So I didnt have the "normal" childhood & as a result I missed out on the "normal" things in life. I deal with it all just fine but the one that annoys me or makes me kind of sad is high school. My high school years were so twisted its unreal.
Freshmen & Sophomore year were as normal as I ever got. I attended school like everyone else, was apart of groups & sports, had friends (or so I thought they were friends at the time), etc. I did get teased by some people for being the homeless girl bc half the time I nowhere to live really. My parents would kick me out of their house all the time & I'd live here or there for a while then go back then get kicked out again, it was all very random. Being teased for something that wasnt in my control really sucked but oh well lots of kids get teased.
A couple months into my Junior year is when it all hit the fan. I walked out of my parents place & never looked back. I got my own place with my high school boyfriend & still attended school while working part time to pay the rent (boy was I a complete outcast at this point). Well boyfriend & I broke up & I went into a deep depression. I couldnt handle the apartment on my own & I stopped going to school. I had no options but to leave town & go to a homeless shelter in a place I never been to before. I finished out my Junior year in a homeless shelter.
That summer I turned 18 & yet again got a place with some roomates. I attempted to go to high school like a regular senior while working full time after school hours. I started at one school & found it to be too much so I switched to another school the next town over. The second school didnt work out so I dropped out. I wasnt out of school for long when I got picked up by a program at yet another school that allowed me not to attend school every day. This was a lot less pressure but it was all homework bc I had no classroom work (not a GED if that is what you are thinking I got my full diploma). I graduated that year on time from a school I honestly never set foot in (the building I had to report to wasnt on the campus).
I didnt attend my graduation, I had to stop sports when I left home (something I loved), once I left home all those friends never talked to me again, I never had senior skip day, senior class trip, two extra years of my clubs & sports, right before leaving my parents house I was signed up to go to australia on a trip but after I left I couldnt afford the money for the trip so I had to drop out. Basically I didnt get to do all of those things that had looked like so much fun my first two years.
I get sad about it sometimes bc I never got to wear a cap & gown & march across stage. I dont have any cool memories of high school. Nobody who I thought was my friend stuck by my side. I dont even get invited to my class reunions bc the school & students I was with the longest isnt the one I grauduated with. The school I do get invites to I dont have a clue who anyone is. The teachers I had in school dont even remember me (I know this to be true bc I've been back to the school). Sometimes its just depressing that is all, wanted to vent somewhere & this is the only place tonight.
Am I the only one who had a warped high school experience & missed out on all kinds of stuff? Am the only one who kind of gets sad about it from time to time?
