Making New Friends

Have you ever moved to a new place? Well if you have you know how I feel. The reason we moved from Texas to Alabama is because my dad needed a job. At his old job they where taking advantage of him. He was also not getting paid enough and they where lying to him about almost everything. So we decided to move.
My uncle was already at Huntsville so we decided to go live with him. Another reason we came to Alabama was because my uncle already had him a job. We also didn’t want to be alone and over here in Alabama we had family members. His new job was better and it was something he was good at also they paid him more. So we decided to give it a try.

Of course if you move to a new place you need a new house, job, and the worst part a new school. There was a good and bad side for starting a new school. The good thing was that I was going to make new friends. But on the other hand I was going to have to learn a new language! I used to have no friends at all back at my old school so I don’t know if coming here was a mistake or a good thing.

It was my first day of school and I was super nervous. When my parents went to go drop me off, I stared at everybody and I didn’t want to stay. So I started to cry! My parents told me I had to stay so I did. I didn’t talk to anybody but two girls that helped me. And also nobody talked to me because I wouldn’t know what they where saying. I felt so lonely and invisible, I was very shy. There was a girl named Kathie that translated me. There was also this other girl who helped me know where everything was her name is Megan.

When I got home I told my parents that I didn’t want to go back to school. I felt like everybody had gotten in the car and was having fun and I guess I fell out of it because that is how I felt.
Everybody was having an awesome time. My sister had already made friends and my dad already had a job. My mom was only at home taking care of my baby brother. I didn’t want to eat or do anything at all. But finally I came to a solution to learn the language and make friends. I told myself that it all wasn’t going to happen like a snap It was going to take time so encouraged myself to do that.
And know I am in fifth grade so that tells me that I made it through!
