Improved Essays
What Would You do for a Klondike Bar Have you ever wanted something so bad that you feel as if you would almost do anything to get it?

Going back to school was the worst part, because I had just told everyone my mom was pregnant and many of those people would ask me how my mom was daily. Which made things even harder to be able to go to school. It was easy to tell people my mom was pregnant, but it was heartbreaking to tell people that she lost the baby. I didn’t go to school the day after we found out, but the second day I had to go back and was greeted with uncomfortable conversations about my
