I was born at 6 months. I was so tiny and red when I was born. Me and my mum nearly died. We were at seperate hospitals so my dad travelled between them and prayed a lot . Still feel like I need more time chilling in the uterus tbh. I think Might be drawn to my mum more than other people my age. I wonder what it would have been like if I'd have been born full term as I am naturally slow physically (like on sports day I tried as hard as everyone else to run but was wayyy behind them. I think there may be a video of my Granny laughing at it lol) and stressed which have been said to be syptoms of my early birth. Also I still enjoy Cbeebies and am quite childlike but maybe that's just my personality.
That was chapter 1. I may follow with more.

Born in 1994 in Greenwich. Lived a pretty normal life throughout school.
Decided when I was at college that I didn't want to go to uni in England but instead wanted to study my degree in Australia.
Applied for UQ, got accepted, left all my family and friends at the start of 2012 and now I'm living a life beyond my wildest dreams.

Born in 1996 in Stafford. I have 2 sisters and 1 brother. 2 of the siblings I don't see because of arguments and all that rubbish.
I went to a first school, then proceeded to go to primary school but had to move because I got bullied. Then I got bullied again through the second primary school but I didn't move, I continued onto high school which was hell. That was the start of depression and anxiety.
Although I did have a pretty awesome childhood. Other the the bullying and other things. My nephews were born when I was quite young so I treasure them all I can.
When I finished school, I started talking to this guy and I fell for him real bad. That was the time I went to college to study health and social care. He turned out to be a douchebag, since he made my depression worse. It was quite an abusive relationship. Anyways I got rid.
Currently, aged 18. I am the happiest I have been since I was about 7 years old. I feel so free from everything. I'm currently taking a year out, starting college again to do a foundation year in art and design and will study something on the borderline to that. Maybe graphics.

Born at over 11lb by Caesarean section in Ashford, UK in July 1995
Lived in a village near Dover all my life
Have a sixteen-year-old brother
One of my best friends has been my friend for over fifteen years (we met at primary school)
Had a pretty happy time at primary school, apart from in Year 3 when I was really unwell and I had a teacher who hated me!
Got to secondary school and was top of my year. However, I was quite badly bullied for three years.
2008 was the worst year of my life by far. Not only was I being bullied, but my grandfather was in hospital from September 2007 until he died in October 2008 (he had about five spells in ITU, as well). July 2008 was the worst by far. My grandfather had just come out of ITU again, when my 11-year-old cousin died in a freak bike accident, which was traumatising in itself. Then one of my "friends" saw that I was emotionally very frail by that point, and decided to pick on me and try and isolate me. It worked, and she did it the day before my cousin's funeral! (Funny how when she was upset about something minor, I'd have to be there at her demand, but when I'd just had something happen to me that traumatised me for about a year, it was still all about her because she wouldn't be centre of attention.) I also split up with my first boyfriend after we'd been together six months, and lost my cat three days before my cousin's funeral (we'd lost another cat a few weeks before). I still bore the emotional scars a year later, and even if you gave me all the money in the world, I would never return to this period or the months that followed it. However, I came out of it a lot stronger and I'm now frequently described as a strong and happy person!
Got the top GCSE results in my year. I got 3A*, 3A and 2B, as well as a B in AS chemistry (which I was the only person in my year to sit) and ended up in the paper. At the time I wanted to be a doctor or a vet, and had applied to stay at my secondary school for sixth form to do the biology, chemistry, maths and something else (think it was physics) as I stupidly thought that moving would complicate my A level chemistry. I knew it was a terrible school, with less than 30% getting 5A*-C, but once the bullying stopped I loved being there. Stupid mistake. Two weeks later, the school sent me down to the local grammar school for sixth form because I was "too bright for them" and they changed the A level sciences to BTechs. Because everything was such a blur, I never got to do the A levels I wanted. Instead I ended up doing maths, further maths, chemistry and history, and I hated two of them with a passion (history and further maths).
At sixth form, I lost my confidence academically, which particularly showed in the lower sixth and in further maths. I did alright in my AS levels, getting 4Bs, and my overall results were, too, with 3Bs and a C. However, I didn't believe in myself, and when I did try, I did get A grades. But my confidence only came back towards the end of upper sixth, by which point it was too late. I know I could've got A grades, as all my chemistry exams for A2 and resits were A grades, but the damage was done. I have learned my lesson to never let things like that knock you down.
Took a gap year at my local wildlife park in the education department- loved it (and still do!). Went from a very shy to very confident person! Also got to see some pretty cool stuff that I won't forget until the day I die; for example, seeing an eight-hour-old African elephant and watching her grow!
I'm now at Plymouth University doing environmental science, and loving every moment (well, nearly every moment!). I have made lots of really good friends, doing better than expected in my course, am nearly constantly laughing with friends, and loving being in Plymouth even though it's 300 miles from home.
As far as the future's concerned, I'm dead set on being a wildlife conservationist.Last edited by ChemicalBond; 24-01-2015 at 02:51.

Well you're really asking two questions there. The first one takes me back to 1934. Admiral Burn had just reached the pole, only hours ahead of the Three Stooges...

Thanks to everyone for sharing their stories. It's so inspiring! I think it is good to bear in mind that you are never the only person going through something, no matter how lonely you feel.
Btw, are you guys not worried that people will be able to link the story to you through your TSR account?Last edited by Zefiros; 24-01-2015 at 12:49.

Now, this is the story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel Air
In West Philadelphia, born and raised
On the playground is where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool
And all shootin' some B-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys who were up to no good
Started makin' trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
And said, "You're movin' with your aunty and uncle in Bel Air"
I begged and pleaded with her the other day
But she packed my suitcase and sent me on my way
She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket
I put my Walkman on and said, "I might as well kick it!"
First class, yo this is bad
Drinkin' orange juice out of a champagne glass
Is this what the people of Bel Air are livin' like
Hmmm, this might be alright
But wait, I hear they're prissy, bourgeois and all that
Is this the type of place that they should send this cool cat?
I don't think so, I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for the prince of Bel Air
Well, uh, the plane landed and when I came out
There was a dude look like a cop standin' wavin' my name out
I ain't tryin' to get arrested yet, I just got here
I sprang with the quickness like lightning, disappeared
I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said fresh and had a dice in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was rare
But I thought, nah forget it, yo home to Bel Air
I pulled up to the house about seven or eight
And I yelled to the cabby, "Yo homes, smell you later"
Looked at my kingdom, I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the prince of Bel Air

I am 1/4 Chinese but was born in the uk. I left secondary school and now go to an amazing sixth form with hopes of going to university to become a doctor ( after an illness at age 13, I was in awe of how much they helped me and this inspired me to do the same!) I love anything medicine related and spend most of my current spare time in the library ( boring I know).
