I guess it has taken me many years to figure it out. I guess I should have figured this out in first grade or was it kindergarten when I was \"asked\" to leave. It didn\'t get much better from there on. I don\'t even remember much about elementary school, seems like I was in a bunch of them.

Let\'s see from there I guess we move on to junior high. Again I guess you could say I wasn\'t the prize of the school or should I say schools. I went to a couple of them and even missed most of I believe 7th grade since I was locked up in some place. I wasn\'t too successful there either. I never could learn to just keep my head down and go along with things. Anyway to make a long story short, all I remember is there was a LARGE woman sitting on me while others were putting leather restraints on me. They took me up to the main building where all the nuts were. That was scary. I cried. I was 12 and surrounded by real nuts talking to themselves and all.

My mother wanted me to do the grade over that I missed, but they tested me and said I was fine. I tell you it\'s not easy being unsuccessful in life when everyone tells you how successful I should be. I finally made it to high school. I skipped about 80 days and so had to stay back. For my second year I ended up living with some family and I made it through 9th grade of course kicking and screaming the whole way. At one point the teacher refused to even hear my voice. If I had to say something he wanted for me to write it down. I had so much potential according to him he just couldn\'t understand why I do the things I do. I guess he didn\'t realize that not everyone in life is going to be successful.

Well made it to 10th grade and then, I quit school and that family who had been so good to me. I still feel bad over that. I didn\'t really do anything wrong I just left. (I never burned too many bridges in life, just pick up and go). So there I was at 16 out on my own driving...
