Once again this may range from Kindergarden to 12th grade. Share with us the worst memory of being in school that you feel comfortable sharing. For me this one is easy. We went to a very small school and everyone knew everyone. Even if you were not great friends with someone, you knew them and they mattered. I remember the day that we got the news that one of the people in our high school had died. The entire school was devastated. I remember being in tears the whole day and feeling like the world had just crumbled around me. I wasn't "great" friends with him but I knew him and he was very likable and outgoing. It later was revealed that it very well could have been suicide, which was even more difficult to accept. I have to say that was the worst memory from my school years. On a better side to this, the entire school came together. His funeral was packed. People played his favorite song for months and talked about good memories of him. I will never forget him nor how the whole community became closer during that time.

My worst memory has to be from std I. I was just new from kindergarten where the rules were not very strict and as kids we could just open our lunch box and pop something in and the teacher would tell us not to do it in a very indulgent way. So in class I too I wanted to do the same and as my ill luck would have it, it was the time the Princi paid a visit and she caught me in the act and called me up. Well I was shaking like a leaf to say the least and my first instinct was to swallow the thing which I did and which apparently made her angrier. So she dragged me to her office and kept me in detention and my mom was called and…… Well, you get the picture, don’t you!

Hmmm...the worst time in my school years was the second half of the 7th grade and the first half of the 8th grade. I wasn't happy with anything in that time. There was one really mean kid, lol. But of course I have learned alot from that experience, so in a way it is a good thing it happened...it obviously happened for a reason. If that part of my life was any different I might be a totally different person today. Happy myLotting!

Oh that was a rough time for me too. I think a lot of kids are finding themselves at that time and some of us feel very lost. I love your outlook of "it happened for a reason" and that you can see that now but I know from experience that it sure didn't feel like that then. thanks so much for sharing this.

My worst memory would have to be when I tried out for the football team and failed miserably. This was in primary school so I was quite young with not much confidence. That might not sound so bad but at the time my world was ruined. At least I did not cry like my friend who was also not picked

Quite a lot actually, especially when I first came to a new school, the big trouble is no friend, the difficult thing is to find one or some friends who u really like to hang on with, it could take me a long time. I still remember my A-level, I could got 1 best friend in 2yrs, however I got 3 classmate who really did not like me and I even don't know why. Another thing is about exams, so many exams in A-level, too much pressures, everybody want to be perfect and top one, but as u know, only has one person can be the best, so we have to compete with others, no enough sleep time and countless homework and revisions. Fortunately, I went to my favorite university finally. Now when I think back, I think those things that I did are not worthless and i did not regretted. School life always passed so quick. I seem feel that I just undergraduate yesterday...

School time is so wonderful. You get to have so many good and bad things all packed into one. My worst memory is of the time when I changed schools and nobody in the new school wanted to be friend with me. Don't know why but that was the case. But I survived, lol. I made friends and by the time I was going to leave school, I made some really good friends and enemies. And one day one of my so called enemies started poking fun at me. I think that was the last day of school and even though i was known for my patience, I retorted and he came to punch me. I clearly remember avoiding his punch and holding him by his neck and pushing him back. Oh my it as fun. It's as clear as a HD video. bourne

Hi all, schooldays wer good for me.As I was a well studying boy,i had many happiest moments,i was very happy wen i won the first prize in the science quiz, literature quiz & a quiz pgm that held as part of the Hiroshima day, ( after reading abt me in the school newspaper, even senior girls came to my class to c me).i cant forget wen i defeated seniors and got the first in a highly competitive quiz& my class teacher shook my hand.cant forget wen i got trophy in the school assembly & my classmates' celebrations. but on the other side: as i told earlier i had a gudwil in my school, but one day, wen teacher invited me to sing a song( i used to sing songs in class), i sung, but i lost the tune in the middle, since the sound came was a litle funny, evrybody started laughing loudly, i thoght i lost all my gudwill, i stifned.it wasnt a sin, but my subconscious mind tuk it seriosly& i lost the power to sing in class.
