For example, in middle school, I had all my class with my best friends. When we had classes together, we would talk, joke around, help each other with class work and homework, but now all of my friends have a different class schedule than I do because they play a different sport, have different electives, or they're doing things they like. Therefore, Seeing my friends find what they enjoy doing and interacting with new people is great, but sometime it's hard because I would feel left out when they talk about things with their new friends. I've grown apart from 3 friends because we don't have any classes together. We still talk once in awhile, but we're just not as close as we were last year.
During summer break Walter had to kinds of friends. Those he played basketball with and everybody else. Also he had a list of fights in every grade he went to, but Mr. Lasher told Walter that he won’t tolerate fighting in his class. At the end of 6th grade Walter thanked Mr. Lasher for helping him with his speech
This is what happened to me, but in the end I passed my subjects. However, I got three failures during that year, so I couldn’t be there the next year. My mom was disappointed at the end, because the teacher could not do anything about the 3 failures, so I had to change schools. I feel that at this age was hard for me because I had all my friends and my brothers in that school. Now, I was going to be by myself in another school.
Marc had a different outlook on things, compared to Rebecca and the other girls. He was never able to show the person he really wanted to be, due to him not being able to open up around his parents. He stayed to himself all through school until he met Rebecca one of the popular girl in school. Rebecca begins to talk to him, he started to over exaggerate when speaking to her. He made her think his dad was always working around celebs, which then made her more interested in their friendship.
Same story goes throughout Middle School. I was depressing to be with when my best friend had boyfriends or even talked about boys. Eventually I couldn 't stand it anymore. I left the three musketeers (me and two other kind and caring girls one year older than me whom I met in Cadet Corp. and Cross Country and saved me from my lonely middle school experience), and I tried to find just one friend whose mind wasn 't filled with the thought of boys. I was like a nomad, moving from group to group.
From the start of middle school to the first day of ninth grade I was lost, fearful of going and doing different things or anything that was outside of my “norm.” Even just the thought of leaving that comfort zone forced my thoughts down a dim path of self-deprecation. The last few years that I continued to do homeschool were the worst. As I grew older i started wanting conversations and company outside of my family and myself. I began to feel a crushing force of stagnation. It felt like I wasn’t going anywhere or doing anything, the idea of being stuck in one place not moving was like I was trapped in quick sand.
I recently experienced the effect of peer pressure. In class a week or so ago I was talking casually with a new friend when another boy came up. This boy was acting really nervous and off, which was out of character for him because he is typically a nice person. I sensed something was out of place with this situation as soon as I saw this boy 's friends across the room laughing with their phones out filming. The boy came up behind my friend and asked if he would kiss my friends neck.
She was told she would not achieve more than a third grade education and would not develop much verbal speech because she suffered major hearing loss (Bates). Heather was affected in many ways both physically and mentally. It was really hard for her to learn in her early years of schooling because she went to a hearing school. She did not have many friends and felt excluded around others. Popularity was an issue and she felt very isolated.
My first day in school was horrible. I didn’t know anyone and I knew very little english, words like “may I use the bathroom, Hi, yes, no,and thank you”. The only person that talked to me the first day was the teacher I did not end up not making friends. I cried for 2 months when we first moved here I hated everything I missed my old house, my friends and my school. I was mad at my mom for making us move here and my dad for moving here in the first place.I realize now why they moved us here.
Nothing is impossible when you put in hard work. My life has changed, I won’t stop trying until i reach to my goals. I have been through the good and bad times, sometimes i get tired and wanted to give up but my coach’s words inspired me to do better. Without him, I would already gave up and never get to experienced this
We played soccer, football, and sometimes basketball. When I passed to 6th grade all my friends went to Tejeda while I went to Bush. This wasn’t so bad for me because I saw a chance to make new friends, and I have, although I still miss my other friends I feel like I have more friends here. Recess; recess was the best part of the whole school year. I got to hangout with my friends we would play soccer, football, and sometimes basketball I got to talk and talk and talk without getting in trouble from the teachers!!!
Augusts wanted to go to a regular school after being home schooled for a while and he met his teachers but he was really nervous. After getting all of his classes, the teachers sat him next to a kid named Jack in every class, Mrs.Petosa had Jack show August around the school and immediately they became friends. Jack and August were walking around school and then a kid accidentally bumped into August and the boy said ‘Whoa”!. Jack and August were making fun of the way the kid looked after he saw August and a little later, Jack started making fun of Jack by saying “I 'd want to. I think you should get a secret squirt gun or something and attach it to your eyes somehow.
The most significant challenge I faced in my life was during my sophomore year of high school during which the music director had quit. This caused the band to have no one to direct it or teach us. This caused the bulk of the effort to be pushed to the few instructors we had and to us the students. This challenge had been present throughout the summer, the marching season, and the concert season. During the summer, we were informed that the current music director was stepping down and that there would be no one to teach us.
