My Experience At School

I know this is a bit of a random post for a beauty blog but one of the reasons I moved my blog over to this format was so that I could create kind of a ‘hub’ for all of my online-ness (yes ok.. not a word).  Anywho, since my ‘Wine + Me = This’ I had some great feedback on camera facing vlogs and I am going to dabble with ‘my thoughts on life’ type vlogs and this is the first. This was actually requested a lot over on my beauty channel so it seemed like a good place to start.. if you have any topic suggestions please leave a comment as although I have lots of ideas they will inevitable run our at some point and I may as well chat about something you want to hear!

    I regret staying on at my school for A-Levels because the people turned me into an aggressive wreck! I’m so glad to have finally left now, and I know the feeling of being that one who’ve been picked on by a group of girls. I’ve had the lesbian comments too, how lovely are teenage girls?! x

      How strange.. there I was thinking I was the only gay one in the village lol. Worst of all it wasn’t just girls.. it became like EVERYONE! not nice and it totally ruined the memory of school for me. I left in the end ’cause a girl that was supposed to be my friend said something.. I forget what but I was like.. that’s it.. I don’t have to be here anymore. I went home and my Dad told me I had a week to find a job or I was going back to school and I had one in 3 lol… that’s the motivation they gave me!

    Your school life sounds similar to mine. I was always picked on, although I imagine it was down to me being completely silent as I was shy. I had the lesbian thing too but that was my fault because I’d made a private joke to a friend who decided to stab me in the back. The worst thing was this went from year 7 right through to 11 with people I’ve never seen and people older who should know better making comments.

      I don’t THINK I ever joked about anything but then again you never know what can be taken the wrong way and later used against you. People are just not nice a lot of the time and I have a very small circle of friends as an adult I think because after leaving school I just decided to say what was on my mind and not everybody likes that!

    This sounds so similar to me! I left school in 1998 and was so glad that day came.
    I had various bullying periods throughout my school life from when I was under 10, by boys as well as girls which may sound surprising. I was picked on and laughed at for the silliest things but they really got me down. I would be called anorexic because I was slim, gorilla or monkey or whatever because it was before I started shaving (I hadn’t even started ‘big’ school!) and other stuff which really got to me because of my looks.
    Unfortunately I was assaulted when I was 16 which hit the final nail in the coffin really, and so I didn’t get to do college because of all that. Like you, I did enjoy school in between the horrible times – I loved English and Art lessons and I had my small group of friends. I’ve always been quite shy but lively with my friends and some people, I guess, take liberties and find your weaknesses to look better.

    I think I’m rambling, lol.

      it happens when you’re ‘on one’ haha. Yeah school experience differs person to person depending on the people you’re pushed in with, it’s not about intelligence so much as the balls you have to stand up for yourself and I really didn’t have any til I was in my twenties. If I was me now then school would have been a very different place for me

    I totally relate to this video. I went to a very small Primary School so thankfully I wasn’t bullied for long there because once I became one of the older kids or whatever it kind of stopped but as soon as I went to high school it happened again and much worse. I do know why I was bullied though. I’m not conventionally attractive. Apparently I’m “striking”. In other words I stick out like a sore thumb and I was an easy target. As I got older I was also taunted about my sexuality. I came out as bi to my friends at school when I was around 16, I heavily lean towards the lesbian side but I don’t “look” gay, whatever gay looks like, anyway a friend outed me in the middle of a corridor once by accident and it all got a bit out of hand especially as even now nearly 6 or 7 years later I’m still not out to most of my family. This led to a lot of stress and anxiety especially as my brother and cousins were at the same school.
    So basically what I was trying to say is that school is a really bad memory for many people but you really need to put it in a box, or even better a basket on the door step where all the negativity can blow away. Those ignorant people ruined a large junk of your childhood, don’t let them ruin your present and future.
    I was lucky in that I went to university, I had my fresh start and while I still have issues that were no doubt made worse by my school days uni was a complete turnaround for me. I’m popular, have lots of open-minded and likeminded friends and in the most part I’m happy.
