oh my god. this is damn spastic but hilarious. a must-read. some IB stuff frm mingxuan on yo fatts. hahaha.. was laughing my ___ off.
It was another hot day with the sun blazing down on me. I am just fifty metres away from the finishing line. I had to hold on. After the final struggle, I came in top ten in my class! It was a dream comes true.
I still remember the day when I was with two of my best friends.
“Who is Yo Fats?” questioned Rayan
“Oh it’s David.” said Zi Qiang.
“Whoa, if David is Yo Fats, Joshua is Yo Damn Fats!” exclaimed Rayan.
Since then, whenever I got bullied by friends, I will start say “I am Fat”. Everyday, I looked forward to recess. I will sleep in classes and had to have my friends wake me up say, “Wake up Fat Ass!” It was the worse days of my life.
During my physical education lesson, I will always come in last place. I will be scolded by my classmates for coming in so late thus delaying them from recess. Even teachers started calling me names. I was the focus of attention, becoming the fattest person in my school. Everyday, I will pray to god to help me become thin.
One day, during my physical education lesson, my teacher told everyone that there is going to be a 2.4 kilometres competition in the school two months later. This was my chance to get rid of my nickname. I was determined to prove my friends wrong.
Everyday, I run after school and before dinner for 2 kilometres. My metabolism rate became so high that I ate twice what my friends ate. Even during those periods, friends will laugh at me for running. People will say nasty things about me. The worst was when I sat on a faulty chair and it broke causing everyone nearby to start jeering saying that I did a great job.
Finally, it was the day of the competition. The first one kilometre was easy, however, as it continued on I felt like I was dehydrating. I felt like being pressed down by all the sweat. I told myself I had to press on; I must not let my hard work go to waste. Finally, it was over. I achieved my goal.
From that day onwards, I became more self confidence and I made a rap for my self too. It goes “ YoYoFats, uhhuh, uhhuh, yeayea.”
