Doing my GP 5k tonight.
Nik, how's the back?
I loved seeing all the pictures, Jo! What a party!
Bullying of the sort DD experiences: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20120924/METRO/209240341
This is getting a lot of play on facebook today as a "wow, look at this heartwarming story."
I'm struggling to see the positive in this. I've been experiencing literal flashbacks to my own experiences in middle school these last few weeks. As in, I'm not simply reminded of memories, but I'm actually reliving them, confusing past and present. It's scary. This girl is now named in the national news as unattractive and unpopular. That will stick. She's portrayed in the story as pretty clueless, slow to catch onto the prank. Those perpetrating the prank appear to be getting away with it ("we'll look into it" is something I've heard before). The boy who is refusing to be associated with her is now highlighting that she is not the type a popular kid should be associated with, and it is taken as ok that he's doing this.
Please convince me I'm wrong.
