Friends are good to have

My theme is "Friends are good to have" because I know how it feels when your friends are there you. When you have something going on in your life that you can't face alone, who do you normally look to? I look to my friends. Friends don't judge you or mistreat you. Your friends should always be there for you, and you should do the same for them.



Home and School

At school, I always had my friends and teachers to go to. But what about at home... At home I had to choose to either call a friend or talk to my parents. My parents were always cool about letting me have a friend come over to talk to because they didn't always know exactly what was going on in my life. When I had a friend come over that was an excuse for me to get away from them, and for them to get away from me.

When I was at school, I could go to pretty much anybody I wanted to and they would talk to me. It was much easier at school to talk then it was at home. Last year Ms. Ward had me talk to a counselor. She really helped me out and told me more and more things I could do to learn how to calm myself down and just talk. I also had Devin.


This part starts in 2nd grade

In 2nd grade, I was playing tag with some people in my class and this kid wearing weird clothes comes up and asks me if he can play with us. I told him yes and asked what his name was. It was Matt. Me and Matt started talking and hanging out a lot. We were involved in some of the same things together but we didn't know. Since then, Matt and I have become pretty good friends. We still talk today, and we hung out A LOT last year.

This part was in 6th grade

In 6th grade, I was talking back to my english teacher and I got sent to the principals office. Ms. Ward is the principal. I go in there and we start talking about what I did and why I was doing it and then she told me she would be right back. She comes back later with a boy who is new to the school and says that his name is Devin. She left the room and we started talking. He told me that he was being very disruptive during class and making lots of jokes toward the teacher. I told him what I was doing. We saw eachother in the halls the next day, and the day after that, and the day after that and we started to sit by each other at lunch. To this day, we sit with eachother at lunch and hangout outside of school. Getting sent to the office couldn't have been any better.

The turning point

The turning point would be when Devin and I start hanging out outside of school. This is helpful so you don't have to worry about someone at school overhearing what you're saying.
