Weeks went by in the 6th grade and I was doing great I had good grades and loved all my teachers. When I got home from school one day I was told that my great, great grandma passed away. She was one of the nicest people you could meet and you would always love see her smiling face. One that I always looked forward to was taking her vanilla milkshakes on every Saturday, that was her favorite thing. For the longest time I was so upset and and she was all I could think about I finally realized that she was in a better place. By this time 6th grade was coming to an end and we were celebrating Cinco De Mayo, and having end of the year parties. Then I was in 7th grade, I could not wait until the school dances came and you could dress up and go hang out with all of your friends.

For me it was the other way I was excited to see what high school was all about. Just like on my first day of elementary school and middle school I had no idea where to go in the school, I was lucky to have a friend that had every class with me so that I could just follow her around.

Then came my Sophomore year, everything got a little harder like the school work. Everything seems to go by so fast and now almost Sophomore year is half
