Aha! Got your attention, did I? Today I’ll be presenting awards again and telling you another secret about myself.
So onward with the awards….
The following are awarded The Versatile Blog Award:
I like these ladies, too. Some are educators. Some are already published. Most have wonderful senses of humor. They even like animals.
There are rules. Nothing in life is free but I’m sure you knew that already.
Rule 1: Thank and direct other bloggers to the person who gave it to you.
Rule 2: Tell some secrets about yourself. Seven or ten. This one has me eye-brains crossing.
Rule 3: Award it to fifteen others.
Now for another secret about me. It will be secret number four and maybe more.
I absolutely hated high school. It was definitely not the best time of life. People lie when they tell you this.
For one, I was fat, shy, and insecure. The other reason, I was bullied. Kids saluted me through the halls by pushing their middle fingers against their noses and snorting. Yup. I said/wrote snorting like pigs. My nickname in high school was Miss Piggy.
To make matters worse, I attended a Southern Baptist high school. The kids didn’t seem to understand the Bible verse about loving thy neighbor as them- selves. The worst thing they ever did to me was take my uniform and shoes one day while in the gym shower. When I got out, I found them in the toilet. Several girls had peed on them and someone finished it off with a bowel movement. I sat in the locker room for three hours wrapped in a towel waiting for my mother to bring me a change of clothes. Poor mom had issues as well. But I won’t go there now.
I’m glad I never resorted to killing myself. Never thought of it. I always told myself that one day they’d be repaid some how. They have. One’s in jail for life. One’s a hooker. Several are addicted to drugs and have horrible lives. And, a lot of them know what it’s like to be FAT. Need I say more.
If I could tell a teen how to handle their oppressors, I would advise animal crackers, a gallon of your favorite ice cream, gummy bears, a pen, and a tablet (Journal, journal, journal). They were my best buds through high school until I learned how to work out and eat right (the sweets that is). And, have a mantra. Mine was “you’ll reap what you sow” and “this too shall pass.”
Also, laugh with the idiots. Take nothing seriously or personally. If anything, bullies see strength in someone they torment. Their more afraid of you than you are of them. They are more insecure with themselves than you could possibly know. That’s why they do what they do. Quite frankly, their pretty down right pathetic.
Everyone's life is precious. I find it sad that the kid who was bullied into suicide had something great to offer the world and we’ll never see his/her light shine.
Once at a conference, I heard a group of writers say, “Look who rules the world, NERDS and GEEKS.”
Okay. I’m done now with that fact. Onto the next award.
Before I go further handing this one out, I Googled the word. I found the Liebster Blog Award was created to bring recognition exposure to the small blogs who have less than 300 followers. The diddy said to hand it out to three but I know I’m going to give out more. Poohie on the rules.
I award the Liebster Blog Award to the following:
Congrats fellow bloggers!
That’s all for now folks!
Happy blogging, writing, and reading!
