Having four years of my life wasted, knowing that I'm stuck in a system where students are just a bar code or a number in a database and a percentage to be given a grade. Where the academically inclined and talented were tasked with upholding the school's test performance to counter-balance the faltering test scores of the majority residential students in order to secure more funding. This school operated on incompetency and it was a vacuum of “falsified hope” and mediocre aspirations. I did a lot of research into the public school system, how their teacher unions were in bed with the local politics and campaign contributions, extorting money from teachers as "union fees". The"bullying" tactics against other schools that were charter and private to capture more students and garner funding. The allocations of state granted school funding to promote a shitty learning environment in the school itself, for instance, they rented a DJ to play rap-crap music every Friday.

I ended up getting transferred to a different $h*ttier school district after addressing these issues to the administration, and put on a black list of troublemakers, and commanded to cease or they'd deny me graduation and diploma with threat of expulsion, they also "put in a good word" for me, essentially tarnishing my chances at the universities I had applied to, I didn't bother going back there to beg for my diploma (spent that final graduation week camping, did not regret it), but I graduated, surpassing the credit requirements in surplus.

Spending four years in high school.

That was one of them, the other was being too shy, socially inept, and oblivious to court girls who showed an interest in me as they beat around the bush to elicit some sort of epiphany for me to realize their feelings.


That is not fate. Sounds really bad. I thought of this. If we don't follow rules we would get arrested. Okay then I follow the rules but I can still be arrested like everyone else in misunderstandings and colorifying the truths. Oh well that was really bad luck man.
Free will exist but not without consequences. About free love well that is a never ending mission. ...Whatever..

Ehh. I brought about my own downfall. In retrospect high school doesn't predetermine your life, so no lingering resentments. Nice explanation by the way, couldn't have hit the nail on the head anymore than that.

It's good to let it out. I need to do that often too. Seems like cr can be a way of writing such things. Oh well...

Same here on the girls thing! I just wish I didn't pay my ex the attention she didn't deserve for so long. Sucks about the whole school thing though. My bud got cheated outta her diploma cause of missing some thing seniors did one day.


Girls sure are strange, least there are good memories. When you're done with HS, you're done. Am I right?

Huh, no real regrets. Except for that one time the art teacher called me a psychotic lesbian, and I responded by popping her in the mouth. She was a small woman so the hit broke parts of her jaw. I got into so much bloody trouble, but nowhere near as bad as I could have. Apparently the faculty had some kind of vendetta against her. One teacher even told me some of them were glad I'd punched her the way I did. Still, I was suspended for four days, and I didn't have to take Art anymore.

Long story short, to this day I feel bad for hitting her and not being punished accordingly. Being young and stupid was no excuse for that.

My three years of love sorrow was pain but I just hold onto the good memories with gratitude. My piano teacher. Oh so hopeless I was. Stupid and acted like an idiot. So much bad confidence by it but I am much better at palying paino thanks to her and what I play is at really high level. I never thought I were able to play the Minute Waltz and now I play anything. Rachmaninov Etudes, Preludes, Chopin Etudes, Scherzos and Liszt Transcendante Etudes and Grand Galop Cromatique. It is not impossible before you try. At least try before you say it cannot be done and reject the fact you see before your eyes. I was gonna read a book once and said: ''This book looks boring.'' Then I started reading it and before even knowning it I got clued to it. Yeah I gave the book a chance. Good spirits!

Mine is not just high school, but middle and elementary school as well. But, I wish I hadn't been stuck in a paranoid delusion about the evil school board for 8+ years, ugh.

I wish I had given it a bigger effort. Like with homework and done extra credit. It would have helped me a lot.
I also wish I wouldn't have done things so quickly. I wish I could have done a lot more..

Well there's the fact that i'm a hardheaded introvert, yeah i could've done without that. Basically my two biggest regrets are not putting more effort into the work, seeing as i was smart enough good grades but too lazy and arrogant to actually try, and the fact that i didn't socialize more.
