My Life Story so far with Education

     When I was five or so, I attended kindergarten. The first day was scary, frightening. I had to leave my family just to spend eight hours of my life learning things that I could care less about. I made glittery things, laid awake during nap time, and had a weird bully. I already knew how to read, so I was smart to some extent, but...
     The next year, I had first grade, where my best friend became my worst bully, and where I got in trouble for throwing a rock up some strange and purposeless thing with a friend. My teacher was more or less unaware of most things going on for the most part. That grade was also when I threw up on my way to class, the breakfast they served that day being nasty.
     After that, I had moved in with my grandmother, who was extremely religious (which is why I'm atheist) and paranoid. She would not give up her address, so me and my sister had no public schooling for years. During my schooless years, I read, and did math in math work books, which did nothing for me.
     When I did get back to schooling at fifth grade, I was a real good reader, socially awkward, and TERRIBLE at math. I didn't know how to do long division until 6th grade, and I still to this day cannot multiply decimals.
     Any-whale, since I was 8, I was one to always write stories and draw mini comics. Throughout my life, I have gone through many career choices in my head, but it wasn't until a few years ago that I wanted to become a writer. I have read a lot of great books in my life, and I wanted to create my own stories with my own made up characters.
     Well, I am a level higher in math than expected, and my urge to write has been slowly diminishing due to growing distraction and aggravation.
      But luckily, I still have years to go with my education.

  1. ha any-whale but any-whale I never knew that you didn't have Quote-on-quote traditional schooling! That's actually pretty cool also I think that you definitely are higher level than you may have started out to be.

  3. It's interesting how your grandmother took you out of school for that long. It makes me wonder how your experience was coming back to school in 5th grade after those years. Even though you weren't in school for a few years, from the classes we have been in together, I can tell you are a very intelligent and well spoken person.
