London-based writer and Twitter user Sarah Woolley posted a tweet asking people to share the dweebeist thing they ever did at school. Surprisingly, more than 500 people decided to tell their secrets to the Twitterverse. Don't these people know that nothing on the internet is anonymous?
To get the ball rolling, Woolley shared a few of her own.

I'm thinking @MyBlackHalo still secretly thinks this was cool.
Books are cool! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, Rachel!
