          "The strange one," out of all of them. I hated high school. Couldn't wait to get out.

          What about you PacificDude ?

            Yep, I am the one sketching and drawing in the corner rather than doing what I was suppose to be doing..the strange one, but weird in a good way and hated high school. Never stole stuff though. Hated cliques and never was a part of one, happily not a part of one. high a lot too. Now, i never am. Never thought in terms of enemies and would talk with anyone and everyone. Never was one to initiate, watched and observed a lot. Friendly with all groups of cliques but not a part of.

              High school was a mixed bag for me. Lots of good and bad memories. I was a combination of the strange one, the princess, and the bad boy. Had friends in various different cliques.

                  With regards to highschool life in UK it was heaven in the sense that I survived without experiencing any bullying (12 - 15years) there was no popularity contestant on who had the coolest clothes in contrast to USA highschool culture where it seems you're judged on the way you're dressed you can seperate all the people into cliques stereotypes as is depicted in the movie The Breakfast Club.

                  It was only if you made it to the last 2 years (16 & 17years) where we'd be allowed to wear whatever you wanted but it had to be smart casual : )

                  Even though most of highschool we were all wearing same school uniform, still based on your good looks, personality, sports, how intelligent & creative you were there were still cliques of popular & not so popular kids I feel I was in the 'in between' clique where my friends and I were friendly we'd be able to get along with popular and not so popular kids in our year group.

                  There were difficult GCSE coursework and exams in 10 subjects we had to get through around 15years old and at that time for the Arts requirements (Art, Music or Drama) I chose Art so then at that time my friends consisted mostly of the Artsy kids we all hungout together alot on our lunchbreaks and after school doing all our creative Art work to pass the GCSE Art coursework but when I say we were Artsy I don't consider us stereotype strange (how it seems that the Breakfast club movie has stereotyped strange) I feel my Arsty group consisted of different creative types like very popular creative and not so popular quiet creative & very brainy geek creative kids, I'd just consider myself creative average kid who was very friendly but not super popular : )

                  The only thing that made me unique in my year group is I was literally the only British Asian brown kid with SE Asian heirtage (Sri lankan 'Sinhalese') there was no other British Asians African there was only one mixed-race friend half English / Pakistanian and she just looked like an English girl with dark hair you could hardly see that she looked mixed-race.

                  The only major hell experience for me was getting through all the study prep and pressure to pass the GCSE Maths, English (Language & Lit) & Sciences (Biology, Chemistry & Physics) with a C or above I thankfully managed to pass all thankfully with a C, some Bs for the other subjects my best grade was an A for Art : )

                  Then the last 2years (where you can wear dress smart causal) those years of highschool are called 6th Form where you specialise in 4 subjects called 'A-Levels' if you pass your A Levels with good grades those are the requirements to go to University in UK.

                  Or you can leave highschool at 16 with your GCSEs and some choose to go straight into a work or some choose go and do apprenticeships / vocational training like going to a FE (Further Education) college to train to be a hair dresser, Electrician, Culinery school etc

                  Or some choose to do their A Levels at a 6th Form college and then later go to University to get a BFA or BSc degrees.

                    It's interesting to me that (so far) most of us can identify w/The Strange One. In real life... she is the least popular of them all. Hey niftypebble21 I want to know what you were like in HS? I know you were popular, but it was in a deeper sense of the word. You were liked for all the right reasons - nothing superficial, etc. Am I right?

                        they needed a shop class guy who just minded his own business and got the school work done fast so he could spend maximum time on his own projects

                        i was also not part of any clique...i was friends with everyone

                        high school was alright but if i had to do it over id spend way more time having fun and a lot less working

                          I'm a mix, too. Except princess. Andrew, you've got to be number one! I won't tolerate any losers in this family. Your intensity is for shit! Win! Win! Win!

                            ahaha cheers to fun synchronicity : )

                            I think my entire family was very popular in that entire quaint beautiful lil English Yorkshire 'Otley' town because for many years we literally were the only brown family (No other British Asian or African families) even with my bro being 7 years older it was the same for him in his year group no other brown kids.

                            People with Sri Lankan Sinhalese heritage (unless you have Sri Lankan Portuguese, Dutch or English heritage) like me tend to have super long fun surnames lol so I remember when I was in all my classes in my 1st year of highschool all the teachers in all the subjects knew I was related to my bro because of the super long last name lol : )

                            Had I grown up in a major UK city like Leeds, Manchester or London that's were all the diversity is in UK.

                            The only one experience of bullying was in my 1st year of highschool and it was an incident that happened not from any of the kids in my year but some older kids I remember somehow tripped me up in the hallway and told me to go back to my own country & called me a 'paki' that's the only racist bullying incident I experienced in school.
                            For some reason if you're brown & look SE Asian looking some unintelligent people like to assume we're all from Pakistan lol that is the only time anyone ever called me a Paki and physically pushed me over because of the way I look which is very ignorant I'm very proud that no one in my own year group ever bullied me for the colour of my skin being brown♥

                              niftypebble21 I suspect it's our OCD that's joining us together so much... most TF peeps can comment in 1-2 minutes tops - it takes us MUCH longer...haha.

                              I'm glad that unpleasant incident was a rare event in your school days, and you were able to connect with like-minded people big time. I'm pretty sure I would have been kicked around big time, but I got the hell out of High School ASAP, so I managed to avoid all the drama and grief, etc. I think I would have managed better in the UK, but we cannot choose the place of our birth... haha.

                              It's interesting to compare American/UK movies about what it's like to be a public school student? To Sir with Love has violence and petty drama in it, but to a much lesser degree than what we see in The Breakfast Club. One thing I know for sure - I would not want to be a HS student in America as things stand now. The culture has become way too violent and materialistic for comfort. School shootings were not the norm during the 1980s. Also, movies tend to make real life seem much better than it actually is... most people go to the movies to escape reality and take a break from life for an hour or two. People buy expensive tickets for a reason... :-)
