I was the same way in school, wish Iwas smart now as I was then. And exactly the same thing happened to me, i had rocks thrown at me, a whole gang of girls against me, i did nothing to desrve 5 or 6 girls trying to beat me up. One shoved me up against a brick wall which drew blood on my face, but in desperation, I just started laughing about
it, i couldnt out run them, i wasnt gonna let them see me cry. So I laughed, this is after they had destroyed my notebooks. Looking back i think they were jealous maybe?
I dont recall telling an authority figure, which i should have.
But there was a girl who had witnesses it and she was bigger and taller than even the girls tormenting me. She came over and they ran like crazy, she was very tall and stocky, you wouldnt want her on your bad side. she said dont worry, they wont mess you any more, and she walked me home. talk about angels out of no where!! They never did mess with me again.
I agree with all the others embrace your smartness, and dont stoop yourslef down to their level. you are better than that....
