- Functional Mediocrity, Arizona, Ditching ones own graduation for an L.S.D. trip.
School Sucks, But Education is Awesome! Teach yourself, you will be your own best instructor.
Going to School in Arizona, Period. Going to a high School in the early 1990's in Arizona, where, in an intervieiw with the local newspaper the Priciple of our school labled Many of my friends, would hassle us, with full cooperation of the Police because " Skateboarders and Punks are gang Members. They're part of the Skinheads and they Kill people." True quote. Funny enough His daughter, whom i briefly dated, ended up getting Pregnant by an actual Skinhead who had moved from L.A.... I thought that that was a bit of sweet irony.
I could not stand my High School. The Design was to enforce the Sports Status Quo.. We in the Arts Programs had Nothing to work with. I Dropped out of high school my senior year, I had had it, Functional Mediocrity was the by word. If you didn't play sports, you never saw a Academic guidance counsler, you were not informed of your after High School Choices. I went to a charter School that was for the Drug addicts and Pregnant teens, it actually turned into where the Artists and intellectuals would go as well. from staus of Drop out to A 90+ % graduation rate was funny. The main campus Could barely hold above a 55% Graduation rate. We weren't a GED School, it was a real diploma and the program was though the high school. I gradutaed there. One funny thing was that on graduation night for "My Class" the called my name to walk and receive my Diploma. I had decided long before I wasn't going to walk and informed them. So I decided to take some powerful L.S.D. That was the greatest graduation people were talking about it for days how i had held up graduation by not being there.
