Transferred to a New School

I was never interested in changing schools. I already had a lot of friends at the school I went to, and I liked being with those friends. But the middle school I went to was getting shut down, so I decided to go to Claremont. It was the best decision I’ve ever made.

I will never forget my first day of school. I had to stay in the office all day. Finally during 5th and 6th period I got to go to my classes and saw my best friend. Then I saw another friend I had known ever since kindergarten, but she wasn’t really talking to me. She remembered me but she was acting hecka fake. That day I wasn’t really talking because I was very shy.

Many times during those first weeks of school I got into arguments, and didn’t listen to teachers to try to fit in. That wasn’t the right thing to do, but that got me known around the school. If I could go back and do it again I wouldn’t try to fit in. I think I would just be myself, but I wonder if I had never tried to fit in would people have been talking to me?

The best part of changing schools was meeting new friends. This was the best part because it showed me people’s personalities. I now talk to people I thought I would never talk to. I saw people's real personalities. I started to see how people really think about me. I learned that when you think a person is your real friend, sometimes they really aren’t.

The worst part of changing school was me trying to fit in. I used to talk back to teachers. I pretty much tried to show off in front of people.

Now a whole two years have passed, and I've changed a lot since that first day at Claremont. I taught myself that fitting in doesn’t mean acting different; just be yourself. I’m not the Rushonda M. Lincoln everyone knew. I’m more intelligent, and now I think my own mind. I’m me.
