Hey. Bolt isn’t my real name, but I guess I’ve gotten attached to it.
I’m not revealing my age or anything, I just want people to read this, I guess.
I don’t want to make other people feel jealous, but in my school, there are no bullies. And the ones that are usually get owned by the teachers, so they’re not that big of a deal.
I think I’ve shown signs of being a tomboy since I was three. I had a crazy obsession with dinosaurs. And not the toys that kids play with or those dinosaur books that teach you shapes. I meant actual dinosaurs.
One day, our teacher told us to bring books to nursery class. The next day, I brought a dinosaur encyclopedia containing things like a dinosaur’s height, weight, where it was found, etc. I don’t really remember how my classmates reacted, though.
When I got to second grade, some girls would start slapping me in the face every time I would approach them asking them if they wanted to play with me. At the time my dinosaur obsession was beginning to fade away, and I began taking interest in My Little Pony.
Fifth grade. People wouldn’t really tease me or anything, but they would mind me less and think I was weird in a sort of humorous way. I knew they didn’t mean any harm, but I still felt isolated. I spent more time with the boys discussing superhero movies and drawing. I still have female friends who treat me like a normal person. But they still like dresses and usually discuss, well, girly things.
When it’s not a uniform day, I wear jeans and a simple T-shirt, usually one with a superhero picture on it. All the rest of the girls would wear really, REALLY short shorts (the teacher scolded them once for that) and pink tops.
Also, I’m really good at turning down bullies. Verbally and physically.
Well, that’s all I want to say. I know I don’t encounter as much problems as the other people here, but I want to let them know that I feel them.
