When I was young, my family was in the military. We were going to Germany. I thought that I would go over and have to go to a German school and speak German and forget how to speak English and I cried and cried, I was so afraid I would not be able to speak to anyone when we came home and I did not want to go. I was relieved to find they had American Schools and spoke English!!!

I used to believe there was secret chamber in our history classroom called kamerlik, and there was monster living there, who whispered "My preciousss" whole the time.

I realized it was only my imagination as they removed rectangular board which always seemed to be entrance to the kamerlik to me, and I understood there was nothing but regular wall behind it.

No more kamerlik

When I was doing my A Levels at college (about 17 years old) I spent one afternoon a week helping out at the local infants school (5-7 years). One day I noticed a couple of them giggling at me. When I asked what was so funny one girl admitted that they all thought I was really stupid, because I was forced to come back to small school at my age!

When I was in junior school I thought high school is so scary and I wish I could die before I get to high school. Well, here I am, surfing the internet in the computer room in my high school.

My junior school had 4 classes in a year group. When I first went to that school, I thought I would get a chance to be in every 4 class then go to the next year. When I was in 1st grade I actually told my teacher she got the list wrong when I found out I was going to be in 2nd grade the following fall. "Miss, shouldn't I be in the other 1st grade class?"

I remember when I was in grade school and the teacher would stamp our paper with a stamp that said dynamite I didn't know what dynamite was. I thought it was some kind of animal!

My elementary school had 8 grades with 4 classes each. So when I was 1st grader (1st class accidentally) I used to believe that students have to study every class in every grade. And that was 32 years of elementary school. Imagine my tragedy!

in seventh grade, my sister convinced this boy in her class that grover cleveland, the only president to serve two nonconsecutive terms, had a twin brother named clover who also became president. armed with this information, he eagerly raised his hand in class when the teacher mentioned cleveland and said "those are the cleveland twins, right?"

when i was in kindergarden, i had this elaborate fantasy that little, cartoon-style mice in little mouse clothes lived inside my school desk. i could hear them hammering or playing music if i put my ear to the desk. the sounds were actually caused by the echoes of any noise that someone scraping or banging on the desk made, and some of my brighter classmates used this to mess with me.

At the beginning of Kindergarten, my teacher told us that each week a student would become star of the week. That night I looked up at the sky trying to figure out which one was actually a kid.

I don't know where this came from, but when I was in second grade I started getting horrible panic attacks and developed a serious separation anxiety with my mom and had problems at school. (we still don't know why) But I thought that if I went into the middle stall in the bathroom at the school and started talking my mom could hear me. Bizzare, but it always made me feel better!

On my first day of school, I wanted to hurry in and find a seat in the first row - I thought the 1st row was for grade 1, the second row for 2nd grade and so on... Because I was tall, the teacher had me sit in the back... I was to shy to say anything, but I was very worried!

In the first grade, I heard one Mom talking to another Mom, bragging about how her child had gotten "straight A's"
I examined my own perfect report card very carefully, quite upset that my A's might not be straight.

When I was in playschool, I told my older sister, who must have been about 5 years old, and had never attended the playschool but had only ever seen it when she came with my mother to come pick me and my borther up, that the big beanbag seats were filled actually with the bodies of dead children, who the workers had killed, and the toilets were covered in blood and sick and that the workers lured kids into them and tortured and killed them, and that kdis were constantly disappearing. Also I told her that when playing in the sandbox me and my brother had discovered the bodies of children from the playschool buried under the sand, and she believed it ALL.
