 8th grade though. 8th grade, to say the least…Sucked. The only class I actually did really well in was English…But that class had a lot of the mean popular, and jerkish people. Only a couple relatively nice people.

    I had about 20 absences throughout the year. Lunch time was a big deal for me. On days I knew i didn’t even have any friends in my lunch, I tried to stay home. When i didn’t get to, i literally spent lunch at my locker pretending to organize it…

    In about late April, I finally gave up. Those people there were starting to aggravate me. From them making fun of my friends (One of them actually took an embarassing picture of my best friend and put in on that god damned instagram site to make fun of her. ), to just giving up hope to do good in school. I left school. That led to having to go up to the school to guidance and other stuff.

    I don’t want to go to college. I’m afraid to make new friends there…And just the college “Experience” in general.

    I told one of my friends about how I don’t want to go to college and he started going on about how I’ll end up homeless with 6 kids with no dad. And about how I don’t try enough in school. I do try. Everyone says that about me! It’s so frustrating! I’ve just never been *Smart*. Is it true I’ll end up homeless, etc; if I don’t go to college? It kind of made me upset how he doubted me like that. He said that just paying attention and doing the work will make me excel in school. Umm hello what about the actual understanding part??

    My sister is a junior in college this fall and she said that my life would be messed up if i don’t go to college. I just don’t want to go!

    I’m just so stressed…I’ve already started a savings so I can leave when im 18. I just don’t know what to do. I’m not one of those people who would just willingly go to school till their 18, go to college for 4 years then work till they drop dead. I don’t want to!

    I’m not a people person and I’m not smart. Might as well live in a cave?

    Any suggestions? And don’t comment saying I’m dumb for not wanting to go to college, yada yada yada. Keep it in your head.
