That lasted for about half a year, then we went back to our old high school, I decided I wanted to graduate on time (somehow we got accepted back in.) I had to drive almost an hour every day from my newer house to my old school & we had to do stacks and stacks of work that was missed while being gone, I eventually got all caught up, but had to take night school classes too, to catch up on credits to be able to graduate on time with the rest of my original class, which I did.

All my old friends stopped talking to me at school after I came back because they heard about me dropping out and partying, and looked down on me for it, so I only still talked to my party friends (who didn't go to that school) and pretty much no one else except like maybe one person from each class I was in. So by the time graduation day came I was extremely happy to be done with all that mess.

Well, that was long winded hahah. Sorry, I got on a roll of memories I guess.
Sounds as if you had a decent time. :P And your old friends weren't really your friends if they looked down at you for your partying. High school is superficial at best..

High school was pretty interesting. First, I was never part of the "in" crowd, but I was able to get along with, almost, anyone.

In grade 9 (high school in New Brunswick starts at grade 9), I found classes fun. I took the regular classes: English, math, Social Studies, art, gym, music, Computer Tech., French (grade 9 and 10), and Science. It was a lot of fun. I had an interesting group of friends who were all into anime. They brought me to UNB (University of New Brunswick) to the Saturday night "anime." This is where I learned a lot more about anime in general.

In grade 10, I started off in NB but in November of that year, I moved and attended the rest of grade 10 in Alliston, Ontario. That school was huge! It had over 2500 students crammed into a school that should have had only 1500. At any rate, it was difficult at first to find friends because I entered 3/4 of the way through semester one. My English teacher threw this project on me that all the students started at the beginning of the semester. Anyways, it was not bad. I eventually found friends who were also into anime. This is when I got to attend "Anime North" in Toronto for my first time. I took: English, Math, Canadian History, Science, French (11), Computer Science (11), Career Studies, Civics, and Art.

In grade 11, I was transferred to a new school in Barrie, Ontario. This was an exciting move as I got to go to a brand new school. It was different and gaining acquaintances was easier in this environment as most students were "uprooted" and moved to this new school. I had some of my friends from grade 10 and met new ones as well. My friends began to range from anime otaku to regular classmates. I took: Accounting, Business, Graphic Design, Marketing, Math, American History, English, and Peer Tutoring (kind of like Co-op).

In grade 12, I moved to Petawawa, Ontario to finish out my education in a smaller school - population 500. I went through many hoops to complete my education here and it ended up taking an extra year in order to complete my studies as some courses were not offered in certain years or were offered the same time as other courses. Thus, in my first year I took: Finite Math, Law, History, and English. My second year I took Co-op (Teaching - Biology and Computer Science), Computer Science, and Calculus. I found a small group of friends that were into anime here as well. By this point in time, however, I lost contact with many of my friends in my other moves.

I hope that was not too boring! lol

At the time in Texas and in Oklahoma (1979-1982 HS was 10th 11th and 12th grades. I was injured in several accidents during 10th and 11th grade. Got my bell rung pretty good so school never had meaning after that. Ended up moving back to Oklahoma to finish had to take a year over from the time missed.

Glad as heck to get out of that, sure didn't fit in any where. I worked and lived in a rent house any way for that.

Biggest mistake? Trying to keep up with the wrong 'clicks' of people. Didn't marry my first girl friend. I'd take math and advanced math classes if I had it all to do over again.

Haha yeah, I haven't talked to anyone from high school since graduating, I guess the partying *was* a decent time, but also a dark time for me. I kinda regret some of if, but I guess parts were fun too. It really brought more problems than good things in the end.

Hmmm high school, I loved it... it was 5 years for me

grade 9, 10, 11, 12, and OAC (it was a univ. prep grade for Ontario back in the day, it no longer exists)

Anyway grade 9 - 10 was kinda boring but I made some good friends, in grade 11 I got involved with a girl I really shouldn't have... which led me to lots of alcohol and pot... grade 12 and OAC I basically came to class high everyday... I know this was bad but it was fun. I ended up skipping classes all the time to hang out with my friends and go skateboarding with them somewhere. However; this took a hard hit on my marks.

I actually passed high school (barely) but I didn't get into the universities I wanted . If I could do high school all over again, yes I'd stay away from the booze and the drugs... I regret it but I still found it fun and I got along with EVERYONE (Jocks, Nerds, Geeks, Freaks, Goths, Pot Heads you name it).

I made a total 180 after high school though and straightened myself up.

High School in Melbourne sucks. Its way to competitive. It the only selective school here so everybody are just smart jerks because you get a crap score they bag you you get a good score they still bag you. Made a few great friends though but no many.

You went back and completed it, right? There's a lot to be said about someone who goes back after enduring a difficulty.

I couldn't help but laugh a bit. In College, I am working on exempting some courses that I carry qualifications in. I have good grades, references, experience, and so fourth and they still were giving me a hard time. I hope to get this resolved by next week. At any rate, I can understand where you are coming from.

Kindergarten - Grade 3 was awsome for me, I was confident and energetic and got along great with alot of other kids and made alot of good friends. Then my family had to move after Grade 3 and so all of that went down the toilet since I had to go to a new school for grades 4-8 which unfortunatly lead to me becoming an overly introverted weakling from grades 6-8. Grade 4 and 5 hadnt been too bad but 6-8 was hell as those were the years when the real assholes of the school went into full bloom.

Highschool on the otherhand was like a new beginning for me. It gave me the opportunity to change and actually make new friends. I certainly never became "popular" or really fit in with any of the big crowds but I was no longer an insecure weakling and had a small but nonethless good group of friends to hang out with.

High school has been pretty fun so far. Im a senior now so i gotta have fun yet take it serious as so i can get into a good college. Freshman year was boring and sophmore year i experimented with drugs for the first time but after that i got it together. I havent really had any hard classes til now. I feel that when i graduate im really going to miss the routine and hanging out with all my friends.

High school only 3 years here (6 years elementary, 3 years junior)...

For me it's boring...
Have to get going at 6 a.m. cause the bell ring at 6.45...
Teacher seldom teach me the right way...
School food is expensive...
etc. etc.

I just go to high school because i have to, not because i want to So my mark kinda bad except for math and IT. I always get around 60~65% for chemist, cause the teacher teach me nothing, 82% when i'm in 12th grade is miracle...

And not much friend, i'm enrolled in popular public high school so everybody is just uh, what is it, learn-a-holic maybe? Even someone has more than 1 cram school.

I'm glad i've already graduated... Now college is so fun cause i've nothing else to learn except IT... and i can download anime while studying

I hate high school (going to junior) furuno I agree it suck to wake up early in the morning that just pisses me off. At sophomore I didn't do so well I failed one class accounting (regretting taking that f***ing class) it was so boring that I just slept through it and I failed basically. Other class I do decent history I get easy A, Chemistry I get ok grade at the beginning of the I got about 70 then at last quarter I got 88 (huge improvement by the way), math decent got B, other classes pretty good I would say. Manage to scrape low 90 at my report card somehow (I don't know how). Now problem with me is that I can't focus when I go home all I do is watch anime or play game, I know I have to do homework or study but I wait till last second or I just don't do it and hand it late. I think I could do really well if I could focus, right now I have to a essay for history class but I didn't even start it and the school starts in september, I am just so damn lazy.
Also it really sucks because I moved at the end of ninth grade so at my new school I don't really have close friends at school.

Well I hope you had a good laugh. I guess I see why it is funny when you read on the internet like this but seriously its no laughing matter. I mean it your classmates and peers who do this to you (unless like I said they are really good friends). One of my friends at the school ended up in rehab due to this and he's still there.

Well, there were some ups and downs (though mostly I think it's full of downs...I think). Anyway, to be honest, I never really enjoyed or like my high school days since I felt left out as always. Although it makes a lot of memories...but in my case.....no.

Is college/university better? I mean if it is like the high school I go to then I'll just commit suicide. Or do you go out with friends and just party (party life FTW). I just like hanging with friends if its in the city or even at pizza hut.

College is way better IMO... The work load is a little heavier for me but I'm addicted to getting high marks now (I didn't care for marks in high school), so all I do is exercise, study and watch anime...

I try to avoid my friends while I'm at College because they're just unnecessary distractions that will only hold me down (haha I hope they don't join this forum and stumble upon this ). I've had my share of goofing off in high school, not going to do that again.

But... some of my friends party a lot and still manage to stay in college... they just don't rake in impressive marks.

For me, Highschool was.. good and terrible..

It was good because, from my first time coming back to my country, I've made friends and bestfriends, though not too much..

Terrible because, when I entered there, I was in ruins.. I was too heartbroken and too tired of life to face another day.. And what a terrible coincidence, it seems my batch were the most 'plastic' bunch in highschool, using each other, killing each other (not literally, mind j00, and not physically either..) and stuff..

So, what do you think will happen when a silent, lonesome girl enters? They murder her and make her an outcast..

Though, there were nice enough people who brought me happiness and lead me out of the dark (because I seriously believed I have no more purpose to live for) I was hurt too deep (how's 11 months of continuous crying sound? And 3 years of emptiness..) and there were this few people, who made me smile.. And because of them, I am were I am today..

Highschool was the worst time in life. The "barkada" (clique) mentality just isn't for me, so I was often by myself. Highschool kids are often shallow and would follow the latest fads without thinking. Highschool peer pressure also makes you think that having a Girlfriend is cool, even if you are not prepared for it. Maybe it's because of teenage rebellion that Highschool is the time where the practice of vices start. Anyway, Highschool is hell for lone wolves.

Whew... My true life started when I got out of this hell hole called Highschool.

Other than the fact that I became known as "the d00d that had butt$eck$$$ with a guitar" in some circles during my senior years (how this happened was actually quite hilarious), my high school experience is probably the most enjoyable time I've had so far in life.

Heck, definitely beats college and work.
