Personal Narrative: Who I Am I

Who I Am
I have changed a lot so far in high school. No one is still the same person they were in junior high, and definitely not the same person they were in elementary school. Everyone is always changing constantly and that is one of the most beautiful things in life. It is kind of like how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. The caterpillar is still the same, but it is just a better version of themselves.
In freshman year, I did not really care about anything. I lost many of my friends from junior high, because they had changed so much over the past summer and I am guessing that I changed a lot too. To be honest, most of my friends from junior high were not even important to me. I did not care that I lost them. How sad is that? Your friends

We were in orchestra together, we listened to the same kind of music, and I needed someone in my life. I had another good friends, like Nicole and Audrey, but Rachel was the most important to me. My friend Katie ended up blocking me on almost everything. I had no idea why she did that, but she did. It hurt me a lot knowing that the one person I trusted with everything did not want to be in my life anymore and I had no idea why. Was she jealous that I had other friends? Was it because I had not talked to her as much as I used to? Or was it just because she decided that I was not important to her anymore? I still do not know the whole reason why we stopped being …show more content…
I went to Homecoming, and hung out with my friends all the time. I got a job at McDonalds as soon as I turned sixteen and I loved it there. The people I worked with were amazing. They were always being optimistic and they were always there for me. None of them knew how important it was to me to have people I could always talk to about life. They were just so amazing and I loved them. I spent a lot of time outside of school at McDonalds, and so did a lot of other people around my age. They really helped me realize how great life is. We were basically a family at McDonalds and I loved that more than anything. I did not really enjoy the work, but it was worth it because I got to be around all of my friends. I was basically being paid to hang out.
Junior year has just started and I can honestly say that I am a happy person. There are still days where I feel depressed and suicidal again, but those days are extremely rare. There are days where I want to grab a razor blade and hurt myself to make myself feel better, but I do nit do that anymore because it makes no sense. I still do not talk to my friends about the problems I have and I still bottle things up inside, but I am working on that. Life is getting

    It was a crave there, the food trucks were everywhere. People never had to leave their jobs when they were on break, there was always food truck just sitting on the lots, so it made it easier, for people to enjoy something fresh but fast. And that’s where it started for me I had seen all the love that people had for the food trucks. I had already love to cook but owning my own truck would give me the chance to do something else that I loved to do which was to talk to people. However, in my research I have found…

    I still did not truly accept the fact that I had depression, because how could I? I wasn’t on medication or anything. But I did, and my family knew it to. I remember always feeling like my friends didn’t truly like me, that they felt it was more of a chore to be my friend. I like to call my depression, my untrusting friend.…

    In fact, having my whole family present enjoying a meal together makes me extremely happy because we hardly eat a nice meal together, due to the fact that my family and I are all busy with either, school, work, or other activities that we have going on. Furthermore, people can bring their date to Denny’s, have a good time and save a bit of money on top of that. For instance, the last time I took a girl out to eat at Denny’s, we both relished our meal, had a fantastic time and I saved a generous sum of money that wonderful, night. To put it succinctly, Denny’s will always have a place in my…

    For as long as I can remember, conversations have left me drained and anxious, and the limitations in my ability to communicate comfortably used to inhibit my day to day life. In my mind, talking to strangers, and even those closest to me, felt like an enormous obstacle that I would never get past. Every conversation led me to believe that the people I was speaking with were judging me. The situation became even worse when I started to believe that anyone who glanced in my direction thought of me negatively, and my suspicion that if I glanced at someone, they were most certainly going to stare at me, did not help matters any. To rid myself of this outrageous anxiety, I chose to volunteer.…

    I was lost on why I could not get anyone to love me and why my life had been spiraling down ever since I lost my best friend. I believed that there was something truly wrong with me. I never thought that perhaps I was the one who needed to change her personality and her mindset in order to keep a steady healthy relationship. I loathed any time I had to spend alone, so I would either spend time with the wrong people or I 'd waste my time alone. I typically spent time with the people who did not make an effort to benefit me as an individual, and honestly these friends could care less whether I was around them or not.…

    I feel as though I’ve lost more than I’ve loved here. If there was someone I cared about they have likely died, moved away, ignored me, used me, and a rare few have treated me very kindly. This is how I feel, I realize that most of these people probably had reasons for doing this, but it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t still hurt. Even though I can’t stand to be mean to people I wish that I could be just a bit more, I don’t know, I guess, mean? It bothers me to be the one left out of a conversation because no one bothered to notice me or my…

    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. Beginning my first day of high school was so nerve-wrecking because being a freshman was not as exciting as I thought. The school consisted of almost 4,000 students and only…

    Although I still consume a larger amount of junk food than I should, I like to think that these unhealthy options are balanced out with the healthy choices I make as well. My family never thinks there is too much food. They consider any event to be a celebration filled with food that can feed an entire country. Too much food is not in their vocabulary, but I can not complain. These are the days I live for, including my other relatives that would not miss any event that involves eating.…

    They took care of us for the next three weeks and cooked us many food. My mom’s side of the family made me feel at home and they were easy people to talk to without hindering. Spending time with them was a great memory because we had lots of laughter and fun. These days with my family are the memories that I will remember forever and hold…

    It is a fact, everyone loves food and everyone has their favorite restaurant picked out from all the rest. Several families along with romantic couples use restaurants to gather and discuss life. In my opinion, restaurants are a wonderful privilege that help us get away and relax. The most satisfying restaurant in West Virginia would be Olive Garden because the restaurant is beautifully pristine, the service is extremely pleasant, and the food is absolutely scrumptious. As a child, I was always taught to value cleanliness because not everyone has it, and as a customer of today I do appreciate it greatly.…
