School

Preschool – Grade school

Colegio San Agustin Binan

 

Good

 I made friends. I was “one of the boys”. We used to go in the field to play with the goal post and the big concrete pipes. We would always hang on the goal post until it flips over and one of us would get in the concrete pipe and someone would roll it until the person inside gets dizzy. It was fun.

 

Bad

I was bullied. They would hit me or throw books at me, stab my hand with their pen or pencil, call me names, insult my family, throw my things and kick my bag. There was one time when I was accused of cheating on the test (WHICH I DIDN’T) I tried to defend myself, I told the them the truth. The teacher kept on asking me questions but they didn’t believe me, they kept on making excuses that if I didn’t really cheat I wouldn’t do those. What’s the point of asking if you won’t listen and believe me? When I got home, my family shouted at me, they won’t believe me, they made me feel worse. After that, whenever I entered the classroom the people would glare at me and the classroom would get quiet or they would insult me and laugh at me.

 

Effect

I started hating everyone. I hated myself. I didn’t trust anyone. I became afraid of talking to people. I started to think that whenever people are nice to me, they need something from me. I tried changing how I speak and move to “fit in”, it was hard at first, it didn’t feel right but I got used to it and it became natural. It worked.

Good

I started fighting for myself. I made new friends and became more talkative. I was comfortable around them. My 4th year adviser was kind and loving but strict. He was like a father, whenever someone would get accused of something he didn’t do, he would know the situation first and defend us.

 

Bad

I was still bullied but it wasn’t as bad as before. It stopped when I was in 3rd year.

 

Effect

I didn’t hate teachers that much anymore. I started talking to people but I’m still afraid of talking in front, talking to people I don’t know or having the attention on me but not as much as before, I improved.
