If you really knew me.

So, today I watched a TV program called If You Really Knew Me. I have heard of it before but it is an American program and I've never seen it on TV over here before but I was flicking through channels today and I found it. I had heard people talking about how good it was but I didn't really know what to expect. I just thought it was amazing. The program made me think about what would happen if that same thing happened at my school and what I would say. If you don't know the program then this won't make any sense to you.

This program is basically about something that people are taking into schools in America that actually looks like a really good idea. Basically, people go into schools and have a day where they do loads of exercises to break down the cliques and stereotypes at schools. It seems like they do some ice breaker activities for fun then they get into groups and have to finish the sentence "If you really knew me you would know..." and just talk to their group about any problems or issues they have had in the past. It seems like a really good idea and seemed to really help people.

Like I said earlier the whole time I was watching the program I was thinking what if this exact same thing happened at my school. I honestly don't think it would be as successful in my school, or they would have to do it with just the last 3 years as I don't think younger people would really benefit as much from it. I would like to see if it would work in English schools though, I would be kind of reluctant to open up to some of the people in my year. I know that is the whole point of the program but I really don't know if I could trust some people in my year with my secrets and stuff. I don't know, its a great idea but I'm not sure how it would work here. Some of the kids in the program seemed to think like me at the start but it worked out. So honestly I don't know what would happen in my school.

I was also thinking the whole time about what I would actually say if I were on the program. I came up with a few but they're very personal so I'm not going to say them all. I can say one though. I know I would say "If you really knew me you would know that my dad died when I was 12 and I don't think I've ever got over it". Thats one that most of my close friends know at least part of.

So, that is just something I really wanted to talk about today because it really changed my thinking. Signing off  now! Bye!
