Hello ladies and gentlesteves and welcome to another blog of mine. Today I want to talk about a subject that bothers me a lot. School. Now, this blog will most likely be a big block of text, but I'd appreciate if you took the time to read it.
For me, school is just a thing I go to all day to learn. I do not enjoy school at all because of it's unfairness. I have only a few close friends in real life, and I love those friends because they're always there for me and give me happiness.
You see, in my school, people who play minecraft and computer games are treated worse than "normal people", especially girls. With boys, they're "supposed" to play Skyrim, Call of Duty and other shooting-y games. With girls, you're supposed to paint your face until you look fake and plastic and spend your life taking photos of yourself doing duckfaces and posting it on facebook with a pointless song lyric and some Xs. I'm not like that. I'm a girl who wears close to no makeup and plays minecraft and pokemon. I try to keep it a secret but it's not. People know and they call me a nerd and a geek. Today I was laughed at in technology because I had to tell people I had a Nokia (;-;) for research. I personally hate my phone and only bought it because when I got it I was a n00b and thought it was "cool". I'm sure you'll agree, this is not fair. A lot of other stuff happens that I'd rather not talk about here.
Bullying is one of the leading causes of deaths in young people under 14, and over 50% of kids in schools see bullying happen. Thousands of teenagers have suicidal thoughts as a result of bullying. I'm not proud to admit it, but I have considered suicide before. The reason I didn't is because of my amazing friends. To anyone who is considering suicide: don't do it. Someone in this world loves you and cares about you.
I try to be as happy as I can be all the time. I try to be kind to everyone and not let stuff get to me. But sometimes inside I feel like crying. My self esteem is so low now, I'm so anxious now, always worrying about weather I look okay, weather my stuff is stupid, all sorts of silly things nobody cares about. I don't want this to happen to anyone I know because I know how horrible it feels, so please, if you see someone being bullied or you're being bullied yourself, tell someone. Someone loves you, someone will be there for you.

One friend can save a life.

Thank you for reading.

if anyone is reading this now:

firstly, i wanna say that this blog post is very flawed. something that really irritates me about it is the fact that i put down the girls who wear makeup and the boys who play skyrim and cod. you wear lots of makeup? great !! you look amazing! keep going !! you play skyrim and cod? awsome! you do you hun!! you take loads of selfies! dude same!! i encourage it, self love is fab!! you play minecraft and pokemon? thats really cool!!
whatever you enjoy doing, do it! whatever you enjoy (so long as it doesnt harm others) keep going! do things for you cause it's your life!

secondly, i am aware these statistics may be incorrect, but i was thirteen and all i wanted to do was help someone, at least one person. i was (and still am!) overwhelmed with the response this got. almost 200 diamonds and over 300 comments - that's incredible! thank you all so much if you supported this.

if you're having suicidal or self destructive thoughts or actions, please please get help. i promise you it gets better and i know people say that a lot and it's hard to believe but it's true. i'm finally learning to love myself and i'm in a much better place now than i was at points. there are always gonna be bad days but life is so so worth living and amazing things will happen. if you need to talk i can't promise i'll always be here as i no longer use this site anymore but i do check up on it so feel free to send me a message. i'm gonna leave some links here so if you're feeling suicidal or like you want to hurt yourself please please please get help i urge you.

i'm so so sorry. i know you must have gone through a lot but i hope you are free of the bullies - if not please don't let them get to you. i know it's easy to say "don't let them get to you" "just ignore them" but i promise you it does get better. i heard that a lot of times and it's right, it honestly does get better. i hope you held on because it is so worth it

This is SO sad. I have a group of friends at school and we all play hardcore minecraft and we run a server that gets a good flow of donation money. Everyone is always making fun of us for playing minecraft, and when they hear that we run a server and make money off of it, they laugh saying that is the nerdiest thing they have every heard.

CORRECT on both points. And I'm a guy.

To be honest, I'm a proud nerd. I'm pimply, skinny, and have less of a life than "normal" kids (I hate social gatherings, usually), but I'm content.
I think there were some girls in my class that, if I tried to be "kewll", I could've gone out with. 'Scru dat", I said. I was myself. The girls learned to accept my spazzy, nerd-tastic behavior. I will never have a chance at a relationship with them again, but at least they know the real me.

1. Bullying is not a direct cause of death, it is only bullying synergized with preexisting mental instability.

2. How is school unfair just because you are bullied? It is fair for them to have opinions of you just as you have generalized and made opinions of your peers in this blog. It might even be more unfair of you to post this public blog with your derogatory opinions of them online.

3. Suicide-related bullying is not a leading cause of death, it is not even a significant cause of death, only a few teens commit suicide each year. Rather, why not blog against drunk driving?

4. I'm going to go way out on a limb here and say you are in middle school, and you have not passed the barrier when you say to other's opinions, "Lol fuck you I don't even know you."

5. As for your peers who duckface and COD all day, I hope you realize that they are the douchebags who are "popular" but no one likes them anyway. You'll learn that the Calculus kid or the Harvard prospect will be much more appreciated in high school and beyond.

i apologise if some of my statistics were incorrect, i was 13 when i wrote this and my research skills were... not great. i only wanted to help people. thank you for the comment, though, i appreciate it. hope you are doing okay.


also, i think a blog against drunk driving would be an excellent topic. sadly i do not enjoy writing as much anymore, but i think it is an important issue.

You sir need to shut the fuck up. I have a girlfriend who is suicidal at times. I do everything I can for her. She is not mentally unstable at all and gets great grades and such. She gets bullied at school and comes home to me crying lots of time for being called a whore or a slut. It's absolute bullshit. I love her so much and I think your opinion is that of an asshole.

Have a nice day.

I do not have an opinion in my comment except for #5. Great grades do not mean mental stability, and I would not assume she is mentally sane just because you think so (although you would judge this better than I do). Also, if she is called a whore and a slut, there should be a reason. If there is no reason, then she is too subjective about this and needs to realize her peers have no empirical evidence and are bound to fail in life. Basically, you have no support for your argument, and you used an opinion to attack fact.

PS: You are way too subjective here as well, since you are biased towards a person you love. As a hyperbole, I would like to remind you that Hitler's mistresses loved him very much. You should keep in mind that most things are relative.

Okay, I'm really annoyed by this comment. It's just rude, if you don't like the blog, then don't read it. Okay? Just, don't go commenting on peoples stuff unless there is something major about it that's wrong, she was just trying to get the point through. And try to be nice about how you correct people, I'm sorry but what does it matter if you're in Middle School? I've known a lot of people in highschool and even goddamn college that still listen to what others say, because they want input. I'm very sorry you don't understand, but please, please, just don't be going around commenting about random shit. But actually, listen to 5. "5. As for your peers who duckface and COD all day, I hope you realize
that they are the douchebags who are "popular" but no one likes them
anyway. You'll learn that the Calculus kid or the Harvard prospect will

1. I was very polite, more so than both you and the blogger. I retained an impartial tone while you insulted me and my understanding (despite you not showing much insight while I supported my insight) and the blogger insulted people who she may have a personal grudge against (it would still be rude to them even if they were legitimately cruel).

2. I corrected major errors in the blog, and remained on topic while you attacked my personal credibility and performed ad hominem fallacy. So please, "just don't be going around commenting on random shit."

3. The people you talk about, may go to high school or college, but they sure are in middle school. My reference to middle school was synecdoche of immaturity.

Okay, I understand where you're coming from, I'm sorry if I seemed rude, but I was just giving my opinion next time you comment on a blog, you may want to say that you aren't meaning to be rude (unless you are, i dont really know.).

But she may also have issues with self harm, I know I do sometimes, so she may just be posting a blog about this to vent. That's the point that I was coming from, but also, on my part that was a huge assumption. I'm very sorry if I came across rude.
