It started in my English class; Ms. A was telling us a story about when she was in high school. She explained, that for her senior year her parents made her move schools. She was really upset about it. She felt her life slowly getting worse and worse. Suddenly the first day of school came and she was not happy. She avoided everybody and did not want to make any friends.
Then she went home and complained to her parents about how much she disliked the new school and that she could not believe they did that to her. It was the second day of her senior year. She lived pretty far so she was late! She walked into her class trying to avoid all eye contact. She quickly sat in the first seat she saw closest to the door. She then noticed she had sat next to this girl, her name was Lindsay. Lindsay complimented her on her jeans; she started asking all these questions about her life.
By the end of the period Lindsay had practically learned her whole life’s story. Well, first period was over and Ms. A was heading to second period, she got there and these girls started calling out her name. Apparently sometime between first and second period Lindsay had told all her friends about Ms. A and that they should meet her and to be her friend. The rest of the year went by in a breeze for Ms. A. She was not so sad or angry anymore. She had made friends and they stuck by her throughout the whole year.
This story had reminded me about my first day in her class. I was new and I did not know anybody, all I wanted to do was avoid everybody. Plus I was not very talkative so of course I did not want to make friends. But after about a week Ms. A had made a seating chart and I was placed next to this girl, her name was Ashley.
She started asking me question after question about me, and after a while we were talking as if we had known each other for a long time. At first I thought it was a bit strange but I figured I did not really want to be alone the whole year and she seemed really nice. She introduced me to her friends in class. We have been friends ever since. The rest of my year was not as bad as I thought it would be in this class.
