Teenagers Share The Biggest Drama In Their Lives Right Now

There's no drama quite like teen drama. Reddit asked their teen users about their biggest sources of stress and drama, and their answers delivered in a big way. Read on for a dose of real-life Beverly Hills 90210...

1. Is It Mother’s Day Already?

The biggest drama in my life right now is that my mom wants to get back into my life after not seeing me and my sister for more than five years. To be honest, the two of us both feel that we are much happier and better off without her. But the guilt-tripping from people who don't even remotely understand our situation is truly making me crazy.

2. A Fair Weather Friend

The biggest drama in my life right now is the deterioration of my relationship with my best friend. For some reason, he gets a girlfriend and then all of a sudden decides that he never felt like we were real friends. He actually said that to me. He’s been spending as little time with me as possible since this started. But that's not even the worst part.

He also lied to me about whether he had a girlfriend for about three months. I’m not against him having one, I don’t care what he does in his private life. That’s his business. But he lied to me a lot and I have no idea why.

3. Holiday Gone Wrong

The biggest source of stress and drama in my life right now is that I just inadvertently messed up Father's Day beyond repair for the dad that I love more than anyone could ever comprehend. And to make matters worse, I'm pretty sure I also caused him and my step-mom to split up. I feel terrible about my family situation and it’s all I think about these days.

4. Mr. Lonely

I just graduated high school with the realization that I only have one actual friend. This is because I'm too shy to make new friends and I tend to burn all my bridges with the ones I do have. I don’t know why I do that, but I always do. And now it’s coming back to haunt me. Hopefully university will be better. I know I’ll try my best to change this.

5. My Country ‘Tis Of Thee

I live in Brazil and my father lives in the United States of America. My dad recently invited me to live with him in the US, and I want to go. But my mom won’t allow me to. I'm finishing up high school right now and I just turned 16. I'm not fluent in English, in fact my speaking is pretty bad. But that’s all the more reason why I want to move and practice speaking it on a daily basis.

This dilemma is really stressing me out because I know that whatever choice I make will affect the entire path of my future.

6. Friends In Low Places

I’m a teenager and the biggest drama in my life right now is the fact that I have no good friends who actually genuinely like me. I am a pretty popular person, and I have a lot of so-called “friends.” But I can tell that they don’t actually care about me and that they all just have their own ulterior motives for wanting to spend time with me. It makes me feel awful but I know it’s true.

7. Fearing The Worst

I’m currently a college freshman. I had a summer fling with a high school junior who lives five hours away. It slowly turned into both of us falling in love and thinking we are perfect for each other. It's been two months now since I've moved away to school and we've been good at communicating and staying in touch with one another.

We haven't fought at all yet and we both really want to make this relationship work. It seems like it's working out so far, but I'm constantly worried that we are just a couple of lovestruck, naive teenagers and that this will all come crashing down on us eventually. Needless to say, this fear has made me completely stressed out for the entire school year so far.

8. So Many Choices, So Little Time

The biggest source of stress and drama in my life right now is the fact that I just graduated high school and I now don't know what college to go to. This feels like the biggest decision that I have ever had to make and I literally can’t stop thinking about it all day long. I am so worried that I will make the wrong choice somehow and regret it for the rest of my life.

9. An Incredibly Bad Situation

Last night, after watching The Incredibles 2, I used all my courage to tell this girl I’ve been hanging out with for a couple of months that I like her as more than a friend. I wanted it to be a perfect moment, but it went so wrong. The feelings weren’t reciprocated on her end, and I now have a new hobby of going through coloring books to distract myself from facing the pain. I'm completely broken-hearted.

10. This Too Shall Pass

The biggest source of drama in my life right now is worrying about my upcoming final exams for high school. I am not convinced that I’m going to do well on them or even pass them all, and if I don’t I basically have no chance of getting into college. I am terrified of what my future will look like if I can’t get into college and pursue my intended plans.

11. Coping With Difficult People

Even though I am only a teenager, my life is full of drama and stress these days. My sister is an anti-vaxxer and is begging my dad for money while simultaneously trashing our whole family publicly on Facebook. Meanwhile, two of my four best friends are dating each other and it’s affecting my ability to get along with them on a regular basis.

They are in an incredibly toxic relationship where one threatens to break up with the other basically every single day, not to mention frequent guilt trips and other fun stuff like that. Like, for example, Friend One asks the rest of the group: “Hey, should I break up with Friend Two?” on a pretty much weekly basis. It makes everything really awkward for all of us.

They’ve already broken up about two or three times already, but they always end up back together. We’re all going away on a vacation together in two weeks, so basically we have to hope and pray that their relationship is strong enough to last until then because if they break up then the whole trip is essentially ruined.

12. This Is As Dark As It Gets

The biggest source of stress and drama in my life is the fact that I spend most of my days thinking about ending my life, but I can’t tell anyone or a professional because I will most definitely be put into a psych ward. Also, the fact that June will mark five years since my father’s passing has been weighing on me a lot. I hate Father’s Day and all of June.

13. Long Distance Relationships Are Never Easy

The biggest source of drama and stress in my life right now is that I really like this girl and I’m pretty sure she likes me too, but I can’t do anything about it at the moment. I'm currently abroad for an exchange program, and I'm afraid she might be over me by the time I come back. So far, she engages me in conversations a lot and tells me that she likes me, so I’m holding out a lot of hope.

14. A Bright Future

The biggest drama in my life right now is that I have zero ambition. I don't really even feel like a human being sometimes. Everyone has these fancy things that they want to do or become in the future, and I'm just kinda sitting here not really caring. I know I’m going to have to do something in the future, but I literally have no interest in trying to decide what it should be.

Teen dramaUnsplash

15. Bracing For A Change

I’m stressed because the group of people I've enjoyed hanging out with for the past few years is slowly falling apart. I'm too anxious around new people to make new friends, so I'm stuck desperately trying to hold my friend group together or be alone. I hate change and knowing that there’s nothing I can do about it in the long run really hurts.

16. I Get Around

I’m supposed to go to summer school tomorrow in order to fulfill a Physical Education credit. The thing is that I live like five miles away from the school, and they apparently don’t provide bussing. Both my parents work, and the only time when they can pick me up is three hours after the class ends during their lunch break.

They provided bussing other years for crying out loud! Why couldn’t they do it this year?? Honestly, worrying about how I’m going to get home for the next few weeks and whether I’m going to have to spend hours waiting around on my own is causing me a ton of stress and is the main thing at the forefront of my mind right now.

17. A Change In Her Position

A friend who has told me to my face that she was interested in a relationship with me has been leading me on for weeks. Today, she told me that she isn’t and never was interested in me. I don’t blame her, but I just feel so crushed and I've been spiraling. My depression is getting worse and I had stopped taking my antidepressants because I was trying to be happy without them for her sake.

Teen dramaPexels

18. The Times They Are A-Changin’

The most stressful thing in my life right now is realizing that I’m not going to be a teenager for too much longer. Being a teenager is all I know and I am not ready for the responsibilities of adulthood. Adulthood really sucks, but at the same time my teen years were probably the worst thing I'll ever experience. So I guess moving on won’t be all bad…

19. The Grand Return

In a few days, I’m going to be seeing my father for the first time in more than ten years. There has been loads of family drama playing out and dominating every single day of my life in the days leading up to this meeting. I honestly can’t wait for it to be over. It is causing me nothing but stress and anxiety. I wish my family situation could be different than it is.

Teen dramaPexels

20. Life Goes On

The biggest source of stress in my life right now is going from high school to college. This is my last summer with my best friends, because we’re all going away to different schools in the fall. We’ll still be friends, but I know it won’t be the same. Also, I had a sudden realization the other day that I won’t see most of my school friends ever again and it’s really bumming me out.

Teen dramaPexels

21. The New Romeo And Juliet

The biggest source of drama in my life lately is that my girlfriend’s mom decided that she doesn’t want her to see any guys. She literally won’t even meet me because that involves a guy in coming into her house. The mom divorced her husband and went totally bonkers. She now hates all men. But one day she went way too far. She even kicked my girlfriend’s brother, her own son, out of the house.

My mom didn’t know that when me and my girlfriend were hanging out with each other, it was without my girlfriend’s mom knowing. This information has now made her become really concerned. I always am honest with my parents, and so I told my mom that my girlfriend’s mom didn’t know. Now, my mom won’t let me hang out with my girlfriend because her mom doesn’t want us hanging out.

I’m really happy with my girlfriend and this is really stressful and saddening for me. I’ve always been a really good kid with great grades and sports and never breaking any rules, but in about 40 minutes I’m sneaking out to see her against the wishes of both my mom and hers. Wish me luck. I guess. If I get caught, I’m definitely going to need it…

22. Giving Them The Slip

The biggest drama I have to deal with right now is that I just lost all of my best friends because of a Freudian slip I accidentally let out during an argument. I meant to say one thing, but instead, I accidentally said something really personal and hurtful that I never would have said intentionally. My friends are all extremely mad at me and I don’t know if they will ever get over it.

Teen dramaPexels

23. Changing Her Path

The biggest drama in my life right now is that I am planning to have an intervention soon with my friend of mine who is currently letting substances completely ruin her life. Wish me luck. I really hope it can make a difference. She is such a good person on the inside, and I hate to see her life get destroyed the way it has been lately.

24. Why Do The Good Times Have To End?

I'm not sure if this is the right place to vent about this, but in another two weeks it'll be my birthday. Now, that would normally make me happy, but this year that is not the case. That is because I have recently realized that in just a few years I'll be considered a young adult, or an adult, or whatever you wanna call it. And I don’t like that one bit.

I feel like I haven't really gotten the chance to act like a kid as much as I want to. Pressure from school and teachers, uncertainty about my future schooling and careers, the constant loads of stress, all of that gets in the way. I'm always spending time worrying. Worrying about each and every little thing. And I can't stop.

Ever since I was a lot younger, I was told that I was mature and should be mature for my age. So I tried to shape myself to fit that expectation. I was always acting older than I really was. But now I'm exhausted. I’m sick and tired of acting. I've run out of any genuine feelings of ambition and drive because I'm just too emotionally tired.

My years as a youth are wasting away in a way I know I'll regret, but I've been unable to do squat about it, My head is still always so full of hopes for trying to succeed in a future that I'm not yet ready to face. I just want to be a kid. I just want to feel like it's okay to act like a kid. I don't want to pretend like I'm an adult. I want to stop drowning in this sea of stress. Even if only for a little bit.

25. The Worst Of Both Worlds

I don't have a huge pool of friends that I am able to be with or talk to on a regular basis, and I'm too huge of an introvert to find new people to try and be friends with. An introvert who loves to talk, what a surprising thing to see! But that’s the situation I’m in. I desperately want friends to talk to, yet I have enormous difficulty in talking to anyone.

26. Best Foes Forever?

I'm seventeen years old, graduating from high school in two weeks, and I hate my best friend. She's the single most annoying person I know. She acts stupid on purpose so that no one will take her seriously, but then she blames people for not taking her seriously. She never gives proper advice when I have to talk to her about my problems, but she is constantly talking about her problems.

Her problems usually consist solely of things like: "Two boys like me, which one should I choose?" There's this guy in our group of friends who likes her, and she knows that. She always invites him out to hang out with us. She shows him her Spotify playlists and the stuff she posts on her "private" Tumblr site about her emotions.

Then, she gets upset and thinks he's creepy for always hanging out with us. She complains about how he listens to her Spotify playlists and browses through her Tumblr blog. You know, the ones she told him to look at. She complains about some girls in our grade jumping from guy to guy, whereas she has been in a toxic on and off relationship for over a year. Oh, but it gets worse.

She's constantly trying to both become me and one-up me at the same time. If I buy an item of clothing, she'll go out and buy the same thing. If I mention I like a certain thing, she'll suddenly like that thing too. She's a snitch too. Whenever I confide anything in her, it should be known that it's between us. So imagine my surprise when her boyfriend confronts me about things I told her in confidence.

The real kicker, though, is that we aren't really best friends.I never tell her anything important about my life anymore. I've known her for ten years now, and we've never once hugged each other because she "doesn't like affection." Somehow, she has no problem showing affection towards the other people in our group of friends.

I'm still the only person she's even mildly close with in school, though. Because, if I'm being honest on behalf of my friends, I'm the only one who can stand her. I've never brought any of this up to her, obviously. Even though it's messed up, I can't just stop being her friend because she suffers from anxiety and I refuse to "seem" like the jerk in this situation, even though I know I'm not.

This September, I'll be moving three hours away for university and I have decided that I won't be the one to keep this friendship going if she isn't willing to make the effort to. If we fall out of touch over time, that's completely on her. I've dealt with this long enough. It’s caused me enough stress throughout high school. I don’t want it following me into the next chapter of my life.

27. Counting Your Blessings

For a while, I was lucky enough to have no drama in my life. I had a really nice girlfriend, school was going well, my favorite sports team won their championship, and I had a bunch of fun hobbies that I enjoyed in my spare time. Now, me and my girl broke up. So that has caused some more drama than I’m used to. But the rest of my life is still in pretty good shape, thankfully.

28. The Kids In The Hall

Tons of the kids at my school are jerks. One even went out of her way to call me "she" when she knows that I'm not a girl. Another one throws full-blown temper tantrums every time something doesn't go his way, as if he's a little kid or something. A third kid calls everyone a bunch of ridiculous and inappropriate names, as if that's an acceptable way to act in the real world.

Of course, he only does this stuff when the teachers aren’t around. This kind of high school drama drives me crazy.

Teen dramaPexels

29. Minding Your Own Business

Thankfully, I learned the hard way as an early teen that it doesn’t pay to get into any sort of drama with my classmates. As a result, I have managed to keep my social life pretty uneventful. The only "drama" I have to deal with nowadays is my assignments. And I’d like to keep it that way for as long as I can. High school drama is definitely overrated.

30. A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

I'm going to be completely honest. The things that are causing me the most stress in my life right now are girls and my jealousy. Whenever I feel attached to a woman and she talks about other people who she feels affectionate towards, I feel jealous. This happened last night. I was on a phone call with a girl, thinking I was special to her.

Then she starts talking about how she is currently texting this other guy but feels guilty because he has a girlfriend. She adds that the guy’s girlfriend already hates her. By the way, when she said she was “currently” texting this guy, she literally meant right that minute. She was doing it while we were having this conversation.

That made me feel just plain terrible. Then, she said the cruelest thing. She smiled and went, "He's also kinda attractive hehe" and I ask "what?" She says "nothinnn..." and changes the topic, saying the guy is flirting with her and that she feels so guilty. She then laughs and says something like, "I think this is a bit risky to send hehe."

I ask her what she sent and she says, "Look at your Snapchat, I’ll just show you." I looked and it was a naked photo of her freakin’ butt. Cool, I got a booty pic, but so did this other tool! She keeps talking about how his girlfriend is mean to her and how he doesn't really like his girlfriend but won't break up with her.

She then says that they're playing 21 Questions and that she jokingly told him that one of them was going to end up naked that evening. That was when jealousy struck me hard. I stopped talking to her and being engaged in our phone call. I didn’t actually hang up. But anything she'd say I would just either ignore or say "mhmm" to.

She kept hinting at her phone losing battery even though it was clearly plugged in. She eventually said that it was at 1% and that she had to go. She wished me a good night and I quickly said bye and hung up. She messaged me afterwards saying "Sleep well!" and I left her on read. I was so upset that I couldn't even respond to her. I stopped wanting to think about it and decided to just read a book to take my mind off of it.

As angry as I am at her, I'm also envious of the guy. He sounds like a complete tool, yet she likes him anyway because of his looks. I'm envious that I can't be like that. I'm envious that he can act however he wants and women will still go for him. I'm envious of his apparent good looks while I kind of look like a nerd, sadly.

Apparently, girls will just send him naked photos like it’s nothing. I'm also really jealous that he's getting this specific woman. I've been nothing but a saint to her for months and yet I am probably now stuck in the friendzone. What a teenage problem. But a real problem to me nevertheless. This is all I have been thinking about all day.

31. The Talk Of The Town

My friends and I are in the middle of a multi-day debate about what to name our social media group chat. That has been the biggest source of drama in my life for the last few days. I guess I should probably be happy about that fact, compared to some of the other things that people my age are unfortunately dealing with.

32. That’s Entertainment!

Some teenagers out there have some serious problems. Luckily, I am not one of those people. My biggest problem right now is that I’m always mad that not a lot of people watch my YouTube videos. I mean, come on! I put so much work into those videos! Is it so much to ask for a few people out there to be interested in watching them?

Teen dramaPxfuel

33. Coming Out

The biggest source of stress and drama in my life right now is the fact that I just had the biggest epiphany of my life. I realized that I am gay. I don’t know what to do about it or who I should tell. The way I decide to handle this is probably going to be a defining moment of my life and I know that I will never forget everyone’s reactions when I tell them the news.

Teen dramaPexels

34. Break-ing The Ice

My girlfriend wants to take a break from me, but we still cuddle, hug, hold hands, and go on dates. She says the reason is that we weren’t friends for that long before we started dating, and she thinks we need to just be friends for a while. I’m confused because I thought that we were each other's best friends during our romantic period. But I guess not.

Teen dramaPexels

35. Boarded Up

I’m already on summer break, but the guy I've been crushing on on-and-off for like the past two years told me a week before the end of the school year that he was transferring to a boarding school out of state. He is someone who I have a ton of history with and knowing that he’s leaving has caused me a ton of drama and stress all summer long.

I don't really know what I'm gonna do without him because, besides the fact that he's probably the person I've had the strongest feelings for ever, he's also one of my closest friends and I'm still kind of shocked over the fact that he's not gonna be here when I need someone to talk to or hang out with. I cry every time I think about it.

We both just finished our freshman year of high school and I have known him since the start of middle school. But we didn't really start talking or get close until last year, because it was the first time that we were both in mostly the same classes. Now, I can’t imagine my life without him. I wish he didn’t have to move away.

Teen dramaUnsplash

36. One Degree Of Separation

On the cusp of me heading off to college to start my Bachelor's degree, my dad has just moved away to another town for a new job and my mother is extremely frustrating to live with. These facts are what I am by far the most stressed about right now. But at the same time, I'm trying to make things work with my mom and hoping for the best.

Teen dramaUnsplash

37. A Slight Change Of Plans

My best friend has a girlfriend and they have been together for six months now. He is absolutely subservient to her because they have never slept together once in these entire six months. We were supposed to go to a countryside festival in my town, which I planned months in advance, and he just bailed out one me at the last minute.

Literally at the last minute. I was waiting for him at the entrance, only to receive a text from him saying that he wasn't coming anymore because he had to take his girlfriend shopping. I have never been so disrespected in my life. He and I are about to have some serious drama if he thinks he can just blow me off like that and that it’s no big deal.

Teen dramaUnsplash

38. The American Dream?

Although I am a teenager, I am ahead of most people my age academically. I just graduated from college and was immediately offered a decent job with my business degree. However, my problem is that I hate literally every single aspect of 9-5 jobs and the lifestyle that comes along with them. At the same time, I recognize that financial security is a huge luxury that so many people want but don’t have.

Because of that, I feel obligated to stay in this job that I know I’m going to hate. It's basically like I went to school for twelve years, which I hated, just so that I could get this job that takes up most of my week, which I also hate, just so that I can hopefully save enough money to retire and be happy... when I'm 60 years old?

Oh and also, while you're working a miserable 9-5 job, good luck trying to be positive enough to successfully find a wife and have a few kids. I mean, honestly. What the heck is this dream that everyone has? I am dreading every minute of this whole thing. I'm not knocking people for being responsible and getting jobs, I’m just saying that life is not all it's cracked up to be.

Teen dramaUnsplash

39. Find Me Somebody To Love

The biggest source of drama and stress in my life is the fact that I need a girlfriend really badly. I am extremely lonely and I really want someone to connect with and love. But it’s so hard to find that person, and it’s driving me crazy having to wait so long for it to happen. I’m hoping that things will get easier after high school.

Teen dramaUnsplash

40. Not On The Same Page

The biggest source of drama in my life right now is that a girl in my grade just found out that I really like her and that I have all kinds of fantasies about what we should do together some day. Unfortunately for me, life has other plans in store. I now am getting the impression that she does not share these fantasies of mine, and I am very worried that I just screwed up my whole relationship with her.

41. Going Through A Tough Time

In March, I was super stressed out and my parents kept pushing me and pushing me until I couldn't take it anymore. I told them that I wanted to end my own life. Things calmed down a little bit after that comment, but the feeling has never gone away. Nothing helps it go away. The best I can do is numb it for a little bit while I'm at work or playing video games or just doing a hobby.

But whenever I return to reality, I just continue hating myself and the life I have ahead of me. It's basically a self-contained crisis that I can't ask for help with because the people who should've been helping me don't seem to care and I don't have any friends or access to a social worker since I just graduated from high school.

Teen dramaUnspalsh

42. A Game Of Cat And Mouse

The biggest source of drama in my life right now is the fact that I spend all my time on the internet, even when I’m meant to be working. I should really do my work. But I just can’t seem to get my habits under control and I end up scrolling through various forums for hours on end, day after day. A lot of people are unhappy with me because of it.

Teen dramaUnsplash

43. The Outsider

I'm pretty pathetic. Like, everyone else at my school has actual friends and stuff, but then there's me on Reddit and Tumblr just binging on the posts all day. Whenever I try to make a new friend, it just kind of ends awkwardly. I could not be any more awkward of a person if I tried. I mean, the last time that I tried to start a conversation with someone new, the best opener I could think of was: “You kind of look like Guy Fieri with your new hair.”

The most 'social' I have been in high school was all the times that I've watched people have fun and do things on their Snapchat stories, but it's okay I guess. I'd rather write or do math because whenever I find myself in a conversation, it just feels like it’s not important or doesn’t go deep enough. Some people my age are so fake.

They will just do anything to get likes on Instagram, and they apply that mentality into real life, They say things like “The year was amazing” when, in reality, it was pretty darn mediocre for all of us. Nothing is real with them, and I don't know if they understand that. A lot of the time, their behavior depresses me. I get scared that maybe I'm not real. I don't exactly know how to explain it but yeah.

Teen dramaUnsplash

44. The Real You

I’m stressed out because I can’t tell if I actually like this guy, or if I just like who he is when he is on substances. I want to tell him how I feel, but I’m afraid to get rejected and lose the friendship we have now. It really bothers me that we have these conversations while he’s under the influence and I feel like we’re bonding, but then the next day he barely remembers any of it. It's so devastating.

It’s always as if that bonding pretty much never happened. It’s so one-sided that it feels isolating. He only hits me up first if he wants something from me. I just hate myself for caring about him far more than he probably cares about me. He’s been extremely kind to me before and has been willing to risk some things for me though, so I’m just overall confused. I hate his charisma.

45. School Days

The biggest source of stress and drama in my life right now is having to pick a college to go to. There are so many factors I have to consider when deciding where I want to go: money, friends, parents, closeness to home, education. It all feels so overwhelming and I don’t know how I’m going to ever make up my mind.

Teen dramaUnsplash

46. When Something Just Doesn’t Add Up

The most stressful thing in my life has always been math. I am still in high school so I am required to pass math courses every year, but I struggle with the subject immensely. It makes my life a living nightmare during the school year and I always have to give up hours and days of my free time just to be able to pass my tests. I absolutely hate math.

Teen dramaUnsplash

47. Phone With The Wind

My wifi just got disconnected and I have to make my 4G data last on my phone for the rest of the month. I know this may sound like it’s not a big deal, but when your entire social life is online and when you have no money to pay for anything other than the plan your parents get you, it can definitely be a lot worse than you think.  For the time being at least, this is the biggest drama that I’m dealing with in my life.

48. Making A Major Decision

The biggest source of drama in my life right now is the fact that I am about to go to college and I still have no idea what I want to major in. I feel like anything that I choose will box me into one area, but I feel like I won’t be fully happy in any one area. I have no idea what to do and the clock is ticking away. Pretty soon I will have to make a decision whether I want to or not.

49.  Teachers Aren’t Always Right...

The biggest drama in my life right now is the fact that I have a teacher who is being a total jerk to me. Let’s call her Ms. Module. One day, I went to ask her for some information about what I had missed since she was the one in charge of this elaborate project that we had to do. She told me all the info was posted online on her teacher page. I thanked her and left. You'd think that'd be that but not with this lady. I soon found out that she is a total lunatic.

The next day, I got a bunch of texts from sophomores and juniors informing me that Ms. Module had complained about me by name in the middle of their classes. She apparently said that I "wasn't afraid of her" and that I was a "disrespectful student" for asking her a question before school. She really hurt my feelings and hurt the way my peers view me as a person.

She then did it again the next year, this time telling a class of sophomores about how I was "terrible" at presenting and "got a poor grade." This claim was false. I got a 92. I then noticed that she had set the online submission form that we use for handing in our assignments to a very unexpected setting. It automatically forwarded every document that we submitted to a woman in Arkansas named Jodi. For the record, my school is in New York. I'm certain that she was secretly outsourcing the marking (which is her job) to some random person in another state.

I asked her about why she was doing this and she told me to tell nobody. I asked my friend if he had seen it and she overheard me. She threatened to send me to a week of detention if I told anyone else. She was very obviously violating a whole slew of laws and I had caught her red-handed. The next week, I took my midterm and received a failing grade.

She gave me a 63%, which was the lowest out of all sixty students in her class. I've never gotten less than a 94 on any midterms so I know that she gave me a bad grade on purpose. I asked to see my test because I wanted to get a second opinion and prove that she had misjudged the quality of my work. She claimed that she always throws the tests out after grading them.

And she expects me to believe that. She is so corrupt it is not even funny. But she’s the teacher and I’m the student, so I feel completely powerless and I don’t see what I can do to defend myself against her wrath. Do I reveal her secret? Get revenge? Needless to say, this situation is causing me a ton of stress and drama these days.

50. Getting Schooled

This happened last year, but it still weighs heavily on my mind pretty often. Some group of jerks at my school created a horrible social media account to torment a bunch of kids from my classes. They got busted for it eventually, and a couple of people got into big trouble over it. The ringleader either left the school or was expelled, but needless to say he didn’t come back to school after that.

Nevertheless, the incident tarnished the reputation of our entire class. Now, this year, there’s some new drama going down in the freshman class, also involving social media. This time, it was an account posting memes about teachers at the school, and a lot of people were in on it. It was discovered eventually, and mostly turned out fine.

But our Humanities teacher was absolutely horrified and offended by the whole thing. He was very hurt that students who he devotes so much time to educating would go and make fun of him online behind his back. As a result, he is not writing any college recommendations for any of the current freshmen once they become seniors.

He pretty much openly hates their entire class now. I’ve had him, and he’s one of the harder teachers at the school. So my heart goes out to their GPAs. They probably should have thought twice and realized who they were messing with. Needless to say, watching this whole thing play out with my peers has been the most interesting bit of drama in my life as of late.
