Has anyone ever had this problem? I am basically asking this to middle-high schoolers, but if you have your own story to share, please do!
Lately, when I go to school, people are always talking about me. They call me the "violin freak", "classical music retard", and, worst of all, "violin playing chink". There are other names, but I wont mention them. Whenever I enter a room (I'm in 8th grade), everyone whispers, and starts asking me questions like, "So, where's your violin today? Oh yeah! I remember now, I smashed it!" Once, when I had my $15000 dollar violin in its case slung around my back, someone kicked the case really hard and ran away. (Because it was a BAM case, the violin just went out of tune). At another time, my German teacher, who loves classical music too, was playing some Bach on her CD player and a kid turned around and said, "So, bitch, how much did you pay her to play this?" Many of these comments hurt my feelings. It seems like people take every possible chance to make fun of me because I'm not like a lot of them. I like classical music, and I hate football. I fear that I may be ranting, because there certainly are people that do admire me and commend me. Does anyone have this problem?
