I still remember being two years old, the smallest child in the class and “the most carefree person we’ve ever seen” as my parents always say. The long camel skirt hanging from my hips and almost touching the ground was a sight that didn’t disappear until the age of 13 when I started wearing my own clothes.
I have lots of memories from school but probably the year I still remember as it was yesterday is Year 10. Turning into a teenager who only cared about boys and appearances affected me in every way. I decided during that time that studying was not very important and my grades started to drop. Hopefully, my math’s teacher, who is teaching me this year too, was willing to help me find motivation and forget about stupid things. I owe her all of my knowledge and when I achieve my goals she is constantly on my mind. Parents are obviously very supportive but to know that your teacher wants you to succeed is the best feeling in the world!
The following years, 11 and 12, were quite strange for me. Despite thinking I had the world at my feet, when I reached last years of secondary school surprisingly everything started to go wrong. Sadly, sometimes life is very unfair and people aren’t always what they seem to be. After a “fight”, which certainly never occurred, I lost one of the most important persons in my life. We still talk but we all know that after the storm things never go back to the way they used to be. But that is life my friends.
Now, a year later, I’m very happy to say that I’ve met new and incredible people who I consider friends. After that weird period of time I decided that it was time to stop moping and find a solution for my loneliness. Even though I share some classes with the person that I least care about, I got new friends with whom I share interests and aims. In less than a month I will be graduating and moving house to go to the university of my dreams.
Sometimes life seems so hard that you don’t even know how to redo everything and start all over again. But I can assure you that it goes on and you should always try new roads that lead you where you belong.
