Response to Live and Learn (Reply #79)

Mon Nov 9, 2015, 08:05 AM

81. I am a black High School drop-out.

 

There ya go. Ended my high school career in an inner city gang infested school. Spent a few years in nice white areas as well. Gifted programs. Meh.

Of all the people on here I and a few others have lived that life that people here discuss in academic terms.

If you want a script just pm me. Too much bad shit happened to just tell it.

Now, my ancestors? Grandma was an orphan, ten kids. Husband an undocumented immigrant, Spain. Deported. Denied SS for years due to being left out of the New Deal. Poverty until my mother was in her late twenties. She was a teenage mother. Her mother started when she got married at twelve. Nobody finished high school. I ged'd out to work to pay rent. Back in school now. Still easy. Whatevs. Did everything. Gangs. Whatever was going on.

There you go. Now you know. Not what you think. I am the first to not rely on Welfare and shit like that. And I won't. Die first. Can't go back to that shit. Ever. So I will finish school inlike all the rest. My dad might be proud if he hadn't Phillip Seymour Hoffman'd himself outta here when I was 15.

And so the struggle continues......
