When I graduate from high school and I am just about to start my real life I want to look back at my life and be happy, I mean doesn 't everybody want to look back on their lives and have no regrets? I know that there are a couple of things I am happy that I 've done and a couple I wish that I wish I could change a bit. So now I am going to reflect back so I know what I can change before I start high school. During my middle school life I have not been the most friendly person there is, I mean yeah I goof around a lot and do still talk to a lot of people but I still can not consider most of them my friends. Because what is the big point in making a million friends but then just losing them as soon as you hit high school. Also think for a minute too how many of your one million friends in middle school were truly there for you when you need them. Right now the reason I don 't have many friends in middle school is I am not in any specific grouping like everybody else. In our middle school there are so many groups that kids will divide themselves to just one group. There are the really sporty boys or girls or as you will ¨the popular kids¨. Of course there are popular kids that do not do sports but but that is what most of them do. There are the gamer …show more content…
So here is the big question, How will this help or hurt me in my first year of highschool. I could look at this from both views here right now. The positive view is that I am going to change friends anyways. I may not even talk to the people I know now and I could meet completely different people that I truly want to be friends with. Now the negative view, Since I 'm not close right now with anyone and it is even harder for me to because I live in a small town twenty miles away from Iowa Falls so I may not get close to anybody during my highschool career. Even worse what if nobody really wants to hang out with me just because I am that small ninth grader that likes things that a lot of other high schoolers may

Time is a thief. Before you know it, you’re already in middle school trying to make yourself known. But is it really all worth it in the end? Growing up from the start, I never really knew who I was, but that’s normal because elementary school is for you to build your childhood. It’s for making friends and playing tag with them at the playground or going out for ice cream with your parents after school.
I left friends that I’ve known since kindergarten. So when the fourth grade started, I was completely alone. I had to get to know my surroundings, try and meet new friends, and figure out how things worked around here. Then in the seventh grade, things really went downhill. That was when everything started to change.
This created a great rift between me and the people that had been my friends. I began trying to hang out with friends but found they were always busy while I was home reading, waiting for an adventure. I had managed to keep a few of my friends and these people are still my friends today, but first I had to deal with being solitary for a while. After I accepted the way school, and friends were going to go I only faced one obstacle. Almost my entire life changed after my move, I had a new routine, some new friends, and a new way I had to learn.
Last year I moved from Guttenberg to Manchester, which moved me from Clayton Ridge to West Delaware High School. The whole move was a speedy process. Before we moved I only knew 3 people that attended West Delaware and out of those people, none of them are my age. I was upset with my parents for putting me in the position of leaving all my friends that I had finally gotten used to, to move somewhere where I didn’t know anybody. A rush of emotions were coming onto me; fear of losing friends, anger and resentment towards my family for not telling me until they had already bought the house, but also excitement because I would be starting all over again and meeting new people.
In Kate Murphy’s passage of “Do Your Friends ActuallyLike You?”She states that “friends are people you take the time to understand and allow to understand you. ”(2) With the more time they spend together, they become closer and more connected. In addition,making friends can also help to correlate with better social skills, problem/conflict resolution, etc.
I did not have many friends before simply because I was too scared to try to relate with people mostly because I didn’t believe in people, and that was a mistake. I found out that summer that people are so much more than they appear to be. My crew was made up of a hippy, a hick, a soldier, a nerd (me), and a brainy girl. I learned so much about them and sure, there were some arguments, there were times where I didn’t know if it was going to be okay, but there were more times when I realized just how much i needed and appreciated each of them. During our work, I filled many different roles; I learned from this because the next year I took initiative and filled the role of tuba in the top band at school.
The transition from high school can be very difficult. Going from knowing everything about a school, its programs as well as surroundings to not knowing anything basically is a huge change. Meeting new friends and connections in the area could be the most difficult of all. One of the most important things that I have learned since being here is finding you "niche" here at the University. Being successful in class and also out of class is the main objective in college.
Most of my friends became friends with the other girls there and I had thought that they were going to become my friends too but instead they weren’t. In order for me to fit in I would have to have a phone,which i didn’t have, have nice clothes, being able to dress nice and go to the classes that they did. I would follow them and try to do most of the things that they would do in order for them to accept me. Well I realized that throughout the two years that I was there that I wasn’t happy.
Lots of people say that middle school is hard, has lots of responsibilities and you have to be on time for everything. Then I thought there weren 't serious till I actually went to middle school myself. Soon after elementary I went to a middle school that I went to was called Lincoln middle school, it wasn’t a big school, but it was a decent school. When I first went into that building I was excited to make new friends and meet my teacher, but then this lady that was the 6th grade dean(consular) gave me this piece of paper that had many classes on it and I ask her “why there are so many classes?”
Throughout elementary school I kept a small group of friends and I never made any new friends with the exception of one kid, Matthew Peterson. There was a lot of kids throughout my grade school career that would come and live in St. Louis for a year or two and then go to live somewhere else. Most of these kids had parents that worked for Companies that would constantly transfer them to work somewhere else so their kids wouldn 't stick around very long. I was never friends with any these kids, until when i was in fourth grade when I met Matthew. He moved to St. Louis from Arizona and was a nice, kind, and very funny kid that was always had a big crooked smile that ran across his face and through his bright red cheeks.
Stereotypes upon High School Every high school is going to have their different cliques, which is where you tend to find yourself. There’s many different ways for students to find their place. Many student join clubs and activities through this they find people who are interested in the same activities as them, students bond on these activities and usually become good friends. Cliques in high school existed in the beginning and they still exist up to this day. For example, there the popular group, the jocks, the nerds, and the fakes.
Existentialism in the Real World As my high school saga comes to a satisfactory conclusion, I am left feeling very accomplished, educated, and rounded as an individual. And as I prepare for life beyond high school, I do feel a little worried. How could it get better than this? The great friends, the great moments, all the school activities and events. There’s no way things could get better right?
This is short of reality, as many students in high school are excited to see fresh new faces, or simply do not care. No need to worry if you 'll encounter your own Regina George when joining high school. 2. Cliques Although there may seem an array of the typical jocks, cheerleaders, nerds etc.,
The first day of middle school for me was both terrifying and exciting. I made a lot of new friends within the year. I remember the first day very well. I had woke up at 5;30 a.m. I was extremely tired.
As middle school began, hard working and social life had shaped a hefty problem for me. Middle school brought forth harder work, and attending a different school expunged almost all of my previous friends. I began to work much harder as a student, because I felt that it was important to receive superb grades. However, this affected my life with friends in later years.
