I wish I had other options too. We lack them so much. I'm dropping out because of it. I think it'll make me happier to jump to a college even though I can't get into a good one yet.

Hopefully you do something to better fit you.

I was homeschooled for my high school life.
I was completely and utterly miserable. I wanted the high school life. People told me it I didn't miss much, but because they only experienced what they wanted.

I would have thrown myself to the wolves and crawled out with the alpha male's skull.

High school sucks. College is much better.

I agree. I wanted to drop out my junior year and try unschooling. My mom said we would discuss it after I pased my junior year, but my father wouldn't hear of it. So come September, I'll be back in school... But thankfully I will only have to take 1 or 2 classes that I didn't choose because tehre aren't many required classes for seniors. If you'd like to discuss this with them let me recommend the book The Teenage Liberation Handbook: How to Quit School and Get a Real Life and Education by Grace Llewellyn. I have it, it's great. If it doesn't work out, just stick it through. If they're going to make you, you might as well just get the diploma. It'll make life easier anyway (as much as I hate to say it).

I feel you. I still have one more year to go and it's going to be the longest year ever. I don't know how much longer you have but just hang in there, you can do it!

I <3 you.... I hated it too... but I stuck it out for people that love and care about me... in the end.. it was worth it....I just wish I had known that while I was going through it.

Blehh. I know what you mean, kiddo. I just graduated and I am so glad to be out of there. I'm not sure if you had the same thing, but for me it was the people. But senior year will go by really fast. You'll get to winter break, then spring break, and then boom, graduation. You can make it!

Wow. :[ I know a lot of people hate (my) high school, but I enjoy it. It was so much better than middle school; I've got three years to go, but I'm scared. ><
FragileReveries Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
Me too....
But you can pull through. It can't be much longer now. What's a few years to a whole lifetime?
Ptolemaeus Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2008
I don't know what your homelife is like, but you might have other options. I'd check out the Teenage Liberation Handbook, by Grace Llewellyn. Highschool is not the only way to get educated, and probably not even the best. Whatever you end up doing, I pray you find a way to be happy.
MsCrys Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2008
I hated it too and I ended up dropping out. Stay, fight through the hate. If you don't, I can promise you, you'll regret it. :hug:
NocturnalKitten Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2008
I couldnt stand the place..

actually ive been taking homeschooling i just... havent done any of the work for months cause it bored me to tears pretty much..
im more likely to do somethin about my education now though.. -shrug-
ShadowRittach Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2008
I hated highschool almost purely for the people in it. I couldn't go a day without sitting there and fuming because of how much I hated those people that made the experience so much worse. I didn't even see what the big fuss was about walking at graduation, I just wanted to be done with it, screw the cap and gown bullcrap.

Last 6 months woo! hang in there, I know it's tough , who likes school anyway? just try and take it a day at a time and before you know it, it's almost over!
stacey-woo-x Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
high school was the most depressing 5 years of my life, i dont blame you, but lol at "merry fucking christmas" on the wall.
isolated-poptart Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2008  Student General Artist
Gosh, secondary school nearly drove me to suicide on more than one occasion.
Stick in there its over before you realize.
SilencedVoice Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2008  Hobbyist Writer
Don't worry; you'll be out soon. The last year actually flies by. Hang in there!
KurosakiHisoka Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2008
High school does sure blow. Being an adult rocks! :heart:
GreenFaerie13 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008  Student Photographer
There is something you can do about it!
Look into online schooling.
That's what I have to do, now.
unforgivenlife Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008
i hate to say it but enjoy your high school years because later on you'll wish you were back there.
truepenny Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008  Hobbyist Writer
I really have no words of comfort...high school is crap. It's been three years and I swear to God I still wake up everyday thankful I'm not going to high school again.
MicheruShinearo Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This is my last week and I'm sooooo glad because I hate my school.
I love sum of the teachers but the kids, OMG.
Hang in there! Once grad comes u'll be so relieved!
Riku-of-Darkness Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008  Hobbyist Writer
I don't blame you. High School is a cesspool of betrayal and despair...or that's how I remember it. If you're not this way or that, then you may as well be dead. I hated having to always be "put" into a group because no one wanted me there otherwise.

If it weren't for the one friend who was just as outcasted as me, I could say, without exaggeration, that there was nothing I liked leaving behind in that hell. Just try and hold on; once it's done, you never have to return.

*puts on old man glasses*
High school is a terrible experience while you are living through it, but looking at it through the lense of time you will see that it was some of the most care-free and wonderful years of your life.

As long as you are awakened to the ridiculousness of it all, you can look upon it with bemusement
baby-alien91 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008
Well.. I only have one year left of school and honestly, as excited as I am to leave, I'm kinda sad. I won't be seeing lots of my friends again, at least not after a little while, most likely, and I'm so involved with stuff (choir, musicals, etc.) that I'm actually going to miss it, at least for a little while. I'm going to be sad at grad I think. High school has actually been an amazing, amazing experience for me so far, and it makes me sad that it's not like that for everyone.
SasuMonkey Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008
SAME HERE. If I didn't care about getting an education, I'd be out of that damn place.
Wishaway Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008
I'm exactly the same way.

One and a half years and counting.
EiceartInbheLadarna Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008
heh, I was lucky. I dispised my high school, and by my sophmore year was mostly repeating shit I already knew anyway. So my parents let me drop put of public school and get a GED.

Anyway, best of luck to you ST

I wish I was home schooled. I'm already anti-social, it would just save me the embarrassment.

I agree, three years left.
It wouldn't be so bad if there weren't people that caused drama.
amorecum Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2008   Photographer
people cause drama everywhere
i graduated high school two years ago,
and there's not any less drama in college or at work than there was in high school/middle school
it's just that when you get older
(as long as you're not the one causing the drama)
you start to realize that it doesn't matter any more
and you start to figure otu how to live your life without letting the idiots affect you as much as they did in high school.

Somehow I made it through.

I have hope that everybody can, because of that.
Skaie Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008  Student General Artist
I'm done with the homework, and the projects, and the superficial people. I have 2 more years. However, I love highschool. I love my friends and the memories.

All I can say is try to make the best of it, cause it only lasts a few short years of your life (well, they feel long).
GuideShadow Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008
I actually enjoy high school, I'm only a freshman [almost done with fresh man year, finals this week] but it's not that bad.
flamemetalalchemist Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008
I know what you mean... I hate high school and I want to get out. If it weren't for the kids it might be better. My mom is the only reason I'm still there though, she'd honestly kill me if I dropped out and probably lick me out as well... -_-
Azpep Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008   Writer
Depends on your attitude towards it and the people in your school I guess. I got lucky I found a great group of friends and my teachers are great. Sorry that you didn't have such luck D=
sweetangel4eva11 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008
High school is shit. I just finished my first year.

Hang in there.
m0riendi Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008
so true! right now I'm in the middle of highschool it's been so hard...specially because I don't like what I am studying and I feel I can't give up 'cause my parents would be even more disappointed with me 'cause 'till now I've never been able to finish anything :X but the thing that makes me even sad it's to know that I am doing this for them and yet they can't show me respect for that. :|

Kenyahp666 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008  Hobbyist Writer
I think everyone wants out of high school.

They say its the best years of your life. I don't know why they lie like that...
Demented-Alchemist Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008
I'm glad to say that I've graduated. My highschool, I'm glad to say, wasn't all THAT bad, but I was also homeschooled most of my life. But, regardless, high school can be hell.

But I know how it must feel. Hang in there. :hug: <3

I'm sick of it too.
And I still have 2 more years.
I'm just done with all the stress.
