It started at Westlake Middle School. At first I was put in the big classes, but when I started going a teacher told me that I was in the wrong class. They put me in the right class, so I was in the smallest class, but I didn't like it. Then I transferred to this school called Claremont Middle School. I was put in the small class there, too. I didn't like Claremont at first, but then I met this girl named Kenyonna Scott. She was calling me her BFF, which means Best Friend Forever.
My first big class was great because I thought I would never be in any big classes at Claremont Middle School. I got to switch into one cause in the small class I was smarter than that. In the small class there was easy work to do, like math that was so easy. I thought the spelling and reading was easy, too. My mama said that I read really well. My mama’s boyfriend told me that I can read better then him. I'm all like, ok, that's good. At first, the big class was hard because I wasn’t used to that kind of work, but then I got used to it.
Kenyonna, that girl that I told you about, she is just a ''drama queen.” But she is a good friend, she tells me everything and I tell her everything. We’re supposed to have an 8th grade Dinner Dance, but one of my other friends said she might not go. I was like, “You better go, ‘cause it’s your first dinner dance!” She might go.
Now that I'm an 8th grader I'm thinking a lot about going to high school. I'm scared, I don't know why, I just am. I don't know what high school I'm going to. I might go to Oakland High School, but my other friends might go to a different school, but my BFF is going to the same school I'm going to, so that's good. My mama wanted me to go to this school in Alameda. I was thinking of going, but I would be by myself. So yeah, our graduation is coming up, then summer. So that's it about my 8th grade life and my first big class.
