So, after I’ve posted the earlier version, today I had decided to post a new version, since many things had taken place since the last time I posted the timeline.
Basically the concept is the same; new trolls campaign starts when the trolls find out the new girl that I may like or the girl the trolls was using for the current trolls campaign leaves STA. Like the previous one, they will be groupped into campaigns.
So here’s the timeline…
Early high school trolls: Late 2008 to mid 2009
The first form of trolls, back then called ‘bullies’, that I encountered in high school was back in year 7, before I move to STA. Unlike today’s trolls, they use physical methods to hurt me, or sometimes say something bad about me that makes me feel annoyed. Also, there were times when they used the subject of me liking a girl, which I think is the base of what became the current subject of today’s trolls. It ended in mid 2009 when I finally moved to ST. Andrews International School of Bangkok.
First trolls campaign: Late 2009 to mid 2010
My new life at STA seems to start good, with many people helping me getting started in the new environment. However, if I remember correctly, after half-term break in October the first trolls campaign finally emerges, on the subject of me liking a new girl in year 8 at that time. This is the founding of the today’s trolls. Although it is classed as a trolls campaign, but at that time work seems to be scattered and there was no fixed group of trolls (I.E members are always on the change). The first trolls campaign is not too bad, even during its peak when I ordered a Valentine rose to the girl that the trolls claimed that I like back then. It ended along the end of year 8 in mid 2010.
Second trolls campaign: Late 2010 to April 5th, 2012
After the summer holiday, with the arrival of year 9 also came the arrival of a batch of new students, sadly enough 2 of them are my old friends from my old school. And the trolls had managed to used one of them as a subject to annoy me. This tension started during the last few weeks of year 8; it was in year 9 when it evolved into the long and painful second trolls campaign. The year 9 period wasn’t too bad, but worse than year 8, thanks to the 21 January 2011 event when I mistakenly posted on Facebook that I bought something from Chiang Mai during the New Year trip for the girl that the trolls claimed that I like back then; the fact is I mistakenly called her ‘girlfriend’. But tension eventually eases throughout year 9, but unlike the first trolls campaign, it did not end when year 9 ended; but instead continued into year 10.
The year 10 period is the last half of the second trolls campaign, and is the worst, especially during its peak in February this year when I ordered a chocolate for the girl the trolls claimed that I like back then and also my posts on her wall. At this time the trolls had also unified into a fixed group and started trolling me on Facebook. Unlike the year 9 period, the tension did not ease easily, and the trolls had managed to kick off an attack by commenting on one of my post on the girl’s wall in bulk (more than 20 comments within a few seconds!). After that, the situation worsened slowly, and eventually on April 5th, 2012 the second trolls campaign finally ended with me losing the fight. The Songkran celebration on the next day did made me feel better, but not totally.
Third trolls campaign: May 23rd, 2012 to August 30th, 2012
After Songkran holiday, there were about 4 weeks in which I have to deal with the aftermath of the second trolls campaign, but at least they were not too bad. However immediately after I made a wall post on one of the girl’s wall in year 10, tension suddenly built up, and the next day, on May 23rd, 2012 it suddenly evolves into the third trolls campaign. Luckily the exams week that follows did helped to stop the trolls. This trolls campaign reached its peak around June 6th when the trolls threatened to launch a troll war on June 8th. However it did not really happened, and the tension slowly eases. However, without a conclusion, the third trolls campaign suddenly ended on August 30th, 2012.
Fourth trolls campaign: August 30th, 2012 to September 11th, 2012
Like year 9, as year 11 arrives also came a batch of new students, although the batch seems to be smaller. However just 4 days into year 11, one student went as far as to create a rumor that I like one of the new girl in year 11; and it quickly evolved into the fourth trolls campaign. Unlike the first, the second and the third trolls campaign, the trolls did not have a chance to annoy me to the maximum, because the lifetime of this trolls campaign was cut short on September 11th, 2012 when a new trolls campaign breaks out. Even though this trolls campaign is short, but it is still annoying, but not as bad as the second and third trolls campaign.
Fifth trolls campaign: September 11th, 2012 to now
Although year 11 was still in its early days, but the trolls had managed to forcefully start a new trolls campaign. Like the fourth trolls campaign, the girl used was a new student. However this one is different in the fact that she’s in my tutor group and my Chemistry class. This means that the trolls already have some good chances to annoy me. I’m not sure if this is directly linked to my personal targets that I set during PHSE lesson on September 7th, but there is a chance that the trolls may have known about this and they randomly select one of the new girls. Currently they did not annoy me to the maximum, and the situation is very calm at the moment, but things can change very suddenly and that’s what I am scared of.
In conclusion, as you can see, there are at least 5 trolls campaigns so far that I faced in high school. However on September 28th the trolls did managed to try to start the sixth trolls campaign, but luckily the attempt failed. I can say that was very lucky!
That’s it for now…
