From Homeschooler, to Public Schooler

The Adventures of being a "homeschooler" in a Public School.

As a teenager, you are given a “label”; something that sums up everyone’s judgments about you in a few words. No matter how popular a person gets, they will still have some bogus label that someone made up to tear them down. You wouldn’t believe some of the things I’ve been labeled by people I don’t even know, I’ve been called lesbian, goth, emo, nerd, hipster, I’ve even been called a slut. Whenever people try to stick me with things such as those, I just laugh. It’s like “Wow, you really don’t know anything about me.” Adults say children are mean, but they don’t understand how mean. Getting called gay by one person one time is not the worst thing in the world, but rumors like that spread like wildfire on a dry plain. I even had my boyfriend come up to me and ask me if it was true. Bullying isn’t something that someone can just outgrow, when you’ve been bullied once that pain spreads and consumes your heart and next thing you know, you’re spending lunch inside with teachers to escape the torment of your peers. I can’t say that I’ve ever been bullied to that extent, but I know that it does happen, it happens everyday and no one does anything to protest it!

I highly recommend watching this video, it’s so inspirational.
