Song is old like me.

Tbh I think you panicking far too much and when you look at this thread in years to come you'll think "what the hell was I doing back then" just chill out and enjoy it, if your getting bullied (not read all the thread) just make sure you get one of them on their own and give then such a pummelling they'll tell their mates and then that's it end of. If your a bright kid make the most of it when your rolling round in a porsche with a hot girl and a massive house who's the idiot then? Lol

Well. I don't really run away from them because they would just keep doing it. I got it to stop by giving him the hardest 12 birthday punches of his life. His arm is now purple! I guess 6 years of karate did come to use. XD If I wanted to outrun them, I sure could. XD 1 mile in 4:16 minutes was my last week's time. He's just jealous when I talk to the girls, then he goes around cracking his knuckles. He's lucky I don't have short-temper. I guess I just didn't want to leave my friends. In these past couple months, I learned it's ok to cry. I thank you guys for convincing me not to bomb
the test. I'll just have to see what happens in Jr. High. :/

The bullies ended up bald and generally pretty pitiful from my school days, the nerds and cool people all managed to be quiet successful. I'd say this was about a 90% ratio for both groups actually out of say 500 students. A few of the cool jocks that never beat on other kids ended up pretty well off also.
Those high school reunions really were insightful
I word about bullies: they tend to be larger than you, but....you have a distinct advantage, they also tend to be slow and get winded easily, so you can typically out run them.
I took full advantage of this growing up, taunting them. Even if you cannot out run them straight, you can weave and it's much harder for them to change direction. Small little bully "lieutenants"? Give them a beat down, they might be able to keep up with you, but they are no match.
As the smallest and youngest of 6 kids, I learned to run. I rather enjoyed it. It's like tag, except they really tag you if you are caught, so you play the game a bit more, well, seriously, but I laughed all the way. Nothing felt so good as to watch 2-3 big lard bullies sucking wind and getting stomach cramps. You know that laugh woody woodpecker uses in the cartoon? Yes, I'd use that to taunt them. Very effective at pushing them beyond their limits. Worked on older brothers and sisters also.
It'll also get you in shape pretty good.
I had a Boy's Club 1/2 a block from my house. So I boxed, wrestled, martial arts, basketball etc after school every day. I likely could have pummeled the bullies, but never did. Do I regret that today? No, not at all, well...... one or two guys sure deserved it, but I'm okay with that too.
Also, listen to other family members that are older other than your parents, it was pretty helpful for me to get different views that were not my folks(I would not have listened to them! Nag nag naggy naggy nag). I think I'd prefer a beating than "the nag".
Parents are a little crazy and it's very tough for them to realize how fast you grow up and adjust, they are still thinking you are like 7 years old or something. You are actually very independent, so give them a break. They have been use to making the decisions for you for 10+ years. It's a hard habit for them to break. They sound like very good parents. I was totally into aquariums when I was your age myself.

High school is only a few years of life. So many kids place their whole self worth on high school and it's sad, because they kill themselves over it. 99% of your "best-friends-for-ever" in high school won't be. A lot of the cool kids, girls who won't give you time of day, bullies, will grow up to be losers.
As for your parents, they are only trying to help. I would have died for parents that cared and weren't self-absorbed partying narcissists. I could take off for days at the age of 12 and they didn't notice. Both made decent money, but were too reckless with it to help with me school and instead I had to go $40,000 in debt in student loans because they wanted to party all the time.
There's worse out there kid.

Bullies can be a pain in the ass, At some point you may have to assert yourself.
A couple tips,, Never throw an arm punch when you can put your shoulder and hip's into it, Make the punch count.
Hit em in the throat,kick em in the groin,and then put your shoulder ,hip's,into best Sunday punch.
Few bullies will return for second's.
Been in more fight's than i've had birthday's ,(was skinny,little).
Even the big fella's aren't likely to pester you, if they think there's a chance they could receive injury,embarassment.

You sound like a pretty smart kid and you have a good head on your shoulders. I've been interested in your replies as your level of maturity shows through. I think you and your parents should be proud.
Stick it out man. I think you have a bright future ahead of you.
I believe we're all given special gifts. The ones that choose to embrace whatever they excel in usually find their way to success.
There are bullies in every school. There are also guys that don't like bullies. I set my high schools bench press record as a freshman. None of my friends ever had problems with bullies.

I guess I'll listen to what my parents say,
at least I have a week away from them.
Going to camp for 1 week for a field trip!
Sucks that it just stopped snowing.

|rainbuilder||Here's one word to describe middle school: yuck. It's a really awkward phase and generally I didn't like it. No one seems to understand anything of what's going on and there is so much pointless bullying and everyone seems to think that they know everything. Just try to think about what's going on and don't freak out about anything and don't let stuff get to your head. This comes from someone who was in it just 2 and 3 years ago. You have SO MUCH time to think about your future, and really the most you can do right now is get good grades and try to plan and learn about how you can succeed in high school in the future so that you can get into the college that you want. I know for a fact that my direction and wants for my future have changed since then. Also, your parents cannot decide for you in the future when you move away and go to college. I don't really have experience in that part because my parents have always told me to be what I want to be. Reading is fun, but that does seem a little overboard. Listen to your parents though, because really all they're trying to do is get you to become successful.|

|aroo||With a really strong science background you can go into patent law if you decide you still want to be a lawyer. A good grasp of engineering, chemistry, and biology wouldn't hurt if you want to do something professional with aquariums too. Someone has to design all the stuff for sale in the fish store, after all.|
