You guys I can't believe people make fun of you guys. That is so terrible. i don't understand how it is possible since I can't really remember times where I was tortured so much like the rest of you. just do what elizabeth said, stay positive and don't let them bring you down.

When people make fun of you, do they call you names? Sometimes they either run away from me or they call me a monster.

Re:hates being laughed at/made fun of :(



Hi guys:
college is a blast. i live in the dorms and have the best room mate ever who is after just two weeks becoming one of my best friends. plus, in college there are huge programs for students with disabilities where you can meet so many people, two of my other best friends here are in wheelchairs, another is blind, and still others are not disabled. look forward to the future and stay happy in the present.


Re:hates being laughed at/made fun of :(



From all that exciting stuff Mimi has said about college I want to get out of high school and go.


Re:hates being laughed at/made fun of :(



Me to.


Re:hates being laughed at/made fun of :(



I heard that college is really fun.


Re:hates being laughed at/made fun of :(



I bet.


Re:hates being laughed at/made fun of :(



I can't wait until I go to college.


Re:hates being laughed at/made fun of :(



Cool. I'm glad.


Re:hates being laughed at/made fun of :(



In high school, I sometimes got made fun of by the other kids. But now, I am a Freshman in college, and no one makes fun of me. Matter of fact, I have more friends now that I am in college. You don't have your cloques or anything like that. You can talk to whomever you want.


Re:hates being laughed at/made fun of :(



Allways.


Re:hates being laughed at/made fun of :(



Haha thanks elizabeth.


Re:hates being laughed at/made fun of :(



Go Mimi! You really should stay pawsitive. You've got better things to think about.


Re:hates being laughed at/made fun of :(



Jillian i agree with Elizabeth. you are one of the most positive perky people on here with your smiley faces and all. don't let people bring you down because after high school odds are you'll never see those kids again. Just think about yourself and how you should do whatever it takes to succeed and get your education.


Re:hates being laughed at/made fun of :(



Hi Jillian, it's Elizabeth. I've been made fun of before. I think you shouldn't give a care about what other people think. That's the stuf that makes you special, just the way you are.


Re:hates being laughed at/made fun of :(



I get made fun of every day. If you just tell them off they will leave you alone. Either tell them off, or ignore them. If you let them see that it bothers you, they'll keep doing it. I learned that the hard way.
