        Hiya Guys and Dolls,

        The school year has finally kicked off and i see all the little cuties walking to school with their school bags and lunch buckets. And of course a lot more traffic with school buses and parents driving them.

        I thought back to when i was in grade school and probably the toughest thing for me was when we moved and i changed to schools in second grade. Took awhile for me to adjust and for kids to accept the "new kid" in the class.

        I was always in trouble for "day dreaming" in class every single year! My parents would say "NO more day dreaming in school"! But every year i would find myself looking out the window and having countless teachers pull the shade on me or move my desk far away from the window!

        My favorite subject was spelling and my worst was math.

        What kind of student were you and what was your favorite subject?

        I was a math whiz even skipped 7th grade math because 2 many kids.  The people in charge didnt care.  1st day of 7th grade off to the prinicipal's office I went and got told I was 2 report to 8th grade math.  I scored in the top 10% in math and lowest 10% in reading on those achievement tests.  At age 37 I was tested during my divorce and here on a scale of 1 to 8 I was a 7 for a.d.d..  That explained alot.  To this day I dont comprehend what I read.  I used my math to get a BBA with a major in accounting but never passed the cpa exam because of Accounting Theory and Business Law.  The professional who tested me couldnt figure out how I got a college degree because I had no clue what I was reading.  I spent hundreds of hours memorizing notes for midterms and finals.  To this day I cant even organize my sock drawer.  I got yelled at by everyone of my bosses at every job because my office was always a mess and to this day my house is a disaster because I got stuff piled everywhere.  This is normal to me because its just another a.d.d thing.

        I was very good in spelling and reading. I'd have to say that 5th and 6th grade were my favorites. Those were the sex ed years and I caught on very quickly.

        I moved to a new state every 3 years so I had to learn to fit in.

        I didn't push myself until college.

        My son, 14, had math 6th hour the last 2 years.  This year it's 5th hour.
        On the 2nd day of school, after math, he went to his locker, gathered his things and starting heading for the bus.  It dawned on him he had one more class.

        He entered class 3 minutes late and the teacher said "This outta be good".  Son thought about lying but decided the truth was better.  When he said "I thought school was over", the class giggled and he had to do 5 pushups in front of the class for punishment.

        His choices were push ups, sit ups, singing in front of the class or detention before school the next day.

        we lived in our hood for 17 years.. i was famous for "out talking the teachers".. not in a bad way, i was a curious child, BUT i was always in trouble for that.. whats weird is i hated english/journalism and loved math and biology, but tables have turned for me.. i'm terrible at math, i wouldn't know an organism from an electron.. but give me a writers pen and paper, some incentive with imagination.. and ooo weeee i'm gone!

        how about.. "the crush".. you know the one boy that was the cutest one in the class that you secretly crushed on forever.. well FINALLY after the 5th grade.. he was in my class and sat right behind me... i came to school a little sick one day, i raised my hand to use the restroom, the teacher was ignoring me.. she finally answerd me and said wait for recess.. well i couldn't i pee'd in my chair then threw up all over my desk.. and that crush.... ugh i had to just forgetaboutit...

        The only thing I remember from first grade was that kids were not supposed to know how to read and write, the teacher was supposed to teach us, but I was already reading and writing and that made me some kind of a superstar back then. Then, in second grade, we had elections to pick a student to be the "head of the class", the kids voted and guess who got elected... Maybe I should have gone into politics

          Your writing has served you well then Johnny.

          Spelling and mathematics were my favourite subjects.  I hated history and geography but I think that was down to the teachers.  They made  potentially very interesting subjects so boring.

          When I reached 15, I went to the head mistress and told her I was fed up with the home economics course and could I give it up and do something more worth while.  She offered me a few choices and I chose driving.  I actually learned to drive at school around the tennis court.  It was much better than learning about dust.

          I was a lot like Johnny... when I got to a grade I already knew what they were teaching that year... of course that left plenty of time for me to get into hot water, so I did... they were going to skip me a grade, but I was too short of all things. Everyone would be much taller than me, which was just silly because they already were taller than me in my own grade... by 6th grade they had me tutoring 2nd graders to keep me busy and heck they were taller than me too!

          Then came Junior High... and it was the '60s... you know what they say about the '60s... if you remember them, you weren't there mannnnnnnn... so, I'm a psychedelic relic...

          Next I remember it was the mid '70s and I was in business college taking accounting and teaching in the classes I was taking because once again, by the time the class got there I already knew that stuff and they were short on teaching staff... the good part of that was that I got to finish 3 months ahead of everyone and I had honors in all subjects except typing which they got me thru by a hair and called it good enough! had to get them to correct some of the textbooks too... I could not stand it when they would say my work was wrong and the book was always right... after I sorted out a few of the books' errors they stopped arguing and corrected the books!

          Loool, such great stories, guys! I was much like Johnny, except that I pretended not to know how to read and write in order to fit in (and apparently, I liked repeating syllables and spelling after the teacher, along with the rest of the clas), so my mother almost got a heart attack when she came down to school to hear about her daughter's progress. She thought the teacher's gonna praise my advanced reading and writing skills, but all she got instead was: " Oh, Kat is doing well with drawing lines and spelling."

          Being picked on can be agonizing when your a child or for that matter any age. Thank God most people grow out of that.

          Your stories are awesome and it looks like we have a bunch of smarties!!

          Once i hit high school my grades weren't so great. I had to take the constitution test twice before i passed it!

          We all got picked on 1 way or another.  In junior high I had to ride the bus with a kid that was relentless when it came to picking on other kids.  For 2 years I had to listen to him call me "the zipper".  See I was 5' 9" inches and weighed 115 pounds.  When I stood sideways and stuck my tongue out I was mistaken for a zipper.  I could have been a super model along side Twiggy but unfortunately for me I had balls.
