I just read all of your posts and I'm sorry that all of you had some negative experiences in school. Kids can be so mean and terribly harsh on other kids that aren't part of the "group". You're supposed to be going to school to learn, but then all of the other people dynamics come in and now you are dealing with mean teachers, bullying and other challenges that take away from school's purpose. I had my issues too, I survived them and it's all good now, but I don't look at school as the best times of my life either, because, really they were the worst years of my life too. Now I'm in the best years of my life and I hardly look back unless my mom will have a memory and wants to talk about it.
