How are they handling the pressure that I am putting on them? But I am far from perfect—so my hope and prayer is that even while I make mistakes, my children will always know that I love them and want the best for them. And furthermore, I hope to continue to study and understand why some children in my classroom simply do not grasp on to the concept of
Not only was I going to move away from my home, but I was also going to a new country. I didn’t know how to react to the news. The move to Canada had a new adventure feel. Part of me was curious and excited, but part of me was scared and anxious. The worst part of moving is the packing.
There was never a reason of why we had to move, I was told that we are moving soon. That was my sign I had to clean and pack up my stuff to move again. When I first moved I don't really remember it, all I know is that i did not like it the least bit. The house was very different from my small subdivision before. This house was a fixer-upper and on lots of land.
I thought that everything would be over and that I would still be best friends with my friends when high school ended. We even planned us moving to California together and just live life. Then it hit me, how am I going to live in a really nice place or have a decent job if I cannot even get an A in any class. I reflected my life and realized that it was not good. The way that I was going I was not going to get anywhere in life.
Most of the time I did not know what the phrases meant and I was too shy to ask my friends what they meant. I was afraid that my friends would make fun of me because I did not know what they meant. Therefore, I always acted like I knew what they meant. However, after a while it was bad because I did not understand many things since phrases were used a lot. So I started to ask my friends what they meant knowing that they might make fun of me, but they did not make fun of me.
“We’re moving to America on Saturday.” This was going to be indeed a huge challenge for me. The next day I kept wondering what would it be like in America and how my friends would react if I thought them bye. At the time I was in first grade so leaving my friends would be bad for me. I knew simple English so America wouldn't be as hard for someone who didn’t know any english at all. The whole class time I would be thinking of America and wouldn't pass attention to what the teacher would say.
Stuff went through my head, “Am I going to have to speak in public? Will everyone laugh at me for doing a mistake?” I was terrified but excited. I did not know how to describe it, Territed? I graduated with luck and it will never happen again. I woke up really nervous and did not know what to do.
When I started high school I felt like I did not belong here. High school was very different from my middle school. Some of my teachers tried to tell me how high school was going to be like for all of us in the moment I believed them but the only advice I valued was my older brothers. “No one is really going to help you or give you direction. In fact, the odds are against you.” -robert greene I picked this quote because teachers are not going to going to hold you hand throughout high school.
Not only because of the move it was because I have friends that I still talk to today but it is harder to go over and play sports or video games, my other problem is that you have to remember your home you were in for four years. Well this is my day moving big boxes very annoying, but at least my family is having fun wild doing it. We are all talking and bonding it is very interesting hearing my dad talk about his cool adventures when he travels. Then we took a trip to the new house. Then we started unloading the boxes and organizing the spoons and forks.
I was, or at least felt like an outsider, just because I was new. The summer after my eighth grade year my family moved from the town that I had lived in my whole life. It sucked. Why did we have to move? I was happy where I was.
