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 foggy; so different from the life I experience now. I was bullied, a lot, at first it really hurt, but I learned to not let it get to me. I was the 'weird' girl, who drew anime. 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.
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
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
