Gym class, fml. - February 6th 2011, 12:37 AM

Second semester has started, and I now have gym first period every morning from now until June.

My gym teacher has recommended that we don't wear long sleeved shirts, because we're playing volleyball for the next two weeks, and apparently it can mess us up or something? Correct me if I'm wrong on this one.

All I know if is that on my arms are a bunch of ugly-looking scars that when repeatedly smacked at with a volleyball (from doing bumps and such) get red and are really noticeable. I have four good friends in my gym class, and we were all comparing how red our arms were (yes, stupid, I know... I actually forgot they were there though), and I showed one of them. She looked at my arms and just had that look on her face that I can't really describe. Pity? Disappointment? Sadness?

Don't really know what the point of this was guys. Sorry. If you have any advice that would be appreciated though...

Sorry about that =( The "ohmygod you cut" look is tough. I guess I'd say just ho ahead and wear long sleeves anyways n tell your teacher you have a rash or something?

You could get those skin-colored tights for your arms like you can get for your legs?

I hate it when people give you that look, yeah just go ahead and wear long sleeve shirts anyway, and as blair said just tell the teacher you have a rash or something, or maybe to talk to the teacher in private and tell them the real reason?
Good luck and take care

I played volleyball on my school's team. Since it was during winter, we would wear thin long-sleeved shirts, and it didn't effect playing too much. Honestly, situation, I would just be like "whatever" and just wear long-sleeves. I mean, it's only gym class, unless you get graded based on how well you play (which I severely doubt). And besides... It IS winter... I'd be wearing long-sleeves, but that's just me.


I love : )

You could wear a tank with a zip-up hoodie or something. A lot of girls in my old gym class did that.

I've got gym first period this semester too!
If your teacher will not let you wear long sleeves period, you can try wrapping your arms with athletics tape and say you injured it and must wear it. Or if you just have a few cuts maybe you could put band aids on them and say a pet scratched you? At least this is only for 2 weeks.


And here you are living, despite it all.
