I... I met Benedict Cumberbatch.
And Andrew Scott.
Fight me.

Hi, I’m 15.

Fif-fuckin’-teen.

I’m currently in London with a group of students from my college to study criminal justice and writing, and we travel a lot to have class and do all these cool cultural things, right?

Right.

BUT- on my way back from touring Bond Street (no way I could buy anything on that street with my whole future salary) on the Tube it was rush hour. (Lo and BEHOLD!) I have a thing about people called “agorophobia” and “social anxiety disorder” as well as “please don’t touch me it’s just a personal boundary thing”, so sometimes I have panic attacks when I’m pressed into tight crowds with people.

SO:

I was pressed against the PlexiGlas piece in the Tube (Londoners you know what I’m on about) by the Tube doors and trying not to touch anyone, which I understand is impossible in rush hour but I was determined to do my best. Then this man gets on (like forties/fifties, I only saw him over my shoulder) and the train starts moving again. My group was separated from me on the other bottom half of the carriage, so I was keeping my back turned to the doors so other people could get in and not bump against my camera or purse (because heaven help the American tourist who carries so much shit around it’s crazy). But after the man got on I began to feel him bumping my butt every once in a while. I dismissed it because I was too nervous and scared in the crowd to address it and because the train was obviously bumpy and everyone was jostling around, but when we pulled into the next station he bumped me again but virtually SLID his hips across my butt. His torso didn’t touch me, but after his hand slid down the pole he was holding onto behind me and grazed the bra strap on my back I knew what he was doing. 

I shifted a little bit (like I had in the beginning) to try and ease away from him in a non-confrontational way, but when you’re stuck between glass and a creepy cretin trying to grind on you your options are very- very limited.

I had my headphones in to distract me from the crowd, but after a few more stops I pulled my right earbud out and turned to him and said “Sir, if you can can you step back?” He nodded his head and stepped back, and I got off at the next stop with my group. As soon as I got off I went from scared to furious (and scared) enough to cry. I’d always wanted to be able to be super strong in the event that I ever was in one of those situations, but I failed by taking it and only stepping up at the station before my stop.

This is disgusting. This is a grown man (amongst tons of other women and men) who prey on people- young girls, even- in public with nobody looking or noticing. I don’t know if what happened to me counts as Sexual Harassment or Sexual Assault or anything, but this is a serious issue that I do have a new perspective on now.

I always thought I’d be able to retaliate with a Falcon Kick or a swift slap/ punch to the face like some buff badass lady, but in reality the whole thing is covert. I feel like I reacted the right way, but I’m NOT happy about it. I WISH I’d punched that sick bastard on the Tube and handed him off to someone, but I didn’t. And I do regret that. The point of this post? Hell I don’t know. To share? To let people know? I don’t know, but I’m absolutely livid and embarrassed that I took it for so long and that there are people like that man who even ENJOY this.

I did it!
I did it I did it I did it!
I survived a year of college!
I made friends (and enemies) this year, got the "Excellence in Early College" recognition award, dissolved an abusive friendship, and passed my exams with better flying colors than last semester!
I did it!
I'm still a little awed that I'm where I am. I want to go to high school, but at the same time I know that my depression would come back even worse and I'd be virtually friendless; so it's a good thing that I'm where I am. 
I'm so excited to be home! I haven't been home since January for the end of Winter break. It's absolutely crazy how fast the year has gone by- sometimes school just felt like summer camp where you learn stuff.
I also loved surprising people in my labs and other classes when I'd easily run tests and they found out that I'm only 15. Oh my God their faces! It's hilarious, but most of them have actually become my friends, so I'm very fortunate.
The parties though.
They're not what TV and movies build them up to be. It's just a bunch of drunk people wobbling around with professors at every door supervising who does and doesn't get alcohol. (I didn't drink, chill.) 
Anyway, I'm excited for my term that starts on Wednesday (I'm going to LONDON to study abroad) and I can't wait to go back to school in the fall. It's a testament to how much I enjoy early college, because I'd much rather be there than anywhere else.
I'll be documenting everything in London on my vlog so... here's the link if anyone cares: hobbsme.blogspot.com

Happy summer!

Blue Belugas by Jade-Author
Blue Belugas
I finally got around to going through my shots from our private tour of the Georgia Aquarium. The place was so empty at night and we slept on the moving conveyor belt thing but when we woke up the next morning there were so MANY PEOPLE. I can't do crowds. 
The Beluga whales were unbelievably sweet, though.
