Yeah, Facebook kinda ruined my first year in high school.I have been homeschooled most of my life. I loved it, but wanted to get out, experience the real world. Well, I started at a public school, and quickly made some friends. They were popular skaters, and I was a farm kid in my flannel shirts. Well, I thought we were good friends. One day, I was going to sit with them at lunch, like always. There was a kid in my seat though. I didn't really get it. I am like ok, and walk away and have to find another seat, and when I did, this kid moved. It was awkward. Kinda ruined my day. Well, I went home, and got on my facebook. I looked up the leader of this little group I was hanging with (not a gang, but a group of kids, and the kid who thought he was the best was what I called the leader.) Well, I look up his facebook and find something like this.
D-Would someone sit at our table tomorrow? Ricky is weird, and a freak.
A- Yeah, but who is Ricky?
J-The fat one?
A-Yeah he is weird
And it went on and on. Over 70 comments trashing me, and over 30 likes. It was great. I don't really cry , but I did when I read that. I thought they were my friends, and they ruined me. I quit school that Monday. This happened on Friday.
That along with my depression + anxiety kinda put me over the edge, and I was in a rut for weeks. I don't really know if facebook was good or bad for me in this situation lol
