My first day of high school as a freshmen in a new level of education Is what I was thinking when I woke from slumber that morning in bed. Stepping foot on the campus wasn’t even the beginning, taking the school bus in the morning is where the first taste of being a freshmen and actually starting and being an high school student. I started to get really nervous and a sense of reality hit me.

This surge of anxiety
As we pull up to the familiar steps of the school, the squeal of the brakes pierces my ears, and the bus arrives at 8:05 am. We soon file out of the bus saying our thank yous and goodbyes to our friendly bus driver. My morning journey has ended, and the odyssey called high school is just

I remember being startled when my heart started to pound and the Holy Ghost urged me to move quickly into the bus. I listened and moved faster as I looked back towards the school. Gun shots began, backpacks dropped and kids scattered to hide behind random cars and in nearby neighborhoods. Chaos
Kinda wish they had planned to meet up at the college at a later time but I guess I can’t control how long the trip is! “Look at that! The bus has TVs!” a classmate shouted from the back, “that’s so cool!” It was cool, the bus was packed basically with a lot of teenagers who were tired but most likely hyped up on energy drinks.
