Animal Bands

This school supply works like a standard rubber band but instead of coming in a circle shape they start as either zoo animals or pets. They’ll even go back to their original animal shape after you use them! They are sold by Unica and come in a box of 24 for around $8.

    I have a really good friend, but she keeps humiliating me! First of all, she asked me something embarrassing, and I think some people heard... Secondly she told a few guys I liked them, and I wanted to be their friend..... She`s done way more, but I don`t want to get into details. How do I tell her to stop, without her getting angry, or acting like I`m wrong?

    Not really throughout my life but I guess since bullying is repeated teasing, once in fifth grade these kids made up the joke that my name(Su for those you that don't know) stood for StupidUgly, which I mean wasn't THAT bad but I was like what, 10 xD I mean I let it roll off but did end up crying in the shower once. My mom caught me and made me explain everything and made it better. So really, instead of hiding it I recommend talking to an adult about it if you're ever bullied, even tho keeping it a secret may seem like a good idea.  Ever since then I've never been bullied. I'm thankful fo that c;
