Wow! A strong opening. Engaging, rife with sinister undertones and stark imagery - without having to say very much. We just get it, and in an emotional bothersome way. Excellent!

The word "until" should be "into."

She had a friend.

No matter how many times I choose to write about this subject in school, it did not get easier each time. Each time I had to open back up that weird chapter in my life known as middle school. Looking back I wish they had bullying programs like they do now in school. When I was in middle school you would tell a teacher or whomever that someone was bullying you and what was the typical answer? "Walk away"-every single time it was those two words. But in all reality you can't just "walk away" because they follow you. To your classes, lunch, even on breaks, sometimes even into the bathroom...Yes, my bullies were that vulgar. 1 comment


These bad times involved a group of girls whom made a hobby of turning each day until a nightmare. They would tell me false lies at first, bash on my hair, clothes and my natural curvy structure. Until one day for no reason their taunting turned into slaps, and treats. Saying they would hack into my email or spread even more rumors about me. I tried to ingore it, and just walk away until two things happened. 2 comments


There was this girl named Amanda and one day during choir she went out to go get some water and came bursting back in claiming she had checked her locker and her camera was missing. She claimed I had it. Which I didn't since I had just gotten my first camera for my birthday. She had a completly different make and model of camera. My words of reason with the office didn't go through and they ended up searching my locker in-front of onlookers during break. Very humilating, and guess what? No camera. The other girls in their group didn't give up on trying to tell the office that I had taken and it and I was clearly keeping it at my house.


When that all blew over the group of girls decided to take their bullying one step further. During break one day I was sitting out on the swings and they came running up to me, surrounding me, and the playground at the time had small pebbles with bigger pebbles pushed to the sides. They had the bigger pebbles in their hands. To which they used to throw at me, calling me fat and ugly. They kept it up until the bell rang. They ran off laughing, I went to the nurse so she could treat my welts. I went home early from school crying my eyes out. I could not understand why they would do such a thing to me. When I had done nothing to them. When confronting the office, this time instead of telling me to walk away finally punished the bullies who had been tormenting me all year. 1 comment


When I entered the 8th grade the bullying calmed down. It was during my 6th and 7th years that the bullying was out of control. I love school but when I was worrying about being bullied the thought of going to school nearly made me sick. Like I said earlier I wish they had better programs like they do now for bullying prevention back when I was in middle school, maybe then things could have been better quicker instead of having to go through the emotions of being bullied for 2 years. 1 comment


Sometime good came of all this, I guess I have my bullies to thank. It made me stronger, and learn who I could trust as a friend vs who was a fake friend. I was too trusting in middle school, I believed no one could hurt me and everyone had good in them. To which now I say, bullshit. Sometimes some people dont have enough good worth getting to know. I've come a long way, gone through so many friends but in the end its made me stronger.


So to my bullies, even though I hope Karma is a complete and utter bitch to you all. Thanks for helping me learn the lesson I needed about people like yourselves.
