The warm breeze blows past me as I open the door to the Sweetwater Middle School. Shouts and hoots of excitement about the New Year came from behind me as I speak amid my social circle. It was going to be a wonderful year with delightful students and teachers. By
It was a fine, summer, Saturday when everything changed for a young teenager named Miller Frederick. School had already started for Miller and he was at a new school. That summer, his family had moved from Pensacola, Florida to Dewitt, Michigan so Miller didn’t have many friends. He lived in a very rural area so he didn’t have many neighbors he could hang out with. Miller had just gotten back from his first day at his new school and he became friends with another new kid from Germany. His name was Reginald Kleinhans. Surprisingly enough, they had a lot in common. They both loved basketball, horror movies, and writing.
Walking into Booth Middle School on the first day of seventh grade, all I wanted was a friend. I cared little about whether they would make an impact on my life; as a newcomer to Peachtree City, I was open to befriend anyone. Within the first week, I met Annabelle. I was so preoccupied with the excitement of having a new friend that I was unaware of how greatly she would impact not only my first day, first week, or first year of middle school, but how vastly she would affect my future.
He then texted her in a sweet manner,"Hi there beautiful. I miss you already. How are you and the baby?" He then sent the text as he saw his room was empty and soon kids would start to enter at homeroom only to then hope that right now he would make sure everything is going to be okay. He then saw how that the principal came in asking if his brother is single only to tell him that he is single only to then see the principal go as he then grinned knowing how that maybe Sam might have a girlfriend here because of how the principal talked about this single teacher here. He then heard the phone vibrate happy that right now everything is going great as he knew that today was awesome because of how it started in peace as he ate his breakfast that he bought for himself. He then ate his crosandwich only to toss the wrapper away as well as the empty ketchup packets as he took a sip of his coffee only to then remember to make sure that they told them about the witch stuff since today would start with Medieval times and their dark days of magic and torture. He then got everything ready for home
Disaster It was an ordinary day in new york, People going to work, birds chirping to indicate that fall had just sprung. A normal tuesday, the sun rising, another ordinary school day at central queens junior high, but not for Robert. Robert had snuck out of school, and he had found out that a couple of his friends were sick. He invited them over and one of his best friends, Alex came over.

They hung out until it was time to go back over to Robert 's house, when his new acquaintance Jacob said,
My first day of the second grade, I knew no one except the teacher and my younger brother. Kindergarten and first grade had been easy enough, but I was scared of the upcoming year. The only thing I knew about being the new kid was that it hadn’t panned out too great for Addie from the American Girl books. Mrs. Henson’s class was fairly quiet throughout the day, for most kids were nervous or tired. We neared the end of the day and I was ecstatic over the fact that hadn’t made a complete fool of myself. I hadn’t met anyone yet, but I thought that that would be a challenge for another day. Unfortunately, that’s not what Mrs. Henson had in mind. She sent us all out to recess with a grin plastered on her face and with me practically kicking
It was a peaceful and normal first hour. Well, at least for the people in it. Everyone was yelling, and the teacher had just given up on trying to stop them, and now was just browsing for a retirement home in Key West. I looked up at Jordan, who was
Guido couldn’t believe he was home alone after he arrived from middle school. Mom was usually standing in the kitchen, making him a delicious snack consisting of fruits and sandwiches, smiling brightly as she graciously served him, knowing full well that he was tired from a hard day of learning.
Peer pressure and judgment was experienced by Jack and Summer, in response to them being friends with August. Rather than abandoning August and falling into peer pressure they dared to face all of it together, despite the fact that they needed to risk and sacrifice friendships, with the intention to make August feel he is not alone and somebody understands him. They both stood up for him and got to be great companions with one another. I sat with him that first day because I felt sorry for him. That is all. Here he was, this strange-looking kid in a brand new school. “No one was talking to him. Everyone was staring at him. All the girls at my table were whispering about him. He was not the only new kid at Beecher Prep, but he was the only one everyone was talking about”, (“Summer - Pg.119). Jack and Summer became great friends with August even though it was hard due to
Everything was the same, well except for Finn and Jessica. Finn was Charlie’s best friend since before he could remember, and Jessica was the love of Charlie’s life. “Hey Charlie boy!” Finn shouted. “Hi Charlie.” Jessica murmured timdly. “Hey guys. Man this place stinks, and I’ll just never get used to waking up every morning for something I hate.” Charlie grunted. “I hate it too man, but my Pops would kill me if I didn't get good marks, and I mean kill me.” Finn explained. “Same here Charlie, I don’t think anyone really likes school, but I do well anyways. You know maybe we could all study together sometime.” Jessica said. Charlie jumped on this opportunity to hang with Jessica outside of school. “Yes! I mean um...sure I will see if I can.” Charlie eagerly said. Charlie glanced around and noticed a guy standing against a locker down the hall. “Hey guys, I should probably get to class.” Charlie said skeptically. “What do you mean Charlie? There is still 10 minutes until class starts.” Finn questioned. “ I just got to go man!” Charlie said. As Charlie approached the boy against the locker, he reached into his bag for the money he
It was raining hard like no ever on James’s 14th birthday, but he celebrated it anyways with his friend Dewey. The two of them formed a bond last year at freshman orientation and ever since then, they vowed to be best friends forever. James had brown hair, tan skin color, and was relatively short for his age. James is normally shy and introverted around school, but he tends to get playful around those who he is close with, such as Dewey. Dewey was 14-years-old and had blond hair with pale skin and was quite tall for his age. Dewey had a great sense of humor and seemed to be the courageous type of guy. Nevertheless, Mike (James’s dad) said that he was going to be gone most of the night because he served night shift for his work. Little did the two
