I think I got picked on every single year til high school..I was either being called bird legs(I remember that the most because I think that lasted
almost two years..) or was having my name made fun of and God forbid when I got boobs in the 5th grade and had to be embarrassed about it because no
one would stop staring at me.. I really just wanted to hide that year and never go to school again..
But school back then was always rough - one year in the 7th grade I had a bully follow me around and punch me periodically for fun. My sister had to
threaten to beat her up in order to get that to stop (told her if she wanted to pick on someone then she should pick on someone her own size, to wit,
my sister was available if she thought she might like to.. lol) which was just as embarrassing as being picked on I think, Its not like the entire
school didn't witness that.
In high school my nickname was "the brain" but by then it was more in love and acceptance since I was also one of the cool kids by then - not sure
how I made that crowd but it happened at some point... I guess every cool kid crowd needs at least one "brain"
But, we did get tougher as a result of all that, and entered into adulthood with only a few scars, and much more compassion toward other people
usually as a result - so it wasn't too bad for us in the end.
