    When I was in third grade,

    there was a girl who seemed depressed. She would rant on and on about how her life sucked, and how her mom hated her. I tried to be her friend. I thought it would cheer her up. When she broke her arm, I was the one delivering get-well-cards to her doorstep. Years later, she...

    Bullies Suck!

    From grade 3 all the way up to about grade 6, I was quietly bullied by my "peers." I still have no idea why they hated me so much. It could have been a lot of things: I was new to that school in the 3rd grade, I was a shy kid and didn't talk much, I was very smart...

    School, well that wasn't fun ever.

    Bullied, beaten up, attacked throughout my school life so much so my survival went up when I stopped going. No more beatings, no more pain - the local town was great - spent most of my days in the end on the beach or playing Pac Man and ninja turtles :-)

    Like how I used to be bullied

    because I was almost at the edge of being obese. But that changed when I wanted it to change anyway. So even if that memory did affect my outlook of myself, even now, I'm thankful that I didn't need to endure that kind of crap as soon as I had started high school.
