I know isn't that the biggest pile of nonsense ever. Can't stand it when you are put in a group with someone you can't stand/doesn't do work.

It felt more rewarding than being # 1 in grammar school, but competing with people who could barely form a sentence.
Well since leaving that school and going to a college to study AS Maths I have learn't that I am not stupid at all. School/Grammar school gives a false sense of reality where we think that everyone gets A's.

There were some very deluded people in school, there was on one instance a girl in my form class who actually cried every time she would get a B in an exam.. couldn't understand that and it made me and everyone else in the class feel like we were thick. People in top classes often acted like they were better than us.

Yes and no. The girls = yes The girls = no The fact that all that time I wasted when I could have been working on things = yes

No way! Not best of time by a long shot. I had undiagnosed major depression.

No. I was a heathen and misbehaved, wasting a lot of everyone's time. It wasn't fun at all.

hell no! i graduated HS in 2012 and things have slowly improved for me. I hated high school for the most part because I wasn't learning crap except how to procrastinate better and how to copy and paste in the best way (plus I didn't like most of my teachers since American teachers a lot of times, tend to be dumbasses who can't make it in more difficult majors, and they were die-hard *******s to the bone). College ended up being the same except I didn't have the college party scene to fall back on and I didn't develop many friends.

Learned 100 times more stuff since leaving high school and have more fun.
