Well, we have some kind of replacement for Halloween, we call it "maškare" It's in february, but we don't go trick or treating, we just dress into something, this year I am so going to be in a costume that day in school When I was younger people even sometimes went trick or treating but today most of the children just stay on facebook
Whoa! Knifes are awesome >:3 Well look it on the bright side, you didn't die But that sure had to be fun!
Oh cool! Sounds a little like masquerades! I noticed a lot of people on Tumblr all Halloween and most of my friends are American, seems a lot of people would rather not go out as often these days. The weather here is so much nicer this time of year, I love to spend it out in the neighborhood
Hahah oh I'm more than fine, didn't get any deep cuts lol! It was very fun, thank you!
Yes! Haha, even though i'm not American myself, most of my "internet friends" are I love listening experience from others You guys have ThanksGiving day, your Valentine's day seems much more serious than here It's true Croatians are kind of Americans since we are Europeans after all, but as we are the same we are also different aswell I example have no idea why in America bullying is a serious problem, here in our highschool you can hang out with people, if you don't you don't have to, no one will insult you Ofc there are some high schools wich are "violent" and such but not like in America
Hahahah I once was making a plane model with a knife, then i've cut myself, so I just kinda said : "NEVER AGAIN XD"
Thanksgiving is fun! Valentine's Day I tend to prefer to show love and appreciation for all my friends and family instead of romance Ah I wish bullying wasn't such a huge problem here, I was molested and assaulted in middle and high school and several of my friends and classmates attempted suicide, one jumped off a balcony at school :\ It's great that it's not a problem over there, hopefully someday it won't be a problem here either!
Oh no hahah, building models looks really fun, I built some dinosaur ones as a kid XD
Haha That's awesome! Here we just send cards or give a present if we have a gf or bf
Oh mai god really? What were they doing to you? Yeah it's not the first time I heard someone attempted suicide cause of bullying, one of my friend who has a friend moved to America, and she was so much molested and bullied by others, they were telling her to return to the crappy land where she came from, and after several months she killed herself. :/ I think it'll be a much less problem for several years, I have faith in the generations wich are coming after us Yeah it's really not a big problem here but I did saw 2 or 3 times a case of that :I I didn't really ever got molested for real, if I did get insulted them it was on insult-based humor or some jokes friends would sometimes tell
Well actually I wanted to try out this student exchange thing with my friend from class and that we try to go to school in America for 1 year or half a year, but being bullied was our fear. It's not like i'm some sort of geek, actually few people told i'm cool (by that I mean how I dress up and sometimes act), but still, you never know I can't get much use of my hoodies, jeans or even some metalhead stuff when people will insult cause i'm from Croatia With english adleast I wouldn't have a problem cause I kinda speak it very fluent
Yay awesome! I have decided not to build anymore models but I sometimes get those "hard paper" ones wich you just set up without use of glue, it's not easy cause there is alot of pieces but it saves me from the mess I can make
That's what you're supposed to do for Valentine's Day here, but I feel like so many people feel unloved and left out that way - I love all my friends, no reason to treat only one of them like they're special!
I've been sexually molested, beaten, had food dumped on me, and was overall targeted for physical and emotional abuse because I moved from another state and wasn't "pretty" to a lot of people (didn't wear much makeup, didn't wear tight clothes or have a large chest, I changed those things to try to make it stop though). Eventually I became afraid to keep going to school since nobody, not even the person I was dating at the time, would stand up for me, and standing up for myself didn't work so well when there were lots of people hurting me at once. I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend's buddy, nobody should have to endure that...I don't remember that much about my later years of high school anymore, I sort of blocked it out of my memory and I still feel uncomfortable when I have to drive past that school. If parents raise their kids better and teachers are actually allowed to break things up when a kid is being bullied, then there would be more chance that things will get better. And other kids have to learn to stand up for those being hurt, everyone should learn how to fight back in their defense.
Bullying can happen to anybody, and exchange students I've seen have it really hard sometimes. It helps knowing English in some places! I went to school at a place where more than half of the school spoke Spanish and if you were white, you were a subject of bullying a lot, so I suppose it depends where you go!
The paper ones look really neat, I've seen some awesome paper crafts on deviantART, I'd love to see yours lol!
