Manic Monday #194

december 28 2009

Were you considered popular in high school? Why or why not?

Not during the first years, but when I joined the schoolpaper as a writer and editor, the studentorganization and became one of the board, something might have happened that I didn't realize.
I just tried to develop my talents, tried to have a refuge from home (I was abused), and tried to have fun.

I found my best friends and best enemies, and my first real relationship all there.

Because I was very insecure, I questioned my own accomplishments more than I valued them.

After 25 years, at the schoolreunion, others told me how popular I was.
Oh, I wish I'd known that. Life would have been far different and I certainly would have made other choices.

Well, at least I got the chance to be a bright star at the schoolreunion. See my first love again, experienced that someone didn't want to see me at all, and enjoyed the kindness and sincere friendship for the older alumnists, some which are and were very famous.
No matter was, I experienced that I am just te person I am, no matter how people think about me.

Did you have an enemy or bully when you were young?

I was bullied a lot when I was young.
I was shy, introvert. And I had glasses when I was 4.
I was a dedicated student with a very high IQ, and I used it to learn a lot and read a lot.
Because I was abused at home by my mother I had always to hide the marks of it, which was sensed by some boys in the group.

One apologized later for his behaviour.

If you could go on a road trip with any person (dead or alive) who would you go with and where would you go?

Well I would go to the horizon with one of my friends of high school time.
We both used to write poetry, but in different styles. We both were writers, but for different schoolpapers, and in the studentboard he was the opposition.

We became close friends during and after the schoolreunion and I can say that he knows me best.
We don't see each other often, and in fact we can't live together for a long time, but the feeling of home I feel when I'm with him I've never found with someone else.

So when we're old and have no one left in the world, I think we should team up.
We won't irritate each other as much, because our habits will have leveled out.
