She slips in after class, just to be away from them, waiting till the sound of shouting and laughter has subsided, till it's safe to walk home alone
School occupies a strange place in my mind. It wasn't so long ago, but when I look back it seems so blurry. I remember being the weird kid, the awkward girl, who would run around with the boys. I was bullied a lot, sometimes it hurt, but mostly it didn't. I relised people would always judge, and knew it's you who has to be happy with yourself, you shouldn't change to please them; I noticed the things people would tease me about were the things they were insecure about in themselves. The most valuable lessons I learned weren't in the classroom. I got very comfortable with my own company

Schools such a strange place, and this girls having a hard time of it... I can certainly relate to feeling trapped there sometimes, for many reasons...

Edit: Wow, thanks so much for the response on this one guys
I've enjoyed reading about your experiences, all those having a hard time- It will get better! School is temporary. Use the time to better yourself. While I do read all comments it is a tall order replying to hundreds, so I'm sorry if you don't get a personal response from me, but please do know myself and others support you
