    Default Difference between myself and all by myself

    1) I went to school myself. 2) I went to school by myself.

    What is the difference in meaning between the above 2 sentences? Please advise.

    Please use capital letters and punctuation marks correctly. We like teachers to set a good example in this forum. Thank you.
