1st Month of School Experience

Hi peeps!

I made it through about a month of school which is a first for me! *cheers*

I figured I’d just pen down my experience after 1 month for my sake and of course, yours πŸ˜‰

So let the recounting begin!

When I first stepped in to my to-be class, all the students turned their heads and stared at me. I also got the shock of my life because I saw my ex-church member sitting in the front seat. More on him later.

As the admin whom I had followed up here reprimanded the class for acting like a zoo and giving the new girl a scare, I looked around and tried not to look too awkward.

I took a temporary seat next to some random boy who now always borrows my stationery and books. A few people boldly said hi to me and I said hi back because, y’know, I’m friendly and polite 😁 even though I really wished I could just ignore them because, anti social.

Although I was not very close and barely even talked to that ex-church member last time, I still followed his friends and him around because I didn’t want to be a loner. I could be a loner, no sweat. But I’m already kinda a loner in church and I didn’t want to seem too shy.

They took me on a tour around the school which was extremely helpful, although it took me a while to get my bearings.

After about a week or two, I started to feel more comfortable. Even though I barely knew these people, I still talked to them like we’ve known each other for longer than four weeks. I guess I’m finally exposing my extroverted side to new people which I don’t normally do.

My classmates are pretty friendly and helpful, although like most schools perfection doesn’t exist. In one of my farewell notes, someone wrote something about God placing me where I was for a reason and to remind me to look around and see the people who need God. I can honestly tell you that it’s so difficult being a true Christian in this schooling system, but I’m persevering and so far I think it’s safe to say I’m doing okay.

Speaking of farewells, my homeschooling friends (and some who already went to school but still wrote notes anyway) planned a farewell for me. They gave me a card with notes inside and their signatures on them. Lemme be honest with you once again. I already saw this farewell coming ages ago because.. welp let’s just say I’m too observant for my own good πŸ˜‚

So yeah that’s basically my recount of 1st month of schooling experience! Sorry for this terribly bleak post and I understand if you just skipped through.

Tl;dr School has been great for me. Here’s to greater things to come!

How hard is it to be a Christian in your school/workplace?

  1. Yayy I’m so happy that it’s going well for you so far!
    I’m homeschooled, so I am not under a lot of peer pressure to do anything stupid or give up my views, but I will be taking some classes at public school next year, so we’ll see how that goes πŸ˜›

  2. I go to a Christian school XP and I still get judged WTH IS UP WITH THAT?! I’m actually ready to go to a secular school. Too many Christians has become toxic and annoying and I don’t even feel secure in my own beliefs. I’d rather be with more open-minded individuals where we can all respect each other’s backgrounds and religions. I’ll be jarred without praying at the beginning for the first few days, but I’ll get used to it. Siyonara VSA

      1. Haha no problem it was interesting to read and sometimes we just need to get things off our chest. Hm actually it’s pretty okay. I just need to be careful of the Islamic influence and the to respect others’ religion. And of course, there’s always the never-ending pressure of a Christian standard and conduct.

    1. Oh no I’m so sorry. I may not go to a Christian school but I totally understand coz sometimes I feel that way too. But do be careful of the open-mindedness (that isn’t even a word) and don’t get too carried away! But yes I agree with you somewhat.

  3. I’m glad you made it! There will be more challenges but I bet it goes well. πŸ˜‰ ❀ I do find it hard with my specific beliefs, yes, it can get interesting. Especially to non-Christian bloggers.

  4. Homeschooling is the best, why did you go back to public school?! It’s so much more work, they use a difficult way of teaching, and as you said, it is difficult to be a true Christian!
    I started homeschooling to get AWAY from that, lol!
    Well good for you, if you’re enjoying it πŸ˜œπŸŽ‰
