“It was a weird school day, you know what I mean because it kind of like started off kind of normal. You have like English, Geometry, Social Studies and then suddenly you're like in 'Lord of The Flies' for 40 minutes you know you're hangin' from a rope. You have hardly any clothes on. Teachers are yellin' at you: ‘Where's your jock strap?’ You know and kids are throwin' dodge balls at you. You're tryin' to survive....Then it’s History, Science, Language. There's something off in the entire flow of that day.”
