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 😉
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 😂
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?
