Intro:

Hey there, readers. It's Simon Fitzgerald here, ready to spill the beans on what it's like to be a bully in this crazy world we live in. Strap yourselves in because things are about to get real.

The Beginning

You know, being a bully isn't something you choose; it just kind of happens. At least that's how it was for me. Growing up, I never really fit into any specific crowd at school. I wasn't popular or particularly good-looking, but hey, who needs all that when you've got attitude?

Finding My Target

Every bully needs someone to torment - someone who makes them feel powerful and superior. And let me tell you, when I first laid eyes on Michael Afton back in elementary school... well, let's just say he seemed like the perfect candidate.

Becoming Friends with Alexis Afton

But before we dive deep into my bullying escapades with Michael Afton (or Mikey as some people call him), let me introduce you to someone else: Alexis Afton – William Afton’s oldest daughter and Mikey’s identical twin sister.

Alexis is one tough cookie herself – beautiful yet fierce – and she happened to catch my eye early on too (not many girls do). We started dating freshman year of high school after bonding over our mutual interest in horror movies and video games.

Bullying Begins

Now that you have an idea of how things were set up for me socially speaking (wink), let’s fast forward a bit towards sophomore year where everything took off like wildfire - only instead of burning down forests or anything useful…we burned bridges…and reputations…

Operation Nightmare

It all began innocently enough during lunch break one day when Mikey accidentally bumped into Alexis while carrying his tray full of food across the cafeteria floor (#clumsyaf).

Well folks…I saw my opportunity and I took it. A smirk spread across my face as I watched Alexis' lunch fly all over Mikey's already stained shirt. Our eyes met, and in that moment, we both knew what had to be done.

The Torture Begins

From that day on, Mikey became the target of our relentless torment. We would leave creepy notes in his locker signed "Nightmare," send him prank calls at odd hours of the night (#sleeptightMikey), and even stage elaborate scares just to see his terrified expression.

Backlash from Other Students

Of course, not everyone was a fan of our little game. Some students sympathized with poor Mikey (or so they claimed). They tried reporting us to teachers or telling their parents about how mean we were being.

But let me tell you something - those people have no idea what it's like to walk in our shoes. They don't understand the thrill of power or the satisfaction that comes with feeling superior for once in your life.

Reflections: Inside My Mind

Now you might be wondering why someone like me would choose such an existence – constantly inflicting pain upon others instead of spreading joy or whatever nonsense people expect us bullies to do these days (yawn).

Well, here’s a secret for ya: deep down inside this twisted mind lies a scared little boy who has been pushed around one too many times by life itself…by circumstances outta’ control…

Power Struggle

You see folks; bullying gives me back some semblance of control – however fleeting it may be – over my own destiny. It allows me to dictate who suffers rather than being powerless myself.

It’s quite ironic really if you think about it…the bullied becoming the bully...but hey…that’s life isn’t it? Full circle baby!

Conclusion

So there you have it folks - a glimpse into my life as a bully. It's not pretty, it's not glamorous, but it is what it is. I can't say that I'm proud of everything I've done, but hey, we all make mistakes.

If you take anything away from this entry, let it be this: bullies aren't just mindless monsters; they're human beings with their own stories and struggles. And sometimes those struggles manifest in the form of tormenting others.

But hey…life goes on…and so do nightmares…

So until next time...keep surviving out there!
