I remember the first time I got suspended for fighting. It wasn't even worth it. I should have gone to a teacher or a counselor to solve it. I was thinking about the fight for a while, trying to figure out why I fought her. Then when we came back to school we talked about it and now we’re cool with each other. But even though that conflict was squashed, I still had problems with other people at school.
I will never forget when I fought a person that I thought was my friend. It happened this year actually, we fought over something stupid. I really didn’t care though, I was so mad at her. So in the morning I asked her, “Do you want to fight me?” She said, “Yeah.” So I was like, "Okay, after school.”
When after school came I walked up to her and took off on her. Then her sister tired to jump in, and all I heard was, “Get off my sister!” In my head I was thinking, What she talking about? I am not about to do nothing. So my friend had to jump in, then they started to fight. I had left and went into the hallways, and then Ms. Lord-Walker had stopped me. She had asked me if I was involved in the fight, so I didn’t say anything. So she had to ask the security guard who was involved in the fight, and he said my name. Then she said, “Go into the office.” A lot of other incidents had happened as a result of the fight. I ended up getting suspended for five days. I was disappointed at myself because I missed out on a lot of school. My grades went down because I got suspended.
From all that I realized that it is not okay to be fighting. I have changed a lot, and my grades went up, so now I get to walk the stage. I am so proud of myself. I changed for good.
