Brett Kavanaugh

Amazing Classmates Quotes

As seventh graders, my classmates and I would make rockets to see what made them fly and models of remote-controlled motor boats because Palanpur had heavy rainfall. Pranav Mistry

At school I pretended I had a normal life, but I felt lonely all the time and different from everyone else.

As a kid growing up, I didn’t want to tell any of my classmates I did figure-skating because I knew they’d be like, ‘Oh, you’re a skater, you’re gay, blah blah blah.’ So I kept it to myself.

My classmates could see I was not similar. So they made me their scapegoat. They hit me or locked me in the toilets. During the break, I would take refuge in the chapel, or I would arrange to stay alone in the classroom. Yves Saint Laurent

In the early days, I loved Facebook. I loved being able to keep tabs on hundreds of college classmates all at once, of being able to tag all my dorm mates in the photos we took on our garbage 7 megapixel cameras, of creeping on crushes, of keeping up with every person I met at a party or in a classroom without doing very much work. Sarah Jeong

When you’re a writer, you hear your internal critic, and that’s really hard to get over. And then sometimes you hear critiques from classmates and stuff.

I was mostly bullied by my classmates. People would come up to me and say, ‘You’re so dark.’ I’d always fight back by calling out one of their insecurities, like, ‘Well, you have a big nose.’ Today, I’d tell them that I really love them. I’d thank them because they made me realize how unique I am. Khoudia Diop
