I didn't hang with anybody in Grant, I used to hang out at castle golfland in the early 80's and some of the people I hanged with went to Grant High, they, the females, said, hey come to Grant, cause I was going to Van Nuys High for 10th grade. I hated Van Nuys High, so much drama rama, I hung out with the wrong crowd, stoners, drugs etc etc. Everybody was fucking everybody within their inner circle. I don't do that, I'm just not that type of a girl, it doesn't turn me on, it turns me off. And the preppies were no different. I took Art History, and there was this preppy dude, seated next to me. I loved Art History, I went to that class every day, others I ditched. Anyway, so preppy dude, would put the moves on me, try to flirt. I decided to have some fun at his expense. One day I came in dressed to impress, make up etc etc the next day, I'd walk in, no shower, no make up, jeans, tshirt to gage and he'd be like a dick to me, I did this a few more times and I gaged it right. He'd be nice to me, flirty when my appearance suited him and on the days it didn't, he'd ignore. That was a nice little experiment. I still remember what I learned in Art History, the Romans, the Christians, catacombs etc etc. I love History.
Anyway, the next semester, I walked in the quad along with Sherry Gold and we both looked at each other and we were like drama rama, we both decided not to come back to Van Nuys High. She quit school and I did an address change and went to Grant.
When I got to Grant, all of a sudden all of the people that were supposedly my friends, no longer knew me, they didn't want to hang out, they were mean during nutrition etc etc. I went there cause I assumed based on conversations with those girls that I'd have a home to go to, girls that would be real friends. I found out the hard way, another stab in the back, another set up. So, I didn't hang with anybody, I went to the library or off campus and just read my books and notes. I got so good at that, that I would just take off days from school and then show up for my tests, walk in, take the test and get A's.
The day I graduated, a month before I wanted to quit, I was really really bored, anyway, I stuck it out and walked up there to get my diploma, a whole crowd of people were cheering me, people I didn't even know but they knew me. It was really weird. I also never went to prom at any schools, I went to.
If you're worried about this, High School Bullshit, I've left it all behind. I won't ever run into any of these people, they are my past, you are my future. And what an awesome future, we're gonna have. I can't wait till we meet. Btw, I have a high IQ, Mensa style. And it hasn't gone down.
