Personal Narrative: My First Day At Oak Grove High School

Improved Essays
I have always gone to a school that was classified as a 2A. This means fewer students in each graduating class with no more than twenty students in a classroom. My first year ever transferring to a different school whose classification was a 6A ended up to be exciting, but most of all scary. However, when I started my new school there was numerous of students, nice staffs and teachers, but overall nobody that I knew.
My first day starting school at Oak Grove High School appears to happen three years ago. I was impressed to hear about how many students went there, and the big variety of different races that attended the school.

I did not speak to anybody, I just stayed to myself. I was not brave enough to just talk to random people whom I do not know or never seen before. A few weeks started to pass by and I finally gain at least three friends and of course they were girls. The only time I got to see them was in our History class, which was the only class the four of us had together. If it was not for those girls, I would have not known anything about how everything functions around at Oak Grove High School. Later on in the middle of September I ended up finding out that one of the girls I became friends with was my cousin. Even though we did not know each other as much, I was in shock to know that I had a relative who went to the school. After discovering us being related, we ended up becoming extremely close to the point we became best friends. We did not get to finish the rest of our eleventh grade together, because she ended up moving to another school. When she left I did not hang with no one else, I stayed to myself from that day forward on up to the day I got ready to graduate.
I believe I made the best decision ever by completing my last two years of high school at Oak Grove. Even though there are numerous of students, nice staffs and teachers, and I do not know anybody. I would highly recommend anyone to let their child or children attend this school to receive a good

    One of the things I had made as a goal for high school was to make it amazing, and have fond memories when looking back at it. These 4 friends where just the start of combating my struggles and achieving my goals. Because of the class schedule I had, I was unable to be in chorus like I was in seventh and eighth grade. So instead I selected Dramatics 1 to fill the empty bell, and it was a perfect choice in the end. I didn’t audition for the Fall musical “Annie”, because I was both too shy and had already been in the play the previous year.…

    Almost everyone will meet, or has met someone in college that has significantly changed their lives. For me, it didn't take long at all for me to meet that person. I met her on our second day of college of our first semester, basically my second day of my entire college career. I didn't realize it right away, but over time I noticed that she was really changing my life. I would have never met this person in high school because first of all she lives in a different town, but even if we did live in the same town, or even went to the same high school, I still would have never known her because I didn't really branch out and make a lot of friends back then.…

    College. The very thing that many of us young adults think about from the end of middle school through senior year. For some, the entire process seems to be so natural while others spend years questioning if they will even make it there.

    It’s going to be so hard to find the same job with benefits like this one. I really should go back to school.” She realized that the inducement of this was because the new girl, Viola, graduated college with a degree in early childhood and she got the same job as Amber did. Later that day, my mom came in and heard the news and she was in doldrums. She knew that Amber dropping out of high school and not engendering her education was the root of the problem.

As I grew older things started to change and it was not until I landed my first job that I began to be social. Even though I was a shy person throughout most of my life and I had no work experience, my first job led me to discover a personality I never thought I would uncover.…
