I am sitting down in second period when the principal comes and brings a new student in . He says that the new student has come from mexico and doesn’t know english. suddenly I have a flashback of my first day of school when I moved from mexico to Utah. It was really complicated for me. It was weird moving to a place that had a different language and different ways of doing things. I was a little scared because I was about to start school and I was going to have trouble understanding the teacher.
When school started I sat in the back so I wouldn't draw any attention to myself. Ms bolling, my new second grade teacher, made all of us introduce ourselves to every body. I went up to a kid named Ivan and I told him my name and started talking to him in spanish. Ivan knew spanish so he was the only one I could talk to. Ivan helped the teacher translate what she was saying to me.
After class we went to lunch and I sat a lone at the end of the first table. After lunch was recess but I didn't want to go outside because I was going to be a loner. After I was done eating one of the teachers took me outside because I couldn't stay inside during recess. After she took me outside I grabbed a soccer ball from the equipment room and I started playing by myself. I was kicking the ball at the wall and dribbling it. I was pretty good at soccer and I could do some tricks with the soccer ball.
While I was dribbling the soccer ball I heard my name. It was Ivan calling me . He came over to me and told me I was pretty good at dribbling and doing tricks and asked me if I wanted to play soccer with him and his friends. I told him yeah and we both went and played soccer in the same team. When the game was over I had scored two goals and Ivan had scored three. He then introduced me to his friends and after that day Ivan became my best friend and I had met his friends and they became my friends.
Suddenly I snap out of my flashback and realize that marco is sitting next to me. I introduce myself and I start helping him out with the worksheet we had to do. After we are both done with the worksheet the bell rings and he asks me if he can eat lunch with me and I say yeah . After we are done we start playing kickball with my friends and I introduce marco to my friends. After that day me and marco become friends and we are still friends since then.
