Aaahhhh, the most common struggle every teenager faces. Now for me personally, I don’t have problem with learning, it’s pretty cool you know, adding new knowledge every day but what sends shivers down my spine is the types of people there.
Dun dun dun.
From 2013 to 2016 I used to study somewhere else than where I study now and I had so much fun there. I had friends, a group of friends to be exact, I lived with my family (yes, like we would have a proper breakfast, dinner and lunch together in the dining room), I would go cycling around the city there. It was great. until last year when everybody started going, I decided maybe I should go too. Now the reason I moved was not only that. I realised that the school I went to was kinda flopping at teaching. Since it was a school only for the children of the people who worked at the embassies, there was only like 9 of us in one class and I bet the teachers didn’t even give a shit about us which is why I skipped class with a boy once. (now that’s another story *wink*)
Then all of a sudden my future seemed to bother me a lot. If I graduated there, I wouldn’t be able to go to that many universitites. And the thought of what I could be missing out at school (as in studying, not school social activities) made me want to move more. So after discussing with my parents for about a month, they decided to send me to the school I used to go to before moving with my parents. And there you go, I flew here in November and so I transferred.
Everything seemed to happen so fast. Like in a blur or something like that which meeaaannss that I transferred in the middle of a semester. IN THE MIDDLE OF A SEMESTER.
I never knew that was horrible until it happened to me. Now you might telll me things like ‘you used to go there, you alredy have friends, it’s like reuniting again’. Well, guess what, I was not in the same grade as my old classmates. In fact, I was a grade higher than them.
By the way, I didn’t skip grades or anything. I’m not that smart. It just happened because of the different school system of the two countries. I’m just a student who gets A,B and Cs.
So moving in the middle of a semester had bunch of consequences. And when I entered the class, it felt like everyone was watching me. One horrible thing also happened on the first day actually. I realised every girl in my class was so frikin pretty and fit and skinny. My confidence went from 50 to 0. I made couple of friends, some of them were nice, some were okay.
Making friends wasn’t so bad. I was even surprised myself because I expected myself to be the outsider who will not talk to anyone at school for like a week or something. So first day was no biggie. It was until we started studying. Boy did I not know what the heck they were talking about. I perfectly understood all the english classes but classes in my mom’s langauge? NO. I didn’t understand a single shit but evetually I got help from classmates and here I am, going to high school.
Not actually high school because they go by 9th grade and blah blah but in other ways, you can say I’m going to a freshman in high school.
Oh, and by the way, I need to tell you guys one thing you should never ever do at school.
Pretend you like a certain thing just to befriend people.Or shortly. be someone you’re not.
Never ever do that.
I actually told them I really liked korean dramas. Now, don’t mistake me here, I do like to watch them sometimes but I never was a fan of them. Being a fan and just liking have a big difference. And I guess I was having a problem finding a difference between the two. So for the rest of the school year the conversation between the girls and I would be about dramas. Also, some of them were very interested in where I came from. Which was good…..?
And for the boys? I don’t wanna go there. Yet. Maybe later.
Until next crisis,
Nobody. (I could be anyone. even beyonce)
