We had a class freshman year where we'd give a speech about every week. Everyone talked about how stressful high school was or how the band was a family. My speeches were mostly me talking about how everyone chooses to stress themselves out. I was the teachers favorite
@stealth suit mkII, highschool teaches you one thing that sticks, you don't really need to do all your homework just pass tests. Really fuçks you in college that mindset does ill tell you hwhat...
@stealth suit mkII, My god, I HATE all those "band is a family" people. Not everyone gives that much of a sh!t about fvcking marching season!
High-school wasn't hard. All you had to do was homework and show up then you got a degree.
@That one Gay Boy, you never had to deal with bullies and friends that killed themselves
@Attack Pillow, don't have friends that are p u s sies, it won't happen.
@spiderrrman, you cannot possibly be serious, I know it might be difficult for someone so gifted to understand but not everyone gets even average genetics, if you really think it's their fault that they had parents that were abusive, we raped, and then made fun of until they couldn't take it anymore, you really should take some time away from other people.
@Attack Pillow, *were There's a big difference there
@Attack Pillow, um fun fact yeah I have I've known plenty kids and friends that have taken their life and I went many years of my life being bullied even in my own community I was bullied just for being a non white citizen so do not come at me for being someone who has never been bullied or has never known someone that has chose death over life.
@That one Gay Boy, If you still maintain that high school was easy in light of that, you're either ignoring what it is like for some poor child to come to school everyday to be told that they should kill themselves just for existing, or just lying about your experiences. I know I'll get down voted by those who disagree, but if you really want to trivialize pain just because of the age, you're part of the problem.
@That one Gay Boy, babies like you are so annoying. I was bullied up until my junior year of hs. Tiny guy 3 to 4.5ft high while in hs under 100 pounds. I got tired of bullies and man the fck up. Ignored them, talked sht back, fought them physically even if it meant losing. After all that, those assholes went away.You're only bullied if you let people bully you, and whining and crying about little old bullied you, or using fuçking people who killed themselves because of bullies in your argument only shows how they won. Man up and forget about them, playing victim does nothing but show how well all their asshole motives paid off.
@That one Gay Boy, my bad mate, was ment for @Attack Pillow
@I Dexios Divine I, not everyone gets to grow up, I did that, but I'm going to fight for those didn't or won't. The "man up" argument is overused, what didn't kill you or I could easily kill others. If you honestly think saying "man up" will fix actual bullien then you're mistaken, you were just lucky enough to have bullies who didnt fight back. Youre just as bad as them if you think manning up is always the solution, sounds to me like you like protecting bullies rather than those who can't protect themselves.
@I Dexios Divine I, I'm ashamed for the person you grew up to be.
@Attack Pillow, survival of the fittest. It's a dog eat dog world. You can either be the predator or the prey.
@k151rumm, Seeing such cliches used as a serious argument saddens me. You strike me as more the person to pick on people because it amuses you. It's a shame so many people here disagree with me, but it shows clearly why this problem still exists.
@Attack Pillow, I'm sorry you had to deal with friends committing suicide in highschool. That must've been hard on you and that it still affects you today. But I feel like you're taking it out on these guys. It was completely random and out of nowhere with the whole suicide comment.
@Attack Pillow, yeah a person who doesnt let assholes ruin my day, what a horrible way to live. And i said i fought them physically and lost most of the time, how does that translate to them not fighting back??Hand holding and crying for people who wont stand up for themselves helps them in zero ways. Theyll never learn to rely on themselves, and theyll always need someone else to fix their problems or fight their fights. Childhoods have lasting impacts, and teaching a kid that if they cant do something they shouldnt bother trying to fix it them self, just get someone whos better to do it for them, will make them shít adults. Have them stand up for themselves with some help if things get out of hand, but just straight up pandering them will do nothing for them. And stop playing the damn victim card IF YOU'RE NOT A VICTIM. Fùcking makes it harder for people who actually have problems they can't fix when people like you who dont have said problem use it....
@I Dexios Divine I, you're good lol
@That one Gay Boy, *diploma, college awards degrees
@Attack Pillow, I've lost interest in this conversation mainly because I don't spend my life living in the past. I'm 21 I have been through plenty of fvcked up sh!t in my life. I've even had to take therapy for one traumatic incident, and was forced to move 3000 miles away from my mom and my best friends (one of which is a dog I had since birth). Yeah lots of stuff happens it all depends on how you really want to spend the rest of your days playing the victim and wanting people to just care for you or actually pushing through and making your life the better than it was before.
That's four years of your life, pretty sure that's a bigger bump
@Cynical Pancakes, OK freshy
@Cynical Pancakes, I could settle for like, 4 smaller bumps
@Cynical Pancakes, This was my exact thought process 3 years ago... and then I blinked... and now I'm gonna be a senior.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , dang
Except college is what they imagined the fiery fist o' pain to be.
lol very wrong. high school is a stressful and emotional roller coaster for everyone. everyone's worried about getting good grades, trying to fit in, being told what to do and when you can shjt, all sorts of people will make you feel bad or good. high school is a big part of life that feels like it lasts forever
@2Scoopz, But in retrospect, it's an incredibly small part of your life, that isn't really worth the stress.
Air Force basic in a nutshell
This is so true. Perfectly sums up my feelings looking back on it
I actually just graduated today
Such a rollercoaster of emotions
