Often times in a society where every aspect of life is dictated for you it is hard to find acceptance. In middle school I was beat up on a routine basis so most days I ate my lunch outside behind a wall. I had only one friend and even he didn’t hang out with me much. It wasn’t until I decided to come to cyber that I found a place where I fit in. 7th grade was particularly harsh in that I lost my only friend to suicide.
My first day as a middle schooler was a horrible one. I faced a lot of depression and loneliness. Before I went to Chaboya Middle School I was in Ramblewood Elementary. I was on way to graduating the sixth grade and I was on my way to Sylvandale Middle School, the middle school I was supposed to go to, with all my best friends that I had in Elementary. After my graduation at Ramblewood Elementary my parents gave me some news about my middle school.
Wright’s wisdom was when she sent Richard to go shopping for food. He came back empty handed and crying. Some boys had stolen all the money and sent him running home in panic. She sent him out again with more money and another list, he returned home shortly with the same story. Mrs. Wright knew that she wasn’t always going to be around to defend him, to teach him a lesson on how to defend himself she sent him out again and gave him a heavy stick.
Summer was winding down and I was getting ready for school. I was kind of nervous but I felt good. I was ready to out of middle school. I heard that the upper classman were really rude to the freshman so I was nervous. On the first day of school it was only freshman.
I would never have thought walking into the cafeteria this morning, how much a signal mans words could impact and change me for the better. Dr. Fowlin’s words were like music to my ears; I could not stop listening to what he had to stay. He made solutions to my thoughts and worries. To be honest, before the assembly, I felt bad for those who do not fit in, but I never took action to make them feel welcomed. Once listening to Mikey, I realized I could do many simple things to make someone's day.
in the book it says "unlike the little sweetgum school, where we were safely contained in one room all day, the new school had a chaotic thing in placed called the rotation system (karassiens 105)". she was use to on staying in one place but now her new school got her going to different class each time the classes are over. she doesn’t like the "harsh bells rang" and how the hallway is always crowded. she also went to the wrong classroom several times. "A big boy said, "Here come the pigmy."
Every student starting middle school has a conflict in making new friends the first days of school. Me myself also had problems making new friends because I was very shy. Fortunately I had one of my friends from elementary school. Although I'd love to tell you the way I made friends I changed over the year to survive middle school. Overall I was a good student in elementary, but I had many flaws and I still do.
One more time, my advocacy teacher is Vietnamese, so I can ask him about the class and where is it. But, I need more time to figure out, so I was late in Math class, and I felt very embarrassment. Even though, I do not understand while my teach speaking, but, I am very confident in Math class. Two periods pass, it was lunchtime. We just sit down on the table without get line to pick up a meal.
Has a child around the age of two years old I listened to no one, dressed myself and liked to do everything on my own excluding potty training myself. Somewhere with the transition from middle school to high school I lost myself and some independence along the way. My freshman year had been a bust of getting in trouble and My sophomore year had been all about finding myself. Freshman year I found myself dating a senior boy and ditching out on class. Studies and my future came last in my mind.
They started telling us that African Americans were going to fight Latinos afterschool. I didn 't pay too much attention because I didn’t know they were being serious. As the day went on I saw students scared and having conversations about it while others were planning on walking out. At lunch everything seemed normal so I forgot about it. When school was over I got out of class and met up with two of my friends Ana and Leslie to go home.
A time where I have faced with a challenge was the beginning of my freshman year at Gahr high school. Going to a school in which I really did not want to go to, I was faced with challenge of not having old friends to be able to socialize with. For the first few weeks of school I had almost socially limited myself to other people. Not budging to make new friends at a school in which the number of koreans and even asians are low I was always alone to only one or two of my golf friends. As a person in which socializing face to face with a person as important I started to slowly sought after ways to make new friends.
Everyone who had promised to be by my side had left me behind to deal with it on my own. Walking out the cafeteria, I would have my lunch slapped out of my hands and I would be pushed around in a circle, while everyone laughed. I was called out my name, but not once did I complain. I had spoken to a counselor about this bullying, but she had told me, “There’s nothing we can do. No matter where you go, you’re going to encounter people like that.” I never thought I would receive that response, but that is what I got and I dealt with it.
