Finally 2 months later, I started school, everything was different to my country and there were people from all countries. I made new friends and I was doing so good in school, I were learning a new language, English, it was amazing. Even though,it was hard to read and speak the english i felt comfortable because in my class everyone was just learning like me. After the time passed I did it, but now i’m out of the ESL and sometimes I feel bad and less the other because almost in all my classes everyone can speak and understand English pretty good . While sometimes I don 't understand certain things and I feel embarrassed to ask for help or say that I didn 't understands.
We had lived in my hometown all my life, so this was going to be a significant change for me. On the first day living in the big city, I bumped into a handsome guy. I knew it was love at first sight from that moment. But knowing the type of person I am, I knew I would never be anything to him. I was always teased around about the way I looked and the way I dressed.
The entire experience is engraved in my mind atleast through spirit and I don’t regret a second of it. The commotion of the whole adventure taught me valuable life lessons. At first I was so hesitant to enter something that I would’ve regretted not leaping into. A voice in the back of my mind presented me with every doubt possible shouting fears into a void I contained inside me. Ultimately I didn’t want others to judge me negatively and decide something I couldn’t remove from their opinions.
This experience has taught me that new things are very scary but you won 't know what you need in life to succeed until you give it a try. Yeah I might miss my friends and my boyfriend but in the long run, this is my life and I should be thinking about what is beneficial for me. I now have made new friends who have same interest and goals as I do, and I still see my boyfriend at least once a week. The moments may change but the memories I have had in Victorville will never be forgotten. This move was literally life changing but it was for the better, so I thank my parents for bringing me and my family down here.
I never imagined us picking up everything and leaving to relocate to another town. My emotions were getting the best of me, a lot was going through my young mind. As we were pulling off I remembered all the fun times I had with my friends and family in that house. I was moving 100 miles away from all of that, confused about what will lie ahead for the future. Driving down
My mom had warned me over and over to change my attitude, I never did. When the end of december rolled around it was a daily occurrence to argue with my mom. After a month of fighting I was told that I should move down to my dads. Out of spite I said yes right away.This sounded like the best thing ever in that point of time. I thought it was going to be better and my dad was going to let me get away with more things.
We finally got to Winston-Salem after 2 hours of a long drive. When we pulled up to our new home it was bigger then the last one, I was happy that I moved to Winston, but the only thing was that I didn 't want to go to my new school because I knew no one there and it was going to be very awkward, but when I went the next day it wasn 't that bad, I made new friends so, I wasn 't so lonely. My mom went to work while I was at school. She said that she was glad that she took this job and she doesn 't regret it at all and I was really happy for her. The rest of that day, we explored the places that are in Winston.
All I wished for was to be back at my old school. When I walked through the doors of my new school, I was immediately scared. There were so many emotions going through mind, and I didn’t know what to expect. I was so ready to not give my new school a chance, but I saw other kids that were nervous because for some it was their first day of middle school. I worried for no reason because I met several friends and realized that I liked my new school better than my old school.
The notes come home, and the parents get “the call.” They meet with the teacher and make plans to make sure everyone is on the same page. Before long, the cast of characters grows. By middle school, there are several teachers, the disciplinarian and the nurse, all fighting over what these children do not do. Their parents feel pressured to oversee their work, as they also feel criticized as if they’ve done something wrong. These parents would do anything to help their children, yet nothing they do reaps results.
Coming to the US for most people, was the best thing to ever happen in their lives. It was the same for me. Until a time in my life slightly changed that, but I still think it profited me and helped me grow tremendously. On my first day in middle, I was so nervous to meet new people that I did not really talk much to people the first couple of weeks. One-day as I was sitting in class doing my work I saw someone look at me and I was wondering what did I do to attracted the attention of that person.
I was shocked when my mom told me we be would coming here I remember feeling helpless and confused. I wanted to see my dad and my siblings but I didn’t want to leave my friends behind and I really liked the school I was attending I had just gotten into the 3rd grade which I was very excited for. I didn’t have another option, I had to come here and looking back I’ve never appreciated anything more. My life is composed of new beginnings, I moved around a lot growing up to different house, to a different country, and different schools. Coming to america I got to settle into one place with all my family.
She immediately started crying and I looked up and did not see her number nor my number, but ultimately I knew my number was not supposed to be up there that year. In the moment everything seemed as if all my hard work had been suddenly take from me, but on the car ride back to my home I was so incredibly thankful and blessed that I was given such an amazing opportunity. I knew then that I had to audition again. The whole process of trying out for Rangerettes helped me grow in ways I never knew possible. I am much more humble and I appreciate everything that’s given to me and never do I take a moment for granted.
She was unanimously despised by all, but I changed my tune as soon as I got back my first paper. It wasn’t destroyed by red ink or defaced by notes. A single letter would summarize my future in the class. I received Cs, Ds, and Fs, and had to rewrite almost every paper. I would make the project detailed and developed, but I didn’t follow the vague rubric.
After Sookan’s grandfather dies, the soldiers make her go to school. They say that she is now old enough to go to school and their family can 't make any more excuses. Sookan didn 't want to go to school, but was brave, so she attended the next day. When Sookan goes to school her teacher is Captain Narita’s wife so she is very mean to Sookan. “‘They say you must learn to be a loyal and obedient subject and work to bring victory to the war.
As I was getting ready for school, I told myself, "I 'm so excited to finally go to school! I can 't wait to get there! I bet it 's going to be the best thing ever!" Once I finally arrive to school, I realize what it is actually like. My teacher, Miss Fisher, doesn 't seem to like that I already know how to read.
