Trapped by School by DestinyBlue Trapped by School by DestinyBlue
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 :)
My art teacher told me "Cartoons are not art" so I drew in my spare time and let myself indulge in a world all my own.

This is a two parter drawing.. please expect the next installment soon :) It'll be wallpaper size as well, feel free to use this as your school wallpaper ;) heh

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...
~How is/was it for you?

Edit: Wow, thanks so much for the response on this one guys :heart: 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 :)

I know how you feel, I went through the same thing in school, I was socially awkward and for alot of people it in a way gave them something to feed off of, I had girls steal my jackets and rip them up, $400 leather jackets I mind you, I was spit on, beat up, pushed, and my male friends were my salvage, and eventually I stood up for them and myself, (I got beat up) but people started to leave me alone, and every year, up until High School no one picked on me, I became the voice in my school for all those who were bullied, and drawing became an outlet for me as well, oh yes and video games. But you can take alot from the past to create a better future. I love this image. It reflects my childhood alot.

This picture is truly beautfiul! I can actaully relate to this picture because i am the same i am the odd one out in my class. I am a gamer girl and i get bullied a lot because i like a lot of different things 
At break i usually sit alone and try to stay away from bullies but they always come for me... my friends are always the ones protecting me and getting hurt because of me because i can't stand up for myself
