  • May 2 2012: The most painful lesson I would learn? hmm... I guess its "Do what you gotta do and shrug off the headache". Growing up I was always the child that got bullied because my english wasn't well (foreign child, foreign country), because I was semi fat, etc... From say... kindergarden till the fifth grade (thats right, all of grade school). I always got tortured, picked on, lunch being stolen... toys taken away etc. It got to the point where the bullies collaboratively ganged up on me via telling the teacher that I was the problem and not them! (they followed me through the classes no matter what I did, telling the principal etc... just wasnt happening... always got in trouble). Then when I finally graduated... 9/11 happened and me being muslim... well lets just say that didn't make me feel any better. Being completely socially inept, pretty much no friends, not even a home to talk to all I could do to get me out of the rediculous missery was study. Study hard, and get A's. I wasn't looking for applause, or some form of pat on the back, but I needed some sort of outlet. And to be honest it paid off, I went to an amazing high school, had the time of my life, in college right now studying interpersonal psychology... Having a blast. Over all, if you get what you need to get done, there eventually is a finish line and a celebration. Sure life sucks... But life can also be amazing, you just gotta deal with what you gotta deal with, and keep on trucking.
    P.S. : all those bullies are now in jail for serious crimes. That made me laugh so much when I started talking to some old friends about them... On top of the freaking world.
