I remember going home that day and telling my mom all about my first day at my new school. I think, for the first time since my Dad had been laid off I felt a peace. I felt the fear that I’d felt over this drastic change in my life dissipate and vanish as I realized that we were going to be okay, that I was going to enjoy living in Dewitt. Though I would miss Texas and all the things I’d left behind, I knew that in my new home, I would be happy and I’ve been happy living in Dewitt ever

The bell rang for break, so Akansha introduced me to her friends Samantha, a tall, blond girl who’s quiet as a mouse and Alaya, a girl with long eyelashes like a Covergirl model. On that day, the weight on my shoulders immediately disappeared. Soon after, I made more friends, I was eager to go to school everyday.
My nine years at Mary Queen of Peace has been unforgettable and memories I will never forget. I remember walking into my first day of kindergarten in Mrs. Bucheit’s class and knowing only 6 kids in the grade.

My schedule for semester 2 consisted of Math, Biology, Physics and 3D Modeling. I originally had English but enrolled it in ADLC to lighten the weight of my coursework. Math was always my favorite subject in school ever since Elementary school.
My alarm was blaring at six-thirty A.M., and the bright sun was shining through the curtains. I started my daily routine - shower, eat breakfast, get dressed, and brush my teeth. Around seven-thirty, I send my beautiful kids off to school with loving hugs and waves good-bye.
